Blog Tour Review & Giveaway: Catch Me by Claire Contreras

Title: Catch Me
Author: Claire Contreras
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance.
Release Date: November 17th, 2013
In the past, I've always been given everything I've wanted, but nothing that I truly needed. I've experienced a lot of things in my twenty-five years, everything except the one thing I want. It's the one thing that can’t be bought. It can't even be taken, it has to be given. And nobody has ever given it to me, not really anyway. 

Not until him.

Music is the center of both our lives, but as he found his place in it, I lost my way. He soared, while I spiraled down a destructive path.
I lost myself in more ways than I can count.

The ironic thing is that I didn’t realize how lost I was until he found me. 

And now that he has, I have to wonder if he'll stay around long enough to catch me.

Appearances can be very deceiving. If we took them at face value, it would seem Brooklyn has a perfect life. A glamorous life as the daughter of a former model and music mogel. Money and freedom to buy and do whatever she wants. Brooklyn, at the young age of only 16, was basically living the life of a rockstar. Parties, drugs, alcohol. She had the world at her fingertips.

Or so it seems....

But if you look deeper, you will see the sadness that surrounds her. The hell she has been living but buried under all the shiny wrappings of her privileged life. Only those closest to her know how her father is too busy to notice her and her mother tears her down every chance she gets. And when tragedy strikes Brooklyn's life, she spirals even further out of control into an abyss of darkness.

My heart broke for Brooklyn so many times throughout this book. It was very clear from the beginning, all she wanted was the love of her parents. It is the main root of so many of her issues. Her mother especially was disgusting.The way she treated Brooklyn and things she encouraged her to do for the sake of appearances, was just cringe worthy. A parents love, ESPECIALLY a mother's, should be unconditional 

But then she meets someone when she least expects it. And he is not only supportive but also is genuinely interested in her. Their growing relationship was both sweet and hot! It was definitely just what Brooklyn needed to face the past and be able to final move on to a happier place. But just when things are looking up for Brooklyn in all aspects of her life, things come crashing back down. 

Can she pull herself up and dust off things this time or will she slip back into her old ways? Well, you are going to have read Catch Me to find out. This is a book that will take you on a roller coaster of emotional ups and downs. But every moment is worth it to get to the end. And best of all.....this book is a stand alone, which means NO cliffhanger!! 
Claire Contreras graduated with her BA in Psychology from Florida International University. She lives in Miami, Florida with her husband, two little boys, and three dogs.

Her favorite past times are: daydreaming, writing, and reading.

She has been described as a random, sarcastic, crazy girl with no filter.

Life is short, and it’s more bitter than sweet, so she tries to smile as often as her face allows. She enjoys stories with happy endings, because life is full of way too many unhappy ones or ones that will scare the daylights out of her and have her looking over her shoulder at every turn. Like I said, she's very random.
