Separately, they’re both free-falling. Together, they’re about to find that love can create the strongest safety net of all.

Catch My Fall Book Trailer:
Prologue: 
Teaser:

I’m not the type of girl that’s super fashionable… at least, not anymore.  That was my old life, and the inclination to spend an obscene amount of time stressing out about my appearance feels like it was surgically sliced out of me.  I don’t go crazy with makeup and I don’t spend hours primping to get ready for a trip to the mall anymore.  The only throwback to my more stylish self is my devotion to my hair.  It’s the one feature that I pay close attention to and although I hate to do it, the rain has left me with no choice but to throw my hair up into a ponytail.  My hair has become a security blanket for me and having it pulled back makes me feel like I’m naked.  When my hair is down, if someone takes notice of me or makes me feel uncomfortable, all I need to do is hide behind my hair and that’s that.  It really sucks that I’m not going to have that option today.

I’d already done very light makeup, just a touch of mascara and some light lip-gloss, so after throwing on a pair of black leggings, a silver gypsy-type tunic, and a pair of ballet flats, I was ready to go.  I grabbed my tote bag and headed off to my first class of the day, Business Math.

I had taken the time to learn my route the day before, so I got myself to my first class on time.  As is habit with me, I chose a seat at the back of the room. I hate sitting close to the front.  In my mind, that section is reserved for ass-kissers and the late-to-class.  I’m not an ass-kisser, and I’ve got enough anxiety without ever having to add being tardy to the mix.  Ergo, I’m a back row sitter.

My Review

Let me start out this review by saying that The Weight of Words is one of the most well written books I have read all year long. It was sharp, witty, and so well thought out. I adored the characters, the relationships, and all of the Shakespeare references. There really isn't anything that I didn't enjoy about this book other than the fact that it ended! 

Aubrey is a smart and confident leading lady with a compassionate heart and a caring soul. She is simply put one of those characters that you just can't help but love.  I thoroughly enjoyed her quick-wit and sarcasm, and dedication to school, work, and friends. 

Daniel is Aubrey's handsome yet brooding TA, who has an amazing way with words and can be completely and utterly charming when he isn't being a moody jerk. The sexual tension that brews between the two of them is off the charts (the library texting scene... hubba hubba), but there are also so many sweet and adorable moments that will have you grinning like an idiot. 

While the plot didn't have many twists and turns, and the curveballs that were thrown in were pretty easy to see coming, I still enjoyed the ride. I could FEEL the tension, frustration
, attraction, and love kindling between Daniel and Aubrey every step of the way, and I cannot wait to see what Guthrie has in store for these two lovable characters in the next installment!

Remy Blog Tour



Book Title: Remy
Author: Katy Evans
Date of Publication: November 26, 2013
Publisher: Gallery Books
Blog Tour Hosted by: The SUBClub Books




Synopsis

Underground fighter Remington Tate is a mystery, even to himself. His mind is dark and light, complex and enlightening. At times his actions and moods are carefully measured, and at others, they spin out of control.

Through it all, there's been one constant: wanting, needing, loving, and protecting Brooke Dumas. This is his story; from the first moment he laid eyes on her and knew, without a doubt, she would be the realest thing he's ever had to fight for.



