Blog Tour: Compass (Siren Song #2) by Stephie Walls @StephieWalls

Title: Compass
Series: Siren Song #2
Author: Stephie Walls
Genre: Adult, Romance
Published: August 11, 2016
Sometimes two souls connect on a level where words go unspoken and they just know.

Their hearts align and right or wrong—they just know.

When Moby and Piper collide—they just know. He didn’t have to shout his love from the mountaintops. The only heart that needed to hear his words listened silently to his soul’s communication. A bond that would transcend time and unexpected heartache.

The moment Piper laid eyes on Moby—she just knew. She didn’t have to await results. All the evidence she needed was there…taunting her, challenging her, testing their resolve. Daring her to persevere.

Parents, siblings, and countless friends—none of them knew. Oblivious to their turmoil, blind to their pain. Had they opened their eyes, it was there in front of them, for everyone to see…if only they looked.

A broken man.
A shattered woman.
A crumbling marriage.
No one knew.

*Based on a true story.

Where to begin with Compass ... let's start with, HOLY CRAP!  Compass is based on a true story.  It's the Author's story.  You should know that straight out of the gate and when you finish, let that sink in for just a little while and realize, WOW this woman is a fighter, I want to be just like her when I grow up!

Compass is an emotional roller coaster ride from the beginning.  Our characters, Piper and Moby have recently eloped in Vegas with only their parents blessings.  Moby's brothers, Pipers "Fish" as her friends are dubbed and their combined friends had no idea they were even seriously dating.  Moby is a bit of a playboy, Piper is a control freak.  She's older than him by a few years and had almost given up on ever finding someone to settle down with.  But, sometimes two souls connect and you just know and for a little while it seems life can't get any sweeter than this.  

Then tragedy strikes, and not in the sense that anyone dies but Moby suffers a debilitating stroke.  Armed with only the knowledge of what a stroke looks like even though Moby doesn't realize what is happening at the time, Piper gets him to the E.R. and their worlds are quickly sent into a tailspin.  Life goes quickly through a complete 180 of what it formerly was.  Carefree and happy are gone, in their place is lost and downright depressed.  Once a completely healthy, physical fitness trainer, Moby now has to figure out how to rework everything on his left side of his body.  

Emotions run high throughout this story.  Marriage, friendships and family will be tested. Keep a box of Kleenex next to you, you're going to need it.  Reading this book, knowing I work with this person on a daily basis, seeing the strength that she had and still has is incredible.  I'm so glad to know her, to be a part of her life and to have had the opportunity to read something that was very real in her life.  Seeing what she went through, how she coped and came out the other side is inspiring.  A story like this helps you realize you shouldn't sweat the small stuff.  Hug your loved ones, tell them you love them every day, for this day could be the last day. Bravo Stephie and thank you for sharing your story with us!

Highly Recommended!

I've lived all over the country but have made Greenville, South Carolina my home for the last 20 of my 37 years. I have a serious addiction to anything Coach and would live on Starbucks if I could get away with it. If you follow me on Facebook you'll also find that I'm slightly enamored with Charlie Hunnam. I'm an avid reader (literary whore to be more precise) averaging around 300 novels a year. I have a penchant for great love stories, sensual poetry and am a romantic at heart.

I currently work full-time in the Greenville area and fill my "extra" time with writing contemporary romance novels with a hint of erotica. I couldn't do it without the support of my family and friends who push me to keep going when I don't have the confidence or patience.
