The One Thing Blog Tour

Hey everyone!

So I have another exciting review and chance to get an ARC for a blog tour.  This tour is for The One Thing by Briana Gaitan.  I got to read her first book The Last Thing and loved it!!  I was so excited to hear about this book coming out.

Anyway, let’s get started…

As always….  the book cover!!!

Synopsis:

When everything falls apart, he’s the one thing that holds me together.

Ginger Teague may seem like your typical Hollywood actress with the famous boyfriend, designer clothes, money, and hit TV show, but constantly being in the public eye has its downside.
People seem more interested in her chaotic relationship with her on again/ off again boyfriend than her acting career,and Ginger isn’t dealing with her new found fame in a way she always envisioned. She masks her unhappiness with too many parties and an unhealthy habit of binge drinking. As much as she wants love, men find her as a pretty amusement, not the type of girl you take home to mom and dad.

When she meets Caspian Norwood, they quickly begin a regimen of flirty emails.
He’s a struggling musician that doesn’t quite fit her idea of the perfect boyfriend.
He’s older, mysterious, cultured, knows exactly what to say and do in all the right situations, and Ginger can’t help falling for him. But the world is against them, pushing them apart, and it’s beginning to feel as if they are only meant to be friends.

Review:

       I don’t even know where to start with this book.  It was absolutely amazing!  I mean of course it is king to have romance.  It’s a love story.  I found it so interesting how Briana thought that the characters should have to figure who they really are, not who they want to be, before they could be truly happy with each other.  I have a read a lot of books,  but none of them have considered taking the plot in that angle.  It made The One Thing more interesting.

      While looking for themselves, Ginger and Caspian had to use their own strength to pull them out of the hard problems.  It just helped that they knew if one of them needed help, the other was there to give a little extra push.

      It also made me super happy that I got to see what was going on in Quinn and Chase’s lives also.  It just makes me smile to think about them having a forever relationship!

Hopefully I will be a presence in the world another time this week.

Review of The Last Thing by Briana Gaitan

Yay!!  So it is finally my day to post a review.  I have never been so excited for a blog tour in my life!! I finished this book about a week ago and thought it was amazing.

Synopsis:

     Plagued by past mistakes in both love and life, Quinn Bardot is in a bad place. With nowhere else to turn, she escapes to LA clinging to the promise of a fresh start.

      Chase Crowley is known for being selfish and unbelievably persistent. All he’s ever wanted is to become a successful actor. But now that he is about to have it all, he finds that something is still missing. Money and fame isn’t what he expected.

      After a fervent encounter, the two of them are thrown into a situation that neither is prepared for. Can Quinn extinguish her fears and let Chase in? Can Chase learn to put someone else’s needs before his own?

      Last Thing is a novel all about love, Hollywood, and accepting what life throws at you even if it is the last thing you want. 

      (This is a New Adult Romance novel & contains language & adult situations. Not recommended for readers younger than 17)

            ***The Last Thing is a stand alone book with NO cliff hanger ending. It is book one in the series.***

 

My Rating:

 5 STARS

My Review:

I really, absolutely loved this book!  There is no other way to describe it.  Most roman books are a hit and miss with me because the basic plot has been seen in so many other stories.  Briana wrote this book in such a way that I didn’t feel the need to put it down and start another one.

I really liked how all the loose ends weren’t tied off until the very end.  It made you have to finish it even if it wasn’t your favorite book.  I know for me at least, I don’t like leaving stuff unfinished or being let unsure about something.

Even the secondary characters are seen constantly throughout the book.  You get to see them develop along with Chase and Quinn.  I know that at times, for me at least, the secondary characters can be way more entertaining than the main characters.  Sometimes the author will give them their little moments to shine, and I feel like that is what Briana did.
