Guest Post: Cole from Strength by: Carrie Butler

I have a special treat for us today. Cole from Strength by Carrie Butler has dropped by the blog. What is Strength you ask? Well it is an awesome Paranormal New Adult novel and you can check out my review here. He is here to tell you why you should read Strength. So sit back, relax, and enjoy Cole! *eats popcorn*

"When college student Rena Collins finds herself nose-to-chest with the campus outcast, her rumor-laced notions are shattered. Handsome, considerate, and seemingly sane, Wallace Blake doesn’t look like he spends his nights alone, screaming and banging on the walls of his dorm room. Hell, he doesn’t look like he spends his nights alone, period.

Too curious for her own good, Rena vows to uncover the truth behind Wallace’s madman reputation--and how two seconds of contact had left her with bruises. Of course, there are a few setbacks along the way: guilt, admiration, feelings of the warm and fuzzy variety…

Not to mention the unwanted attention of Wallace's powerful, supernaturally-gifted family.

They’re a bloodline divided by opposing ideals, two soon-to-be warring factions that live in secret among us. When Rena ends up caught in their crossfire, Wallace has no choice but to save her by using his powers. Now they’re really in trouble. With war on the horizon and Rena’s life in the balance, he needs to put some distance between them. But Rena won’t let go. If fighting is what it takes to prove her own strength and keep Wallace in her life, then that’s what she’ll do--even if it means risking a whole lot more than her heart."

Well, look who rattled my cage. It’s Teresa Mary Rose. Kinda rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? Almost like Teresa Mary Blake... ;)

Relax. I remember the restraining order—that was when you demanded I tie you up, right? 

I’m kidding! Geez. All work and no play. I get it. Here’s the top ten list:

Ten Reasons Why You Should Read Strength - Commentary by Cole Blake

10. I’m in it.

9. You’ll get to witness one of my lowest moments (and live to tell about it). My back was against the wall, and I might’ve made a poor decision. Or two. Six. Whatever. The important thing is that it helped everyone in the long run. 

Kind of.

What? You don’t believe me? Go read it for yourself. 

8. You’ll learn some of my secrets. Just don’t blab about ‘em. 

7. You’ll figure out why Sis calls me AssCole. Hard to believe, right? Me, a perfect gentleman, having to deal with that kind of abuse. I blame society.

6. Speaking of Sis, she falls in love with my twin brother. Don’t worry, though. It’s not incest. I just call her that to screw with her. 

(Supposedly, the book is about them.)

5. You’ll get to meet my grandma. I know. Just when you thought I couldn’t get any hotter, I show my sensitive side. What can I say? I’m a family man.

4. You’ll stop swooning over Wallace once you read how he wakes me up. Rude much, bro?

3. You’ll get to see me tie someone up with scarves. Silk ones, too. Fancy shit. Too bad I had an audience.

2. Half of Strength’s readers love me, and the other half pretend to hate me. After you read the book, you can pick a side. #TeamAssCole or #TeamGrudge?

1. If you don’t read it, how the hell are you going to know what’s going on in Book 2? That’s when I get more page time. Come on, people! October 15, 2013.

hehehe I have such a soft spot for this cutie! Thanks for dropping by Cole!


  1. I haven't heard of Cole nor this book, but he seems like an interesting character! :) Thanks for sharing this Teresa :)

  2. Thanks for having Cole over, Teresa! I apologize if he offended anyone or started any fires. ;)

    1. It was lovely having him here. I was sad I had to give him back, but he has to appear in other books so I can't keep him forever *sigh*.

      And it was only a small fire... No fire department necessary ;)

  3. This is great. I was so upset about Cole that I had to email Carrie about him. lol

    I can see she's trying to make me like him. At least he recognizes it was his worst moment.

  4. Oh wow! I heard a little about this book when it released, and it definitely intrigued me. I'm very curious about how I would feel about Cole.
    Thanks for sharing!

  5. I've been wanting to read this, Teresa. And I ADORE Cole's 10 reasons why I should...even if they do all center around him. :) Thanks for sharing Cole with us!

    1. He is a tad egotistical lol but he is a cutie.

  6. OMG I love Cole. That was hilarious.
