Blog Tour – Life’s a Capella By Yessi Smith

I want to tell you how great my life was. How I lived without regrets. With constant laughter. Without any tears. I want to tell you how I lived each moment to the fullest. How each breath I took was fresh and full of life. With eagerness. Without any fear.
I want to tell you all of that, but then my story would be masked with lies and not worth telling.
My life didn’t start until I left my past. And I left everything. My mother, my friends, my name.
My new name, the name everyone knows me by is Erin Lewis.
Four years after finding the courage to leave her hometown in Alabama, Erin is finally happy with where her life has led her. Not only is she secure in her environment, but the relationships she has formed center her, making her forget how damaged she once was. Before she can fully settle into her new life, her past crashes into her present, unraveling a set of events that destroy the very foundation she has built her new life on.

About Yessi Smith

I’m a Hispanic living in South Florida with my redneck husband from Texas and our “half breed” son, who is actually the reason I started writing again after years of celibacy. My son loves stories, but not the kind you can read in an existing book. No, he’d rather make up a story, complete with our own illustrations. So, thank you, Son, for igniting a flame I had let go out.
I also live with two dogs: a neurotic Border Collie we call Nitro and a midget Rottweiler named Nisa.
I have always found my sanctuary at the beach and in music and writing. I wish I could write rhymes so I could become a famous rapper, but rhyming is completely lost on me.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and a Master’s in Human Resource Management. I have held several jobs, from picking up dog crap to upper management positions. And now I am hoping to leave the business world behind so I can live full time in a world that does not exist until I place my fingers on a keyboard and bring them to fruition.

Mira’s broken and battered. She’s fighting to put herself back together while her heart is trying to forget. Can she continue moving forward with one man while in love with another?

Skylar’s wrestling demons he never imagined in his wildest dreams. The girl he’s been in love with for years finally has feelings for him. There’s only one problem: her heart might lie somewhere else. How long until his will power shatters?

Who will seize Mira’s heart and never let go? Will these feelings ever go away or will they be an AWAKENING?

awakening teaser


I continue to giggle all the way down the hall and into the elevator. As soon as we hit the

elevator, the proximity of Skylar to my humming body really hits home and I feel a sudden wave of

arousal. I haven’t felt this way since I woke up, not even with Danny. Glancing over at Skylar, I can see

him fidgeting around.

As I’m looking at him, he turns to face me, and I can see the arousal in his eyes. He casually licks

his lips and shoves his hands into the pockets of his jeans. I smile and turn back to face the front of the

elevator. I have him right where I want him.

When the elevator descends to the first floor, I’m smacked in the face with the gravity of my

reality. Danny is waiting for the doors to open, with a huge smile on his face. Glancing back to Skylar, I

see that he’s been smacked just as hard. Skylar’s Adam’s apple bobs in his throat, like he’s trying to

swallow his feelings, and moves past me toward Danny.


My Review:

**Spoilers Present** Sorry 😦

Oh My!

Oh My, oh my, oh my!

Didn’t think I would fall even more in love with Skylar……I was wrong!

Ashley has done herself over AGAIN!

Another FAN-FRIGGING-TASTIC book in the “Destined” series.

I want to thank Ashley for providing me with an ARC copy of this book to read and review for this AWESOMNESS of a blog tour ❤

It certainly picks up where “Mirage” left us. Were shocked and saddened at this point!

Mira has woken from her Coma to find everything she has gone through in the last couple of months has been a lie, a parallel universe of some kind!

Skylar and her aren’t in love (oh so she thinks)

Danny is ALIVE!

So in this book its all about Mira recovering from the shock of a lifetime. Everything she new is kind of same just with different circumstances and a WHOLE different outcome.

I did feel for Danny, that he has lost the love of his life, but that didn’t mean he could go “Looking” else where whilst she was in the god-damn coma! Seriously and you say you love this woman! And if he LOVED her sooooo much then he would of put up a bigger fight for her! Don’t get me wrong sonny jim, I am utterly over the fricking moon the Mira gets her HEA but seriously, grow a pair and get your new woman 🙂 *Hint Hint*

I loved that Ashley factored in, the heavenly, devilishly handsome Walker brothers from Hilary Storms In A Heartbeat & Heaven Sent books 🙂 Yum Yum, deffo eye candy 🙂

I want to see Kylee get her HEA, hmmmm maybe this will be given to us if we ask nicely in “Facade”

I do know one thing, I can’t wait for THAT to be released!
