Book Tour & Giveaway: Ex-Factor/Unbreakable by Elisa Dane

Ex Factor
Release Date: 04/22/14

Summary from Goodreads:
Nevaeh Evan’s life is uprooted after her father’s death, when she moves in with her aunt and cousin, Livvie. Her plan to lay low at her new high school isn’t working. Her friend’s jerky boyfriend keeps asking her out, the guy she likes treats her like garbage, and the thought of tumbling again makes her want to hurl.

So when her aunt pushes her into joining the elite X-FACTOR cheer leading squad, Navaeh goes along with it.

But Nev feels she doesn’t deserve to be happy. Not after what happened the night her father died.

Bodie Scott knows about grief all too well. Critically injured in an alcohol related accident the year before, Bodie struggles with the fact that he’ll never play football again, and he’s so far behind in credits he can’t see straight. That is, until he meets Nev. Haunted by their bloody pasts and wary of a shared future, Nev and Bodie turn to one another for comfort and support, and realize they’re not so alone after all. And when the party scene at school threatens the life of a loved one, the two stop at nothing to keep the past from repeating itself.

I didn’t ponder the lyrics for long, focusing on the sign ahead marked Valley Way. I knew from Bodie’s text this was my turn, and I pressed my foot against the brakes as I made my way onto the narrow, dirt-lined road.

Large trees—willows, I thought—lined each side of the road, creating a lush, shaded canopy that was altogether beautiful. The narrow road continued on for quite a ways, heading straight for the base of the outlining hills.

My throat constricted as I passed a particularly large willow on the left with aspattering of flowers and rest in peace signs that had faded and withered from the elements.

So that was where it had happened. That’s where Bodie had gotten hurt, where his sister and his friend had lost their lives.

Bile coated the back of my tongue. Bitterness and despair over his plight, over the tragic plight of my father bubbled up from within. How on earth did Bodie do it? How did he drive past the scene of the accident every day and stay sane? I’d yet to see the place where my father had lost his life and was certain I’d never have the strength to come within a hundred yards of it.

A sensation I hadn’t felt in quite some time stirred within my chest, drowning out the emptiness and loss that sank its fingers into me, bone deep. Admiration. Bodie lived with a daily reminder of his mistake, and unlike me, who fell apart at the mere mention of anything bad, Bodie held himself together, went about his daily life, and continued living. That kind of strength was remarkable.

Unbreakable
Release Date: 06/10/14

Summary from Goodreads:
Perception is everything to sixteen-year-old Olivia Brown. With her freakishly hot boyfriend, volunteer work at the local animal shelter, successful beauty channel on YouTube, and well-earned spot on X Factor Cheer's elite level five Diamond Girl team, Livvie's the girl every other girl wants to be. At least, that's the illusion she's aiming for.

But Livvie's seemingly perfect life is anything but. Lying about the bruises her boyfriend gives her, and cowering beneath his raging temper becomes a regular way of life until she unwittingly witnesses her drunken neighbor beating his step-son, the town bad boy, Reid Tate.

For Reid, vulnerability is the enemy. Opening up, and letting people in gives them the power to disappoint. Growing up with a co-dependent mother and an abusive alcoholic father, Reid has endured all the disappointment he can stomach.

But when his pretty, do-good neighbor witnesses his step-dad beat him to within an inch of his life, and not only call the cops, but keeps quiet at school about what she saw, Reid wonders if maybe, just maybe, he's found someone he can finally trust.
