Stripped

Stripped

by Brooklyn Skye

Release date: May 14th 2013

Goodreads blurb:

College freshman Quinn Montgomery will do anything to avoid the mistake her sister made—killing herself over a boy. But when she is forced into nude modeling at a local college to support her family after a bankruptcy, she begins to crack, just enough to let Torrin, the university’s top varsity oarsman, see that the real Quinn is not as feisty and unapproachable as she wants everyone to think. But letting someone in comes at a steep cost and, it turns out, Torrin is connected to Quinn’s family in more ways than she could ever imagine.

Unmasking Ella: Meet Ella

18 Mar

I’m so excited to reveal Ella Taylor, the main character and modern day Cinderella in my new novella Unmasking Ella. My co-author Krista Newport posted something on her blog about Ella earlier this month. Thankfully, Ella agreed to stop by my blog too so that we could find out a little bit more about the girl in in the mask!

Secret Cinderella

Q & A with Ella

What’s your favorite color?

Tiffany’s blue

Favorite person in the world?

I would be my BFF Fiona, for sure. She’s amazing and loyal.

If you were a super hero, what would your secret power be?

I’d have to say the ability to read minds. There are so many things I wish I could hear.

Who is your secret crush?

If I told you it wouldn’t be a secret now would it?

Unmasking Ella: Exclusive Excerpt!

18 Mar

Happy St. Patty’s Day!

I hope you’re all spending it drinking something delicious and eating Corned Beef and Cabbage! Because it’s the Month of Shamrocks, Krista and I thought we’d give you something extra special… an excerpt from our premiere novella Unmasking Ella. In case you haven’t heard yet, our debut novella is a modern retelling of one of our favorite fairy tales: Cinderella. Below is the excerpt:

“Bitch” scrawled messily across my arm was the first thing my eyes focused on. My head was pounding. My eyelids weighed a thousand pounds. I needed water right away. I struggled into a sitting position; my head was spinning and it was hard to keep upright. Wait. Bitch wasn’t the only thing written on me. My arms were covered in writing and words that were quick to bring tears to my eyes. Slut, whore, idiot, skank, were among the many.

Don’t forget to add it to Goodreads so you can be alerted when it’s released or just to read the whole synopsis!

There it is folks! The first paragraph. What do you think?

Summary from Goodreads:

“I like you.” His voice is low and soft, which I don’t deserve. I look away, down the rutted parking lot.

“Don’t…waste those words on me.”

He touches my cheek. “You just need someone to show you.” 

“No.” I ease back again. “I don’t. So please, Torrin, stop trying to swoop in and save me. I don’t need saving.”

College freshman Quinn Montgomery will do anything to avoid the mistake her sister made—killing herself over a boy. But when she is forced into nude modeling at a local college to support her family after a bankruptcy, she begins to crack, just enough to let Torrin, the university’s top varsity oarsman, see that the real Quinn is not as feisty and unapproachable as she wants everyone to think. But letting someone in comes at a steep cost and, it turns out, Torrin is connected to Quinn’s family in more ways than she could ever imagine.

Off the bookshelf: Easy by Tammara Webber

9 Jan

Easy by Tammara Webber

Easy by Tammara WebberI was at Barnes and Noble and I saw Easy sitting there. Calling my name. I hadn’t read anything from Tammara Webber before.

According to Goodreads it’s a New Adult novel. After reading the blurb about it, I decided it sounded interesting and the guy on the cover is hot AND has tattoos… So naturally I bought it.

Here is the description:

Rescued by a stranger.
Haunted by a secret
Sometimes, love isn’t easy…

He watched her, but never knew her. Until thanks to a chance encounter, he became her savior…

The attraction between them was undeniable. Yet the past he’d worked so hard to overcome, and the future she’d put so much faith in, threatened to tear them apart.

Only together could they fight the pain and guilt, face the truth—and find the unexpected power of love.

We’ll see how this goes!

Have you guys read this book?
