ETA: This contest is now closed. Nancy won the book.
This month I’m giving away a signed paperback copy of Trade Me by Courtney Milan!
This is one of my absolute favorites of Courtney’s books, up there with The Suffragette Scandal and Unraveled. It’s a NA contemporary romance (the first in her Cyclone series), about a poor college student struggling to get by and keep her mother from giving away the hard-earned money she sends home for her sister’s ADD meds to fellow Chinese refugees in need. Tina is offered the chance to trade lives for a month with another student desperate to escape his high-pressure life as heir to an innovative tech company and its irascible founder.
I love Tina with the fire of a thousand suns and I sobbed violently SEVERAL TIMES about her pathological sense of responsibility and fear of risk (MY FAVORITE TROPE, for personal reasons that I’m sure you will never guess).
Pictured: Spokesmodel T-Rex (not included) recharging his Tesla.
Tina Chen just wants a degree and a job, so her parents never have to worry about making rent again. She has no time for Blake Reynolds, the sexy billionaire who stands to inherit Cyclone Systems. But when he makes an offhand comment about what it means to be poor, she loses her cool and tells him he couldn’t last a month living her life.
To her shock, Blake offers her a trade: She’ll get his income, his house, his car. In exchange, he’ll work her hours and send money home to her family. No expectations; no future obligations.
But before long, they’re trading not just lives, but secrets, kisses, and heated nights together. No expectations might break Tina’s heart…but Blake’s secrets could ruin her life.

Fun giveaway! Bonus, it’s a book I haven’t read. 😍
OOH This looks excellent.
This sounds intriguing. I’m in!
Sounds like a good book.
Nancy, you won the book! Look for an email from me.
I love Courtney Milan–I really enjoyed The Duchess War and Right Honorable Gentleman. This looks like a great book!
I love this book and have people to whom I wish to give it. (It’s oddly easier to make them read physical copies.
I agree, there’s something about a physical copy that makes it easier to corral people into reading. Good luck! 😉

I would like to read this book. Sounds pretty good. Thanks
Can’t wait to read and meet you at Barbara Veys.
This sounds like a great idea for a book! Looking forward to seeing you at Barbara Vey’s!
*muppet flails* and she’s a Colorado author! Off to ask my local library to stock it while I hope to win. Contemporary isn’t usually my cuppa anymore but if you’re recommending it and Milan wrote it, well, that great odds for a wowzer book.
Thanks again for all your writing & generosity!
Well done! Courtney Milan should be in every library. 😀 Good luck in the drawing!
The first Courtney Milan book I read was Unlocked, I enjoyed it very much.
Love T Rex
Unlocked was great! Unraveled is still my fave from that series. Oh, Smite! <3
I have an unsigned copy of this–how fun! Milan is definitely a squee-worthy author 🙂
This book looks intriguing!
I have yet to read a book by Courtney so would love the chance to do so. Thanks for the giveaway
