Our Moon by Jennifer L. Allen ~ BLOG TOUR & REVIEW


Title: Our Moon
Author: Jennifer L. Allen
Genre: Contemporary Romance



Ally Monroe can’t remember her name, let alone the eighteen years of her life before a car accident put her in a year-long coma. She wakes up to the reality that her parents are dead and she has amnesia.

Released from her long-term care facility to live with her twin brother, Alex, and older brother, Trevor, Ally tries to piece together what she can while attempting to live her life again. Enter Chase Baker, guitarist for her brothers’ rock band, JACT. There is something about him that Ally just can’t resist, but the mysteries of her past are looming in the back of her mind, threatening to destroy anything she tries to build with him.

Do Ally and Chase have a chance? Or is there a secret in Ally’s past that may get in the way?




“These smell delicious,” he says as he sets the cookies down on the folding tray table I pulled out from the rack beside the entertainment center.

“Thanks, I came up with the recipe myself,” I tell him. “Well, I picked apart a few different recipes to form this one recipe.”

“So this is a Frankenstein cookie?” he asks as he lifts one to his mouth. That mouth…Full lips concealing perfectly white teeth. Sigh.

“Ha ha. If you’re too afraid to try my concoction, you don’t have to,” I tease. Am I flirting with him? Stop it, Ally!

Chase grins, letting me know he was only teasing, and shoves the entire cookie in his mouth.

“Oh my gosh, that’s so gross,” I laugh.

He smiles as he chews. Then he closes his eyes and groans. And my heart. Just. Stops.

“This is so good, Ally,” he moans through his chewing.

My mind is completely in the gutter now as I stare at him, completely unabashed. I’m sure if his eyes were open, instead of closed in cookie ecstasy, he would see the pure hunger I have for him, not the cookies, in my eyes as I sit here and imagine the various other situations where I would love to hear him say those words.

I try to shake it off but not before he opens his eyes and catches me staring at him. When his eyes widen, I know he sees what I was hoping he wouldn’t. I catch a similar look in his eyes before I turn my head away and shove a cookie in my own mouth.

Not my best move, that’s for sure, especially when I start choking on a crumb. I quickly swallow down the cookie in my mouth with a chug of milk and proceed to try and cough out the crumb.

Chase pats my back. “You okay?” he asks, concern etching his voice.

I nod as I take another sip of milk. “Wrong pipe,” I rasp out.

Out of the corner of my eye, I swear I see a small grin on his face. I’m so embarrassed. If I thought it was embarrassing having Chase witness my anxiety attack, this is so much worse. First, he catches me looking like I want to eat him. Then, he watches me stuff a whole cookie into my mouth and proceed to choke on it. This is just great. Why can’t I just be normal?

Review by: AMY E 

Our Moon was an original storyline that grabbed hold of me on page one and never let me go.  My emotions were all over the place and tears were shed as Ally struggled to remember her past and face an unknown future. Very well written story of love, loss, and everything in between.

Review by: FIDAH

Our Moon is a young adult contemporary romance following Ally who has amnesia after waking up from a year-long coma. The story is written and divided into two parts from two different perspectives. The first part follows Ally as she deals with her amnesia, and how it affects the people around her especially her family. It also shows Ally having to struggle with memory loss and endless of questions. 

Ally is a very likeable and strong character. I liked how she dealt with her situation. She was persistent and curious about her life before the accident. I liked how she tried to communicate with the people around her. There were times when she broke down, and I enjoyed seeing these various sides to her. She was refreshing.

The second part follows the perspective of Chase before the accident happened. I'm not going to delve into too much details here since it'll be spoiling you. But I did have some difficulties getting into the later part because I really liked Ally and having that switch was a little hard to adapt. However, I did enjoy the different perspective as I got to know Chase a little bit more. He is a very understand and sweet guy. He was always supportive of Ally since he first appeared in the novel. 

This story had a set of great characters with fun dialogues. It was written really well and I enjoyed reading about them. Despite that, there were some issues with the story. I had a lot of questions especially during the years that weren't written around the last part of the story. Because of that, the last chapter seemed to end in a rush. It was expected and predictable, but I wasn't prepared for it. 

In a whole, this was a well written story with depth. I enjoyed it and would recommend this book for anyone looking for a sweet romance.
3.5 Stars




I live in South Carolina with my husband and our fur-kids. By day I’m an office manager, and by night I am a student, starting my final semester towards my BA in Psychology. I’ll be starting grad school in the fall. When I’m not at work or taking classes, I am either reading or writing. Books have always been a passion! I also enjoy spending time with my family, traveling to new places, and music.

My Reading and Writing History
I started reading when I was young, I loved Golden Books, especially the mini-ones you’d get in a kid’s meal! As a preteen I read lots of R.L. Stine, and even some Stephen King! I hated the assigned readings in school because I didn’t like being told what to read, so I never read those.  As a young adult, I found interest in James Patterson – I love his crime dramas! I took a break from reading for fun for a bit when I decided to get my college degree and had to read loads of text books. But it was all over once I read Hopeless by Colleen Hoover, as recommended by my sister. New Adult/Contemporary Romance is my genre of choice, to read and to write. I probably average reading a book or more a day. It’s a great addiction.

I’ve always enjoyed writing to an extent. I always liked to journal and blog. Since I’ve been reading new adult romance novels, I have been having ideas for what might be a great story line for a book. I fought with myself for a long time before finally starting my first book. I have no idea where it’s going to lead me, but you’ll never know unless you try.
