Perfectly Aligned by Stephanie Alba: Blog Tour Excerpt & Giveaway


Blurb:

Ten years.

It had been ten years since Corwin Rogers saw Hailee Samuels at their high school graduation. Hailee, on the other hand, saw Corwin frequently in her dreams. Despite their lack of contact, Corwin’s gorgeous face haunted her mind, and in its idle hours of the night, it always reverted back to the image of the teenage boy she loved in secret years ago.

They’d been classmates during those four years, forging a limited friendship and bond over their struggles. Hailee never told him how she felt, and she wasn't sure if the feelings were reciprocated either, because while Corwin shared most of himself with her, there was still distance between them. When she runs into him ten years later, the two are given another fateful opportunity to be everything for each other.

Hailee starts to believe that her inexplicable dreams meant something and that her ties to Corwin were stronger than she ever believed, but when secrets are kept and the truth emerges, it challenges their chance at finally being perfectly aligned.

About the Author:

Stephanie Alba has wanted to write for as long as she can remember. Writing was always a way to express herself, as well as an escape. In August of 2014, Stephanie decided to start writing a story that she dreamed about. At first it was just something fun for her to do, a way of keeping her sanity during her first year as a stay at home mom. Over the months she couldn’t stop writing and that’s where For Both Are Infinite came along. Rhys and Ellie’s story was hard work, but it allowed her to fulfill the goal she’d always had of writing a novel.

Before becoming an indie author, Stephanie taught high school English. Now she is a stay at home mom to the happiest baby ever, a wife to an amazing husband, and a graduate school student. She also hopes to continue writing. When she’s not glued to her laptop or with a notebook in her hand, she’s swimming, running, reading or chasing her toddler.

Stephanie is currently working on her second novel, a friends to lovers story set in Washington state. It is set to release during fall 2015. She also plans on writing more of Ellie and Rhys’ story, as well as stories focusing on other characters you meet in For Both Are Infinite.

Excerpt:

“You’re exactly the same,” he laughed, his dimples severely indenting his cheeks.

“Huh?”

“You’re still super-shy and quirky.”

“I wasn’t and am not.”

“Relax, I mean it as a compliment. I like your bashfulness.” His brows rose as he continued, “But you are and most certainly were a ball of nerves back then. Don’t you remember the first time we were paired together freshman year? You hardly looked at me.”

“Yeah, well it was the first day … I was rightfully nervous.”

“And now?” He coaxed me to look up at him, but I didn’t.

“Now what?” I asked, continuing to stare at the ground.

“Are you nervous now? You’re not looking at me and barely have all day.”

My eyes shot up and met his. The truth was I’d stared at him all day, but he had no idea because it only happened when he wasn’t aware. I’d scarcely made eye contact because his body looked ridiculously amazing and I felt like he was watching me too, looking at my body in a new light. It was too much.

I wasn’t sure if it was in my head or not, but I was worried if he looked into my eyes long enough, that he’d know everything; that my secrets would pour out of my appearance and he’d sense how attractive I found him. Something told me he already did because he had started watching me mischievously now and biting his lower lip. He was irresistible and so tempting. I stared at his mouth and bulging biceps for too long and he chuckled to himself, obviously conscious of my thoughts. I looked up again and met his green eyes that were seemingly smiling along with his grin. They seemed a brighter shade of green against the dark forest leaves. Corwin looked captivating amongst nature. It really brought out the color of his radiant complexion, the browns and greens of the earth blending perfectly with his beauty.

“There you are,” he whispered, nudging my shoulders and beholding me through thick, dark lashes.

“I’ve always been here, Corwin.” I managed to keep eye contact with him, though it was difficult and left me notably exposed.

“Yeah, but now you’re actually looking. Now you see me … like you used to.”

“I always did. I think that was the hardest part after you left … not hearing from you. I know we weren’t best friends, but sometimes it felt close to that. Sometimes it was like I was something more to you.”
