Football Friday: Meet Levi and Silas PLUS a Giveaway!

MEEEEP! We're SOO close to the release of All Lined Up on May 13th! If you haven't heard about ALL LINED UP, you can check it out on goodreads. You can also read the first thirty four pages. AND... if you need more incentive, those who pre-order ALU and register here will give a BRAND NEW Garrick and Bliss scene Post-Losing It/Keeping Her. EVEN BETTER... you can now order your own signed paperback from Word Bookstore and get it on release day! So far I introduced Carson McClainthe heroine Dallas ColeBFF slash Badass Stella Santos, and now it's time to introduce the bad boys of the Rusk University football team.

We all love a bad boy, right? 

And ALU has not one, but TWO of them! And they're besties, which somehow makes it better. 

First up... Levi Abrams. He's the star quarterback of Rusk University, and has pretty much been a phenom since his high school days. And that MIGHT  has totally gone to his head. He was also Dallas's high school sweetheart, and let's just say that ended rather messily. He's got boy-next-door looks, but a slight patina of douchebaggery (or douchebadgery, as Dallas would say) is definitely starting to show. As far as bad boys go, he's fun to stir up trouble, but he's also kind of a dick. 

A few quotes: 

If you're a Vampire Diaries fan, you might agree on this bit of fancasting...

And in case you were wondering how Dallas feels about him these days: 

“Alcohol and bad decisions, Levi? Can’t say I’m surprised to find you smack-dab in the middle of that.”
He kicks off from the banister, swaggering a few steps closer. His dark hair and eyes are as striking as always. I’d fallen for him so hard my freshman year of high school: doodling our names together in my spiral, watching him play from the bleachers, wearing that monstrous mum he gave me for homecoming, beaming on his elbow at his junior prom.
The memory of all that just makes me nauseated now. But as Stella always says, hindsight is a pretentious, know-it-all bitch.
“You come here to make some bad decisions?” He moves closer, his voice pitching lower. Intimate. His gaze drifts down my body with an arrogant familiarity. “Because you know I can help you with that.”
Levi Abrams has been the cause of enough bad decisions for a lifetime.
Stella steps in, her voice colder than I’ve ever heard it. “I’m fairly certain she’d rather sandpaper her own skin off.”
I nod and plaster on the fakest smile in my arsenal. “And then take a bath in lemon juice.”
Levi smiles back, and I’m pretty sure the bastard is enjoying this. 

And now for SILAS MOORE! 

I'm kind of a Silas fangirl. I know he only exists in my own head, but I DON'T CARE. This *could* have something to do with the fact that I just finished a draft of Book Two in the Rusk University, which is all about him. And ladies and gentlemen (yes, I'm talking to you guys out there)... my first attempt at writing a true bad boy was so much fun. I'll let you decide what I mean by "fun." *wink*

So, in my head, Silas is like this weird combination of surfer laid back and country tough. He's got shaggy dark blonde hair, sinful eyes, a sinful smile... that boy is just all around sinful. He's kind looks like this guy... 

Or Hunter Parrish Or Chris Zylka with long hair... 

And now for some quotes! 

AND because I'm so excited about it, here's the description for ALL BROKE DOWN (Rusk University Book Two):

Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.

Environmental issues, civil rights, corrupt corporations, and politicians—you name it, she’s probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in a police holding cell, she meets Silas Moore. He’s in for a different kind of fighting. And though he’s arrogant and infuriating, she can’t help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.

Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it’s trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He’s met girls like her before—fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn’t think he’s broken, and he definitely doesn’t need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about, his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.

Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.

And now that you've met my bad boys, you can enter to win a signed ARC to meet them for real!
