Because of Low Excerpt +GIVEAWAY!

Hey Guys...Today I have a treat for you!
I have an Excerpt form Marcus POV(That's right......the GUYS POV)

I finally managed to untangle myself from Jess. I wanted to dance with Willow. I’d watched her briefly when I’d first arrived and all I could think about was being close to her and touching her while she moved like that. Jess had come along and delayed me. Dewayne sat at the table with Rock and Trisha. They were laughing and talking but there was no Willow. I glanced toward the bar but I couldn’t see her in the crowd of people.
“Where’s Willow?”
“What? No love for me first?” Rock taunted as he smirked up at me.
I turned to Dewayne. He was leaned back in his chair with a long neck beer in his hands as he watched me.
“Where’s Willow?” I asked him specifically this time.
He flicked the metal bar in his bottom lip and tilted his head toward the door, “Went to get some air a while ago.”
Oh no.
“How long ago?”
Dewayne seemed to be enjoying my frustration. He put a stupid cigarette to his lips and took a long drag then shrugged, “Since you ran off with Jess.”
I turned to head outside when my phone rang. I hoped it wasn’t Manda with another crisis concerning Mom right now. That was the last thing I needed. I had been making some headway with Willow. Until Jess had drug me out onto the dance floor.
“Hello,” I said pressing the phone close to my ear as I stepped outside.
“I got my girl. I’m taking her home. In case you remembered you were her ride and couldn’t find her later I wanted you to know.”
Cage had come to get Willow. HELL!
“Why, what’s wrong? She okay?”
She’d called Cage to come get her and he’d come to rescue her. Where had I been? Dancing. Perfect. Just perfect.
“She was just tired and ready for bed. Didn’t want to bother you and your girl. I got her. All’s good. Later man.”

About the Book

Marcus Hardy had hoped to enjoy a year away at college while he put the summer he’d rather forget behind him. But instead, he’s jerked right back to the coastal town of Sea Breeze, Alabama due to a family crisis. His dear ol' dad found himself a girlfriend only a few years older than Marcus. So now his sister needs help dealing with their mother who is mentally falling apart. The only bright spot to returning is the fascinating red head who sleeps over several times a week. The problem is she's sleeping in bed with his new roommate, Cage Watson.

Willow “Low” Foster needs a place to live. Running to Cage’s apartment every time her sister kicks her out isn’t exactly a long term solution. Juggling her courses at the local community college and a part time job doesn’t produce excess income. But Cage has a new roommate and suddenly sleeping over at her best friend’s apartment isn’t such a bad thing. Not when she gets to see those sexy green eyes of Marcus Hardy’s twinkle when he smiles at her like he wants her there.

Even though Cage seems a little territorial where Low is concerned, Marcus finds time to spend with Low without upsetting his roommate. Cage may use his small college baseball star persona to sleep with every hot female in his path but he’s still under the disillusion that when he’s through sowing his wild oats, he’s going to marry Low. Marcus intends to change that assumption for both Cage and Low. Until his carefully laid plans come crashing down with a revelation he never expected. He’ll have to choose between Low or his family. Because once the truth comes out.... there’s no other choice.

  1. Ah I love reading from the guys POV!! And Marcus was so adorable in Breathe so I can't wait to see what he is like in Because of Low!!

  2. Oh Marcus! I've got first-dibs on him in terms of a book-boyfriend! He's awesome:) I love this excerpt because you can really feel how frustrated Marcus is with himself and how he's possibly blown his shot with Willow. YOu really feel for him - and I love the way Cage kinda gets involved:)

    Thanks for this and I so hope I win the grand prize because I just know after following the tour I'd totally fall in love with Abbi's stories.

  7. I'm curious how different it is from the male POV. As a community college librarian, I try to purchase some recreational reading that will appeal to young male readers--reluctant readers.
