- Blog Tour: The Fab Life by Mercy Amare
- Blog Tour: When It's Least Expected by Heather Van Fleet
It’s the life I was born to live: billionaire’s daughters, living amongst the rich & famous. But my mom kept me a secret from my dad. Until now.
I am so out of my league. Fancy parties, expensive cars, and a private school for the elite… It sounds like a dream. But everything is not as perfect as it seems on the outside. Here, the secrets are dirty, and the lies comes easy.
Welcome to my fab life.
“You look amazing,” I hear Gabe’s voice. I turn around, and see him standing inches from me. I take a step back.
“Thanks.” I take a good look at him. He looks good in his designer suit. He even fixed his hair. I have to admit, Gabriel is very gorgeous. If he wasn’t so overbearing I think I could like him. Maybe.
“Where is your date?” He asks.
I shrug. “Your guess is as good as mine. He disappeared about ten minutes ago with Jason and Emmett.”
“His loss is my gain.” Gabriel holds out his hand for me. “May I have this dance?”
I start to say no. I should say no. But, instead, I say “Yes.” What could it hurt? It’s not even a slow song. Once he sees how bad of a dancer I am, he will gladly ditch me.
Gabe takes my hand in his and leads me out to the dance floor. I hate the butterflies that appear in my stomach when he is touching me. But I also love them. No matter how much I want to deny it, Gabriel has a part of my heart. But he can’t keep it.
Just as we step on the dance floor, the song changes.
To a slow song.
Gabe smiles mischeviously, and pulls me close to him. I put a couple of inches between us, but he pulls me closer. I should pull away, but I don’t. Our stomachs are touching, and my chest is against his.
“I don’t think you realize how beautiful you look tonight,” Gabe says. “I bet every guy in this place is envious of me right now.”
Gabe’s words are sweet. Ty has said similar things to be, but it feels different coming from Gabe. Maybe more genuine? I don’t know, but I like it.
I am in trouble.
“I’m here with Ty,” I remind him.
My words don’t affect him at all. “You say that, but where is your date? Right now, you’re mine. I intend to enjoy this moment very thoroughly.” He slides he hand down to my lower back, right above my butt. He’s teasing me, and I pretend like it isn’t effecting me. I like his hand there. Part of me wishes he would slide it further down.
I lay my head against Gabe’s chest, and listen to the steady sound of his heart. I smell his cologne, and it smells good. Though I suspect he would smell good no matter what.
Gabe leans down, kisses my cheek, and then whispers in my ear. “One day, you will be mine.”
His words should make me mad, but they don’t. Instead, my heart beats faster. My stomach feels like I’m free falling, only I’m not scared. I’m excited. Whatever this is between us feels so real.
Your boyfriend is Ty, I remind myself.
I choose not to reply to Gabe’s comment. I just let him hold me close as we dance. I try not to think. I just want to feel. I know it’s wrong, but after this dance I will go find Ty. I will forget this ever happened. I can’t fall for Gabe. As bad as Ty thinks he is for me, Gabriel is that much worse. He not only has the ability to break my heart, but to rip it into so many shreds that I may never find all the pieces.
“I wish I would have went after you first,” he whispers again. “You should be mine. It isn’t fair.”
“We don’t always get what we want.” I say it more for me than for him.
“I know that you don’t want him,” he replies. “I see the way you look at me, and I see the way you look at him. You belong with me, Kihanna.”
“Maybe so, but I am with him. Not you.”
“You could be.”
I take a step back. “I’m sorry, I have to go.”

When It's Least Expected is a heart wrenching, sweet love story about two 17 year olds trying to find their way through the crappy hands that they have been dealt and find themselves and that special someone This book has everything.... heartache, heartbreak, ups, downs, laughs, cries, and I never knew exactly how it was going to end. That was what really kept me turning those pages quicker than my fingers could swipe my Kindle. AMAZEBALL!!
Mason and Harley were absolutely, positively matches made in heaven. They complimented each other so well and their constant banter hooked me from the minute they met. Some book couples have to rub off on you, not these two... they are peas and carrots, hot dog and mustard, peanut butter and jelly made for each other. Their connection was instantaneous and brought out the best and worst in each other. They had me belly laughing with nicknames (AKA Little Beast), they were both extremely strong willed individuals who fed off of each other, locked horns, and gave off the you suck... but please suck me vibe! LOL
There were parts of WILE that I had to bookmark my Kindle only to regain my composure and not wake my entire house up from my boo-hooing. The part where Mason explains why he calls Harley his Little Beast... get your tissues ready! Both of these young lovers had their fair share of heartache. Mason thinks he is leaving his sunny California for some boring small, backwater town in Nebraska. Little does he know that he will meet the girl of his dreams and his other half there. I thought this book had the perfect mix of all emotions and wish now that I wouldn't have devoured it so fast so I wouldn't be finished with it already.
