Cover Reveal: As You Turn Away by Molli Moran (Excerpt & Giveaway)

OKAY I am about to show you one of the CUTEST covers I have ever had the chance to share on the blog. I was already planning on reading this but after seeing this gorgeous cover I am even more ready to get my grubby hands on this book!!!

**There is also a giveaway so make sure not to miss out on that.

First lets get a little taste of the book with this little excerpt the lovely Molli has provided us with!

Flashback | Dance With Me

“Dance with me.” He cupped her waist, which wasn’t exactly where his hand belonged, but they were alone, and he’d do what he pleased. Between school, and working the farm, not to mention Quinn’s family, they barely got any time together. But what time they did spend together meant more to Jonah than he knew how to say.

“Always.” Quinn stumbled on the next step, but recovered. She stared at her feet, watching as he led.

“1-2-3, 1-2-3,” he counted. He could feel the smile tickling his lips as they found a rhythm. Quinn was adorable when she concentrated, and even more so when she wanted to get something right.

“Well, you suck at ballet but you’re pretty good at waltzing. Someday you’ll have to tell me how you learned.” Quinn squeezed his hand. “And you’re not half bad at being a boyfriend.”

Jonah couldn’t hold back the grin any longer. “Boyfriend, huh? Is that what I am? That would make you my…girlfriend.”

“I mean…if you want to be…”

She was flushed, and flustered, and completely adorable. Jonah pulled Quinn into his arms, and kissed her lips. She melted against him, and he smiled against her mouth. The response was as automatic as the sun washing away the moonlight - it was something he simply knew would happen. Anytime he kissed her, happiness overtook him.

“Yeah.” He kissed her forehead, lips lingering. “I want to be.”

SOOOOOO stinkin swoony right?! ♥ Now for the lovely cover!

Book Releases: March 4, 2014
When Quinnlan Reynolds left home at 18, she escaped her small, Georgia town and her suffocating upbringing. She started a new life as a ballerina, and tasted freedom for the first time. But four years later, her first visit home turns tragic. Reeling, Quinn tries to piece her life back together again. But doing so is easier said than done when sexy Jonah Walker saunters back into her life.

Quinn shattered Jonah’s heart once, so getting involved with her isn’t something he’s sure he’s ready to do again. He became someone he didn’t recognize when he left home. He’s spent the last years burying his pain by keeping everyone in his life at arm’s length. Now he needs to get to know his family again, and finally become who he wants to be.

But neither Quinn or Jonah can stay away from each other, especially when old feelings resurface. Something is pulling them back together, and they can’t deny their chemistry for long. One Georgia summer could change both their lives forever, if they can work through their past to have a future together. 


I don't know if it's mainly just the southern girl in me BUT OMG I adore this! The plaid shirt, the ADORABLE flower print skirt (so classy by the way), and the HAYBALES!!!! I just can't even describe how much I want to pet it and hold it and all the insane bookish things O.O 

OK done with my fangirling...shall reserve some until I read it!! 

Meet The Author:

Molli is a Southern writer who doesn't consider her day complete if she hasn't written. She loves coffee and talking fast, things she attributes to being raised by Gilmore Girls. She's a romantic at heart, and brings that to her books. When not reading or blogging, she can be found obsessing over Doctor Who, cuddling her various pets, or spending time with friends, family, or her girlfriend. 

Also Molli has provided a giveaway for a $10 gift card to either Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Make sure to leave her tons of cover love!

Thank you Molli for allowing me to be apart of this reveal ♥

  1. Crystal! Thank you so much for being part of my reveal. Your support rocks my socks! :D :D I can't wait for you to read this book. :)

  2. I can't help but giggle and squee every time you mention how much you like the cover. I love it, but I'm kinda sorta biased since I designed it lol. Molli kept telling me people would love it as much as we did, so it's an incredible feeling to see it out in the world and hear so much positive feedback about it. :-)

    Also, somehow I wasn't following your blog, so I've rectified that. ;-)

  3. Ooo! I love the cover! Not typically my taste, and I don't know if I'd normally pick it up if I saw it at the book store, but like you said, it's so CUTE!

    And I now sort of want to read this book! It sounds like NA, but the protagonist is a ballerina! Instant interest for me, to be honest. ;) Awesome reveal, and great job with the cover, Marie!

  4. I love how "Southern" the cover is too. It always warms my heart when I see warm, down home stuff like that. I love it! Great Job on this post!

  5. I just about died just looking at this cover! And then that excerpt? Oh. My. GOODNESS. Yeah, I swooned--everything about this book is adorable and I can't even contain the excitement that keeps building inside me just thinking about it . . . AH! The cover, the story, this post--all around FANTASTIC job, ladies :)


I would love to hear from you! I try to always comment back :)
