Snapped Series Tour, Excerpt & Giveaway!

Snapped Series 
Ketley Allison
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


“We have someone who saw you struggling with the deceased before using that knife. Your best friend, and our eye witness.”

In nine weeks Charlie Miller’s life goes from high-rolling perfection to a crypt of sin. All it takes is one night, one blade, and her boyfriend, best friend and new friends all either end up as suspects or dead.

Nate Westcott, a pierced, tattooed, charismatic lawyer, is a man she can’t have—but a seductive danger she can’t ignore. He’s cocky, infuriating, brilliant and wrong, yet he makes her question whether she really is the good girl she wants to be or more like the selfish killer everyone thinks she is.

And her body wants him in ways she’s not supposed to crave.

As the weeks close in, cracks start forming in her everyday world of pro football golden boys, law school domination and New York City nightlife. Everyone she cares about is at risk because one of them doesn’t love Charlie back. In fact, they want her out of the way. Disposed of. Set up.

One more step, and all Charlie has to do is fall through.

Week 1 starts now.


Snapped is Ketley’s New Adult Contemporary series with all the romance you’d expect, but the killer—and lovers—that you don’t.



by Ketley Allison 

Famous boyfriend, penthouse on Park Avenue, 
full scholarship and best friend along for the ride?

A smartass drummer boy, dark obsession and a hint of betrayal?




Charlie Miller’s life in New York City is just getting started.

by Ketley Allison

Charlie's first love is perfect. He's kindhearted, the sex is great, and he only wants her despite the spotlight that brings him fame. Her life is wonderful, filled with purpose and cushioned by the man of her dreams.

Something is wrong here.

Her instincts are kicking in, telling her that Slade isn't the man she thinks he is, but her heart is at war. She loves him, despite the attraction that sparks between her and Nate, the lonely, magnetic man who has popped into her life solely to piss her off. Slade loves her, despite the bright cameras and hot women and the ongoing pressure to succeed.

Doesn't he love her?

Slade's getting closer to Charlie's new friend, a girl who blushes in his presence and changes face as soon as he leaves. Reagan seems sweet and everyone tells Charlie she's adorable, cute...innocent as an angel. But Charlie's starting to see her differently. Problem is, no one believes her.

Simple jealousy, or a warning of what's to come?

Someone's plotting a murder, and its execution hinges on Charlie's choice. If she turns the wrong way, ignores the right signals, and chooses the wrong man, well...

The ultimate sin will result.

by Ketley Allison

Sometimes your first love doesn’t equal your true love.

Jason Sladerman is Charlie’s one. For him, she would adjust to a new city, deal with sudden fame and fandom, and change her life. But never did she think she’d have to tolerate sudden obsession.

Yet that is what Reagan Wescott feels for Charlie’s man. She infiltrated Charlie’s life, made her believe in their friendship, but only to get closer to Slade. Charlie knows, and is finally starting to trust her instincts, that Reagan is manic over him, stalking him, sick over him.

Until the email.

Now Charlie doesn’t know who’s true and who’s false, who loves her and who hates her. Her one true friend, Lara, is too preoccupied with her own love life to notice Charlie’s faltering. Slade’s too involved in proving his innocence to notice the danger. Reagan doesn’t care about anyone but Slade and will do anything to get to him. And Nate wants Charlie so much he turns a blind eye to everything but her.

Their misguided dreams are their greatest mistake. Murder’s on the horizon, and while everyone holds on tight to their sacred wishes, someone uses that chance to sneak by.

And kill.

“I saw it in his eyes.” I crossed my arms. “They’re going after me. I seriously think I’m their top suspect. Didn’t you see the way they looked at me just now? And the questions. It’s because of the fight. I should’ve called the police!” Fingers tangled in my hair, I strode back and forth. “Why didn’t I press charges when I could? How could I have listened to
you over something like that? And who in God’s name killed? Because it wasn’t me!” I smashed my pointer finger into my chest. “It wasn't me!”

The police have their prime suspect. More importantly, they have motive.

SACRED had you reeling, but SUSPECT will have you desperate to figure out the ultimate truth.

