Coming Undone Contest…


So I’ve got two bound galleys of my upcoming Berkley Heat release, COMING UNDONE –


Brody Brown has always been responsible for others. After his parents’ death, he gave up a promising artistic career to care for his younger brother and sister. Now, with his siblings grown, Brody owns his own business, has a nice house, makes a nice living, and for the first time in years he’s on his own.

Elise Sorenson has come to Seattle with her young daughter to find peace. After years as a world-famous ballerina—(and just as many years in a marriage-gone-bad)—she’s looking for neither love nor attention. But she finds both in the handsome, honest man who befriends her with no strings attached.

More than friends, Brody and Elise discover in each other what they need—wild, physical passion without commitment. But it’ll take a shadow from Elise’s past to make them look beyond what they need—to what they truly desire.

This is the follow up to LAID BARE and it’s Brody Brown’s story – he’s Erin’s older brother. I’ve got the first chapter posted at my website!

So, because I have so few, this contest will be for readers/bloggers who want to read the book and review it sometime between now and January 5 when the book releases. Up for it? If you are, please say so in the comments and wherever you’d post the review. I’ll choose two folks by Tuesday at noon pacific. International entries are welcomed as well! (If you don’t have a blog or don’t review, never fear, there’ll always be more contests later on!)

    I’ve been intrigued by the cover since I first saw it (I like all the covers shown in the sidebar, honestly) and I really enjoyed the summary and excerpt posted.

    I wouldn’t mind doing a review and posting it on my blog (click my name below to see my site). I’d be able to get a review up in December.

    Hey Lauren,
    I’ve been waiting for this book ever since reading Laid Bare! Would love the chance to read it early, and would gladly review it. I post all of my reviews on my blog, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and have just started on Good Reads.

    Would love to read and review one of these, please. The review would show up at Shelfari, Facebook Visual Bookshelf, GoodReads, Amazon US.

    And even if I don’t win, I’ll probably buy the book at some stage 😉

    I would love to read it but I am afraid you wouldn’t like my reviews. I’d be like, “it totally rocked” or ” “this is awesome” cause basically anything you write generates this sort of response from me. You probably would want feedback not just someone who rains buckets of praise on you! Oh and one more thing, your book covers just rock! (see I told you)Although I for some reason pictured Elsie with black hair? Good luck!

    Whew, looks like I made the deadline. Damn FB for moving their stuff around — I found this buried under a ton of other things!

    Anyhoodle, I’d LOVE to review it, especially since I loved LAID BARE so much! I’d post in all the usual places (blog, goodreads, forums, etc), and probably do a giveaway contest once the book releases to the rest of the world. :mrgreen:

    But, though I couldn’t review it early if I didn’t win, I’d still be first in line on release day and review it later.

    I’m just flat addicted to your stuff.
