New Release - Honesty (Mark of Nexus 2.5) by Carrie Butler

Woot! It's release day for Carrie Butler's Honesty, Mark of Nexus 2.5—Cole's story. I had the pleasure of reading an ARC, and I loved every minute of it.

I'll still keep a hypodermic of Haldol and a straightjacket stashed within reach whenever Cole's around, but I like him much better now. :P

Cole Blake is more than just a roguish ladies’ man. He’s also a dedicated worker—so dedicated, in fact, that he’s willing to blackmail his boss with a falsified sex tape in order to keep his job. And his proactive efforts don’t end there. After hours, he uses his Dynari abilities to moonlight as a vigilante, keeping his neighborhood safe from drunks, dealers, and would-be thieves.

Until a mistake stops him dead in his super-accelerated tracks.

Now burdened with the closest thing he’s ever had to a conscience, Cole struggles to justify his once-reckless actions. It’d be all too easy to give in to his darker impulses, especially with ERA making dangerous advances toward their goal of revolution, but embracing that hatred could jeopardize the few relationships he actually cares about—including his pursuit of the saintly Rachel Ranford. No, in order to keep everyone safe, he’ll have to come clean about his warring compulsions and ask for help... before his dark side takes over.

Title: Honesty
Series: Mark of Nexus - Book 2.5
Category: New Adult (NA)
Genre: Urban Fantasy (UF)


Coming soon!

Note: This title is best enjoyed after Strength (Mark of Nexus #1) 
and Courage (Mark of Nexus #2). 
Carrie daydreamed her way through college—until they thrust a marketing degree into her hands, slapped a summa cum laude seal on the corner, and booted her out into a less-than-stellar job market. Instead of panicking at the prospect of unemployment, she used her Midwestern logic to steer into the skid and point her life in the direction she really wanted to go: writing out those daydreams.

Her passion for New Adult fiction led her to co-found NA Alley—one of the first websites dedicated to the category. A year later, she started a design business specializing in graphics for the publishing industry, called Forward Authority. Her Mark of Nexus series has appeared on Amazon bestselling, top-rated, and hot new release lists in various genres.
