Criminal (Giveaway)

Criminal book cover Terra Elan McVoy
Criminal by Terra Elan McVoy
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: May 7, 2013

Nikki’s life is far from perfect, but at least she has Dee. Her friends tell her that Dee is no good, but Nikki can’t imagine herself without him. He’s hot, he’s dangerous, he has her initials tattooed over his heart, and she loves him more than anything. There’s nothing Nikki wouldn’t do for Dee. Absolutely nothing.

So when Dee pulls Nikki into a crime—a crime that ends in murder—Nikki tells herself that it’s all for true love. Nothing can break them apart. Not the police. Not the arrest that lands Nikki in jail. Not even the investigators who want her to testify against him.

But what if Dee had motives that Nikki knew nothing about? Nikki’s love for Dee is supposed to be unconditional…but even true love has a limit. And Nikki just might have reached hers.

I haven't had the opportunity to read Criminal yet, but I believe it's going to be a book that I absolutely love. Plus, that cover is definitely a standout! I thought I'd point you all in the direction of a review from Estelle that will probably convince you to pick up the book, as it did for me. And lucky for you, there's a giveaway today!
