Blog Tour: Be My Downfall by Lyla Payne - Guest Post + Giveaway!

Today, I have a guest post from Lyla Payne, and it is 10 Places Toby Would Like to Take Kennedy!!!!!

10 Places Toby Would Like to Take Kennedy!

This one is a little bit hard, since both of them are pretty well-traveled kids! They have their favorite places, but there are some spots that are special to Toby, special to Kennedy, or meaningful to their separate and joint journeys that he would love to visit with her at his side.

1.       Wilmington, NC: It’s where he grew up, and his favorite place in the state.

2.     Cary, NC: His hometown!

3.     Washington, DC: He has a fantasy about showing her off in an uber-fancy dress at some kind of political or fundraising gala

4.     Los Angeles, CA: Toby wants to introduce her to his friend Laine, and the city that houses the industry he loves and wants to be a part of.

5.     To dinner, at the place they had their first date, at least once a month.

6.     The last place he saw his brother alive.

7.     The last place she saw her parents alive.

8.     Somewhere she doesn’t speak the language – maybe Japan.

9.     A place neither of them have ever visited, so they can explore it together.

10. New Orleans, LA: It’s somewhere Kennedy was happy once, and a place that meant a lot to her mother. Toby wants to see it through her eyes.

Toby Wright has always prided himself on being one of the most normal guys at Whitman University. He loves his parents, has a great job lined up after graduation, and with the exception of attempting to cross the unbalanced Sebastian Blair sophomore year, has kept his nose pretty clean.

But the rich never have empty closets, and memories long stashed away come spilling free when notorious party girl Kennedy Gilbert almost dies in his bathroom.

Nobody really knows how Kennedy manages to stay in good standing at Whitman–she never goes to class, doesn’t pretend to care about her future, and as far as people can tell, is never sober. This isn’t her first meeting with a stomach pump, but it is the first time she’s woken up to Toby’s concerned brown eyes. Despite the fact that she prefers life without friends, he gets under her skin with his insistence on playing her guardian angel.

No one knows better than Toby that people can only be saved if they want to be, but the realization that she has no one else draws him back into the shadows of Kennedy’s life–and eventually into her bed. But she long ago came to terms with a truth that Toby refuses to accept: she doesn’t want to be rescued, she only wants to forget.

Unwilling to give up on her, Toby’s dragged under by this broken girl and her dark, twisted Whitman University he never guessed existed. If he struggles to the surface, he’ll abandon someone he loves for the second time in his life. If he doesn’t, it won’t be long until they both drown.

About Lyla Payne:

I’ve long had a love of stories. A few years ago decided to put them down on the page, and even though I have a degree in film and television, novels were the creative outlet where I found a home. I’ve published Young Adult under a different name, but when I got the idea for Broken at Love (my first New Adult title), I couldn’t wait to try something new – and I’m hooked.  In my spare time I watch a ton of tennis (no surprise, there), play a ton of tennis, and dedicate a good portion of brain power to dreaming up the next fictitious bad boy we’d all love to meet in real life.
