Guest post & Giveaway - Christina Lee, author of Whisper To Me

Whisper To Me
Christina Lee

A hot and consuming New Adult romance about a wayward musician and the one girl who keeps him grounded…

At college, Rachel has a reputation for being a sarcastic flirt with a thing for star athletes. No one at school knows that she’d had her heart ripped to shreds by her high school sweetheart, who’d driven them both off the side of the road on a borrowed motorcycle, and then abandoned her. No one knows the real Rachel Mattson—except one person…

Ever since he helped nurse his sister’s feisty best friend back to health, pierced bass player Kai Nakos has been head over heels in love. But the supposed bad boy can’t risk letting Rachel know the truth—especially now that the two of them are back in their hometown for the summer, together for the first time since the months following that fateful night. Never mind that Rachel’s ex is back, groveling for her forgiveness.

Shaken by her ex’s return, Rachel finds herself turning to the one guy she knows she can trust. Kai is willing to hide his feelings for her, just to have Rachel touch him again. After all, this is only a temporary fling. Until it becomes something more. But maybe it had been more all along.

Happy Thursday!  So if one thing is obvious about me and my reading habits, I love New Adult.  I don't know what it is, I just can't get enough of them!  Whisper To Me sounds great, right?  Check out this guest post from author Christina Lee, and tell me what you think!  Thanks for checking it out!

A Character Sketch -- Who Are Rachel and Kai in WHISPER TO ME
by Christina Lee

WHISPER TO ME is Rachel’s book in the Between Breaths series. She’s the friend that many of my readers love to hate, but also the character most readers asked for a story about.
Three years earlier she suffered a traumatic brain injury and cheated death. She returns home for the summer at the same time her childhood friend, Kai, returns from studying abroad in Amsterdam.
Kai is Native American, plays the upright bass, and has secretly been in love with Rachel since he helped nursed her back to health. This book is filled with loads of tension, angst, and the thrill of a forbidden relationship. It’s probably the sexiest of my first three books.
I’ve been asked by many readers whether I have an idea in my head for Rachel and Kai. And my answer to that is yes! With every book I write, YES! I’m sure most authors would have the same answer.
Kai is actually loosely based off of an ex-boyfriend of mine from loooong ago. He’s part Native American, part Dutch and one hundred percent hot, if I do say so myself. He had long dark hair, medium brown skin, and midnight blue eyes.
Having said that, it’s hard to find Native American models/book boyfriends. This photo would be one of the closest I’ve gotten to the picture of Kai in my head. It’s model Donny Lewis and he’s all kinds of swoon.




Rachel was easier, as would be the case with gorgeous eastern European females. She has dark hair that she’s let grow out since her accident. She reminds me of an Ashley Greene.

Rachel’s background story is closely related to one experienced by someone very dear to me. She is a beautiful and brave soul and I dedicated the book to her.



Mother, wife, reader, dreamer. Christina lives in the Midwest with her husband and son--her two favorite guys. She's addicted to lip gloss, salted caramel everything, and believes in true love and kissing, so writing romance novels has become a dream job.
