Grant Me

by Em Perna

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

BookCover_GrantMe

Neva Mathews and Jason Grant came from seemingly different worlds. She is a tattooed, single mother of one and he is a hardboiled detective who has sworn off on relationships. But when they cross paths, attraction becomes inevitable and the two find themselves falling hopelessly and dangerously in love…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt:

The black mask is too close to my face.  At least I think it’s a mask.  Could be any number of things blocking my sight. But it’s affecting my equilibrium, as well as my ability to breathe.  I can’t get air in fast enough through the fabric, causing panic to claw its way up my throat.  I need to calm down.  Slow breath in, slow puff out.  Don’t let the panic get to you.  . I turn my head to the left, hoping that’ll allow more air to sneak in the sliver by my chin. Oh, that helped. Relaxing my shoulders I try and piece things together. Nothing so far.  Blank.  Empty memories.  The car I’m riding in turns, and my body, that had been rocking, is almost thrown off the narrow seat. It takes all the strength I have left to keep me from tumbling off. My back settles once we’ve completed the turn. Where are we? And more importantly, where are we going?  My body aches, like it was hit by something.  What am I missing?

I can just make out the tiny bit of light at the bottom of my mask, but not enough to see what’s just beyond it. Focus.  Focus on that light.  I try to keep my lids from closing, yet they are heavy, and itching, begging me to let them seal shut. Was I drugged? I close my eyes, and the tiny bit of light is forgotten.

~Neva

 

REVIEW:

The book starts out with a bang and doesn’t disappoint with the rest of the pages. Neva is self-depreciating, yet likeable. Jason makes a strong, hard to resist hero, and the cast of supporting characters kept me turning the pages. The author’s descriptions are visual and work really well with building the suspenseful scenes. Overall, a very enjoying read.

    1. Glad to have Em on my blog 🙂

  1. How important are names to you in your books? Do you choose the names based on liking the way it sounds or the meaning? Do you have any name choosing resources you recommend?

    1. Names are very important to me when trying to visualize my characters. For ‘Grant me’, the only name that I looked up the meaning to was Neva. It means snow, and I wanted a name that went with her characteristics. (Hair color, skin, and even her eyes are a very light shade of blue) The only problem I had was figuring out the last names. I wanted to last name to fit their heritage, and I was worried that there would already be a ‘Jason Grant’ out in the world and think I was stealing his name. lol
      And google was my friend for picking out names. :p There are tons of sites that help choose the perfect name. I hope this helped some. Thanks for asking.

      1. Yes, sometimes names come easily and at other times my mind is a blank 🙂
        I did find though that when I tried to later change a characters name she didn’t approve and made me change it back! lol

      1. I actually googled ‘baby names’. (Which is funny as there are no babies in my book. Ha!) And then I scrolled through the names until I found one that called out to me. I already had Jason’s name picked before I started writing, but the others I googled. 🙂
