Book Blast and Giveaway ~ Infinite Fear by Jacqueline Abrahams

 
 
 
 
SYNOPSIS:
 
Infinite Fear – A Scared Series Novella
 


Spending his days
drunk and his nights high, priding himself on his perfection of the one night
stand, Jackson Jones has hit rock bottom. He is caught in a vicious cycle,
spiraling downwards, at war with a formidable opponent: himself.

Life for Jackson
wasn’t always like this. At eighteen, he thought he had it all: a beautiful
girlfriend who he loved, good friends, and even better grades that would help
him get into any college he chose. But one event changed everything, and now
his bright future has all but disappeared completely.

With some help from
an old friend and a sexy, mysterious woman, will Jackson be able to find the
closure he needs to move on from his past and reclaim his future? Can he shut
his demons out, for good? Or will he remain stuck in a cycle of Infinite Fear?

EXCERPT:
 
For the first year after she left, my calls went to her
voicemail, allowing me to hear the sound of her voice as if she was right here
beside me. Then, one fateful autumn morning, about a year ago, the voicemail
didn’t pick up. A robotic voice informed me that the number had been
disconnected. I still call, though. It’s been two years. Two years since she
walked out of my life. Two years that I have been waiting for her to come back.
Two years that I have spent worrying, obsessing over what I could have done
differently. Two years since she ripped my heart out and fucking stood on it.
Every morning, I fight the urge to fling my cell across the room when I hear
that fateful recording.
 
Rinsing the empty coffee cup, I go to the fridge and grab a
Corona from the bottom shelf before making my way out to the front porch with
it and a cigarette. My neighborhood is rough, but at the same time, it’s so
real. Children play on their front porches, and the local women gather in small
tight circles, gossiping about the one that hasn’t yet joined them. Every
family on my street has painted their house in various colors of the same cheap
ass paint from the local hardware store, with the result that it’s peeling and
flaking in wide sections.
 
A few locals walk by. I raise a hand to the guys. The women who
have been unfortunate enough to end up in my bed all walk by, eyeing me quickly
then rushing past. I can never figure out if they truly hate me, or if they
just wish they were riding my dick again, and they’re so mad because they
aren’t. The ones that I have yet to conquer walk by more slowly, stealing
glances at my bare chest. To those, I offer a small smile, always keeping my
options open.
 
But for the last two years, this neighborhood has been a painful
reminder of Shana’s absence. We’d been friends since middle school. Back then,
she hadn’t grown into her breasts or her face, but once she did, she was
beautiful. We began dating in high school. She was my first kiss. Right here on
this porch, in the fucking love seat. We carved our names into a heart on the
tree that bordered between my house and the neighbor’s, like lovesick children.
Heart, arrow, and all. A few months ago, I had ceremoniously taken my knife and
gouged out the offending reminder. I was drunk and regretted it the next day.
My bed, which has now been relegated to entertaining random women, was where we
lost our virginity to each other.
