BLOG TOUR: Love, Lies & The D.A. by Rebecca Rohman REVIEW+SPOTLIGHT+GIVEAWAY

Love, Lies & the D.A.

Jada McLean is about to get married in nine days, when she walks in on her fiance in a little more than a compromising position. Days later, she’s on a trip that she intends to be relaxing and a prelude to her fresh start, when she runs into the rude, obnoxious, but gorgeous Jonathan Kole.
Jonathan Kole is San Francisco’s newest District Attorney. When he finds himself deeply attracted to a stunning beauty, he has no idea that she’s about to get into BIG trouble with the law—and he’ll be the one presiding over her trial. To make matters worse, his father is the lawyer representing her in the high-profile case.

When a series of events force them together over New Year’s weekend, Jonathan’s feelings and ethics will come into question, while Jada comes to terms with the fact that she is falling for the man that will be responsible for attempting to put her behind bars… Little do they know, they're both about to fall into a whirlwind so deep, it will send both their lives spiraling out of control. 

This book was given to me as an E-ARC
in exchange for an honest review. 

Jada is on her way home, picked up the wedding dress, finishing up last minute details of her wedding in just over a week when she walks in on her fiance' and ... well....

The wedding is off... let's just say that... 

Jada decides to take some "Me Time" 
and get her mind righted considering she is the owner of a major hotel chain... lol

Jada ends up in an unseen encounter with Jonathan Kole! 
Grey Eyes, very in charge and determined in everything he does... :)

Okay so this book isn't out yet, so I will 
 keep the spoilers out of it :) 

There are sections in this book that are so HIGH action followed immediately by periods of solace... 
But the intermission is definitely needed in there!! 

Murder, Scandals, Embezzlement, Corrupt Law Politicians, and a very amazingly relate-able cast in this book! 

I loved that nothing was as easy as it seemed even if everyone thought it was going to be... Normally with romance(and I have read a couple books that weren't easy peasy, but not very many) guy meets girl, instant attraction, girl falls for guy, guy is strangely in love *SHOCK*

Insert Hearts and flowers

This book went as far as to have me feeling like I was right there!!

OH! And Micky and Maggie!!  
**Tears approaching again*

I found it hard to put this book down to be able to do other things and then...... When it was finished....

With enough twists and turns and unforgettable heart wrenching moments and a surprise ending.!!!
 This book is NOT for fluffy romance lovers,  fluffy and super happy and only have minor hiccups along the way.... 

BUT... if you like a book that'll keep you on your toes all the way to the end with amazing character chemistry, mystery, and some seriously tear jerking moments, then you should pick this book up and dive right in as soon as you can!!

I give this book 5 out of 5 shields!!

Love, Lies & The D.A.

I worked on this book for the last year and the whole time, I could hear my mentor’s voice in my head.
“Telling not showing,” she’d say, or “I’m not convinced… not feeling it here.”
With this book I pushed myself, and tried to blow everything I knew I was guilty of with my first book (at least during the writing phase), out the park. My aim was to make the reader and my mentor, laugh and cry. I want readers to feel happy and sad, and at times I want them to feel angry—I want them to experience what the characters feel.
I've always had the most difficult time being funny in my writing and it was something I really strive to do in certain parts of this book. I think I've succeeded—it’s up to bookworms out there to decide . I’m silly, I laugh at my own jokes and depending on my husband to tell me if something was funny or not in a romance novel, was a complete waste of time.
He always gave the same blah response, “It’s cute.”
Not necessarily what you want to hear when attempting to write a funny scene.
The scenes where I wanted to evoke tears were the most difficult however. I had to get myself in “the zone”. That meant privacy, quiet, soft or no music, then I’d put myself in my characters shoes and I’d imagine how they’d feel.
In some instances, it was as simple as going back to a sad time in my life, but in others, I used my own fears— how I thought I would react in a given situation to write those scenes. I thought if I felt what the characters did; it would translate to the readers too. When I found myself bawling while my fingertips scrambled across the keyboard, I truly believed I would succeed in roping the reader in.
My aim was to keep readers engaged from page one all the way to the very end. Love, Lies & The D.A. will take people through a myriad of emotions—from lighthearted moments, to intense situations, from close encounters to steamy love scenes. Readers will laugh, and they will cry. I hope they thoroughly enjoy the heartwarming and sometimes heart-wrenching journey that Jada and Jonathan go through as they turn through the pages of my book.
