Book Two in The Wake Series
by M. Mabie
Blog Tour 13th – 25th April

This isn’t just a two-year long one-night stand. It’s my life.
This is my life. Our life. It isn’t just some careless affair.
I’ve made the worst decisions a woman could, but I’ll earn my second chance.
She can try keeping all the guilt for herself, but I’m just as much to blame.
Loving Casey wasn’t my biggest mistake. Fighting it for so long was.
I’ll show her how fearless our love makes me. I’ll protect her torn heart.
He still has magic in his eyes. He’s the man who makes me happy.
Her voice still brings me to my knees. She says my name like it’s sacred.
I live for the day when I’m his. To take care of him. To love him the way he deserves.
I can’t wait to be all she needs. I can give her a happy life, security and so much love.
Sometimes two ships never meet in the night, but ours did.
Sometimes the water is rough. It beats you all to hell until you have no choice but get stronger.
Our love story reads more like a tragedy, but to me it’s clean and pure.
Let them point their fingers. Without a love like ours, they haven’t really lived. I pity them.
I’m a cheating wife and a villain. I am his honeybee.
I’m a snake in the grass and I sleep best when I’m lying next to his wife.
I want to be his everything.
I’m nothing without her anyway.
This isn’t even close to over.
It’ll never be over.

Sail is the second book in the continuing Wake Series. For more information on the first book in the series see the link for Bait below.

The room was dimly lit with the few lights we’d left on. It was late, and even though I was tired from travel and just life in general, I craved the feel of him.
Our suite was warm, void of chill or worry. In the bedroom, we didn’t bother with a light, knowing where everything was by memory.
He guided me to bed. He let my hair down and brushed it off my shoulders, and then he held me close and pressed his lips to mine. Casey laid us down so softly I barely knew we were moving until I felt the fluffy pillow under my head.
I deepened our kiss and moaned when his body pressed against mine.
“We’re not going to have sex tonight, Blake,” he said breathlessly around my lips. Why? I wanted him so badly. Just like that. Slow and easy.
I tried to evict thoughts of uncertainty from my mind, but they snuck in with his words. His behavior was contradictory. He’d shown me nothing but affection and care since we saw each other in the airport.
Why wouldn’t he make love to me?
Old demons felt the need to speak up.
What if he doesn’t want you after the chase? What if he only likes the thrill?
I felt my body begin to tense for the first time since we’d arrived. The hands that had been wandering across his back stilled. The leg I had started to wrap around his waist slowly began falling to the side.
“Hey, where are you going,” he said, as he kissed my neck and ran a hand through my hair to the nape of my neck.
“I don’t understand,” I contested. “I want you.” He shifted his weight and I felt how hard he was against my inner thigh. He was definitely turned on. So what was his deal? “Don’t you want me, too?”
“Mmmm,” he breathed near my ear. “God, I want you.” His big right hand hitched my leg back around his hip and he palmed my ass, bringing my dress up to my waist in the process and exposing my pale pink underwear. “I’ve wanted you day and night for so long now. I don’t know how to not want you.” He spoke between kisses and rubbed his nose along my clavicle. Then he bit me gently at the crook of my neck. “But there’ve been too many times I’ve let that need for you cloud my focus.”
“But I—”
“No, Blake. Not tonight. Tonight, I’m going to make you come and then I’m going to sleep next to you. I’m going to fall asleep with you in my arms. All those nights I missed out on holding you and feeling you next to me. I stole them from both of us being scared and stubborn.
I have to be better this time. I see all that you’re doing and I’m so damn proud of you, honeybee,” he said calmly. “But I want more than just physical things from you. It isn’t that I don’t want you. Fuck, do I want you. But I need all of you. Not just this.” He moved against my center and I knew I had to change his mind. After hearing those sweet
words, I had to have him and I wasn’t going to fight fair.
“Please, Casey. Fuck me.”
He growled and pressed his forehead to my chest. “You’re evil.” He laughed. I wished he sounded defeated, but mostly he sounded amused. “You’re not making it easy for me to be noble.”
“Don’t be noble then,” I said as I wound my arms around him and
pulled him closer to me.
“If you knew what I was thinking about doing to you, you’d know I wasn’t.” He rolled partially over toward the center of the bed and ran his hand under my dress and up to my breast.
“Then tell me,” I shamelessly suggested.
The tips of his fingers roamed down my stomach and my pulse sped up. His fingers slid under the sheer fabric of my underwear and my breaths came in spurts as I mentally begged him to keep going. I was so wound up.
“Don’t worry. I told you I’d take care of you.”


