Exception - Release Blitz

Book Blitz

Exception by Patty Maximini 
Publication date: November 2nd 2013
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


When all hope for moving on from a life filled with pain and abuse was gone, Emily Watson closed herself off to the world, packed her bags, and moved across the country in search of a new life. What she found was a career she adored and friends she loved. It wasn’t a full and complete life, but it was definitely better than what she knew before.

When all hope for being loved and accepted for who he was instead of what he had was gone, Taylor Carter decided that trusting people outside of his family wasn’t really smart and would only lead to disappointment. With his world turned upside down, his life became about his work, and every new relationship was meaningless and superficial. He was safe and definitely content but never truly happy.

When all hope for staying awake during a long day was gone, Emily and Taylor found themselves at the same coffee cart. Little did they know then that the worst coffee they’d ever had would forever change their lives.

When hopeless people are blinded by an endless pain, when contentment and safety feel like the best options, and when love seems impossible, they may just find an exception.

Exception’s Playlist

The day I began writing Exception, I started a playlist that had only fourteen songs, mostly by Adele and Nickelback. Throughout the eight months it took to write Exception, it grew to over 200 songs that range from Elvis Presley to Kiss. They were all inspiring, but to me, these eighteen are as much part of the book as Taylor and Emily.

In My Life – Johnny Cash

“I was thinking, what do you say if I pick you up? You drive a hybrid, so you’re probably down with the whole carpooling idea.”
Her giggles turned into full-blown laugher. “Sure, I’m all about going green.”
“Good choice. Now, if I can have your phone ma’am?” Taylor requested, impatiently shaking his fingers at her.
Emily looked at him with quizzical eyes, but handed her phone over without another question. His fingers moved across the screen at an impressive speed. A few seconds later Taylor smiled and held the phone in front of his face, clearly taking a selfie. His fingers moved again and a beeping noise came from his pocket. Handing her phone back to her, he retrieved his own from his pocket. His fast fingers worked their magic. Seconds later, he pointed the device to her face and asked for a smile before the bright light of the flash shone in her face.

She was still smiling at him when he pocketed the phone. “Real smooth, Taylor.”

Author Bio

Words have always been a passion of mine. I’ve always loved to read them, write them and learn them in other languages. Last year, I’ve decided to take that passion and turn it into a book, the result was Exception, my very first novel due this October.

Whenever I’m not sitting behind my computer, I’m either enjoying the company of my dear hubby, Alex, and our four four-legged babies or reading. I’m a firm believer in long hand written letters, love of any kind and good stories.
