Hey, the story that I would like to recommend is by Torilicious and is called Dream Keeper it currently has 2.4K reads and is in the Adventure category. It is beautifully written, has amazing choices, and an original plot. It deserves more recognition and I absolutely love it. I hope that you decide to choose and read my recommendation. Thank you.

I’m such a doofus I thought you meant comment on your insta post :hushed: :sweat_smile:

I would say my absolute favorite story (at the moment, at least​:wink:) is Love me Wilde by the remarkable @michaelabri_ on instagram. It’s got that beautiful, aesthetically pleasing directing that I love, with a well-paced storyline that doesn’t rush into the romance and genuinely leaves me wondering how on earth the characters are going to get together. It’s a story that definitely deserves a lot more recognition because I can tell the author puts a lot of love into it and it’s one of those stories that I’m really really really glad I decided to tap on. :heart::heart:

I’m new here but I can see this forum deserves more members! And this contest is a perfect way to promote it :grin:

Soooo, I’m a little ashamed to recommend my own story :see_no_evil:
But here my entry: Not an Angel by Marion on Episode.
Here is a very brief synopsis:
“Ange’s only propose is to take over the family business, and she refuses to commit to a relationship. But threats against her family might change her plans…”.

My reccomendation is Blood In Belfast. Set in Belfast in 1993 during The Troubles, a young woman attempts to survive and find love. This is a great contest idea!
