Unstoppable Blog Tour Stop!!!

His eyes were rimmed red when they met mine. "I die inside every time he touches you, and there's nothing I can do about it. You've made it clear that you're going to go on with this sham of a marriage, no matter who it hurts in the process. You lie to everyone, Jordi, including the people you're supposed to love the most. And I just can't take it anymore. This is not the way I want to live my life."

"I thought I was worth it," I mumbled.

"You have no idea what you're worth," he said softly. "That's the problem."

In book #2 of the Fierce saga, Jordi Hemphill has joined her true love Jace Riga on cross-country tour with Giovanni Carnevale and Dreaming in Blue. The star-crossed lovers anticipate the freedom to explore their burgeoning relationship, despite the continued complications of her ties to her tormentor Eddie Nix and Jace's new standing as a rock icon. Nothing is as it seems, which make the pair fodder for the rumor mill. Forces from all directions threaten to tear them apart, but it is Jordi's own insecurities that drive a wedge between the aspiring diva and her hero.

Author Ginger Voight further delves into the key issues that keep Jordi from defeating her demons once and for all. This sweeping saga unearths revelations that will rock Jordi's world forever... and set her on the path to the path to her story's epic conclusion.

This is the first series I have read by Ginger, and I have to say, I’m now going to have to buy all of her other books and read them, because I thought this book was awesome!  

What I liked best about this book can be summed up in one word: Jordi.  She’s so amazing.  I say we need more plus size women portrayed in books, since the average woman is a size 14.  Jordi has all the insecurities of a normal woman; she self-doubting, but it’s mixed with a confidence and swagger that just makes you love her.  It made me love her, anyway.  She’s unapologetic for who she is, even if she’s plagued with insecurity at times.  She wants love but pushes it away at the same time…she’s in a place that many people can identify with.

And Jace.  Oh…Jace Riga.  Wounded war veteran with a voice like butter and with an unfailing love for Jordi just as she is.  He’s a great hero.  You’re going to love him.

So, this book is the continuation of the story from “Fierce”.  It’s filled with angst, love, desire, mayhem…it’s a wild ride.  It also brings together a lot of the themes introduced in “Fierce”, which makes it a very satisfying read in that respect.  Personally, I love it when it all just seems to come together, and that is definitely where this series is headed.

Ginger Voight is definitely a talented author.  Girlfriend can write.  She manages to really engage the reader in the characters and their stories.  Even the scumbag characters (*cough* Eddie *cough*) still reel you in, and you become invested in their lives and where it’s all going.  I think this is a great story with great characters, and I give it 4 very impressed stars!

Ginger Voight is prolific author, freelance writer and optioned screenwriter. Her fiction is diverse, with novels like the edgy, coming-of-age drama DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS, and the fun family adventure for kids of all ages, COMIC SQUAD.
Having grown up reading different authors like Danielle Steel and Stephen King, Ginger has always been drawn more to story than to genre. This shows up in her various stories. Titles such as MY IMMORTAL and TASTE OF BLOOD are a delicious, heady mix of horror, suspense, and romance.
Genre romance, however, has held a special place in her heart, ever since she read her first Harlequin novel when she was only eleven. As a result, Ginger is making a name for herself writing romances of her own, starring women who look more like the average American woman rather than those traditionally represented in the size-biased American media. Her Rubenesque romances were created especially for those heroines with fuller figures, who can still get the man of their dreams if only they believe they can. Such titles include UNDER TEXAS SKIES, LOVE PLUS ONE, THE GROUPIE TRILOGY, FIERCE and PICTURE POSTCARDS.
Ginger was included in the best-selling book by Smith Magazine NOT QUITE WHAT I WAS PLANNING, featuring her six-word memoir.
