Blog Tour & Giveaway: Draw Me In by Megan Squires!



Publication date: 7th January 2014
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4.5 stars
Synopsis: He’s a young, up and coming businessman with the keys to his family’s Italian wine enterprise.

I’m a fine arts student, navigating life in the Big Apple, my pencil and sketchpad in hand.

We meet. We fall in love.

But it’s not that story.

Sometimes, by a rare gift of fate, two lives cross paths. And hey, if that happens to occur when staring at Michelangelo’s naked masterpiece, even better. We can tell our future children how a seventeen-foot tall marble guy named David brought us together.

But there’s always more to a relationship than its beginning and ever after. In life, there’s a whole lot of backstory. There are ex-fiancés and hot roommates and family members whose advice continues, even beyond the grave.

When you say you love someone, it’s never just that one person you’re saying it to. And it’s never just that one moment that sets everything in motion.

There is always more that draws you in.

This book completely took me by surprise! I was expecting it to be a love story, and it was, but it was a love story with so much more to it! This book was about two characters both trying to find themselves in a way! It was about them learning how to live and how to get the most out of life! I just loved this book! It's so different to the books I normally read, so I wasn't sure what I was going to think about it, but the synopsis and the cover made me look at it twice! Plus, I was still going to read it because it's Megan lol! The plot of this book took me by surprise! I wasn't expecting certain elements of it to play such a crucial part of the story, but I think the author did a fantastic job showing the crucial elements of the plot and developing them! The plot did have twists and turns that I didn't see coming! The twists and turns added so much to the plot and most of them were just so unexpected! I did get through this book in a few sittings and it's definitely a book that I would recommend to an older teenager because I think they would enjoy it most! I also loved that there wasn't any sex in this book! Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of hot scenes, but just no full on sex scenes! It's refreshing to read a book without a sex scene, as near enough every single contemporary book out there has some form of a sex scene in it! The main characters were awesome! Julie was the main character and she was hilarious! I love her funny and bubbly personality! She made an awkward situation even more awkward, which was hilarious to read! She was also so clumsy! She was such a genuine person though and I loved that about her! I also connect with her really well! I loved the way Julie handled herself as well! Even though she was clumsy, her head was really screwed on as well! Leo was the love interest of Julie and he was so hot! Like super yummy! I loved Leo, but he was a little harder to read than Julie was! He held his cards close to his chest almost! The more this book progressed, the more I understood why Leo was like this! He had been through so much and he himself had been through so much! He goes through even more in this book and my heart completely went out to him! I completely fell in love with Julie and Leo's relationship in this book! It was so beautiful and so real! It developed amazingly and I just couldn't get enough of it! I have to say that I would have loved it if this book was written in dual point of view! I was maybe hoping it was going to be, but after I read the synopsis, I wasn't really expecting it too! I would have loved to have read some of this book from Leo's point of view as he was such an important part of the story that I would have loved to have been able to go inside his head! I can definitely see why this book is a standalone as everything was all fully resolved and the ending made me cry like crazy! It was so beautiful and I must have sat for like fifteen minutes just crying at it lol! The cover for this book is different to what I was expecting it to look like, but it really suits the character of Leo! Plus, he's hot! And who doesn't love a hot guy on a cover, right? ;) Big thank you to Megan for an ARC of Draw Me In and to Xpresso Book Tours for having me on the Blog Tour!
