Release Blitz & Book Review of Sombra by Leslie McAdam

Sombra by Leslie McAdam is AVAILABLE NOW!

Everything in moderation. Including virtue. I step off the plane in Madrid and meet his warm eyes. His crooked smile. His devastating charm. Worse, he’s courteous. Honorable. Sensuous. Impossibly attractive. Tavo awakens my desires—my body—without even touching it. I don’t want to be attracted to him. I’ve made my promises. My future has already been determined. I'm wearing a ring. But I can't control this pull to him. He wants to explore my shadows. I want to get out of the light. I shouldn't feel this way... Problem is, I can't restrain my heart.

What can I say about Sombra by Leslie McAdam? Well, where do I begin? This story had my senses on overdrive. The description of the food and locations felt as if I could smell the aroma, taste the cuisine and virtually place myself on an olive farm or on the streets of Spain. It's perfectly written and had me falling in love with two characters that steal my heart from the start.

Gustavo "Tavo" de la Guerra Canto, try and say his name three times and seriously you would wish you'd be saying his name more than three times and in any accent. His family owns an olive farm and he finds himself in a bind to save his family's business. He has too many responsibilities and those dreams he had planned on, may have to pushed aside. His family business, his studies and his want to avoid a commitment all become beautifully complicated, when his family rents a room to a young lady studying abroad.

Kim Brown's zest for life, discovering new things, wanting to absorb all that's around her and realizing she has let too many people influence her, had me falling in love and rooting for her throughout the story.  Kim melts my heart every time she goes after what she wants and discovers something new about herself.  She has one goal and that is to study hard and learn everything she can while she's in Spain. Things for Kim may not go as planned, especially if Tavo  is her biggest temptation.

Sombra, is a beautiful story of self discovery, the love of family and falling in love. It's filled with heartfelt moments, reacquainting ourselves with old friends and making new ones. The passion is felt off of my kindle with every swipe, it had me feeling as if every word I want to say is in Spanish.

She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves – even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it’s Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She’s unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement (that’s what editors are for!). Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she’s not in the writing cave you’ll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.
