Blog Tour & Giveaway: A Graceful Mess

Title: A Graceful Mess
Author: Nacole Stayton
Publication Date: August 25, 2013

Summary: Hiding behind the anguish from my past, my coyness seeps off of me like an aroma. I have felt like a stranger in my own skin, trying to claw my way out for far too long, allowing very few people to see past my fa├žade…until my eyes met with his. I felt a sudden rush of energy all the way to my core. It jolted me in ways I never thought possible.

Never in a million years would I have expected to be in the mess I am today. It all leads back to the night Parker Porter turned my world upside down. The night his hazel eyes undressed me, peeling away the layers of the woman I tried so hard to be. He awoke desires that burned deep within me and changed me in one quick glance, leaving me vulnerable and exposed, picking up the shattered pieces of my carefully constructed life…a life I should not be living…a life I was not born into, but placed into by the state of Maine.

Parker opened a door that I am far from closing until I have answers and am able to face the life I was destined to live. I just have to decide if his love is worth the mess.

“They say be careful of the quiet ones.” –Grace

“I am glad we came to that conclusion, because trust me, this dress was built for your body, honey. All the guys are going to be drooling over you tonight. I might even be outshone.” She winks as she bends to pick up my towel and tosses it in the air in my direction. After I dry off I apply a small amount of coconut-scented lotion all over my body. As my hands glide across my torso my fingers instantly find the small two-inch scar on my waist. The thought of having a daily reminder of him when I look in the mirror makes me sick. I have used every kind of cream they sell to try and get it to fade, but nothing ever works. It’s there, sticking out like a sore thumb, a reminder of that night.” – Grace, A Graceful Mess
