Release Day Blitz *GIVEAWAY* Right Now (In the Moment Series #2) by Marie Hall

Sometimes in life....

Things were supposed to get better when Ryan met Lili. I was supposed to move on, get a life... but I'm stuck and lost. Things with my father are not good. There are demons in our closet, big ones. Ones I want to kill him for, I'm seeing a shrink, I'm trying to get better... but my life feels out of control, like I'm a raft adrift on the sea. I don't know where to look, how to get anchored again, and then I meet Zoe Stone. Something about her draws me out of my rut, makes me laugh for real, smile, and for the first time in years I want to be more. But what will she think when she discovers who I really am?

...all we have...

When Alexander Donovan, aka The Golden Adonis, walks into my tattoo parlor, I know I'll do anything to make that man mine. There's an instant connection, a need to know more about him. Everything about him. But there's also a mystery surrounding the guy, when people look at him they only see the man that laughs, that cracks jokes and makes the world think that everything's okay, but I see the truth... I see the darkness that lurks so deep inside few would ever recognize it. I want to help him, I want to be with him, now I just have to make him trust me enough to let me in.

Is Right Now

Rubbing my finger along the scruff on my jaw, the flicker of a neon light hooked my attention. It was coming off a sign from across the street: The Garage.
Flash art covered the walls and doors, old style sailor tattoos and more modern tribal art. I flicked the paper in my pocket again.
A pinup painted on the side of the wall wore a Betty Page smile while reclining on her side, her entire body was covered in ink. A blue bikini and screw me red heels were the only things she had on.
Never in my life had I ever wanted to paint my body; the thought never even crossed my mind.
Until now.
“Be opposite, huh?” I muttered as I quickly crossed the street. “I’ll show you fucking opposite.”
I wasn’t really sure who I was talking to, maybe the universe, all I knew was that sheet of paper had challenged me and it wasn’t going to win.
Feeling all sorts of reckless and stupid, I opened the door, blinking as my eyes adjusted to the harsh fluorescent lights. More tattoo art covered the walls. Groups of people crowded the small space pointing and giggling over the designs on the walls, grinding metal bled through the speakers and the constant hum and buzz of needles made a small smile latch itself to my face.
The room smelled of ink and rubbing alcohol. There were four stations, each set up with a menagerie of inkwells and a large silver contraption that could only be the tattoo gun. Two guys were working, one of them—tall, blond, and built like a freaking tank sporting a wicked goatee dyed flaming red at the bottom—was bent over a girl’s thigh, drawing a cherry blossom tree.
The design was massive, the branches started off at the center of her ribs and ended with the roots at the mid-point of her thigh. She was laying on her side, face scrunched up with pain as she bit down on her knuckle.
Next to her the other guy—dressed all in black from head to toe with a silver chain dangling from his pockets—was about my height and build with cropped black hair. He was working on a short Asian guy’s back. The piece was also massive, a Chinese dragon and tiger coiled around each other while their claws scaled his shoulders. Unlike the girl, the guy was in zen mood, eyes shut and chatting lightly with the artist behind him.

Marie Hall has always had a dangerous fascination for creatures that go bump in the night. And mermaids. And of course fairies. Trolls. Unicorns. Shapeshifters. Vampires. Scottish brogues. Kilts. Beefy arms. Ummm... Bad boys! Especially the sexy ones.

On top of that she’s a confirmed foodie, she nearly went to culinary school and then figured out she could save a ton of money if she just watched food shows religiously! She’s a self-proclaimed master chef, certified deep sea dolphin trainer, finder of leprechaun’s gold at the end of the rainbow, and rumor has it she keeps the Troll King locked away in her basement. All of which is untrue, however, she does have an incredibly active imagination and loves to share her crazy thoughts with the world!
