Sail
Book Two in The Wake Series
by M. Mabie
Blog Tour 13th – 25th April
Synopsis
This isn’t just a two-year long one-night stand. It’s my life.
This is my life. Our life. It isn’t just some careless affair.
I’ve made the worst decisions a woman could, but I’ll earn my second chance.
She can try keeping all the guilt for herself, but I’m just as much to blame.
Loving Casey wasn’t my biggest mistake. Fighting it for so long was.
I’ll show her how fearless our love makes me. I’ll protect her torn heart.
He still has magic in his eyes. He’s the man who makes me happy.
Her voice still brings me to my knees. She says my name like it’s sacred.
I live for the day when I’m his. To take care of him. To love him the way he deserves.
I can’t wait to be all she needs. I can give her a happy life, security and so much love.
Sometimes two ships never meet in the night, but ours did.
Sometimes the water is rough. It beats you all to hell until you have no choice but get stronger.
Our love story reads more like a tragedy, but to me it’s clean and pure.
Let them point their fingers. Without a love like ours, they haven’t really lived. I pity them.
I’m a cheating wife and a villain. I am his honeybee.
I’m a snake in the grass and I sleep best when I’m lying next to his wife.
I want to be his everything.
I’m nothing without her anyway.
This isn’t even close to over.
It’ll never be over.

Sail is the second book in the continuing Wake Series. For more information on the first book in the series see the link for Bait below.

Excerpt

The room was dimly lit with the few lights we’d left on. It was late, and even though I was tired from travel and just life in general, I craved the feel of him.
Our suite was warm, void of chill or worry. In the bedroom, we didn’t bother with a light, knowing where everything was by memory.
He guided me to bed. He let my hair down and brushed it off my shoulders, and then he held me close and pressed his lips to mine. Casey laid us down so softly I barely knew we were moving until I felt the fluffy pillow under my head.
I deepened our kiss and moaned when his body pressed against mine.
“We’re not going to have sex tonight, Blake,” he said breathlessly around my lips. Why? I wanted him so badly. Just like that. Slow and easy.
I tried to evict thoughts of uncertainty from my mind, but they snuck in with his words. His behavior was contradictory. He’d shown me nothing but affection and care since we saw each other in the airport.
Why wouldn’t he make love to me?
Old demons felt the need to speak up.
What if he doesn’t want you after the chase? What if he only likes the thrill?
I felt my body begin to tense for the first time since we’d arrived. The hands that had been wandering across his back stilled. The leg I had started to wrap around his waist slowly began falling to the side.
“Hey, where are you going,” he said, as he kissed my neck and ran a hand through my hair to the nape of my neck.
“I don’t understand,” I contested. “I want you.” He shifted his weight and I felt how hard he was against my inner thigh. He was definitely turned on. So what was his deal? “Don’t you want me, too?”
“Mmmm,” he breathed near my ear. “God, I want you.” His big right hand hitched my leg back around his hip and he palmed my ass, bringing my dress up to my waist in the process and exposing my pale pink underwear. “I’ve wanted you day and night for so long now. I don’t know how to not want you.” He spoke between kisses and rubbed his nose along my clavicle. Then he bit me gently at the crook of my neck. “But there’ve been too many times I’ve let that need for you cloud my focus.”
“But I—”
“No, Blake. Not tonight. Tonight, I’m going to make you come and then I’m going to sleep next to you. I’m going to fall asleep with you in my arms. All those nights I missed out on holding you and feeling you next to me. I stole them from both of us being scared and stubborn.
I have to be better this time. I see all that you’re doing and I’m so damn proud of you, honeybee,” he said calmly. “But I want more than just physical things from you. It isn’t that I don’t want you. Fuck, do I want you. But I need all of you. Not just this.” He moved against my center and I knew I had to change his mind. After hearing those sweet
words, I had to have him and I wasn’t going to fight fair.
“Please, Casey. Fuck me.”
He growled and pressed his forehead to my chest. “You’re evil.” He laughed. I wished he sounded defeated, but mostly he sounded amused. “You’re not making it easy for me to be noble.”
“Don’t be noble then,” I said as I wound my arms around him and
pulled him closer to me.
“If you knew what I was thinking about doing to you, you’d know I wasn’t.” He rolled partially over toward the center of the bed and ran his hand under my dress and up to my breast.
“Then tell me,” I shamelessly suggested.
The tips of his fingers roamed down my stomach and my pulse sped up. His fingers slid under the sheer fabric of my underwear and my breaths came in spurts as I mentally begged him to keep going. I was so wound up.
“Don’t worry. I told you I’d take care of you.”

