Book Blitz + Giveaway: Twelve Months of Awkward Moments by Lisa Acerbo

Happy almost-but-not-quite-Friday friends! Today we have an exciting new release for you to dive into. I think a few of you out there might be able to relate to our introverted lead, Dani, and he struggles with being social. After all, a good book is great company. 

Twelve Months of Awkward Moments
Lisa Acerbo
Publication date: August 30th 2018
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense
Dani can’t wait for senior year at college. A straight-A scholar whose anxiety is a daily struggle, being awkward, introverted, and studious has become a way of life. She vows this year will be different. It’s time to move beyond her comfort zone, but that’s not easy.
Dani’s wild roommate and handsome best friend hate each other; her crazy family won’t leave her alone; and a new job forces her to be social. Unfortunately, when college romance finally calls, Dani is unable to answer thanks to a stalker who has her all tied up.
Can she stay alive long enough to find love and graduate?

There was never supposed to be a fairytale chance that I’d be the one in serious
trouble. I’m the studious introvert. The college student who actually went to school to
get a degree in something I love. The rule follower. The good girl. The last one asked to
the party.
Evil doesn’t care when bad things happen to good girls. Someone like me isn’t
supposed to have a stalker, a man who makes panic track through me like a virus, a man
who devours me like the cat in the Grimm fairytale. But here I am.

I try to twist my head away, his palm smashes into my face, hitting my cheek and
ear. Pain rings through my head. He draws back, knowing I’m trapped in my own living
room. Dread coils in my stomach. Nausea ripens like week old bananas.
“This is what you want.” He spits the words. “This has always been what you
wanted from the first day we met. I hate when women play games. For a while, I
believed you might be different, but you’re not.”
He inches towards me again, his fist raised, clenched and trembling. I’m unable
to speak. I gag on my breath.
“Or is this what you want?” His hand squeezes my arm so hard, I yelp. One small
part of my brain realizes this might be my last chance to act. A sob escapes as I rip my
arm away and run. But where can I go? I’m terrified of what follows.
“Damn it, Dani! There is nowhere to go. What do you think you’re trying to do?”
His voice is placating and whiny at the same time. Time slows as I sprint from the living
room to the bedroom. My thoughts flee back to my ordinary life a few months ago.
