First a message from me to K. Pinson- OH MY GAWD WOMAN YOU ARE TRYING TO KILL ME AREN'T YOU? Daxton makes me happy in the pants too.
Ok. I feel better sort of .........not really. So, I'll share a not so secret secret with y'all. I LOVE DAX! Yep in my mind he is MINE! It's ok, because Ava and I have agreed to share him. We have this whole thing worked out in my mind. lol Seriously though are you ready for my review which is going to be hard since I HATE spoiling even a little bit for you. Well, here goes.
My review: 5 stars
This is a great book and I loved it. I was honored to be a beta reader for her and read the first few chapters. I instantly fell in love with Daxton and my obsession began. lol Out of this I also became friends with a wonderful person. K. Pinson did a wonderful job on her debut book and as she has learned from it I know that she will grow as a writer and all her future work will only get better. In Spades is a heart warming story. The characters come to life and grab hold of your heart. You can feel everything that Ava feels. Little Abby not only grabs your heart but she wraps you around her little finger. She is feisty and full of life and you just can't help but smile when she is around. Daxton is a hot, sexy, tattooed musician who also happens to be a music therapist who loves kids and is great with them. What isn't there to love about that.**swoon, fans self, back on track** Then there is Krissi Adams. What to say about her, well....first the character is inspired by Kris Adams. Yep, from the fun with Joe & Kris page. Her & K. Pinson worked together on this character. I am not sure I am going to like her character much but you will have to read the book to see what you think of her and why I say that. Now I will warn you there is a major heart breaking cliff hanger that will leave you wanting to track down K. Pinson and ask her what the heck she was thinking and why she would do such a thing to you. Don't worry K I got your back and I will protect you because I want the next book. So, go buy the book, read it, and see what you think. It really is a great book and I look forward to more from this wonderful author.
Where to buy:
Since I am so in love with Daxton I am going to leave you with a little visual from K. Pinson's author page from facebook and on the web. EYE CANDY!!! Just a few versions of what some have said remind them of Dax. I'll admit when I first read for her I thought of Joe Marvullo.
Now go read it and see what you think Dax looks like.
this is just my favorite quote I think it was made by @mollykaur for K. Pinson.
Where to find K. Pinson:
