Arrows by Melissa Gorzelanczyk — A Valentine Blog Tour!

15 February 2016


I hope you all had a great valentines! I did have a great time because it was my best friend's birthday. Yep, people make babies in honor of my best friend on her birthday, hah!

Anyway, did y'all miss me? I'm sure you did (humor me). I've been MIA for a couple of days because of a new job (which I'm really enjoying, so yay!) but now I'm trying to manage my time so I don't end up neglecting my blog, so now I'm back with another 2016 debut by Melissa Gorzelanczyk (that's a super mouthful name, I don't even know how to pronounce it)—so cute and filled with fluff, it'll make your heart flutter.

A modern cupid story set in present-day Wisconsin combining the fantastical elements of Greek mythology with the contemporary drama of MTV's Teen Mom.

People don’t understand love. If they did, they’d get why dance prodigy Karma Clark just can’t say goodbye to her boyfriend, Danny. No matter what he says or does or how he hurts her, she can’t stay angry with him . . . and can’t stop loving him. But there’s a reason why Karma is helpless to break things off: she’s been shot with a love arrow.

Aaryn, son of Cupid, was supposed to shoot both Karma and Danny but found out too late that the other arrow in his pack was useless. And with that, Karma’s life changed forever. One pregnancy confirmed. One ballet scholarship lost. And dream after dream tossed to the wind.

A clueless Karma doesn’t know that her toxic relationship is Aaryn’s fault . . . but he’s going to get a chance to make things right. He’s here to convince Danny to man up and be there for Karma. But what if this god from Mount Olympus finds himself falling in love with a beautiful dancer from Wisconsin who can never love him in return?

This fast-paced debut novel explores the internal & external conflicts of a girl who finds herself inexplicably drawn to a boy who seemingly doesn't reciprocate her feelings, touching on the issues of love, sex and responsibility, with a heroine struggling to control her destiny--perfect for fans of Katie McGarry's novels and MTV’s 16 and Pregnant.

This is one of the books I've been looking forward to read this year, because, check out that synopsis though! Just the mention of Teen Mom and Greek Mythology, I was sold immediately. I mean, who doesn't love Greek mythology? It's definitely a nerd's guilty pleasure.

So for today's promo post, I've come up with a playlist I believe that fits the whole "I love-you but apparently I really don't but I've been hit with a love arrow so I can't stop love you but now cupid is apparently in love with me too" shebang. It's a handful, but that's pretty much the gist. So, with my impeccable taste in music, I give you a little bit of songs to pop, lock, swing, and groove to while reading this super-duper adorable book.
