Gabby Revealed (A Finding Perfect Novel, Book #2) by Amy Gregory with Giveaway, Book Trailer & Review

Title: Gabby Revealed (Finding Perfect #2) 
Author: Amy Gregory 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
Publication Date: March 25, 2014 
Event Organized By: Literati Author Services, Inc.


Gabby James didn’t have the idyllic childhood many in her little hometown of Renlend, Kansas had. High school was a living hell, but when she graduated she couldn’t bring herself to leave Renlend. The town was her prison, but her family’s bookstore, The Looking Glass, was her one true love. It was the place she could run to, and escape the prying eyes of the ones who taunted her.

Shane Compton was a literary agent in one of the most prestigious publishing houses in New York City. He found no greater rush than finding the next big talent, someone who could take the written word and turn it into an art form. In the span of one rude phone call Shane was drawn into the mystery of just who the fiery new author from Kansas was. When everyone else in the office refused to deal with her, Shane willingly accepted the challenge. There was no logic to the madness, but every time he had contact with her, she drove him wild.

Gabby tried every trick in the book to keep Shane at arm’s length, but he had made good on his promise to come to Kansas. He wanted to pull her out of anonymity, he wanted her in the public eye. Now here he stood, on the sidewalk in front her bookstore, and one look told her he was everything she was afraid he’d be. Too bad she was anything but who he thought she was.

Gabby quickly discovers Shane has more on his mind than just books and with a little help from an ornery matchmaker, he shows her a whole new life through her looking glass.

My Review: 4 1/2 stars 
This was such a great book, I had difficulty putting it down. I loved that Gabby was fiesty, and stood up for herself as a woman. I loved her fierce independence and her huge heart. That same heart that she protected with walls built over time. Shane was a surprise. I liked him from the start. I loved that he called her darling all throughout the book, even the first time they met in person. John was a fantastic character that was near and dear to Gabby, but Shane instantly liked him as well. What a matchmaker he was! I hated the things that Gabby had gone through in her youth, but was glad that she grew the courage to tell Shane about it. I loved Shane for what he did to prove to Gabby that he would be there for her. I absolutely loved the end of this book where the people who always put Gabby down find out her big secret as well as her other one. It was awesome! This was truly a pleasurable read for me, and I loved that it was so easy for me to connect to the characters. Amy has a way of writing that pulls you into the story and makes you feel like a part of it. I'm going to have to go back and read the first book, as well as keep an eye out for the third. 

About the Author

When asked ‘when do you have time to write’, Amy Gregory simply laughs. The real answer is, “in bits and pieces”. She and her husband live in Kansas City with their three fantastic kids that keep them running in three very different directions. Because she sits so much, she always carries a notebook with her at all times. She has an off the wall, snarky, off the cuff sense of humor that often shocks even those who’ve known her for years. And she loves that her children have all been blessed that ability to make others laugh as well. At least she’s grateful most of the time! Her husband often teases her about how she “makes this stuff up” when he’s reading a piece of her work. … The answer—“it just comes to me when I’m typing”. Scary thought, huh!

    1. Thank you so much Amy!! That means a lot to a reviewer like me. I'm wishing I had read the first book, but am unable to afford it right now. It seems like a great series, different from your Racing To Love series, but just as good in every way. :)
