Veer Release!

Veer is now available!

Only when you let go can you learn to live.

Between the death of her mother and pushing through law school without her best friend, it's been a tough year for Becca. Needing a break from Boston, she moves to a tiny coastal North Carolina town for a relaxing summer. After bumping heads repeatedly with a local cop, she realizes her summer will be anything but quiet.

Three years after a career ending injury ruins his chance to play Major League Baseball, Gavin has a distrust of northerners and lately girls in general. He wants nothing to do with a girl who is only in town for the summer.

When the two give in to their impossible attraction, they realize that they may just have found the key to freeing themselves from the ghosts of their pasts.

Note: Veer is a New Adult Contemporary Romance. It contains sexual situations and mild language.

Cover Reveal: Exhale By Jennifer Snyder

Today I have the pleasure of participating in the cover reveal for Jennifer Snyder's upcoming YA Contemporary novel, Exhale! This cover was designed by Once Upon a Time Covers.
Be sure to enter to win an e-ARC below!

Inhaling in life is easy. It’s the exhaling—the letting go— that’s the hard part.

Katie Elliot has always known the Conner twins. For years she secretly pined after one, while playfully averting the advances of the other. Once upon a time, she was fine with that. Then came the moment when her twin of preference kissed her and changed everything.

As if realizing love can be complex—even when it’s reciprocated—isn’t hard enough, tragedy strikes, tearing Katie and the boy she’s always desired apart. Finding herself torn between love and guilt, Katie must learn when it’s acceptable to let go—when it’s finally okay to exhale.
  Release Date: December, 10, 2012
Isn't it a gorgeous cover? I was lucky enough to get to read Exhale early, and it's fantastic!

Veer Teaser and a Giveaway!

Veer releases in two weeks, so I thought it was time for a teaser! I'm so excited to share Gavin and Becca's story with everyone! Still haven't read Derailed yet? It's on sale for .99 cents in anticipation of the Veer release! I'm also doing a giveaway for print copies of  Derailed and Veer. Enter via the rafflecopter below (Open internationally)!

As I sat there freaking out about the possibilities, I heard a knock on my window. My heart just about jumped out of my chest. Hesitantly, I looked up and saw a tall hulk of a man right outside the car. He gestured with his hands for me to open the door. I shook my head no. This guy was huge. There was no way I was opening the door.
He nodded, held up a finger as if telling me to wait, and disappeared. I waited, wondering what he was up to and whether I could find any sort of weapon. I settled for closing my fist around the small container of mace I kept in my bag.
I heard another rap on the window and glanced over. The man held a badge up for me to read. He was a cop. Of course anyone could fake a police badge, but that seemed extreme even for my imagination. I decided to take a chance and open the door.
Before I could even open it all the way, the guy ducked his head down to talk to me. “Having car trouble?”
I tried to appear more confident than I really felt. “Yeah, it looks that way.”
“I can take a look at it for you, but honestly I’m not great with cars. I’m guessing by the Massachusetts plates that you’re not from around here.”
“No, I’m not.” Cop or not, I wasn’t going to give him more information than I had to.
“Where are you headed?” He squatted down, making eye contact. He was good at this—yeah he was really a cop.
“Umm, Clayton Falls?” I looked down at the Google directions I’d printed out in case my GPS failed. Molly hadn’t talked much about her town, so the name still sounded foreign on my tongue.
“Clayton Falls, huh?”
“You wouldn’t happen to be Molly’s friend, would you?” A faint smile played on his lips. It gave him an almost boyish look that was at odds with his size.
How’d he know? “Yes…”
“I’m a friend of hers.” He held out his hand. “Gavin Powell.”
“You’re Gavin? The Gavin?” Molly had told me about her near fling with the hot cop in her hometown, but I thought she’d exaggerated his good looks and size.
He smiled. “So you’ve heard about me? As far as I know, I’m the only Gavin.”
I remembered my situation. Not the time to flirt. “Is there any way you can help me get through to her? My phone isn’t working.”
“Yeah, service is iffy out this way. Why don’t I give you a lift? I’ll take care of getting your car towed.” He leaned in closer, his body heat making an already warm evening hotter. His brown hair was messy, and I had a feeling he never really bothered to fix it. His friendly hazel eyes begged me to trust him, but I couldn’t.
