Oh my, I am SOOOOO excited to share this little chit chat today. I'm gonna just turn things over to Jus and the fabulous characters she brought with her.
So earlier we were over at Some Like It Paranormal talking to Dez, Kale, and Alex, about hobbies. It didn’t go so well, so I decided to try a different combination. This time, we’ll be chatting with Dez, Jade, and Kale. And instead of hobbies, let’s try talking about something near and dear to my heart. I almost became a chef, so let’s talk about foods!
Jus: *glares from Dez to Jade* I can trust you two to be civil for a little while, right?
*Dez nods while Jade simply smiles*
Jus: Okay, then. Anyone want to tell me one of their favorite? Maybe an odd combo or a comfort dish?
Jade: *eyes Dez from the corner of her eye with a wicked smile* My favorite food is kale.
Dez: *jumps up*
Jade: Oh, please. Get over it. I’m talking about the food. A cabbage-like green? Surely you’ve heard of it?
Dez: *curls her fists tight* No one’s favorite food is kale. It’s gross!
Kale: *frowns* I’m named after a gross food?
Jade: Don’t listen to her, Kale. You’re culinary namesake is awesome. Kale is hearty and strong, and used for decoration purposes. It’s pretty. *bats her eyes* Like you.
Kale: *doesn’t appear convinced* But, it’s not a normal name?
Dez: Normal is boring. *puts her arm around Kale and pulls him close* You have a unique name.
Jade: Well, not totally unique. I mean, everyone is named for something. Kale, for an awesome food. Me for a beautiful and rare stone, and Dez… *smiles sweetly at Dez* Well, you’re named for an evil corporation, right. Sucks to be you, huh?
Kale: Weren’t we supposed to be talking about food?
Dez: *takes a step closer to Jade* I think now is the perfect time to test out my M-80 theory…
Annnd never mind. These little chit-chats probably aren’t a good idea…

He flashed me a lopsided grin and stepped through the metal rungs to the inside hollow. Poking his head back through he bars, he kissed me. Not a quick peck on the cheek, either. No, kisses from Kale were enough to make a porn star blush. (Page 4)
See! That was just page 4!! You'll see my review soon.
When a Six saved Kale’s life the night of Sumrun, she warned there would be consequences. A trade-off. Something taken for the life they gained. But Dez never imagined she’d lose the one thing she’d give anything to keep… And as if it’s not enough Dez finds her immunity to Kale fading, the Six brought in to help Kale learn to control his killer touch starts drooling on him the moment they meet. Worse than that? Jade can touch Kale. But bimbo Barbie is the least of Dez’s problems.
After Dez and Kale got away at Sumrun, her father lost not only his most powerful weapon but an important piece of the Supremacy project. Forced by Denazen to remedy the situation, he poisons Dez and offers her a choice—surrender to Denazen for the cure…or die. Determined to find a solution that doesn’t involve being bagged and tagged—or losing someone she loves— Dez keeps the poison a secret. But when a rash of Denazen attacks hit a little too close to home, Dez is convinced there’s a traitor among them. Jade.
Sacrifices, broken promises, and secrets. Dez will have to lay it all on the line if there’s any hope of proving Jade’s guilt before they all end up Residents of Denazen. Or worse, dead…
JUS ACCARDO spent her childhood reading and learning to cook. Determined to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps as a chef, she applied and was accepted to the Culinary Institute of America. At the last minute, she realized her path lay with fiction, not food, and passed on the spot to pursue writing. Jus is the author of YA paranormal romance and urban fantasy fiction.
A native New Yorker, she lives in the middle of nowhere with her husband, three dogs, and sometimes guard bear, Oswald. Her first book, Touch was released in November 2011 from Entangled Publishing. She is currently working on the next book in the Denazen series.
