♥Kenna Reverie|| Blog Tour ♥

Kenna is a pretty typical single mom. She takes her 5 kids to dance, soccer, and scouts. She just happens to make her living as an erotic book blogger. She has accepted the fact that she will probably always be single, until her dream fantasy man is sitting right in front of her.

Jax likes control. He's never considered love or romance as an option, just as a necessary means to win a woman he's interested in. So when he eyes a beautiful woman at a coffee shop and can't stop thinking about her, he wonders what he has to do to possess her.

This is the hilarious story of two people who in a world of dreams are made for each other, but in reality could not be more incompatible. Will they find a way to make the dreams that live in their fantasies real, or are they destined to live without each other?




This is my stop during the blog tour for Kenna’s Reverie by Claire Granger . This blog tour is organized by Lola's Blog Tours. The blog tour runs from 1 till 14 August, you can view the complete tour schedule on the website of Lola’s Blog Tours: http://lolasblogtours.net/blog-tour-kennas-reverie-by-claire-granger/

 
What a fantastic quick paced read, i instantly felt related to Kenna (okay, i want to be a blogger that sits in a coffee shop and gets paid for it) This was a book, about a book i would read (does that make sense?) Well, it was, we meet Kenna - a book blogger, who spends her time carting her five boys around and reading romance so when a beautiful man, that Kenna has only ever imagined from her books wants to take her out, she is shaken.

Jax is the kind of man you read about in romance books, and here he stands in front of Kenna, he likes control, and he doesnt do relationships, but something about Kenna is pulling him in. For her, he is willing to change. I liked this book, in some parts it could of been more in depth, but at its heart - its the kind of novel i love, its short - slightly smutty with a firecly independent woman and swoon worthy billionaire.

Excerpt 1:
{Kenna}
I knew before I started reading that this was going to be a cliché. Weak girl meets billionaire bachelor. Let the story unfold. You know, the cliché we all make fun of but all secretly envy. Who cares if the plot is predictable? For that matter, all romance is predictable because in order to be considered romance, there must be a happy ending right? So really, everything in between is just filler to get to the happy ending.
Whatever. I love the filler. Don’t judge me.
As I read each page describing the initial encounter between the heroine and the hero, I kept thinking about Jax.
All those butterflies, sparks, good happy feelings that every good romance describes at the first encounter? Us book bloggers would call it the “insta-love”.
Yeah, that shit.
I had spent the last 10 years of my short 27 years of life reading every piece of romance I could get my hands on and never ONCE thought that it was real. It was all just a fantasy.
But within moments of meeting a total stranger, albeit a totally panty-dropping gorgeous stranger, I had every one of those fantasy inspired feelings.
So, the question running through my head, was it real or did I just imagine all of those feelings because I spend too much reading about them?
And if it was real, was it some sort of sick cosmic joke? Where was Jax when I was 22? 23?
I heard the front door open and slam shut.
“Mom!” I heard my son Blane’s voice yell out.
Sighing I stood up to go downstairs and start dinner. You know, to live my life. My very well thought out and planned life. That I wanted.
The life that had no place for a man like Jax Dowe.
