Painted Lines Blog Stop, Dee's Review, AND A BIG BIG Giveaway

Painted Lines
By Brei Betzold

This can be purchased on Amazon or Smashwords

Scout has always wanted to follow in her family’s business of custom bike building. Being female never stopped her from getting greasy and slapping on paint with the best of them, and made her work even harder at opening up her own shop someday.

When an opportunity to win $500,000 dollars in prize money presents itself, Scout and her group of misfit friends sign on the dotted line to be filmed for a reality television show to win it. But like anything in life there’s always a catch to free money.

When nightmares of the past meet dreams of the future, Scout is forced to face her demons, or be quickly over run by the memories. In the midst of her inner turmoil, family will come home, and possibly a life she never expected to have could be within her grasp.

About Brei:
Stay at home mom to one very interesting little boy. I have been writing since 7th grade when my English teacher turned me onto poetry and never stopped. Thank you Mrs. Williams. In high school I had yet another English teacher inspire me to start writing short stories where I found my first true love, turning words into something so simple yet complex that it can move other people to love it or hate it, but in the end to feel emotions about something I created.

Dee’s Review:

Wow. So I read this book in one day. Granted it was in a car ride from Atlantic City to Ohio, but still one day. Really, 10 hours. I had a little trouble getting into it at first. I mean I could tell that Scout is tormented by a memory or something she went through, but it isn't something that is spelled out right away. We, along with Thayne, have to wait for her to open up and tell us the full story. Sorry, I'm impatient.

 We may get snippets here and there, I was dying to know what the heck was tormenting her. Then it comes out, I promise you I cried. Not once thought. Every time she had to tell the story, or live through a nightmare, I cried. It took me there. It took me to that he!! that she lived through. It's escaping it that seems to be the problem.

This just goes to show you how well this book was written. How she may have been damaged, but still is a fighter to the core.  And every day is a fight. Not only to get your life back from everyone controlling and intervening, but then everything that happens to her in the scheme of the story... it was a lot to handle. And its so painfully obvious to me as a reader how much of a fighter this chick is, and of course she doesn't see it. But Scout is so bad ass. All of what i just told you, PLUS she rides a motorcycle, and can rebuild and paint them. I Want to be HER!!

In all honestly, the whole case was. Liam, Kale, Cas, Scout, Nikki, Thayne, Cam, and of course Zadok. They are all just eat-you-up awesome. And you will love them. From the gay couple, to the struggling married, even Saul and  Matt. Even the ones you hate, I mean, you don’t just hate them- you despise them. Gah, one word. Ace!! or worse TRISTAN! Immediately I get irritated. Okay, downright Pissed!

 Obviously, I can go on and on about how good this book was. Despite the slow moving beginning, I think this was an awesome book. I do have to say this one thing.. There is no way this is really the end, is it???? I give this book  4 hearts. Enjoy!!
