Book Tour - The UNDERGROUND by TR Graves

 

Underground (Secrets, #2) by T. R. Graves
Release date: October 13, 2013
Age Group:  New Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Synopsis: Betrayal and loss have changed Emily Riddle in ways she never thought possible. With a death wish guiding her every move, she's willing to compromise her morals, ethics, and instincts to bring to justice the men who've broken her heart... even if that means living a life underground, being someone she's not, and pretending to respect the very men she's positioning herself to take down.
 

As soon as she teams up with the district attorney, Tope Bryson, and agrees to be a member of his covert operation, she returns to the commune and convinces the patriarchal leaders she is the most qualified person to take on roles traditionally assigned to men. Desperate and without options, Owen, the commune's leader and Emily's father, agrees to a temporary change.

 

Emily takes full advantage of the opportunity and quickly proves to him, much to her brothers' dismay, that he can't live without having her in those critical roles and that she may be the best candidate for his next in command.

 
She and Tope quickly realize that the men of the commune consider a woman who threatens the good ol' boy system that's been in place for decades public enemy number one. Determined to protect Emily from her brothers, Tope plants an undercover officer and charismatic law student, Noah Babineaux, in the commune. Neither Tope nor Emily is prepared for the attention Noah pays her.
 
With a nothing-else-matters attitude, Emily focuses on her underground mission and pushes down her hate, anger, grief, and... blossoming feelings until they threaten to explode from the inside and tear her apart. It's a race against the clock to get the evidence necessary—and ultimately, the retaliation Emily craves—before a life of submissive brutality, or sibling jealousy, kills her.

EXCERPT

Armed with a plan to help Tess and no longer spiraling down, I feel stronger. I feel like I might be the one and only person who can and will bring the commune leaders—my father and brothers—to justice. The reason I'll be successful should be depressing, but it's not.

I have a death wish and don't give a rat's ass if I live or die.

Absent the fear that's driven everything I've ever done, I feel invincible. There's an end in sight. I feel it. I'm sure of it. I take a deep, cleansing breath and stretch my muscles. Really uncurl my body for the first time in days.

None of them will ever see me coming.

A marrow-deep laugh wants to bubble its way to the surface, but I know Owen will find it odd. Rather than bringing him closer, it may drive him further away. Instead, I submissively demure. That's what he's looking for and that's what I will give him.

"I'll be back here around noon tomorrow. You be ready to go. You hear?"

He reaches over and acts as if he's going to stroke my hair, but he doesn't. He grabs a handful of it and tilts my head back, waiting for me to look him in the eyes and let him know I plan to do exactly as he asks. I nod because I know he expects it of me.

Irritated by the nod, he says, "When we get back to the commune, I'm gonna tan your hide for all of this. I'll tell you another thing. I ain't puttin' up with this weaklin' bullshit one more day."

I hate you!

"Yes, sir," I say aloud.
