Girl of Mine by Taylor Dean: A PACKED post of Review, $100 Giveaway, Book Trailer and Author Inspiration!

Taylor Dean's newest book is now available!


The year is 2003 and Captain Lucas Graham is at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, about to be deployed to Iraq. A few weeks ago, he broke his engagement with Jillian Barrett, leaving her stunned and heartbroken.

Knowing he can’t leave for war without putting his affairs in order, Luke obtains a four day pass with only one goal in mind: explain his life story to his former fiancĂ©e. 

The problem: Jill is now engaged to another man. 

But Luke isn’t giving up. He only has four days to gain an audience with Jill, even if he has to resort to drastic measures to do so.

And he will . . .

I was so, so excited to read this book. It's no secret that I love Taylor Dean's books. She really knows how to write a story that pulls you in and engages you emotionally as a reader. Taylor is one of the authors that I stalk (in the best possible way), waiting for an announcement of a new book.
This book had a few surprise turns and stories within stories.  It took awhile for the whole picture to come together as pieces kept falling into place one at a time.  I really liked it.  I just couldn't put it down.

I loved both Jill and Luke.  They were characters with real, human emotions.  It was easy to relate to them and it was easy to like them.  I went on an emotional journey with them both and came out on the other side happy and satisfied.  

Content:  Clean!  Yipee!

The song that inspired me while writing GIRL OF MINE:
(Watch until the end. There's a surprise!)

A interesting tidbit about GIRL OF MINE:
My dad always worried about the cost of the electricity bill. If he walked past my bedroom and noticed that my light had been left on, he would turn it off and holler,
"That's okay, Taylor, I got your light."
It became a bit of a joke in our household. My siblings and I loved to try and catch my dad leaving on a light, just so we could say,
"That's okay, Dad, I got your light."
Now that I'm an adult with my own family, the term takes on new meaning.
The message behind it has worked its way into my new novel, Girl of Mine.
My father brought me into this world, he cared for me, and he taught me well. He gave me my "light," my life.
He nourished my "light" and helped me become the person I am today.
So, Dad, thanks for getting my light.
I'll always be grateful.
