Crossroads Blog Tour
Nick is about to head overseas on an adventure of a lifetime. It’s what he has always wanted, to travel the world, to experience new cultures, see the places he’s dreamed of for so long. He should be over the moon. Instead, he’s been in a slump ever since he lost his friend Em.
Nick is a player, always has been. The first time he ever wanted more from a girl he was shot down. So now he’s left licking his wounds. Emma made her choice and now Nick has to live with it.
Or does he? When he finds out that Emma is single after all, will he fight for her? Will he be able to convince her to give him a chance? And if he does, what will happen when he leaves?
Nick has reached a crossroads in his life - the girl or the dream. Seems like an easy choice when the girl of his dreams is Emma. But what if she doesn’t see things the same way?
The book cover for Crossroads was designed by Kari Ayasha at Cover to Cover Designs.
Barnes & Noble:
My heart starts to race at the sound of his voice over the loud speaker. Immediately I seek out the location of the booth and spot him as he walks out of it. He looks good. I can’t believe he’s here. I know my eyes are bugging out of my head but I can’t stop staring. Not only is Nick the DJ tonight but there he is, in my direct line of sight with his arms around a girl. And she’s very attractively smiling up at him.
“I’m sorry Em!” Kat yells in my ear. “I swear he was not the DJ listed to play, you saw the posters outside the club too.”
I swipe at my eyes as angry tears form in them. She’s right, we had both checked. There must have been a cancellation or something, it’s the only explanation. I stand still as a statue as I watch Nick put his arm around the girl’s shoulder and they head for the exit.
“Em.” Kat’s pulling on my arm. “Please look at me.”
When I can no longer see Nick, I turn to face her. The look on her face is a mixture of pity and pleading.
“Who’s for another drink?” I ask with false cheer. I don’t wait for a reply from either of the girls as I hastily make my way to the bar. I shove my way to the front, not caring about the toes I’m stepping on or the rudeness of my approach. I don’t care that I am cutting in line. I yell out my order for a shot of tequila. Before I’ve even paid, I have drunk it and ordered another. Kat spins me back to face her.
“I’m sorry Em. I swear I didn’t know.”
I turn away from her. I feel the hot tears about to overflow from my eyes as I hand over my money to the bartender and swallow my second shot. I look Kat square in the eyes.
“I want to go home.”
Crossroads is book 2 in the Finding My Way series and picks up where book 1 left off. The main character, Emma is a girl after my own heart. I completely identified with her right from the start of Finding My Way and thoroughly enjoyed watching her story unfold as she struggled with her feelings over Seth and Nick during the first installment. As I read the final chapters of book 1, I was left wanting MORE and thankfully, Megan Keith did not disappoint. Crossroads was a beautifully written continuation of Em's story and I loved the growth that both Nick and Em experienced as individuals and as two people trying to figure out their feelings for one another. You could FEEL the passion and chemistry between them, and you could feel the hurt and uncertainty when things got hard. This is an intense, emotional, and at times STEAMY read about two people trying to find their way in life and love, and should definitely not be missed. I give this series a solid 4.5 stars and highly recommend it! Happy Reading, Y'all!!
Megan Keith is a married, mother of three, living in a small country town in New South Wales, Australia. She has a constant thirst for a good story, whether it is in books, music, movies, on TV, or just plain old-fashioned gossip. She has always had a creative side and loves to let her imagination run wild. On a few occasions over the years, Megan has put those imaginings into a written story, but never dreamed of publishing. She has always loved to read, but it wasn’t until she got given a Kindle that it became a full-blown addiction. Her introduction to the world of Indie Authors re-ignited her passion for writing. Megan published her first book Finding My Way in June 2013. Crossroads is the sequel and the second book to the Finding My Way trilogy.
