{Release Day Review+Excerpt+Giveaway} Going Under by Lexi Ryan @writerlexiryan

Going Under is a new adult contemporary romance (with a college football player, main character- so maybe sports romance) and is the third book in the Blackhawk Boys series by Lexi Ryan. Going Under can be read as a standalone novel. I have not read the first two books in the series, but I am dying to now considering how much I adored this book. I completely fell in love with Going Under. I have been craving a true new adult college romance story for so long, but I haven’t found anything that quite fit the bill. But Going Under was perfect! I love the whole childhood friend’s brother aspect, I love a pseudo second chance romance and I love a good emotional backstory. I really enjoyed the dual narrative in Going Under, between Sebastian and Alex. I was itching to find out what happened to Alex with her scars, and why on earth Sebastian has kept his distance for this long. I knew from the start it couldn’t just… Read more »

Blogversary G!veaway #4- Going Under by Georgia Cates

Blogversary G!veaway #4- Going Under by Georgia Cates

Today I have an interview with Author of Going Under, Georgia Coates! Thanks so much for being here with us today 🙂 Thank you having me as a guest. It is a pleasure to be featured today. 1.  Describe Going Under in a tweet. (140 characters or less) Intense romance between an ambitious boy from the wrong side of the tracks and a girl struggling to find herself outside her perfect world. 2.  I love reading books from a guys point of view. Do you think it’s easier to write a girl’s POV or a guy?  Girl’s POV is so much easier. When you write from a guy’s POV, you have to choose if you’re going to write the way a guy would actually be thinking or if you’ll tone it down. What does this mean? Let’s face it. If I wrote the way a guy actually thought about women and sex, we probably wouldn’t like his character very much. I have to tone it down. A lot. And sometimes… Read more »
