Release Day Launch + Giveaway: If You Leave by Courtney Cole

I've been counting down the days to today for so very long that in this moment, I can't believe it's here -- holy bonkers, guys! Just thinking about the level of amazing going on today is mind-blowing! I feel like my excitement is through the roof... on the inside, lol! I'm most excited for two releases today, so excited that I just want to shout about them to everyone I see. But... if I do that, someone might really admit me into the psych ward and well, we for sure don't want that.

If you've ever asked me for book recommendations or if you've ever seen my tweets, Facebook posts, and/or blog posts, you would know that Courtney Cole's Beautifully Broken series is among four of my absolute top, top, top favorite series of all time, ever!

Every time someone asks me to recommend some books, you best believe that If You Stay is in that list. If you've seen my tweets, oh my gosh, I think a few (or a lot) of my followers are annoyed by my non-stop fangirling. And well, I really just can't stop talking about this amazing series!

Today is no exception, obvi. ;p Book two in the Beautifully Broken series, If You Leave, releases today in e-book formats and Books Over Boys is one among many blogs celebrating its book birthday! If you've yet to hear about this fantastic series, read below for more info! Also, there's a really epic giveaway going on that I don't want you to miss out on, so read to the bottom, my dear booknerdigans!

About the book:

Title: If You Leave (Beautifully Broken, #2)
Author: Courtney Cole
Publisher: Forever
Release date: August 6, 2013

26-year old Gabriel Vincent is a badass hero. Or he used to be, anyway. As an ex-Army Ranger, Gabe never thought he needed anyone. But after one horrible night in Afghanistan scars him in a way that he can't get past, he needs someone who can help him heal...even if he doesn't realize it.

25-year old Madison Hill doesn't need anybody...or so she thinks. She grew up watching her parents' messed-up abusive relationship and she knows there's no way in hell that she's ever letting that happen to her.

They don't know it in the beginning, but Gabriel and Madison will soon develop a weakness: Each other.

But Gabriel's got a secret, a hidden monster that he's afraid Maddy could never overcome... And Maddy's got issues that she's afraid Gabe will never understand. They quickly realize that they need each other to be whole, but at the same time they know that they've got demons to fight.

And the problem with demons is that they never die quietly.

About the author:

Courtney Cole is a novelist who would eat mythology for breakfast if she could. She has a degree in Business, but has since discovered that corporate America is not nearly as fun to live in as fictional worlds. She loves chocolate and roller coasters and hates waiting and rude people.

Courtney lives in quiet suburbia, close to Lake Michigan, with her real-life Prince Charming, her ornery kids (there is a small chance that they get their orneriness from their mother) and a small domestic zoo.
