GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: More by TM Franklin

EXCERPT “Okay,” Ava said. “Now what?” Caleb pulled out his phone, tapping away on it. “Wait a second,” Ava said, stilling his hand. “Is it safe to use a cell phone? Can’t it be traced?” Caleb shook his head. “Not this one.” He glanced up at her. “Do you have one?” Ava pulled her phone out of her backpack, and Caleb cursed under his breath. “It’s not on,” she said. “It doesn’t matter.” He grabbed the phone. “I could take out the battery, but they’d still know this was our last location.” Caleb thought for a moment then grabbed Ava’s hand, turning to walk quickly down the block. “Where are we going?” she asked. Caleb pointed to a Greyhound sign across the street. They walked into the small bus station, coming to a stop in front of the departures board. “Wait here,” he said after a moment, glancing around the… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and REVIEW: Through Glass by Rebecca Ethington

GIVEAWAY and REVIEW: Through Glass by Rebecca Ethington

Through Glass is my kind of book. It’s dark, it’s gritty, it’s real, and not everyone lives. This story is a new adult, post-apocalyptic, dystopian, SF, mystery, horror… LOL… it’s got a bit of all the dark stuff in it, and I loved it. First of all, it’s got one of the best blurbs I’ve ever read. This book hooked me right away with the description, it was awesome. Secondly, even though it’s written in first person and we only get the main heroine’s point of view, Rebecca really did a great job distinguishing between Alexis and Cohen. Both survive a pretty horrific end-of-the-world scenario, but we don’t find out how differently each of them coped—despite being right next door, they could not communicate except through their bedroom windows—until much later in the book. I loved that moment when Alexis realized that Cohen’s house looked nothing like hers. The setting… Read more »

RELEASE DAY GIVEAWAY:  No Angel by Helen Keeble

RELEASE DAY GIVEAWAY: No Angel by Helen Keeble

EXCERPT Our hero, Rafael Angelos, is in his first English lesson at his new school. His desk partner is Michaela Dante, a dark, smoldering beauty. Needless to say, Raffi is not exactly giving the teacher, Ms. Wormwood, his full attention… “So let’s hear from the male perspective. If you would tell us your thoughts, Raffi?” What few coherent thoughts I had at that moment were mainly about the view down Michaela’s top, but I didn’t think that was the sort of male perspective Ms. Wormwood meant. Dragging myself back into the everyday world, I tried to remember what the teacher had been wittering on about. Something about the summer reading assignment? What was the summer reading assignment? I hadn’t even read the back cover when I’d thrown it in my bag this morning. I glanced down now in search of inspiration, and discovered I’d taken out my Biology textbook. No… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and TOUR: Worth the Fight by Vi Keeland

GIVEAWAY and TOUR: Worth the Fight by Vi Keeland

REVIEW Special thanks to AToMR Tours for providing a copy of the ARC, and if you want to hop along on the tour, you can find that here. Who can resist a MMA fighter? Not many. But it’s a tough life. I actually dated a MMA fighter back in college and he told me some scary shit. Like how after a fight he had to just lock himself away to recover from all the bruises and to avoid freaking people out because his whole face was purple. Mixed martial arts fighting, or cage fighting, as it’s more popularly known, is some serious, serious stuff. And Worth the Fight touches on some of the more horrifying aspects of the sport, while at the same time humanizes these men who can sometimes seem a bit brutal. Nico Hunter is a talented MMA fighter but the opponent in his last fight haunts him…… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Forever Innocent by Deanna Roy

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: Forever Innocent by Deanna Roy

EXCERPT Gavin took my hand and led us across the rooftop to the far corner, away from the other students working on their astronomy labs. “Lie here with me,” he said and set his backpack down. He squeezed my fingers as he let go, and I wished we had walked some great distance, just to feel his hand on mine a little longer. I laid my pack next to his and we stretched out on the bumpy surface of the roof, staring up at the stars. “So how long have we both lived in the same city and not known it?” he asked. “I got here a year ago.” “A whole year.” He turned his face to mine. “Seems like the world wants us to at least be friends again.” I didn’t know which words to get stuck on. Friends. Or at least. “Seems like it.” “You think we’re the… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and RELEASE DAY BLITZ: The Road to You by Marilyn Brant

GIVEAWAY and RELEASE DAY BLITZ: The Road to You by Marilyn Brant

EXCERPT I could count on one hand the things I knew were true about Donovan McCafferty: He was twenty-three—just over five years older than I was. He’d escaped into the Army at age eighteen and, except for a few quick but memorable visits, hadn’t returned to Minnesota until this past winter. He had an excellent mechanical mind. And he made me very nervous. Underneath my skin, every nerve fiber was fast twitching. Just thinking about Donovan always did that to me… It was 7:05 p.m. by the time I got to the auto-body shop where he worked. They closed at seven, but the light in the back was on and I knew he was in there. Not because I’d caught even one glimpse of Mr. Tall, Dark and Intense yet, but because the only other car in the lot was a crimson Trans Am with the giant Firebird decal in… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and REVIEW: Azure by Chrystalla Thoma

GIVEAWAY and REVIEW: Azure by Chrystalla Thoma

What a nice surprise this book was. I’ve never read any of Chrystalla’s books before this one, and for that I’m sorry. She’s a wonderful storyteller. First of all, the year of contemporary new adult might be over. I for one am just a little bit sick of contemporary romances, but yet – I still do enjoy them a lot if they are very original. Azure is something in between a contemporary and paranormal. It’s quite subtle, and for that I seriously have to give Chrystalla props. It’s something of a mermaid story – but yet… that’s not even close to what it is. First of all, the main heroine, Olivia, is not in any way paranormal. And the hero, Kai, might not be either. So where’s the paranormal aspect, you ask? Well, I’m not going to tell you. It’s a spoiler that I’m not willing to give up, because… Read more »
