If You Could, Would You Dare?

Bookin' It Reviews is proud to welcome author Dawne Prochilo here today. 

Dawne Prochilo is a multi selling erotic romance author of six novels, two more being released later this year, a freelance online writer and blog queen. She oversees eight blogs daily, is the administrator of seven facebook pages and groups and loves promoting other authors.

Many of us imagine what would happen if we had a second chance or could back in time. Would you date that person? Would you have married the person you did? And what about the proverbial 'one' that got away?

We've all had those moments in life- and with the ever growing popularity of social networks, we can reconnect with those past love connections. But how dangerous are those consequences of meeting the person?

We all have our fantasies...we all ask the question 'what if'...but how many of us dare. In my newest release, When We Meet Again, the heroine takes that leap of Fate to find out what she missed out on all those years ago.

So my question to you is this- would you, if you could, turn back the clock and make your fantasy come true?

Answer the question and you'll be entered into a contest to win this novel. Contest ends on Sunday July 24 and winner will be announced Monday.

Blurb: How many of us have wished we could turn back the clock? Go back to one specific time that would change our lives forever and it would be exactly how we wanted it.

Brynn Saunders has wished that for over two decades and while she can't change her life, a strange twist of fate is giving her a second chance at her one true love.

Best friends Ethan Miller and Brynn have loved each other unconditionally since high school and while their lives were entwined early, they never shared the intimacy they felt for the other.

After an abusive marriage for Brynn and a loveless marriage for Ethan, they've reconnected twenty four years later and are acting upon what they never had the chance to do years ago.

Dawne is giving away a copy of When We Meet Again to one lucky commenter.

  1. Ty for having me today Talina- and to everyone that will post... we've all been there and wished for things to be different

  2. Dawne, the premise for this books sounds absolutely wonderful. I quite often do the whole 'what if' either on my own daydreaming or with hubby ;-)
    I truly hope the book does extremely well.
    *bites n kisses*

  3. Awesome post as always. I loved this book.

  4. I'd do it if I could choose to return to my own timeline, ala Star Trek TNG (Q gives Cap'n P the chance to right something). I'd love to see how my life would have turned out if I'd made a pivotal choice in 1986 or 7. Would I be with my soul mate or a different person? And OMG....your book sounds exactly like my life!!! Gotta put this on on the TBB list.

  5. If I could have, would have, should have. Yes….for a long time, I used to think that given another chance, I would take that dare in a heartbeat.

    She was a wild-child, beautiful, successful in business, smart and sexuality incarnate. She made me laugh and she drove me to the brink of tears. Thoughts of her filled my every waking minute and I couldn’t tell if I was in lust or in love. Do I take a leap of faith and follow my “little-head”, who doesn’t always make the best decisions. Or, do I stick with the security of my routine but, comfortable relationship?

    I yielded to the fear of change and I stayed. But, every single frigging day, for nine months afterwards, I regretted staying. But then one morning I woke up, turned to look at the beautiful woman lying next to me, who had waited unwaveringly for me to see the light, and I knew in my heart that I’d made the right choice.

  6. Oh, yes, sometimes I do wish I had some romance experiences to do again. How different some of them would be!
    Enjoyed the excerpt!

  7. This book sounds fantastic! I am sure nearly all of us out there wish for just a chance like this!

  8. Several times probably. There are incidents where I could have found more fun and passion and oddly enough correct a few mistakes. The idea of going back in time to perhaps fix a few mistakes spawned an idea for a novel for me though, so we'll see what happens when I sit down to plot it!

  9. If I could I would absolutely turn back the clock and live out a fantasy if I actually had the courage to do it:) I really like the set-up of When We Meet Again... I'll have to add it to my wishlist. If I can't actually turn back the clock for myself well then I might as well read about those who can:)

  10. I really enjoy stories about second chances. I'm not sure I would want to turn back time because I have learned so much from my experiences but I would like another chance to see what can happen now in the present.

  11. Yes, I would take the chance again. Of course, my hubby could never know. I have few regrets in the romance department but there is one that I would be willing to take that chance with.

  12. Actually, I don't really have any fantasies. Since at 48, I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up, I wouldn't turn back the clock. Life's been good as is and without direction, I don't see how I could improve it.

  13. Wow, great comments everyone!

    That's a unique out look, Anne, and a positive one in my opinion. There are a few things I would take the chance on and turn the clock back for but there is still so much ahead of me I will agree with you and wait to see what life has in store for me. One thing is for certain though, I now know to reach out and take risks a little more often.

  14. Fabulous answers and comments everyone- when I wrote this book my mind was drifting back to years gone by and the premise of the plot was born. We all, mainly women, have this fantasy at least once and I knew many women would be able to relate to this book.

  15. Great premise, great post, Dawne. Yes, there was one moment, one night, that I wish I'd handled differently. But it might have changed a lot of other things, and frankly, it wouldn't be worth it. Fun to think about, though.

  16. thank you for the giveaway! yes, if i could go back, i would make my fantasy come true. how different life would be. :)


Sorry I've had to turn on word verification! I hate those darn things as much as you probably do but the bot spammers are eating me alive! We still want to hear from you IF you are a valued reader of BIR. Thank you for taking the time to stop in and enjoy my post!
