Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway: Conflagration by Tessa Teevan

Title: Conflagration (The Wellingtons #2) 
Author: Tessa Teevan 
Publication Date: October 29, 2014 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

Branson Wellington? The name, my name, is usually followed by fucking prick or self-serving bastard, and I can't say I haven't earned those titles. It's true. I'm not the good guy. I'm not the boy next door. I'm definitely not your Prince fucking Charming. Not even close.

And I never wanted to be. Until her. The day I pulled her from the wreckage was the day that my life changed.

Who would have thought that one little lie had the power to throw two lives so off course?

Love has never been in the cards for me, but now that she’s here, I have no idea how I’m ever going to let her go. Even if I don’t deserve her.

Because like I said, I’m a self-serving bastard and some things never change.

*Conflagration is the second in an Explosive spin-off series called The Wellingtons. Can be read as a standalone.

“There are some questions I need to ask you, but we can do that in a little bit. Until then, is there anyone you want us to call? Someone on scene was able to find your purse, which fortunately hadn’t been destroyed in the blast. There was no emergency contact information in your purse, however, and you’ve only been out of surgery for a couple of hours. We haven’t been able to track anyone down as of yet.”

The last thing I want is Victoria and William showing up here, especially with Benjamin in tow. Not wanting to worry anyone, I decide I’ll call Alyssa once things calm down. 

“No, I’m not from around here, and the last thing I want to do is worry my family. When I’m feeling a little more rested, I’ll give them a call.” The nurse gives me an understanding smile, and I sigh with relief that she’s not going to push me on this. At least not yet. 

“Okay, Ms. Covington. I understand completely. I’ll just set your purse here, and if you feel up to it, your cell is still inside. Now, I need to answer this page, but if you need anything in the meantime, don’t hesitate to hit the nurses’ call button. You may feel a little drowsy from the pain medication, so for now, try to get some rest.”

I watch as she leaves the room before I rest my head on my pillow, replaying the events of the past twenty-four hours. What should’ve been the prelude to one of the best days of my life has turned into a nightmare. Instead of wearing a white wedding dress, I’m stuck in a hospital gown. And even now, my fiancé—or, well, former fiancé—is the last man on my mind. 

No, instead, I’m thinking about the beautiful man who saved my life. Who once told me that he was beyond saving. The night I met Branson Wellington, he was a mess. A drunken, pitiful, angry mess. This evening, I saw no signs of that man. I saw confidence. I saw arrogance. I saw determination. But I also saw the pain, the anger, the frustration. That broken man is still in there no matter what strides he’s made since that night eight months ago. Tonight, he saved me. And even though he once said that it’s impossible, I’m making it my mission to save him, too.

I'm a twenty something book junkie who is also obsessed with sports. Bengals, Buckeyes, Reds are my teams! I work for the government during the day, hang out with Air National Guard on the weekends, and have been married to my own book boyfriend for over seven years. We currently live right outside of Dayton, OH with our two cats. If I’m not writing or looking through tons of photos of hot men, all in the name of research, then you can probably find me curled up with my Kindle, ignoring the rest of the world. I love my sports almost as much as I love my books. My other obsessions include red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Grace Potter.

When I first read a book by Tessa Teevan (Ignite (Explosive #1)), I was hooked and I knew that she is going to be one of my favorite authors. Since that first book, I’ve read everything she writes and I enjoyed each one of her stories J Having said that, I think that Conflagration (The Wellington #2) is my favorite of all her books. There is just something about Branson and Ari that really touched me.

The story in itself is intriguing and captivating. I was hooked from the first sentence and I feel obliged to say that the story brought tears to my eyes more than once. We’ve got the basics of the relationship between Branson and Knox, and the reason for the rift between them (Meghan) in Knox’s book, Incinerate (Explosive #2). But for me, it was really interesting the read everything form Branson’s POV. It definitely explains a lot of things and it helped me to see Branson in a completely different light. Even though, there are quite a few heartbreaking scenes in this story, they are nicely balanced with funny or pantie melting hot ones :) 

I thoroughly enjoyed Branson and Ari’s antics while they were building their relationship. I loved the fated to be together vibe I got from their story and I enjoyed seeing how they make each other stronger and somehow just fit perfectly together. It was interesting to see how each one of them overcomes their past and learn to trust again, learn to be strong and fight for their dreams, learn to how to love and find the love of their lives.

A great addition to the book was the possibility to revisit the other Wellington characters :) And I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series. There are some really hot cousins that deserve their story to be told :D

In a few words, this is an amazing read and everyone who loves contemporary romance will enjoy it. So don’t hesitate and just #oneclick it ;)

  love 2
