Spotlight Tuesday & #Giveaway: Unforeseen (Alex Crocker Seer #1) by Lauren Grimley

Title: Unforeseen
Series: Alex Crocker Seer #1
Author: Lauren Grimley
Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance
Publisher: Malachite Quills
Pages: 350


Amazon | Smashwords | Barnes & Noble |

Alex was sure gifted was a term delusional parents applied to their strictly average children, vampires were gorgeous dead guys in her eighth-grade girls' novels, and Seers was a middle schooler's misspelling of a department store known for power tools. Teachers, however, don't know everything–-it’s Alex’s turn to be educated.

Running alone the night before school ends, Alex is violently attacked. She quickly learns she’s being hunted for possessing a gift she never wanted, one that could kill her or provide the power she’ll need to protect herself and those she cares for. Hunted for her gift and haunted by her dreams, Alex is driven to fight, even if it means allying herself with those just as deadly as her enemies.

What people are saying about Unforeseen:

"I enjoyed this book a great deal and found that the more I read the more I liked…The story flowed well and each character was well defined. I will read book two and cannot wait for it to come out."-- Night Owl Reviews–reviewer, Danatwnsnd

"Give me more! This book is irresistible, and made me sad that it ended. Alex is conceived as a woman that most women want to be like. She is someone who accomplishes things that seem impossible. Lauren Grimley spins a tale of suspense, pain, and yes ladies, a little bit of love. An enjoyable read from cover to cover. Ladies, grab yourself a good cup of tea and a cozy chair; you are going to want to get comfortable because you won’t want to put this one down." --­­Readers Favorite–reviewer, Robin Clark

"Now this was truly a great piece of vampire fiction, it had everything needed to keep me interested and ready for more. The writing is great, it’s strong and descriptive and really gives voice and life to the characters. It reminded me a bit of JR Ward’s style a bit but it’s not as aggressive in it’s delivery, it’s a bit more at ease and the descriptions are not as exaggerated. The plot is great and there is a good amount of depth and detail that goes into the world that really made me curious as to the things merely mentioned."--In Libras Veritas review -reviewer, Michelle Gilmore

          Darian sat across from her on the edge of the cream colored upholstered wing back. His temper was calm, and as he leaned over, resting his elbows on the knees of his khaki pants, Alex struggled to remember who, or what, she was having this conversation with. The only reason she answered him was because her own curiosity couldn’t be quelled.
         “I don’t know how, really. It’s never happened before. Not like this, not so strong. And it’s like he said, I can’t seem to stop it or block it out,” Alex was as much working through her own thoughts, as answering Darian’s question.
         “But what is it you can do, exactly?”
         “I—this is going to seem nuts—”
         “You’re in a room full of vampires, one of whom has been reading your thoughts for the
last half hour. That in itself would seem nuts to most humans,” Rocky pointed out.
         “Can I gag him?” Markus asked Darian.
         “What? He’s the one flashing his fangs at her. You think she passed that off as a dental
         Darian began to run his hands through his hair again. The moment Rocky saw it he
blanched and quickly backpedaled.
         “Sorry, Regan, I just—sorry.” He looked at his feet. Seeing the reaction, Alex wondered
how often Darian doled out shiners, but for the meantime, he maintained his cool.
         “Please, continue, Alex.”
         Alex looked at Sage who looked away. She had never put words to what she could do before. Ever since she was a teen she had fought an over-active mind. That wasn’t right, either. It wasn’t her mind—it was her emotions, or her other sense, as she thought of it. She was hypersensitive to others’ feelings, and not just guys crushing on her. She had often found herself caught up in the emotions of her family, friends, even her students. A school counselor once labeled her extremely empathetic, though when others’ moods distracted or upset her, she had just felt pathetic. And that was when what she felt was merely vague glimpses.
         “I can sense his emotions. I can sense them as strongly as if they were my own. It’s disconcerting.”
         “Tell me about it,” Sage muttered.
         “Is Sage the only one you can sense?”
         “Yes. Well, the only one I can feel with such consistency and clarity. I . . . I think I may have been doing it to a lesser degree since I was a kid, though. I’ve just got really good intuition, I guess.” Alex wasn’t sure whether she tacked on the last sentence to sound less insane to them or to herself. Because if she were going to be honest with herself, she had always wondered if it was more than that. In fact, until tonight, she had worried a bit about her sanity. After all, in thereal world extra senses and mind reading didn’t exist. But, tonight, in this alternate reality she found herself in, she was almost able to accept she was something more than just freakishly over- sensitive. Maybe there was another explanation. She was beginning to think she wanted answers as much as they did.
         “And your brothers, are either of them also . . . intuitive, as you call it?” Darian asked Alex, but his eyes flickered to Sage. She tried to feel what Sage’s reaction to this was, but her own emotions about this topic were too intense.
         “My brothers are both dead.” Alex’s voice hung heavy in the air.
         “How did they die?” Darian asked sitting erect. She watched him and Sage exchange another glance and began to wonder why they were asking these questions.
         “A car crash. Dave was nineteen, Levi was seventeen, and I was fifteen. Why does it matter?”
         “Were you with them?” Darian asked leaning forward again. He ignored her question.
         “No, they were alone. Well, the cops think they may have been drag racing another car, but no one ever came forward.” Alex knew her voice had the mechanical sound of someone who had told this tragic story enough times to be able to maintain a limited amount of control over her emotions.
         “How old are you now, Alex?” Darian asked.
         “Is that important?” Alex wasn’t going to relay her life story without a reason.
         “I’m sorry,” Darian said misjudging her tone, “I know it’s rude to ask a lady her age,
         “It’s not that. I just get the sense there’s a reason you’re asking me. Actually, I’m wondering why you brought me here to begin with?”
            When she began to think about it, Alex had an infinite number of questions. Why did they attack her? Clearly, they didn’t want to mug her; from the looks of this office, they didn’t need the money—not that a jogger without a purse would have any on her anyway. If they had wanted to hurt her or rape her, they wouldn’t have bothered to bring her back here and treat her wounds, never mind waste time inundating her with all these questions. And then there was the third attacker. Was he one of them? Were they angry he hurt her or jealous he found her first? She got a shiver down her spine as she remembered Sage slitting his throat from ear to ear, the blood spilling out in a rush.

Lauren Grimley lives in central Massachusetts where she grew up, but her heart is on the beaches of Cape Cod where she spends as much of her time as possible. After graduating from Boston University she became a middle school English teacher. Unforeseen is her debut novel, and she now has a short from the series also available on Amazon. Lauren has her seventh graders to thank for starting her on this path; it was they who convinced a rather skeptical new teacher vampire stories were worth reading. She now spends her time writing them when she should be correcting papers.
