Author Interview

What is your book about?

A: It is a self help book about love, relationships and sex that focuses on what to do when your dating and what to do once you’ve said “I do.”

There are many self help books about relationships. What makes yours different?

A: Unlike books like “The Rules” or “ How to Snag a man” this book isn’t about playing hard to get, instead its about winning overall in your dating life. Also while other books stop after you get engaged, this is a book that you’ll be able to come back to after you say “ I do”.

What is your next project?

A: I’m working on a companion project, a set of guidelines for men. I want to create a balance so that it’ll be easier for couples to improve their relationships.

In today’s savvy world, most writers use computers or laptap, have you ever written parts of your book in paper?

A: Yes! I always start by writing my thoughts paper then transfer them to the computer.

If you’re a mom writer, how do you balance your time?

A: I don’t write when the kids are at home, so I normally write when they are in school and on the days when I know I wont pick up the kids. So I don’t rush my writing. My times are usually at noon to around 2 pm, and sometimes at night when every one is asleep. I am a night person, I can stay awake for a while at night.

What is the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?

A: Leaving my country, leaving my identity, my job that I worked hard for, for years, to be with my family. It is hard to move to a country without friends, a job and where the dominant language isn’t your native language. I lived in a third world country. There you can easily make money and be happy even if you don’t finish college, you just work hard. Moving here was a little bit intimidating for me, but I’m so happy. I just received my citizenship and now I’m an author. Things happen in our lives that we don’t expect to happen but there’s always a purpose.

Author’s Bio:

What do you get when you mix a strict Catholic upbringing, a strong curiosity for the opposite sex, and the need to grow up quickly? If you’re lucky you get an outcome like Jessica Bunevacz, the vivacious and outspoken first time author behind Date Like a Girl, Marry Like a Woman: The Polished Woman’s Guide to Love, Romance, and Sex.

Born Jessica Rodriguez in the Philippines and raised by her grandparents after the separation of her mother and father, Bunevacz was thrust into the role of provider after the murder of her mother when she was fifteen. With four siblings relying on her she began work early, first as a live mannequin and later as a model, actress, talent manager and television host. The jobs not only helped her to support her siblings, but also her first two children. One of her proudest moments while working in entertainment was as the force behind a project called “Miss Ugly No More” where women were showed how they could feel and look their best. Juggling family and work Bunevacz was not content to simply sit on the sidelines while life passed her by, and dating became her favorite contact sport.

Traveling frequently for work and fascinated by men it wasn’t long before she developed a set of rules to snag them, and guidelines for how she could remain at her best without being bested by the games others were playing. It wasn’t long before she became a self-proclaimed MANnizer, capable of capturing and holding the attention of whoever interested her, while also continuing to do what was in her best interest as both a mother and entrepreneur with both family and a business to protect.

A romantic at heart however she soon stopped her pursuit of “Mr. Right Now” when she met the man who was “Mr. Right”, the man who became her husband. Newly married, she found herself rethinking everything she knew and realized that the same qualities that made a woman an amazing girlfriend didn’t necessarily work for a wife. Rather than wait for someone else to write a marriage manual, she retooled her dating rules for herself to apply for a life after marriage. Jessica Bunevacz is now a happily married wife and mother of three currently residing in California.

While her life has been unconventional she has no regrets, and lives with the understanding that we all have the same basic desire: to feel loved, whether it’s just for one night or for an entire lifetime. Using her own life experiences as a basis she develop real-world relationship advice to help women feel more confident and comfortable whether they’re dating or have already said “I do”.

Second Chance Love

My review of Love Unbroken


This is a story involving Emma and Trey. Emma previously relocated to Diamond Creek to find her biological sister after finding out she was adopted, and to escape her abusive marriage to Gary. Initially, Emma is closed off about her previous marriage and doesn’t talk about it. Emma blames herself for getting involved and staying with Gary as long as she did, as she is a therapist and in her mind should have known better. Emma is continuing to be victimized by her past marriage with Gary and doesn’t feel she is worthy of love, and has kept herself shut off from the possibility of love.

Trey, is a widowed, single father of a 6-year-old boy, Stuart, and is an attorney and pilot. It is through Stuart as to how Emma and Trey met and they start a relationship. Emma is very worried about her past and feels that she isn’t good enough due to her past. As Emma opens up to her biological sister and her friends, she begins to heal and allow Trey into her world.

Emma has been receiving private phone calls to her cell phone on periodic occasions since she divorced Gary. Finally, Emma opens up to her friends and Trey about these calls, and soon Gary is in Diamond Creek. Gary’s presence shows Emma that her past world of pain with Gary can now lead to a future of love and support through her family, friends, Trey and Stuart.

Love Unbroken (Diamond Creek, Alaska Novels Book 3)

This is the second book that I have read by J.H. Croix in her Diamond Creek, Alaska Novels Book Series. I previously read and reviewed, Follow Love, the second book of the series. The nice thing about this series is each book can be read on its own and you don’t have to read the entire series.
