Release Blitz: Excerpt & GIVEAWAY for ebooks and $75 Amazon Gift Card for Angie McKeon’s “Against All Odds”I have to quickly tell you that I LOVED this book! My full review will come later in the month for the tour, but don’t miss out on this book – Angie made me feel so much emotion with her story – the first half had me aching something terrible for the characters and what they were going through and more importantly how they were handling their tragedy. BUT, by the end of the story, it comes full circle and Angie was able to help repair my ache and heartbreak. A journey not to be missed!
Title: Against All Odds (Stand-alone)
Author: Angie McKeon
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
I step back and release a shaky breath. “I don’t know what to say. You know that we…” I flick my eyes to the other side of the room to collect my scattered thoughts.Erasing the distance I just tried to put between us, he lifts my face to his. Our eyes connect, and my pulse—already wild—intensifies.He looks straight through to the heart of me. “You don’t have to say anything right now. You don’t have to say anything ever. Just think about what I’m saying.” Gaze locked on mine, he places a tender kiss on my lips.When he pulls back, he clears his throat and pulls out his phone. “All right, get packed. I’ll call the pilot and let him know we’re ready to leave.”I nod numbly as he walks out of the room. I want to go home to my empty house. My empty bed. My empty life. I need some time away from everyone. I need to figure out what’s wrong with me. What happened to the girl with morals?I close my eyes as all energy drains from my body. I slip to the ground, hugging my knees. I miss my life before Kayla died. Before all I felt was pain and hopelessness. Before all I saw was a nightmare. Before I shut down and started doing stupid things.I need to find the girl I used to be, but I’m not sure she’s in there anymore. I’m not sure she’s strong enough to come back. Because coming back means feeling the loss of her baby and confronting the problems in her marriage. It means facing pain, fear, and guilt. That is so terrifying that living in a state of numbness and denial might just be easier. All rights reserved. Against All Odds © 2014 Copyright, Angie McKeon.
