Blog Tour Amy Gregory Gabby Revealed

Title:  Gabby Revealed (Finding Perfect #2)
Author:  Amy Gregory
Genre:  Contemporary Romance
Publication Date:  March 25, 2014
Event organized byLiterati Author Services, Inc.


Gabby James didn’t have the idyllic childhood many in her little hometown of Renlend, Kansas had. High school was a living hell, but when she graduated she couldn’t bring herself to leave Renlend. The town was her prison, but her family’s bookstore, The Looking Glass, was her one true love. It was the place she could run to, and escape the prying eyes of the ones who taunted her.

Shane Compton was a literary agent in one of the most prestigious publishing houses in New York City. He found no greater rush than finding the next big talent, someone who could take the written word and turn it into an art form. In the span of one rude phone call Shane was drawn into the mystery of just who the fiery new author from Kansas was. When everyone else in the office refused to deal with her, Shane willingly accepted the challenge. There was no logic to the madness, but every time he had contact with her, she drove him wild.

Gabby tried every trick in the book to keep Shane at arm’s length, but he had made good on his promise to come to Kansas. He wanted to pull her out of anonymity, he wanted her in the public eye. Now here he stood, on the sidewalk in front her bookstore, and one look told her he was everything she was afraid he’d be. Too bad she was anything but who he thought she was.

Gabby quickly discovers Shane has more on his mind than just books and with a little help from an ornery matchmaker, he shows her a whole new life through her looking glass.

4 Stars!

I knew I would love Gabby's story! When I was first introduced to Gabby in Mike's Way Back I knew I would love her character. She is a spitfire! The circumstances that made her that way are really upsetting, but I think she managed to turn around and be exactly who she needed to be. Gabby had a terrible childhood. You know those girls who run over anybody they think is less than them? Yeah, she had to deal with that. So she had to protect herself, so when she wrote a book she used a pen name. Which quickly became something so much more than she expected!

Now enter in Shane Compton. He had only talked to her on the phone and she was always short and rude, but he still found her intriguing. So he takes off to Kansas to meet her face to face and try to get her to come out to the public about who she was. And guess what happens next? They have amazing chemistry together! But Gabby fights it, she doesn't want to trust him because she wouldn't survive the aftermath when he left.

Shane gets to witness first hand how her parents are with the girls who are still treating her with disrespect. They want to brush it off and pretend nothing was wrong. Gabby cares for her neighbor whose health seems to be failing more and more. Shane sees the connection and talks with him about Gabby. He tells Shane that it's Gabby story to tell, but then he goes and plays match maker. Just love how he puts them together :) Gabby still pushes him away, but Shane has determination and decides he wants to try to make things work. So he makes plans to move to Kansas. This is where things get interesting. I don't want to ruin the story so take my word and go grab this book!!

Amy's writing is brilliant, but the reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is sometimes it was hard to distinguish who was speaking. It would start a paragraph with one person speaking and then change up to somebody else and I would have to re-read it to make sure who was speaking.

About the Author
When asked ‘when do you have time to write’, Amy Gregory simply laughs.  The real answer is, “in bits and pieces”.  She and her husband live in Kansas City with their three fantastic kids that keep them running in three very different directions.  Because she sits so much, she always carries a notebook with her at all times.
She has an off the wall, snarky, off the cuff sense of humor that often shocks even those who’ve known her for years.  And she loves that her children have all been blessed that ability to make others laugh as well.  At least she’s grateful most of the time!  Her husband often teases her about how she “makes this stuff up” when he’s reading a piece of her work. … The answer—“it just comes to me when I’m typing”. Scary thought, huh!
