Title: Distraction
Author: Angela McPherson
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Untold Press
Blurb:
Aside from the normal changes in her life, college junior Elle Richards can always count on her friendship with Tristan. The longing for him to love her back is something she keeps well hidden, even from herself. No matter how many miles apart they are, regular phone calls and texts keep them close…until the day everything changes.
Wide Receiver Tristan Daniels has a good thing going. Much to his, and every single woman’s surprise, he’s in a committed relationship. The possibility of going pro looks more than promising…until his spur of the moment transfer to a rival college is approved. Now, Tristan will be forced to be in the presence of the woman he’s secretly loved for as long as he can remember. Elle.
Being away from one another was enough to keep Tristan and Elle distracted, but angst, confusion, and troubled secrets launch them into a breathless, heart pumping story you won’t want to miss!
Recommended for mature audiences 18+ New Adult/College Contemporary Romance
Born and currently residing in Texas, Angela works as a nurse during the day and an author by night. She’s addicted to cleaning, coffee, and fuzzy socks. When not spending time with her husband and their three children, working or writing, she’s reading a good book or listening to music.

Frantically, I searched her face until I reached her wounded eyes, and my insides knotted with uncertainty. I claimed her lips with mine, fitting perfectly together. Her mouth opened, and the salty taste of her tears forced reality into the room. As much as I wanted the kiss to linger, I had to make her understand how much I wanted her, and only her. Reluctantly, I backed away.
“I’ve loved you since we were kids. I wanted it to be me instead of that dick, Mark James, on your first date. I’ve wanted you so fucking bad, but I never told you how I felt because the thought of losing you, even as a friend, terrified me.”
Her green, shock-filled eyes pooled with tears again. I did the only thing I thought would make her believe me. My hand wrapped around the back of her head, fingers weaving through her hair. I inched her closer until I felt her soft lips against mine.
The kiss started in a slow exploration. The moment my tongue met hers, her breath caught and her body shivered. My heart raced like a jackhammer when her fingers spread through my wet hair and the kiss deepened.
Damn she felt good, and tasted even better. Her lips were soft, but eager for more. Her hair felt like smooth silk beneath my hand. I wrapped my other arm around her waist and pulled her tighter against me, only it wasn’t enough. I wanted more.

Okay, I’ve been in my cave editing and writing, and looks like I’ll be there until the end of June. But that’s good news, guys!

Fellow author Lynn Vroman and I collaborated and came up with a great story we hope to share with you all soon. There’s more, Gypsy Love is part of something bigger, but those details are still under construction. Should have more to share soon! However, I’ll leave you with a teaser. Enjoy ❤

Now on to my 5 Alien Star review of Adrenaline by Sunniva Dee!

Holy shit this book is amazing! Sunniva totally outdid herself with Adrenaline! This story is golden! I mean you feel so much: Passion, Raw Emotion, Humor, Sadness, and Love. Man, love and heartache drips from every page! Cam is playful and totally reminds me of a big teddy bear. He’s not extreme sports, like jumps without thinking. He scared the crap out of my a few times. Ingela is so freaking funny! She’s from Sweden and her English slang is so off at times you can’t help but laugh your ass off. Together these two steam up the page. Their chemistry is off the charts, but so is Ingela and Bo…. Enter another hottie! There isn’t really a love-triangle here, but, um, yeah. I can’t give anymore details or it’ll give the entire book away. Sorry, charlie 😉 You experience so many highs and lows, but it’s worth every bit of your time.

So I always relate my stories with songs, and two came to mind while reading Adrenaline: Florida Georgia Line’s Sipping On Fire (Cam’s song) and Taylor Swift’s Style (Bo’s song)! I’ve added each video below ❤

CAMERON

Life’s the shit!
Chicks squeal over how wild and yummy I am, play their silly games trying to tie me down. But I’m free as a bird, doing what makes life life: kicking extreme-sport-ass!

I base jump, snowboard, bungee jump. I do anything for the rush.

