Damaged is live!

Saints and Sinners Book Promotions is proud to present a debut novel by debut author Avelyn Paige!!

Evie Carter has faced trials and tribulations her entire life. Her teenage years have been ripped away from her as she battles cancer. Just when things can’t get any worse, her doctor delivers the news that it’s finally time to make a life or death decision. Her options are limited and come with deadly consequences. The miracle drug that is meant to save her life changes her on a cellular level. She might not be damaged anymore, but she might just be damned in her new life.

Barnes & Noble:

Tommy nearly drags me back to the car. I know he’s frustrated that we were interrupted in the gazebo, but his roughness surprises me.  He slams the car into first gear and peels out of the parking lot. I sit quietly in the passenger seat honestly not knowing what to say to diffuse the situation. His face is tight with anger and his hands grip tightly on the steering wheel. He weaves dangerously in and out of traffic. After our drinks, I’m not even sure he should be driving, but I’m too afraid to say anything. I don’t want his anger re-directed at me. He pulls into the facility parking lot and is out of the car before I even get my seatbelt off. He pauses at the door waiting for me to catch up. Reaching for the door, he grabs my arm and jerks me into his chest.

“We will get to finish what we started tonight, Evie. You’ve created a monster inside of me that will only be silenced after being inside of you. You are mine, Evie girl, no matter what the General assigns us to do. I will have you. Now that I’ve said my peace, let’s go see what the bastard wants us to handle for him.”

This was a fantastic debut novel by Avelyn!!!! I was very lucky to read this book while she was writing and I literally could not wait for more. Just when you think you know what’s going to happen… BAM… the story changes completely and you are left thinking what just happened.

Evie is struggling with her fight against cancer. She has tried everything possible and refuses to give up fighting for her life. When Evie is offered an experimental drug she decides to take it without hesitation. Little did Evie know her whole entire life was about to change with this one simple drug mean to save her life. Evie was expecting to live and be happy with her family. But when she woke up everything she thought she knew was completely changed forever.
I hate spoilers and it’s so hard to keep my lips sealed because so many amazing things happened in this book. Evie is no longer the girl fighting for cancer but a beast who cannot be stopped. In this book, we meet some characters that I fell in love with and others I wanted to strangle with my bare hands. At the end of this book my mouth was completely hanging open with shock!! I cannot wait for book 2 and can only cross my fingers that Evie gets the happy life she thought she signed up for.

Avelyn Paige is a born and raised Indiana girl. She may be a Hoosier by birth, but she’s a Boilermaker by choice! Avelyn lives in rural Indiana with her pastor husband, 2 spoiled cats, and one very odd looking dog.  She’s an oncology research scientist by day and a writer and book review blogger by night. She enjoys reading anything she can get her hands, baking, and spending time with her friends and family.

Never intending on ever writing her own book, the idea behind the Damaged series came to her on a drive to work early one morning thinking about her father who’d recently passed away. His strength during his cancer and rare blood disease battle inspired Avelyn to do something she’s never thought about before. She’s excited to see where this wild ride takes her.
