Author Guest Post & Giveaway: SE Jakes

Posted January 17, 2014 by Jen in Author Guest Post, Blog Tour, Giveaway Tags: , ,


Hey everyone!!! Thanks to That’s What I’m Talking About for having me back here for my Dirty Deeds blog tour 🙂 Dirty Deeds is the first in this spin-off series of Hell or High Water. Dirty Deeds focuses on Cillian and Mal, two characters who’ve been in both Hell or High Water books 1 & 2 (Catch a Ghost and Long Time Gone.) Dirty Deeds # 1 captures a very specific moment in time for the Cillian (the spook) and Mal (the former SEAL in exile).

I love writing to music, and I like to compile soundtracks for my books. I put the songs and some of the lyrics that are particularly important to the book at hand on my website when the book’s published. So this is the first reveal of the Dirty Deeds soundtrack. If you’ve read the books already, I think you’ll understand the lyrics that called to me…and if you haven’t read it yet, it’ll give you a taste of what’s to come.

Hells Bells (AC / DC)

See the white light flashing as I split the night
Cause if good’s on the left then I’m sticking to the right
I won’t take no prisoners won’t spare no lives
Nobody’s puttin’ up a fight

Stone Cold Crazy (Queen)

I ran outta juice
They’re gonna put me in a cell, if I can’t go to heaven
Will they let me go to hell
Stone cold crazy, you know

Another One Bites The Dust (Queen)

There are plenty of ways you can hurt a man
And bring him to the ground
You can beat him
You can cheat him
You can treat him bad and leave him
When he’s down
But I’m ready, yes I’m ready for you
I’m standing on my own two feet

Put Your Lights On (Santana featuring Everlast)

Cause there’s a monster living under my bed
Whispering in my ear
There’s an angel, with a hand on my head
She say I’ve got nothing to fear

There’s a darkness living deep in my soul
I still got a purpose to serve
So let your light shine, deep into my home
God, don’t let me lose my nerve
Don’t let me lose my nerve

Insane in the Brain (Cypress Hill)

Hide from the red light beam
Now do you believe in the unseen
Look, but don’t make your eyes strain

It’s Been Awhile (Staind)

And it’s been awhile
Since I’ve gone and fucked things up just like I always do
And it’s been awhile
But all that shit seems to disappear when I’m with you

Fell on Black Days (Soundgarden)

To what you wanted to see good
Has made you blind
And what you wanted to be yours
Has made it mine

Fooled Around and Fell in Love (Elvin Bishop)

Free, on my own is the way I used to be
Ah, but since I met you baby, love’s got a hold on me
It’s got a hold on me now, I can’t let go of you baby
I fooled around and fell in love
I fooled around and fell in love, oh yes I did

Do You Wanna Touch Me? (Joan Jett)

Beggin’ on my knees baby, won’t you please?
Run your fingers through my hair

My, my, my whiskey and rye
Don’t it make you feel so fine
Right or wrong don’t it turn you on
Can’t you see we’re wastin’ time, yeah?

Closer (Nine Inch Nails)

You can have my isolation, you can have the hate that it brings
You can have my absence of faith, you can have my everything
Help me tear down my reason, help me its’ your sex I can smell
Help me you make me perfect, help me become somebody else

About the book:

DirtyDeeds_400x600Dirty Deeds: Dirty Deeds book 1

Two seasoned operatives finally meet their match: each other.

Cillian works for the mysterious Special Branch 20: an organization that runs black ops commissioned by the British government. His specialty is deep undercover assignments with virtually no support. He’s been alone for so long that he no longer knows anything else.

Mal’s also used to being alone. Wanted in several states and even more countries, he’s not allowed in the vicinity of any of his former Navy SEAL teammates. And his current assignment is to track Cillian in order to discover the spook’s endgame. Except he’s no longer sure which one of them is getting played.

Cillian isn’t about to let the mission that’s consumed him for the past several years crumble because an outsider is poking around where he doesn’t belong. But Mal forces his way through Cillian’s defenses—and into his heart—exposing a devastating betrayal that could destroy them both.

    Fantastic songs! Just reading them brings some of the scenes from the story roaring back in my head. I loved reading Mal and Cillian so much! Thank you!!

    I’m both excited and nervous to start this book. The Hell or Highwater series, especially Prophet nearly tore my heart out.
