BlogTour: Freeing by E. K. Blair

FREEING IS A COMPANION FULL LENGTH NOVEL. Fading should definitely be read first to understand part of Jase's story. 


Knowing who you are and accepting who you are come at different prices. 

Jase Kinrick grew up in your typical, all-American household. But after the death of his sister, his parents shut down, forcing him to deal with everything life throws his way alone. Terrified of the person he’s discovering himself to be, Jase has his way with every willing girl to try and rid himself of what he fears he is—gay. 

Escaping California and moving to Seattle to attend the University of Washington, Jase frees himself to the reality that he likes men. Never staying with any guy long enough to get to know them, he doesn’t realize that he’s still hiding from who he is until he meets Mark. Scared of having real feelings for another guy stirs up the questions and fears he’s fought hard to bury. 

To strip away the barriers to the heart of what is real, and to be okay with what lies underneath, will be Jase’s moment of truth. But he’ll need Mark to lead him there.

ALY POV:(Ryan Watches Candace at Jase’s Apartment)

Running my hand through my hair, I knock on Jase’s door.

“Hey,” he says when he answers.

“Hey, man. You guys ready?”

“Mark is still at Aiden’s place going over some of the new songs.”

“How’s that been going,” I ask as I sit down on the couch and flip on the TV.

“You wanna beer?” he asks, distracted, from the kitchen and as soon as I say, “Yeah,” I turn my attention to his front door when I hear it opening.


She looks shocked to see me sitting here. God, what is it about this girl that draws every piece of me in. I can’t take my eyes off of her. Wet hair piled on top of her head, no make-up, and wearing sweats. Definitely not what I normally go for, but nothing about this feeling in my chest is normal. She’s beautiful.

“Hey, is everything all right?” Jase asks her, and she finally peels her eyes away from me, and the bastard inside wishes he would’ve just kept his mouth shut.

She walks over to the chair while stammering, “Umm, yeah . . . I mean, no.”

“What’s that mean?” he questions as she flops down, clearly aggravated, and I wonder what happened between now and when I saw her this morning at her work.

“Nothing, never mind,” she sighs softly.

Leaning forward, I watch her as her attention is fixed on the TV. She’s small and petite and suddenly my mind fucks with me again as I get a flash of that night. That girl. That tiny girl.

“You okay?” I ask her. I speak more for the sake of ridding my mind of the games my head is trying to play on me. I know it’s not her. What are the chances?

“I don’t want to talk about it,” she answers without evershifting her eyes from the TV, oblivious to the affect she’s having on me. She’s gonna be a hard one to crack.
