Blog Tour: Crimson and Clover by Juli Page Morgan

Welcome to my stop on the Crimson and Clover Blog Tour
hosted by Tasty Book Tours.
The other stops for the schedule can be found HERE

BLURB:

Under Katie Scott’s flower child exterior beats the heart of June Cleaver. Though she digs her bellbottoms and love beads, she longs for the idyllic family life she was denied as a child.

Laughed out of San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury after the Summer of Love for believing rock ’n roll and white picket fences can coexist she decides to try her luck in the bohemian neighborhood of Ladbroke Grove in London.

When she discovers her new friend Adam is starting a band with Jay Carey, she’s ecstatic. She’d admired the British guitar god from afar for years, and when she and Jay finally meet the attraction between them is instantaneous.

But life with a rock ’n roll star doesn't lend itself well to white picket fences. And when Katie tells Jay the secret she’s carried for two years it may end the dream before it
begins.

Cindy's Review:

I picked up this book to read because I really wanted to find out what was the 'secret' Katie was carrying for two years. It turns out to be not that small. It's actually a big misstep in live if you want to say it that way. But before you get too curious of what the secret is, I'll tell you more about the book. ;)

Katie is from the United States. After her father died, Katie decided to go to England to start over. She was recommended to go to this place, so she listened and actually picked herself up and sent herself to England. There, she met Adam who seems cool at first, but Adam actually helped change Katie's life a lot. 

Adam is friends with Jay Carey. And Jay Carey is part of a famous band. Katie had always admired him, so she was really excited to meet him. Katie couldn't believe herself. Then, it was like love at first sight. Katie immediately knew that Jay was for her, but that 'secret' of hers will get in the way. 

Soon, Katie meets new friends like Maureen, NIcky, Stuart, and Stephanie. And soon, Katie and Jay gets into a relationship. Everything is perfect. Until that is.......Adam, Nicky, Stuart, and Jay decides to form a band. Yes, Katie misses Jay but she'll live up to it. After a few years had passed, I think the couples in the story moved on with their lives. So yes, they took another step, and got married.

But Katie still has the 'secret' in the way. How can she tell Jay the secret that might change their relationship and their lives? This answers the question though. True love reins all.

I think this book was an awesome romance novel that teaches us about how true love can take over everything. Although there are some scenes in this book I would normally not read, I still lived through it and got to the fabulous ending at the end~ ;))

Rating: (1-10): 7.8!

Author Bio:

   After an exciting (and sometimes surreal!) career in radio broadcasting, Juli Page Morgan was left with a passion for rock ‘n roll and memories of the outrageous antics she'd seen and stories told to her by musicians and bands she’d interviewed over the years. Inspired by these tales, Juli wrote her first novel, CRIMSON AND CLOVER, a rocking romance set in London in 1968.

   Juli lives in Arkansas with her husband and youngest daughter. When she’s not writing she's attempting to force updates on her sixty-year-old house (it fights back!) and trying to convince her husband the world won’t come to an end if the television is turned off. She also listens to a lot of music at maximum volume and exceeds the speed limit when she drives. She’s currently at work on her second romance novel, and yes -- it rocks, too!

  1. So it is a federal crime to blur out a face,
    remove tats and add writing on a photo that may be used for an escort ad? You've got to be kidding. Then there are thousands of guilty parties out there if that is the case.
