Blog Tour, Giveaway & Review: Travis by Nicole Edwards

Travis (Alluring Indulgence #3)
Nicole Edwards
Release Date: July 30th

Travis Walker, the oldest of the seven Walker brothers, has been referred to as moody and mysterious, and for the most part, he would agree. Until recently, he spent his days helping his brothers run the family business. Now, he dedicates his time and energy to building a resort, Alluring Indulgence, that caters to fetishes and fantasies. And despite his attempt to work himself into the ground, Travis has never denied – at least not to himself – that something is missing. 

Ten years ago, Travis made the hardest decision of his life, breaking his own heart in the process. A decade later, he is learning that life has a strange way of turning things upside down before placing the pieces exactly where they were meant to go?

Cover - 4 Stars (love the little hint)
Ending - HEA
Genre - Erotic 

Damn Nicole Edwards KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK again!! Here writing continues to amaze me every time I pick up a new book from her. You think to yourself that there is NO WAY she can top her last book and then she comes and blows it out of the water with her 3 dimensional characters and story that grips you hard and doesn't let even after you have read the last page. Nicole's books are very erotic and have elements that some people may consider taboo but they have so much HEART in them that they stand apart from other erotic books.

Travis is the oldest of the Walker Boys and has been caring around the fact that he is a little 'different' from other people and it is eating away at him on the inside. He doesn't think that anyone will accept the 'real' Travis so he buries it which puts up big walls around his heart and makes him look hard on the outside. He is very private, brooding and dominate which is so freakin sexy it makes you want to strip down and let him do anything he wants to 

In the previous books of the series Travis is little mysterious and secretive. You get a feel that their is so much more to him hidden under that hard, tough outer shell and you want to peal back the layers and find it. In this book we get to see the real Travis and why he hides behind his tough mysterious cowboy image. We get to see why he is like he is and the emotional, passionate journey he goes on to become the man he wants to be with the HEA he deserves.

Like I said this book is erotic with some of the HOTTEST, SEXIEST scenes I have ever read in a book but it is also so much more than that. Nicole hooks you, drawls you in, pulls your heartstrings and then leaves you a shaky, emotional, dripping wet, turned on mess and I absolutely could not get enough!!

About Nicole 
About me... hmmm...

Ok, I've been asked to provide a little bit of "real" information about myself. That's harder to do than you think it is, especially for someone who has difficulty talking about themselves. ;) But, here goes...

I've been writing for as long as I can remember. Ever since I was a kid, I loved creative writing and as I got older, I got acquainted with those voices in my head and that led to putting my stories on paper. And now, here I am all these years later, spending my days doing what I love most. I decided to give myself over to writing full time in 2012 and I haven't looked back. I spent nearly 13 years in the corporate world and I have to say, this is a bit of a change (just a little) and I am loving every second of it.

I live in Texas with my husband and three amazing kids and our two beloved dogs. If I'm not writing, I'm usually reading. I devour everything I can get my hands on. I love romance of any type and being an Indie author myself, I'm always looking for new Indies to support. I haven't always been into reading, but about eleven years ago, I picked up a book - I'm pretty sure it was by Nora Roberts - and from there, I haven't stopped. Before I began writing full time, and my characters started taking up so much of my time, I was reading about 200 books a year. That has dwindled somewhat, but there isn't a day that goes by that I don't read. 

An interesting fact... I don't watch television - aside from the occasional news anyway. I will go see a movie or two rarely, but for the most part, I get all of my entertainment from a book. Some of my favorite authors include J.R. Ward, Suzanne Brockmann, Lora Leigh, Jane Rylon, Lori Foster, and Jaci Burton just to name a few.

  3. T have to agree every book I read is better then the last she is a brilliant writer and continues to blow me away Thank you for being part of the Travis tour I love to see what others think of the books I love Thank ypu Nicole for the great giveaway <3

  4. I don't remember how I ran onto Nicole's first book, but once I did, I was hooked. By the time I had discovered her, she had 3 or 4 out in her Club Destiny series and I didn't read anyone else until I had read all thing Nicole Edwards! I've been a devoted fan since that time. Every book is great. They are ones I reread. They are hard to put down and I'm always sad when they end. TRAVIS has been her longest one to-date, however, it didn't feel that way. I could have kept reading until her next one came out! :) Okay, Yes, to be fair, I do have other authors I enjoy as well, but Nicole's book's have a life of their own that I miss when I'm at the end of the last book. Thank goodness I can get my fix with her awesome Nicole Nation group. I love being there, sharing all things Nicole!

    1. I totally agree!! And Nicole is so cool she even comes and hangs out with us sometimes :)
