17 Book Lovin Bitches Ebook Tours giveaway: the book of lost souls by Michelle Muto

author Michelle Muto is giving away 2 ebook copies of her YA novel The Book of Lost Souls. 



blurb:
When teen witch Ivy MacTavish changes a lizard into her date for a Halloween dance, everything turns to chaos. And when no one is powerful enough to transform him back except Ivy, it sparks the rumor: Like father, like daughter. Ivy has heard it all before - that her father, who left when she was seven – was involved with the darkest of magic.

Making the rumors worse, someone uses an evil spell book to bring back two of history's most nefarious killers. Ivy's got a simple plan to set things right: find the real dark spell caster, steal the book, and reverse the spell. No problem! But she’ll have to deal with something more dangerous than murderous spirits that want her and her friends dead: the school’s resident bad boy and hotter-than-brimstone demon, Nick Marcelli. Nick’s offering Ivy more than his help with recovering the missing book – he’s offering her a way to ditch her scaly reputation as a lizard-lover. Demons are about as hard to handle as black magic, and as Ivy soon discovers, it’s going to take more than a lot of luck and a little charm if she wants to survive long enough to clear her status as a dark witch, get a warm-blooded boyfriend, and have her former date back to eating meal worms before the week’s end.

excerpt from The Book of Lost Souls: 

Nick too much of a heartbreaker for you? Shayde’s words echoed in Ivy’s head. The last thing Ivy needed was to pine away for someone who didn’t have the reputation for sticking around past a few dates. She didn’t need someone like her father. She didn’t need someone to say the right things to her and not mean them. Her father had done that. He might have told Ivy and her mom that he loved them, but they were just words to him. Everything had been a lie. 
No way would she allow someone to do that ever again. 
She wanted someone normal. Someone safe and predictable. Someone who went with the flow and didn’t make waves. That person, despite his other faults—namely his attraction to Tara—was Dean. 
“You’ve got your own reputation, Nick. You date lots of girls. That’s not my type either.” The last thing she was going to do was tell him that he made her tingly and nervous. That’d only stroke his ego. Worse, she hated not being able to read him as easily as she did Dean. Besides, she was in enough trouble as it was. She didn’t need another complication, another reason for the Council or anyone else to think she was like her father. Nick had said it best—guilt by association.
“Well, there you go doubting yourself again,” Nick said, grinning. “Or, I should say, doubting the effect you have on me.”
She shot him a sarcastic grin. Oh yeah, Nick was smooth. Hard to tell when he was joking or if he could even be serious for a minute. Well, he could practice his lines on someone more gullible. She opened the door and he placed a hand gently on her arm. She turned toward him and for a moment couldn’t do anything except stare into his dark, velvety eyes. “Um, thanks for the pizza,” she said finally and got out of the car. She leaned in to take the book bag.
“You could leave them with me,” he said, placing a firm hand on top of the book bag. “I think you’ve probably worried your mom enough lately. She’d only ask more questions.”
“No, I found them. They’re my responsibility.” She snatched the bag and closed the door, then hurried around the car. 
“Ivy,” Nick called to her. He leaned out the window. She turned and went back to him. If she hadn’t already had a crush on Dean... 
If she hadn’t had a crush on Dean? What the hell was she thinking?
No matter how she tried, she couldn’t get the thought of what it’d be like to kiss Nick Marcelli out of her head. It was a dangerous thought. Ivy bent forward.
“Look, Ivy. I may not be who you end up with. I’m not even who you think you want,” Nick said in a low whisper and she drew nearer to hear him better. He lightly stroked her face and an unexpected warm thrill passed through her. 
“But Ives,” he said softly, “We both know that right now, I’m just what you need.”
