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.

DAWN’S REVIEW
5 Glorious Stars!!
To say I merely loved Bait and Sail by Mo Mabie would be a huge understatement!! I practically lived inside these books as I read them. Drowning out reality and getting lost within.  Both books were brilliant for some very different reasons. After my out of body experience while reading Bait, Sail was one of the most anticipated books of the year for me. As much as Bait utterly destroyed me, it also thrilled me to my core. Making me NEED it’s follow up book!  I was deeply effected by Casey and Blake’s torturously rocky journey. There were so many glorious highs and so many horrible lows. My heart and mind became fully invested.  I think I may have died a little at the end of Bait. I was totally heartbroken and crushed. I had the biggest book hangover. I honestly didn’t know how much more I could take, but I knew I needed more of their story and definitely more Casey. That boy really did me in! If I could create the perfect guy, Casey Moore would be him. If you loved him in Bait, hold onto your heart through Sail. I was swooning all over the place. He definitely manned up!! Showing me the man, I knew he could be…. Not just the one night stand guy. Taking responsibility and being completely supportive. He turned up the romance too! As for Blake, I may be one of her very few supporters. I always sympathized with her. Having two great guys, what was a girl to do? Both of them making it just to easy. Well, in SAIL we get to see a different Blake. One who is honest, determined, remorseful and mature. Damn that girl stepped up! I was so proud of her. I always knew she had it in her. The transformation in Casey and Blake was astounding…. as much as they evolved they never lost who they were.
“We got this.”
SAIL exceeded every expectation I had. It was just perfect. Every sentence, every paragraph and every chapter had purpose and meaning. As I sit here with a permanent smile on my face and at a complete loss for words… Thinking how do I write a review for an absolutely flawless book? Mo deserves to be praised, so I am trying. Only hoping I can do her justice. Mo’s words were like poetry floating across the pages. They evoked so much raw emotion. I may have held my breath a few times, as tears stung my eyes. The love and intimacy was just oozing off the pages. As serious as it was, it was also playful, funny and romantic. The easy banter and extraordinary sex between them from the beginning was still present and going strong. Like I said, just perfect!
“I think we are more like the the wind and a sail…..”
“You’re like the wind, and I’m like the sail. When I go against you, it’s rough, almost impossible to find my path. But when my mind finally submitted to my heart, every thing was easier. And the best part was, I got you.”
I have never felt more invested in a couple, like I was with Casey and Blake. I fell hard for these two right from the beginning. My love never wavered, even through all the rough spots in Bait… Although it was greatly tested! I needed them together. As scared as I was for Sail, I needed to see them through it. It was all or nothing for them and myself! Could they finally get it right? Can they forgive and forget?? Is redemption possible?  All these questions swirling through my mind. I wasn’t sure if too much damage was done…. Casey and Blake proved that if you use actions instead of just words, anything is possible. Their dialog was like medicine treating a wound. Their actions were honest, true and most importantly, mending. Proving some things in life are worth fighting for. When I was finished my heart was so full, I though it would burst. I can only imagine what Mo has in store for us in Anchor! I’m praying it is smooth sailing ahead. I will be counting the days….
KRISTINE’S REVIEW
Wow, my heart, gut and every nerve ending are on freaking fire!!  Holy crap what an emotional tornado! My poor Casey and luckiest Casey loving women!  Wow, wow, wow!!! 
M.Mabie what did you do to me?!!  I loved each and every second of it!!!   Okay so I’m gonna calm my ever loving beating heart down, and rewind back a little bit. 
Leaving my number one book of 2014 (Bait) and my number one bbf Casey Moore and what a perfect last name he has, (cause all you want is moore), made me sad and I couldn’t wait to have this second book.  This exceeded all my expectations a thousand times over!  Five stars….pfffft more like infinity stars to be exact! 
We all know from Bait how Casey and Blake got here, what an emotional crazy mess I was!  I felt every emotion they felt.  I knew what they had was more then just a fling, how they couldn’t see it, confuses the hell out of me!  Wanted to shake them so they woke the hell up, many times! 
In this most perfect second book, we see them open up, find out the reasons behind all those blinders and fears they had.  They both grow so much as adults finding their one and only true love, it wasn’t easy task and a few mistakes were made.
“We were Casey and Blake, two people simply trying to figure out the second chance we’d always been fighting for.” ~ Blake
I love these two so much, I felt like one of their best friends cheering them on to be themselves and love each other, and them hearing and listening to my every word. 
So many quotes that made me teary eyed and wanna hug any person in the room!  M.Mabie knows how to bring my mushy side out!
“I want a thousand songs with you, Casey.” ~ Blake
“You’re like the wind, and I’m like the sail. When I go against you, it’s rough, almost impossible to find my path. But when my mind finally submitted to my heart, everything was easier. And the best part was, I got you.” ~ Blake
M.Mabie brought back Betty and Lou with a bang.  With love, heartache, humor and a totally shock factor that rocked my reader socks off, this is a must read!  Casey has became my lord Casey and if your nice I may share him with you!  Just kidding, he is one I will scream off roof tops for you too meet!  
If you haven’t read Bait yet and I’ve said this so many times…..what are you waiting for?!!! You want to meet your next favorite book of the year this series is it!!  For a little fun to..pick up the What if: The Anthology, this has the novella called lure.  Read after Bait for an alternate what if…this happened this way for Casey and Blake. 
Thank you again M.Mabie for all your amazing work you bring us!  And I need Moore Lord Casey!!! 
“The best things are worth waiting a little for honeybee. Otherwise, fairy tales would start with happily ever after.” ~ Casey.
 
 

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.”

Bio

M. Mabie lives in Illinois with her husband. She is the author of the steamy comedy Fade In. Her sophomore release, Bait, is the first book in the angst-filled erotic Wake Series. She writes unconventional love stories and tries to embody “real-life romance.”
She cares about politics, but will not discuss them in public. She uses the same fork at every meal, watches Wayne’s World while cleaning, and lets her dog sleep on her head. She has always been a writer. In fact, she was born with a pen in her hand, which almost never happens. Almost.
M. Mabie usually doesn’t speak in third-person either. She promises.
