Blog Tour: Avowed by Alicia Taylor & Natalie Townson @authorntownson @taylorville86

Blog Tour

Three years ago I vowed revenge. Now I'm married with secrets, desperate to get past them.

I set out to destroy the man I thought ruined my life. I never saw it coming when he turned out to be the love I couldn't live without.

Damon was my target, now I'm determined to keep him.

Will he be able to get past my confessions, and forgive my actions? Will I be able to forgive his? We've come too far to lose it all now. It's time to fight for us, fight for our happiness.

Not every story is as it seems but it's time to avow our sins.

Both of us.

Review by Nadia Chief Obsessive Pimpette

'"I know who you are, Ella," Damon says before leaning forward to bring his lips to my ear. "I knew your sister."
My world stops.'

The final in a three book series this gripping end installment begins where the previous one left us hanging...has the player been played? Ella is pregnant and now married to a man who she has dedicated years of her life to so that she could crush him. She planned to destroy him totally as she believed he had done to her sister Lydia leaving her all alone. Her life has been centred on vengeance and she strongly believed in the sentiment of an eye for eye. And yet on her wedding day she learns he was aware all along and her reality is once more blown apart as everything she thought she knew is actually a lie.

The revelations keep coming thick and fast for the couple but together they are strong in their love although they both carry the weight of their guilt and their sins are not so easy to wash away. They struggle to come to terms with their secrets and lies but find solace in their love for one another, their passion soothing the demons in their souls. Damon feels he has so many sins to atone for and he wants nothing more than a chance to prove to Ella his love and provide everything she may need to help them move forward together. He battles her reservations and her cloak guilt to prove their love can withstand the storm of their pasts that are so intricately woven together.

And yet the puppeteer has not yet done with the final scene and continues the cat and mouse game that has been played in the shadows all along. Can Damon and Ella put the pieces of the puzzle together quickly enough to see the bigger picture? Will the final revelations be too much? Can they outwit the master game player? Will their new found love be given a chance to bloom? Oh so many questions!

"A diary corrupted me, and warped my mind, but we avowed our sins. We put them to rest and embraced our future. Revenge may have brought us together, but love gave us freedom."

A four and a half star earth shattering mind is still whirring to catch up!

Review by Emma Mistress of All Dark & Twisted

Avowed is book 3 in The Manipulation trilogy by Alicia Taylor and Natalie Townend is one hell of an emotionally charged, hot and steamy, page gripping roller coaster of a ride!! It picks straight up from where Corrupted dramatically ended with the words "I know who you are, Ella" whispered by Damon into her ear after their wedding....

For Ella, she's spent weeks dealing with inner turmoil about revealing who she really is to Damon now she realises she genuinely loves him and doesn't want to carry out her previously twisted plans for revenge for Lydia's death and how she planned to achieve her goal; but now Damon knew all along... But how much did he know? How did he know and why didn't he say something sooner??

As they begin to peel back the years of lies and deceit, struggling with demons and ghosts of the pasts on both sides, they see their truly stronger together than apart. But peace and harmony never lasts for long with this couple and one of their pasts returns with a vengeance... When you've nothing left to loose a person can be driven to extreme measures and the couple's enemy is warped, corrupted and possessed by blind madness. A truly terrifying force to be up against.

Will Damon and Ella survive this time when their truths are Avowed as a relationship started on fragile beginnings of secrets and lies can be broken easily when the truth is confessed.... Will the truth set them free or bring about their demise?
The games by Ella have stopped but someone else seems to still be playing with her and Damon, is it just one person or are other players joining in this time and what is their objective are themes to keep you hooked to the very last page of this book.

This book kept me captivated and gripped as wave after wave of emotions cascaded upon me: joy, frustration, shock, horror and awe. This is a fitting title for the final book in this series as so many truths are told which leads to forgiveness, damnation and understanding for many characters within these pages. Some deceits can never be forgiven, but will Ella and Damon's be ones they can move on from or not? Read this now to see how everything concludes in the last of the series...

Author Bio

I've spent many years crafting stories in my brain. Finally, after the encouragement from those that love and support me the most, I put my first story out by self-publishing in 2013.

That first milestone created a writing monster in me that couldn't be stopped and filled a void I cannot explain. Each story is a true gift from my heart and a sacrifice from my soul, since I find it difficult to let the characters go.

At home in Texas, my husband and I share our life with children that mean the world to us and include a couple of fur babies. When we aren't busy watching sports and betting on the game, we are entertaining with friends.

I do have a writing cave, but honestly, most of my work comes from the kitchen, the heartbeat of any home. Since noise doesn't disturb me too much when writing, I can write and keep the pulse on the family at the same time. And... Possibly enjoy my favorite, sinful treat... Cookie dough!

The writer-reader world is my lifeline. I'm addicted and each time I get a message from a reader, I'm thrilled. There's quite a few stories planned for the next several months. I'm hoping the readers fall in love with my next series, The Creek Series. A story that is guaranteed to bring out all the emotions.

If you've read my books, thank you! It truly means the world.
