BLOG TOUR: 738 Days by Stacey Kade


~ About the Book ~




Author: Stacey Kade
Publication: June 7, 2016
By: Forge Books

At fifteen, Amanda Grace was abducted on her way home from school. 738 days later, she escaped. Her 20/20 interview is what everyone remembers—Amanda describing the room where she was kept, the torn poster of TV heartthrob Chase Henry on the wall. It reminded her of home and gave her the strength to keep fighting.

Now, years later, Amanda is struggling to live normally. Her friends have gone on to college, while she battles PTSD. She’s not getting any better, and she fears that if something doesn’t change soon she never will.

Six years ago, Chase Henry defied astronomical odds, won a coveted role on a new TV show, and was elevated to super-stardom. With it, came drugs, alcohol, arrests, and crazy spending sprees. Now he's sober and a Hollywood pariah, washed up at twenty-four.

To revamp his image, Chase’s publicist comes up with a plan: surprise Amanda Grace with the chance to meet her hero, followed by a visit to the set of Chase’s new movie. The meeting is a disaster, but out of mutual desperation, Amanda and Chase strike a deal. What starts as a simple arrangement, though, rapidly becomes more complicated when they realize they need each other in more ways than one. But when the past resurfaces in a new threat, will they stand together or fall apart?

~ My Thoughts ~

I enjoyed Chase and Amanda and was easily swept up in their story! Both are recovering from a season of life that did not go the way they expected it to, and while their relationship forms over a short amount of time, it felt heart-achingly realistic. What I liked best about this book is how Stacey Kade handles the aftermath of Amanda's situation. She does it with gentleness, thoughtfulness, even infusing it with humor and romance that in no way diminishes what Amanda went through, but provides healing for both of them. 

Read it.

SALE ALERT: For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund


For the Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund is on sale! Grab your copy today for 1.99!

To celebrate the sale, Diana is sharing an excerpt with us as well as a giveaway!



Fans of Divergent will love Diana Peterfreund’s take on Jane Austen’s Persuasion set in a post-apocalyptic world.

In the dystopian future of For Darkness Shows the Stars, a genetic experiment has devastated humanity. In the aftermath, a new class system placed anti-technology Luddites in absolute power over vast estates—and any survivors living there.

Elliot North is a dutiful Luddite and a dutiful daughter who runs her father’s estate. When the boy she loved, Kai, a servant, asked her to run away with him four years ago, she refused, although it broke her heart.

Now Kai is back. And while Elliot longs for a second chance with her first love, she knows it could mean betraying everything she’s been raised to believe is right.

For Darkness Shows the Stars is a breathtaking YA romance about opening your mind to the future and your heart to the one person you know can break it.

Get your copy:


Exclusive Excerpt:
FOUR YEARS AGO

Dear Kai,
The sun is probably streaming in through the big barn windows now, which means you’re awake. And if you’re awake, it means you’re wondering where I went.
I haven’t run away from you, I promise. But I knew that today of all days, they’d need me in the house. Tatiana may be the head of our household now, but she’s not the one the staff will look to in my mother’s absence. And there is so much to do to prepare for the funeral. Also, I have to go tell my grandfather what had happened to his daughter. I don’t want him to hear of her death from anyone but me.
Thank you for last night. I wish I could say I don’t know why you are the one I ran to—you, Kai, not Tatiana or my father or even my grandfather. But I know why. And I have a confession to make.
After you let me cry, after you let me sob and shout and choke on all that pain—after you did all that, and didn’t say a word—I didn’t fall asleep like you thought. Not right away. I lay there, wadded up into a ball, and you curved your body behind mine. You were barely touching me—your thigh against the edge of my hip, your arm draped lightly across my waist, your fingers entwined with mine. How many times have our hands touched, when we were passing each other tools or helping each other in and out of machines? Hundreds of times. Thousands. But last night, it felt different. You cradled my hand in yours, palms up, our fingers curled in like a pair of fallen leaves. Fallen, maybe, but not dead. My hand never felt so alive. Every place you touched me sparked with energy. I couldn’t sleep. Not like that.
And so I bent my head, just the slightest bit, until my mouth reached our hands. I smelled the oil you never quite get off your fingers. I breathed in the scent of your skin. And then, as if that was all I was doing, just breathing, I let my bottom lip brush against your knuckle.
Time stopped. I was sure you’d see through my ruse and pull away. I was sure you’d know that I was not asleep, that I was not just breathing. But you didn’t move, so I did it again. And again. And on the third time, I let my top lip join my bottom.
I kissed your hand, Kai. I didn’t do it to thank you for letting me cry. For letting me sleep in your arms. I thought you should know.
Yours,
Elliot

