Instead of This | Cover Reveal!

Hello everyone!  Today is the first day for the Instead of This Blog Tour!  Instead of This is the third book in The Mind Breaker Accounts by Megan Duke.  I'm gonna talk a little bit about what happened in the first two books in the series and then what I think is going to happen in the third book.  Also, I will reveal the first part of the cover of Instead of This!  Look out for the next posts in the blog tour to see the other parts. P.S. Today is Jack's day, so get ready for a lot of sexy.

Let's get a (non-spoilery) recap on books 1 and 2.  Denni is a normal 21-year-old girl with a normal job and a normal boyfriend, living her normal life.  Or so she thought.  Turns out her boyfriend, Amos, is what we like to call around here a "Mind Breaker", and he's been controlling her emotions.  Whoops.  Also, the cute guy at the coffee shop that she's been flirting with?  Yep, also a Mind Breaker.  In an instant, Denni's life is turned upside down when she realizes two different guys have been influencing her emotions.  As she's thrust into a world where mind control is the norm, she has to figure out exactly who she can trust.  And to make things even more complicated: *que in evil bad-guy scientist*.  Because what sci-fi novel is complete without an evil scientist?  In Without Me and Because of Him, the stakes are high as the Mind Breakers bind together to fight an evil much greater than them.

So now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's get to the good stuff. *BTW this is the end of the non-spoilery, so if you haven't read Without Me and Because of Him yet, proceed with caution!*



Yep, it's Jack time.  So Jack is the aforementioned cute coffee guy, emphasis on the cute.  Sure, he makes mistakes like the rest of us, but I think we can forgive a face like that.  Denni falls hard for Jack in book 1, but things get complicated when Avery enters the picture.  With an undeniable history, Avery and Jack are old sparks, which is not good for Denni.  Fortunately, Jack makes the right decision in the end, and Denni and Jack reconnect in book 2.  So where does that leave us for book 3?  I have a few theories.  One: Jack loses his powers, and has to learn how to live without his mind-reading abilities.  Two: He dies a horrible death, and all of the fans hate Megan forever.  Three: He pulls an Amos and everyone thinks he dies but he doesn't really.  Four: Everything turns out okay, and Jack and Denni live happily ever after.  Okay seriously, I really hope that last one is true.  Knowing Megan, though...

Okay, enough theorizing about book 3.  Let's get to the cover.  The first piece is...
