Permanent Lines Blog Tour and Giveaway

Merrick Drake.

Bartender, dirt bike racer, and far from settling down…until that one race, and that one girl that changed everything.

Amelia Driscoll.

Amelia took Merrick by surprise, bringing out emotions that he never knew existed. Amelia stole his heart…

Only to break it.

When fate puts Merrick and Amelia back together, it doesn’t come without a price- it comes with vengeance, determination, and putting his life on the line for the one he loves. 

But, how much is Merrick willing to put on the line to have a future with no reason to hide? In the end, fate will decide...

Who's permanent.

Some words, a disclaimer, from Merrick Drake, himself:

I’m just going to put it out there…I’m sorry I’m a f*cking pussy at the beginning of this book. It isn’t any secret, Amelia burned me bad—like motherf*cking, stab me in the heart, leave me lying there by myself bad, but dammit, I wouldn’t change anything if I was ever given the chance. You’ll see that Amelia is damn near perfect and worth every second of misery she put me through. If you find yourself saying, “Jesus Christ, this guy needs to grow a set!” I don’t blame you, but just keep reading. I redeem myself pretty damn well, if I do say so myself, but beware, because holy $hit do things get intense! Enjoy reading, my friends—my life is a whole clusterf*ck of crazy, but somehow it all comes full circle by the end. 

Merrick Drake

Merrick.... I don't like his character.  I think he is a pansy.  He should just shoot himself already.  Enough of his whining and pining over a woman he know for just a couple of days.  Seriously dude... get over yourself.  
Those were my thoughts for the first part of the book.  I couldn't believe what I was reading.  I wanted to bitch slap him for page upon page upon page.  Sweet is one thing, but sweet isn't what I would use to describe Merrick.  I can't come up with one word to describe him.

Then, when fate puts him face to face with Amelia again, he runs like a girl.  Yes, I did just say that.  Then things get going.  However, this is close to the middle of the book.  A little later than I would have expected.  From that point on, the book had my attention.  Although, things went very fast from there, they kept me reading.  I wanted the happy, sappy ending.  

Did I get the ending I wanted?  Well, I can't say.  I can't be a spoiler and I am not sure the ending did it for me.  Overall, the book is good.  It starts out very slow.  But things heat up and make up for the slow beginning to a unique story-line.
