New Release! A must read...Adrenaline by: Sunniva Dee Giveaway, excerpt, review!!

Book & Author Details:

Adrenaline by Sunniva Dee
Publication date: April 30th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance


Life’s the shit!
Chicks squeal over how wild and yummy I am, play their silly games trying to tie me down. But I’m free as a bird, doing what makes life life: kicking extreme-sport-ass!
I base jump, snowboard, bungee jump. I do anything for the rush.
Then, Ingela blows into town for college—a cool Swedish blast of trouble. Foulmouthed and runway-gorgeous, the girl seeps in like poison and melts the freaking brain.
To Ingela I am what chicks were to me: pastime, leisure, entertainment, pleasure. She’s killing me, and I’m digging it. There’s a new rush in town!Yeah, I hunt down my highs, and now the chase is on. I’ll catch her soon enough, just, what’s the deal with her ex?
With Ingela, sex is a dance. A slow tango where skin flows over skin. It is slick readiness, a quiet welcome. It’s smooth, warm, right, and all wrong.
On and off. On and off. Again, she’s wrecked with grief. It’s a reminder of how I destroy her, how crushed relationships shouldn’t be revived.
We’ve done this for years, now, but clearly we’re in for more.


My Review (ARC provided)
5++++++++ stars!
Because I don't have to check a box with stars and it's my blog I'm rating it 5 plus stars. I fell in love with these characters. I absolutely adored this book. I gobbled it up and wanted more. This series is wonderful, I really didn't think Sunniva could beat Leon's Way but WOW this book just did it for me. From the humor to the emotion and overall realness of the characters. One thing I love about Sunniva is that her work is original her NA novels are not typical or cliche, they don't fall into a category where you know where it's headed. I guess what I'm trying to say is they aren't your stereotypical romance.

There are times when I'm reviewing a book and I feel my words or my review doesn't do that book justice, this is one of those times. I have been struggling to try and write how I truly felt about it but it's hard for me to I really hope it does

Cameron (H)-I wanted to meet him, I loved the heck out of this crazy, cute, lovable guy. He's addicted to extreme sports, addicted to the high he gets, the adrenaline he feels, that powerful chemical that makes him lose his "head." He lives for it and for the rush.

Ingela (h)-Tough, funny girl but so broken and worn down. She's addicted to her past, a love that really doesn't exist anymore but she is convinced it does and it's real. Really she's just addicted to that same chemical the adrenaline that surges inside of her every time she sees him (Bo). Ingela is so addicted to the high that she gets she brushes off the low. Ingela gets so low every time they part and she welcomes it when it happens she knows it's going to happen but the high is too incredible to resist.

Cam and Ingela both the best of friends and both mutually attracted to each other. Can they make a casual relationship work? Will they be able to fight their addiction?

Ingela had flaws but she was just so likable. It was like she loved too much. The love took everything in her and destroyed her but she was this funny tough girl on the outside. She was passionate but it wasn't over the top, it was real. Cam too, he kept doing things recklessly while healing and sustaining other injuries and repeating the process. They both kept repeating the process and I wanted to give them a good shake every so often.

Bo-I really didn't know what to think about him. I thought he was manipulating the situation at first but as you read you realize he's not a bad guy and really wants Ingela to be happy. I'm anxious to read more about him.

If you read Leon's way you know the cutie pie Lyric which we get throughout the book he brought light to the story and made me smile. The constant misuse of American slang or curse words by Ingela and Cam's smart ass remarks  made for a humorous read, it was great because it wasn't  necessarily a language barrier but a definite confusion of words between her and Cam, which was one of the things Cam loved about Ingela.

Sunniva is definitely one of my favorite authors, I love the way she writes and brings passion, humour, and emotion to her characters. Sunniva can write the crap out of a sex scene without it being too much. They are steamy without every single detail, it gives the reader a little to imagine which I appreciate and I don't feel like I'm reading porn.

I really hope this book and series gets the recognition it deserves!

I honestly can say there wasn't one thing I disliked about the book. This whole series is great and I highly recommend all the books.

The chase is over. Right here, right now, this is it. Even if it only lasts thirty seconds, the rush of what I’m about to do floods me and makes me feel. It’s so intense, every muscle in my body goes rigid with anticipation.

The air is sharp and early-morning raw. I stare out from my post on an overhang off Firam Peak. Let my eyes judge the steep drop into the ravine on the backside of the mountain. Jagged granite walls form unpredictable patterns that crash to the bottom the way I will soon, and a light dusting of snow contrasts starkly with the somber stone.

I shake my arms. Not to relieve the tension but to make sure I’m nimble and ready. I didn’t invite my friends, Dan and Marek, along today. I’d be better off with someone else around, of course, but nothing compares to the thrill I experience as I step forward alone. I’m on the edge now, in every sense of the word.

I draw in a breath of icy oxygen. Crack my fingers inside my gloves and adjust the strap on my helmet. I’m ready.

It’s so easy to plunge off the cliff. All I do is heave up on my toes and extend my arms. A light bend at the knees and I’m off, flying.

Ah, yes. I fly.

So good.

The wind howls around me. I’m fast—I’ve jumped a dozen times into this ravine so the speed doesn’t surprise me. When we started base jumping, Dan and I would heave ourselves as far out as we could to stay clear of the rock walls during the free-fall. With the velocity you take on, the smallest miscalculation will throw you against the ragged stone, toss you around, and beat you about like a rag doll. It’d be hard to survive.

It gets boring, though, to be careful every time. Which is why, at this point, to get that rush—the woozy bliss inundating my brain for hours afterward—I simply tip off the edge.

The wingsuit I wear is advanced technology. I stretch my arms out to the side, the fabric spanning open at my sides. A familiar sting of disappointment sings through me as I realize I’ll never fly without the squirrel suit. I can’t even begin to imagine the drug it would be to base jump with no security equipment. Straight to death, of course. I chuckle to myself at the thought.

I’m reaching the white ravine floor too quickly. Fuck, I’m lightning fast. The parachute on my back is a click away, but I postpone it, postpone it—

I’m on top of the world!

I’m so fucking alive while I plunge to what could be my last moment on Earth. I curl my body into a somersault and shout my rush out in an echo against the surrounding rock.




Originally from Norway, I moved to the United States twelve years ago. I hold a Master’s degree in languages and taught Spanish at college level before settling in at the Savannah College of Art and Design as an adviser.

I write New Adult fiction, sometimes with a paranormal twist—like in “Shattering Halos,” published by The Wild Rose Press in February 24th 2014 and in “Stargazer,” released November 2014. The first book I’ve self-published was the New Adult Contemporary novel “Pandora Wild Child,” which made me a proud indie author in October 28th 2014.

I specialize in impulsive heroines, bad-boys, and good-boys running amok. Then, there’s the intense love, physical and emotional attraction beyond reason—sensory overload for the reader as well as for the characters. Like in real life, I hope you’re unable to predict what comes next in my stories.

Yes, so I write what I love to read, and depending on the reader, you’ll find my books to be a fast-paced emotional rollercoaster—or disturbing because the struggles of love aren’t your thing. Here’s to hoping you have the same reading vice as me!
