Blog Tour: You Turn by Marion Croslydon with Review and Giveaway

Adult Contemporary Romance
Second Chances Series
Release: October 6, 2014

"I was the little girl who loved you from afar. I was the woman who gave herself away for you and ended up losing a lot of who she was."
"Then allow me to give back some of what I stole."
After being dumped by her fiancé, Eleanor Carrington flees to Paris to stay with her self-medicated mother. While keeping her mom from popping pills like gummy bears, Eleanor launches a new, no-strings-attached life plan with absolutely NO falling in love whatsoever. On her part at least, because her self-esteem could do with one or two Frenchmen going un peu crazy for her.
What she doesn’t need is for her first Grand Amour to burst back into her life. What she doesn’t need is all-American Zachary Murdoch—or a more mature and sensitive version of him—to schmooze his way into her heart again. She grew up loving the/this/that man until he dumped her five summers ago. Whatever shit-show/life drama she’s just been through was a stroll. What Zach put her though was a climb up Mount Everest. Barefoot. In a bikini.
Now a club-owner in Paris, Zach is intrigued by the troubled woman who was once the sweet girl he had to give up. Offering a shoulder for her to cry on is what he owes her. Loving her is what he lost the right to. Because there’s a reason he broke up with Lenor and that reason is why she’s in Paris.
But Paris is called the City of Love…
Will he be her turn at love?
*** You Turn is a contemporary adult romance and part of the Second Chances series. However, Lenor’s story can be read as a stand-alone novel. There is no cliffhanger. ***

My Thoughts:  After thoroughly enjoying the first two books in the Second Chances series by Marion Croslydon, I have been looking forward to reading Eleanor's story in You Turn.  I didn't like her at all in the other books, but I knew Croslydon had something special in store for her readers in regards to Eleanor and I couldn't wait for her to completely change my mind regarding Eleanor, a feat which she definitely accomplished, along with causing me to fall in love with Zach also.  The story is told from both Eleanor and Zach's point of view, and Croslydon does a wonderful job in providing her readers with so much more than the typical romance.  Exciting, heartbreaking, sexy, with some surprise twists and of course the sexy romance that all contemporary romance fans craves, You Turn is a gem and one contemporary romance fans will definitely want to check out.  I don't want to say too much more, because it is one of those reads that you don't want to spoil by giving too much away.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
