Treasure Hunt/Book Buzzin'

Possession by Elena Johnson is available today! It's an excited book about being in control or controlled that is sure to be just as thrilling as the author herself. I'll have the back cover blurb in a moment.

First, I'm participating in a Bloghop hosted by Nicole Giles, Ali Cross and Windy Aphayrath. The first incident I thought of where I broke the rules was when I took a girlfriend to a guy's house that she had a crush on (I really liked him too, but she didn't know that). We stayed out WAY past curfew. So late I ended up with a police escort home. *Sigh* the things we did for guys we liked. Anyway, here's the back cover blurb for Possession:

Vi knows the Rule: Girls don't walk with boys, and they never even think about kissing them. But no one makes Vi want to break the Rules more than Zenn...and since the Thinkers have chosen him as Vi's future match, how much trouble can one kiss cause? The Thinkers may have brainwashed the rest of the population, but Vi is determined to think for herself.

But the Thinkers are unusually persuasive, and they're set on convincing Vi to become one of them...starting by brainwashing Zenn. Vi can't leave Zenn in the Thinkers' hands, but she's wary of joining the rebellion, especially since that means teaming up with Jag. Jag is egotistical, charismatic, and dangerous--everything Zenn's not. Vi can't quite trust Jag and can't quite resist him, but she also can't give up on Zenn.

This is a game of control or be controlled. And Vi has no choice but to play.

  1. Okay, seriously? You got a police escort home and it only merits ONE SENTENCE? I have GOT to hear this story in full.

    Thanks for joining the blog hop.

  2. Details. Please. Or is this your cliffhanger and we get the rest of the story later? If that's so ... seriously, dude, I'm waiting. :)

  3. I'll have to do the rest of the story when I don't have a baby trying to eat my computer. As you can see it's taken me this long to get back on. :)
