Found Blog Tour: Guest Post, Review and Giveaway

Welcome to the Found Blog Tour! Today I have not only a review but a small guest post by the amazing author Alyssa Rose Ivy and there is a tourwide giveaway!


Title: Found
Author: Alyssa Rose Ivy
Series: The Crescent Chronicles #3
Publication Date: July 16, 2013

Levi might be hot, strong, and have a cool set of wings, but it's not enough to make up for keeping Allie in the dark.
Allie's tired of being left with more questions than answers. She's tired of loving a guy who refuses to level with her. Most of all, she's tired of her life spinning out of control.
Desperate to save Jess no matter the personal cost, Allie has to face the possibility that the only one she can trust is herself.

 Alyssa Rose Ivy is a New Adult and Young Adult author
who loves to weave stories with romance and a southern setting. Although raised in the New York area, she fell in love with the South after moving to New Orleans for college. After years as a perpetual student, she turned back to her creative side and decided to write. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and two young children, and she can usually be found with a cup of coffee in her hand.

10 things you don't know about Allie from the Crescent Chronicles

 1)  She likes that Levi makes up different names for her.

 2) She's been in the best shape of her life since she started working out with Jared.

 3) She could live on strawberries.

 4) If her life actually settles down she really wants a pet (not a bird though).

 6) Her little black dress collection has been almost completely replaced with little red dresses since meeting Levi.

 7) Believe it or not she doesn't mind college dining hall food.

 I have been waiting to read Found since I finish Focus so the night I got my ARC, I decided I was only going to read one chapter because I had to get some sleep. 2 hours and half a book later, I realized I was not going to be getting much sleep, and I had to force myself to put it down for a few hours. The second I woke up the next morning I devoured the rest of the book before doing anything I was supposed to be doing. Yes, Found is just that addicting and that phenomenal. 

I always liked Allie and Levi’s story and that love has grown with each book, especially in Found. New complications arise, and Allie is stuck in a difficult situation. She is trying to find a way to gain some control over the situation and her life, but with every twist and turn, she loses more control than she gains. All Levi wants to do is protect her, but sometimes protecting someone you love does more harm than good. 

The reason I have always loved Allie is that she likes to remain independent, stubborn, and strong. This is harder when The Society is very male dominated, and like to keep their women submissive. Though Levi is not like that, certain traditions and characters reflect that viewpoint. Allie tries very hard to keep her independence, and that characteristic is what makes me root for her. If you loved Allie in the first two books, you are going to be over the moon with her in Found. She just keeps surprising me. 

Alyssa Rose Ivy is an author that I try to read everything she publishes, because she never ceases to amaze me every single time. She is and forever will be one of my favorite authors. If you have yet to read anything by Alyssa The Crescent Chronicles are a great place to start, but once you do you will never stop.
