BLOG TOUR | GUEST POST: Break Me Like A Promise by Tiffany Schmidt


Yo,
What time is it?
Show time!

Break Me Like A Promise (Once Upon a Crime Family #2)
Author: Tiffany Schmidt
Publication: June 7, 2016
By: Bloomsbury USA Children's 

No one is unbreakable.

All Magnolia Vickers has ever wanted was to follow father’s path as head of the Family Business. But new legislation is poised to destroy the Family’s operations in the black-market organ trade and Maggie’s recent behavior has wrecked the business-savvy reputation she’s worked her whole life to build.

She’s given an ultimatum: shape up or step aside.

Then Maggie messes up: she downloads a virus onto her father’s computer, and must sneak it off-estate for repair. When Alex, a tech whiz, uncovers the type of information on the machine, he offers Maggie a choice: her Family can give him a kidney, or he’ll irreparably scramble the data. Maggie agrees, but has no intention of keeping her promise or every seeing him again. That night Alex shows up at her Family estate with copies of confidential Family files and a shocking revelation—the kidney is for him.

The Vickers aren’t willing to let Alex out of their sight, so he moves onto their estate and Maggie is assigned to be his keeper. A task she resents and he enjoys making as challenging as possible. But procuring black market organs is becoming increasingly difficult, and as Alex’s health declines, she’s surprised to find herself falling for him.

Like it or not, Maggie must accept that if she wants to save Alex’s life and carve out a place in the new legalized organ business, she’s going to have to fight for both.

This might be my favorite author guest post EVER. 
Seriously. 
 If the cast of Break Me Like A Promise were starring in their own version of Hamilton, here's what the program would look like...

BREAK ME LIKE A HAMILTON
Cast of characters (by appearance)


Angelica Schuyler................................................................... Carter Landlow
(No matter how much he wishes it were; this is not his love story. He is not the hero).

Eliza Schuyler.............................................................. Magnolia Grace Vickers
(While she’s normally a Hamilton [“Non-stop!”], Maggie has been “burned” and is currently “writing herself out of the narrative.”)

Marquis de Lafayette............................................................ Penelope Landlow
(Sometimes leaders come from unexpected places. Pen is the Organ Act’s “secret weapon” and no one matches her “practical, tactical brilliance.”)

King George III.......................................................................... Holt Vickers
(Commanding and imperious, Holt is convinced that the ‘real’ Maggie will “be back, like before.”)

John Laurens............................................................................. James Byrd
(Maggie’s oldest and most loyal friend, but “every day’s a test of their camaraderie and bravery.”)

Alexander Hamilton............................................................. Alejandro Cooper
(Normally more of an A.Burr, Alex has spent his life knowing how to “Wait for it,” but when Maggie walks through the door, she changes things and he is “not throwing away his shot.”)

Hercules Mulligan................................................................. Ming ”Char” Zhu
(“A spy on the inside,” Char knows much more than he lets on.)

Aaron Burr.............................................................................. Nolan Russell
(Morally dubious, Nolan keeps everyone asking “What do you stand for?” because his only clear priorities are gaining power and a desperate desire to be “in the room where it happens.”)

Peggy Schuyler......................................................................... Garrett Ward
(A youngest sibling who disappears from the stage/page and leaves everyone wondering...)

  1. I've had both of these books for a while, but haven't gotten around to them. I may have to bump them up on the TBR.

    Love love love this post.
