*Release Day Blitz* THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY by M.B Feeney!

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Content Warning: Sexual situations and bad language.
Cover designer: Grafix Momma ~ Editor: Sydney Kalnay & R. E. Hargrave
There’s something about that one person we date in our teens but never become intimate with. Why does a sexless relationship render us unable to stop carrying that person, the what if, with us into our adult life?
For Heidi Johnson, Shane Hughes is her “one that got away.” Through the years, he has stayed in the back of her mind while she became an adult, a mother, and her own person. Meanwhile, Shane has lived a life of regret that he let Heidi go for the wrong reasons: fear and a misguided sense of not wanting to hurt either of them. When they reconnect online, the memories they've tried to suppress over the years return, reigniting the feelings never explored ‘back in the day.’ Will a school reunion in their home town of London, surrounded by old school friends, help the pair address the questions the years apart left unanswered? Or will they still be left with wanting more?
For almost half an hour I sat at an abandoned table by the wall, smoking my cigarettes one after the other. Apart from a few voices filtering out through the open doors, I sat in complete silence. Not one other person came out, but I could hear voices. It seemed most of the smokers were outside the front, leaving me to feel like I was the only smoker in the building.
Leaning back against the wall, I let the soft breeze play over my flushed face and was savouring a bit of peace and quiet when I looked at my watch and jumped. I hadn’t realised that it was so late—time certainly does fly when you’re having fun. Which I had been having, before the need to escape into the dark overtook me. Crushing out my cigarette in the huge metal ashtray, I stood to go back inside. I stalled when I caught sight of Shane making his way through the crowded downstairs room of the pub, walking in the direction of the beer garden. Towards me. Crumpling back down onto the seat, I lit another cigarette, my hand shaking from nerves, and . . . something else. It was okay sitting close to him in a crowded room surrounded by people, but the garden was deserted and dark. He spotted me pretty quick thanks to the glowing orange tip of my lit cigarette.
“Nice spot.” He pointed to the overhanging branches of ivy that partially hid the table. Without speaking further, he sat down next to me and took my face between his warm, strong hands. All I could see were his beautiful eyes locking on me—right before his lips crashed into mine.

Currently at university studying for her BA (Hons) in primary teaching, she procrastinates on her assignments by listening to music of all genres and trying to get ‘just one more paragraph’ written on whichever WIP is open. She is also a serious doodler and chocoholic. Writing has been her one true love ever since she could spell, and publishing is the final culmination of her hard work and ambition.
Her publishing career began with two novellas, and she currently has multiple projects under way whilst Honour, a compilation of her own military based shorts, was released in November 2013. Always having something on the go can often lead to block which eventually gets dissolved by good music and an even better book. Her main reason for writing is to not only give her readers enjoyment, but also to create a story and characters that stay with readers long after the book is finished, and possibly make someone stop and think “what if...”

Welcome To My Stop On The LOYALTY AND LIES Blog Tour

Author: L.A Cotton
Publication Date: 30th January 2015
Source: eARC provided by author for blog tour

"Eighteen-year-old Savanah Parry just moved three thousand miles across state to escape. The memories…the whispers…the pain. 

Chastity Falls Academy is supposed to be her fresh start; her salvation. And when Ana meets mysterious Jackson, she begins to think it is. She hasn’t smiled in almost sixteen months; not since the night her life changed forever, and despite her guilt…her loyalty, Ana can’t deny that Jackson is breathing life back into her. With Jackson by her side, Ana wants to believe she can heal and move on. But she isn’t the only one living a lie, and the small private Academy has secrets of its own. All is not what it seems, and Ana is about to find herself in a tangled web of lies; fighting for survival, again. 

Loyalties will be tested, lies will be told. Welcome to Chastity Falls."

*I Hereby Award This Book 5 Wings!*

When I was asked to participate in this blog tour, I jumped at the chance. I have to be honest, I was so consumed with this book that I would lose chunks of time. It sucked me in from the first word and left me on tenterhooks waiting for the next book, I needed it right there and then. Ana was such an easy character to love and don't even get me started on Jackson *swoon* The two come from complete opposite backgrounds and it's very true what they say about opposites attract. They make the perfect couple. Nothing goes right for them but they are such a strong couple that they battle anything life throw at them. Ana doesn't realise just how strong she is and it endeared her to me even more. 
The way this book flowed was truly brilliant. It was fast paced and a true page turner, I could barely put it down. When I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about it. I cannot wait for the second book now and I truly hope that it is as stunning as this one. This is the first book of Lianne's that I have read, but it certainly won't be the last. Why? Because she is a very clever author. She leaves you guessing and begging for more. I love how this book wasn't predictable, it had twists and turns that you didn't see coming. 
I love reading because it takes me to a different world and the world that Lianne has created is one I could gladly live in forever. If you want a book to fall in love with, I strongly suggest you read Loyalty and Lies. 
Thank you Lianne for the ARC. Congratulations on an amazing novel. I can't wait for the next part of Ana and Jackson's journey.
