VIDEO Interview with Katie McGarry {TAKE ME ON Blog Tour & GIVEAWAY}


Word can't describe how excited/honoured/fangirled I am to share today's post with all of you! Katie McGarry is one of my favourite YA Contemporary authors out there, so having had the chance to interview her has been a major highlight of my year so far! Be sure to show Katie some love in the comments and thank-you to all of you for helping me out by submitting your questions, Xo.... :D

Oh, and don't forget to enter the GIVEAWAY below!


Acclaimed author Katie McGarry returns with the knockout new story of two high school seniors who are about to learn what winning really means.                                                                                 Champion kickboxer Haley swore she'd never set foot in the ring again after one tragic night. But then the guy she can't stop thinking about accepts a mixed martial arts fight in her honor. Suddenly, Haley has to train West Young. All attitude, West is everything Haley promised herself she'd stay away from. Yet he won't last five seconds in the ring without her help.                                                                               West is keeping a big secret from Haley. About who he really is. But helping her-fighting for her-is a shot at redemption. Especially since it's his fault his family is falling apart. He can't change the past, but maybe he can change Haley's future.                                                                                                                                                          Hayley and West have agreed to keep their relationship strictly in the ring. But as an unexpected bond forms between them and attraction mocks their best intentions, they'll face their darkest fears and discover love is worth fighting for.
