Hey people! I'm so honoured to be participating in the Authors are Rockstars tour hosted by the awesome Jaime @ Two Chicks on Books, Rachel @ Fiktshun and Mindy @ Magical Urban Fantasy Reads. Come check out the full tour schedule here!
Why do I consider Tara Fuller a rockstar?
Ever since I read Inbetween and Blurred, I completely fell in love with the beautiful world Tara created in her books, as well as the incredible characters. And come on, Finn and Cash? Tara creates some of the best boys I've read about! She has this distinct way of writing that just captures you immediately, and once you're drawn into the book, you can't get out until you finish it. And you wouldn't want to, either! Tara really makes me care about her characters, and love them too. Emma and Anaya are both so strong in their own way, and they have two amazing guys to keep them that way. I'd read anything written by Tara, because I know I'll love it regardless!

And now get ready for a little treat...
Character Interview with Cash
Richa: Hey Cash, it's so amazing to have you here on City of Books! Just out of curiosity, what does your t-shirt say right now?
Cash: Thanks for having me! Let’s see… ah. “Always be yourself. Unless you can be batman. Then always be batman.” Good message, don’t you think? ;)
Richa: Definitely! And I completely agree. Okay, tell us something no one else knows about you.
Cash: Okay, I’ll tell you this if you promise not to tell anyone. I may have actually liked…The Notebook. Though I would never admit that to Em. She’d never let me live it down.
Richa: Whoa, I wasn't expecting that! I haven't even seen The Notebook. Don't worry, your secret's safe with me. Now, describe your perfect date.
Cash: In the summer they put up this big projection screen down by the Lake. I always thought that would be the perfect date. Lay out a picnic blanket under the stars and find way to avoid actually watching the movie. Sounds pretty awesome to me.
Richa: Do you have a favorite song? If so, what is it?
Cash: I have lots, but one song I’m really into right now is Radioactive by Imagine Dragons.
Richa: YES! I was completely obsessed with that song just a few weeks ago! *fistbumps* Anyway. How did you realize you started falling for Anaya?
Cash: I figured we get down to the hard questions soon enough. You know, it’s hard to pinpoint, but I’d say the day of my Dad’s funeral. I felt like she showed me a part of her that nobody else got to see. And she didn’t do it for her. She did it for me. Trying to help me find a way to put the stuff twisting me up inside to rest. It made me want to know more. It made me not want to let go.
Richa: Aww, that's like the sweetest thing I've heard! Time for a little risky question. What do you think of Finn? (Don't worry, I promise I won't tell)
Cash: Ha! I’ll be honest. In the beginning I didn’t trust him. I couldn’t stand him. But I think we’ve ironed out a lot of the problems between us. Me dealing with my feelings for Em, helped with that. He’s a good guy though. Not sure that we’ll ever be BFF’s, but I’ve got respect for him.
Richa: How about a few this or that questions...
Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate
Hip-hop or Rock? Rock
Dogs or cats? Dogs
Movie night or club-hopping? Movie Night
Ocean or mountains? Mountains
Oh my god, Cash. I think I love you. Those would be my answers exactly! We should totally be friends now.
And that's it for today! Thanks so much for being here, Cash :)

About Inbetween (Kissed by Death #1)
Since the car crash that took her father’s life three years ago, Emma’s life has been a freaky — and unending — lesson in caution. Surviving “accidents” has taken priority over being a normal seventeen-year-old, so Emma spends her days taking pictures of life instead of living it. Falling in love with a boy was never part of the plan. Falling for a reaper who makes her chest ache and her head spin? Not an option.
It’s not easy being dead, especially for a reaper in love with a girl fate has put on his list not once, but twice. Finn’s fellow reapers give him hell about spending time with Emma, but Finn couldn’t let her die before, and he’s not about to let her die now. He will protect the girl he loves from the evil he accidentally unleashed, even if it means sacrificing the only thing he has left…his soul.
About Blurred (Kissed by Death #2)
Cash is haunted by things. Hungry, hollow things. They only leave him alone when Anaya, Heaven’s beautiful reaper, is around. Cash has always been good with girls, but Anaya isn’t like the others. She’s dead. And with his deteriorating health, Cash might soon be as well.
Anaya never breaks the rules, but the night of the fire she recognized part of Cash’s soul—and doomed him to something worse than death. Cash’s soul now resides in an expired body, making him a shadow walker—a rare, coveted being that can walk between worlds. A being creatures of the underworld would do anything to get their hands on.
The lines between life and death are blurring, and Anaya and Cash find themselves falling helplessly over the edge. Trapped in a world where the living don’t belong, can Cash make it out alive?
