Preview Package: Keeping Her + Cora Carmack


I don't think it will come as a surprise to those of you who read this blog with any frequency, but I just have to say it again: I adore Cora Carmack's books. I read Losing It a while back and loved it, and then I devoured Faking It just a little bit ago and loved that one even more. Cora Carmack, in my opinion, writes fantastic characters and the types of stories that just suck you right in and absolutely refuse to let you get back to your regularly scheduled life before you reach the last page.

I may or may not have done a spastic happy dance when I found out my time with Garrick and Bliss from Losing It was in fact not over, as Ms. Carmack is gifting us with a novella about their life together post-last chapter. I KNOW! It's awesome. To get you as excited as I am about the upcoming release of Keeping Her (August 13th from William Morrow), I have a very special preview package to share with you today, you'll find all the goodness below.

If that wasn't enough excitement for one day, I have even more news to share. First, Cora and author Jay Crownover (Rule) will be participating in a Goodreads chat on June 26th, so be sure and mark your calendars! Second, join Cora on her Facebook page from 3-4pm EDT on June 27th for a little book club fun with Faking It. You can ask her all your most desperate questions about Max, Cade and their relationship, but first be sure and check out all the preview package fun!

KEEPING HER


Garrick Taylor and Bliss Edwards managed to find their happily-ever-after despite a rather . . . ahem . . . complicated start. By comparison, meeting the parents should be an absolute breeze, right?

But from the moment the pair lands in London, new snags just keep cropping up: a disapproving mother-in-law-to-be, more than one (mostly) minor mishap, and the realization that perhaps they aren't quite as ready for their future as they thought.

As it turns out, the only thing harder than finding love is keeping it.

  3. I enjoy this series, though it's not my favorite because I like a little drama or conflict in my books. It's still fun to read and I didn't knew there was going to be a short story for Bliss and Garrick. I might give it another try. Thanks for sharing it, Jenny!

  4. I have heard so much about Losing It. My neighbor/friend LOVES Cora and is always telling me to read her books.
    My friend thinks reading too many dystopians is bad for the heart and soul..Maybe she has a point.
    I have been looking for a few non scary/dystopian type reads lately.
    Do you suggest "Losing It" as a good first book?
    Have a wonderful weekend :)

  8. I have to admit, seeing the titles had kept me away. I kept thinking too much drama. But your reviews really have me wanting to read her work. Yes, it's your fault! I need to check this out.

  10. EEK! So excited about this. I love Garrick and I am one of those pesky fans who was pestering her for a Garrick POV. But the next stage of their story is even better! Thanks so much for sharing, and for the heads up about the chat. :-)

  13. I think the cover is cute and I was as excited as you were when I found out that indeed, Garrick and Bliss WILL get a chance to continue their story with us and we'll get the chance to follow them on their journey. LOVE these two :) And thank you, sweetie, for sharing the excerpt:)

  14. Yeah I remember reading your review for Losing It and I wanted to read it then and I want to read it even more now! :) I think it'd be a great read after all the exams I had to take. Great review! :)

  15. I haven't tried anything by this author before, but then I've never really been too drawn to the premises. BUT a lot of trusted friends seem to enjoy these books, so I guess it won't be long before I cave in. :)

  16. I really need to read this series! I loved those excerpts (and yes I know that was cheating reading them before the books, but too bad!).

  17. I loved Losing It! Who can resist a hot guy with AN ENGLISH ACCENT, Jenny?!! I still need to read Faking It. I'm so excited about the novella! I must read these extra scenes to refresh my memory a bit. :)

  18. I did not know about this novella and now I'm excited! I enjoyed Losing It, despite the "I must lose my virginity or I'm a loser" plotline. It really was addicting! Now I need to get my hands on Faking it!
