Some wounds never show: Somewhere to Begin-@MikaJolie1 #Romance #amreading @Barclay_PR

Can two souls with fractured parts be the best cure for each other’s wounds? Find out the first book in Mika Jolie’s latest #contemporaryromance series, Poison and Wine, with SOMEWHERE TO BEGIN.



There are wounds that never show on the body.

For twenty-nine years, Colbie Bennington does as expected with an eternal smile stained on her lips. The biggest chances she’s ever taken can be counted on one hand, three fingers to be exact—her battered red chucks, painting her toenails a vibrant blue, and her wedding dress. Always the dutiful daughter and a Stepford fiancée, she has never acted on impulse, never been in love.

She’s never lived.

On her wedding day, Colbie ends a toxic relationship, drops the fake smile, and says, “I can’t do this anymore.”

Navy SEAL Zander Serrano returns home broken and burdened with a volcano of remorse. Too trapped in a mental war to be at peace and too damaged to be at war, he shuts the world out. The last thing he expects is to feel, especially for a runaway bride with her own baggage.

Two empty hearts marred in different spots find themselves drawn to one another. Each with their own scars.  Some, the world can see. Others, unseen to the naked eye.

They say two broken people should not be together. But for Colbie and Zander, their attraction is undeniable, unexpected.

Can two souls with fractured parts be the best cure for each other’s wounds?

Starting over is never easy, but sometimes in life, everyone needs somewhere to begin.

Character Interview with Colbie Bennington and Zander Serrano from Somewhere to Begin by Mika Jolie



What do you do for a living?


Colbie: (Smiles) With the help of Zander his brothers, we refurbished an old bookstore, which recently opened. What I love about Shakespeare & Company is that we carry a lot of work from Indie and local writers and of course my love for classic literature is on full display. It’s amazing.


What is your greatest fear?


Colbie: It used to be not living my life the way I wanted to.


What do you wear when you go to sleep?


Colbie: Typically, I’m a pair of shorts and a cotton tank type of girl when I go to sleep. I’m all about comfort. Recently I went to a Bruce Springsteen concert with Zander and he made a mistake of gifting me with a T-shirt, as if the awesome tickets weren’t enough. (Laughs) Right now, it has become my favorite sleeping attire.


What is your most prized possession?


Colbie: I know this will sound cliché but my most prized possession is not something tangible. I’m finally happy with who I am. My heart is happy, that is my most prized possession. (Looks at her engagement ring) and my engagement ring.


What do you think your greatest weakness is?


Colbie: I can be a bit passive. I’ve come a long way


What do you do for a living?


Zander: I’m a Navy Seal. (Shakes his head) I used to be a SEAL. My brothers and I are in the process of opening a construction business together.


What is your greatest fear?


Zander: To be deprived of strength and completely dependent on someone else.


What do you wear when you go to sleep?


Zander: (Smiles) Nowadays nothing.


What is your most prized possession?


Zander: My Navy Seal dog tags. They are a great reminder of who I used to be, who I’ve become, and who I’ll never be again.


What do you think your greatest weakness is?


Colbie: The ability to accept some things were not my fault.