Who snapped?

by Ketley Allison

“So that’s it? You just never want to see me anymore?”

I want to see you every day. “We can still call each other. I want to help you find answers, I’ll never stop with that. To absolve not only me, but you, too. But that means we have to focus on what’s important, and it’s not this.” I stumbled back when he moved closer still.


“Not this,” I repeated.

Truth cannot conquer lies. It can’t prove Charlie’s innocence. It sure as hell doesn’t prevent the police from closing in. With clues that are leading straight to her, the only thing Charlie knows for sure is that no one is without their own sins—including the man she cares about the most.

Will love turn out to be the ultimate distraction? Or will it be the one weapon to shatter perceptions and spare Charlie’s life?

SACRED: Part 4
“I don’t know what to fucking believe anymore.” He laughed. “Tonight blew my mind wide open. So much that—yeah, okay, you picked me. Fabulous. But there’s this…Char, I…” He dug both hands into his hair, scratching. “I don’t know if I want to fight for you anymore.”
My chest was wrenched open. “Slade, no.”
“I’m exhausted. Disturbed. So gutted and miserable. All these weeks I’ve been battling so hard for you, telling myself there’s no love like ours, that we could survive the accusations, Nate putting the moves on you—we could win. But then tonight happened, and…” He held a hand up, examining his swollen, clotted knuckles. “I cracked. I gave up. We’re damaged goods, but do you still believe in us? Do you?”
“I do,” I said, moving closer. “In every moment. Slade, you’re right, we’ve gone through something terrible, but we’re still here. I love you.”
He’d pressed his hands to my cheeks as I spoke. “I misread the situation, and I’m sorry I didn’t run to you first. I should’ve known you’d never…tell it to me again.”
“Tell me you love me. That you’ll stay with me no matter what I’ve done.”
“I love you,” I said, on shakier ground. “And it’ll withstand a lot, but explain to me what you mean. What have you done?”
“Not that. I swear.” His fingers dug into my cheekbones. “The lies, though, it sent me spiraling tonight. Someone I tried to help, to be there for, has infested my life.
In that, I understood. But his voice was so unsteady, a vague suggestion of the strength of his usual baritone, that he couldn’t be giving me everything. “Slade, what else happened tonight?”
For a split second he held his breath. Then he said, “I’ve told you everything.”
“You haven’t told me how you got home.” You’ve been a stranger to me tonight. “What’s going on?”
“Nothing.” His hands settled on my shoulders. “It’s in the past. And now we’re not the same people anymore.”
“You talk like we might not come back from this, but you’re wrong. It won’t happen, not if you’re honest with me. Yes, I hesitated; I wasn’t sure if we’d work. I know we’re not perfect. It’s been an exhausting fight. But the last thing I wanted to do was just give up. This relationship deserves all the fight in me before I could ever walk away. And I couldn’t. When everything was said and done, with Nate, with Reagan, I just couldn’t. You’re worth it, Slade. We’re worth it.”
“You are, sweetheart.” He laid his forehead against mine. “But I’m not.”
Slade,” I moaned. My bones slipped out of my skin, and I couldn’t hold myself up anymore. “I don’t understand what you’re saying. Tell me what you mean, what the punches through the walls out there mean, all of it. Please.”

“Charlie.” He clasped my arms, holding me upright. “I wish I could lie to you. I don’t want…please, don’t make me responsible for those tears.” His eyes welled up. “Something happened tonight. Something irreparable. And I can’t—I can’t come back from it.”

Ketley Allison began her career by writing books as birthday presents for her friends (with her friend as the main character and opposite a super sexy lead, of course) before ending it in order to walk down a path she thought she was supposed to follow.

The writing bug never left her–and, in fact, would often bleed into the official papers she was supposed to write–so now Ketley’s putting down her suit and finally following her dream. While her friends are no longer the stars of her books, she still throws in bits and pieces of them into each and every one of her characters.

As a result, her books tend to focus a lot on friendships as well as love, because let’s be honest, friends are what really get you through–especially when your epic love turns into epic heartbreak.
