Cover Reveal and Guest Post: Twisted Reflections by Shay West

Back Blurb:

Alexis Davenport is learning to come to grips with her ability to travel through time, but she still hasn’t been able to stop the evil Drifter, and his Master, from trying to alter the past.
When she travels back to ancient Egypt, Alex gets a most unexpected surprise; she meets someone who can help her figure out how to use her powers, another Traveler like herself.
But can Alex learn how to control her gift before Drifter finds a way to stop her from meddling in his Master’s plans?

Twisted Reflections is the highly anticipated Book Two, in The Adventures of Alexis Davenport Series.

Soul Mates

When it comes to books, I prefer action compared to romance. Not that a little romance is necessarily a bad thing, I just like to read fast-paced books with battles and conflict. I prefer to read about how two people fall in love rather than the act of love itself. What brought the two together? Are they attracted only physically at first but love blossoms later? Do they hate each other only to find they have more in common than they realize? Are they drawn together like a moth to a flame, unable to resist one another? Are they forced into a marriage that their families arranged before they were born? There are so many ways people come to love one another and decide to make that commitment to stay together. It’s this aspect that fascinates me.

When it came to writing my YA series, the Adventures of Alexis Davenport, I knew I HAD to have some sort of romance. Or at the very least a serious crush. Because let’s face it, as a teenager, we tend to have massive crushes rather than a deep-rooted love. But these crushes can be an all-consuming force that robs us of what little sanity we have.

But I also went a step further and gave Alex something deeper than a crush, only she doesn’t quite understand the significance. Each time she travels back in time, she encounters a boy that she feels drawn to, almost as though she knows him better than she knows herself. Isn’t this the kind of love we all dream of? Finding that one person we are destined to be with and living happily ever after?

Will this boy be Alex’s one and only? You’ll have to read the Adventures of Alexis Davenport series and find out :)
