Southern Perfection is a Perfectly YA!

Title: Southern Perfection
Author: Casey Peeler
Release Date: Jan 13, 2015
Find on Goodreads
Life is full of choices: good, bad, and ones you can’t control. 
Raegan strives to be perfect in every way. Varsity cheerleader, honor student, and proud granddaughter of Dover Lowery. By day, Raegan is an over-achieving high school student, but at three o’clock, her real work begins. 
What happens when appearances are not what they seem? Will Raegan be able to hold on to her life as she knows it, or will she be left all alone? 
All of these questions are answered with one night, one song, one story, and one boy.
When Emmett whispers in my ear that it’s time to go, goose bumps rise on my skin.  I bite my lip and nod in agreement as we make our way outside.  Our ride to the farm is filled with laughter and a desire to constantly touch each other.  I hear Dustin Lynch begin to play through the radio, and before I know what’s going on, Emmett has pulled the truck off the side of the highway with the engine running.  I stifle a laugh as he runs to open my door and squeal as he takes my hand and pulls me to the ground and into his perfectly rock solid body. We sing to each other while moving to the beat as random cars continue down the two-lane highway past us.
On the final beat of the music, Emmett takes my cheek in his hand, my mind races as he pulls my lips to his, and he kisses me like his life depends on it.  This has to be the best kiss of my life.  If I thought I saw stars at the field party, I just got caught in an entire constellation.  When I’m brought back to reality, I know that in this moment, this boy is going to change my life.

“Don’t miss this sweet, cute Southern romance with the bonus of a grandpa-granddaughter story that’s sure to land right in your heart.” ~Trisha Leigh, author
“Casey brings her undeniable exuberance for life to her passion for coming of age stories where she weaves charming and believable stories of love, country music, and small town life.” ~EMI Recording Artist Kelleigh Bannen

A week at the beach! #rollercoaster #lukebryan

There’s something about a week at the beach. As a child and as a teen, I lived for each summer. The thought of the sand between my toes while looking out in the ocean…it still is my favorite place to vacation.

As a teen, I can still remember the thrill of going to the beach, taking a friend, and having a carefree week without your preconceived labels from home to follow. You could be whoever and do whatever you wanted for one week. In doing so, you might have dressed a little different, used vocabulary your parents might not approve of, and even picked up a boy or two, or maybe ten.

What would happen if you lived in the moment, but one choice changed your future? Each and every time I hear “Roller Coaster” by Luke Bryan, I can picture Marleigh and Gunnison from “Crashing Tides.” I can see Gunnision and how this song fits his feelings for her, but what happens when the week is over? Do the feelings end? Does life go back to normal in their own towns or will their spring break romance last forever? Their carefree spring break romance is one that many can relate to, but it’s the path their lives go on after that that impacts their future.

Check out the video

Chasing Each Other @writerjdrivera

Title: Chasing Each Other (Chasing #2)
Author: J.D. Rivera
Release Date: July 7, 2015
Find on Goodreads
 
 
 
Miranda… 

I was always the life of the party, the happy one. 

Until Preston killed my soul.

When he came into my life, he destroyed me. I was a shell of my former self, pretending to be fine while wishing I wouldn’t wake up the next day. I never dreamed my best friend would come back into my life…and bring Brad Nicholson with her.

I never dreamed the homicide detective with the cocky attitude could show me my worth again. He could show me that my life could be amazing every day. 

Until the day he found out about my past with Preston. Then, I was sure he’d see the real Miranda and ditch me for good.

Brad…

From a young age, I made a decision. 

I knew what I wanted to do with my life and from that point on, my work molded me. Everything became routine. Casual. Until Mackenzie walked into my life, bringing her best friend, Miranda, with her. 

From the first moment I saw Miranda, I knew she could be someone special. I didn’t have time for relationships, but she was different. She was a piece of the puzzle that could be missing. But she was broken, I could see that. And all I wanted to do was turn her into the girl I knew she really was beneath her perfectly placed mask.

 
 
 
 
 
The door slowly opened and my heart stuttered. Brad slowly crept into my room, locking eyes with me. What in the hell is he doing here? The urge to slap the shit out of him was strong, but I somehow refrained.
 
“Um, hi,” he whispered, sounding nervous. Too shocked and confused, I just stared at him.
 
“Can I come in?”
 
I nodded and sat up further on my bed. “What…what are you doing here?” I asked, finally finding my words.
 
He walked to the foot of the bed and sat down on the side. Handing me a bag, he said, “I hope you don’t mind your roommate letting me in. It’s your birthday and I wanted to give you your gift.”
 
“Give me a gift?” I questioned.
 
