Author: Christina Lee
Genre: New Adult/Romance
Publishing Company: Penguin
Expected Publication Date: February 18, 2014 (ebook), October 14th, 2014 (trade paperback)
A sexy, emotional New Adult romance about a bad boy on the edge and a good girl about to lose control…
A college baseball star isn’t supposed to have skeletons in his closet. But Daniel Quinn is hiding a guilty past so dark he refuses to let anyone get close. Except there’s something about gorgeous, studious Ella Abrams that goes beyond the electric attraction between them–something that makes him want to open up.
Ella has suffered enough heartache and guilt to fill one of her psychology textbooks, but she keeps that part of herself hidden behind a bubbly exterior. Until she receives an anonymous call while working a suicide helpline and the voice on the other end touches something inside of her that she can’t ignore.
Soon Ella and Quinn’s physical connection heats up, even as their deep and revealing hotline talks intensify. But by the time Ella realizes that her seductive jock and her sensitive caller are the same guy, it might be too late to save him–or to stop herself from falling too far…

Interview with the Author
Hi! I live in the Midwest with my husband and son—my two favorite guys. I’m addicted to lip-gloss and salted caramel everything. I’m the author of The Between Breaths Series, New Adult contemporary romances including: ALL OF YOU, BEFORE YOU BREAK and WHISPER TO ME from Penguin/InterMix. I also owns my own jewelry business, called Tags-n-Stones (dot com), where I hand-stamps meaningful words or letters onto silver for my customers.
What is your favorite place to write?
I only write in my home office on my Mac desktop. My office has lots of natural light, so I can ponder plot issues while I’m staring out one of the windows.
What is the first story you remember writing?
I wrote my first book in 2008. It was a YA/NA Zombie novel believe it or not—and thankfully will never see the light of day. 🙂
Coffee or tea?
Coffee all the way. But sometimes I’ll drink a good chai tea latte.
Fun Fact about yourself most people don’t know or wouldn’t expect?
I used to live and work in NYC as a wardrobe stylist, and have been on the set of many magazine shoots as well as a couple of popular TV shows. <–Ooo, that’s cool!
If you had a Patronus what would it be?
I love the Harry Potter series and am currently reading them with my son—we’re on book five. My Patronus would either be a dog (after my dear chocolate Lab who passed away last year) or a dragonfly (love watching them buzz around on the lake in the summer).
What is your favorite childhood book and/or author?
I vividly remember reading Judy Blume books. <–me too!
What is the next book you want to write?
I’ve already written book three in this series called Whisper To Me. It releases in May and I’m currently doing copy edits for my publisher. Hopefully there will be more books in this series.
