Blog tour + review: From Lies to Promises by Faith S. Lynn

Title: From Lies to Promises
Author: Faith S. Lynn
Genre: New Adult
My rating: 

With a past buried and left behind, Katrina changes her last name on a search for a normal life. But what is normal, really?
Three years, two amazing friends, and a new future, she thinks she has finally secured it. That was until Ryder. With him she was able to forget her fears completely, to feel more normal than she ever has.
But when her past comes crashing into her present, will he think her past is all lies, and abandon her like everyone else that she thought loved her did. Or will his promises bring her above the dark that surrounds her life.

I really enjoyed this book. It has a really tragic background plot but was also whitty and funny at times. That I love in a book! The book had some misspellings but since I got an ARC the editing was probably not finished so I will certainly let that one slide :)
When we first meet Kat she makes me really intrigued as to her story. Something really bad happened in her past and she is trying really hard to move past it by moving to a new city and meeting new friends. So far, so good. Then she meets Ryder... He makes her feel normal again. Her walls come crashing down that she has built for so long. He sees the real her even though he has no clue as to what happened in her past.

Kat is such a strong charachter. Despite all tragedies in her past she´s still standing tall. Of course with a lot of help from her new best friends.
Ryder is mouthwatering lol! Both he and Kat has such big hearts and are both lovely persons. I love that they found each other to make the other an even better person. They just complete each other!
I can really recommend this book! 

Excerpt #1:

“That’s what I am doing now, is getting to know you. Should I not want to be a part of your life? Are you a serial killer or something?” He jokes. “Ah, she does smile.”

I don’t even know that I am smiling until he says something, which only causes me to smile bigger. “What are you talking about, I smile all the time.”

“Yea, but that one was real.” He doesn’t say anything more, just starts digging into his food. I don’t press him on what he means because I know. The question is, how does he?

Excerpt #2:

Before Ryder has a chance to react, I take his face in my hands and pull him down for a kiss. For a second he is still, then he kisses me back. This kiss isn’t like the first one, there is no holding back for either of us. I am giving myself over to be hurt, I know this. What’s the saying? Go big or go home. That’s what I intend to do. I ease my hands away from his face and around his neck. His elbow still supporting his weight, his other hand has made it to my hip. He grips it and pulls me closer to him, our bodies lined together perfectly. When his teeth graze my bottom lip in a soft nip, I can’t contain the moan that leaves me. Hearing it, Ryder deepens the kiss.

We come back to reality when the movie starts. Ryder pulls back, my body begging for more, and he has that damned grin on his face. “That makes me very happy.” I smile on the inside, I want to make him happy. To be the reason that smile takes residence on his handsome face.

I am a New Adult author. From Lies to Promises is my debut novel! I am wife to the best husband of the freaking universe and mother to 3 majorly awesome kids! Reading, Xbox, cooking and WINE just barely scrape the surface of who I am. Everyone who knows me will say I am a nerd... and I would agree. Want to know a secret? I am a super hero. True story!

I have an obsession with anything people consider odd and I think learning is the bees knees. I have an Associates degree in Business Management and was an accountant for 7 years. I know, boooring! But I like having a problem and seeing a solution.

Maybe, just maybe, this is why I enjoy writing so much!
