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.”

My 5 star review of Sail by M. Mabie

My poor little broken heart- death, dying, destruction- that was how I felt at the end of Bait. I wanted to scream and yell from the rooftops- eff you Blake. I hated her- legitimately hated her. And I don’t hate people (ps, these characters are so real to me, they are like people that I know- so just let me have this). And then we had to WAIT. I mean, how could Mabie do that to all of us? I wish I could read this review out loud, so that the depth of my emotion is totally conveyed. Bait has stuck with me- indefinitely, so I knew that Sail had some big girl panties to fill. Especially since Bait was so high up on my list. I did a re-read days before so I had it in my mind, it was such a mind-flick again!!! How do I let Mo’s words affect me so? How can someone I have never even met write my book wet dreams?? It’s like she knows me, it’s like she gets me- can’t we be biffle’s already??

So Sail…

Oh. My. Heart. AGAIN with the heart and the feels. I mean seriously. Jesus H. She did it again. Have you ever read a book you wanted to read SO fast and SO slow at the same time, knowing it was the last time you would read it for the first time ever again?  You had no way of taking it back, of un-remembering what it was about? Yes, this was me. So much drama to explore, so messy- and so much damn heartACHE, not just heartbreaking- like my heart actually ACHED. Sail did answer most- to- all of my questions, but now I have MANY more…

“She was terrible at loving me. Never getting it right, but she tried. She fought hard, usually with herself, and that alone gave me hope.”

While 99.9 percent of Bait was angsty and messy (still super-hot…) Sail was quite the opposite! And I fell in love with it for million different reasons. Blake finally freaking got her head on straight. Praise the LAWD GEEZUS!!! She needed to make herself happy, to put herself before anyone else in Bait, and she didn’t. She was constantly worried about how Grant felt, how her family felt- but how did she feel? Was she happy? WHO was she happy with- truly? And the only answer was Casey.

“F*ck, if she told me to be a tree, I would’ve figured out a way to sprout limbs and branches. I’d find a way. I’d be the motherf*cking king tree of all the other trees, if that was what she needed.”

 Everyone in a relationship wants things- they want honesty, truth, communication, love- not one sided, but unconditional love for one another, and I think they finally just GET IT in Sail. They get each other; they know how the other works by this point. And hell yes, people are still going to get hurt. It’s inevitable, when you start a relationship how they did. And Casey is even better than ever J Blake becomes someone I can like and respect, instead of just tolerate, for Casey’s sake.

“Just me. If I were a girl I would’ve probably made one of those squealy noises, but I’m not. I’m a dude. So instead, I high-fived nothing, midair.”

And the eff-beeyotch of them ALL, Aly- I wanted to straight throat punch her in Bait- even more in Sail. She was just the devil’s gift to earth I guess. Take your talons out of Blake’s man, OK? And just so we are clear on the hate-Mabie-character scale- Aly is off the damn charts.

I also really love the insight we get into Shane- Blake’s divorced brother. I am really interested in his story. Like super interested and hopes he has a story of his own to share. He is going through his own pain of a divorce and this book shows how he is putting himself back together.

I was absolutely enthralled with this book from start to finish. And of course in true Mo style- things are not just neatly put together at the end like an 8 piece puzzle my toddler can do. It’s like one of those puzzles that has a gazillion pieces and my kid takes one so I can NEVER FINISH IT. Anchor soon, yes please????

"The best things are worth waiting a little for, honeybee. Otherwise, fairy tales would start with happily ever after."

GAH! I died. And then was brought back to life- thanks for the ride Mabie, as always. I enjoyed it so much! And I can’t even put into words how absolutely relevant you will be in 2017- ok? So come to Kentucky, I need to squish your face, but only a little- cause I kinda like it, and the world frowns upon smothering others…

I’ve done everything in my power to make her mine and keep her.
He’s almost impossible to say no to.
She never tells me yes.
We’re always fighting.
When we’re not fighting, we’re… well… making up.

I miss her laugh the most.
I'm a liar.

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.
It was the wrong time.
