Pretty sure everyone knows by now that I love New Adult. Like LOVE the genre. There’s something about the freedom, the mistakes, the awkwardness of that age that entrances me. One of the first books I read in New Adult was A. Meredith Walter’s BAD REP, which I drooled and swooned over until 4 am or so, and believe me, the 6 am alarm didn’t care that I was book-hungover. So imagine my excitement when I was able to grab my now-agency-sister’s ARC of PERFECT REGRET and read it before it was released? YES PLEASE!

Here’s a little bit about my awesome agency-sister, A. Meredith Walters!
The New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Contemporary and Paranormal romance including The Find You in the Dark series, Bad Rep and its upcoming sequel.
A. Meredith spent ten years as a counselor for at risk teens and children. First working at a Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault program and then later a program for children with severe emotional and mental health issues. Her former clients and their stories continue to influence every aspect of her writing.
When not writing (or being tortured with all manner of beauty products at the hand of her very imaginative and extremely girly 6 year old daughter), she is eating chocolate, watching reality television that could rot your brain and reading a smutty novel or two.
