Sway by Kate Roth Blog Tour

Love. Family. Business.

Talent manager, Beau Harris only cares about one of those things. His career is suddenly in a downward spiral and the only friend he has left is client and pop star, Vanessa Curtis. 

Seeking refuge from the life he’s come to loathe, Beau moves in with Vanessa to focus on her upcoming tour. Yet unexpectedly, he ends up focusing more on his budding friendship with her sister and back-up dancer, Whitney.

Finally able to open up, Beau and Whitney share with each other the vulnerabilities they’ve hidden from the rest of the world. Unable to deny that their connection burns deeper than attraction, they’re forced to confront the feelings they’ve long since given up on. But the emotional baggage, the struggle to break old patterns, and the fear of what Vanessa will think makes falling in love more complicated than they could’ve imagined.

Love. Family. Business.

Those three things now hopelessly woven together, Beau will have to fight for the happily ever after he never knew he truly wanted.

**This book is a stand-alone novel in the Confession Records collection but may be better understood after reading book #1, Natural Harmony**

4.5 Mean Girl Hearts!!

I have to start out that I was not a fan of Beau at all in Natural Harmony. I will admit that I was a bit hesitant when Kate told me that she was going to do his book next. I mean he is an emotionless manwhore in that book. There was no way that I could love him. Well smack my ass and call me Sally I do love him after Sway. I didn't think it was possible but I do. Now, I won't be adding him to my book boyfriend list anytime soon, but if I did have a list with silver fox older men, he would be on that list.

Sway starts out a little bit after Natural Harmony ends. Sabrina has fired Beau as her manager and is engaged to a much younger Wade(her assistant and mighty hot if I must say). He has also lost his other client to a rival music company and is down on his luck and needing a break. He hops on a plane to LA to visit his one and only client Vanessa and decide what he can do to get his career back in order. What he didn't expect was to get a WamBam in the gut after getting a look at Vanessa's new back-up dancer, her sister Whitney.

Whitney has some issues of her own. Her dad killer her mom when she was 13 years old and is currently in prison. Her sister sent her to Europe to a boarding school where she honed in on her dance skills. She has never had a true relationship and believes that no one will ever stay in her life. She has always had her dance to fall back on.

What I loved about this book is that they are both adults. They have jobs and they both need to be told that they are worthy of love. After you find out why Beau is so closed off, you see why he is the way that he is. I love that Whitney is able to see beyond all the rumors and see how great of a guy he is. He is very protective of his clients and those that he loves. This is not to say that there are not issues that come up in the book, there is a HEA, but there is things in the way that make it a relationship to fight for. I liked that they took it slow, that it was not a hook up that evolves into a relationship, but rather a relationship that evolves into a sexual relationship.
I can't wait for the next books in this series!! And I am glad that Beau finally got his woman.

Inspired by music, film, art and the wealth of stories she has heard through her career as a professional hair stylist, Kate Roth has been dreaming up love stories since junior high.

Kate’s first two novels, new adult romance The Low Notes and new adult paranormal romance Reckless Radiance were released by Rebel Ink Press in May of 2012 and September of 2013. 
Her third novel and her first venture into independent publishing, Natural Harmony, will be out December 30th 2013. She is hard at work on the next two novels in the Confession Records collection, as well as her first erotic romance, Last Resort. She is a small business owner and lives in Indiana with her husband, Adam and their dog, Sampson.
