Book Blitz and Giveaway: Out of Line by Jen McLaughlin

So this is the week where lots of great New Adult books are being released and, also, Out of Line by Jen McLaughlin is released this week as well. It's on sale throughout the week and you get the chance to win an exclusive prize which I find pretty awesome. Anyhow, here's the blurb and cover and purchasing links and a giveaway down below.

Genre: New Adult Contemporary

Desperate to break free…
I've spent my entire life under my father’s thumb, but now I'm finally free to make my own choices. When my roommate dragged me to my first college party, I met Finn Coram and my life turned inside out. He knows how to break the rules and is everything I never knew I wanted. A Marine by day and surfer by night, he pushes me away even as our attraction brings us closer. Now I am finally free to do whatever I want. I know what I want. I choose Finn.
Trying to play by the rules...
I always follow orders. My job, my life, depends on it. I thought this job would be easy, all the rules were made crystal clear, but when I met Carrie Wallington, everything got muddy. She's a rule I know I shouldn't break, but damn if I don’t inch closer to the breaking point each time I see her. I’m ready to step out of line. And even worse? I’m living a lie. They say the truth will set you free, but in my case…
The truth will cost me everything.

Meet the author

Jen McLaughlin writes steamy New Adult books for the young and young at heart. Her first release, Out of Line, is due out September 2013. She also writes Contemporary Romance under the pen name Diane Alberts. She is a multi-published, bestselling author and is represented by Louise Fury from the L. Perkins Agency. Since receiving her first contract offer under the pen name Diane Alberts, she has yet to stop writing.
Though she lives in the mountains, she really wishes she was surrounded by a hot, sunny beach with crystal clear water. She lives in Northeast Pennsylvania with her four kids, a husband, a schnauzer mutt, a cat, and a Senegal parrot. In the rare moments when she’s not writing, she can usually be found hunched over one knitting project or another. Her goal is too write so many well-crafted romance books that even a non-romance reader will know her name.

So what do you guys think? Does it have the premise to be awesomesauce? The rating on Goodreads seems pretty decent. I'll be reviewing it on September 23rd and be sure to stop by for my opinion.



  1. That's an interesting giveaway prize.
    I have this to read as you know and I'm looking forward to it.
    Did you end up enjoying it, Siiri?

    1. I know, right? It's definitely not your usual prize, plus I think it helps a lot of aspiring writers and is a cool prize for the fans of this book to win. At the end of the day, I think this is a sweet, light book which doesn't push the boundaries, but puts a smile on your face by the time you're done with it.

  2. I have never in my life seen someone giving away manuscript. That's really interesting. I have seen this book around and I'm glad you enjoyed it somehow. I don't think it's for me though. Great post Siiri :)

    1. Yeah, not all of us can love the same books. I've seen tons of hate and love reviews for The Coldest Girl in Coldtown so I'm not really sad you don't think it's for you. So many books out there that you just have to read whatever floats your boat:)

  3. This actually sounds like a really good book considering I don't read this genre too often. I just added this to my tbr :) Great post!

    1. Thehee, I hope you like it, Janina! :) Thank you:))

  4. This does look good, and I've been seeing it everywhere today. I'm looking forward to the reviews. Thanks for sharing, Siiri!

    1. I know! So many blogs taking part of this tour. You're welcome:)

  5. Oooh, I'm wondering what he has hidden. Sounds like an exciting read and I do love NA. Thanks for sharing, Siiri! :)

  6. 1. I love this cover.
    2. I love the plots about "rule-breaking." Heheheheh. And they meet at a college party? Interesting. I wonder what will happen ;).
    3. This is the week of great NA releases? What a coinky-dink. (Yes I said that. Yes you may judge me ;D). Same for YAish. Ish. Stupid September and October are designed to whittle away your money. Why must Fall be the time of epic releases?
    4. Damn straight I'll be visiting your review. I hope the book ends up being awesomesauce for you. It sounds weird to wish you bucketful of tears, but you know what I mean anyway, yeah? ;)

  7. Oh a marine by day and a surfer by night? Where can I sign up? ;) Thanks for the lovely giveaway Siiri!!

  8. I bought this book right when it went on sale. I still haven't had a chance to read it yet, but I am super excited to! I absolutely love the author. She is so fun to talk to on twitter!!
