Blog Tour: Work Song by Danielle Allen

~ Synopsis ~

When society tries to put you in a box, knock the walls down. –Tati Green

“You have a pretty face” is such a back-handed compliment. It’s like telling me that my face is beautiful, but the rest of me is not.

Despite what society says, my curves are hot.
My love life, on the other hand, is not.

My mom says I’ll never find love because of my weight.
My sister says I’ll never find love because of my personality.
My almost-fiancé says I’ll never find love because I’m incapable of loving anyone.

My mom and sister are full of it, but my ex kind of has a point.

At twenty-seven years old, I’ve never been in love. I date a lot, yet sparks never fly. But when I experienced the heart-pounding, skin tingling feeling for the first time, I didn’t think it would be caused by a guy I’ve never met. And I damn sure didn't think he would end up holding my future in his hands in more ways than one.

This book was amazing!!  I always look forward to Danielle Allen books.  She has a way with words that draws you in and leaves you wanting more.  You will fall in love with Wes and even Tatiana.

I loved watching Tatiana grow as a person.   She didn't let people walk all over her, which I love.  She tried her hardest to make it in a man's world.  She wasn't going to let that stop her from going after her dream job.

Wes was a strong alpha male.  You will fall in love with him from the very first page.  He knows what he wants out of life.  He doesn't hesitate to go after it.  After his last break up he is looking for someone who wants similar things.  Can Tatiana give him what he needs?

I love this book and I'm excited to get a book on Amelia.  Danielle Allen is one of my go to authors.  She writes books that will inspire you to look around your life, make sure you are living it to the fullest and you are getting everything out of life that you want and need.  Love her books!!

I absolutely loved this book.  One of my favorite in the series!!  I love Richard and was happy to understand him a little better in this book.

This book follows along with Cameron's Contract.  You get to see Richard's POV though.  He really stood out and made me proud this book.  He learned a lot about himself and finally learned he can have love.  He just has to allow himself to open up and embrace it!!!

I really loved this series and am sad to say goodbye to all these characters!  This has been an amazing series.  One I won't soon forget!!  I fell in love with Richard, Mia and Cameron in Enthrall and have continued to love them through the whole series!!

~ Excerpt ~


Adrenaline spiking my veins. Just how I liked it. Wind whipping my clothes, this rush of air, the peacefulness of nothing. Thoughts dissipating. Gravity owning me as the ground drew near. Skydiving, the wind blasting my face, my body pummeled, death nipping at my heels and the arrogance of knowing I’d survive. Those painful thoughts returning and my inability to outrun them, or even outfall them, reminding me I’d messed up again. And lost my lover to another man. The same arrogance that had led me to pursuits like this. The same trust that made me believe giving my girlfriend to my best friend to train was a great idea. A stellar endeavor that was supposed to turn out a world-class submissive. After all, this brilliant dominant who I’d entrusted her to was renowned for his unique talent that turned our lovers into legends. He was also the same person who’d pulled me back from the brink time and time again, saving me in Dr. Cameron Cole’s own indelible way. His psychological craft so effective that those of us who endured his special brand of therapy survived it with a sense of having saved ourselves; a profound statement of his brilliance. Though genius was not without consequence. This morning I’d told Mia goodbye. Left her outside Cameron’s Malibu beach house knowing full well he loved her more than me, and he was fatefully waiting inside. No, it wasn’t that he loved her more…he loved her differently. The kind of passion I’d never seen in Cameron before, the kind that made him willing to give her up for me. Cameron and I shared an endearing “bromance” – a connection as strong as brothers. Cameron had counseled me back from the edge of madness, back when my life was all about my father’s betrayal and my fiancée’s suicide. I’d been there for Cameron, too, when his life had spiraled after his fiancée Zie had betrayed him and he’d called off their wedding. Together we’d gone on the ultimate bender at Chrysalis which had left subs in our wake, giddy and sated. Cameron, me and Shay – our club’s head of security – had drunk and fucked our way into mythic status. Cameron had always been such a private man. A good man. So, I threw myself onto my sword and gave him what he deserved: The love of his life – the woman who was meant to be mine. I’d lied to myself that Mia would come round and learn the ways of a high-class submissive and enjoy being subjugated as she bowed down to me as her master. She only responded to Cameron like that. Proof that her soul had bonded with his…that only one man could truly set her free. I’d had no choice but to shake my bad boy ways and do the right thing for once. Even if it meant my heart was going to be ripped out of my chest. Getting over her seemed impossible. The strike to my back sent me spinning. A flash of a face. Brendon, my skydiving partner, yelling…something about pulling my cord. Something about deploying my emergency line. He shot up and that white cloud of a parachute billowed behind him, sending him rising. Yeah, good point. My flesh crawling as I realized the danger. Fuck. Plummeting. Spinning. So close to blacking out. My hand tugging, slipping off and trying again, my breath stuttering to fill my lungs with the air it forgot it needed. The cord ignoring these frenzied attempts, palms sweaty, fingers numb as they fumbled. Unable to tell which way was up or down— Refusing to give up, forming my body into a D-arch to slow my rate. Fucking death in the mouth as the ground came up fast. A yank backwards and I flew upwards, my canopy cordial enough to respond to that final frantic tug and blasting open, slowing my descent. Silence surrounding me. The patchwork ground now a solid color of dark green and fenced off boundaries becoming smaller. With legs bent, my feet hit the dirt hard and I tumbled into a sprint until the parachute’s drag rescinded. I leaned forward, both palms resting on my knees as I sucked in adrenaline- drenched breaths. My grin widened. Standing tall I howled my joy.

My name is Evelyn.

I met Devon and instantly fell for him.

Weeks later he fell for my best friend.

Never one to make waves, I watched as they started a life together. I stood by as their family grew, was the maid of honor at their wedding and the godmother to their children. All the while, I was longing for him, watching as he became the perfect husband and father. I was never jealous. I wasn’t even angry that my best friend had the only person I wanted. I had simply resigned myself to living without his love, but still being a part of his life.

Then, one terrible day, my best friend died.

She died and we all struggled to live life without her. Slowly, as the pain eased, our eyes opened and Devon finally saw me.

This is a story about second chances and second choices.

This is the story of how my life changed in the absence of Olivia.

5 Stars 

I loved this book. I wasn't really sure what to expect from the synopsis.  All I can say is this book was AMAZING! My heart didn't know whether it was supposed to be breaking or happy.

This book will have your emotions up and you won't know what to feel.  You will love and hate all the characters.  They all have redeeming qualities, but at times you'll want to smack them all.

This book is easily one of my top reads this year!  I couldn't put it down and I was sad it was over. It's one of those books that you don't want to end.  You wish that it was a never ending book!!  I suggest you go out and read this book as soon as possible!!