“Yeah.” He glanced at his watch. “I was afraid I’d miss it, but I still have fifteen minutes.”
 
I cocked my head to the side. Did he really think he could go out and pick up some whore and then…I couldn’t even bring myself to think it.
 
“I had to work tonight. I came over here as soon as I got off.” I’m sure he got off all right.
 
“You are such a liar.” I scoffed and shook my head. “I don’t know why you are here, but you can go.”
 
“I understand why you’re mad. And I deserve that, but I’ve never lied to you, Miranda.”
 
 
 
 
J.D. Rivera lives in Oklahoma with her husband and two boys. Her life consists of school projects, homework, cartoon shows, and little league sports. She loves Diet Mountain Dew, the OKC Thunder, costume jewelry, the beach, and reading.

Excerpt

 

I turned and exited the vehicle, almost sprinting to my door. I couldn’t get away from him and my shame fast enough. Once inside, I padded down the hall to my bedroom, a part of me breaking with each step.

I tossed my purse on the floor and threw the covers back before falling into my bed. I clutched the covers and brought them up to my chin as the silent tears fell. Preston was right—I was stupid and pathetic. Why would anyone want me?

I was an addict.

I allowed someone to abuse me for drugs.

Everything that had happened was on me.

It was my penance to pay.

And I would always be paying.

I cried myself to sleep that night and stayed there most of the next day.

I was nothing. Absolutely nothing. I asked myself why I hadn’t given up. Wondered why I hadn’t cut myself open completely and let the vile inside of me bleed out along with my life.

Excerpt From 2.3

I stand in front of her. “Take your clothes off.”

She looks surprised by this.

And normally, I’d want to undress her, but not now.

She needs this.

“Um,” she says, looking puzzled.

“I’m taking my clothes off,” I say as I strip them off and throw them into a chaise. “Get naked with me.”

Her eyes trail hungrily down my body. I love the desire I see in them, but that’s not what this is about.

If it were, I’d have her stripped and pinned under me in about two seconds flat.

I walk down the steps and into the pool, the water the perfect soothing temperature.

She takes her clothes off and joins me in the center.

“I don’t like being told what to do,” she says softly.

“I know you don’t, but sometimes you need it.” I give her a long, sweet kiss. Then I hold her shoulders, keeping her away from me. “You’re naked,” I state.

“Yeah, I am,” she flirts.

“That means right here, in this pool, it’s just us. Naked.”

“You’ve said the word naked like four times. I get it. We’re naked.”

“We are physically, but I want you naked emotionally.”

Excerpt 

“Well, here’s a fun photo,” Tyler interrupts with a smirk on his face, holding a stack of photos out for all of us to see. “Jennifer, you were a lovely drunken bride. Which one of you was the lucky groom?”

Jennifer’s face goes white.

“What?!” Jennifer screeches as she grabs the photos out of Tyler’s hand. Looking at the first one, she says, “Oh! Look at me with Elvis! Ohmigawd that photo is priceless! But I was probably just dressing up like the pirate thing. No way we got married.”

Knox holds out a manila envelope. As he dumps the contents of it, I notice little beads of sweat have formed on his forehead. Knox rarely sweats.  

Two shiny silver wedding bands clang onto the table.

“Oh fuck!” Jennifer groans. “Knox? What the fuck? Did we get married? I was joking when I said let’s get married in Vegas. Oh my god.” She flips to the next photo. “Look at me in this one. I’m in a veil. I have that silver ring on my finger and the other in my hand! I’m giving Elvis a thumbs-up! And, ohmigawd, look at this one. Knox, we’re at the altar, kissing!”

Cover Reveal —–> Chasing Carson by Amanda Bennett

Cover Reveal for Chasing Carson (U.S. Marshal Series 2) by Amanda Bennett
Release Date: January 2015
Cover By: Robin Harper/ Wicked By Design

ChasingCarson_Amazon

Synopsis:
Carson: My life was flipped upside down when my sister miraculously came back from the dead, and unfortunately I was left feeling like I was back in her shadow, yet again. But all that seemed to fade away once he came strutting through my front door. He was beautiful beyond words, and had a way of talking that would make any girl fall for him, but that was the problem. Now I found myself fighting every urge to be with him, regardless of how much my heart ached for him.
Ruger: I had never met anyone like her in my entire existence. She was snarky and sassy, and that was exactly what I loved about her. She wasn’t susceptible to my charm like most other girls, and that made the chase, that much more rewarding. I need her and want her all the same, but unfortunately for me my life and career tend to get in the way. Sometimes you have to have faith to get the one thing you’ve always wanted, but would she want me in return after knowing the real me?
