Kathy Lyons | Rejection Therapy

GIVEAWAY: Locker Room Diaries Prize Package!


Ever hear of Rejection Therapy?

Guess what it is:

  1. You eat lots of weird foods to find out what your body rejects most violently.
  2. You say “no” to at least one person a day.
  3. You go through your own closet and “reject” clothing by throwing it out. At least 28 pieces a day. Once there’s nothing left in your closet, you start on your things. It’s a quick way to a minimalist lifestyle.
  4. You do something daily where you know you’ll get turned down. Eventually getting told “no” won’t scare you, and you can start living life boldly.
Answer: D – It is indeed a way to make yourself casual with being told “no.” The whole closet thing is a different technique where you discard 28 things a day for 10 days. It’s actually quite liberating, but that’s not where the idea for this book came from.

In Sliding Home by Kathy Lyons—August 13, 2018 Brazen release—my good girl heroine is putting herself through rejection therapy as a way to get bolder. She realized she’s become too timid in her life and this is her way of forcing herself to embrace life. Of course, she expects to get rejected by celebrity short stop Jake, but isn’t and the sexy hilarity that ensues will make you laugh and swoon because they really do have to work hard to get to their happily ever after.

And now…are you ready for the cover, Fresh Fiction review, and back cover copy? Please say yes! Here they are! And don’t forget to leave a comment below. One lucky commenter will win a signed print copy of Hitting It, the first book in the series. Plus a limited edition Locker Room Dairies café mug!

Cheeky and clever, Sliding Home is a fun, fast-paced romance you won't want to miss!" – Jessica Lemmon, bestselling author of the Bad Boy Billionaires series

Shy and reserved, good girl Ellie McDonald is determined to break out of her shell–and her relationship rut. First order of business, woman up and finally ask her longtime secret crush, Jake Armstrong on an old-fashioned date. She's not at all his type–which is great. Once Jake turns her down she can finally move on. Except he says yes...

MVP short-stop Jake Armstrong has tried to keep his bad boy nature under wraps. But there's nothing he likes more than tempting sweet Ellie to the dark side. No one need know.

But when the hotel catches fire and their rescue–while nearly naked–is caught on camera, the two have a PR problem. Jake's solution is a fake relationship, just for the season. Only for Ellie, there's nothing fake about it…

Re: Kathy Lyons | Rejection Therapy

I'd think rejection therapy is difficult. VERY difficult.

You're a strong woman, Kathy!
(Sara Reyes 2:00pm August 16, 2018)

This book sounds absolutely fantastic, but I wouldn't expect
anything less from Kathy Lyons she's an amazing writer.
(Maria Dalmau 2:03pm August 16, 2018)

I'm starting to think I need to set up my own program. Books
are my best friends. I'm very introverted and recently
missed a family gathering because of it. Looking forward to
loving this book.
(Candy Voisine 2:47pm August 16, 2018)

Rejection therapy sounds crazy hard, but sounds very cleansing.
(Christina Cochran 4:24pm August 16, 2018)

I don't think I need any help getting rejected. Rejection
therapy sounds like it's a desensitizing session that makes
you crave positive attention. I do like strong female
leads like in your book Sliding Home.
(Alyson Widen 12:01pm August 17, 2018)

This book is definitely going to the top of my TBR!
(Sara Ording 7:19am August 17, 2018)

Love the sound of this book... definitely on my want list!
(Colleen Conklin 12:17pm August 17, 2018)

Of course it's "d" but in this context, I'd say "b".....and
so hard to do!
So excited about this book!
(Kathleen Bylsma 4:30pm August 17, 2018)

Rejection therapy sounds soooo negative, but it seems to bring about an interesting situation for our heroine. The negative became a positive. This sounds like a fun book to read.
(Anna Speed 9:27am August 18, 2018)

Rejection therapy - no thanks, but the book does look
(Jason Lawless 11:22am August 18, 2018)

I’ve been rejected lots but it’s good because I have a wonderful husband
now! So I don’t need rejection therapy but would love to win this book!
(Lori Giampa 3:04pm August 18, 2018)

I hadn't heard of rejection therapy but I kind of like the
idea. Getting over the fear of being rejected and being
embarrassed is a good thing. In business you have to put
yourself out there to get new customers and that means
getting rejected.
(Mary Songer 3:42pm August 18, 2018)

Interesting concept,can't wait to read the book!
(Amy Beck 12:44pm August 19, 2018)

my parents were way ahead of things - they practised Rejection
Therapy when I was a kid!
(Diane Sallans 8:11pm August 19, 2018)

Love your books! Thanks for the great contest!!
(Teresa Ward 9:14pm August 20, 2018)

Love the idea of this book. Sounds like it can either go
either way.
(Rhonda Platts 9:43pm August 20, 2018)

Never heard of it but sounds interesting.
(Michelle Mendoza 10:38pm August 20, 2018)

I can never say NO to my boss! maybe I should!! can't wait to read!!
(Jennifer Beck 8:55pm August 21, 2018)

No to a boss may not work, because they insist the work
goes forward, no matter what. Looks like a steamy read.
(Alyson Widen 11:58pm August 21, 2018)

I've never heard of this. I think choice "c" would definitely
be a good way for anyone to declutter.
(Tina Rucci 7:21pm August 22, 2018)

I'm pretty good at getting told no, but I need help with
saying no. I might try B just to save my sanity.
(Catherine Wolverton 12:45pm August 23, 2018)

D. You do something daily where you know you’ll get turned
down. Eventually getting told “no” won’t scare you, and you
can start living life boldly.
(Cassandra Darensbourg 10:11pm August 23, 2018)

can't wait to read and I LOVE your covers!!!
(Jennifer Beck 6:42pm September 1, 2018)

(Nina Crespi 8:22pm September 1, 2018)

I'm ready for some rejection therapy. The therapy part, not
the rejection part.
(Candy Voisine 9:04pm September 1, 2018)