Sail was my most anticipated book of 2015. I. Could. Not. Wait. I stalked Mo like a moth to a light. I HAD to have this book and it did not disappoint.

Sail picks up right where Bait left off. If you haven't read Bait, stop what you are doing and read it right now. You MUST read this series in order and I promise you you want to read this series. Bait left us with a cliffy. The kind of cliffy that makes you want to throw your kindle because you could not believe that it ended that way. I mean really Mo?!

You don't have to wait long to find out what is going to happen with Lou and Betty. I was rooting for them the entire time I was reading Bait and even though their relationship (was it even a relationship?) was unconventional I still wanted them to find their way back to each other. They just work together. The are like peanut butter and jelly. Carrots and ranch. Sail gave me all the feels I was craving and I loved every minute of it.

There wasn't as much angst and back and forth in Sail as I was anticipating. That actually bummed me out a little bit. That was what I loved so much about Bait. The angst and not knowing what was going to happen next. You think you have it figured out and then bam Mo takes you in a completely different direction.

Casey is still as sweet as ever and I loved the man he became in Sail. Seeing him fight for what was his made me cheer him on even more. I needed Casey and Blake to figure things out. I needed them to fight for each other.

I actually liked Blake more in Sail. There were times she annoyed me in Bait but overall I loved her character growth in Sail. She finally decided to start living for her and not for what she thought everyone else wanted from her. I loved that.

Let's talk about Grant very briefly. He doesn't deserve much time because I HATE THAT MAN. It's always the quiet ones that do something you don't see coming. I can't wait to find out what happens to him in Anchor. I hope Mo does Blake justice because she deserves it.

Overall I love this series. I love everything about it and I shout it from the rooftops to anyone who will listen. If someone asks me for a book recommendation this series is the first one out of my mouth. If you love angst, and feels, and a swoon worthy man with curly hair you just can't help but want to run your hands through then this is the series for you. I promise it won't disappoint.

Last year I read this little book called Bait. It was just....well it was amazing. M. Mabie left us with a (not so) nice cliffy and I NEEDED more. I counted down the months, the weeks, the days, and the hours until Sail was on my kindle. When it was finally there I couldn't wait to dive in. I needed to know what happened to Casey and Blake.

Let me start off by saying that M. Mabie doesn't disappoint in Sail. I will say that Sail was a little different than what I was expecting. Bait was full of angst pretty much from the beginning to the end. Sail not so much. Bait was about 2 ships passing in opposite directions and Sail is about those 2 ships finally traveling in the same direction fighting together for the love that they both desperately want.

Blake has finally made her mind up with what she wants. She had decided to live the life that she wants, with who she wants, and not what she feels others think she should live. Her character has grown so much since the beginning of Bait and I actually liked her so much more in Sail. I was cheering for her through most of the book. There were several times in Bait where I wanted to slap her.

Casey.....what can I say. He is just as swoon worthy. He has decided to take the bulls by the horn and fight for what he wants. What he always wanted but didn't know how to really fight for it.

If you were hoping for a nice little cliffy like we had in Bait you will be highly disappointed. Sail wraps up very nicely and will lead us into the 3rd and final book in Blake and Casey's story. One book I will be counting the days down for.

He was trouble from the start, but I couldn't resist.

I’ve done everything in my power to make her mine and keep her.
He’s almost impossible to say no to.

We’re always fighting.
When we’re not fighting, we’re… well… making up.
He makes me laugh so hard.
I miss her laugh the most.
I'm a liar.
She knows the truth, but won’t admit it.
Sometimes, I wish I'd never met him.
I wish we could meet all over again. I'd do better.
His sweet girlfriend knows.
The guy she’s with is a fool.

She doesn’t love me enough to choose us.
It was the wrong place.

M. Mabie lives in Illinois with her husband. She is the author of the steamy comedy Fade In. Her sophomore release, Bait, is the first book in the angst-filled erotic Wake Series. She writes unconventional love stories and tries to embody "real-life romance."
She cares about politics, but will not discuss them in public. She uses the same fork at every meal, watches Wayne's World while cleaning, and lets her dog sleep on her head. She has always been a writer. In fact, she was born with a pen in her hand, which almost never happens. Almost.
M. Mabie usually doesn't speak in third-person either. She promises.
