★Blog Tour Stop + Four Star Review!★ Life's A Capella by Yessi Smith

I want to tell you how great my life was. How I lived without regrets. With constant laughter. Without any tears. I want to tell you how I lived each moment to the fullest. How each breath I took was fresh and full of life. With eagerness. Without any fear.
I want to tell you all of that, but then my story would be masked with lies and not worth telling.
My life didn’t start until I left my past. And I left everything. My mother, my friends, my name.
My new name, the name everyone knows me by is Erin Lewis.

Four years after finding the courage to leave her hometown in Alabama, Erin is finally happy with where her life has led her. Not only is she secure in her environment, but the relationships she has formed center her, making her forget how damaged she once was. Before she can fully settle into her new life, her past crashes into her present, unraveling a set of events that destroy the very foundation she has built her new life on.

Taylor's Review!
I received and ARC of this book for a Blog Tour.

This book was...well it was amazing!

Be forewarned that this book touches on subjects that may be difficult for some readers to handle! However, Yessi does an amazing and graceful job weaving said subjects into this book!

Erin is a hell of a woman. She's had to endure things in life that no body should have to. After running from her mom and her mom's addiction to alcohol and drugs, her past, even her own name, Erin's life seems to be going okay. Until one day it isn't.

When Trent shows up and offers Erin a banana (No you actual banana) a relationship is the last thing on her mind. Sure enough though, a relationship is exactly what she gets.

And it's adorable and amazing. Until one day it isn't.

When Erin's past comes knocking on her door, quite literally, her entire life takes a turn for the worst.

Will Erin follow in her moms footsteps, or will she step up and do what's right by the person she never expected to have to prove herself to?

I LOVED this book! I thought it was extremely well written, and I loved the depth to Erin's character! My only issue with this book was that I would have liked to see Trent fight a little harder to help Erin through the turn her life takes, i would have loved to see him be more supportive of her, even though she did a damned good job at pushing him away.

Overall though, this book is a must read!

Meet Yessi Smith

I’m a Hispanic living in South Florida with my redneck husband
from Texas and our “half breed” son, who is actually the reason I started
writing again after years of celibacy. My son loves stories, but not the kind
you can read in an existing book. No, he’d rather make up a story, complete
with our own illustrations. So, thank you, Son, for igniting a flame I had let
go out.

I also live with two dogs: a neurotic Border Collie we call
Nitro and a midget Rottweiler named Nisa.
I have always found my sanctuary at the beach and in music and
writing. I wish I could write rhymes so I could become a famous rapper, but
rhyming is completely lost on me.

I have a Bachelor’s
degree in Business Management and a Master’s in Human Resource Management. I
have held several jobs, from picking up dog crap to upper management positions.
And now I am hoping to leave the business world behind so I can live full time
in a world that does not exist until I place my fingers on.
