 Blog Tour



Gabriella Alvarez is the youngest of the Alvarez family. She’s watched her best friend marry her brother and another brother find love. Deep down, she’s looking for love, but she can’t quite shake the college sweetheart that broke her heart.

Dr. Ashton Holder works for the famous Alvarez practice. He and Gabriella have always clashed—she continues to see him only has the rough-edged doctor with no bedside manner, but he’s really made strides to put this image behind him.

When Gabriella discovers a secret from Ashton’s past, though, she does her best to help him uncover something that will change his life forever, but a misunderstanding between them rocks him to the core. When he finally uncovers the secret, he must learn to put his past aside and try and move on with a future willed with hope and dreams.

Life’s Turned Upside Down is the third book in Anne Stone’s Show Me series.

Life’s Turned Upside Down is a sweet romance full of heart and emotions. Gabriella is the youngest of her family. She has witnessed so many around her find their HEA. She wonders if she will ever find hers. She really wants to find it, but she finds it hard after her ex broke her heart. She’s not sure she can trust anyone completely with her heart again.

Ashton is a doctor in her family’s medical practice, and he and Gabriella have never gotten along. He’s not the friendliest person, and she has no problem letting him know exactly how she feels. However, her brother thinks he sees some passion behind her harsh words. Neither Ashton nor Gabriella realize how each of them will turn the other’s life upside down. Their lives will never be the same again.

There is no doubt in the beginning that Gabriella doesn’t like Ashton AT ALL! Her family has come to accept him, and as she spends more time around him, she discovers why he has acted the way he has. Through her acceptance and love for him, I got to see what a special person she really was. When she discovers a secret about his past, she will run the risk of losing him. But, I love that she goes forward with eventually revealing the truth to him despite possibly losing him…she feels like the truth will ultimately free him from his painful past even if his future might not include her.

Ashton was a complex character. I, like Gabriella, wasn’t a huge fan of his. As I got to know him, I came to love him. I could completely understand why he acted the way he did. Underneath his tough exterior was still the little boy who wanted a family to love and accept him. I loved watching the walls around his heart completely shatter to let Gabriella in.

While this is a standalone in the series, I do wish I had begun at the beginning. There are a lot of characters, and I would have loved to have gotten to know them from the beginning. But, I can download the earlier books and start over! I recommend reading if you are looking for a romance that will definitely pull at your heartstrings.



Anne Stone was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri but now lives in the cold state of Wisconsin with her faithful Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She writes heartfelt sweet contemporary romance and is the author of the Show Me and Williams & Company series. She loves to tell a story and that’s what you’ll definitely get in an Anne Stone novel.

Anne’s degree is in education but she has worked in the corporate sector managing a large number of staff. Now, she works from home where part of her day is still spent in the corporate world and the other part is dreaming of her heroes and heroines.

Book Cover
Kay Harris
Series: I Want Morrison, Book 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance, New Adult Romance, Interracial Romance

When a strict and careful corporate lawyer collides with a laid-back, risk-taking activist they find an unexpected, unexplainable, and possibly, an unemployment-risking kind of love.
Candace Gleason is making all of her dreams come true. She passed the bar, landed a great job, and is making a killer salary. Everything seems to be working out perfectly. That is until she’s assigned to keep the boss’s petulant son out of trouble.
Jack Morrison is the rebellious black sheep of a mighty real estate family. He runs a non-profit whose mission is to save poor people from evil corporations, like the one his own family owns. He is obnoxious, horrible, ridiculously charming, and insanely hot. He is the bane of Candace’s very existence.
Candace has more to worry about than just keeping Jack from chaining himself to bulldozers, though. She has to keep him from locking up her heart, too.
I thoroughly enjoyed this love story with a difference, and recommend it to readers who like a steamy romance filled with adventure, humor, passion, drama, and a world of surprises.
