#BOBblogoversary Day 24: Nyrae Dawn + Giveaway

Welcome to day twenty-four of my two-month long celebration event for Books Over Boys' three year anniversary! ;p If you would like to check out the first month, you can do so by clicking the link that says "click here for all things blogoversary related" underneath the B.O.B. Turns 3 tab located in my right sidebar.

Even though the official day for my blogoversary has come to pass, I'm still celebrating because the weeks following my very first blog post are still worthy of celebration, yaknow? Well, I think so, anyway. Or, I just want a reason to celebrate, so here we are!

For today's feature, I've got the sweet and lovely, Nyrae Dawn, author of so, so, so many of my all-time favorites, here to join in the celebration! Back in 2012, I discovered Dawn's What A Boy Wants and ever since then, I have read most (with the exception of three, I believe) of her books. I just can't help it and I don't think you would be able to either once you pick up a Nyrae Dawn book.

When I picked up What A Boy Wants, the one thing that totally and completely captivated me about Dawn and her amazing story-telling was how well she was able to get inside the male POV. To this day, WABW and WABN are still two of my top male POV novels! They're amazing and so, so, so good!

Fast forward to June of this year when I fell madly, truly, and deeply head over heels in crazy stupid love with Facade. I'm not the fastest reader out there so I haven't read a ton of books this year but out of the ones I did read, there are six that are my absolute top favorites of 2013. Out of those six, Facade takes the lead, no doubt about it. I was so overwhelmed and thoroughly consumed by it that thus far, no other book has been able to shake it. I love it damn hardcore!

Needless to say, Nyrae Dawn is an all-time favorite author and I am so happy she let me feature her today as a part of my blogoversary! She's the best and I heart her!

Huge kudos to the person that can tell me in the comments which scene or chapter this little snippet was taken from! ;p

So this one time when I was a teenager, I was in the car with a bunch of friends. The car was lowered, and with five of us in there, it kept scraping the ground. One of my guy friends suddenly asked, “I wonder if you can hear that outside of the car?” Of course everyone started laughing because, well who wouldn’t when someone says something like that. Then suddenly we look over and the guy had his window down with his head hanging out to see if you could actually hear it outside of the car. Long story short, I learned that not all of us were blessed with common sense.

I don’t eat bread because the texture makes me gag. Is that weird?

People who can’t drive but think they can make me crazy. You know what I’m talking about, right? Those people who cut you off or veer into your lane while looking in the mirror or something and then give you the evil eye out the window like it was your fault or something. Sigh, I can't!

About the author:

Writing has always been Nyrae Dawn's passion. Nyrae gravitates toward character-driven stories. She loves going on emotional journeys with characters whether it be reading or writing. And yes, she's a total romantic at heart and proud.

Nyrae resides in sunny Southern California with her husband (who still makes her swoon) and her two awesome kids.

When she's not with her family, you can be pretty sure you'll find her with a book in her hand or her laptop and an open document in front of her. Nyrae also writes adult romance under the name Kelley Vitollo.
