The Perception by Adriana Locke ~ BLOG TOUR & REVIEW

Title: The Perception
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 1st


There is no greater burden than a secret, and Kari Stanley has been carrying one alone for a long time. But fate intervenes in the form of a broken down car and the kind offer of assistance from a handsome stranger with a sweet, southern drawl. In exchange, all she has to do is go to dinner with him. Temptation was never so sweet.

Max Quinn has secrets of his own. His good deeds aren't just a product of his southern upbringing; they're his atonement. As one dinner turns into two, he realizes that Kari just might be his salvation.

As they struggle to find their path together, their secrets weigh heavier on them. Will they be able to trust one another with the truth, or will their secrets keep them apart forever?

Review by: Kim 

Wow! Max Quinn is definitely BBF material. He's sweet, kind, loyal, thoughtful, sensitive and sexy. (I really want one).

Max knows what he wants and he wants Kari. For the long haul that life is. But Kari is proving to be a challenge.
He isn't going to give up though, Kari is his and he'll do whatever he has too to convince her that she belongs with him.
Kari has a heartbreaking secret. One that even her sister, the closest person to her, doesn't know. It's life-changing and completely devastating.
Kari knows what Max wants from her and deep down she'd love nothing else than to give in to the sexy southern man who keeps trying to claim her heart. Only Kari feels like there's no way she can be what Max really needs in his life. She's broken and he deserves more.
But there's more at work keeping the couple apart than Kari's past.
There's a shadow stalking Max and Kari working to keep them apart.
Adriana Locke weaves a story of a couple who only wants to be together and works to find a way to make that happen.

My office was bright and I wasn’t in the mood. I rolled my blinds down and sat in my chair. I checked my email before anything else.
I couldn’t help the grin on my face as I clicked the top message.

Subject: Red
Since I know you check this first thing because you’re OCD, I wanted to start your day off by telling you that I’m wearing something red today. And it isn’t my shoes, although I could add my red heels to the mix later. ;)

It wasn’t the first time she had emailed me in the morning and I loved it when she did. I clicked the arrow.

Subject: Blue
Since you just planted vivid images in my mind, I want you to know that because of your email, I’m starting the day off with something blue and it isn’t my shirt. Your skills will be required to rectify this situation this evening. Stay at my house tonight?

A few minutes went by before I heard the ping.
Subject: Pink
Only if rectifying your blue requires the use of some of my pink.

I hit REPLY.

Subject: Purple
Keep it up, sweetheart, and you’re going to be fucked so hard you’ll be purple tomorrow. This is not a request—be at my house after work.
