Hell On Heels By Anne Jolin Book Tour & Review

 

HELL ON HEELS by Anne Jolin
Genre: Women’s Fiction Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 26, 2016
— SYNOPSIS —
I use people. Not in a malicious way, but in the way an addict abuses their substance of choice. People are my vice—men specifically. I crave the emotional high they give me with a unique and reckless disregard for my own well-being—eagerly floating into an unsustainable euphoria, knowing full well that after every high comes an equal, if not more powerful, plummet into a devastating abyss. But like every junkie, I crawl willingly back into the arms of my demons.
Oh, the price we pay to feel loved. We’d all sell our souls to the devil himself for that. Perhaps I have already.
They say that acknowledging that you have a problem is one of the first steps to recovery. Well, in that case, my name is Charleston Smith and I have a fucking problem.

5 Realistic and Heartbreakingly Beautiful Stars!!

This book is going down as one of my favorite reads of 2016 if not the favorite! I’m the type of reader who loves to connect with the characters in a story but most importantly i want that story to make me feel something i mean any type of emotion really and this book did that to me in tenfold! I wasn’t sure what to expect when i was first diving into this book and the cover alone had my curiosity piqued. Everyone has their own demons and some of those demons can turn you into someone that you are not. This story isn’t always a happy one and it showed the true anguish that a person can face in their lives daily. At some points i cried to a point beyond how i usually cry while reading a book, other points i laughed a lot, and hurt when the heroine hurt.

Hell On Heels took my heart broke it into a million little pieces yet somehow by the end i felt like it was glued back together again with a dash of empowerment. The dedication at the beginning of the story made me cry and it’s one of the most beautiful as well as one of the most powerful dedication’s that i have ever read in my life. It not only touched my heart in ways that are rare it made me sit back and appreciate the ones i love more. I liked that Ms.Jolin didn’t pull any punches and everything was so realistic i felt as if i was spying on someone else’s life. This was my first time reading anything by Ms.Jolin and i can promise you right now that it won’t be the last time either. I need a physical copy of this book for my book shelf as soon as possible! It was written to be read multiple times not just once! 🙂


Charleston Smith was a character that had been knocked down in life only to get back up and come back stronger than ever with the scars to prove just exactly what she had endured. She hid the things that tortured and haunted everyday from the outside world. It broke my heart that she had seemingly become two different people due to her struggles in life in general. Heartbreak and loss were all to familiar to her and she worked everyday with the foundation that she created to make sure that others didn’t have to go through what her and her family went through.

I kept crossing my fingers and hoping that she would finally get her happiness without feeling unworthy to the point of throwing it all away. I thought she was strong, smart, definitely not one to mess with, and lastly she was human. I absolutely adored that she never went into things halfway but went in 100% prepared for anything coming her way. When she reflected back on old memories my heart broke with hers and i can honestly say that she is one heroine that i will never ever forget. Charleston was a fighter whether she knew it or not and fight she did.


I highly recommend this story to anyone looking for a book that isn’t the norm whatsoever but it’s unique with such a realness to it you can’t help but have so many emotions torn from your body while reading it! The pace wasn’t slow at all it was great. I loved how certain parts found their way into my heart and held my attention. I thoroughly enjoyed the Author’s writing and i have so many quotes highlighted i lost count at twenty.

If you are looking for a book that not only will make you feel every emotion under the sun but one that will consume your mind in the best way possible this one is most certainly for you. If this sounds like it’s right up your alley, What are you waiting for? Go and One-click this amazing story today! I hope you love it as much as i do! 5 Stars all around!! ❤

 

— EXCERPT

“I’m ruined.” Kevin pouted, plopping down into one of the two patterned high-back chairs in front of my desk.

Fishing my cellphone out, I dropped my purse into the bottom drawer of the massive and incredibly overpriced desk, and placed the palms of my hands onto its distressed white surface.

“He’s so hot,” Kevin continued without delay. “I mean, I follow him on Instagram, but wow-ee! I want little blonde Abercrombie babies with him,” he rattled on, waving his hands in the air. “And Man Bun is like yum with a shot of dangerous, like you just know he’d wake up your neighbours. I’d like to call him Daddy—”

“Jesus.” I shook my head.

Kevin stirred, pulling his perfectly crafted eyebrows together. “What’s he doing here anyways? Are we planning one of his parties?”

Beau Callaway was notoriously known for hosting some of the best campaign parties.

“No. He’s expressed interest in sponsoring the Gala.”

Uncrossing his legs, Kevin’s eyes softened as he leaned forward. “The Gala is this Saturday. Can we manage another sponsor this late in the game?”

The emotions on my face war—they often did this close to the gala—and he noticed. Kevin was as perceptive as he was fabulous.

“Right then. I’ll make it work.” He stood. “Want me to fetch the dream boat for you, boss?”

I nodded. “Please.”

Without another word, he sashayed out the door and my nerves filled up the space he left behind.

I was nervous. Men in general made me nervous until I knew my way around them, but having someone like Beau in my space and here, regarding the gala no less, made me edgy.

I didn’t often mix business with pleasure, as I was messy with one and not the other. Though it’d been nearly three months since my last duet with a man and I was jonesing for a high this close to the gala.

The gala that honoured the memory of Henry.

My addiction prickled at the back of my neck.

 
— ABOUT THE AUTHOR: ANNE JOLIN
Hey y’all,
I was born and raised in Ladner, a small farm town just outside Vancouver, Canada. I grew up riding horses, shooting guns, and driving in trucks.
I never expected to be an author. A massage therapist? Yes. Take over the family construction company? Yes. But an author? No. Writing was something that snuck up on me and rooted itself into my life. It was beautiful to discover that love, and I’m truly grateful to say I’ve found my passion.
Since I’ve always been a creative person, it feels amazing to harness all of that energy and use it to tell a story I love. I enjoy incorporating bits of my real life into the stories I write. What parts are true? Hah. I’ll never tell—what would be the fun in that?
If I could leave y’all with one thing, it’s that life’s far too short to not live it out loud. Drown in your passions, hold on tight to the things that inspire you, and chase your dreams relentlessly. I can promise you without a doubt that you won’t regret it. I know I don’t.
Mad love,
Anne Jolin