Dear Elliot,
I know. When will I see you again?
Yours,
Kai

SPOTLIGHT: Riverbend Road (Haven Point #4) by RaeAnne Thayne

Riverbend Road (Haven Point #4)  
Author: RaeAnne Thayne
Publication: June 21, 2016

By: HQN Books  
Amazon | B&N | Goodreads
 

Return to Haven Point, where New York Times bestselling author RaeAnne Thayne proves there's no sweeter place to fall in love

Protecting the streets of Haven Point isn't just a job for police officer Wyn Bailey, it's a family tradition. But lately she's found herself wanting more, especially from her boss—and overprotective brother's best friend—sexy chief of police, Cade Emmett. The only problem is getting Cade to view her as more than just a little sister.

Cade's hands-off approach with Wyn isn't from lack of attraction. But his complicated past has forced him to conceal his desire. When Wyn is harmed in the line of duty, Cade realizes the depth of his feelings, but can he let his guard down long enough to embrace the love he secretly craves?



 ~ About the Author ~


I’m not one of those people who knew from birth she was destined to become a writer. I always loved to read and throughout my childhood I could usually be found with a book in my hands. To the disgust of my friends, I even enjoyed creative writing assignments that made them all groan. But I had other dreams besides writing. I wanted to be an actress or a teacher or a lawyer.
Life took a different turn for me, though, when my mother made me take a journalism elective in high school (thanks, Mom!). I knew the first day that this was where I belonged.
After I graduated from college in journalism, I took a job at the local daily newspaper and I reveled in the challenge and the diversity of it. One day I could be interviewing the latest country music star, the next day I was writing about local motorcycle gangs or interviewing an award-winning scientist.
Through it all — through the natural progression of my career from reporter to editor — I wrote stories in my head. Not just any stories, either, but romances, the kind of books I have devoured since junior high school, with tales about real people going through the trials and tribulations of life until they find deep and lasting love.
I had no idea how to put these people on paper, but knew I had to try — their stories were too compelling for me to ignore. I sold my first book in 1995 and now, more than 40 books later, I’ve come to love everything about writing, from the click of the computer keys under my fingers to the “that’s-it!” feeling I get when a story is flowing.
I write full-time now (well, as full-time as I can manage juggling my kids!) amid the raw beauty of the northern Utah mountains.
Even though I might not have dreamed of being a writer when I was younger, now I simply can’t imagine my life any other way.
I love to hear from readers.

Then there’s Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of the Order who has been sharing Ivy’s bed and claiming her heart.

NO ONE EXPECTS A PRINCESS TO BE BRUTAL.

And Lada Dragwlya likes it that way. Ever since she and her gentle younger brother, Radu, were wrenched from their homeland of Wallachia and abandoned by their father to be raised in the Ottoman courts, Lada has known that being ruthless is the key to survival. She and Radu are doomed to act as pawns in a vicious game, an unseen sword hovering over their every move. For the lineage that makes them special also makes them targets.

Lada despises the Ottomans and bides her time, planning her vengeance for the day when she can return to Wallachia and claim her birthright. Radu longs only for a place where he feels safe. And when they meet Mehmed, the defiant and lonely son of the sultan, who’s expected to rule a nation, Radu feels that he’s made a true friend—and Lada wonders if she’s finally found someone worthy of her passion.

But Mehmed is heir to the very empire that Lada has sworn to fight against—and that Radu now considers home. Together, Lada, Radu, and Mehmed form a toxic triangle that strains the bonds of love and loyalty to the breaking point.

From New York Times bestselling author Kiersten White comes the first book in a dark, sweeping new series in which heads will roll, bodies will be impaled . . . and hearts will be broken.








 ~ Author Mystery Guest Post ~

By: Kiersten White 

You’ve probably never heard of Theodora of Byzantium.

That’s a shame, because she kicks historical ass.

See, in the sixth century, there was an actress. Back then it was not a good thing to be an actress. An account of her stage performances reads so NSFW I can’t even hint at it here. But as the daughter of a bear trainer and an actress, she didn’t have many career options.

