Blog Tour: Review, Ten Random Facts, Giveaway: The Fab Life by Mercy Amare

It’s the life I was born to live: billionaire’s daughters, living amongst the rich & famous. But my mom kept me a secret from my dad. Until now.

I am so out of my league. Fancy parties, expensive cars, and a private school for the elite… It sounds like a dream. But everything is not as perfect as it seems on the outside. Here, the secrets are dirty, and the lies comes easy.

Welcome to my fab life.

The Fab Life started out as a fun easy read. I enjoyed stepping into the rich, privileged life with Kihanna. Being introduced to her Billionaire father at 17 and moving across the country to live with him, his wife and step-son is quite a lot to take in for Kihanna. She quickly learns how to handle her “pervy” step-brother Toby and makes a name for herself on the first day of school. I really enjoyed the banter between Kihanna and Toby. They quickly formed a sibling bond and pervy comments aside he really cares about Kihanna and would do anything to protect her. I found myself wanting to be Kihanna for a day, with the chandelier in the bathroom, $9,000 dress, and closet full of shoes already color coordinated. But all the money comes with a price.
I can’t wait to read I Hate Goodbye, book #2 in the Kihanna series, at the end of the year as well as books #3, #4 and #5 next year. I can’t tell you how excited I am that this is a 5 book series. I love longer book series where you really get to know and love (and sometimes hate) the characters. That is something you don’t always get with single and 2 book series.

10 Random Facts
10 – When I was 12 years old, I was obsessed with Avril Lavigne. Because of that obsession, I learned to play the guitar. (I quickly out grew that phase – I am not a fan of her now).

9 – I used to play guitar & bass in a band. And we traveled. I have actually been ON THERADIO. Talking. Singing. Good times.

8 – When I first started writing, it was music. I wrote hundreds of songs. And then when I was 14, I wrote my first book. And another at 15. And so on.

7 – I have ALWAYS loved books. Before I could even read, I made my mom read to me ALLTHE TIME. It was my favorite.

6 – The first non-children’s or MA book I read was The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks when I was 12. I’ve been reading romance books ever since. (Not erotic. Romance).

5 – Growing up, I wasn’t allowed to read or watch Harry Potter. So after I turned 18, I had a field day reading HP, Twilight, and any other paranormal & fantasy book I could get my hands on.

4 – I didn’t have any friends from age 13 to 16. I was homeschooled, and very much sheltered from the world. (Don’t worry, when I turned 16 and could drive myself I made LOTS of friends).

3 – I dream big. When I was a teenager, I thought I would be a rock star. I could have been. But my dream changed. I wanted to be a writer. I did both for a long time, and then decided when I was 21 that I wanted to be a full-time writer. Now, 2 years later, here I am.

2 – I just bought a house. After way too long of writing in bed, on the couch, at the dining room table… I FINALLY have an office. Which I am decorating now! It’s purple. (Which btw, is my new favorite color. It used to be pink).

1 – I have always wanted to die my hair pink, but I never got up the nerve. I probably never will.
