Release Day Blitz: Changing Course by Aly Martinez

I met Sarah Kate Erickson when I was 21 years old. I was lucky enough to keep
her for seven years before a tragic accident stole her from me. She didn’t die, but
sometimes I think it would have been easier if she had.
I lived in a haze for those four years after the accident. Catering to her every need,
even though she hated the very sight of my face. I tried to hold on to her and the
future that we were supposed to build together. But you can’t hold on to someone
that doesn’t exist anymore.
It wasn’t until I met Jesse Addison, a barista at the local coffee shop, that I realized I
didn’t just lose Sarah that tragic night, I lost myself as well. Jesse taught me how to
let go of the past and learn to love again. But what happens when your past haunts
your present and the woman you used to love refuses to accept the woman you can’t
live without?


I met Sarah Kate Erickson seven years ago during a chance meeting at the local

library. We were both reaching for the same William Shakespeare Collection. Our

hands brushed, sparks flew, and it was love at first sight. We dated for three years,

got married, and had sex for the very first time on our wedding night. Well, at least

that is the story she made me promise to tell our future children.

The truth is that, I met Sarah in a bar while she was approximately one drop of

alcohol away from spending the night praying to the porcelain gods. She had on

some ridiculously tight red dress and the tallest pair of black fuck-me heels I had

ever seen. It was whore-tastic, but damn, she looked amazing. She was already tall

for a woman, but in those cock-hardening shoes, she towered over the other women.

Her friends were dressed in similarly sexy and in somewhat coordinating outfits. A

collaborative effort that was no doubt on purpose.

I watched as she asked for another drink from the bartender who stood staring at

her partially exposed breasts for a beat too long. She reached across the bar, pushed

one finger under his chin, and guided his gaze back to her eyes while she ordered

drinks. She then turned and leaned her elbows behind her, propping herself up on

the bar, and effectively thrusting her barely covered breasts into the face of every

man in the room. It was then I knew I needed to meet them...I mean her...I had to

meet her.

Sure, staring at her was probably creepy as hell, but I just couldn't take my eyes

off her. As cheesy as it sounds, there was just something about the tall blonde that

commanded my attention. It didn't hurt that I got an insta-hard on when I thought

about those long legs wrapped around my waist. Okay, so maybe staring wasn't the

only creepy part.

About the Author

I’m a 32 year old wife and stay at home mom to four kids under the age of five,

including a set of twins. My life is crazy, which is probably why I drink entirely too

much wine. Oh who am I kidding, I had a love affair with wine long before the kids

came along.  I was born and raised in Savannah Georgia, but we recently moved to

Chicago. Let me tell you, this southern girl was not ready for the cold weather up


I’m an avid reader, but I haven’t always been that way. A few years ago my

sister loaned me her Nook Color, and it changed my life forever. In the span of

about two years, I read over 500 books. My newfound love of reading led me

to start a book blog with two of my best friends. (Insert shameless plug here:

WhiteZinBookends.com). Through WZ Bookends, I've had the opportunity to meet

some of the most amazing authors, bloggers, and readers out there. Now that I have

taken the leap into writing my own book, they’ve all shown me endless amounts of

encouragement and support.

While driving home from Walmart one day in late October, a story embedded itself

in my head and would not let go. It spiraled out of control until I finally opened my

laptop and started writing. This journey has been a wild ride filled with tears, hand

cramps, and tons of laughs. I love company, so follow me at one of the social links

below and join me aboard this crazy train!
