CHASTITY FALLS SERIES
ONE YEAR PUBLIVERSARY TOUR
To celebrate one year since Loyalty and Lies (Book #1 in the Chastity Falls Series) we’re taking the series on tour across over 65 blogs.
Chastity Falls Academy is supposed to be her fresh start; her salvation. And when Ana meets mysterious Jackson, she begins to think it is. She hasn’t smiled in almost sixteen months; not since the night her life changed forever, and despite her guilt…her loyalty, Ana can’t deny that Jackson is breathing life back into her. With Jackson by her side, Ana wants to believe she can heal and move on. But she isn’t the only one living a lie, and the small private Academy has secrets of its own. All is not what it seems, and Ana is about to find herself in a tangled web of lies; fighting for survival, again.
Loyalties will be tested, lies will be told.
Salvation will be earned, secrets will be unveiled.
Tribulations will be overcome, truths will be revealed.
… Welcome to Chastity Falls.
“Don’t. Don’t call me that, Ana. Not you. I can’t stand hearing you calling me that.”
I looked up at him. “Why? Why can’t you stand me calling you that? Why does it matter what I think?”
Jackson dropped to the floor in front of me, almost at my eye level. His hand hovered over my thigh, but he withdrew it and shoved it into his pocket. “Because you are different, Ana Parry. You make me believe things can be different.”
His downcast eyes told me all that I needed to know, but I braced myself for the words. “They can’t. Braiden noticed. Noticed something between us in the cafeteria. I have to throw him off the scent. If he finds out about you, about us, things could turn to shit very quickly. For both of us. It’s safer for you this way.”
I raised my chin slightly, almost in defiance. “And I don’t get any say?”
With one swift movement, Jackson clasped his hand around the back of my neck and pulled me down to him. His face nuzzled into my neck and I felt him breathe me in, and then he murmured, “It’s got to be this way. I fucking hate it, but it’s the only way. I’m sorry. Please don’t hate me.”
“Jackson I- I’m just so confu-”
His lips came down on mine, and I grabbed onto him as if he was my air. As if I needed him to survive. Jackson sucked my bottom lip into his mouth and a soft moan escaped my lips as my body arched into him and my legs wrapped tightly around his waist. I needed to be closer, and our tongues danced and dueled, causing our breathing to become rapid. This wasn’t like the kiss in the closet—no, this was different. It was full of need and desperation… it was goodbye.
I couldn’t be the one to break away. I didn’t want it to end. I didn’t want this to be it. I had just found him and now he was leaving me. But all too soon, Jackson started to untangle my legs from his waist and pulled away, placing one last chaste kiss on my lips, leaving me in a crumpled mess on the floor.
“Ana, we have to keep our distance. You can’t approach me or talk to me. And I will ignore you. You won’t exist to me. I’m so sorry that I dragged you into this shit storm.” His fingers brushed over my jaw as he stared down at me with such reverence that my insides coiled. “I know you still have questions, but I can’t give you answers. Ana Parry…” He drew in a deep breath, regret shining in his eyes. “…in another life I would have stolen your heart and never returned it.”
And just like that, Jackson was gone and my heart broke with realization…
He already had.
This series was near perfect for me! It is everything I love about the New Adult Genre! The angst, the growth, the drama. Its all so well written. This story is intricate as well. You will be glad you have all 3 books at one time-I read them as they released and had to WAIT! So not cool! Both Ana and Jackson are characters you will root for and they will stick with you. You will also feel intense hatred for some characters (I’m looking at you, Briony). You will feel so much while reading this series. Its one of those books that you will tell others about when they ask for recommendations! You also have a bit of a sports theme as well since football plays a part in the series. Throw in a mob twist and you have a great romantic suspense. Just go grab all three books and thank me later! Seriously, do it now!
During the release of Tribulation and Truths, I got to chat with Ana and Jackson! You can read the interview with the Chastity Falls pair!
