Blog Tour Stop and Giveaway: Love, Exactly by Cassandra Giovanni

Emma Walker was a writer who'd lost herself to someone else's anger--who had given up on ever feeling like herself again.

Evan Levesque was a rock-god--the one all the woman wanted, but he'd never gotten used to the loneliness between the stage and real life.

With just one cup of coffee they'll begin a journey of self-discovery at each others sides, but can Emma handle Evan's fame while dealing with her own demons? Emma's checkered personal past, a bad relationship that haunts the edges of her memories, threatens to make everything implode on them when Evan takes matters into his own hands.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but your words...they'll destroy my soul--Can Emma handle being put back together and facing who she's become because of it? 

My Take
Love, Exactly is not your average rock star romance. It's a very sweet romance that is different than most famous/non-famous relationship type stories as it wasn't all about the drama, the paparazzi, or cheating. It was about two people, regardless of their status, connecting in the most beautiful way possible. It was rather refreshing to see such a realistic take on a relationship of this nature, and I quickly fell in love with Evan, and at times even forget that he was a famous, sexy rock star. Both characters were great and were exactly what the other one needed, and I just loved this story. 

You all know how I love my steam, but this book was not about that, and strangely, I really enjoyed  how everything unfolded. Cassandra Giovanni did an amazing job developing the relationship between Evan and Emma in a very natural, heartwarming way. Emma has some underlying issues that Evan amazingly handles as he pushes her to forget her past and to pursue her dreams. 

I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend this quick read to my friends. I loved the ending, but definitely would love to see more of where Evan and Emma are in the future.
