DELUXE EDITION features bonus material and chapter, plus a sneak peek of TAKING SOMETHING out now!

Here's the deal... I learned a long time ago that sometimes you have to use what you've got to make things happen. What I happen to have is a pretty smile, long legs and the ability to make men believe anything I say. Before you get on your high horse and start judging me, can you honestly say you've never batted your lashes at some guy for a free drink at the bar? That's what I thought.

Keep that in mind as I tell you my story of how I took it one step further. My story of lies, deceit, manipulation and love. Yeah, love. Believe me, it fits. Especially, when you factor in Nick and Tucker – one had my heart and the other one wanted it all for himself. Which one? Well, I can't tell you that. It would defeat the purpose of the story. If I'm going to fill you in about me, Lila Garrison, and my life as a con artist you're going to need to know all the facts, including the ones about the two guys who made me want to give up the life of fancy clothes, expensive jewelry, fast cars and easy money. Because sometimes, one person can give you something that's more valuable than all of that.

If you're still interested, stick around. Just remember, I'm pretty good at convincing people to do what I want, so if by the end of this whole thing you feel worked over, don't say I didn't warn you.

Lila Garrison is unhappy with her life and decides to take a few shortcuts to the good life. Now, a new adult in college, she is trying to live at the right side of the road, but the love of her life and best-friend, keeps getting himself in trouble and she keeps helping him out. Then comes in Tucker, a mark totally different than her previous victims. He is young, sexy and smart! Does she have a good heart after all? Is she willing to change for love? Is she ready to give up all her life plans for a new beginning?

Give Me Something has a great plot that grabs the reader and doesn’t let go. I did another all-nighter reading this book, because somehow, I couldn’t put it down. I’m not certain why, but when I looked at my clock it was three in the morning and I would only have two and a half hours of sleep. In fact, Ms. Lee is a pro at hooking me to her books. This is my fourth book of Ms. Lee, and it seems I’ve became a fan for life.

I love the characters of this book! I adore screw up people, and Lila is one of the most complex females that I’ve read in a while. Each time I’ve believed I had her figured out, she would show me another dimension of her personality. She is not a good girl, but she isn’t a bad girl either. Tucker is another great surprise! He seems like mr. perfect, until he shows he is not. OMG! And Nick, is the secondary character that almost steals the show. That boy is bad, but he is so bad that he ends up being good! These are characters to fall in love with.

Another positive point that I always find within Ms. Lee’s books is that things are never as they seem. There is always a twist, or a few twists to come. When I’m ready to say, ok this is an Ok read, she changes the mood of her writing and it’s UNBELIEVABLE good!

Yeah! Both plot and characters are very addictive, and you want to finish fast! Of course I will start book 2 today, because I’m dying to see what else Nick can do!

You may read this book because you like the cover; you should read this book because you enjoy contemporary romance; but you MUST read this book because you want to be taken into a fast crazy ride with lots of sexy amazing scenes!

“If you think I had a Robin Hood complex, I didn’t. I was selfish and greedy, just like Nick. People who say that money can’t buy happiness obviously never had it.”

About Elizabeth Lee

Born and raised in the middle of a Midwestern cornfield (not literally, that would be weird), I’ve spent my entire life imagining stories. Stories where the right guy always gets the right girl, first kisses are as magical as they are on the big screen and anything is completely possible if you believe.

Although this journey began years ago, it recently took on a whole new life. After years of devouring hundreds of Romance, YA and New Adult novels, I had an epiphany… I should write a book. And I did it!

If I’m not reading, writing, enjoying drinks with my amazing group of girlfriends or chasing around a sarcastically funny kid, I’m probably watching television shows that were created for teenagers, while my husband teases that I’m too old to watch them
