Blog Tour and Giveaway: Feeling This by Casey Blue

~ Synopsis ~
Whoever said life is hard didn’t know the half of it!

Completely devastated when his life is ripped out from underneath him, Jordan Rhodes decides to take a break. A break from everything he’s always known; the country club life-style, his life-long friends and his overbearing parents. He just wants to be free to get lost and not feel the pain he has endured.

Kimber Maguire has been dealt the tough card her entire life. An ailing mom, a sister who refuses to face reality and a yearning for the one that got away, she finds putting one foot in front of the other as her only saving grace. What she really wants is to be free of feeling the pressure that is her life to get lost.

But when Jordan finds Kimber while losing himself, they both discover, sometimes you just need to feel to be found.
~ Our Review ~
3.5 Star Review by Heather 

This book just didn't do anything for me.  I was looking forward to reading it, but when I started it I had trouble getting into it. It took me forever  to finish it.  It just seemed slow and drawn out.
Kimber is trying to take care of her mother, working two jobs and going to college.  She can't walk away and leave her mom even though that is what she wants to do.  She doesn't have time to date guys with everything else she does. So when Jordan appears in town she is shocked to have such a reaction to him.  She is unsure if she should pursue a relationship with him or just stay away from him.  Can she open up her heart and trust someone to be there for her?
Jordan is desperately trying to get away from his life. After being devastated by his fiancé he runs away and finds solace in Mt. Vernon.  Here he learns his love for horses never went away.  He is working as a ranch hand and loves the hard work.  He then meets Kimber and feels that he shouldn't be looking at another woman so soon after everything that happened with his fiancé.  Will he open up his heart? Or will he end up breaking Kimber's heart?
This book had potential and I am sure there are a lot of people that love this book.  I just couldn't connect with it and/or the characters.  I just feel like the story was slow going and that things were unrealistic in the book.  I really feel bad that I didn't like the story.
