Blog Tour/Release Blitz: Leaving Amarillo by Caisey Quinn

Dixie Lark hasn’t had it easy. She lost her parents in an accident when she was young and grew up in a ramshackle house on a dirt road in Amarillo with her ailing grandparents and overprotective older brother. Thanks to her grandfather, Dixie learned to play a mean fiddle, inspired by the sounds of the greats—Johnny and June, Waylon, and Hank. Her grandfather’s fiddle changed Dixie’s life forever, giving her an outlet for the turmoil of her broken heart and inspiring a daring dream.
            Ten years later, Dixie and her brother Dallas are creating the music they love and chasing fame with their hot band,
LEAVING AMARILLO. But Dixie isn’t enjoying the ride. All she can think about is Gavin Garrison, the band’s tattooed, tortured drummer who she’s loved since they were kids. She knows he feels the connection between them, but he refuses see her as more than his best friend’s little sister.
            Convinced that one night with Gavin will get him out of her system, Dixie devises a plan. She doesn’t know that her brother has forbidden Gavin from making a move on her—a promise he swore he’d always keep—a promise that once broken will unexpectedly change the future for Dixie, Gavin and the band. Will Dixie and Gavin risk it all for a possible love neither has ever thought possible?

My Review
There are only a few authors who can write books that intertwine music into their stories so much that you get so pulled in that you can visualize every performance and feel every emotion. Caisey Quinn is one of those authors. I loved every bit of Leaving Amarillo. I am from the Nashville area, so I have seen the live shows played in those downtown bars and let me tell you, when I was reading this it was like I was transported to one of those places watching Dixie, Gavin and Dallas playing their hearts out. Granted the story wasn't based in Nashville but I imagine all honky tonks are similar!
Dixie, Dallas and Gavin make up the band Leaving Amarillo. Dix and Dallas are brother and sister and Gavin is Dallas' best friend. Dixie has been in love with Gavin for as long as she can remember and let me tell you, I don't blame her! Gavin is hot, but there is so much more about him under the surface and Dixie can see it all. 

 Dixie and Gavin are off the charts hot! I love Dixie and how she finally just says what she wants and then takes it. The whole time I was in her cheering section, cheering her on! Gavin is hot and troubled. Did I say hot? Him and Dixie together are smoking. It's sexy and a tearjerker all in one. 
                        "I want you to touch me. To take me, to own and possess me like you know                                      you already do. I want you- all of you. the good, the bad, and that secret                                          darkness inside you that you never show anyone else. I want to be the one you                                spend your nights with, the one you wake up with, and the one you can't stop                                 thinking about."
I have loved everything I have read by Caisey, but this one is one of my absolute favorites and I will be screaming from the rooftops for everyone to read this! 
Caisey Quinn does not disappoint and I cannot wait for more. I love Dallas and want his story, but am DYING for the rest of Dixie and Gavin. Pick this one up, you will not regret it! This is one of those books I could read over and over again. 
5 bluebird stars! 

Caisey Quinn’s Inspiration for the Neon Dreams series  

Not too long ago (barely over a year), I took a trip to Nashville with some friends. It was one of those last minute “oh my gosh, we have to see this super big artist doing a concert in a tiny venue because they just Tweeted that they’ll be there” type road trips. Unplanned, beef jerky, big gulps, and random road mix cd style adventure. My favorite kind.

However, by the time we arrived at the venue it was packed. Literally. Wall to wall crammed, people spilling out onto the sidewalk, full to maximum capacity packed. Apparently we weren’t the only ones who caught word that a big name artist was going to be there.


We decided to just check out a few local spots instead. In a bar called Crossroads we got comfy, ordered drinks, and started chatting about how bummed we were that we didn’t get to see the original artist we intended to. I can’t even remember now who it was. Here’s why.

As we’re ordering a second—okay, maybe a third—round and deciding if we’re going to just call it a night and get a hotel room or head home (Birmingham is only about three hours away), this glorious sound fills the air. No, it pierces the air, rips through it and grabs everyone in hearing range by the eardrums.

Our conversation—along with many others—ceased instantly. Chill bumps ran up my arms even though it was quite warm and I was wearing a jacket.

Most of the patrons gaped in awe as this young woman played the fiddle as if she’d been born to do that and only that. It was the solo from “Devil Went Down to Georgia” by the Charlie Daniels band and she was rocking it beyond comprehension. Pretty sure even the bartenders stopped what they were doing. The rest of the night was a little blurry, but I know we didn’t leave until that band had played their entire set.

We ended up getting a hotel room but none of us slept. All we could talk about was that band and how amazing they were and how we were kicking ourselves that we didn’t get their name so we could check them out online and hear more. I still look for them when I’m in Nashville and one day I fully expect to hear them on the radio. Whoever they are, they will forever be the band that inspired the Neon Dreams series.

This isn’t the exact band but they’re pretty close! The search continues!

Review: Hush Hush #1 by Anneliese Vandell

Hush Hush #1

Fifty Shades of Grey meets Revenge in this tantalizing new series about a young woman who’s willing to do anything in the name of vengeance.

Something terrible happened to April Morrison when she was eleven years old. When she returns home to New Orleans fourteen years later as “Sophia,” she has only one word on her mind: revenge. She’s got her eye on Charles and Barbara Hawthorne, the crowning jewel of New Orleans’ elite and the ones responsible for turning her life upside down. 

Enter Liam Hawthorne, the couple’s successful, strikingly handsome, and irresistibly dominant thirty-two year old son. When Liam makes a provocative proposal, it occurs to April that he may be just the “in” she needs. But what she doesn’t bargain for is Liam’s insatiable—and thrilling—sexual appetite. And as Liam begins to test April’s limits, she realizes that appearances are not what they seem. 

This book is intended for mature audiences.

My Review
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this book!! I was iffy at first, but once things started to pick up I was pulled in! 
I love the show Revenge and of course I loved 50 Shades of Grey. This book really is the perfect blend of both! 

"Sophia" meets Liam and her whole plan gets turned upside down. It's hard to turn down what he is offering, but it seems to be even harder to not let her revenge get in the way. This book is steamy!! I was shocked by some of the scenes but loved them all the same. I am wondering how April is going to keep all this up and get her revenge without losing her heart! Cannot wait to start the next one!! 

***Complimentary copy received in exchange for an honest review***

4 Stars!
