Another book I'm highly anticipating and that's on my Goodreads TBR! Moving Forward by Erika Taylor looks so awesome! Oh yea, I'm doing this.................................................................................................
I have a feelings it's going to be a real ROCKING read! Now for a little "taste" of Moving Forward:
Let me start off by saying, I love my bestie Mallory all the time but sometimes… I really,
really love her. She always knows how to pick my spirits up, or how to get me to do something
I think is completely crazy, but is actually so needed. So, with that being said, the fact I haven’t
seen Derek in four days sucks. No, scratch that, it completely blows.
Admitting that I actually have a crush on someone is still hard to admit to myself. It
almost feels like I’m cheating on Jake. The fact that I’m thinking about seeing Derek more than
thinking about how much I miss Jake is making me feel somewhat guilt ridden. Then again, I
also know that it is something I need, I know I will never forget Jake…no matter who is in my life
but that doesn’t make it any easier. I’m kinda confused by these sudden feelings I’m having for
someone who is practically a stranger.
When I get home after being thoroughly disappointed again that there was no Derek at
the school, I feel like I’m about to Hulk out. Maybe it’s the way he left me Friday night…a little
worked up, hot and bothered, moisten between my legs…freaking feeling like a lioness in heat.
He’s a freaking tease. He did this to me on purpose.
I walk into my room and on my bed is a little purple with yellow polka dots gift bag with a
card sticking out. I take the card out and it reads ‘Thinking of You in Your Time of Need’ on the
“Humph….” I say to no one in the room. I open the card and read it aloud. “Hey Jes! I
know you’d never buy this for yourself, but trust me when I say, you need it! Seriously, I am your
Best Friend. Love ya, Mal.”
I dump the bag over and pull the pink tissue paper away. “What the hell is that?” I say,
again to no one. I pick it up and I swear I’m holding a bedazzled tampon holder. It’s small, fits in
my hand and it’s slightly bigger than a lipstick holder. I go to open it and the damn thing starts
buzzing and shaking in my hand. I drop it.
Mallory bought me a battery operated toy. I start laughing thinking about our
conversation after the concert. She was so right, I would never buy myself a battery operated
toy or any kind of sex toy.
For the last year, sex has been the last thing on my mind. The fact that I’m now
experiencing some signs of sexual tension makes me blush as the butterflies start to flap
around because I know damn well who is responsible for these reincarnated feelings.
Just so you know Erika Taylor is absolutely hysterical in her day-to-day life, too! Here's your chance to "get" to know her a little better ..........
Erika Taylor was born into the army lifestyle as an only child. Being the
only child, she learned to keep herself entertained by unleashing her inner
tomboy. Fishing, navigating through the woods and tree climbing were a
few of her favorite escapes as a child along with her fast growing love of
video games. While she is still a down home girl at heart, she grew to love
music and left the wildness behind. She is a devoted lover of music and a
closet groupie. Genre of choice is always rock but she has been known to
kick it old school from time to time and jam to the 90s greatest hits. Her
passion for music fueled her imagination and she has since found at age
twenty-nine that she loves to read. While reading didn’t seem to interest
her growing up you will almost always find her with her nose in a book
nowadays. Erika is currently a native to Oklahoma where she lives with
her husband and five small children that they have combined between the
two of them. She admits to loving caramel frappe’s, getting her hair done,
Ace Ventura When Nature Calls and candy of choice being Airheads. She blames The Hunger Games book series for her newly formed addiction to
reading, which has since brought on her desire to write. She is currently
working on her debut novel “Moving Forward” set to release March 23rd, 2013.
