My Misery Muse by Brei Betzold ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway

Welcome to your stop here at Sugar and Spice for Brei Betzold's My Misery Muse blog tour and Giveaway!


First young love gets sidetracked by dreams that take them on two different journeys, but an unknown bond brings them back together again. Devi Porter an up-and-coming tattoo artist in Dallas is trying to live her life as best as possible, but never able to forget the love she had with Seth. Seth a bassist for the popular band My Misery Muse is struggling with his fellow band members with the lifestyle that he now lives. The band decides to go home to Dallas to work on their latest album as well as to work out their problems out from under the glare of the media. Seth and Devi meet up again and both realize they have a lot to work out between themselves as well. As they get reacquainted life and obstacles are thrown at them at every turn, are they able to overcome them to become the family neither really had?


“Fuck, who is she?” Xavier said.

I followed his line of sight and saw a girl with her back towards us, I would recognize her anywhere. I smiled, “That would be Devi.”

“No, that couldn’t be,” Xavier said. “Drake would never let her leave the house wearing something like that.”

I laughed, but couldn’t help myself feeling a little possessive. Damn, she looked good. She was wearing a long black skirt that reached the top of her boots and silver buckles down the front resembling a pair of bondage pants I have. The shiny black cloth that was her shirt looked to wrap around her neck but she had a long black scarf wrapped around it. I couldn’t tell, but the back was open and tied leaving her back bare, along with her ribs and the sides of her breasts. It stopped well before her skirt ended showing a sexy amount of toned stomach, the shirt perfectly showed off the tattoo that covered her back. She was always sexy, but tonight she had outdone herself. She glanced in my direction as if she could feel my stare on her, but couldn’t see me from where I stood. Jules, Cin, Mags, Drake, Cris, and Max stood with her all laughing, drinks in hand, looking like they were having a good time.

I walked out the back way from the stage and walked up behind her, and wrapped my arms around her. She melted instantly into my chest and raised her arms up so they looped behind my neck; I took the opportunity and nuzzled her neck.

“Hey baby,” I said in her ear.

She looked up at me and smiled, over the past few days we had decided to try and take things slowly and see where they lead. I couldn’t help but stake my claim on her tonight though. I had noticed one too many pairs of male eyes on her, so I kissed her deeply letting all the other men know she was mine.

“Did you get Jaks all squared away?” I asked when we broke off the kiss, she gave me a look saying she knew exactly what I was doing but I really didn’t care. I knew she had been nervous about leaving him over night with Cris’s mom. She had watched him for a few hours before, but he had only ever spent the night with Drake or Mags before.

She nodded. “When I left he was at her table drinking milk and eating homemade chocolate chip cookies,” she said in my ear, the only way to really hear over the noise.

I kissed the back of her neck and felt her responding shiver.

“I got to get back, but I’ll find you when we’re done,” I murmured against her ear.

“Alright, break a leg.”

I leaned down and captured her lips with mine, not leaving a part of her mouth unexplored, claiming her as mine.

“See you soon, baby,” I murmured against her lips before letting go, waving at everyone watching us and headed back to the band.

  1. this book sounds intriguing!!

  2. This is really crappy writing. Many grammar problems: Punctuation, comma splices, run-on sentences, verb tense changes, word choices. All this in a short excerpt. Very embarrassing. Can only imagine how the rest of the book is. Excerpt is intriguing, but I won't waste my time reading crappy writing regardless of how good a story is.

  3. Would love the chance to read this!

    Thank you!
