I got my first CHARADE swag and I looooove it!!!! Postcards. The color is the front and the black and white the back.

And since the swag is sooo very pretty I'm thinking it calls for a contest.

All you have to do is leave me a comment. If you've read Charade, I'd love for you to share your favorite quote in the comments. If you haven't read it, or would rather share a quote from something else, go for it. I just like book quotes :) Don't forget your email too. I'll draw a winner at random on Monday.

Good luck!

  1. WOOHOO!!! Swag!!! That's awesome!!! I haven't read Charade yet, but that's because I'm on a little bit of a book ban. Not really, but I want this semester to end before I buy/read any more books.

    But I found quotes on Goodreads!!! Here's one that I liked:

    “Don’t cry, Princess. You know what they say. You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you meet your prince.”

    Thanks for the chance to win!


  2. "I'm fucking good at this boyfriend shit. Who would have thought?"

    L.O.V.E.D. it!!!

  3. Wooopsy...

  4. You have such great giveaways, Nyrae!

    Thank you for the opportunity.

    One of my favourite quotes is from Effortless by S. C. Stephens.

    “But, if for some reason we're not closer, if something has gotten between us, please, I'm begging you…don't give up on me. Stay. Stay with me. Work it out with me. Just don't leave me…please.”

    My e-mail address is

    Thanks again:-)

  5. “I thought this was a game,” I remind him.
    “Not anymore and you know it. Everything else in my life is all fucked up. This is the only thing that’s real.”

    Everytime he calls her Tiny Dancer! I love this book!!

  6. "You don't cry, Tiny Dancer."..... "Just know that you can. I won't tell. I might not be able to do much for you, but I'll hold your secrets."
    Amazing Love story! I would love to see more about them.

  7. I haven't read Charade yet but I have it in the TBR. I have read Freeing Carter, Measuring up, What a Boy Wants, What a Boy Needs, and loved them all! I am definitely in line for anything new from you. I also have Dizzy in TBR ;)
    My Quote is:

    "Here was my epicness, because despite how things turned out, I wouldn't be anywhere else. I wouldn't want anyone else to take care of her. To watch her sleep."
    Jody D.

  8. "I'm a prick half the time, but you make me better. You make me happy. I don't want to lose you. I Love You. I don't want to lose you."
    " I love you too. I'm not going anywhere. We make each other better."

    I loved everything about this book it is in my Favs and will re read this many times already have.. :)

  9. "My name is Cheyenne. Use it." She's great.

  11. LOVE this book...too many quotes to choose from but..."I'm fucking good at this boyfriend shit!!!"...hehehe...makes me laugh and smile :)

    1. my email addy is the your books girl!!! :)

  12. Those are beautiful, Nyrae! I can just picture Colt & Chey in those moments.

    I have soooo many favorite quotes. I probably highlighted 30 passages.

    Here's a funny: "I'm f*cking good at this boyfriend sh*t. Who would have thought?"

    Break my heart: "As long as he's by her side I'll be by his. Longer even. "

    Swoon/happy moment: "We may have been brought together because of a stupid ass fm game. Or because we're both screwed up, or needed to change, but we got somewhere important and that's the only thing that counts. I'd play that game over again to be laying here."

    Oh, so looking at quotes has me crying again. Now you owe me three boxes of tissues.

    Congrats on your beautiful book, my friend.

  13. Favorite Charade quote; "I'm kind of impossible not to think about." I laugh because it's true and she's probably the only woman I know who would have the balls to say it.

    Another quote I love right now, from Mile High by R.K. Lilley, "... I saw red. Red as in crimson. Crimson as in blood. Blood as in I was going to make the bitch bleed."

    Love Charade, and all the others. Can't wait to read more from you in the future!


  14. "This is a game. Our game. One that I asked for, but with each day it feels more real. More real than anything ever has and I'm not sure how I feel about that. What to do. I shouldn't fall for this guy. He's got so much on his plate and he's not the kind of guy to really fall for someone. ~~ Chey

    LOVED this book so much! Thanks for the giveaway :)


  15. Leaning forward I kiss the top of her head. I feel her shaking as she cries, but no sounds come out. She’s locked up so tight and I both respect her for protecting herself and want to set her free at the same time. “It’s okay. We’re good.”               “Home?” Adrian says from the driver’s seat.               “Yeah.”               He doesn’t ask what’s up and I don’t offer, mostly because I have no fucking clue. Just let him drive while she cries and I kiss her head like it’s a real fucking thing to do.

    - this was probably my undoing! This scene showed how vulnerable Cheyenne can be and how Colt can protect her from bad things and be like a fortress securing her from the fears that eat her up inside. Later on I realized that Chey is exactly the same thing to him - home. The safest place one can imagine.

    I seriously freaking loved this book like no other and I want to read Adrian so bad. No joke! I miss these characters and a 4th re-read is in order I believe:)

  17. I absolutely Loved this book. It was emotionally charged and amazing. Thank you so much for such a wonderful book. Colt is so going to be my book BF soon. ;)

  18. I haven't read it yet, but the cover is gorgeous and for that alone peeked my interest to read the blurb and then add to my wishlist:) Here's hoping Santa will buy it for me!

  19. I loved this book; the chemistry between Chey and Colt is amazing to watch. Just a few of my favorite quotes from this book are:

    “This isn't a fucking game anymore. No charades here. I don’t know exactly what to call it, but whatever it is, it’s ours. I’m going to latch onto it. And never let go.”

    “I’m tired of running … This is the only thing that’s real. Don’t run from me, Tiny Dancer.”

    “Words are so ridiculous sometimes. They don't really mean anything, but they're all I have.”

    Thanks so much for the opportunity for this contest!

  20. Very pretty post card! I absolutely loved Charade, the characters, and growth that happens to them. I'm a total bad-boy (but sweet on the inside!) fan!

    "She's optimistic. The cup is half full, sunshine and flowers and I try to act like I agree, but really I'm pissed someone dumped out half of my drink."

    Adore that part in the book, laughed my butt off for quite awhile!

  21. Love ya Nyrae <3

    "It's that stupid girl, heart-pounding, hearts-floating-by-my-head thing. Where the guy who fights so hard to keep the distance, does something so small, it's huge. I can't help but let it inside. Let it mean something."


    "We've had enough sadness to last a fucking lifetime. From now on, we should only get sunshine."

    This book moved me. Really changed me. I laughed, cheered and sobbed. Boy did I cry. I'll never forget.


  22. "Everything’s not always black and white, Princess. Sometimes we have to do shit because there’s not another choice. Maybe you should think about that before you snub your nose at me."


  23. OMG! Just finished Charade. It made me want to ball my eyes out. Awesome story and writing! Is this going to become a series????
