Indie Author Event ~ Michelle Lynn & 2 Giveaways!!

Don't Let Go (The Invisibles #1)

Sadie Miller is attempting to change her ways and hide somewhere no one knows her former self. 
She only wants to finish her final year of college, obtain her degree, and get out from the hold of her affluent parents.

 Then she meets Brady Carsen, the lead singer of The Invisibles, a local band popular with the college crowd.

 She tries to stay away but quickly realizes that, although he might not be what she’s used to, he’s exactly what she needs and more importantly, everything she could possibly want. 

Unfortunately, Sadie’s troubled past left her with insecurities that make her question Brady’s true intentions.

 And while Brady is convinced that Sadie is the one for him, he has his own secrets that he fears will be their undoing.

 If they want to be together, they will have to stand united and fight the outside influences that are threatening to tear them apart.
 Can they put their pasts behind them for good in order to secure their future?  

Let Me In (The Invisibles #2)

**This is a STANDALONE! You do not need to read book 1 in order to enjoy LET ME IN ***

Grant is damaged, selfish, and undeserving of love…or so he thinks.

Jessa is happy, in love, and has overcome her past…or so she thinks.

Grant and Jessa can’t stop thinking about one another since being introduced at a party a month ago. And despite their differences, they can’t seem to stay away from each other either.

 However, both are hiding secrets of less-than-perfect pasts, fearing what will happen when those mistakes come to light. As they grow closer, they each battle their own insecurities, and neither believes that they are worthy of the kind of love that they both still want.

 So if it’s true that opposites attract, what happens when the similarities begin to surface?

Thank you so much for taking part. We can't wait to read more work from you.

Michelle Lynn has always been a reader, but her passion has become a full-blown addiction since her husband bought her a Kindle for Mother's Day. She's pretty sure that he regrets this on a regular basis. Especially when she has it propped up next to the stove while she cooks, which often results in a burnt dinner. Or when he loses sleep because the glow from the screen wakes him up when he rolls over at three in the morning. He does agree, however, that she uses this gift more than any other he has ever gotten her. She joking counters that, because of some of the steamy novels she reads, he also benefits more from this gift than any other he has gotten her. ;)

Michelle moved around the Midwest most of her life, transferring from school to school before settling down in the outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides with her husband and two kids. She developed a love of reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for her passion to write. With the encouragement of her family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many stories that have been floating around in her head. When she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the phone, or hanging out with her family and friends. But after chasing around twin preschoolers all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time after putting the kids to bed.
