For seventeen-year-old serial womanizer Fletch Colson, life is a game and if he plays by the rules, he’ll win it all: his dream college, his parents’ money, and a hot (if a little vapid) girl on his arm. Really, it couldn’t be easier. All he has to do is get good grades, live a privileged boarding school life, and try not to mess up too much.
However, when he accepts the seemingly impossible bet to change his ways and be “just friends” with smart, beautiful, tempting Ellie Jacobs – a girl who seems hell bent on confusing him – Fletch’s whole world is turned upside down.
Suddenly, what seemed simple and clear, no longer feels right and Fletch must decide if winning it all is worth losing a piece of himself.
CRUSHED is a New Adult/Upper YA book. It has profanity and sexual situations, and is intended for ages 16+.
I reviewed this last year HERE! Check out my review!
Because I am really interested in the writing process, I asked Dawn how she came up with the title “Crushed”. Because if you read the acknowledgments of the book, it isn’t supposed to be titled “Crushed”. So Dawn, how did you decided Fletch’s story should be entitled “Crushed”? Take it away, Dawn!
Ooooohhh, so that’s why! Thank you Dawn for this very insightful post on the titling process. We finally see how authors do it!

Bad Boy Rehab Hop
Hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and The Book Hookup
We tried giving up Bad Boys for our New Year’s Resolution…..
but try to make me go to rehab and I said no no no.
Bad Boy (n.) person
1. A guy who has many characteristics of a naughty, naughty boy.
OMG let the drooling begin.
2. A heartbreaker with a five o’clock shadow.
3. Independent and willful. Does what he wants when he wants. Never follow trends, they follow him.
4. Someone that’s not looking for trouble, but there’s a serious sense of danger about him.
We love danger!
Usable Note: A bad boy is a gorgeous man with MANY layers and is INSANELY irresistible to women.
*raises hands*… YES PLEASE!
Then, Fletch is truly a bad boy. *yummy*
For this giveaway, Dawn and I were supposed to give away a paperback of Crushed. But it’s not available yet and might not be until the end of the month soooooo Dawn is giving away an ebook of Crushed and paperbacks of both books 1 and 2 in her The Sensitives Trilogy, Larkstorm AND Nightingale. The Sensitives Trilogy features a good boy and then Crushed has a bad boy. Who says you can’t have both?
So the giveaway is OPEN INTERNATIONALLY and ends on January 19, 2012 12AM Philippine Time. ONE WINNER will get them all! May the odds be ever in your favor! Good luck!
Thank you Dawn for sponsoring this giveaway!
