Blog Tour Stop ~Lead Me Not A. Meredith Walters~




Lead me not

In this dangerously sexy novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Find You in the Dark, a straight-laced college student meets a handsome but enigmatic stranger who lures her into an underground club scene, where she finds it difficult to resist temptation 

Aubrey Duncan understands loss. She knows what rock bottom looks like, and she is determined to crawl back up to the top after the sudden death of her younger sister. She blames herself for her part in the tragedy, convinced that she could have done something, anything, to help her.

In her effort to gain redemption, Aubrey starts fresh at Longwood University and facilitates an addiction support group, hoping she can support someone else in the way she failed her sister. But what she doesn’t count on is an all-consuming fascination with group member Maxx Demelo, a gorgeous, blond, blue-eyed enigma who hides dark secrets behind a carefully constructed mask. He only reveals what he wants others to see. But Aubrey glimpses another Maxx hidden below the surface—a Maxx who is drowning in his own personal hell.

As Aubrey and Maxx develop an attraction too intense to ignore, he pulls her into the dark underbelly of the city club scene, where she is torn by her desire to save him and an inexplicable urge to join him in his downward spiral. Worst of all, she is beginning to love everything she should run away from—a man who threatens to ignite in her a fire that could burn her alive…





Ems Review



I fell in love with A. Meredith Walters when I read Find you in the Dark, those feelings didn’t change when I read Reclaiming the Sand. Lead Me Not is by far her best book to date.  I love how she takes profound subject matters and makes the reader see into that side of things. This story wasn’t any different, this story was so much more.

Aubrey meets Maxx as his counselor, as the person that is suppose to be helping Maxx to realize life is more then popping pills or taking hits. The problem is Aubrey falls victim to Maxx’s charm, she becomes addicted to him.  I don’t fault her for it either, Maxx is definitely an infectious personality. He’s charming. Any woman would have to have a steel wall in order to battle Maxx and walk away without wondering what if.

Aubrey soon realizes that the person Maxx shows the world is not the Maxx that she is starting to discover. His smoke and mirrors are beginning to diminish. His need to numb the pain becomes too much and when he no longer wants to numb the pain, he soon realizes the addiction has a hold on him. He can’t walk away. There is a line in the book that speaks volumes on this. He was no longer the man that he wanted Aubrey to see, but the broken boy.

I Loved every part of this book, the intensity, the dark sides, the love even the parts that made me hate. Meredith completely blew me away with this one and I am dying to see where these two characters go from here.

If you haven’t read anything from this author, I highly recommend her. Just be prepared for the struggle you will have the characters, these are not fluffy reads with HEA’s that make you go aww. These are HEA’s that make you go “Thank God” because your heart just couldn’t fathom seeing the struggle between these characters turning into nothing.
