September 19 through October 10!
What a great tour! The reviews were awesome, and I want to thank Anna of RBTL for creating such great buzz!
Here are a few of the reviews:
Though she’s nursing a broken heart, Briar Moore has promised herself that she’ll no longer live her life for others. She’ll live life her way and is intent on enjoying every minute of it. Granted, her mind and heart refuse to let go of the past, reminding her of the little things at every turn. All that changes when she comes across the gorgeous Hayden Crewe. He’s everything she never knew she wanted in a man, something her mind and body remind her of every time they’re together.
Another great read, Alexa has given us a second titillating read to sink our teeth into. This time, we get to see Briar’s story told in all its glory. She and Hayden mesh in such wonderful ways. The heat between them is both sweet and sexy.
These two character complement each other just as much as Dahlia and Asher do. I love the fact that the author has kept things centered around this wonderful family and the friends they meet along the way. Granted, not everything is hunky-dory between all of them, but we get to see these characters grow every step of the way. These characters have been constantly dealt hard blows. Life hasn’t been kind, but they’ve all managed to come out on top.
The Seattle Sound series is definitely a series you’ll want to pick up and dive into. Alexa gives us diverse stories that are tied to one another in more ways than one. I’m so looking forward to book three. So can’t wait!

Hayden Crewe loves his job and the perks that come with it. But then his plans change. Briar Moore isn’t sure where she wants her personal life to go. She’s a woman with a lot of passion and it comes through as we get to know her. What impressed me was that the author didn’t have our two main characters meet right away. We get to see some of who they are first and what’s going on in their lives that eventually brings them together. A disappointment was not actually being able to hear Hayden’s band play as I was reading.
This is a story which shows that sometimes even in grief something can flourish. Our author reminds her readers that not all families are like the Nelsons or the Reeds (yes I know that these two families may be a little old for some of you readers). Families split for one reason or another but I think it’s sad to think of someone – especially a parent – dying alone. Sometimes we just need someone to show us the way. It’s a story that develops over time – this is how we fall in love with the characters.
There are also ups and downs – just like in any relationship.
Life is hard and not always kind but having someone there with you helps. The sad moment for me was not knowing more about the characters that are introduced in book one of the series. The good news is that I can go back and see what Dahlia and Asher are all about. And not knowing about their backstory did not take anything away from my enjoyment of reading Hayden and Briar’s story. This is one of those books that shows why authors are so good at what they do – creativity. Just because I know how to speak, think, and write my name doesn’t mean that I’m creative enough to think up and create a whole world for two people that don’t exist. I found Ms. Padgett’s ending to be interesting because I didn’t feel that it was an ending at all. It felt open-ended so it will be interesting to see how she continues this series.
