‘Chasing Impossible’ by Katie McGarry release day blitz

chasing impossible

Blurb
Tough and independent, 17-year-old Abby lets very few people into her inner circle. It’s common knowledge in her Kentucky town that she deals drugs, but not even her closest friends know why. But when a deal goes south and Abby’s suddenly in danger, she finds herself reluctantly forced to lean on daredevil Logan—a boy whose restless spirit matches her own.

Logan has his own reasons for wanting to keep Abby at arms’ length. But he never expected to find in her the one person who might help him face the demons he’s tried so hard to run from.

Together, Abby and Logan will have to make a decision: let their current circumstances weigh them down forever…or fight for the future they both thought was impossible.

Review

Excerpt

People near the stage scream and clap and I’m about ready to throw my cell against the wall. Stupid, stupid boy and stupid me for stupidly somewhat liking him and him thinking he can get away with not answering me.

“Give it up for our boy Logan.”

My eyes rip up, go for the stage, and my mind shifts into reverse, fast-forward, rewind, and then that smile that’s associated with the devil slides across my face.

Logan stands strong on the stage. Guitar strapped across his chest. Baseball cap backwards on his black hair. And when he strikes the strings of the guitar, those biceps flex beautifully.

That chord just struck a lot deeper than anyone could have imagined. Past my bones, past my muscles, and it’s created a nice warmth that’s curling around my belly. Liquid warmth.

The logical part of my brain demands that I walk away, but he’s the one that scared me by not answering back. He’s the one that’s causing all these alien emotions stirring in my veins.

Yeah, I shouldn’t kiss Logan. I should definitely leave a boy like that alone. But he returned and he’s the one that climbed onto the stage and is looking addictively sexy with that guitar.

Yep, shouldn’t kiss him, but I already told Rachel, I’m going to kiss the guitarist tonight. Wouldn’t want that one to be a lie, now, would I?

Review – ‘Chasing Impossible’ by Katie McGarry – Abby and Logan steal your heart in this book

chasing impossible

Format: ebook

Format read: e-book
Series: book 5 of The Pushing the Limits series
Rating: 15+ for language, sensual content, dark themes
Genre: Young Adult
Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25263399-chasing-impossible?from_search=true&search_version=service

In this book that was only available to those who had pre-ordered the first book of her new series, Nowhere But Here. In this book, we read Abby and Logan’s story as they both struggle with the world they live in so use each other  to escape it. Problem is, their reality is still there and comes destroying their dream world.

If you didn’t get the chance to get this book, you are going to regret it. Logan and Abby’s story is one of the best of the series, and that is saying a lot for this series. Logan has got that whole bad boy but good kid at heart thing going on. He has a disability that he chooses to hide from the people in his life because he doesn’t want to be thought of as anything less then what he is.

Abby is stuck into her life because it’s the only way that she can get the money that she needs. She likes Logan and the way that he helps her escape the world she has to live, but the dangers that comes with it keep her from acting on her feelings for him. She is a strong-willed individual that needs someone like Logan to help her see that she needs to enjoy being young before it’s too late.

The relationship between Logan and Abby is a close tie to Echo and Noah’s relationship. They both have that ying/yang thing going where each couple completes the other one in the relationship. What I like the most about Logan and Abby’s relationship is the back and forth that they have. They have no problem using sarcasm (which I am a big fan of) to break the silences that may happen and they know that if it came down to it, they would always have each other’s backs.

It is no surprise that Katie McGarry filled the book with messages that we can use in our own life. McGarry’s word reach deep inside the soul and can change someone’s outlook on what is going on in their life. The worlds and characters that she creates are so real that you feel like you are a part of their world. You want to keep going back to this world over and over again as we find out what happens to these characters. We want, no need, to make sure that are all going to be ok.

As of right now, it’s not available for sale. This is good for those fans that had pre-ordered, but not so much for those who didn’t. Time can only tell if that is going to be the case.

“Nowhere but Here” by Katie McGarry Release Day Blitz

nowhere but here

NY Times Best-Selling author, Katie McGarry launches a new book in a new series that looks like it will follow around a biker gang. The first book follows a member, Oz, as he falls for the girl who comes from a different world, Emily.


Official Blurb

An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible 

Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she’s curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn’t mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both. 

Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They’re the good guys. They protect people. They’re…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club’s most respected member—is in town, he’s gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it’s his shot at his dream. What he doesn’t count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down. 

No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.

 Excerpt

OZ

WIND BLOWS IN FROM THE NORTH AND A FEW pieces of Emily’s dark hair sweep across her face. One min­ute Emily’s a bright flame, then a gust snuffs out her light. Her body sways like a top at the tail end of a spin and I lunge forward.

Emily’s knees give out and her eyes roll back into her head. I catch her inches before she crashes onto the porch. She’s light as I swing her into my arms and her head circles onto my shoulder, reminding me of one of those rag dolls Violet used to play with when we were kids.

“Emily!” Eli’s on top of me, attempting to yank her out of my arms. “Open your eyes.”

Her eyelids flutter, but remain closed as her hand limply clutches my shirt. Eli rams his arms underneath mine and he makes Emily a rope in a tug-of-war. I should let her go. I should want to let her go, but then Emily goes and screws it up for me. “Oz.” 

It was a damn whisper, but I heard my name on her lips and so did Eli. His eyes flash to mine and Cyrus’s words repeat in my mind. That girl trusts you. And screw us both for that.

“She’s exhausted,” I say. “Hasn’t slept at all tonight.”

Eli’s expression hardens as he glares at me. I’ve seen Eli throw a coma-inducing punch for less defiance and I readjust the sleeping girl in my arms. A reminder if he decks me now, he’ll be putting his daughter at risk.

Temporarily surrendering, Eli cups Emily’s face in his hands and angles her toward him. “Emily, please open your eyes.”

She does. It’s barely a crack and they’re completely glazed.

“Everything’s going to be okay,” Eli affirms.

“I want my mom and dad,” she mumbles.

“You’ll see them tomorrow.” Eli pushes a strand of hair from her cheek. “You’re safe here. I promise.”

She rejects Eli by curling into me. Her head fits perfectly in the crook of my neck and I loathe the wave of protective­ness that rumbles through my body. Emily’s fingers tighten their grip near my shoulders and the impulse is to shield her from the guys gawking at this intimate scene. Yeah, this is club business, but Emily never asked for any of this.
