Everblue Blog Tour and a Review


Hey everyone! Welcome to our stop on the Everblue blog tour! For our day Jaime is posting her review of Everblue and because we love this book so much we're giving away one e-book to a lucky commenter. So make sure to comment and leave your e-mail address so we can contact you! Giveaway will stay open until August 30th good luck!

Want to know a little about the book? Here's the description from goodreads.

Best friends share everything with each other. Or do they? Seventeen-year-old Ashlyn Frances Lanski is tired of her boring, single life. Spending time with her best friend Tatiana, dreaming about kissing Tatiana's twin brother Fin, and swimming competitively are her only sanctuary. The girls plan to leave their drab lakeside town far behind for college. But when Tatchi fails to return home after a family emergency, and no one knows where the family has gone, Ash chooses to do something drastic to find them.

Ashlyn is about to discover what she’d thought to be true her whole life, wasn’t, and the truth, too fantastical to imagine. Secrets lurk beneath the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe, secrets that will change Ashlyn's life forever.


Jaime's review....

Let me first start by saying Brenda is a local author so she writes about locations that I know very well in this case it's Lake Tahoe (not Natatoria lol) and that's why I fall so deeply in love with her stories! I also haven't read a mermaid story since The Little Mermaid so I was very excited to read this.

So Everblue takes place in two locations one on the surface and around Lake Tahoe and the other in a magical realm Natatoria both so different and vivid in their own ways. I could feel the chill off the lake and the snow still left around in the the spring setting of the book. I really could visualize the underground world as well.

Onto the characters Ash is the MC and I loved everything about her she is a swimmer (so was I) so I could completely relate to her issues with nerves on race day. She is an amazing and loyal friend when Tatchi her best friend and Fin Tatch's brother and the boy she loves go missing she stops at nothing to find them. Tatchi is an adorable character I love the fight she has in her she wants to live her own life not the one dictated by the Mer's in Natatoria. On to Fin oh sighs whats there to know about Fin? He's a sexy blonde haired blue eyed merman who can even pull off wearing a kilt look sexy. He's also completely in love with Ash you can feel his passion for her burn right of the page! There's also a sexy baseball player named Callahan who stole my heart I absolutely love baseball players if you don't believe me ask my last two boyfriends lol (both baseball players).

This story had me sucked in on page one and kept me up until 4a.m. reading I guarantee once you pick up this book you will not want to put it down! Thanks Brenda for an ARC for review and also for asking us to be a part of the blog tour!

If you want to purchase Everblue it's only $2.99 on Amazon or at Barnes & Noble

  4. Oh this book sounds really, really good. I haven't read many mermaid stories, only ones that briefly touched on them, but have been meaning to. This cover is absolutely gorgeous!

    Don't enter me as I think I bought it, or I will buy it to support the author, though I may want to wait for the print edition. But I'll spread the word.

    Loved your review Jaime!
