**Promo Tour** Finding Sam & A Reliant Love ~ Taylor Lavati

Finding Sam
by Taylor Lavati
Promotional Tour

Sometimes, the past isn’t
supposed to be forgotten. 

Sam is convinced he’s cursed. Everything he
touches dies. He leaves his past behind and travels across the country, hoping
the distance will save the loved ones he’s left. When his car breaks down, he becomes
stranded, finding comfort in a stray dog. 

Despite the fact that he refuses to build any
relationships, the people of Sterling, Colorado wiggle their way into his
heart. His adopted dog, Lucky, shows him he can handle responsibility. His new
boss, Lenny, shows him he has purpose. His neighbor, Izzy, shows him he’s
capable of love again. But can Sam find happiness after he’s lost it all? 

Finding Sam, the sequel to the bestselling novel
of addiction and attraction, A Reliant Love, is a tale of redemption,
acceptance, and finding yourself.

“I shouldn’t be
here,” I mutter under my breath. 
“Like in this town
or here in the kitchen with me?” She quirks her head to the side and crosses
her arms over her chest. It’s defensive, but not, at the same time. More likely
a precautionary arm cross.
“Do you not like
me? I know I can talk a lot, and I’m trying hard to be positive in this awkward
situation. Sometimes it’s just one comment too much that can set someone off.
I’m sure you can tell, but I’m normally really upbeat and positive.” She nods
like a hundred times.
“Anything can
happen at anytime, so you have to live every day like it’s your last. That guy
just pisses me off.” She shakes her head, dragging in a loud breath. 
“Listen, I’m not
begging you to like me,” she says as she slams the refrigerator door shut.
“It’s just that you’re new around here, and I saw you as a clean slate. I just
want to be friends, so if you have a girlfriend, that’s fine.” She steps
forward and grabs my forearm. I stare down at where our bare flesh connects.
“Seriously, I’m not a relationship person. I don’t believe in relationships,
but I do respect them. I’d never step on another girl’s toes. I just want to be
“I’m leaving the
second my car is fixed.” My words ring with finality. Her hand falls from me as
she steps backwards towards the fridge like I slapped her.

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for my honest review.

I could not wait to start book two.  If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book was better.   Taylor Lavati has an excellent way of telling a story.  You will not want to stop reading.  She has a way of making you be able to feel the emotions of the characters, be able to place yourself in the situation as if you were the character.  She is definitely one of my favorite authors.  Sam makes you want to root for him to beat this addiction and to finally learn to love himself. His guilt is very overpowering and he finds his peace in the arms of the one person he never thought he would find the arms of someone who has also fought the same battle.  You cannot help but fall in love with Sam and Izzy.  She is so genuine and is exactly what he needs.  Lenny, the grandfather we all could love is a perfect addition to this series.  Lenny was a good example that you meet people for a reason.  He gave Sam a lesson in life that forever changed him..... You have to love yourself before you can truly love someone else. Once you pass that hurdle, the possibilities are endless.  I highly recommend you read this series.  I will be reading more from this author.  You will not be disappointed.

A Reliant Love

Nathalie Carter wants one thing: independence. She has paid her dues by living at home under her parents’ watchful eyes, earning grades to give her a ticket out and joining clubs she had no interest in to get into college. 

She plans to experience things she believes every new adult should—from falling in love to playing beer pong and pulling an all-nighter to skipping class because she’s too hungover. But nothing ever seems to go as planned, and she gets pulled into a world she never imagined existed. 

Samuel Torrington’s past refuses to release him from its vise-like grip; but he has a plan, and once his senior year of college is over, he can finally move away and start anew. His addictions help him get through day-to-day life, but he’s
constantly battling darker demons. 

Fate brings the two together, and chance takes them on a roller coaster ride that neither would dare hop off. Within destiny’s grasp, they realize there are two things impossible to fight—addiction and attraction. 

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for my honest review.

After reading book 1 of this series....I am hooked.  This is an excellent series.  The author does an excellent job portraying the life of a drug addict and how sometimes the choices they make have consequences.  Natalie, a new student, falls in love with Sam. Hoping she will be enough for him, she tries to help him beat his addiction.  She pays the ultimate price against an opponent that she cant beat.  Sam, whose past seems to keep hold of him, uses drugs to kill his demons.  In the end, he realizes to late what matters most to him.  Although, he loses the one woman who would do anything for him, he is able to rekindle his friendship with the one guy he misses most, his best friend.  I really loved how the book ended.  It leaves you wondering how Sam will handle this tragedy.  Will it push him over the edge and finally destroy him or will he finally be able to put his past behind and move on?  You will have to read book 2 to find out. I fell in love with this series and I am sure you will too.
