Insatiable Reads Tour: Anna Antonia - Mad For You (@insatiablereads)

Join us for the Insatiable Reads Summer 2013 Tour

Today we're hosting Anna Antonia and her new novel

Mad For You

From the blurb:
I had gone to high school with Gabriel Gordon. Despite his heavenly name and matching beauty, Gabriel was anything but angelic. Rich, spoiled, and far too cynical for his age, he could easily charm the skirt off a prim beauty or a young teacher or two. Gabriel Gordon was mad, bad, and ...well, you probably know the rest. The years hadn't changed him, despite taking over his father's company and expanding it into a multinational corporation. Unfortunately, it was just my luck that I found myself working in Gabriel's building. Although I had managed to avoid him for the better part of a month, a chance encounter in the elevator proved he was still an arrogant man who showed far too much interest in the shape of my mouth and nape of my neck. From then on, Gabriel bedeviled me, teased me, and more often than not, made me want to throw things at his head. Still, just as in high school, I couldn't help but see the pain behind his lazy grin and the shadows in his crystalline gaze. When Gabriel confessed his love for me, I should have been the happiest woman in the world. Too bad I couldn't believe him...
Emma Adams had always considered herself level-headed, even-tempered, and most of all, sane. So how did she become someone who couldn't seem to push Gabriel Gordon away? No matter how sweet his words could be or how easily passion exploded between them, getting involved with the outrageously wealthy playboy had to be the height of insanity. Given their tumultuous natures and personal demons, there was only way a relationship between them could survive: in madness.
An excerpt:

“Why are you in such a rush?” I barely managed to grab my purse before he completely hauled me out of the cube.

Gabriel looked over his shoulder at me and grinned. “We have to get you ready for the ball, Cinderellie.”

I struggled to keep up with his long-legged stride. “Gabriel, slow down.”

“No time.” He stopped and scooped me up in his arms. I cried out in surprise. Gabriel tossed me in the air and I let out a shrill scream.

“Put me down!”

“Nah, I like where you’re at. Although I think you deafened one of my ears.” He tossed me up and I screamed again. “You’d better hold on or I’ll keep throwing you up in the air.”

I put one hand high on his shoulder. It wasn’t good enough.

“Tighter, Emma. Tighter…tighter…too tight! Way too tight!”

I relaxed my grip around his neck while lecturing, “Gabriel, I work here! Someone might see us!”

“Nope. No one’s here to see you try to strangle me.” He turned in a full circle, showing me all the empty cubicles and darkened offices. “See? It’s Friday. Everyone else is out living their lives.”

“Except me, huh?”

“Well, yes, but not anymore because I’m here to save your night.”

I groaned and spoke to the heavens. “Why do I think I’m going to end up regretting this?”

“What’s there to regret? We’re two high school acquaintances who happen to work in the same building—”

“Which you own.”

“A pesky detail that has no bearing on the story, Emma. So there.” He strode down the hall and out a side door I’d never noticed before. Gabriel correctly read my surprised expression. “You see, this really proves my point that you’re just too serious. You need to get out more. Explore. Live. Learn all the doors to your office space. Don’t let the man hold you down, girl.”

“Gabriel, honey, you are the man. And I still say you’re not serious enough.”

“We’ll just have to agree to disagree, won’t we?” Gabriel whisked me into a thankfully empty elevator. “The Girl from Ipanema” played overhead. He hummed along, really getting into it. I started humming too which encouraged him to sway from side to side with me still in his arms.
