Book Blitz | Sweet Liar (Candy #2) by Debra Doxer

Sweet Liar (Candy #2)



by Debra Doxer



 

Release Date 10/20/15

Summary from Goodreads:

Sometimes lies are sweeter than the truth.







Beauty is alluring; it can disguise the ugliness beneath. But scarred beauty is

even more potent to a girl who vowed never to let her heart be broken again. It

was an easy vow for Candy to keep until she met Jonah, an arrogant boy with a

face that would be too perfect if not for the scar that marred the skin beside

his eye.

That imperfect boy earned her trust and won her heart, but the ties that bind

people together are fragile, especially when lies are told. Trust is also

fragile, and once broken, doesn’t heal like a heart. Trust has to be earned

again, and Jonah desperately wants Candy’s trust back.

But Candy has more than Jonah to worry about. Her father is in trouble, and she

intends to help him whether he likes it or not. People tell her he’s a bad man,

and that may be true, but he’s not all bad. Deep down, she understands his

brand of badness because she’s so much like him.

When Candy finally learns the truth, she’ll have to grow up fast, let go of old

grievances, and realize that being vulnerable doesn’t make her weak. In fact,

opening herself up may be the very thing that makes her whole again.

blurb (2)

Eight years ago, there was no World Government. There were no agents, no carts. The fear of a nosebleed did not exist. Then came The Affection—an incurable disease that ran rampant across the planet, killing off roughly 60% of the human population. Two years later—with order in shambles and governments all over the world in ruins—the World Government formed. That’s when the real trouble began. The WG made it its mission to segregate the sick (known as “Affected”) from the rest of the population in an attempt to keep the disease from spreading. Agents were put into place to corral the ill and the God-forsaken carts were introduced.  

For the past six years, Ethan has lived a quiet life. He has done his best to remain out of the public eye and, more importantly, off of the agents’ radars. However, when his ex-girlfriend, daughter of the famous scientist who first discovered the disease, is captured by agents and taken to World Government headquarters to be experimented upon, Ethan can no longer pretend the world around him doesn’t exist. On his way to save her, Ethan is thrust into a place of turmoil, espionage and conspiracies. Will he be able to handle the pressures of reality? Will he be able to save her in time?

excerpt (2)

The agents lead the chef out of the restaurant. Things do not go back to normal so easily, not the way they did back at the ball game. Awash with the tragedy of the moment, people mourn the loss of the chef in different ways. Some leave, some bow their heads and others lose the battle to tears. The hostess gives a speech about the man the chef is. A round of clapping follows.

“This doesn’t make sense,” Grant says. “The chef was Affected. Doesn’t that mean he was serving Affected food? He could have made us all sick.”

“What’s your point?” I ask.

“My point is that those agents could easily take us all in for fear of contagion. What’s stopping them?”

Cameron’s card comes to mind—the one with the embossed gold lettering and three contact numbers. I sift through my wallet and pull it out.

“Me,” I say, staring at the card. “I’m stopping them.”

ABOUT SUPER FREAK:

Super Freak by Vanessa Barger

Publication Date: October 13, 2015
Publisher: Tantrum Books
Genre: MG, Fantasy

Super-Freak-Cover

Thirteen-year-old Caroline is a freak. Her parents have uprooted her to a town full of Supernaturals. You’d think she’d be thrilled. But, with someone without a magical bone in her body, this daughter of tree sprites feels like even more of an outcast than she has ever before.
To make matters worse, her new home is cursed. But when Caroline takes to investigating the mysterious and strange happenings of Harridan House, her BFF goes missing. Seems someone doesn’t want Caroline sticking her non-magical nose where it most certainly does not belong. Determined to prove herself, Caroline uncovers a plot to destroy her new hometown.
Undeterred, Caroline can’t give up. But what’s a human without magical powers to do? Caroline better figure it out fast, before she loses everything she has ever loved and the whispers she’s heard all her life prove true: Caroline is a useless superfreak.

Excerpts

The office staff was friendly, in a distracted, frazzled way. I had a schedule in my hands and Diana told them she would show me around, so I was quickly dismissed. Just when I heaved a sigh of relief that I hadn’t seen the principal again, he rounded the corner of the hallway and spotted me. A grin broke out on his face and he called my name.
Everyone in the hallway turned and watched as he seized my hand and shook it. “How is the first day going so far?”
Forcing a smile, I answered, “Diana has decided to take me around, so things are going pretty well. Thanks.”I wished I would melt into the floor.
The secretary stuck her head out of the office door and motioned for him. I could have kissed her.
“Have a great day, Caroline. Tell your parents I said hello.”
“Sure thing,” I said. Right after I scrape my reputation off the floor.
Diana tugged my arm, pulling me to the locker they’d assigned me. I struggled with the lock while she leaned against the one next to me. “Where on earth did you meet him?”
“Right after we drove into town the other day. My Dad almost ran him over.” I said, yanking on the lock. The door swung open with a squeal.
Diana blinked. “Life with you isn’t boring, is it?”
A couple of kids snickered behind me. “I wish it was.”
Someone muttered something about being a pet behind me. Diana glared and the girl slunk away to another corner. I’d spent the last year trying not to be known as a teacher’s pet. Now I’d be known as a principal’s pet. Could life get any worse?
I should have known better than to ask that.

– SYNOPSIS –

Emily McPhee is in the clutches of a monster… 

Despite the protection of her boyfriend Seth Connors and his colleagues with the Orange Police Department, Emily is imprisoned in a basement by her psychopathic stalker Jimmy Lasko. His bizarre behavior adds to her terror, and a video link forces Seth to witness her captivity, leaving him feeling helpless as he, the OPD, and the FBI search for her. 

Freedom isn’t free, and safety is just an illusion… 

Though Emily escapes the basement, the threat is far from eliminated. In fact, things she learned while being held by Lasko lead her to believe he isn’t working alone. Lasko is still out there, determined to get her back, and crazier than ever. If he does have a partner, Emily has no idea where the threat might lie or who she can trust. 

It’s impossible to live a normal life when family ties become tangled. 

Emily is deeply hurt when Seth is reminded that their relationship might endanger her further and he pulls away again. She’s even more frustrated when her globe-trotting mother returns and is charming to everybody…except her own daughter. 

When Emily meets Seth’s family, she loves his mom and little sister, isn’t sure what to make of his flirtatious brother—who is also a cop—and finds herself very uneasy around his father, who is a powerful attorney. 

Sometimes things seem very clear…until you look more closely.
