Blog Tour, Excerpt & #Giveaway: Darker Water by Lauren Stewart @ReadLaurenS

Title: Darker Water (Once and Forever, #1)
Author: Lauren Stewart
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 3, 2014

After another painful breakup, Laney Temple finally understands that love is a fairytale and sex rarely comes with a happy ending. She’s too busy for it right now anyway—she has a business to run, art to create, and candy to crush. Eventually she’ll be ready to switch from her plastic-or-silicon lover to a flesh-and-blood one. But before that happens, she needs to be sure she won’t feel any of those annoying emotions that make her heart do things it wasn’t meant to do…

Like break

Carson Bennett is completely upfront about what he wants, and it has nothing to do with Laney’s heart. Her lips? Hell yeah. Other parts of her body? You better f*cking believe it. But her heart? Nope, not even a little. Until it does…a lot. But having feelings for someone isn’t allowed. It’s the kind of thing you’re supposed to push down deep and cover up with one-night stands, sarcasm, and booze…

Like secrets

Two people want the same thing—a commitment to nothing more than great sex in a bunch of different positions. Simple. Enjoyable. A win-win. Problem is, those two people have families and fears and pain that spill into every moment of their lives, control what they do and who they are. And if either Carson or Laney can’t free themselves from the past, they’ll both be pulled under by it.

**DARKER WATER is a standalone contemporary romance (no cliffhanger)**

“If I wanted to be somewhere else with
someone else, I would be,” he said. “If and when I decide I want to, I’ll let
you know and then I’ll do it. Because I’m a selfish prick. But for right now,
the only pants I want to get into are yours, and the time I choose to devote to
the cause is up to me. The only decisions you get to make are when—note I
didn’t say ‘if’—when you say yes and
when—again notice the absence of the word ‘if’—when you want me to go away.”
I sighed. “I love your honesty. I
really do.”
“Well, I love your breasts, so we’re
even.” His smile disappeared faster than it showed up. “Oh fuck. Does that mean
we’re in love?” Amazingly, he kept a straight face until I hit him.

Lauren Stewart lives in Northern California with two of the most amazing children that the world has ever seen. She reads almost every genre so, naturally, her writing reflects that.
