"Ben Lancaster had just tattooed himself onto my soul and the thing about tattoos? They’re painful to remove."--Georgia King.
Georgia King is trying to survive after spiraling into a darkness that nearly took her life. In therapy and with her college dreams on hold,she's trying to get healthy. Trying to still the craziness inside her. She has no room for someone like Ben Lancaster,and if he was smart he'd stay away. Because everyone knows Georgia is bad news. Everyone knows she ruins people. And if Ben isn't careful, he'll be next in line.
Ben Lancaster is a young, hot shot hockey player on his way to the top. Newly signed to the Philadelphia Flyers, he's living the dream. The girls. The money. The fame. He thought he had everything he wanted until he met her. Suddenly he wants more--he wants her. He'll do whatever it takes to get her and Ben Lancaster always gets what he wants.
But the girl who's different from anyone he's ever known is hiding secrets. And as the dog days of summer pass, only time will tell if Georgia's secrets can be healed. Or if her bruised soul is strong enough to resist Ben Lancaster...

       Ben stared at me from across the yard.  He was shirtless, hands shoved into the front of his jeans and rain soaked hair a mad mess that clung to his face and neck.  He was far enough away that I couldn't see his features clearly, but I felt him.
       I felt him as if he was pressed against me. As if he was inside me.
       Time did that funny stop-watch thing. It slowed down and froze.
       The grass stopped growing.  The ants stopped moving. I think my heart even stopped beating.
       But the rain still fell.  It slid over my hot skin like a frantic caress and I groaned, so incredibly confused and turned on. I was chasing that shooting star that held him so far above me and right now, in this moment, I would do anything to catch it. 
       I held my breath because something was about to change.
       Ben ran a hand through his hair, pushed it off his face.
       A heartbeat passed—then he stepped off the deck.
       And everything changed.

Julie Bale fell in love with book boyfriends when she was twelve.  She decided that when she was a grownup she would write her own book boyfriends. So that’s what she does.  When Julie isn’t writing she’s busy looking after a family that includes a couple of kids, her husband and a dog who is prettier than some people she knows, and a cat who thinks he’s human. She loves The Walking Dead, Pretty Little Liars, The Foo Fighters, Vampire Diaries, The Fray, and The Gilmore Girls. And when she has time, she loves to kick back and read yummy romances with hot guys and girls who are cool enough to hang out with.

  2. I like YA novels so I think I would like NA novels too. :)

  3. Congrats to Julie on the new release. I haven't tried NA yet, but have seen how popular these books are.

  4. I LOVE New Adult books!!! Have been picking them up like crazy these days:) I like that they fit in with the way things are in my life right now, so I can totally relate to some characters and situations. Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. I've really been enjoying the "new adult" genre. I've read a few books and they have been engaging and sexy :)

  6. I probably have read a number of New Adult books without realizing it. The lines blur at times.

  7. The genre is new to me but I am always up to new genres and new authors. I look for a good story line and characters. I really want to read this book. Tore923@aol.com

  8. I have liked the few authors I have read so far in this genre and as long as it opens up the entire realm of "book lovers " in the romance category- either with a erotic, young adult, erotic or paranormal twist- I am all for that kind of expansion. sdylion(at)gmail(dot)com

  9. I really enjoy New Adult genre...really enjoy all the angst in coming of age stories, also the stories are about my age group, and the stories are hotter than YA.
    I really wanna read this book...gonna be hot! Read the sample on Amazon wanted to buy but I'm on book buying ban...boo! Thanks for the chance.

  10. I have not read any New Adult books yet, but I hope to soon!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  11. I don't know about new adult category. Haven't heard of it, young adult, yes. But I've read alot of adult contemporary novels. Maybe The Perfect Game falls into what you are looking for. I loved that book & cannot wait for the second book.

  12. I have not read any new adult books. I love finding new books and genres to read.