Then, Ingela blows into town for college—a cool Swedish blast of trouble. Foulmouthed and runway-gorgeous, the girl seeps in like poison and melts the freaking brain.

To Ingela I am what chicks were to me: pastime, leisure, entertainment, pleasure. She’s killing me, and I’m digging it. There’s a new rush in town! Yeah, I hunt down my highs, and now the chase is on. I’ll catch her soon enough, just, what’s the deal with her ex?

Florida Georgia Line’s Sippin’ On Fire

Firm breasts Adrenaline teaser

BO

With Ingela, sex is a dance. A slow tango where skin flows over skin. It is slick readiness, a quiet welcome. It’s smooth, warm, right, and all wrong.

On and off. On and off. Again, she’s wrecked with grief. It’s a reminder of how I destroy her, how crushed relationships shouldn’t be revived.

We’ve done this for years, now, but clearly we’re in for more.

Taylor Swift’s Style

Chops to love Adrenaline teaser

Austin Book Fest Fun!

This post is late, so sorry! Austin was an absolute blast, and I can’t wait to head back next year 😀

The ABF/Vixen weekend started at Creme Bakery & Cafe in Austin, TX. A Fun night with great food, drinks, friends, and a BOOK EXCHANGE! Vixen love was everywhere! I was so amazed by how far and wide some of those ladies traveled to be there! On to the exchange… Gone With the Wind is a classic and my fav, and someone wrapped that baby up for the exchange. Say what?! Had to take a picture with the all-time classic masterpiece, even though I wasn’t the winner.

IMG_0176

Not complaining at all! I was gifted with Lead Me Not by A. Meredith Walters! Cannot wait to jump into that lovely book!IMG_4566

 

However, (sadly) I wasn’t the lucky person who left with Gone With the Wind. BUT! (sliver linings) Cristal with Three Little Birds Book Blog did (lucky)!

IMG_0177

Here’s what Cezanne with BCS Reviews and Yamara with Panty Dropping Books Blog nabbed at the exchange!

(The Bet by Rachel Van Dyken)

(The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski)

The next day was THE day! (OMG) Let me start by saying I’d NEVER been to a signing (other than my own, last month in Austin). I was so star struck. Before we left for the airport to pick up Cristal and C, I walked past Jennifer Freaking Armentrout. Holy crap! A little known fact about me: So when I get nervous, I laugh (a lot) and I either can’t form a complete sentence or I ramble with the inability of shutting up. When Yamara said, “Hey. There’s Jennifer, go say hi.” I totally laughed, turned and walked away. *sigh* No lie! I learned later that evening that Cristal was Jennifer’s assistant during the signing. More on how that went later.

My first stop at the signing was with Katie Ashley!

IMG_0182 and later in day I won an ARC of IMG_0190Holy crap, that was awesome.

Sadly, I didn’t grab a picture with Molly McAdams, but I did get Talking Chances signed by her and Chase Grayson. Before I move on, I’ve got a question about Chase. So I thought he was on a cover of her book and I (like a creeper) kept looking at him and wondered which book? Is he on the Trusting Liam cover? Regardless, I was super excited to see Molly again. Wait, back up (I’m so all over the place and hope I don’t confuse anyone). Friday night Molly was at the hotel and she totally remembered meeting Yamara and me for dinner the month before! She even asked about the signing. I can’t express how super sweet she is. Thanks to Molly for being so nice even if I seemed like a complete spaz 😉

IMG_4565

 

On to the next excitement! While getting a few signatures for friends, I won an ARC of Come to Me Recklessly by A.L. Jackson, who was so down to earth and nice, as well! More books to read and authors to love!

