About The Author:
Lucy D. Briand lives in Ottawa, Canada with her comic book fanatic husband and her nonchalant Siamese cat.
By day she works full time as a public servant for the Government of Canada, but by night her creative mind takes over and conjures up young adult gear-head romance stories with supernatural twists.
When not working, reading, writing, or watching way too much TV, Lucy likes to cosplay, attend ComicCons, go on road trips to Walt Disney World, and play ridiculous amounts of board games. She’s a geek to the core but is also a huge NASCAR Cup fan.
Lucy is represented by Brittany Booker Carter of The Booker Albert Literary Agency.
About The Book:
The ability to magnetize and manipulate metal with the flick of her wrist makes seventeen-year-old Lexi Adams a crack mechanic, but it’s a disaster in the making when her stepdad trades her skills to NASCAR team owner Dean Grant for an entire season’s worth of sponsorship ads.
Now Lexi has no other choice but to suck it up and hope she can keep her magnetic impulses under control—that is, until she runs into NASCAR’s hot new rookie, Colton Tayler.
When Carl Stacy, the ruthless team owner of the defending Cup Champion, discovers Lexi’s secret and plots to use it to ruin Dean’s race team for good, Lexi must either expose her ability to save Colton, risking Dean’s career and her own freedom in the process, or watch the only guy she’s ever fallen for race to his death.
My top favorite books that I want to share with you today are not classics or all major award winning books, but they are books that changed my life in small impactful ways.
Strange things begin to happen when Ariel, Doug, and Shannon are stranded in a ski lodge during a snow storm.
This was the first book I begged my mom to buy me when I was still in grade school. This book started it all for me. My love of reading. After this I went on to read almost every book in the series, devouring them one by one, some under my blankets at night with a flashlight so I could get just one more chapter in before mom caught me reading late into the night again.
This was my first attempt at a full length adult novel. I was too young to understand most of what was going on but I got really caught up in the story and could not put it down. This began my fascination with romance novels and that led me to discovering many more great books and great authors like Allison Brennan and Karin Slaughter.
About three things I was absolutely positive.
First, Edward was a vampire.
Second, there was a part of him—and I didn’t know how dominant that part might be—that thirsted for my blood.
And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
This book, as corny as many may think, was the book that got me back into reading after I had forgotten the joy it brought me. It’s how I discovered the YA genre and it motivated me to read more and eventually write my own.
I would not be where I am today without these books and their authors. They have influenced my life in many ways. I hold these experiences and these journeys close to my heart and I can only hope that my books or my stories do the same for someone else someday.
