Excerpt Tour Launch: The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith




The Geography of You and MeThe Geography of You and Me
by Jennifer E. Smith
YA Contemporary Romance
April 15th 2014 by Little, Brown for Young Readers



Lucy and Owen meet somewhere between the tenth and eleventh floors of a New York City apartment building, on an elevator rendered useless by a citywide blackout. After they're rescued, they spend a single night together, wandering the darkened streets and marveling at the rare appearance of stars above Manhattan. But once the power is restored, so is reality. Lucy soon moves to Edinburgh with her parents, while Owen heads out west with his father.

Lucy and Owen's relationship plays out across the globe as they stay in touch through postcards, occasional e-mails, and -- finally -- a reunion in the city where they first met.

A carefully charted map of a long-distance relationship, Jennifer E. Smith's new novel shows that the center of the world isn't necessarily a place. It can be a person, too.



The two main characters, Lucy and Owen, from The Geography of You and Me first meet in New York, but then keep in contact from different places around the world before meeting up in New York again.

The author, Jennifer E. Smith, shared some of her favorite places in the world in preparation of Geography's release. We'd like to re-share them with you!


"First up, New York City, where I’ve lived for nearly a decade now, and where the book begins.  This city can be intense at times, but it’s also completely amazing and unlike anywhere else in the world." 



"If I didn’t live in New York City, I’d almost certainly want to live in London (preferably in the lavender house above, which I’ve had picked out for years!).

I’ve been lucky enough to spend a lot of time there, and those of you who have read THE STATISTICAL PROBABILITY OF LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT will have a sense of how much I adore it.  

Definitely one of my favorite places in the world."


"One of my other favorite places in the world is Ireland. I studied abroad in Limerick when I was in college, and completely fell in love with the country. I’ve been lucky enough to get back there several times since, and I can never get enough.

That’s me feeding a baby lamb at my friend’s farm in Mayo — and no, it’s not actually beer! I was so tickled to get to do this, until we went inside right afterwards for supper, which was….lamb. Ah, farm life."

Lake Tahoe is another one of my favorite places.  My family has gone pretty much every summer for the last fifteen years or so, and it’s absolutely beautiful. Another place I wish could be today…

"Lake Tahoe is another one of my favorite places.  My family has gone pretty much every summer for the last fifteen years or so, and it’s absolutely beautiful. Another place I wish could be today…"

My last favorite place for the day.  This is Doubtful Sound in New Zealand, where my sister and I went three years ago, just a few days after a devastating earthquake in Christchurch. (We’re wearing matching sweatshirts because we couldn’t ever get back to our bags, since our hotel was right next to the fallen cathedral.)
It was so odd to find ourselves in one of the most peaceful places on earth just days after experiencing one of the most chaotic ones, and it was exactly what we needed at the time.  I think of this place often, and I hope to visit it again someday…

"St. Andrews in Scotland. When I daydream, this is usually what’s on my mind.  I went to grad school here, and it was one of the best years of my life. I love this place so much, and part of THE GEOGRAPHY OF YOU AND ME is set in Scotland just so I had an excuse to keep daydreaming about it."

Another one of my favorite places is San Francisco. I think the picture says it all: hills, water, sailboats, nice weather. What’s not to love?

And Paris…because who doesn’t love Paris?

Short Excerpt Trust Me?

I turn to face him; he puts his other arm around me. We are in the same position as before when the last kiss attempt failed. My arms are tight around his neck, his arms around my waist. I look down. He lifts up my chin so I’m lost in his gaze. His hand goes back to my waist. He swallows; I think he’s as nervous as I am. He tilts his head and leans in … I back away quickly.
“What’s wrong?” he asks, looking hurt.
“Oh, no, it’s not you. I think … I might have garlic breath.”
He laughs and pulls me back to him. “So do I.” He pulls me in tighter, and before I know what’s happening, his lips are on mine. I give in and surrender to him completely.
This feels like one of my fantasies, only way, way better. He holds me tight as one hand moves from my waist to caress my cheek, kissing me softly but sensually. My hands move to the back of his head, and I grab a lock of hair in each hand. He moves our bodies so that I’m against the railing at the edge of the deck. He moves his hand from my waist to hold the rail as I still grasp his hair. The kissing becomes feverishly passionate; his tongue against mine as they intertwine with each other. Our breathing becomes faster and erratic. Our kissing becomes more intimate. We are in perfect sync with each other. I pull him closer to me, our whole bodies touching. My heart is pounding fast and hard. His hand moves from my face to the back of my head, pulling me tight. He moves my hair from the side of my neck, breaks our kiss and kisses my neck slowly and seductively. I sigh and breathe in a stuttering motion. I open my eyes to see the waitress standing there, gawking at us. I stiffen as I see her. He pulls back and looks at me. With my eyes, I gesture toward the waitress. He turns, looks, and lets out a little huff. He leans in towards me.
“Now that’s a first kiss,” he whispers as he grabs my hand and leads me over to the table. I can’t help but smile.

