I'm on a mini vacation celebrating the book launch and seven years married to my best friend, BUT I couldn't miss participating in Melanie Harlow's Speak Low cover reveal. So today's reveal is brought to you from a foreign country with a cocktail in hand. Somehow I think Melanie would approve....
A few of you may remember I participated in Melanie's Speak Easy cover reveal earlier this year--A beautiful 1920's themed cover. Well, after reading Speak Easy, I am even more excited to participate in this cover reveal! Speak Low is the second book in this fabulous new adult historical series. If you haven't read Speak Easy, stop everything right now and go get it! IT'S ONLY 99 CENTS THIS WEEK! And I'm telling you, I'd pay waaaay more for it! I freakin' loved this book! 99 cents is a steal, people!
Anyway I'm getting off topic. Let's talk about Speak Low...
We always want what we can’t have.
Tiny O’Mara is tired of living in a world where men make all the rules. After bootlegging enough whiskey to free her father from the DiFiore crime family, twenty-year old Tiny is determined to gain her independence.
But it’s going to cost her.
Her alliance with sultry Enzo DiFiore is based more on their explosive chemistry than loyalty or trust. But she’s promised him some information that will help him take revenge on The River Gang, and when he offers her a job, an apartment, and the prospect of nights spent together where anything goes, she can’t refuse—which only puts her further in his debt.
She needs gorgeous childhood pal Joey Lupo to help her again—when they’re not at each other’s throats, they make a good team, and her attraction for him is becoming impossible to deny. But after she rejects his offer to leave town together, he’s tempted to let her fend for herself.
As Enzo’s need for possession and power escalate and her feelings for Joey deepen, Tiny realizes her mistakes. She just hopes she gets the chance to fix them before it’s too late.
Now that I've made you read for it....
Mark your calendars now! November 4th, 2013
Melanie Harlow likes her martinis dry, her lipstick red, and her history with the naughty bits left in. SPEAK EASY was inspired by her cocktail-culture obsession, her affection for good gin, and the view from the end of her street. She lifts her glass to NA readers and writers from her home near Detroit, MI.
