Blog Tour: {Excerpt + Giveaway} A GRACEFUL MESS by Nacole Stayton

Title: A Graceful Mess
Author: Nacole Stayton
Publication Date: August 25, 2013


Hiding behind the anguish from my past, my coyness seeps off of me like an aroma. I have felt like a stranger in my own skin, trying to claw my way out for far too long, allowing very few people to see past my fa├žade…until my eyes met with his. I felt a sudden rush of energy all the way to my core. It jolted me in ways I never thought possible.

Never in a million years would I have expected to be in the mess I am today. It all leads back to the night Parker Porter turned my world upside down. The night his hazel eyes undressed me, peeling away the layers of the woman I tried so hard to be. He awoke desires that burned deep within me and changed me in one quick glance, leaving me vulnerable and exposed, picking up the shattered pieces of my carefully constructed life…a life I should not be living…a life I was not born into, but placed into by the state of Maine.

Parker opened a door that I am far from closing until I have answers and am able to face the life I was destined to live. I just have to decide if his love is worth the mess.

“They say be careful of the quiet ones.” –Grace

“I want to cup her breasts in that tight blue dress. She has got to know what she is doing wearing that damn thing, yet her face looks lost, like she’s scared of even being in this place. Her innocence radiates off of her like a neon sign. Horny, male eyes travel down her long, slender legs, and I notice a dude standing against the wall, eyeing her a little too hard. He has a tattoo covering the hand that is holding the neck of a beer bottle. My hand tightens around my glass as the ice cube breaks into two pieces in my mouth from the blunt force of my teeth. I’d like to break that moron’s jaw. And I might just get the chance if he keeps drooling over her like a dog. She deserves way better than that chump, and way better than Carson too, that’s for damn sure. I drink her in as she strolls towards us. I don’t know why, but I can’t force my eyes away from hers. The moment she stops checking me out and her eyes travel to my face, my breath catches in my chest.” –Parker, A Graceful Mess
