Brooklyn & Beale by Olivia Evans….Blog Tour & Review

BB Ebook cover [123536]

Blurb

The life of a session musician is rarely easy. After consecutive tour cancellations and a stack of unpaid bills, Chloe Bennett fears her dream has come to an end.

Then everything changes.

Indie rocker Reid Ryder needs a replacement violinist for his tour. For Chloe, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime. For Reid, it’s a checkmark off his list. Already battling addiction, guilt, and his inability to write new music, Reid’s hopeful that things are finally falling into place.

But life is never predictable.

When the tour begins, he finds himself drawn to Chloe. She challenges and inspires him. Their onstage chemistry is electric. To the outside world, they’re the perfect match. To those involved, however, it’s not so simple. When Reid’s no longer sure that the future he planned is the one he wants, a choice must be made.

Love…or loyalty.

REVIEW

I have to say it – Olivia Evans is a diamond in the rough. This woman is a phenomenal writer and amazing story teller.

I am always hesitant to read a book from an author that I have not heard much about. And even after reading the blurb, even though it enticed me, I was still a little leery but I went with my gut and believed I wouldn’t be let down.

Let me just say that when a prologue is able to give me chills, the sets the stage for me as to how well this book is going go. And Olivia blew me away. Brooklyn & Beale isn’t her debut novel but god damn, she won me over as a huge fan with this book.

Ok…back to the book.

Brooklyn and Beale is a beautiful and emotional love story. There is no insta-love. There isn’t the steamy and hot sex throughout the whole book. This book is about so much more. It’s about finding ones self. It’s about building friendships and relationships that will last forever. It’s a story of change and growth. It’s a god damn awesome story.

I love the characters that Olivia has created. Chloe is the perfect blend of badass, talent, quirky, and beautiful. Reid is a troubled guy who is trying to find himself again. He’s talented, smart, sexy and fragile. The other characters are quite entertaining and are the perfect balance for the whole story. Olivia does a great job of developing all these relationships to show the bond that people form over time and how strong that bond can be.

Olivia made this story real. It’s simple human nature and reactions and interactions that makes this story honest, raw and so real. You will find yourself half way through and praying the book is never going to end. I love how I felt everything from these characters. There is a lot of tension throughout and that helps propel the book forward and keeps all the emotions burning.

You really have to experience this book first hand yourself. I won’t give you any parts of the plot only because I can’t tell you one thing without having to tell you another. Everything ties together and I won’t ruin this awesome story by giving one tidbit away.

“It was how he loved her that had changed.”

Olivia – I am looking forward to reading so much more from you! As I said earlier, you are a DIAMOND in the rough. I can’t wait to see where you take us next!

EXCERPT

Reid sucked in a sharp breath and leaned forward. In the cover of the darkened stage, his cheek brushed against Chloe’s as he moved his lips to her ear. “Please don’t hate me,” he whispered. He straightened his back, and with a gentle touch, wiped the wetness from her cheek.

 

Chloe squared her shoulders. “I don’t,” was all she said before turning toward the crowd and readying her violin for the next song.
