Living In The Shallows Blog Tour + Giveaway










Living in the Shallows
by Tani Hanes
Genre: NA Romance
Release Date: October 28th 2016

Summary from Goodreads:

 Aileen Foster is half Japanese, rocky smart, brilliant at the piano, and really, really poor. She also likes to keep herself to herself; “an arm’s length sort of girl, with a very long arm”, as someone describes her in Living in the Shallows. Through her professor, she gets an amazing job for the summer in Japan as an interpreter for popular boyband UK Crush, who are making a movie. 

When she meets the boys, she’s shocked by their openness, kindness, and frank physicality. She’s never met anyone like these guys before, who live so raucously, emotionally, and they awaken feelings she’s never had, particularly Theo, the acknowledged flirt and womanizer of the band. She travels with them as they film the movie, falling more and more under the spell of these amazing boys, who themselves are charmed by the presence in their midst of an intelligent, articulate female who isn’t a crazy fan; who hadn’t really even known who they were before this job:

Gethin, the ginger Welshman, who keeps his feelings to himself, but won’t hesitate to throw a punch if he thinks someone he cares about is being hurt;

Matthew, the gentle Scot, who is so beautiful that it almost hurts to look at him sometimes;

Ronan, the fun loving Irishman who loves to laugh;

Theo, the emotional English boy who loves with his whole heart, but seems to bounce from one beautiful woman to the next.

Eventually, Tink, as she’s known to the boys, realizes that she has to make some decisions about life and living that she never thought she’d have to make. Classical piano has been her whole life, and she is woefully unprepared to deal with the river of emotions released by being with these boys, Theo specifically. How can she give her heart to someone, anyone, when she never ever, thought she’d have to, let alone want to? 


Excpert: 


“No, don’t do that, little one, not yet.”

“I fell, right?” I asked. “Teddy came in, he was drunk, he said—he said some things, you got mad at him—” I looked up at Gethin, “Matty hit him, then I ran over to them and tripped and hit my head on the edge of the table.”

“What?” Matty exploded. “Tinker Bell, Theo hit you! He was aiming for me, I mean, I assume he was aiming for me—” this with another glare at Teddy, “but he took a swing as he was going down and he hit you in the face, bloodied your fucking nose!”

“Dammit, Matthew, of course I was aiming for you!” Teddy shouted. “Why would I want to hit her? You’d just clocked me in the face! She just got in between us at the wrong moment, and I was going down at the time, that’s why I swung so low! Don’t you think I’d cut my own arm off before I’d hit her?”

“Actually, I think he hit me in the jaw,” I said, again reaching for my face. “Could you take a look?” Geth leaned in, turning my head gently so he could see. 

“Jesus Christ, she has a cut, just under her ear, along her jawline, a pretty deep one, too,” he said, horrified. “Guess we didn’t notice it with all the blood from her nose, but this looks awful.” He turned and looked at Teddy, and his silence was worse than any words he could have spoken. 

“What’s wrong with you?” asked Ronan tearfully to Teddy. “









About the Author: 


My name is Tani Hanes, and I am a 51 year old substitute teacher. I’m from central California and am a recent transplant to New York City. The most important things to know about me are that I’m punctual, I love grammar and sushi, and I’m very intolerant of intolerance. The least important things to know about me are that I like to knit and I couldn’t spell “acoustic” for 40 years. I’ve wanted to write since I was ten, and I finally did it. If you want to write, don’t wait as long as I did, it’s pointless, and very frustrating!
