Goodnight and good luck and a GIVEAWAY with Amber Lin's Giving It Up

I hope today has been fun and arousing for you. In fact, that's my wish for you for EVERY DAY, because life's more fun that way ;-)

I've posted here about my debut book, Giving It Up, including an excerpt, the book trailer and the sexy-awesome casting call. Giving It Up is an erotic book, certainly. It's also got some suspense elements. But at its heart, it's a romance, because I'm a girl who loves an happy ending!

So on that note, I'm winding down my last post of the party by giving away a copy of Giving It Up. All you have to do is post a comment telling me who you're thinking about tonight, whether they're with you or not.

Thanks for partying all day with us!

GIVING IT UP by Amber Lin

Allie prowls the club for a man who will use her hard and then ditch her. Hey, it's not rape if she wants it. Instead she finds Colin, who looks tough but treats her tenderly, despite her protests.

He tempts her, but kindness and a few mindblowing orgasms aren't enough to put her back together again. Allie has no hope for a real relationship. Two years ago her best friend betrayed her in the worst possible way – she’d be stupid to trust a man again. Besides, she has her daughter to think of, the only good thing to have come from that dark night.

But when her rapist returns, threatening her sanity and custody of her daughter, Allie turns to Colin. Under his protection and patient touch, Allie begins to heal and learns to hope. Colin’s no saint, though, and his criminal past draws danger of its own. Allie must fight to protect her child and the man she loves, hoping her newfound power will be enough to save them all.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: dubious consent.

“Giving It Up is original, affecting, emotionally draining, but well worth reading if you are brave enough to go along for the ride.”
Annabel Joseph, author of Comfort Object

“A ballsy departure from romantic conventions. At once gritty and tender, stark and hopeful.”
Cara McKenna, author of Willing Victim

“Giving It Up is an erotic, compelling story that takes us to the shadowy, lonely places but doesn’t leave us there. Amber Lin shows us that romance isn’t just for the rich and shiny. Love can find its way even into the dark corners of the most damaged hearts.”
Tiffany Reisz, author of The Siren

“This is a book you MUST read if you like gritty, edgier romance that makes you think as well as turns you on.”
Cari Quinn, USA Today Bestselling Author of No Dress Required

“Every page is chock full of sexy, angsty must-read-moreness.”
Karla Doyle, author of Game Plan

“Giving It Up is a gritty, real romance that deals in an honest way with what happens to sexuality in the aftermath of rape…. Read it. You won’t be sorry.”
Ruthie Knox, author of About Last Night

“Dark and edgy…but don’t be fooled. There’s a wonderful love story running through this book. Sharp, intense writing, sexy as hell, and such a cool idea!”
Charlotte Stein, author of Sheltered

Who I'm thinking about tonight? I was thinking about work. Thinking about my hubby earlier when he was out working and it was so hot. Thinking about my mom who had a repair done to her air conditioning last week--I called to make sure it was holding up in these brutal temps...And also thinking about myself because my foot has been bothering me. And this is all in a thinking day off!

I'm thinking about my oldest son...he's spending the week with his dad. I don't like it when he's gone, I feel as though a piece of me is always missing when he's there and not here with me.

Thanks for the party!

Considering that I did not sleep well last night, all I am really thinking about right now is my bed, lol.
