Eeeep!!! I am SO excited about this upcoming book. I fell in love with her characters in her debut last year, Seeds of Hate, and have been eagerly anticipating this release. Melissa Perea is a breath of fresh air and her words are literary genius!

Excerpt

“Selah, please. Please let me make love to you. It’s our wedding night.”

I sit at the foot of the bed—our bed—my cream wedding dress draping over the edge like a waterfall made of snow. 
“I can’t. I need more time. I need forever.”

My husband kneels at my feet and nuzzles his face into my lap, drawing his arms around me, he holds me. 
“I have given you forever. The only forever I have.”

I blanch at his words. It’s truth weighing me down. My body slides alongside the foot of the bed and puddles onto the floor. My husband follows, shifting so that he now holds me instead of I, him. 
“But, but what if—I can’t finish that if. I won’t.”

He lifts my chin and holds my eyes. I blink at the certainty I see in his, not mirroring the fear I know lives in my own. 
“You are not going to kill me, Sey. I promise.”
His fingers clench the edge of my jaw— not painful, but no longer delicate. 

“How can you be so certain?”

“Because. Because I was already dead before you found me.”

About Melissa Perea

Melissa is completely and utterly ordinary. She was born, raised and currently resides in sunny California. If she told you her life story nothing would really stand out. So she’s gonna keep it simple…

“I get very cranky when I am tired. If getting fat wasn’t a side effect, I would eat freshly baked cookies and milk every day for breakfast. Currently–I have two kids, one husband and one dog. I would like to add more to the kids and possibly the dogs, but definitely keeping the husband to one. I am obsessed with literature. If for some random reason you stumbled upon my high school yearbook you would find a picture of me under “Class Clown”. I have a college degree, but instead of earning dollar bills with my educated mind, I spend my days playing with my offspring. My life is super fun.”

So, what did you think? :-)
