BLOG TOUR ~ BEST OF ME by LK Farlow

Today we are delighted to be on tour with  LK Farlow’s all-new enemies-to-lovers standalone romance, BEST OF ME


For as long as I can remember, I’ve been the dark to my sister’s light—the awkward loner to her social butterfly. Growing up, she had it all: our parent’s unyielding approval, perfect grades, a permanent spot at the popular table, and the attention of the hottest guy ever—Duke Kincaid.

After eighteen years of living in her shadow, I couldn’t wait to escape—to finally be my own person. Yet here I am, I’m back in my hometown, once again in Valorie’s shadow. Only now, it’s eternal.

I had life all planned out: join the force, marry Valorie Parsons, and start a family of our own. I have the job, but the girl and all my dreams died before my very eyes.

Finally ready to move on, I agree to a blind date. Imagine my shock when I arrive and find, Valorie’s twin sister, waiting across the table from me. Mallory should be a reminder of all that I’ve lost, but instead she feels like my redemption . . . like maybe life’s giving me a second chance.

But, how can I be enough for her when I’ve already given her sister the best of me?

This author delivers a powerful and emotional second chance romance. When a book starts with someone dying then you know you’re in for a rollercoaster ride of emotions.

Duke is a police officer who planned to propose to the love of his life Valorie but when she dies in tragic circumstances, his heart was put on hold. He gets on with his job as a cop and coasts along in life until his dead girlfriend’s twin sister comes into town. He hated her at first but gradually he becomes drawn to her, surely it is because Mallory is Valorie’s spitting image right?

Mallory has always been overshadowed by Valorie, in school achievements and even with their parents’ affections. When she finished high school, Mallory couldn’t wait to get out of town and make her own way in life. Two years later she is offered a job in the next town from where she grew up so she figured it’s enough to keep her distance from her painful past. And then Duke happens, her dead twin’s boyfriend. Her attraction to him is taboo and she knows she shouldn’t feel this way but the heart wants what the heart wants.

Told in dual points of view this book is overflowing with angst, has a great storyline and is well-paced. Duke’s character is set up as the broody hero with a tragic past who can’t seem to move on. When he meets Mallory, he becomes the quintessential douche who takes an instant dislike to her (mainly because of a preconceived notion) but at the same time, is also attracted to her.

Throughout the book Mallory was always the vulnerable heroine who wore her heart on her sleeve. Her back story on why she left and her relationship with her parents was loosely explained. I wished the author took more time to expound on the mother’s volatile relationship with one of her daughters. Apart from this small niggling detail in the book, I totally enjoyed the slow burn romance between Duke and Mallory and how he tried to win her back. The secondary characters in this book: Alden and Natalie (Best Laid Plans), Nate and Jenny (Best of Intentions) provide the much-needed light and comical moments to balance out this romantic tale. A great read for a lazy weekend!

Nate follows my line of sight and smirks. He may be my best friend and partner, but damn if I don’t want to knock that smarmy-ass look right off his face. And when he opens his mouth, the feeling intensifies. “It’s okay to—”

I shoot him a withering glare before stomping off toward Mallory.

I don’t stop until I’m close enough to feel the heat of her body. She has to tilt her head back to see me, and when our eyes meet, my name topples from her lips on a breathy sigh. “We need to talk.” My tone is all business—my cop voice, as Nate calls it—as I wrap my fingers around her forearm, prepared to drag her along behind me if necessary. Luckily, she comes all too willingly—so why am I still holding on to her?

The feeling of her soft, sun-warmed skin beneath my palm sends little zaps of electricity under my skin, into my muscle. Her nearness has me strung taut like a drawn bow. Here’s to hoping like hell I don’t snap.

Deep down, like really fucking deep, I know I’m acting like a colossal asshole, but much like a prepubescent boy picking on his schoolyard crush, it’s the only way I know how to deal with all of the conflicting feelings she stirs in me.

FINDING STORM by Samantha Towle is LIVE!

We are delighted to be bringing you New York Times bestselling author Samantha Towle’s newest book in the hugely popular
Storm Series, FINDING STORM

 

The son of an icon. 

He was a legend. Rock royalty.

A man I never met.

But I’m measured against him in every aspect of my life.

The only time I feel like me … the real me … is when I’m onstage with my band. But the more we grow in popularity, the more people compare me to him.

I’m not him. And I never will be. If only everyone could figure that out for themselves.

I need a break from it all. 

Then, a confrontation has me jumping in my car, putting LA in my rearview mirror. And a stupid mistake ends up with my car on the side of the road. And straight into the path of a girl who is the exact opposite of everyone else in my life. 

She’s like everything I used to know.

And she has no clue who I am.

Even if she did, I don’t think she’d care.

She thinks I’m cavalier. 

I think she’s intriguing. And hot. Let’s not forget hot.

I’m stuck in this town overnight while my car is being fixed. But I’m thinking I’m gonna stick around a bit longer.

I’m Storm Slater, lead guitarist in Slater Raze and the only child of the late, great Jonny Creed. But, here, right now … I’m nobody. Just a regular guy. 

I’m liking it a whole lot. 

And I’m liking her even more.
