Ok, ok, keep your pants on! I have an announcement to make!
I’ve reached 200 comments on my blog (shoosh, I know about half of them are my replies…don’t burst my happy little bubble you big meanie!) I have to admit my reaction was rather like that cute little baby… you know what they say about small things and small minds right?
Well, since I’m all excited and happy and bouncing about with joy, I was thinking that there really isn’t a better time to give something away!
Derrolyn Anderson was lovely enough to provide me with a copy of her new book The Athena Effect AND she then also told me she’d be willing to give away a copy of the same book to one lucky reader of my blog! How cool is that?!
Now, I haven’t read this book yet (currently #27 on my TBR list), but I did read the first book of Derrolyn’s Marina Tales series, Between the Land and the Sea which was a thoroughly enjoyable 4 star read about mermaids. If you’d like to read my review on Goodreads, you can find it here.
Now, back to The Athena Effect, here’s the synopsis:
Country girl Cali has been kept a secret her entire life, raised in isolation by two very troubled people. Despite her parent’s disturbing fits, Cal is perfectly content, living at one with the nature that surrounds her, and finding adventure inside the pages of her beloved books. When an awful tragedy tears her away from her remote cabin in the woods, nothing she’s ever read has prepared her for a world that she knows very little about.
Girls and motorcycles are what bad-boy Cal’s life is all about. Brought up in a raucous party house by his biker brother, he’s free to do as he pleases, going through the motions on his final days of high school. Aimless, Cal stopped thinking about his future a long time ago.
Attacked by a gang of thugs while running an errand for his brother, Cal is in serious trouble until a fierce girl appears out of nowhere to intervene. She chases off three grown men, sparing Cal a brutal beating before disappearing into the night like a spirit. He can’t stop thinking about his mysterious rescuer, and when she turns out to be the weird new girl at school who goes out of her way to avoid him, he can’t contain his curiosity.
He’s never met anyone like her before, and the more he learns about the unusual girl who shares his nickname, the more he wants to know. Cal can’t help falling for Cal, but can he keep her from falling victim to a dangerous enemy from her parent’s tragic past?
Sounds pretty good, right? Well, it’s currently sporting 35 reviews bringing its average rating to 4.12 out of 5 on Goodreads! That sounds promising!
