The "Who-Needs-Summer-Lovin'?" Giveaway

Happy Monday, readers! Melissa here, and if you've been following the comments to our "Summer Romance" posts, you already know I have ZERO experience with summer flings. Zilch. Nada. I've never even had a vacation hookup.

Womp, womp.

But you know what? I've indulged in many a scandalous liaison...from within the pages of a book. So I ask you: Who needs stupid summer lovin' when you can live vicariously through fiction? [fist pump] Not this gal!

To celebrate our liberation from vacation flings, I'm giving away TWO Sourcebooks titles that capture young love.






How can you win? It's easy! You must:

1. Be a follower of this blog. (Click the blue button on the upper right-hand side of the page that says "Join this site.")

2. Leave a comment to this post and include your contact information. (yourname (at) email (dot) com) We promise not to use your email for any nefarious purpose, such as framing you for murder or adding you to a newsletter.

3. Due to the high cost of international shipping, this giveaway is only open to US residents. By participating, you agree to the rules set forth on our contest disclaimer page.

4. That's it! The contest closes Friday, August 17th, at 5pm EST. At that time, we'll assign each comment a number and use random.org to choose the winner. If the winner doesn't respond within 48 hours, we'll choose another winner, and so on.

Good luck, and screw summer romance!

Want to enter ANOTHER giveaway? Then visit my blog, The Unrepentant Escapist, for a chance to win an advance reader copy of ANYTHING BUT ORDINARY, which releases in September from Hyperion.



Melissa Landers is the author of ALIENATED, a seriously foreign exchange coming in February, 2014 from Disney-Hyperion. You can learn more about Melissa on her website, and she'd love for you to add ALIENATED to your Goodreads bookshelf!

I'm with you on the lack of summer flings. Unless you count my husband... which, I don't, haha.

No summer flings for me either, ever. I haven't read either of these, but Catching Jordan was one that had caught my eye.

No summer flings for me, either! I love this party, and finally, finally, feel cool! (sorta) Those covers are adorable. *swoon*

Gotta love your rebellious attitude, girl! :-)
Apparently you didn't miss much with your lack of summer romance.
What great giveaways! I'm sure people like those more than your heartbreaking story of summer romance. LOL.
Happy Monday!

True, Kim. Fiction is so much more interesting than any tale I could've spun about my boring-ass summers!

No summer flings for me either. Just lots of crushes.....that ended in my heart being crushed. :( That is until I found my ONE TRUE LOVE.

I, uh, lived for the summer fling. I had a steady boyfriend but lived for my 2 week summer vacation away. Loved him to death, but wanted to have fun with my cousins (also got to bring a girlfriend). If I met someone, which was pretty much the goal of the vacation, I had fun - never got serious or did anything crazy physically, but indulged in some good kissing. I know, sleasy girlfriend. But I met some really nice guys, all who had girlfriends too. It was the 70's version of "what happens at the lake - stays at the lake."
