Okay so if you saw my review yesterday you already know I am a HUGE fan of Crossing the Line! It is a book like no other and one I can guarantee I will not forget! It's so good that I know when the second book releases I won't even need a refresher because there's no way I am forgetting the awesomeness that was between those pages! Yes I am fangirling HARD my friends! Well today I get to fangirl more because I am taking part in the blog tour for the writing God Meghan Rogers! For my stop I am sharing a character playlist for my one of my favorite characters Travie Elton!!!
Travis Elton, codename Scorpion, is the top agent at the International Defense Agency (IDA). Or at least he was until his enemy, Jocelyn Steely, arrived. She claims she’s a double agent now, spying for the IDA, but Travis isn’t buying it. Here are some songs that best describe Travis, and Travis and Jocelyn’s dynamic.
1. “We Will Rock You” Queen
When Travis goes on a mission, he is confident in his ability to execute. He doesn’t lose often, but when he does it’s almost always to Jocelyn.
2. “Pumped Up Kicks” Foster the People
The only way Travis gets beaten is by someone who is faster than him—someone who can, essentially, outrun his gun. It’s exactly why Jocelyn has had so much success against him in the past.
3. “Enemies” Shinedown
This is very much how Travis feels about Jocelyn when she first arrives at the IDA. He’s not happy she’s there and he’s not at all sympathetic to her situation.
4. “Here It Goes” Jimmy Eat World
Travis thrives on being in control of a situation. Jocelyn’s presence threatens that control.
5. “Hall of Fame” The Script featuring will.i.am.
Before Jocelyn showed up, Travis worked really hard to be the best agent in the IDA. If the IDA had a hall of fame, he’d be in it.
6. “Come with Me Now” KONGOS
Travis is insistent that Jocelyn stick with him when she first arrives at the IDA. He doesn’t trust her to be out of his sight.
7. “Warriors” Imagine Dragons
This song is a lot about pride, and having pride in the work you’ve done. Travis has a lot of pride in his job and in what he’s done for the IDA.
8. “Alibi” The Downtown Fiction
Travis badly wants to know why Jocelyn is at the IDA and he’s sure she’s there to do damage.
9. “Citizen Soldier” 3 Doors Down
Travis takes great pride in protecting those that need it and in the work the IDA does.
10. “Hey Brother” Avicii
Travis is very loyal and he looks out for his people.
11. “I’ll Be Good” Jaymes Young
Travis is one of the IDA’s best agents, but when he makes a mistake, he takes it pretty hard. He feels like he has to work to be better.
12. “The Deepest Well” Yellowcard
This song is a little bit like Jocelyn and Travis’s dynamic, but in reverse. Jocelyn dragged Travis down for years and now they’re working together.
13. “Let’s Kill Tonight” Panic! At the Disco
Travis knows better than anyone that there’s nothing ordinary about Jocelyn.
14. “Gonzo” The All-American Rejects
By looking forward and understanding the Jocelyn that’s sitting in front of him, Travis starts to see past events with more clarity. He’s also big on talking responsibility for his actions.
15. “Who I Am Hates Who I’ve Been” Relient K
Travis has a high moral code. When he realizes he’s misunderstood a situation and treated someone badly for it, he really hates a part of himself.
I won't lie I just downloaded each and every song on this list and I plan to reread the entire book with them playing in the background! I LOVE this playlist and I can totally see where each song fits!!
Meghan thank you so much for sharing this with us and our readers! You are a rockstar!!
Crossing the Line (The Raven Files #1) by Meghan Rogers
Publisher: Philomel Books
Release Date: April 12th, 2016
If Jason Bourne were a teenaged girl…
Jocelyn Steely was kidnapped as a child and raised in North Korea as a spy. When her agency sends her to the U.S. to infiltrate the very group her parents once worked for, Jocelyn jumps at the chance to turn double agent and finish off her kidnappers once and for all. She convinces the head of the American spy agency to trust her, but it’s not quite as simple as that: Jocelyn has to fight the withdrawal symptoms from the drug that the North Koreans used to keep her in line, and her new fellow spies refuse to trust their former adversary. Worst of all, there might be some new information to uncover about her parents - if she even wants to find out.
This action-packed spy thriller is part Gallagher Girls, part Alex Rider, and part Bourne Identity.