By the age of twenty-two, she retired to a home near the palace, where she became a weaver. She wove cloth. She also wove clever tales and charming company, attracting the attention of a certain passing Emperor. She quickly became his favorite person in the world. Unfortunately, he was forbidden by law to marry an actress. Their love continued (he later adopted the daughter she had during this time; most historians assume this means that either the child was his, or he loved Theodora so much he didn’t care whose child she was) until his mother died.

With Mommy dearest dead, Emperor Justinian realized that laws were made for him to break. So break them he did, and Theodora became not only the wife of the emperor, but co-regent. From a low-level actress and prostitute to co-emperor of the Byzantines.

But she wasn’t happy with just her own meteoric rise. During her reign, she worked to improve the rights of women in her empire. She also started construction on the Hagia Sophia, one of the architectural wonders of the world. Her greatest contribution to her legacy with her husband, though, was saving their throne.

Politics were as sharply divided then as they are now. Factions sorted themselves into colors—blue or green—and aligned with a sports team. (I was all set to make a “ha ha, can you believe it, sports determining politics?” comment, but let’s be honest, we have a freaking reality TV star with a legitimate shot at the presidency. Colors and sports teams don’t seem so absurd in comparison.) In the early part of Justinian and Theodora’s reign, the opposing faction threw themselves behind a rival contender for the throne, rioting and starting fires. Justinian and his counselors were set to flee the city.

Hell no, Theodora said. Better to die on the throne than flee and live as exiles. She knew what power was worth, because unlike the rest of them, she had been born with none. She had fought her entire life, dependent on the whims of men, until she finally carved out a space for herself and a relationship in which she was an equal, in which she had power. She would rather die than go back. Inspired, Justinian and his men went to the arena where their rivals were rallying and slaughtered them.

(Go, team?)

Theodora is just one of the stories I drew on when fleshing out the world of And I Darken. History has a way of ignoring women until they become too big to be overlooked. By digging out the lives of these incredible leaders, fighters, and revolutionaries, we can piece together the truth of what history likes to hide: women have always kicked butt. And they have always been vilified for it, and have had to fight tooth and nail (and knife and sword) for every scrap of power they could claim.

That fight is one I am passionate about. I wanted to explore the reality of what it would take to be a girl who demanded more in a time where she was viewed as nothing but a potential marriage alliance. So why did I choose to create a fictional girl—Lada Dracul—out of a real-life historical man—Vlad the Impaler?

That’s a great question! But unfortunately, this post is already too long, so you’ll have to read the book and then ask me in person sometime.

Losing Gabriel by Lurlene McDaniel

Author: Lurlene McDaniel
Publication: June 14, 2016 
By: Delacorte Press 
Amazon | B&N | Goodreads
 
This emotionally-charged novel about three high school seniors who in the midst of planning their futures after high school are instead faced with present circumstances that force them to grasp what it means to make choices, take responsibility, and truly become an adult.
 
Lani Kennedy has dreamed of becoming a nurse since her cousin Arie died of leukemia. Nothing will stop her from getting into the local nursing program.

Dawson Burke hasn’t dealt with his mom’s death, and he’s angry at his dad for moving them to Windemere right before senior year. He grudgingly accepts that he must wait till graduation before he leaves.

Sloan Quentin can belt out a song and knows that her band is her ticket to fame and fortune. When she discovers that her boyfriend—the band’s lead guitarist—is cheating on her, she finds comfort—and revenge—in someone else’s arms.

When the lives of Lani, Dawson, and Sloan become entangled in unexpected ways, reality hits harder than anyone could have imagined.




*Thank you Random House Children's Books for sending me a finished copy--which is gorgeous, btw--to review*

This was nothing like I expected. The summary isn't joking when it says this is an emotionally charged story. I cried more than once, starting with the dedication.

This is told in alternating POVs and follows the lives of Lani, Dawson, and Sloane from their Senior into the first few years of adulthood, so it's not a typical YA. This is not a love triangle. (highlight text to view spoiler)
Lani has a mad crush on Dawson in the beginning, but they run in different circles. He doesn't know she exists. It IS a story of about life, love, loss, heartbreak, and redemption.

While this read more like an adult novel, and felt rushed in places, I enjoyed seeing how Lurlene McDaniel wove the characters and their lives together.

For fans of Deb Caletti, Sarah Dessan, and Gayle Forman.

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


Yo,
What time is it?
Show time!
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...


http://www.hamiltonbroadway.com/


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...)
