Forever Night Stand summary:
Brandy Curtis is a strong and independent career woman who does not care for commitment. She prefers no strings-attached, one night stands because that’s all she can give with what little free time she has. This is the life she has chosen and the life she is used to.
However, everything changed when she met Ivo, a gorgeous doctor with irresistible charm. He was just supposed to be another hookup, but he quickly became so much more. It started as a one night stand which was followed by another, and another. The more nights they spent together, the more Brandy felt that life had given her something to live for.
Things seemed perfect… until a visit to the doctor sends her world crashing. The timing couldn’t be worse. As her heart gets closer to Ivo, her memories begin to fade.
With her family history of Alzheimer’s and at great risk of acquiring the disease, Brandy will take the chance to live her life with Ivo and fight the condition that threatens to claim her forever.

How it all started for Ysa:
I joined Wattpad back 2011 because I was stalking my fave author PhoebeGardens. She started in booksie and when she left and joined wp community I followed her. I read so many wonderful stories until one day I thought of a story that I wanted to read but it hasn’t been written yet and so I wrote it. I’ve been writing in my head since I was in junior but only put my thoughts into paper last 2013.
I truly love that my wattpad readers trust me enough to pm me or comment about their struggles or share their life. One of my greatest joys is being able to offer some sort of help or insight that improves the quality of relationships and life for others.
Although, my experience in the writing industry has been limited to posting my stories online to some read and write sites like Wattpad, WriteOn, Authonomy, and joining creative writing classes, my passion in writing and by putting myself out there gave me the opportunity to hone my skills for tremendous growth. I have over two million reads on one of my books on Wattpad and was a finalist to Kensington Books’ ‘The Write Affair’ writing contest.
Now, I have published three books!
Regardless if this is the first time you have read anything from me or if you have stuck with me the whole time, either way I’m so happy to have you with me. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my awesome readers, specially my Arcangels!
