Blog Tour, Giveaway, and Interview with Author Shantel Tessier about her upcoming Book Undescribable

Book Synopsis:
Samantha Hall needs a fresh start

Broken hearted and alone in a new city, Samantha begins to build a new life for herself while working as a bartender. Focusing on her new friends and rebuilding her broken life, Samantha is content.

Until she meets him – attorney by day and a cocky, foul mouth playboy by night.
All girls want Slade Long, but not one has ever been able to keep his attention for long. Having a different woman in his bed every night is how he prefers it-no emotion, no connection.

Until he meets her - an angel with the sweetest voice he has ever heard and the most enticing green eyes. Samantha makes him second guess his actions and has him wanting something he didn’t know existed. How can a man who has never been in love, be so sure? Can real love happen this fast?

Burned by her past, Samantha struggles to keep up with the overwhelming passion she feels for Slade. She knows that he will be nothing but trouble to her already fragile heart, but how long can she continue to deny the love that she feels for him?
Will Samantha let Slade prove his love is real, or will she push him away?

She thought she knew love……
He thought he never wanted love…..
Together they will show each other what they can’t live without.

My Review:

4.5 stars  at 24% I wanted to put this aside because I was not feeling it at all. I stuck with it and in the end I am very happy that I did. Hence the 4.5 stars. 

I had a hard time getting into this one in the beginning. Just could not seem to connect with the characters at all. Then about 30 % in something changed and I was connected completely with the characters and had to finish reading it to see what was going to happen with Slade and Samantha. 

Samantha Is broken hearted and moves to a new City to get her life back on track. She takes a job as a bartender and has a couple people that she calls friends and trusts. She realizes all to soon how one person's wrong decision has changed her life forever. 

Samantha is strong, she is independent, she can be rude when she needs to be, and we see that when she meets Slade for the first time. 

Slade swoon worthy for sure, but Man-whore who does not do relationships at all, that is until Samantha calls him one night looking for her Boyfriend and he falls in love with her voice. He says she sounds like an angel. 

once the two of them meet Samantha is Rude at first, but then decides to give things a shot and see where they go. It is hard for Samantha to keep her distance and she is finding that her feelings for Slade are undescribable. Slade doesn't do relationships so all the feelings he is starting to have for Sam are hard for him to figure out. He has never felt like this for anyone before. 

I love how the Long Family was already connected to Samantha and how they all treated each other with so much love and affection. It made you want to be a part of their family. 

This book was Hot, And by the end I was wanting more and did not want it to end. I hope we get more from the other characters in the book with some nice cameo's of Sam and Slade mixed in there.

I would like to welcome Shantel to Chris Book Blog Emporium today and hope you all enjoy her Q&A 

1.     What inspired you to write Undescribable?
I have had a book idea in my mind for quite a while. This past Christmas when everyone was trying to figure out what they wanted to do for their New Year’s resolution. I told myself I was going to take that step to making it happen. I have always loved to read and it just felt like it was the right time for me to write my own book.

2.     What books have most influenced your life most?
I don’t think I can narrow it down. Every book I have read has had an impact to my life in some way. Some leave me in tears and others leave me smiling and laughing. You either compare your life to what you just read, or it makes you feel grateful for the life you have.

3.     What author has influenced you the most?
There are several; Colleen Hoover, Abbi Glines, Teresa Mummert, J. Sterling and many more. I follow them all on Facebook and they are always thanking their readers, showing their gratitude. I want to be that way. I want to show my readers that not only did I write a novel, but that this novel will be nothing without them. The readers are what makes this journey worth all the ups and downs.

4.     What book are you reading now?
Right now, I am not reading anything. I have been too busy trying to get Undescribable ready for the readers. Although, the last book I read was Safe Word by Teresa Mummert. I loved it!  

5.     When did your desire to write start?
  When I was young. My grandma still has little stories that I wrote back when I was a kid. I love to read, I could read a book a day. So many books have stuck with me throughout the years. I wanted to touch readers like I have been touched. When I started writing Undescribable it was a small idea, that idea has become a dream. That dream is becoming a reality. I couldn’t be happier for the world to meet Slade and Samantha. I hope that everyone loves them as much as I do.

6. Do you have any advice for other writers?
      Never give up! This has not been an easy journey. I have had days where I cried and just wanted to give up and days where I smiled so hard my cheeks hurt. The closer I get to self-publishing, the more freak outs I have had. It is a roller coaster ride, but it is worth it. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it. The only person that can hold you back is yourself.

7. What can readers look forward to in the future?
   I am already halfway through writing book two in the Undescribable series. I want to have it out before the New Year. I know as a reader, I hate having to wait forever for the next book in a series. So, I am going to try my hardest to get the rest of this series out there soon.

8. Who or what inspires you?
  Music. I have to listen to it while I’m writing.

10. If you could be a superhero, what supernatural power would you choose?
    To live without sleep. Being a mother and wife, there are not enough hours in the day. Trying to write, clean house, cook dinner and spend the time with my family. There is never enough time for everything or everybody.

11. Which is your favorite movie?
  I love to go to the movies. I can watch anything from chick flicks, to horror, to action. Doesn’t matter. Just give me a Coca Cola Icee and some popcorn, I’m good to go.

12. What kind of music do you like?
 I listen to everything from country, Rock, or dubstep. I am just not a big fan of rap.

13. What advice would you give to someone who wants to publish a book?
   Not everyone is going to like your book. That’s okay. Don’t be afraid to write what you want because you are afraid of the feedback you may receive. So far I am hearing great things from my readers who have received ARC’s of Undescribable. Nothing feels better than getting a review that makes you cry when a reader tells you how much they loved your book. I promise all the tears you will shed and all the doubt you have will be worth it.

14. Do you have a message for my blog’s followers?
  I want to thank Casey at Hardcover Therapy and everyone else who has wanted to help me out with this Blog Tour. And all the readers who have messaged me how they can’t wait for Undescribable to be released. The support from all of you has been overwhelming and I am truly grateful. It has warmed my heart knowing readers are as excited as I am about this story that I have put my heart into. Thank you. I hope that you all have a chance to read Samantha and Slade’s story. Feel free to contact me, I would love to hear from all of you. <3
