"The first time" from Michael's point of view, some news, and a very special giveaway!

Back to You  Emancipating Andie 

I am beyond excited to be able to bring to you a special exclusive from the talented Priscilla Glenn. Back to You can easily be described as one of my favorite books of 2012 and in anticipation of Emancipating Andie, Priscilla Glenn has a special Back to You treat; the first time from Michael's POV. It is so good that after reading it, I had to go back and read BTY all over again. Not only are we getting this special bonus chapter, but Priscilla is letting Tough Critic Book Reviews give away a signed paperback copy of Back to You or Emancipating Andie, readers choice. Just enter using rafflecopter below. 

A special message from Priscilla Glenn...

Okay so, my initial plan was to do a giveaway a week for the entire month of March, leading up to the release of Emancipating Andie at the end of the month. As most of you know by now, it seems the universe has other plans. *shakes fist at the sky* It won't be too much longer now - the issues are being fixed as we speak and it will definitely be out this month, hopefully sooner rather than later. The very second it goes live, you will know. (After all this build-up, I'm thinking about hiring a jet to skywrite it.)

In the meantime, I made an announcement that I would just keep giving stuff away until it's released (while biting my nails and cringing the entire time), but your responses instantly put me at ease. You guys were sweet, supportive, and incredibly understanding. 

Soooo, for being so amazing, I've decided to up the ante and give you guys not just another giveaway, but a little something extra. Something special. Something people have been asking for. 

An alternate BACK TO YOU chapter from Michael's point of view. 
*THE* alternate chapter. 
You know the one. 

This is my thank you for being so amazingly supportive of me, even before this little Andie snafu. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all my readers. You guys seriously rock. <3
So without further ado, I give you August 2003 from Del's perspective. Enjoy my loves!!

Click here for "The First Time" from Michael's POV

When Lauren Monroe first laid eyes on Michael Delaney back in high school, she had every reason to stay away from him; within minutes of their first encounter, his volatile actions confirmed his notorious reputation. But Lauren saw something in him that caused her to question his bad-boy persona, and against her better judgment, she took a chance. She had no way of knowing that the unlikely friendship they formed would become so important to her.

Or that it would end so painfully.

Eight years later, when Lauren begins her new job at Learn and Grow Day Care, Michael is the last person she expects to see. Refusing to revisit the hurt and confusion of their past, Lauren vows to keep her distance from him. But staying away from Michael proves to be more difficult than she thought, despite her lingering grief and her instincts for self-preservation.

As Lauren and Michael recall the friendship that changed them forever and the events that tore them apart, will they finally be able to heal? Or will the ghosts of Michael’s past prove to be too much to overcome?

**Will ship anywhere in the US**