Short Excerpt Love Me?

       My nerves start to get the better of me, I start to feel nauseous; those darn pesky butterflies attack again. I’m not sure why I’m nervous, whether it’s the shoes making me unstable or whether it’s the memory of our first date, our first touch, or our first kiss that’s making me bashful. 
       I turn the corner to see him standing there with a bunch of red roses, in the suit that he changed into earlier, this time with a baby pink tie on. Behind him is that gorgeous waterfall cascading down the cliff with the lush greenery surrounding us. As I take a step closer, I hear music playing. “Thank You for Loving Me” by Bon Jovi. It’s our song. I feel my eyes welling up as all the emotion and love I feel for this man is becoming too much to bear.
       His smile is beaming from ear to ear when I approach. Finally I reach him. He holds out his hand for me to take. I take it, and he pulls me into a tight embrace.
       “This is perfect,” I whisper.
       “Perfection for perfection, my love.” He kisses my cheek, and places the bouquet of flowers on the railing.

Short Excerpt All of Me?

“Aiden, I’m so sorry.” I take hold of his hand and cry in despair.
He pulls away. “I can’t, Jeni. I’m leaving.”
I stand watching him in shock. He can’t leave! “Where are you going?” I ask, tears streaming down my face.
“Tokyo.”
“I thought your father was going?”
“He was, but then I said I’d go when you… you left me. Jeni, I’m moving there.”
My heart sinks to the floor; I’m going to lose him forever. How can this be going so wrong?
“When?”
“Tomorrow.”
I stumble on the spot as a wave of unimaginable regret surges through me.
“I think you should go.” His voice is cold and distant. He turns and heads toward his office. Pretty bitch stares at me, biting her bottom lip.
Brielle stands up and walks over.
“Jeni, I’m so sorry, but I think you’re too late.” A tear escapes, running down her cheek.
“I miss you, Bree. I miss everyone, especially Aiden.” I take a deep breath and try to compose myself.
“We miss you too, Jeni, especially him.” She wipes a tear from her cheek.
“Guess I fucked up big time.”
She gives me an understanding nod. “Maybe he’ll come around. I’ll talk to him.”
I shake my head. “No, it’s fine. I’m obviously too late.” I hit my forehead with my hand a few times and wince. How could I have been so stupid?
I turn and walk to the elevator, push the button, and look back at Aiden’s closed office door. The elevator doors open and I enter. Why did I leave it so long to realize how I felt? What the hell is wrong with me? I’m a total idiot, and now I have lost the only man I’ll ever truly love. My heart and soul belong to Aiden. I’m sure I’ll never get over this.

When I wake up in a dark, unfamiliar room, I have no idea what’s waiting for me in the shadows. My imagination conjures up demons of the worst kind.
Reality is much worse:
A collar with no leash. A prison with no walls. And a life stripped of meaning.
I am presented with a vile contract and asked to sign. It outlines the terms of my servitude. The only information I have about my captor are the two small letters inked at the bottom:
J.S.
Armed with only my memories, I must do everything I can to avoid becoming ensnared in his twisted mind games. But in the end, it all comes down to one choice:
Resist and die.
Or submit, and sign my life away

About the Author-

I’m Scarlett Edwards. I wrote my first book as a college sophomore. After six months of edits, it made its debut as Yours to Savor.
That was at the start of 2013. I’ve written more books since then. You can find them all here.
It’s funny how quickly life changes. I used to think I’d need a degree to get a “Real Job.” Then I wrote a few books, they got somewhat popular, and now I’m living the life as a full-time romance author.
Thanks to all my readers for making my dreams come true!
