Genre: Contemporary Romance

Tour organized by: AToMR Tours; http://atomrbookblogtours.com
When all hope for moving on from a life filled with pain and abuse was gone, Emily Watson closed herself off to the world, packed her bags, and moved across the country in search of a new life. What she found was a career she adored and friends she loved. It wasn’t a full and complete life, but it was definitely better than what she knew before.
When all hope for being loved and accepted for who he was instead of what he had was gone, Taylor Carter decided that trusting people outside of his family wasn’t really smart and would only lead to disappointment. With his world turned upside down, his life became about his work, and every new relationship was meaningless and superficial. He was safe and definitely content but never truly happy.
When all hope for staying awake during a long day was gone, Emily and Taylor found themselves at the same coffee cart. Little did they know then that the worst coffee they’d ever had would forever change their lives.
When hopeless people are blinded by an endless pain, when contentment and safety feel like the best options, and when love seems impossible, they may just find an exception.
✧Favorite Quotes Guest Post✧
“And why the hell would you do that? Urges to call me should never be fought, Ems. If you want to call me, then call me.” – Taylor
Patty: This is a turning point in their relationship. The moment where Taylor makes Emily see that things are different for them.
“He’s different, Z. I don’t even know how to explain, but he is. He makes me feel safe and calm and happy. With him I’m— I feel like I’m—me again. The person I was before all the shit. I have some of that with you and J, but it’s different.” – Emily
Patty: I love this part (and the conversation where Emily says that) because it’s the first time Emily openly shows her feelings and how special Taylor is to her.
“And you haven’t only changed my past, you know. I’ve told you before, you’ve changed everything, and you keep on changing it. Every second we’re together I’m different, and it’s because of you.” – TaylorPatty: For me, this is a summary of who Taylor is and what Emily means to him. All you need to know about him is right here.
About the Author
I’m Patty, and words have always been a passion of mine. I’ve always loved to read them, write them and learn them in other languages. Last year, I’ve decided to take that passion and turn it into a book, the result was Exception, my very first novel due this October.
Whenever I’m not sitting behind my computer, I’m either enjoying the company of my dear hubby, Alex, and our four four-legged babies or reading. I’m a firm believer in long hand written letters, love of any kind and good stories.
