Hey all, so the resounding winner of my picture contest was OPTION Two which looks like this...
Special shout out to Karen L who gave me the best answer, "The first one looks all dark but very cool but the second one gives me a bubbly feeling and makes me happy when I look at it. I love the script writing on top but the serious name. Pick two!"
Karen- you win the paperback copy! :):):):):)
Anyways, now onto the fun stuff. Last week we met Nathalie from A Reliant Love. So today, get ready to meet Sam!
Samuel Torrington was a jock in high school. He was only 14 when he lost his virginity to his first love, Sarah. She was perfect and they were the IT couple all though high school. But Sarah and Sam got into drugs. They dove head first into the party scene and hung out with all the older kids who were into the hard stuff. Sam got into cocaine and started slipping up on his grades, skipping practice and pushing away friends.
Something happened and Sam ended up in juvie. So he vows to never do cocaine again, and to get the hell away from his past. Sarah and him break up, Sarah's twin, Pete his best friend refuses to talk to him. He drops off the team and lives in a depressed lull.
His parents told him he can either go to college or get the hell out of their lives so he choses college. He visits Sarah before he goes and they make up, creating a good friendship. But Pete refuses to talk to him and that gets worse when the two go to the same college.
The book begins in Sam's last year at UMA. He's a senior and his plan has been working flawlessly. After he graduates he plans to move far far away and start a new life without drugs, girls or the past creeping up on him. But then he meets Nathalie, a sweet innocent freshman and feels a need to know her.
Sam has dark brown hair and deep green eyes. He's 23 years old and his birthday is August 25th. He's six feet tall and muscular but since quitting football he's lost some weight. He prefers hanging out in small groups lately. He dreams of running away and never coming back.
What do you think of Samuel?

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
