Knotted Roots by Ruthi Kight Blog Tour



An Excerpt from Knotted Roots


“I’m not running from anything, Chase,” I spat his name at him, hoping my words would make him release me.  “You need to let me go.”
“I can’t do that.  Ya need a friend right now, and it seems I’m the only one volunteering for the job.” I have friends! Lots of them!  Well...I had friends.  Before I came down here.  I hadn’t actually heard from anyone from back home since my last “chat” with Amber.
I jerked my arm out of his grasp and tried to stare him down, but he was better at this game than I was. “You think you’ve got me all figured out, don’t you?  You’ve known me all of a couple of weeks, but you know me better than I know myself, right?” I wrapped my arms around my midsection, trying to hold the pain I was feeling inside.  “What’s the point of all of this? Why the hell do you care?”
He shook his head, completely exasperated with my dramatics.  I wanted to open up to him.  A part of me was screaming to grab hold of him and tell him everything, but that damn wall I had built around my heart just wouldn’t let me.  Even after all these years, Kevin was still winning.  “Maybe one day you’ll get it Roxie.  Maybe one day you’ll see that there are genuinely good people out there.  People who aren’t out to screw ya over or hurt ya.  But until then, you’re going to be one very lonely young woman.”
He walked away from me, his hands fisted at his sides.  I wasn’t about to let him get the last word, even though the rational part of my brain was yelling at me to shut up.  “You don’t know shit Chase Matthews! Not a damn thing!” I yelled to him, but he ignored me, continuing on his path.  I kicked at a rock on the ground, sending it skittering across the dirt.  It should have made me feel better, but it didn’t. 
The only thing that would make me feel better right then would have been grabbing that infuriating boy and holding him to me.  Even after everything that had just happened, all I could think about was kissing him.  I let out a frustrated growl and then stalked off in the direction he had gone.  I didn’t need him at all.  I just wanted him, and that was so much worse.











Partying with friends and scoring a flawless tan is about all Roxie has on her list of things to make her Hampton's summer perfect.
Her parents, however, have other plans and Grandma Betty's farm is just one of them.
Just as her life is in shambles and the quaint town is suffocating her, she meets Chase.
Somewhere in the mix of bummer summer and small town doldrums, he becomes the boy she can't seem to avoid falling for. Just adding him to the picture, her stay starts to get better, even if she knows it has to end with the summer holidays.
That is until Betty drops a life-shattering bomb.
Roxie must make a choice that will change her life forever. What happens when a spoiled brat from New York learns the true meaning of love, loss, and forgiveness?
Can Chase and Roxie find a way to be together or is this just another summer romance?


Ruthi Kight currently lives in her hometown of Columbia, SC, with her fiancé and five year old daughter. She has an unhealthy addiction to books, music, and chocolate, but not necessarily in that order.

When her dream of being a rock star didn't work out, she focused on her other passion: writing. She is the author of Knotted Roots, a YA Coming of Age story, and is currently working on two other novels that are due out this year.
