VOTE for JOSH WALKER in the #NACrushTourney2014!!!

Hello everybody! I’m Molly Lee, fellow author and absolute fangirl of all things NA! I have the extreme pleasure of representing the incredible Josh Walker from FULL MEASURES by Rebecca Yarros! Now, I’m sure you are familiar with my super hot and amazingly deep book boyfriend, but just on the off chance you aren’t, I’m dying to tell you all about him and why he is the most desirable crush in NA.

It’s hard to know where to start because there are so many things I LOVE about Josh Walker. So, I suppose we’ll start on the outside and work our way in! 

Josh Walker is 6’4” of pure, sizzling, hockey-stick wielding, man. From his warm brown eyes and short cut brown hair, to his rock hard abs, he is nothing short of perfection. Add to that some sexy tribal ink slicked across his smooth skin and corded muscles, and you’ve got one mouthwatering man. 


Now lets go a little deeper. What kind of man is Josh Walker? 
He is a reckless bad boy who is finally ready to grow up and redemption for his scandalous past is high on his to-do list. But what makes him so endearing is his extreme capacity for love. He loves Ember with all his heart, with the very depths of his soul, and does anything to make her happy when she’s faced with the insurmountable grief of losing her father to war. He’ll be whatever she needs at the time she needs it, adapting to the ever-changing desires of a woman going through major life-changes. 

“Gus has my number because I’m his coach. Now you have it because I’m your whatever.”
“My whatever?”
The soft kiss he’d placed on my lips had me leaning in for
more. “Whatever you need me to be,” he whispered against my

A man that supportive is more than swoon-worthy, he’s admirable. Josh isn’t just a hot hockey player, he’s a perceptive and caring man who sees through outward facades and nails the heart of desire. He can throw you up against a wall and make your eyes roll back in your head, and yet he’s a man who can hold your hand and sit quietly while you unload buckets of grief. He’s that guy. He is the best of both worlds—an understanding man and a passionate lover, with just enough edge to let you know he’s been bad before and has overcome the past to materialize as the man he is today. Josh is complex, with many layers of emotional depth, ranging from his protective instincts to his unmatched passion and everything in between. The ideal book boyfriend, Josh is hot enough to make your thighs weak and warm enough to melt your heart.

And if the above hasn’t made you jump up and vote for him, here are a few other reasons why you should worship Walker!  

*He has an incredible amount of self-control—he knows when to pop the breaks, setting aside his own desires in order to do what is right for his lady.  “December.” He panted against my mouth, resting his forehead against mine. 

“I’m fucking desperate to carry you to my bedroom,
but I don’t think this is what you want.”

*He breaks the bad boy stereotype, showing that a reputation isn’t what defines your character. 

“Listen up. Forget whatever it is you think is ‘like me.’ I haven’t so much as touched another girl since that night in Breckenridge. And it’s not because they’re not asking. It’s because they’re not you.”

*He’s a PeeWee hockey coach! How sweet is it that he takes the time to teach a younger generation about teamwork and dedication?

*And finally, the man ALWAYS has the right words. Remember when I said he was perceptive? He’s not shy about letting you know by saying the exact thing you need to hear at the exact time you need to hear it. 

“The fire you have within you is impossible to kill. The first breath you take when you’re free of all this, it will come roaring back. That’s what is so impossibly beautiful about you.”

Are you drooling for this man yet? Josh is sexy, strong, endearing, compassionate, and undeniably supportive. He’s the man who will pull you out of any dark funk you happen to be in and make you forget how you got there in the first place. He can use his words or his incredible body to get you where you need to be and he loves with his entire being. He is the perfect man! What are you waiting for? Hurry up and vote for Josh over at NAAlley!!!! And spread the word! Have your friends vote and tweet #TeamJosh, #WalkerWorshipers, and include #NACrushTourney too!

Yet another great release this month and so that means it's time for another giveaway! Up for grabs today is 3 ecopies of ENCHANTED HERAT by Mindy Ruiz!!!

From Goodreads.com: 
Cassandra Vera never ever broke 
the rules.
She’s also had a nonexistent social life since her best friend moved to Vegas. Armed with a new set of resolutions, the promise of a hot date, and her adoptive parents out of town, seventeen-year-old Cassandra agrees to a road trip, which is the perfect way to celebrate her birthday and ring in the New Year. After all, she’s headed to Vegas, the city where secrets are meant to stay hidden. Little does Cassandra know her past is buried there as well.
Cloaked in the shadows of the glitz and gaudy lights of Vegas lies a power struggle centuries old. One wrong step and Cassandra could destroy the delicate web of secrets. Now an enemy she never knew existed is after her, and the one boy who may be the missing piece to the puzzle — and her heart— is the one person she can’t afford to trust.

My Take: 

Mindy Ruiz’s debut YA novel ENCHANTED HEART is a wonderful mixture of suspense, romance, and mythological mystery. 
Set in Las Vegas, the main character Cassandra Vera stumbles into more trouble than she thought Sin City could offer. One step into the bright lights and she unlocks a life she never knew existed. She is daughter to the Queen of Hearts--a royal in the incredibly real and powerful network of the Suits. 
As an avid poker player, the concept is what initially hooked me. Ruiz has taken something as universal as a deck of playing cards and given it a mythological makeover. Each suit has a house and together, the house of Spades, Diamonds, Hearts, and Clubs, run Vegas and protect innocent bystanders from The Shadows--cold creatures hell bent on manipulating tourists to wager more than their income in games with ultimate stakes. Add in a few God’s like Dionysus, Midas, and Poseidon, and it makes for one incredibly fresh take on the paranormal genre. 
After the concept snagged my attention, the setting reeled me in. Ruiz takes the wow-factor of Vegas and extends it, combining real life structures with mythological enhancements. Her descriptions are so vivid, readers will be tempted to seek out these fantastical additions the next time they visit Sin City. 
The chemistry between male swoon-worthy lead A.J and Cassie is electric. They have some serious odds stacked against them, but they can’t deny their attraction, and between life-threatening stakes and grief stricken emotions, the two find common ground. 
Ruiz does an amazing job of building a world where reality mixes with just enough supernatural elements to make readers believe it could really exist. Throw in characters enduring real life traumas right next to paranormal consequences and readers have a new set of heros to cheer for. Mystery, romance, grief, and high-stakes games where nothing is at it seems, and ENCHANTED HEART becomes a new series in the genre worth grabbing.