Teaser

“Pete, you think I need a sports rehab specialist?” I ask.
“No, Rem.”
“Why not?”
“You’re an asshole, dude. You hardly let the masseuses massage you for more than twenty minutes.”
“I need one now.” Pushing my iPad over to him, I tap the screen and signal to the name below her image. “I need that one.”
Pete lifts an interested eyebrow. “You do. Do you?”
“I need a sports rehab specialist on my payroll. I want her to tend to me every day. In whatever ways they do.”
He smirks. “They don’t do blow jobs, I’ll tell you that.”
“If I wanted a blow job, I could have had three just now. What I want . . .” Once again, my finger taps over her name. “Is this sports rehab specialist.”
Pete’s eyebrows fly up to his hairline, and he leans back and crosses his arms. “What exactly do you want her for?”
I chomp down the rest of my food, then take a long gulp of water so I can speak. “I want her for me.”
“Rem . . .” he says in warning.
“Offer her a salary she can’t decline.”
Pete answers me with a puzzled silence. He seems taken aback and is trying to make sense of me. He’s looking into my eyes, and I can tell he’s observing whether they are black or blue.
I’m not black. So I wait quietly. He sighs, slowly jots down her name, and speaks cautiously. “All right, Remington, but let me say, this has Bad Idea written all over it.”
Shoving my plate aside, I lean back and cross my arms.
My head betrays me half the time. One day, it tells me I am god. The other, it tells me that I not only rule hell, but I invented it. Does Pete think I give one fuck about what his own head thinks about my idea? I don’t listen to my head anymore. I listen only to my gut.
“I want her watching me fight Saturday,” I remind him as I get up and shove my chair back under the table. And I want her watching from the bet seats in the house.”
“Remington . . .”
 “Just do it, Pete,” I say as I cross the living room back to the master.
“I already have the tickets ready to go, dude, but it’s hard enough keeping Diane from knowing of your . . . er, issues . . . It’s going to be even harder to keep it from someone like this sports rehab specialist.”
I prop my shoulder at the threshold of my bedroom and think about that. I lower my voice. “Make her sign a contract, so I have guaranteed time with her. And stabilize me the instant I start losing my shit.”
“Remington, just let me get some other girls—”
“No, Pete. No other girls.”
I shut myself in my room and grab my headphones, then just lie there with my iPod in my hand, staring at it.
What will it be like if I make her mine?
I don’t delude myself into thinking that she will accept me, but what if she does? What if she can understand me? The way I am? The two parts of me? No. Not two parts. Every. Single. Fucking. Part. Of me.
My gut tightens as I remember the way her eyes shone when she looked at me. The way they softened after I kissed her and she looked into my eyes, wanting more of me.
I have never seen a look quite like that before. I have been wanted by thousands of women. Nobody has ever looked at me with such open, frightened longing as her.
She was not frightened of me. She was frightened of “it.” This same thing clenching my gut that has me all tangled up. Every cell in my body is buzzing with awareness. Every inch of my skin is awake. My muscles feel primed like they do when I’m ready to fight. Except I’m not ready to fight now. I’m ready to go get my mate.
God help her.

About the Author

I grew up in rural Derbyshire, but my adult life has been spent mostly in London, with long intervals in Norfolk and Deal, all inspiring places. I was educated mostly in convent schools; then studied English and went on to qualify as a solicitor, working for what is now the Crown Prosecution Service, thus learning a bit about murder at second hand.  Years later, writing became the real vocation, although the law and its ramifications still haunt me and inform many of my novels.

I’m a novelist, short story writer for magazines and radio, sometime Radio 4 contributor, (Front Row, Quote Unquote, Night Waves,) and presenter of Tales from the Stave.  When I’m not working (which is as often as possible), I can be found in the nearest junk/charity shop or auction, looking for the kind of paintings which enhance my life.  Otherwise, with a bit of luck, I’m relaxing by the sea with a bottle of wine and a friend or two.

Teaser


Closing the distance, I snuggled in closer and locked my wrists around his neck. The water rippled out around us, and I was vaguely aware that it had grown cooler. We had been lost in our own world as he had shared a part of himself with me.

I kissed him passionately, wordlessly thanking him for letting me in. His lips were strong but gentle, warm with softness, and dominate in the most loving way.

Kyle was not used to sharing his feelings or any part of himself with others. Neither was I, but together, we were making progress. We were slowly getting to know one another as we shared our innermost thoughts.

“I love you,” I said against his lips.

“And I, you. You are my forever, Lily.” He met my eyes, and his gaze glowed with love and affection.

I inhaled deeply and nodded in agreement. Too many emotions were coursing through me to speak. His firm hands came around my nape to hold me close.

“Never forget that,” he breathed before sealing his lips over mine in a scorching kiss.

His kiss demanded my love, my surrender, my everything, and I gave these to him without thought. I was his, and he was mine. Inexplicable energy stormed between us, pulling us closer together. It was sensational.

There was no sight between where I ended and he began. We were intricately bound and woven together. It reminded me of crocheting. Once the two pieces of yarn were twined together, they were never the same if pulled apart.
