Blog tour for Winning Me Over by Amber Garza

It’s a typical boring night at work when I first meet the mysterious and sexy Colt Lancaster. Minutes after he leaves, I’m robbed at gunpoint by a masked man.
I suspect that the two events are related.
No matter how hard Colt tries to convince me that it was all just a coincidence, my gut tells me otherwise. However, the more I get to know him the more I want to believe him. Just when he’s about to win me over, a condemning secret from his past is exposed.
Then again, everyone deserves a second chance. Don’t they?

My review

Winning Me Over is one of the best love stories that I have read this year. Not only because it has a happy ending, but because it's not the typical jock or country love story. It's the love story of two people who are considered outcasts in their town. They go through ups and downs, but in the end they come out together, stronger, and happier.

Paige is just the girl you see working behind the counter at your local coffee shop. She colors her hair a different color every time she turns around and she accessorizes to the max. Life for her is normal, well except for the few family things that she's had to go through in the past, but for now her future is looking up. She lives each day to the fullest because the future is never a guarantee. When she goes through something she would equate to being the second scariest time in her life, she realizes that her beliefs are right.

Colt is new to town and he isn't looking for any friends or even to really make it home. He's had a hard life and knows that the instant you get happy, it can get ripped from you. Attaching yourself to someone or something is only going to make it harder on yourself when you have to go. But, when he passes the coffee shop in town and sees Paige, he finds that he wants to get to know her, even though it's against everything that he knows to be true.

Together Colt and Paige help each other change and grow. Paige helps Colt realize that it's okay to lay roots down because sometimes things work out in your favor. Even if it takes something tragic for it to come to be. Colt helps Paige realize that even though her family has to go through the same ordeal that they'd already been through, she doesn't have to be strong for everyone, it's okay to break down and allow yourself to be vulnerable.

Amber Garza does a brilliant job at showing the dynamics in this book between the characters. I loved it from beginning to end.
