*RELEASE BLITZ* ~The Long Way Down, by M. Sembera (includes excerpt and giveaway)

Title: The Long Way Down

Author: M. Sembera
Genera: Standalone/Women’s Fiction/Romance
Release Date: September 22

The Long Way Down is a Women’s Fiction/Romance standalone based on the character Abigail from my Rennillia Series. Highlighted by the men in her life, Abigail’s story begins with a summer friendship, that sparks a life-long game of back and forth. As she and Soman commit to making their childhood dreams come true, first loves, broken hearts, and betrayal pit them against one another. Lines are not only drawn, but crossed when the two reconcile just long enough to create a legacy that neither one can control.

 

EXCERPT: 

The moment was filled with sentiment and emotion as his firm but gentle lips moved against mine. He pulled away slightly just long enough for me to catch a glimpse of his dimple as he smiled before leaning back in for another kiss. I breathed in deeply, sliding my hands up his chest, against the sides of his face and into the back of his hair. There was a certain innocence to the warmth I felt as he held me in his arms. My mind ticked back to the anticipation I once felt, awaiting this moment. Now that it was happening, and innocence had long left us both, it wasn’t enough.

I waited for our kiss to slow down a bit before pulling away. Instantly missing the feel of being in his arms, I was delighted to see the same emotion reflecting back at me from his eyes. I gathered the sides of my white cotton nightgown in the palms of my hands before sliding it off over my head. The longing in his expression was satisfying as I stood almost completely naked in front of him. With soft smile on my face, I turned and walked back to my room.

Four friends test the bonds of love, loyalty, and friendship in the second instalment of this suspenseful new-adult saga.

I’m not a fan of reliving the past, especially mine. This isn’t exactly the beginning but it is the start of everything. Back before I knew the truth, back when we were far from innocent but completely naive. I was 15 and rebellious. My only friend was Hert and all I wanted, was to get out of my parent’s house. This is the story of our friendship, meeting Emerson, dating Jackson, losing myself and what I now believe to be the starting point of our future. -Ren

Excerpt:

Hert smiled slightly, running his fingers down my arm. As I smiled back, I stopped his hand holding it tight.

Appearing as though he couldn’t stop himself, Hert leaned over and kissed me before saying, “I want you. Why do you need to know anything else? That should be enough.”

Staring directly at him, I assured, “It would be if it was just you and me.”

Closing his eyes, Hert leaned his forehead to mine. I closed mine too, placing my hands on the sides of his face. The moment intensified with every breath I took. Knowing whatever he was dwelling on would hurt in the long run, I stayed silent. For a few moments, we were simply ourselves, until Hert pulled away.

“I’m not in a position where I can question what I’m doing. If it helps, I can try to make it as easy on you as possible,” he stated.

Narrowing my eyes at him, I asked, “You really think I feel this way because it’s hard?” as he shrugged I imparted, “I’m not going to say I don’t wish things were easy, it would be a nice change but I never really know what the truth is. It shouldn’t be that complicated to just tell me the truth.”

Taking a deep breath, Hert replied, “The truth is simple, it’s what happens after, that makes things complicated.”

At that point I knew he was never going to be the one to tell me what I wanted to know. I was going to have to figure it out all on my own.

Excerpt:

Rushing downstairs, I found Emerson in the kitchen.

“Hey,” I called, entering the room.

He turned greeting me, “Good morning.”

Intent to get it over as quick as possible, I stated, “We need to talk.”

His face turned wary as he revealed, “I heard y’all arguing last night. I think we should talk. This was a bad idea. I thought it would be good for y’all to be together, but…”

Stopping him, I said, “Wait. That’s not what I was talking about.” Sighing, I found I didn’t want to talk to him anymore and asked, “Where’s Hert?”

Emerson walked closer to me, saying, “He left. He didn’t say where he was going. Ren, if it’s not working out…”

I stopped him again, raising my voice a little this time, “Why do you keep saying that? Things are perfect. I wanted to talk to you because we decided not to wait anymore. We are going to get our marriage license today and make an appointment at the courthouse. I wanted to see if your parents could come in early. We have three days and I don’t want them to miss it.”

Appearing distressed, Emerson replied, “Why are you rushing?”

Defensive, I argued, “I’m not. I’m just tired of waiting. And just so you know whether you think it’s a good idea or not, that’s what we’re doing. I don’t know who you think you are. Plans and strategies didn’t make me love Hert. I fell in love of my own free will. Now will you call your parents and ask them to come in early or do I need to?”

Sounding miserable, Em stated, “You know that means I’m leaving sooner.”

Throwing my hands up, I shouted, “No one is making you! That’s your choice! You can still wait to leave!”

Emerson shouted back, “No, I can’t! I can’t stay here with you married to Hert!”

Sitting down at the table placing my head in my hands, I asked, “Why not?”

Opening his mouth, he paused before hanging his head, replying, “I didn’t know it would make me feel this way.”

Emerson’s reply seemed more like he was talking to himself than answering my question.

Slightly outraged, I snapped, “What way?”

Emerson, always selfless, determined to put everyone else’s needs before his own was picking now, three days before I was to be Hert’s wife, to be selfish.

“You know, Ren, I didn’t move to Spain with my parents because I needed to stay here with you. You and I, we were meant to be with each other. That is what was supposed to happen.”

Nothing more needed to be revealed. I couldn’t help being hurt. Hurt for Emerson and for myself.

