Guest Author: Erin McCarthy (+Contest)

Erin McCarthyI am excited to welcome author Erin McCarthy, who is here celebrating the release of her new adult novel, True, with her top 5 favorite quotes and lines.

When Rory Macintosh’s roommates find out that their studious and shy friend has never been with a guy, they decide that, as an act of kindness they’ll help her lose her virginity by hiring confident, tattooed bad boy Tyler Mann to do the job…unbeknownst to Rory.

Tyler knows he’s not good enough for Rory. She’s smart, doctor smart, while he’s barely scraping by at his EMT program, hoping to pull his younger brothers out of the hell their druggy mother has left them in. But he can’t resist taking up her roommates on an opportunity to get to know her better. There’s something about her honesty that keeps him coming back when he knows he shouldn’t…

Torn between common sense and desire, the two find themselves caught up in a passionate relationship. But when Tyler’s broken family threatens to destroy his future, and hers, Rory will need to decide whether to cut her ties to his risky world or follow her heart, no matter what the cost…

Make sure you stick around to the end. We’ll be giving away an ecopy of True.


Top 5 Favorite Quotes and Lines from True

1. “The expression isn’t ‘I talk, therefore I am.’”

2. Ironic, wasn’t it, that the physical heart was so hard to reach, yet my emotional heart seemed to have been found with very little effort on Tyler’s part.

3. “You had me the minute I first saw you and I heard you telling the guy next to you that you were pre-med and that the Human Centipede movie is physically impossible.”

4. I went over to him by the garbage cans and I put my hands on his cheeks, drawing his face towards mine, going up on my tiptoes so I could see into his eyes with more clarity. “Actually, I’ve never been more impressed with you than I am right now.”

5. “In the world of Stellas and Stanleys and Blanches, I was destined to be Harold, the guy who is never in on the joke and wants everyone to like him, and never has a freaking clue what is really going on.”

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
