Find Breaking the Rules:
I am the first stop on the tour, which means we are kicking things off with a letter from Katie McGarry!! A huge thank you to Katie for taking the time to put together so many amazing posts for this blog tour! She is the best! If you haven’t read her books, you seriously need to fix that. It’s a BIG MISTAKE.
NOW GET EXCITED!!!
Echo and Noah aren’t in high school anymore, and the rules have changed. Immediately after they graduated at the end of my very first novel, Pushing the Limits, Echo and Noah took off across the United States in their quest for freedom, for self-discovery and to figure each other out as a couple.
Breaking the Rules takes place during one week near the end of their road trip, and follows Echo and Noah’s first steps toward adulthood during that exciting and frightening time right after high school. Because of that, this story does deal with more mature themes, and I confess I swooned, blushed and cried several times while writing it. Those of you who have read Pushing the Limits will understand my tears. Echo and Noah have been through a lot in their eighteen years and, at the end of Pushing the Limits, they saw their first rays of hope for a better life, but, truth be told, they still have a lot of emotional baggage to deal with before they can truly find happiness. This is the reason why I decided to continue their story. I wanted these two characters I had fallen in love with to find true happiness, and that meant there were several demons they had to face down first. I’m honored that I was given the opportunity to write Echo and Noah’s continuing story, and I’m very proud of how Breaking the Rules turned out.
In case you’re wondering, Breaking the Rules takes place in the time period between the end of Pushing the Limits and the beginning of Beth’s novel, Dare You To. It can definitely be read as a standalone, but readers who have followed the rest of the series might enjoy the subtle nods to my other books. For example, Dare You To fans might remember exactly why Beth has a love/hate relationship with the Yankees, while those of you who’ve read Crash Into You know where Isaiah’s hope for a happily-ever-after ultimately leads him. I hope that while reading this book you’ll laugh, you’ll cry and you’ll fall in love all over again with Echo, Noah and the friends who become their family.
With lots of love,
