Always Yours by Kari March Book Tour

Always Yours (Always, #2)



Used. 

That was the only word Cam Greer, the son of a wealthy media mogul, had ever associated with women. When he met Amber Murphy his senior year in high school, he felt like, for once, this girl loved him for him. When she pursued her dreams and left Cam behind, Amber not only crushed Cam's heart, she destroyed his future as well. He was left to start his life over, thinking the only woman that would ever truly love him was gone. 

Cara Pratt has finally got her life on track. Ten years after watching her father literally walk out of her life, Cara has finally found happiness with a new stepfather and her high school boyfriend, Lance. Everything is going according to her plan, until a pregnancy test comes back positive. Once again, she finds herself watching the man she loves walk out of her life, taking her future along with him. 

When Cam and Cara spot each other across the bar at Maggie’s Place four years later, neither of them are interested in starting a relationship. They're both a little unsure and completely untrusting. They try to fight the intense immediate attraction, realizing right off, the seriousness of their chemistry, but as hard as they try, they can't.

As fate pulls them together, will their mistrust push them apart? As the smoldering embers from their pasts come blazing to the surface, fears are uncovered that neither of them are ready to face.

This is Cam and Cara's story and can be read as a standalone.

I felt like I was on an emotional roller coaster of feelings while I read that book- and that is one of the reasons that I LOVED it!   There were times that I was in tears over the way that things were going for Cam and Cara, then in the next breath I had to take a walk away from the kindle because I was pissed at one of them.  In the end, it was an awesome experience and I am so glad I was along for the ride.

We first meet Cam and Cara in Kari's first books Promise Me Always.  I didn't think that I was going to like this book at first because I despise going backwards in a story.  We know what happens to Blake and Tessa, so I expected them to be a huge part of this book.  I was so glad that that was not the case.  Yes, we do get glimpes of them, but remember this is Cam and Cara's story.  We find out how they met, how they felt during their relationship, how they broke up and eventually got back together.  We got to meet their friends and family and see what an important aspect of their lives that they were.

I love me a hot fireman and Cam did not disappoint!  We could see that he is the man that wants to help others and that is what makes him who he is.  He has a backbone and feelings and that ultimatly makes him book boyfriend material.
Cara is a girl that has had to go through a lot in her life.  Her dad pretty much deserts her for his other family and she luckily has a step father who treats and loves her like his own.  At 18 she gets pregnant and loses the baby in a massive car accident.  The father of the baby wanted nothing to do with her after she got pregnant and pretty much made her think that men are jerks that want nothing more then sex.  Even though she goes through all f that, she still grows from the experience and that is what makes her the person that she is today.  She is strong and knows what she wants, which makes her who she is.  

Cam and Cara are awesome together and when they are not they are miserable, and we as readers are miserable because we want them together.   I can honestly say that I am addicted to Kari's books, so I am waiting very patiently for the next one!!



Cara's POV
Lying in the bed of Cam's truck, listening to the perfect sounds of Chris Young's "Lost”, I felt Cam's hand sneak over and grab mine. The warmth of his touch spread through my body.
"Tell me something I don't know about you, Cara," he said, turning his head towards me. "Something normal."
"What's normal?" I asked him, mimicking his actions.
"I don't know..." He paused and looked back up at the stars. "What's your favorite ice cream?"
I laughed, turning my attention to the sky. "Coffee. What's yours?"
"Strawberry. When's your birthday?" he shot right back and I felt as though we were playing twenty questions.
"March seventh. When's yours?" I turned to face him.
"February eleventh. Favorite color?"
"Orange...you?"
"Blue." He rolled over on his side, propping himself up with his arm. "Favorite movie?"
I mimicked his actions again so we were face to face. "Fight Club," I said and a huge smile crossed his face.
"Really? Why?" he asked, his curious grin growing wider.
"Because it's about so much more than fighting, it's about realizing that 'you aren't your fucking khakis’, that things don't matter. Materialism is dumb." I pushed up resting my head on my hand and Cam stared at me with wide eyes. "That and Brad Pitt is fucking delicious in it," I said, wiggling my eyebrows at him.
He busted out laughing. "I knew it had something to do with him."
"Shut up," I said, swatting his chest. "I'd love it even if he wasn't in it. What's yours?"
His eyes darted around like he was about to tell me a huge secret. Leaning closer to me he put his hand up to his mouth like he was going to whisper it into my ear. I bent closer, curious as to what his answer was going to be. "Fight Club," he whispered and I narrowed my eyes at him.
"Don't mock me." I pulled away from him.
"I'm not! I swear. I love that movie," he admitted and I looked at him, cocking my head to the side, silently asking him to prove it. "The things you own end up owning you," he quoted as he stared at me. "That movie made me realize I wanted to fight." His face falling a little at his lost dream.
"What was it like?" I asked him, my voice serious.
"What?"
"Fighting...what was it like?" He shut his eyes and for a moment I regretted asking the question.
"It's addicting, liberating even. At least it was for me." He opened his eyes and gazed up at the stars as he got lost in his own mind. "When you're in the ring, you have no one to help you—it's just you and your opponent. One of you will win and one will lose. You have no one to rely on except yourself and you find out what you're made of real quick. In the ring it doesn't matter who you are, where you came from, or who your father is. The only things that matter are you and your fists."
He sounded proud as he explained it but I felt sad for him. Fighting was everything to him and in one swift moment it was taken from him. I wish I could've seen him fight, just once.
"Do you miss it?"
He didn't miss a beat. "Every fucking day." He looked over at me and a thin smiled appeared on his face. "Amber used to always tell me 'when you walk the path to your dreams sometimes you take a wrong turn and find a new one' and I believe that's what I did. I love firefighting, almost as much as fighting. And who knows, I may have dreams out there I haven't even discovered yet."

I'm an Amazon bestselling, new adult, contemporary author. I'm a wife, mother of 2 amazing kiddos, photographer and owner at K23 Photography & Design, graphic designer and cover designer at K23 Designs, as well as an avid reader and blogger at A Book Whores Obsession! I have been married since 2004 to the most amazing man ever and together we have two amazing children.
I was born in Aurora, CO and still reside their today with my amazing family. I couldn't imagine living anywhere else in the world. I have become accustom to bi-polar weather living here and I absolutely love getting all four seasons (although winters could be a bit shorter.)

I have a small obsession with Starbucks and gummy bears! They make the perfect writing snack! Wine helps a lot too especially with the late night writing sessions. I love the summer and everything that goes along with it, camping, swimming, boating, hiking, etc. I love to travel and Disneyland is one of my family's favorite places to visit together. I have a dream of visiting so many places in the world such as Italy, Greece, Australia, Fiji, Bora Bora and New Zealand (just to name a few.)
