(Once) Again Blog Tour

Theresa Paolo's follow up book to (Never) Again, (Once) Again, comes out next week. Congrats to Theresa! 

Me, being the lucky person that I am, got to read this wonderful book ahead of time. And I'll warn you, once I picked it up I could not put it down. You feel for the struggle that the characters are going through, both of them having to get past horrible things that have happened to them, and you root for them to be together. I loved this book so much. It's definitely worth the read. You'll laugh, cry, and cheer for Kat and Josh.

Josh will have to reconcile his past…

In order to make Kat his future.

After surviving a real-life nightmare, Josh Wagner is sent home from his dream college on crutches. Bedridden and tormented by flashbacks, he’s just seen his world shattered and his baseball scholarship go up in smoke. Josh’s family hires a health aide to help take care of him, but when he opens the door, the last person he expects to see is his biggest regret…

Katherine Singleton is the only girl Josh has ever loved. Now, even though she’s only taking care of him because it’s her job, Josh is determined to win her back. But Kat had to move on after their breakup two years ago, and despite her feelings for Josh, a lot has happened since he left…

When Kat’s past comes back to haunt her, Josh decides it’s his turn to take care of her. But protecting her—and redeeming himself—will put Josh in the line of fire again. Will he survive this time?

How To Seduce A Band Geek Book Tour

A big THANK YOU to this page for letting me takeover for my HOW TO SEDUCE A BAND GEEK tour! :)

I've got a snippet here from the book for you all today! Enjoy :)

Maybe I should just go inside. Not to snoop (or intending to snoop. Can’t help any accidents!), but to warm my body back up to normal temperature.
No one can blame me for wanting to be warm.
Yeah, I’m going in.
I wipe my butt free of any dirt as I stand and pull open the screen door. It makes the loudest sound known to man, so I bolt in, instantly defrosting.
“Ahhhhh…” A blissful smile pulls on my lips, and I close my eyes. Maybe I can find the furnace or whatever heats trailers and stick my rear right inside. I let my gaze skate over the living room. One couch, no TV, a small bookshelf. There’s a pile of shoes in the corner, and holy cow Levi has big feet! Well, at least compared to the tiny shoes that must be Brea’s.
I’m about to check the size on those monstrosities. That’s not too crazy girl, is it?
Then I hear it.
The screen door practically breaks off the hinges as I swing myself out of the house and land in the nearest bush. A loud rip echoes in my ears, and a stab of pain shoots through my calf.
Ouch, shit, damn, mother of heaven and hell! My teeth sink into my lip as I bring my ripped pant leg up and examine the large gouge left on my skin. I force myself to breathe evenly. Blood is not my friend. My stomach goes glug-glug just by looking at the scratch on my calf and ankle. It’s really not that bad (I don’t think), but it stings and droplets of deep, warm, red…oh gag me. Deep breath, push back the nausea, Sierra.
My ears faintly register the buzzing of Levi’s moped. It’s mostly my stomach twisting and my own deep breathing as I yank my pant leg back down and press against my ankle. If I can stop the blood I can stop the puke too.
The moped grows louder, then it shuts off altogether. I open one eye to make sure he walks on past without seeing my bleeding pathetic body in his front bush or whatever the hell evil plant this is I dove into. His cute helmet hair waves in the breeze as he hops up the one step leading into the trailer. Instead of going inside, he turns and sits, letting out a huge sigh and burying his face in his palms.
Now I have to hold my breath because with the way I’m panting, he’ll hear me in a second. And he doesn’t exactly look like he wants an audience. No air is seriously causing issues in the stomach region. I’m getting so nauseous and light-headed, and something’s tickling my nostril hairs making me have the need to sneeze.
I squeeze my eyes shut and whisper, “Blueberries, blueberries, blueberries…” I say it as fast as my mouth will allow, and it does the trick, forcing the sneeze back.
Damn it. Maybe the sneeze would’ve been quieter and less embarrassing.
“Um, hey.”
He peeks over the bush where I’m settled, his eyebrow disappearing into his hair and a slight smile on his face. “What are you doing?”
That’s a good question. I clack my teeth and finger one of the sharp leaves on this death trap. “I was just, uh… looking at your bush.”

Anything. I could’ve said anything but that and it would’ve been better.

You can catch the rest in HOW TO SEDUCE A BAND GEEK! :) Deets below :)

Sierra Livingston’s got it bad for her sister’s best friend, Levi Mason—the boy who carries his drumsticks in his pocket, marches with the school’s band, and taps his feet to whatever beat runs through his head. Sierra racks her brain for ways to impress the sexy drummer, but the short skirts and bursting cleavage don’t seem to cut it.
When Sierra gets paired with Levi’s sister, Brea, for a mentorship program, they strike a deal. In exchange for Sierra keeping her mouth shut about Brea ditching the program, Brea lets Sierra dig for more info on Levi to help get the guy of her dreams.
But when Sierra discovers Levi no longer plays the drums, his family has moved into a trailer, and he’s traded in his Range Rover for a baby blue moped, Sierra’s not sure if she can go through with violating his privacy. She’ll have to find the courage to ask him straight out—if he’s willing to let her in—and explore other ways to seduce the school’s band geek.

Cassie Mae is a nerd to the core from Utah, who likes to write about other nerds who find love. She’s the author of the Amazon Bestsellers REASONS I FELL FOR THE FUNNY FAT FRIEND and HOW TO DATE A NERD, and is the debut author for the Random House FLIRT line with her New Adult novels FRIDAY NIGHT ALIBI and SWITCHED. She spends time with her angel children and perfect husband who fan her and feed her grapes while she clacks away on the keyboard. Then she wakes up from that dream world and manages to get a few words on the computer while the house explodes around her. When she’s not writing, she’s spending time with the youth in her community as a volleyball and basketball coach, or searching the house desperately for chocolate.
