Ever been reading a book and just can’t stop? What did you miss/forget/give up to keep reading?

Thank you, up front, to “I Am A Reader, Not A Writer” and Valerie from Stuck in Books for hosting this awesome hop!

Was it sleep?

How about a date?

Baseball game?

UPS man dropping off more books?


I remember once, I took my book to work because I HAD to finish the last chapter. HAD to. So I closed my office door at lunch and read, read, read! Who needs to eat when there is a story to finish?

Another book that sucked me right in was Crux by Julie Reece. I plowed through this book without stopping. I had to. It was all there, waiting for me. I had to know what would happen. I had to purge myself of what was happening. I had to read it.

And now, I want you to read it too!

Crux by Julie Reece
Crux by Julie Reece

She should have run. Now, she’ll have to fight.

Eighteen year old Birdie may be homeless, but she’s surviving, that is until a mysterious guy throws money in the air like a crazy game show host and she grabs some with the idea she’ll be able to buy dinner that night.

In that singular moment, unassuming Birdie becomes the girl in everyone’s viewfinder. Thugs want to kill her. Money-guy wants to recruit her. The very hot, very rich and very out of her league Grey Mathews wants to save her.

Birdie, though, wants nothing to do with any of them until she realizes fate didn’t bring them all together.

Her heritage did.

Now, with only twenty-one days left, she’s got to decide whether to follow in the footsteps of those before her or risk her life for people she’s only just met.
