The time it was about Afterparty

Posted October 9, 2014 by Stacee in Blog Tours and Hops, Book Promo, Giveaways / 6 Comments

When Alethea invited me to be part of the blog tour for Afterparty, I was pretty excited.  I haven’t had a chance to get my greedy hands on a copy of this book yet, but I’m super intrigued by the premise.


There’s all sorts of stuff and two {that’s right, TWO!} giveaways down there, but before we get to that, let’s check out the book.

afterparty_hires_smallEmma is tired of being good. Always the dutiful daughter to an overprotective father, she is the antithesis of her mother — whose name her dad won’t even say out loud. That’s why meeting Siobhan is the best thing that ever happened to her…and the most dangerous. Because Siobhan is fun and alluring and experienced and lives on the edge. In other words, she’s everything Emma is not.

And it may be more than Emma can handle.

Because as intoxicating as her secret life may be, when Emma begins to make her own decisions, Siobhan starts to unravel. It’s more than just Dylan, the boy who comes between them. Their high-stakes pacts are spinning out of control. Elaborate lies become second nature. Loyalties and boundaries are blurred. And it all comes to a head at the infamous Afterparty, where debauchery rages and an intense, inescapable confrontation ends in a plummet from the rooftop…

This explosive, sexy, and harrowing follow-up to Ann Redisch Stampler’s spectacular teen debut, Where It Began, reveals how those who know us best can hurt us most.

Afterparty is out now. You can get it at IndieBound, Book Depository, Barnes & Noble, or Amazon.

  1. Good, I am always the good girl. I had a phase in college where I wanted to be “bad” (my roommate even sang that silly song to me all the time) but I didn’t really want to be BAD, I just wanted to stop being so uptight. I think I accomplished that, while still being “good” ;)
