Properly Scandalous (Young and Scambitious #2) by Mina V. Esguerra

Some thieves get away with it, and appear to live the rest of their lives in comfort and luxury. But not without meeting twenty-something society brats Jane del Mundo and Gabriel Grande first. Jane and Gabriel are not in the business of apprehending them though, but in recovering what has been stolen, in very specific amounts.

How are society girl Elizabeth Madrid and young actress Truffles Marquez connected? Not in any way Truffles is aware of, until a government official with a very specific crush unwittingly becomes the next mark for Jane and the gang.

Paano mo ibabalik ang nakaraan at itatama ang mali?

Paano mo tuturuan ang puso na huwag ng magmahal dahil hindi rin ito magtatagal?

When Franco De Guzman found out that he has a rare heart problem na posibleng ikamatay niya ng kahit anong oras ay agad siyang nabahala tungkol sa dalawang bagay: Una, mawawalan ng isang guwapong lalaki sa mundo at pangalawa ay hindi pa siya nakakahingi ng tawad kay Georgina Escudero sa mga kasalanan niya noong nasa high school sila.

Nang muli niyang makita si Georgina ay nagbago ang lahat. Ang puso niyang may expiration date ay tila gusto pang humingi ng extra life para lamang makasama ito ng matagal. Ang puso niyang hindi naman marunong umibig ay tila gustong kumuha ng crash course para lang matutunan niya kung paano siya mamahalin ni Georgina kahit alam niyang ikakasal na ito kay James.

Paano niya sasabihin kay Georgina na huwag na si James at siya na lang?

Prince Telmé Guldbrandsen has been groomed since childhood to become a Prince of the Blood and Commander of the Legion.

GITARISTA by Reev Robledo

The 1970s: Rise of cosmopolitan Manila.

This historical novella takes place during the growth of the Philippines’ capital as a metropolis. Buildings towered over paved roads, vehicles caused traffic jams, business districts were expanding, and the music and arts scene was a burgeoning form of entertainment and a stark representation of the country’s national identity.

Raised by a single mother in the province, guitar virtuoso Alejandro Sebastian is thrust into the classical music scene when he gets accepted into The Conservatory of Music. With the National Music Competitions for Young Artists (NAMCYA) a few months away, eccentric maestro Pablo Rocca trains his gifted protégé to become a guitar grandmaster while Dani, a free-spirited violinist, provides friendship and inspiration.

From Manila’s highbrow venues to its darkest corners, Alejandro’s musical journey will change all he has known and all he has ever wanted to become.

A bittersweet romance between truth and destiny, Gitarista is a young man’s search for the symphony of his life.