IMG_0184IMG_4567

 

 

During this time, I was gathering enough nerve to meet my “THE AUTHOR” of the event… Jennifer Armentrout. I hadn’t worked up enough balls yet, so I detoured to say hi with Cezanne, who helped out Katy McGarry. And OMG! I LOVE her books. I nearly went blank and laughed, but took in a deep chunk of air and was actually able to talk… without rambling. Win, win! Katy chatted about a new book set to come out and her characters from Crash Into You and Take Me On. WOW! Pushing The Limits started my love for Katy’s books and every story after is just amazing as the first! 😀

IMG_0183

So, I’d worked through my star struck-ness (is that a word?) and I jumped into JLA’s line. *I’m gonna do this* But before I got up to her table, I start talking to another author, Rachel Hollis. She asked where in Texas I was from, which lead to her book! Rachel’s MC from Party Girl lives in Odessa, TX (which is next door to Midland)! She mentioned a few characters who were from Midland, too! Super cool so I had to buy her book, right?! Totally meant to be 😀

IMG_0185

After meeting Rachel, Jennifer Armentrout’s line started to really move! I met a few readers and talked books while we waited. Then the time to meet Jennifer arrived. I smiled and was trying really hard not to blubber, when Jennifer said, “I’m sorry, I can’t sign these for you.” WTH?! I then started stumbling over my words while trying to form a sentence. My face was SO red and then she laughed, along with Cristal. Jennifer (freaking) Armentrout said, “She told me to give you a hard time.” We all laughed and I proceeded to tell her that I was like RIGHT beside her yesterday and she was like, “Oh,yeah. I think I remember that.” Die! I told her she was my favorite author, but the rest was a blur. Cristal captured the moment with a pic! OMG! How awesome 😀

IMG_0187

The last signature I needed was Colleen Hoover’s, and the line was out the door. Me along with a new groups of awesome ladies I met worried we wouldn’t get our books signed. However, Colleen and Tarryn walked the line and signed everyone’s book! I could imagine how exhausted they were. All the authors stayed way past the designated end time. My shoulder was killing me from hauling all those books around, but it was totally worth it!

On to the Author Meet and Greet! My first excitement was with Colleen Hoover! OMG! So flipping exciting 😀

IMG_0197

I didn’t think the night would get much better, but it did! While waiting in line for a drink, I met the author of Brightside, Kim Holden! Brightside had recently been added to my TBR list so I was (again) excited to meet the author in person. The moment of excitement hit the roof when I, ME, was noticed as an author! Convo: You look so familiar.

Me: Um, IDK, I’m on FB. (I always feel weird saying I’m an author. Like, I’m not even CLOSE to as awesome as the authors at ABF). So, I swallow and said, “Well, I’m an author.”

“OMG! Yes! Someone recommended YOUR book to me!”

ME: *jumps up and down, squealing like a maniac* “OMG, are you serious?! That is so exciting! Can we take a picture together? *I had to capture that moment forever*

“YES! “

This picture became my ALL-TIME favorite of the weekend. I will NEVER forget that awesome and wonderful feeling when meeting readers. Thank you for everything ❤

IMG_0196

So, Charlene Zapata, friend and author of Sublime Wreckage and Sublime Resistance was at this event, too! How cool. I ran over and to tell her what had just happened. She laughed and was like, “Hey. This is Tammara Webber.” Guys, Charlene is all nonchalant when she introduced us. WOW! I LOVED her book Easy!

IMG_0199

To celebrate how great the day/night was, Charlene, Amberly, Yamara, and I headed to 6th street.

IMG_0204

Do y’all know who the actor, Adrien Brody is? Well, I got to meet him:D Just kidding, but Michael looked so much like him. He’s even an avid reader 😉 We chatted books, of course 😉

IMG_0200

The weekend was a hit! Texas Tech was at the hotel recruiting students, so I HAD to snap a picture under the Go Tech balloons. Tristan and Elle would’ve been proud! IMG_0207

Before heading out for good, Distraction was left for someone to find.

IMG_0205

Heather Huff, congrats and hope you enjoy the read. The weekend was filled with such great energy, and I’m so glad to have made new pals during my stay. Have a great week, everyone ❤
