Blog Tour: Ash To Steele - Karen-Anne Stewart + GIVEAWAY

Who I am and all I believe is marred with just one glance into angry, steel blue eyes. He seems to control my air, my ability to breathe. He makes me crave everything I know is a sin. Pure becomes tainted and lines are blurred. It's my fault; I'm the one who isn't strong enough. I've been damaged...broken. Breck's words haunt me...
'There's a consequence for every choice you make.' 

I've had so many women I can't even remember over half of their names, but none of them are mine; I make damn sure of that. I take what I desire and never look back. I don't need or want anyone, ever...not until I met Emma. Those eyes bore into what's left of my soul and her touch sears me, weakens me. I want to hate her for that. She is my ruin...my sweetest hell.

Disclaimer: Intended for readers 18+ due to strong language, mature scenes, and some violence.

My opinion.
I have to find more original ways to say how much I loved reading something when it's a Karen-Anne Stewart novel. Ash to Steele is just brilliant. It's so intense, so romantic. Just... W-O-W.
Emma is a wonderful main character. She's an honest, kind, caring girl with big dreams who ended up in a city that could make those dreams come true... but a city that could also destroy everything for which she stands for. On which side of this will Breck be?
Breck is thé guy every father warns his daughter about, and the exact same guy every girl falls for - against better judgment. He's gorgeous, he's sexy, he's a very smooth talker... and who'd guessed, he has a sweet and soft side as well! From muscles to tattoos and motorcycles, Breck is the epitome of a bad boy.
But oh my gosh he is s.e.x.y! I'm not usually a big fan of portraits as book covers, but this guy... Well, let's just say it's a good thing I read an e-copy of Ash to Steele or I wouldn't have made it past the cover!
Ok. Back to the book. I loved how Emma is a strong, independent woman. Breck is very protective and almost controlling, but she keeps her ground and refuses to let him dictate her - I admired the same thing in Raina and Kas (The Rain Trilogy). 
From the very first chapter you can feel how this will be one of those epic (love) stories. You're swept away and you're unable to stop reading. You can't help but fall in love. Both the book and Breck and Emma's love is so incredible intense - it will leave you breathless. And in tears.
Karen-Anne did it again!
Ash to Steele is a brilliant novel I will definitely read again... and again.

Karen-Anne Stewart is a new author and has only recently discovered that she is now addicted to writing. Her first novel, Saving Rain, was originally going to be a single novel, but it quickly turned into a trilogy. She fell in love with the characters and had to continue the story. Saving Rain is a new adult contemporary romance meant for readers 18 and older. 

She lives in the mountains with her family. She loves to read, hike, and travel when she is not writing. She is a sucker for romance, especially a book with a strong alpha male who has a sensitive side. She also enjoys a good mystery and thrillers. 

Her favorite author is James Patterson; he is an amazing writer. 

With being a newbie, she is just learning all the ropes, but is loving the wild ride. She plans to 
write for as long as her fingers have dexterity.
