To be honest, I almost forgot about teasing you all today! I chose this part because I like it. It doesn't give away much. It is almost halfway through the book. This gives a sneak peak into the start of Ryder and Ari's friendship/relationship/bickering. They are pretty funny. Ari gets introduced to Ryder's dad. It's an awkward moment. Here it is... I hope you like it!
“Hey dad” I go over and kiss him on the cheek. Ari stands behind me in the doorway. “Is it okay if I have a plus one tonight?” I ask him and pray that one, he says yes and two, he doesn't embarrass me. Although, even if he did embarrass me I don’t think Ari would be scared off.
“Of course no problem at all.” He stops cooking and turns to face us. He wipes his hand on his apron and smiles at Ari. He looks very femiinine in his apron and slacks. “You must be Ollie.” Dad says cheerfully and I die.
“Dad! No, this is ARI” I make an emphasis on the name. Damn him.
“Oh I’m so sorry. Pleasure to meet you Ari.” He says but I am still mortified. I can tell he is embarrassed for the both of us. His face is a little redder than it was before. I must get that trait from him. I excuse us and tell dad to call us when it is ready. I take him into the basement which has a couch and tv in it. The living room would be the obvious choice but it connects to the kitchen and I don’t want to be in ear shot of dad. He can be a creeper sometimes.
I hope you liked it! Let me know what you all think!

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."
