Ginger Scott released a new book this past 23rd Memphis.
My mom always said it was just something about the way he moved.
The same swagger Archie Valentine wore in the ring when he took his opponents
down followed him like a halo everywhere he went. But make no mistake about it—
he was no angel. He was like a drug. My mother was his addict.
I never understood it…how love could make you blind and convince you to drink the
poison. Not until I met Memphis Delaney.
At first, it was the familiar form. He’s a fighter, built like a god from the past, the kind
of man the universe doesn’t make anymore. His eyes hide a story, and every time I’m
in his presence I want to keep reading him until I get to the end. And then…there’s
the way he moves. His boxing is violent but beautiful, and his body is a seductive
weapon. When he’s in the ring, he wears the stare of a man committed to the battle
until his very last breath.
He could end me; turn me into her. Too much of him will leave me as a shadow, and
I’ve lost so much of myself already.
But I have discipline. It came the hard way. Lessons learned, scars left behind, and
trust stripped away from life.
I will breathe his air, but I won’t fall for a man like him. The only boxer who’s ever
going to break my heart is the one who gave me my name.
Memphis is the story of Liv and Memphis. Two people with family issues that find a home in the other one.
If you’ve read any other Ginger Scott book you know she writes powerful characters with personal issues and complicated lives.
Memphis is pure heart, this boy is just looking to belong.
Liv just wants to survive enough to run away and be someplace else.
Together they find what they were looking for and more, but life always gets in the way.
The chemistry between them is so godo and they compliment each other really well since the first time they met.
Overall, I liked this book and its main characters. A story about surviving, living and becoming someone, but above it all is about finding your HOME.
It’s not The Hard Count (one of my favorite books of all times) but it’s pretty good, like most of the books written by this author.
Ginger Scott is an Amazon-bestselling and Goodreads Choice Award-nominated
author of several young and new adult romances, including Waiting on the Sidelines,
Going Long, Blindness, How We Deal With Gravity, This Is Falling, You and
Everything After, The Girl I Was Before, Wild Reckless, Wicked Restless, In Your

A sucker for a good romance, Ginger’s other passion is sports, and she often blends
the two in her stories. (She’s also a sucker for a hot quarterback, catcher, pitcher,
point guard…the list goes on.) Ginger has been writing and editing for newspapers,
magazines and blogs for more than 15 years. She has told the stories of Olympians,
politicians, actors, scientists, cowboys, criminals and towns. For more on her and
her work, visit her website at http://www.littlemisswrite.com.
When she’s not writing, the odds are high that she’s somewhere near a baseball
diamond, either watching her son field pop flies like Bryce Harper or cheering on
her favorite baseball team, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Ginger lives in Arizona and is
married to her college sweetheart whom she met at ASU (fork ’em, Devils).
