BLOG TOUR: Sharing You by Molly McAdams *REVIEW, GIVEAWAY, and Special Blog Post*

Twenty-three year old, Kamryn Cunningham has left all she’s ever known and moved to a small town where no one knows her name, who her parents are, or her social status in the horseracing world. Months after opening her own bakery and evading attempts of being set up by her new best friend, she meets Brody. Kamryn fights the instant pull between them because there’s a detail she can’t dismiss. Brody’s married.

To say that twenty-six year old, Brody Saco has had a rough marriage would be an understatement. After marrying his pregnant girlfriend, he spends the next six years in a relationship filled with hatred, manipulation and guilt involving a tragedy that happened five years earlier. When he keeps running into his sister-in-law’s best friend, Kamryn, he can’t ignore that she makes him feel more with just one look than his wife ever has; and soon he can’t continue fight his feelings for her.

When staying apart proves to be too difficult, Brody and Kamryn enter a relationship full of stolen moments and nights that end too soon while they wait for Brody to file for divorce. But the guilt that comes with their relationship may prove to be too much for Kamryn, and Brody might not be strong enough to face the tragedy from his past in order to leave his conniving wife.

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughters. When she's not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm ... or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.

How did you feel when you pushed the publish button on your first book and how does it feel now? ~ Question submitted by a fan

Well, to be honest, I really didn't feel much other than relief that it was finally about to be published. When I finished Taking Chances, my hubby and I started talking about "What now?" I'd never planned on publishing any of my stories, but since I'd completed that one, I decided to look into self-publishing since I knew a lot of my favorite authors did that from what I read on their websites. I spent months researching everything about it on google and in books, then went about editing it myself (obviously, haha), copyrighting it, and getting a cover done. So by the time I finished all those things, it's safe to say I was so sick of Taking Chances, that I was just ready to upload it. 

I hadn't done any promoting, only six people even knew what I was doing and liked my author page; and most of those people consisted of me, the hubby, and two people from work. With that, we didn't expect the book to go anywhere, and Cory and I said if 100 people bought it within a years time, we would be ecstatic. I could've never imagined the response it would immediately get, so I never had time to be nervous. I pushed the button, went to sleep, and then my whole world changed the next night. So unfortunately, like I said, I only felt relief when I hit publish for the first time. No excitement, no nervousness. 

Now though, even though my publishers hit the button instead of me, there is ALWAYS a huge amount of stomach-twisting nerves, and a whole lot of "I don't wanna look!" hahaha. The feeling never goes away or lessens, but it's always such a thrill.

REVIEW by Shanean

I knew what it was all about going in and no one can write a LOVE TRIANGLE like Molly McAdams. I am just so happy I made it through this one in one piece.  

Author Molly McAdams makes me question life sometimes and look at things in a new way.  Her books tell it how it is rather than how it should be.  I love a pretty love story but prefer the in your face reality of life with a HEA, because at least in a book you can write the HEA most of us don’t get.  We all know that love isn’t always perfect and sometimes you find yourself breaking the rules.  So thank you for having what it takes to break the rules Molly and write about the not so pretty side of love.

I could not look at these characters as cheaters  And these two characters really needed that HEA.  I thought about the no-no’s of cheating in the back of my head but the heat level between Brody and Kamryn put that thought to rest quickly.  I just couldn’t get enough of these two and found myself thinking why couldn’t it just be easier for them.  I really wanted Brody and Kamryn to be together.  The love was just gushing of the page and I wanted to just squish that little miss priss Brody was married to if you could call it a marriage.  The girl was sick in the head. But just when I thought all the drama was going to revolve around her Molly McAdams through in the twist that floored me.  

So how do you make a book even better as you read it??  Have Molly McAdams write it.  She rocked this one.  I just wish she would have flattened out that little snot Olivia.  I so wanted to back over her with my car.  

FINAL THOUGHTS: I as a reader like these types of books because I see it as a book and a way to lose myself in a romance for awhile.  The content of the subject matter does not bother me because it is after all a fictional story even if she based it on true events.  So for those of you that cannot get past cheating or a love triangle be aware, be warned or stay away.   For the rest of you that are Molly McAdams fans and love a good emotional rollercoaster ride full of drama and angst.  Hop on over and one click it now!!