Review by: Sam 

So, after finishing Bait, I wanted to choke slam Blake into the nearest wall, slap her senseless and then throw her in front of a train!!! A little harsh right?? Well if you have read the book, you will understand these feelings! If you haven't, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU WAITING FOR????? No where in my mind was the shit that chick pulled redeemable! That book ended on the biggest cliffhanger EVER.....resulting in the biggest book hangover EVER!!!!
So when the sign up for Sail came onto the blog, I NEEDED it! The turmoil that Bait delivered ensured that it is one book I personally, would never forget.
Sail starts up from where Bait finished off, not that I needed a reminder because it SLAYED MY DAMN HEART OUT ALL OVER AGAIN, but MMabie grips me with her writing style and gave me EVERYTHING and MORE!
Blake and Casey have THE connection! Not just little bits that make a couple have amazing chemistry but the DEEP be all and end all explosive kind! Personally, I wish they were honest with each other, talking about their individual feelings, it is the one major thing that they lack as a couple.
Casey.....lets talk about this FANFREAKINGTASTIC man who makes my ovaries sing out in harmony! The man will do anything to make Blake's dreams and wishes come true, he loves Blake with everything he is! *sigh*
Blake has redeemed herself in this book! I actually really loved her character and felt for her during this book. I may not have agreed with what she did previously or the way she went about it, but now I have read Sail, I'm over it!
This book does not hold the hurt, betrayal or turmoil we encountered in Bait! This book is full of heartfelt emotion, steamy scenes, and a gripping intensity that has you hoping for the best until the very end.
This book is written in a dual POV which just added to the awesomeness! I loved everything about it! Congratulations Mo, it's bloody fantastic!!

Review by: Leeann 

Blake & Casey’s affair started in Bait & this is the conclusion to their story.

Their relationship has not been easy, it began a bit backwards. But they have learnt to communicate, to be able to rely on each other  & most importantly, to trust each other.
Blake has always felt she needed to do what is expected of her. She never wants to let people down & more often than not, puts everyone else’s needs before her own, including her husband, her parents & also Casey.

In Sail, she is learning to stand on her own two feet, stand up for herself & what she wants, take what she needs & be happy. It has been a hard life lesson for her, but she finally feels she is headed in the right direction & her relationship with Casey has never been better.
She is just waiting on her husband to sign the papers & give her the divorce she desperately wants.
Casey has wanted Blake from the beginning. He is there for her every step of the way. When she asked him to wait while she divorced her husband, he did. Although Blake is still technically married, she is now with Casey full time & he couldn’t be happier.

But like all good stories, Blake’s past, in the form of her soon to be ex-husband, has come back to bite her in the butt in the most horrific way leaving Casey & Blake’s family wondering if they could have done anything differently.
Casey vows to Blake that if they get through this he will never, ever leave her side again.

This is a well written story that keeps you interested from start to finish. The development of both Casey & Blake’s characters though out both Bait & Sail is easy to follow & the more the story progresses, the more you can understand why they did what they did & how they 
got to where they are. Even if you initially think they are terrible people for going about their relationship the way they have, by the end you will like them & be hoping they get their happy ending.
The heart wants what it wants & sometimes even if it means people get hurt, the pull is just too strong to fight it.

I would strongly recommend you read Bait first so you get the background to Blake & Casey’s story so far.
