When Its Least Expected Blog Tour

Synopsis


Moving on after a tragedy can be impossible – especially when
you’ve been dealing with them for over two years. But it’s her senior year, and Harley Anderson is more than ready to do just that, even though the skeletons in her closet can’t exactly be hidden.

Enter Mason Daniel, the egotistical, sexy, surfer boy from
California – a boy with his own hidden demons, and an even bigger secret agenda.

Mason isn’t right for Harley. He knows this better than anyone.
He’s the epitome of a runner – a guy who takes what he can get,
only to split a short while later. But he can’t deny the emotions that Harley brings out of him, so he’s going to break his rules for once.

He should have known what it would lead to…

Two kindred souls – both lost and then found. Will they fail,in their search for contentment and
happiness, or will they find true love, when it’s least expected?

(This is a MATURE young adult book, NOT a new adult book. Recommended for 16+ due to some sexual situations, mature circumstances, and language.)




Review


Okay first off.. please note the time of this email.. and the fact that I have to be up for work in less than 4 hours and you know.. this one hooked me.

It's a 4 star for me, and I'll get to why it's not a 5 star in a minute.

This book made me laugh, made me cry, made me hold my breath and want to throw things.. in the space of minutes.   Harley, her twin brother David, her best friend Abigail.. Maisy and Mason.. I love them all.  Harley has got some issues, for sure, but Mason is just the guy to help her through them.  There are a lot of plot twists and turns, and I don't want to give anything away.  Mason is a surfer boy from California who lost his dad.  He moves with his sister, mom and grandpa to Nebraska.  He's only planning on staying for 6 months and then going home.  Then... he meets Harley.   Harley has a twin brother who lost his leg in an accident, and Harley is carrying around some serious baggage.  She thinks Mason is the answer to her issues.  He's not so sure he is.  This is a HEA, but it comes with a price.

The only reason I couldn't give this 5 stars... the editing.  It's pretty bad.  She's got name switches a couple of times between David and Mason.. wrong words like site when she means sight and some sentences that just flat out don't make sense.  Letters missing, whole words missing.  That being said, the story line and the plot twists capture you and it didn't bother me as much as it would have normally.  I for sure noticed it though, and I hope she can get the stuff corrected, because it really is an awesome book.

Excerpt
“Okay, okay, I’m sorry…stop…please, Mason, stop!” She pleaded and begged until finally his tickling subsided. Her breath turned heavy, heaving even, and she couldn’t catch it, a wasted effort to even try, especially when his eyes went from playful to wicked-hot in less than a second.
She was enchanted by his intensity; unnerved at the same time.
He finally let go of her hands, but he didn’t move. Then slowly, mindlessly, she reached up to run her fingers from the roots of his hair to the tips. She marveled at its softness, completely in awe of him the longer she studied the various shades. Blond, brown, sandy – like the beach. Mason sucked in a breath, growing tenser by the second. She pulled her hand down. That ticking time bomb she had glimpsed earlier came back.
“Harley…” It was a plea, not a question and he lowered his face to hers, leveling their foreheads together. “Harley, I want you…”
