*Cover Reveal* FOUR YEARS LATER by Monica Murphy



Okay....I think this is one of my FAVORITE of Monica Murphy's covers....seriously...it's sexy, and fun and the models...sooo hot...um..just go look at it.

Without any further ado, here it is:





Four Years Later by Monica Murphy
Publication Date: February 2014

Guilt. That is all I ever feel when I think about my mom. Now she's back in my life, always wanting something. Having her around makes it so easy for me to fall into those bad habits that get me into trouble. Skipping class, smoking weed, fooling around with girls that mean nothing to me...I'm messing up. The last thing I need is my sister on my case.

So I keep my mom's return a secret. But promising I'll get my grades back up on my own isn't enough. Fable makes me see a tutor. And Chelsea is the smartest girl I've ever met. She's definitely not my type but there's something about her that I'm drawn to. She's sweet, she's shy and she seems completely immune to my usual moves.

Chelsea has her own secrets and she's not talking. Like I have any room to judge. How can I get her to open up to me? And will I ever be able to convince her that what we have could be something real?


BUT WAIT! That's not all! The beautiful, wonderful Monica posted this excerpt on her facebook yesterday! be sure to follow her to get all of the updates!

“Will you help me?” I clear my throat, hating how hopeful and pleading I sound. I don’t beg. If shit doesn’t go my way, I let it go.

But I can’t let this go. School, football, my sister’s approval…I need it. I want it.

“I am helping you.” Chelsea smiles, her voice soft, her eyes filled with this sparkly glow that’s pretty damn mesmerizing.

“I know. You are. Can you help me more though? Like with the portfolio and stuff? Maybe I can see you more than just twice a week?”

She blinks, looking at me like I’ve lost my mind for making the suggestion. “I don’t know…”

“I’ll pay you,” I interrupt.

“Of course you’ll pay me,” she retorts, making me smile.

Okay, my tutor is a little feisty. Good. I was hoping she had a backbone. “I just have a pretty packed schedule.”

“Tutoring around the clock, huh?” I lean back in my chair, curious to hear what’s keeping her so busy.

“Well. No. Not exactly.”

“Heavy class load,” I suggest.

“Definitely that.” She nods.

“Your social calendar is jammed with upcoming events.” I don’t even know where I’m coming up with this crap. “I’m guessing you’re part of a sorority right?”

She laughs, scrunches her nose. “Not quite. And no, I’m definitely not in a sorority.”

“Steady boyfriend who never lets you out of his sight?” Okay. I threw that last one out because I had to fucking hear it. Does she have someone? Even a casual someone? I’d like to know. Why, I’m not exactly sure because I don’t have plans on ever doing anything with this girl but I’m curious.

Her cheeks turn this rosy pink as she drops her head, studying my open file with rapt attention. I know it can’t be that interesting. “No. No boyfriend.”

Relief surges through me, which is absolutely ridiculous. I should not care.

“How about you?” she asks. “Do you have a girlfriend?” Her voice shakes on the last word and I stare at her, willing her to look up but she doesn’t.

“Nope. No girlfriend.” She lifts her head when I answer and I find myself momentarily lost in her gaze. Stupid. “Why do you ask? Hoping for a chance?” I smirk at her like the asshole I am because it’s like I can’t help myself.

She grimaces. “Yeah right.”

Ouch. I bet she looks at me and sees dumb jock, which is kind of right. She probably likes brainy, skinny dudes who study all day and never make a sexual move on her. They probably make her feel safe.

I am the farthest thing from safe for her, especially when I look at her and all I can think about is what she looks like naked.
