my next book

Let's play: Guess That Title! (A Giveaway)

This Saturday, I’m announcing some info on the next book. I’m so excited and so tempted to just tell you everything right this minute.

But patience is a good thing to have, right?


Therefore, we’re waiting. In the meantime, what I will do is give you the first letter of each word in the title. What I want you to do is come up with a title with those letters in the order I present them. You could try to guess the title based on what you know so far, or you can think of something funny with it, whatever. Just create a title(s) with it.

To make it even more fun, I’ll throw in an e-ARC of the book to one person who comments. I’ll announce the winner when I reveal the title and all that jazz.

Here are the letters: B t B L

Good luck! Be sure to read the fine print below for the rules/guidelines/etc!

-You must be 13 years of age or older to enter.
-You must use the letters in a title in the order they are given.
-You must comment on this post for your entry to be eligible. You can list as many titles as you wish, but they must be in one comment, which serves as each person’s only entry.

-I have the right to end this giveaway at any time without any notice. I have the complete discretion to operate this giveaway as I deem fit.

YOU BEFORE ME Description!

I think it's time for y'all to know this, don't you? In case you've been out of the loop, You Before Me is my New Adult Romance standalone releasing in June featuring Gabe and Ryan. View the book's page, add to your to-read shelf on Goodreads, and follow the board on Pinterest for weekly pins leading up to release!

Without further ado, here is the official book description for You Before Me.

She’s too young for him. 
He’s too good for her. 
She seduces him away from the gentlemen he tries to be. 
He leads her to her own hopes and dreams.

Ryan Kavanaugh isn’t the kind of girl guys bring home to their moms. She’ll have sex on the first date, she’ll drop the f-bomb without a second thought, and she’ll answer the door in jeans and a bra.

Gabe O’Connor is exactly the kind of guy girls want. He’s a police officer and the classic good guy who takes his family’s opinions seriously and strives to be the best person he can be.

Two people in two different places in their lives, both being pulled in directions they don’t want to go. Ryan and Gabe both struggle with what they desire in life and in each other as well as what their families expect of them.

Sometimes, you have to think of yourself first.

EEK! I hope that gets you even more excited about this story because I'm beyond thrilled about it.

This Is a Pinterest Board You Will Want to Follow

I’m here to share that I have a new board on Pinterest! Why does this matter? Because it’s a board for You Before Me. I was going to post last week, but due to my hands, I stayed off the computer as ordered. I still have a few days off, but a few minutes to post this won’t hurt anything.

Anyway, back to the You Before Me Pinterest board. Every week, I’m going to share a pin or two that relates to the book. This will give you a sneak peek of sorts, so you better make sure that you follow it! There are a couple of pins on the board right now that links back to some posts regarding YBM, and I’ve already added this week’s pin.

Go check it out!

Also, make sure you subscribe to my monthly newsletter. When I send it out on the 1st of next month, they will read the description before anyone else!

My Next Release & Teaser Tuesday!

Today is a BIG day and I’m glad you’re here with me. I have some angry butterflies in my stomach right now, and I’m only announcing a few details! I’m so very excited though. You’re probably thinking, “Excited about what?!”

My next book, of course!

I’m about to announce the title and the release date!

But first! I must tell you something.

Do you remember that poll where I wanted you to pick a number and I promised that “you’ll learn why later!” Well, later is now. I picked those numbers as possible release dates for this book. All I knew was the month I wanted it to release and about which week. I put a date range in and then got those four numbers. So I figured I should let y’all in on the action and have YOU choose the actual date.

And y’all chose 21.

Now, let’s get back to this title business. This is for Ryan and Gabe’s book, a New Adult Romance stand-alone. You can learn more about them here in case you missed my birthday post.

On June 21, 2014, you will meet Ryan and Gabe in You Before Me. I’m crazy excited about this book and I hope you are too. Go ahead and add it to your TBR on Goodreads. I'll share the description with y'all soon.

However, if you are a subscriber of my monthly newsletter, then you’ll be able to read that on April 1st when I send out the next issue. If you haven’t signed up yet, learn more and subscribe here.

Before I go, I'll share two small teasers, one from each POV.

Ryan's POV:
He gives me the vibe of a pure, 100 percent good guy. Maybe it's that stupid girl in me, but it makes me a little wary. There has to be a kink in his shiny exterior. It's so the stupid girl talking, trying to rationalize it because guys can't simply be good.

Gabe's POV:
As our night dies down and we head to back to her place, Ryan becomes a dangerously enticing woman, slowly luring me in. There are the simple touches like her hand high on my thigh as I drive with those fingers of hers trailing a carefree pattern. There's her laugh, which is ridiculously sexy. It's almost as if she knows just the exact laugh that will turn a guy on. And then the tempting, dirty words she seemingly casually throws out about what could come.
By the time we make it up the stairs and stand outside Ryan's apartment door, I've been captured. My mind and body are capable of thinking of only one thing. She's lets go of my hand to unlock her door, but she doesn't push it open. Instead, she turns, leans against her door, and tugs me towards her with a sexy, sly smile. My chest is flush against hers, my hands clutching her hips. A fog officially clouds my mind as my senses zone in on her lips and this killer body. I don't even get the opportunity to be the one to lean into her first because Ryan does it.

That’s all for today, folks! Stay tuned for their Pinterest board to be unveiled later this month.
