Red Dawn Blog Tour & Giveaway

August 28, 2012 Giveaway 9

Welcome to my stop on the tour for Red Dawn by J.J. Bonds!

I am pleased to say that I have been provided with a special treat for you, a game of Truth or Dare between Katia and Nik!

(Intro from Ms. Bonds) I’ve got a special treat for your reader’s today: Truth or Dare with Katia and Nik. I have to admit, this normally wouldn’t be Katia’s kind of thing (she’s far too serious for her own good), but somehow or another (I don’t want to know how); Nik’s talked her into a quick game. Winner takes all!

Truth or Dare

Katia: Come on, Nik. Quit messing around. Let’s just get this over with already.

Nik: As usual, your enthusiasm is overwhelming. Then again, if you really don’t want to play, we can just skip to the part where I win and collect my prize? *smiles seductively*

Katia: You wish!  I swear you have a one track mind. Besides, I’m not planning to lose so just keep it in your pants. Truth or dare?

Nik: Truth. Ask me anything. I don’t have any secrets. Not from you, anyway.

Katia: You are so full of crap. *rolls eyes* Have you ever fed on a live human?

Nik: I’ve been tempted, but no. I want to join the Linkuri, not be hunted by them. Truth or dare?

Katia: Truth.

Nik: On a scale of 1 to 10, how hot do you think I am?

Katia: You’ve got to be kidding? That’s your question? It’s a wonder your ginormous head even fits through the door.

Nik: Quit stalling. You owe me an answer and it has to be honest. Those are the rules.

Katia: Fine. Whatever. You know you’re hot.  8. Two point deduction for being an ass.

Nik: Sticks and stones…. Think I’ll try a dare this time. Maybe you can be a bit more creative this round?

Katia: You want creative? Alright. I dare you to sneak into Headmaster Pratt’s office and screw with him. Rearrange the furniture, steal his beloved handbook or paint the place red for all I care. Just make it something he won’t forget any time soon.

Nik: Piece of cake. Consider it done. Truth or dare?

Katia: Truth.

Nik: Again? Aren’t you the little glutton for punishment today? Afraid of what a dare might entail?

Katia: Truth. Unless you’re out of questions? In which case I’ll consider it a win.

Nik: Hardly! Will you be letting your guard down this year so we can get to know each other better?

Katia: Doubtful. Besides, you obviously like the challenge. Truth or dare?

Nik: Truth.

Katia: Are you seriously that oblivious to Blaine’s affection for you?

Nik: No, but it’s a delicate situation so I choose to play ignorant. He’s my friend and I prefer to keep it that way. Truth or dare?

Katia: Dare.

Nik: I dare you to kiss me and not enjoy it.

Katia: Are you really that desperate for a kiss? *gives Nik a peck on the lips* There.

Nik: You call that a kiss?

Katia: What can I say? Guess I’m a cold fish. And I can assure you I didn’t enjoy it.

Nik: Then why are you blushing? Wanted a bit more? I’d be happy to accommodate. I could warm you up in a heartbeat.

Katia: With that attitude? Doubtful. Truth or dare?

Nik: Dare.

Katia: I dare you to streak across campus– right now.

Nik: Naked???

Katia: I do believe that’s the definition of streaking. What? Can’t handle it? A stud like you, you’d be doing the girls on this campus a favor, right?

Nik: *smirks cockily* Playing dirty now are we? I like that.

Katia: You started it. Do the deed or this game is over.

Nik: I’ll tell you what. I’ll give you this round. You’ve earned it. *leans in dangerously close* You know where to find me when you’re ready to collect your prize.


Intrigued? I know I am! Now, onto the giveaway! The winner gets their choice of  an e-book of Crossroads or Red Dawn. I am going to make this easy peasy, just leave a comment, and let us know how long ago the last time you played Truth or Dare, and if you are feeling brave, the best Truth/Dare you were ever asked! 🙂 I will use to pick a winner. The contest will be open for one week, so Sept 3rd at midnight. So get to commenting!

Katia’s done running. She’s fought fiercely to protect her identity, her secrets, and those she loves most. And while it hasn’t been easy, she’s finally making peace with the past. Katia’s even looking forward to the start of a new school year at Crossroads Academy.

Too bad things at Crossroads are going to be a little different this fall. There are new rules, new students, and new relationships. Katia quickly discovers that navigating the halls of Crossroads is as complicated as ever.

When a friend’s life is at stake, Katia will be forced to choose between the safety of Crossroads and an enemy more dangerous than any she’s ever faced. Will Katia have the courage to risk it all -including her life- for a friend?

    Thanks for this fun post. I seriously love Nik and Katia already! The last time I played truth or dare was at least 25 years ago, unfortunately.

      Lol. That’s what I love about YA! It keeps me young at heart. In real life, I don’t think I could find many takers for a game of Truth or Dare! Thanks for checking out the tour!

    Hi! I came over from Auntie Spinelli Reads. 🙂

    And wow, that is one gorgeous cover! The characters sound fun too. susanfrancino [at] gmail [dot] com

    OMG! I love the fact that she deducted 2 points because he’s an ass. And what’s this about Blaine’s affections for Nik? A gay vamp? Really? I SOOOOO need to get my hands on this book!
    As for a game of truth or dare – I honestly have no stinkin’ idea. I remember playing it in high school but I’m not sure we even bothered with it in college. So it could be 15 or 20 years ago! Phew – I’m feeling old!

    • J.J. Bonds

      I was pretty proud of Katia for that deduction as well! Nik clearly needs someone to keep his ego in check! Good luck in the giveaway!


    Hi JJ
    I absolutely enjoyed the truth or dare game between Katia and Nik. Can I expect something similar in the book?
    I can’t wait to read it and I would have bought it last Sunday, but what can I say? I’m a sucker for giveaways.
