Book Blitz: Unbreakable

Welcome to my post for the book blitz of Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris! Check out my review for the first book, Unravelling. I can’t wait for this to be released, and to get some more Ben!

Unbreakable (Unraveling, #2)Four months after Ben disappeared through the portal to his home universe, Janelle believes she’ll never see him again. Her world is still devastated, but life is finally starting to resume some kind of normalcy. Until Interverse Agent Taylor Barclay shows up. Somebody from an alternate universe is running a human trafficking ring, kidnapping people and selling them on different Earths—and Ben is the prime suspect. Now his family has been imprisoned and will be executed if Ben doesn’t turn himself over within five days.

And when Janelle learns that someone she cares about—someone from her own world—has become one of the missing, she knows that she has to help Barclay, regardless of the danger. Now Janelle has five days to track down the real culprit. Five days to locate the missing people before they’re lost forever. Five days to reunite with the boy who stole her heart. But as the clues begin to add up, Janelle realizes that she’s in way over her head—and that she may not have known Ben as well as she thought. Can she uncover the truth before everyone she cares about is killed?

Book Blitz: The Only Exception

Welcome to my post today to celebrate the release of The Only Exception by Magan Vernon.

Fiercely liberal Monica Remy prefers to blend in. Despite her tattoos, piercings, and outspoken personality, she transferred to Central to escape—before she finds out that her next door neighbor is the uber conservative governor son, Trey Chapman.
No matter how hard she tries to avoid Trey, he still finds a way to get under her skin. Monica can’t stand his crisp white shirts or his staunch views on women. But she can’t help counting every freckle on his face and wondering what it would feel like to have him stop talking politics and kiss her.
A class debate project forces the unlikely pair to work together, and the political lines are blurred in late-night make out sessions. But despite their fiery chemistry, Trey’s politics threatens to smother their relationship for good.

Interview with Magan

What inspired you to write The Only Exception?

For the past few years I’ve wanted to write a book with a conservative guy and liberal girl,
but just couldn’t come up with a plot, so I put it aside. During the presidential election an episode
of NEW GIRL aired in which Schmidt pretended to be the imaginary sixth son of Mitt Romney,
Thugg and some girls that used to be part of their local college Republican chapter. That got my
wheels turning and I thought about a conservative governor’s son going to college and what it
would be like for someone with the opposite views living next door to him. Trey Chapman was
born.

Is this a stand alone or will there be a sequel?

This is a planned stand alone. I have been working on a companion novel with the
character’s two best friends, but there are no current plans to continue on with the story at this
time.

If you had to cast the characters in a movie, who would play them?

Always one of my favorite questions. For Trey it would be a mixture of Max Greenfield and
Colton Haynes (if somehow science could make them have a baby. For Monica, Emma Stone
has that spunkiness yet vulnerability. For John Boy, wrestler The Miz is the first person to come
to mind. For Monica’s best friend Melanie, Emmy Rossum is the closest I’ve found. And I have
to admit that Trey’s dad, the governor, was inspired by a certain governor and former Republican
presidential candidate from MA.

Did you plot this novel out or write from the hip?

A little bit of both. I actually wrote the first half on my computer and sent to my Alpha
reader and then I wasn’t sure what I wanted to happen in the middle so I wrote the last half on
my iPad since that was what was in my head. It eventually all worked together.

What books do you have coming out next?

I’m due with my second child at the end of April, so I’m trying not to plan too much, but
I do have the sequel to my New Adult title, My Paper Heart, coming out this summer titled On
Paper Wings. It continues Libby and Blaine’s story and will focus more on her eating disorder
and his commitment issues. After that I’d really like to get out a companion novel to The Only
Exception about Melanie and John Boy.

Book Blitz: Picture Perfect by Camille Dixon + giveaway!

Welcome to my post for the Book Blitz of Picture Perfect by Camille Dixon.

This NA romance is due to be published on March 26th.

On the outside, Devin Thompson looks like he has it all – charm, good looks, and a scholarship every art major at Sanhope would kill for. But on the inside, he’s dying. His family is falling apart, his grades are dropping, and his girlfriend just dumped him for his hockey team rival, who also happens to be his younger brother. Not to mention he hasn’t been able to snap a decent picture for his senior portfolio in weeks. But when a sultry redhead with fire burning in her eyes struts across his path, he thinks he may have finally found his muse…

Angela “Angel” Davis learned early on that life never offers any hand-outs. And she’s getting burned out. Between juggling her nights as an exotic dancer at a men’s private club and struggling to keep up with her elementary education courses during the day, she barely has time to think of the future. Not that she wants to. The future implies planning, and Angel is no stranger to broken dreams. Then she meets Devin, a man who’s so wrong for her, yet she can’t seem to stay away from.

When Devin offers to take her on as his private model, Angel finds the cash hard to refuse. Each has something the other desperately needs, and neither one is willing to walk away. As their professional relationship spirals out of control into something more, they learn sometimes the wrong person can be the only right person, and that life – and people – are rarely picture perfect.

I enclose for you an excerpt from the book:

The Fox Hunt had several private viewing rooms for one-on-one’s and VIP parties, all
coordinated with a different color scheme. Blue was close by, so it didn’t take long for me to get
there. After readjusting my bustier, I applied a sultry smile and slinked past the curtain.
Soft golden lights dotted the room, the walls of which were hidden by dark blue silk
curtains. Non-scented candles burned on the two onyx tables in the room, highlighting the
sensual, relaxed atmosphere. Beneath the curtains, the walls were padded, making them all
but completely soundproof from the noise out on the main floor. Plush satin pillows dripping
in tassels lay strewn about the floor, gathering next to the centerpiece of the room – a massive
throne carved with the same embellishments as the tables.
Spying the figure lounged in the chair, my ruby lips pursed then twisted into a sly smile.
“Huh. What do you know. You did have the cash after all,” I said as I sauntered forward.
The stranger from earlier never flinched. One dark brow rose in a comical arc. “Do you
always start these things by insulting your clients?”
“Depends. Do insults and word play turn you on, or are you a more of a physical kind
of guy?” I grabbed a sash from atop the pillows, grasping both ends before hooking it around
the stranger’s neck and climbing onto his lap. Most men shivered or showed some semblance
of intimidation when I came close, but not this guy. He held himself like a man who was
comfortable around women. Something dark and hot stirred deep inside me, shooting adrenaline
into my veins.
Challenge accepted.
