Blog Tour: Excerpt + #Giveaway: Never Gonna Tell by Sarah M. Ross




NEVER GONNA TELL

Amazon ** Barnes & Noble ** iTunes ** Kobo

My name is Reagan Wilcox: high school senior by day, kick-ass investigative journalist by night. I’ve always loved observing people—especially when they think no one is paying attention.
 
I thought I was ready to cover any story. Work any angle.
 
Nothing could have prepared me for what happened that night. I wasn’t ready for what I saw. And I certainly wasn’t ready for him.
 
I always knew I’d write the headlines. Now, I just might become one.


 
 
 
 
Excerpt
 
 

Marco looks down at his hands before replying softly, “It’s been taken care of.”
“What does that mean?” I press.
He stands, his temper flaring. “It means just what I said.”
I shrink back on the couch, suddenly not so confident that he’s not here to hurt me after all.
“I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have yelled.” Marco takes a tentative step, coming to a stop in front of me. He drops down, his legs bracing mine as he grabs my hands, rubbing soothing circles between my thumb and forefinger like he did in the alley. It’s sensual and nerve-wracking at the same time, and I simultaneously fight the urge to pull him closer and push him away.
His icy blue eyes lock with mine, and I couldn’t look away if I tried. “Look, Reagan, I’m sorry. I’m sorry that you got mixed up in this whole thing. I’m sorry you had to witness what you did. I’m sorry my family is so royally screwed up that I had to play any part in it at all, even if I didn’t want to. I hate that you’re afraid of me, and that you’ll never be able to look at me like you did last week. Because, trust me, I want that more than you could know.”
He pauses, his eyes closing briefly as he leans in closer, the stubble on his chin rubbing my cheek as his lips hover at my ear. I hold my breath, anxiously awaiting whatever happens next. His eyes remain closed as he softly whispers, “I promise you, Reagan, you’re going to be okay. I won’t let anything happen to you. My family will never find out, and I won’t let them do anything to you. You have my word.”
I lean forward, allowing another brief moment of contact before he pulls away, dropping his hands from mine and lifting his own toward my face, but stopping before he touches my cheek. Just as quickly, he stands and heads for the front door. His hand is already on the knob as I squeak out, “What am I supposed to do now?”
Marco pauses, turning back to face me. “You don’t have to do anything. I’m going to take care of it. Take care of everything. Just … just don’t do anything for now. I’ll be in touch.”
I don’t get a chance to reply before he’s gone. The entire morning has been a roller coaster of emotions, and I am left wondering if I should trust my gut and go to the police, or trust Marco and keep quiet.

You will find her now with her trusty Kindle in hand and toes in the sand!
