I'm so excited for the release of Getting Played tomorrow!!! I'll be honest and tell you this book was super hard to write. I wrote Getting Dirty in six days in January. This one took me over a month, which is long for me. There were a few reasons for this. First, I struggled a little with the fact that Getting Played has an entirely different feel than Getting Dirty. I know some people have issues with insta-attraction in books, but in my reality, that's how it often happens. I picked my now husband out of a crowd in a fraternity basement at a party when we were in college. There were sparks before the first word was spoken. That's Caiden and Blaire's relationship--sparks that burst into an inferno. Marcus and Addie are a different story. Their's is more of a slow burn, mostly because Marcus understands how wrong it is for a 23 year old guy to be attracted to a 17 year old girl and spends the first half of the book in denial. I wasn't sure how my Getting Dirty readers would respond to the shift in gears, so I kept trying to massage the story and force my characters in a direction they weren't willing to go. This never works. Readers can tell in the first few pages if a story isn't authentic. You all know the ones. You read a few pages and say to yourself, I don't buy it, before putting it down and never picking it back up. So...I'm putting Addie and Marcus out there for you to judge just as they are. I hope you feel them as much as Blaire and Caiden.
The good news is, Getting Played is a standalone, so you don't have to read Getting Dirty first. However, if you want to meet Marcus and experience his sister's rocky road first, you can Get Dirty for cheap this week. Getting Dirty will be on sale through the end of the week for only 99 cents for Kindle, Nook, Kobo, and iBooks.
