Pushing the Boundaries Blog Tour: Guest Post and Giveaway for Signed Books and Haitian Art

Pushing the Boundaries (Off Limits #1)
by Stacey Trombley
Publication Date: January 16, 2017
Publisher: Entangled Teen Crush

Myra goes to Haiti with one goal: take the photograph that will win a scholarship and prove to her uber-traditional family that she has what it takes to be a photographer instead of a doctor. Her camera has always been her shield against getting too close to anyone, but she didn’t expect the hot teen translator who has an ability to see past her walls.

Elias needs his job as a translator to provide for his siblings. He can’t afford to break the rule forbidding him from socializing with a client. Except this girl Myra insists on going outside the city to capture the perfect picture, and he steps in as her guide in order to keep her safe.

The deeper they travel into the country, the harder they fall for each other. Now they’re both taking risks that could cost each other their dreams.

If they get too close—it could ruin both their lives.



Guest Post from the Author:
Pushing the Boundaries is the first in the “Off-Limits” series, which means there will be more books like this one! Though it’s not a traditional series, because they will be connected thematically, more than literally. If we see the same characters again, it will be in side roles not as main characters.

Each Off-limits novel will stand on its own (no cliff hangers!), but all will deal with romance that is “off-limits.” Since they’re all contemporary, I get to really dig into ways that romance in our modern world can be “forbidden,” which is super fun!

For example, the next book my editor and I are developing has a romance with the best friend’s little sister. (I loooove this trope, so I’m super excited!!) It’s also going to have some bits of football, a secret illness and some broken promises! Hopefully, I’ll be able to say more soon!

Other things that may sneak up in my Off-Limits books are:

Good girl+bad boy (or better yet, good boy + bad girl! I love twisting around tropes!)
Sports rivals in love
Socialite/celebrity and the “help”
Best friends to lovers
A (soon-to-be-broken) promise not to fall in love

I would love to hear what kind of things you’d love to see in a teen romance! Hate any of these? Dying to see one? Have new ideas? Post them in the comments, and I’ll totally take it into consideration!

  1. I have never traveled outside of the U.S. I would like to visit Great Britain and Germany and the Netherlands.

  2. I've never been outside the US. I'd like to go to Spain one day :)

  3. I've had the good fortune of being able to visit many different countries-- on a shoestring. :) I always loved traveling around places where I don't speak the local language.

    UN-fortunately, I haven't done any traveling since early grad school. I went to Sri Lanka then, to do play therapy with children-- who spoke Tamil. (I speak Spanish, but that was of no use at all. :) ) It was a totally unique, mind-blowing, and amazing experience.
