Blog Tour: Perfect You by Ashelyn Drake

I put the phone down and eat my cereal. Just as I take the last bite, my phone beeps with a message. I grab it, thinking Ash is taking a bathroom break. Got plans for today? It’s not Ash. I don’t recognize the number at all. I text back. Who is this? Guess. Noah? No, he doesn’t have my number. My fingers hover over the keys, not knowing how to respond. Noah: It’s Noah. Why is Noah texting me? Sure we’ve been hanging out, but only at the courts. We’ve never called each other or anything. Meg: How did you get my number?  Noah: I have my ways. How’s your head? I haven’t even thought about it. My late night swim with Ash sort of cured all my ailments. Meg: Better. Noah: Good. Let’s go to the water park. Is he asking me out? He knows I’m with Ash. I can explain being at the tennis courts with Noah since he’s the best player on the guys’ team, but going to a water park? Noah: What, do you have plans already? Yes, I do. Gray and I have to practice, and I promised Ash I would go watch the Football Challenge tonight. Meg: Kind of. Kind of? Why did I text that? What the hell is Noah doing to me? It’s like my brain shuts off when I talk to […]

Blog Tour Excerpt: Finding Mr. Darcy by Erin Butler

Chapter 1 Now The phone rang again and I immediately thought of Janie. My heart popped up through my throat and caught on a breath. She was here though, right next to me. Safe. Her face still red and covered in dried, crusty tears. I fumbled for the cordless. “Liza, it’s me. I’m … ” he hesitated, probably waiting to hear if I would say Who? or maybe, Which one? “I’m outside your house. Meet me downstairs?” “Right now?” I shouted more than I’d meant to. My head pulsed in alarm, and a soft groan escaped Janie’s lips. I took a deep breath. “It’s like, eleven,” I whispered, more calm now. “Yeah, I’m out in my car. I … I need to see you.” Janie murmured and shifted as I got out of bed. I’d have to fight her for a spot when I got back. Or I could just suck it up, grab a quilt out of the closet, and sleep on the floor. Outside, the air chilled right through my flimsy pajamas and pricked my bare skin. I tucked Dad’s oversized U of M sweatshirt I found on the back of the couch around my shivering body. My breath made these little pockets of fog in the air as I tiptoed across the frost-covered lawn to the street. The houses that mirrored mine on all sides stood quiet. […]

Release Day Launch Review: Business as Usual by Denise Grover Swank

Check out my review of After Math (Off the subject #1) Check out my review of Redesigned (Off the Subject #2) “‘What else?’ ‘It’s all business with you, isn’t it, curly?’ I take a sip to prove I’m following the rules. ‘I am a business major.’ ‘Well, business as usual then.’ She laughs.”  “‘You wear me out, Ben Masterson.’ He leans over me, propped on his elbow. ‘Consider me your personal trainer.’” I just had to sign up for the release day launch after reading the other two companion novels in this series. I’ve been waiting for Lexi’s story for a while! “‘You didn’t do anything wrong.’ I try to laugh, but it hurts my head. ‘I was stupid. Something very, very bad could have happened to me.’ And when I let myself think about what could have happened, I feel nauseated. ‘Thank you,’ I say and it seems too inadequate. Ben saved me from being raped, I’m positive of it. I’m not sure I could emotionally survive something like that again. I know Reed couldn’t.” Business as Usual follows Lexi Pendergraft as she deals with the psychological aftermath of her rape. It begins with Lexi breaking up with her boyfriend because she freaks out during sex. After then, Lexi decides that she is going to shun relationships for a while. But at a bar one night after a play […]
