Anyways today is my stop on the Undertow by Callie Kingston tour hosted by A Tale Of Many Reviews Blog Tours! I love being apart of there tours there always so fun =) Anyways today I have an excerpt for you awesome people. But first let's find out a bit about the book shall we?
Book Blurb: (Taken off Goodreads)
Reality is slipping away as Marissa sinks deeper into an abyss. Only truth and love can bring her back from the edge.
While she slept on a desolate beach on the wild Oregon coast, a rogue wave pulled her out to sea. Now Marissa dreams each night of a merman who rescued her. Obsessed, she risks her life once again in the frigid ocean. Will Marissa recover or remain forever lost in the eddies inside her mind?
Sometimes, the deadliest dangers lie within.
I have a copy of this book and I cannot wait to read it because it sounds really good! Now for the excerpt!
Marissa zipped her jacket and yanked the hood over her head. The cold front approching made the air much colder than usual. Wrapping her scarf haphazardly around her neck, she stepped from the apartment into the chilly morning.
At breakfast, she'd pretend everything was normal. Jim had cooked toast and fried eggs, and grinned at her across his tiny Formica table. She managed to make small talk with him.
"How's school going?" she asked.
"Digging Geology," he said, and when she didn't laugh at his pun, he nudged, "Where's your killer sense of humor today? Still sleeping?"
Marissa laughed, confused. She needed to be careful; Jim was her only insurance against winding up at her mother's. Whatever happened, he could never know the truth.
"Are you feeling okay today?" Jim's brow had that little wavy line she thought was so cute, but this morning her heart didn't jump the way it usually did when she looked at him.
"Yeah. Sure. I'm fine," she said. In fact, she never felt better. This morning, she heard him singing again, beckoning, and knew that soon, they would be together.
"What do you want to do today? It's blustery out. Feel like snuggling with your big bear?"
He stuck out his flat stomach and rubbed it. Jim didn't look a thing like a bear, and she couldn't help but laugh.
"Nah. I have to go study today. Library day. Research." He couldn't object to studying, she knew. Not with her grades slipping.
"Work hard so we can play tonight." He winked at her.
Marissa cleared her breakfast dishes and gave him a kiss goodbye. She stood at the door, coat on, and he gave her a weird look. "Aren't you forgetting something?"
She just stared at him, unable to figure out what he meant,
"Ditzy!" He laughed. "What about your backpack?"
Why did she keep forgetting all the details? She blushed and grabbed the pack from the sofa where she'd parked it after class on Thursday. Hard ro study without any texts, she thought. But she wouldn't need a degree where she was going.
"Off with you, now! Go forth and conquer books." Jim shoed her out the door.
Damn usually I don't like reading excerpts because I'm paranoid that there might be spoilers! but I read this one and it makes me want to read the book even more! I hope you guys enjoyed the excerpt click here is where you can go to check out the rest of the stops on the tour!