I looked over at him, scolding, “And you pick right now to tell me this.”

Emotion seemed to weigh on him as he stated, “I won’t get a chance like this again, to tell. There are things you need to know.”

Livid, I replied, “No, you won’t, because in three days I’m marrying Hert but you had ten years of chances and never said a word.”

Emerson seemed regretful as he apologized, “I’m sorry.”

Trying to hold myself together, I said, “Please don’t do this to me. Not right now.”

Leaving the room, I heard him say, “I’ll call my father.”

It is then, you realize that nothing ever goes away.

anniversary banner-sale (1)

 

In order to put years of heartache and abuse behind her, Ren learned to bury the past deep down inside herself and focus on one thing; raising her daughter Sophia. As the years passed, she found peace in the daily routine of her job and becomes content with being a mom.

On the night of her daughter’s wedding, Ren takes a risk and strays from the predictable world she has set up for herself when her longtime friend Jackson rekindles a loving promise he made to her long ago.

Ren cannot keep her past buried, and the two struggle when old problems start to creep back into their lives. She cannot get her world back in order and her instinct is to shut everyone out.

In the midst of it all Ren is coerced into helping Charlotte, an adopted teenager of her close friends the Roberts’. Reluctantly agreeing, Ren finds Charlotte is in dire need of self-control and direction. Upon discovering they share a similar upbringing Ren feels she can advise Charlotte and keep her from repeating her own mistakes. Taking steps to ensure Charlotte’s recovery, her new found purpose causes a rift in the family she has come to know and love as her own.

Battling issues, both new and old, will Ren & Jacks be able to endure everything life has thrown at them or will Ren give up everything and isolate herself from the inevitable pain that will follow when all her secrets are revealed.

Blitz exclusive alternate character POV -Proposal (Jack’s)

Smiling, as I kissed the palm of her hand, I had waited for this moment between us for so long. I wanted her to say it. I needed to hear her say yes.

“Ren, you know what I want. Don’t you?”

With a confused look in her eyes she questioned, “Then why did you stop kissing me?”

How could I not love this woman?

“I love you.”

“I love you too, Jacks,”

I couldn’t stop myself from kissing her again, but the moment I did, I knew I needed more from her.

“Marry me.”

“Why don’t we talk about it in the morning?” she suggested, clearly putting off giving me a definite answer.

“You don’t want to get married?”

I watched her tense as she pretended the idea of being married again didn’t scare the hell out of her.

“I don’t see the importance of it.”

Nodding at her, I acknowledged her feelings, but I had already spent too many years being in love with a woman that wasn’t mine. There was no way I was going a step further without her agreeing to be my wife. Not because I wanted to own her, I wanted her to own me.

“I know how you feel about it but I don’t want anything from you. I love you and I want to give you everything I have. I promised you I would give you all of me and that includes my name.”

Nodding back at me, she whispered, “Okay.”

It wasn’t the ‘yes’ that I was after, but ‘okay’ was close enough.

Instantly pulling her into a kiss, I wanted her. I wanted everything she had to give. Ren was never just another girl to me. Even back when sex was the only thing on my mind, it never could have been just sex. Not with Ren. She was my everything, and always had been.

When she pulled away, grabbing the edges of my shirt, whispering, “Come with me,” I couldn’t help myself.

Sliding my hands into the back of her hair, I kissed her so hard she stumbled a little as she stood up. The second I let go, she turned and headed towards her bedroom. Wrapping my arms around her shoulders, I followed close behind.

The moment we stepped into her room, Ren hesitated.

Leaning down, I gently kissed her, asking, “Are you okay?”

“I keep expecting someone to bust in and stop us.”

“Let me go lock your front door, I’ll be right back,” I said with a laugh, recalling the day my dad walked in on us.

At the time it wasn’t funny for my dad to open the door and see Ren in her underwear sitting on my lap. Now that nothing was going to stop us this time, I was able to find humor in the situation.

When I walked back into her room and Ren was sitting on the end of her bed wearing only a bra and panties, I had to mentally talk myself out of leaping across the room onto her. This was supposed to be slow, romantic and she was killing me.

“I wanted to do that part,” I shared, hoping she would let me set the pace.

Leaning back slightly, she offered, “I can put my dress back on.”

“Don’t you dare,” I swore, deciding right then and there, I would die if that happened.

Pulling my undershirt off over my head, I couldn’t take my eyes off of her. Over the years, I had seen her in her underwear twice before this moment. She was more beautiful than I remembered her being. Her body was a contradiction to itself, just like her. She appeared toned and firm but at the same time she had these soft curves that drew all of my attention. I couldn’t wait anymore. As I stepped to her, her eyes shot straight to the wren marked on the left side of my chest. Reaching up, she smiled and placed her hand over my tattoo.

Looking into her eyes, I vowed, “My Wren,” knowing she could feel my heart pound, in anticipation, under her hand.

He was all the things she really wanted and never bothered to look for in a man. He was also the most stubborn jackass she had ever met.

She was an infuriating pain in the ass, and he’d be damned straight to hell if he had to spend even one day without her by his side.

Charlotte and Auggie never thought they would fall in love, and certainly not with each other. Looking beyond themselves to see the worth in each other, they found a love that is worth holding onto. But for two stubborn strong willed people like C&A, falling in love is only half the battle. And their road to matrimony is an uphill fight that will test them all the way to the altar.
