Blog Tour ~ Toxic by Jus Accardo Character Chat + Giveaway!

I'm super excited to be part of the blog tour for Toxic today! I love Kale! So I was even more ecstatic to find out I will have Kale, Dez, and Alex on my blog today!
Jus Accardo will be discussing hobbies with them so check it out and be sure to enter for the amazing swag pack!

We’re here today with Dez, Kale, and Alex, to talk a little about hobbies. Fall is here, and personally, I love to bake. Now that the weather is cooling off, I can turn my oven on without melting the house. Apple turnovers—here I come!
Anyone want to tell me one of their favorite pastimes?
Or, maybe something they’d like to learn to do? Personally, I’d love to take up skiing—but I’m afraid I’d break something Important due to my serious lack of grace. Kale—you’ve seen a lot of new things lately. How about you go first?
Kale: Kissing Dez.
Alex: *rolls eyes* Seriously? That’s, like, your answer to everything. It’s getting old, man.
Kale: *grins* Not for me.
Alex: There must be something else you’d like to do. Something you’d like to learn? *flashes Kale a wicked grin* Oh! I’ve got it! Stick a light up your ass and stand in the middle of a picnic table and you’d make an awesome bug zapper!
Dez: *steps between the two boys and turns to Kale as he starts toward Alex* Kale, didn’t you mention you were interested in hockey?
Kale: Oh, yeah! I saw Dax watching it on television. People flying across a sheet of ice wearing odd looking shoes. It looked fun.
Alex: *blinks* Hockey? Really?
Dez: *ignores Alex and smiles* I think that’s my answer, too. Hockey. We could learn together.
Alex: *snorts* Oh, yeah. I can see it now. Dez on ice skates with a hockey stick. I pity the other team.
Dez: *shoots Alex a look of mock surprise* Me? I’m a delicate flower!
Alex: Yeah. A flower with thorns. As for me, when I’m not out charming the pants off the ladies—
Dez: *snorts*
Alex: *glares at Dez and continues* —I like to rebuild old cars.
Dez: *stares open-mouthed* Since when?
Alex: It’s a new hobby.
Dez: *chuckles* And how’s that working out for ya? You can’t even change the batteries in the TV remote!
Kale: *shoots Alex a superior grin* I’m still learning, but even I know that’s sad.
Alex: *takes a step toward Kale* Wanna know what I think is sad?
Annnd we’ll end it there. I never learn. These chats with Alex, Kale, and Dez never end well… Maybe I should try a new combo? Head over to Stuck In Books to check it out!

Toxic (Denazen #2)

When a Six saved Kale's life the night of Sumrun, she warned there would be consequences. A trade-off. Something taken for the life they gained. But Dez never imagined she'd lose the one thing she'd give anything to keep... And as if it's not enough Dez finds her immunity to Kale fading, the Six brought in to help Kale learn to control his killer touch starts drooling on him the moment they meet. Worse than that? Jade can touch Kale. But bimbo Barbie is the least of Dez's problems. After Dez and Kale got away at Sumrun, her father lost not only his most powerful weapon but an important piece of the Supremacy project. Forced by Denazen to remedy the situation, he poisons Dez and offers her a choice--surrender to Denazen for the cure...or die. Determined to find a solution that doesn't involve being bagged and tagged--or losing someone she loves--Dez keeps the poison a secret. But when a rash of Denazen attacks hit a little too close to home, Dez is convinced there's a traitor among them. Jade. Sacrifices, broken promises, and secrets. Dez will have to lay it all on the line if there's any hope of proving Jade's guilt before they all end up Residents of Denazen. Or worse, dead...

  19. Interesting. Since i had not read this series yet, I was lost to who is who. I have the other books, just not Toxic yet. Was waiting to start the series until I got it, as I do not like either waiting for anotehr book to come out, or until I get the money to buy it when it is out, lol. So I waited.
