Siding with Plato: A Romantic Comedy Chick Lit About College Life, Love, and Chaos

Siding With Plato is a romantic laugh-out-loud chick lit novel about Being Young, Beautiful, and a Seriously Hot Mess! Brooke Aarons can’t get to college fast enough. Leaving behind her small town life, she intends to transform herself into a brilliant psychologist at the University of Texas, with no distractions to slow her down. But when a twist in her plans lands her on double date with the school’s star jock – and worse, enjoying it – Brooke has to wonder if she’s the one who needs her head examined. James Cartwright’s easy life, endless bucks, and long line of willing girls should make him a non-starter for Brooke, but as she learns, the psychology behind a bad crush is a whole lot messier of a subject.

Praise for the Book

“This book hit home! Very funny and fast and fun read! I hope she makes this a series! LOVED IT!!!”

“I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an escape back into the best years of your life! A MUST READ.”

“Buy 2 copies of this relatable book – one for yourself and one for your best friend.”

“Siding With Plato is a must read for every girl who has gone away to college! It reminded me of my college years and the relationships between different boys, but most importantly the amazing friendships that were created. I could relate to all of the characters at one time or another. Siding With Plato is well written, funny, witty, and full of emotion. I definitely recommend reading this book!!”

V-Day feelin’ it or not so much?

Hi everybody.

So it’s February 14th and you know what that means … ♥ for those of you who love the day …  😦 for those of you who don’t.

If you met me in person and we were talking about ‘the day’, I might pretend to think Valentine’s Day is no big deal, play the holiday off. I might act aloof, maybe make excuses about how even if a guy asked me, I’d be way too busy washing my hair to go clubbing, or say I’d go to the movies but there’s nothing worth seeing, or that I can’t go to dinner because I’m on the caveman diet. I’d also be full of crap. We’ve all had those days, or years.  I myself was cynical, jaded and suspicious. Attractive right? Well I’d been burned.

I’m not so much the mushy type, but I am a romantic. I like getting flowers, I like it when I get kissed on the forehead and I like reading books where a guy says amazing things to the heroine. Things that I’d gladly bash her perfect little head in for so I could take her place in the scene. Er, if the scene were real, which meant the guy actually existed … oops which means so does the heroine, and I’m now a psycho killer.

Never mind.

Point is that girl was never me. Not really. Until it was. Because I met Harrison.

All that to say I am throwing my usually cool, I don’t care attitude to the four winds and share some quotes that sort of make me *sigh* Yeah. Words I got to appreciate once the right guy fought for me, broke me down and built me up again.

Here goes …

♥ “For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.” ~ Judy Garland

♥ “The moment my lips touch yours, it will be your first kiss. Because if you’ve never felt anything when someone’s kissed you, then no one’s ever really kissed you. Not the way I plan on kissing you.”  ~ Collen Hoover, Hopeless
♥ “Baby, no one would ever make the mistake of using the word ugly with you. Especially with me around.” He pushed the curls off my face, his fingers leaving a burning trail. “Everything about you is beautiful and sexy as hell.”  ~ Katie McGarry, Pushing the Limits

♥ “I’m going to walk over to you,” I say, taking one step at a time in her direction like I’m talking down a jumper. “I’m going to put my arms around you and I’m going to hold you,” I pause before taking the last step, “and you’re going to let me.”  ~ Katja Millay The Sea of Tranquility

♥ “Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living. You said I killed you–haunt me then. The murdered do haunt their murderers. I believe–I know that ghosts have wandered the earth. Be with me always–take any form–drive me mad. Only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! It is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!”  ~Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights

♥ “I have for the first time found what I can truly love–I have found you. You are my sympathy–my better self–my good angel–I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you–and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one.” ~ Charlotte Bronte, Jane Erye

♥ “We live and breathe words. …. It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them. Reading your words, what you wrote, how you were lonely sometimes and afraid, but always brave; the way you saw the world, its colors and textures and sounds, I felt–I felt the way you thought, hoped, felt, dreamt. I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling with you. I dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted–and then I realized that truly I just wanted you.”  ~Cassandre Clare, Clockwork Prince

Well … at some point I just have to stop because I could go on all day. If you love young adult romace I bet you could, too. So what about you? Can you leave me with a favorite quote or book that pulls you from quiet respectability to sappy romantic? Or maybe you can share why you don’t ‘do’ V-day? Come on … if I did it so can you 🙂

Love you guys!
