Blog Tour: Review, Excerpt, Giveaway: Two Roads by L.M. Augustine

The only person poetry-loving Cali Monroe hates more than herself is Logan Waters, the geeky kid who lives in the dorm building next to hers.

Ever since Cali's parents told her she would amount to nothing, she has felt entirely inadequate. Friendless and alone, she takes on the mean girl role in hopes it will make her feel better--and Logan serves as the perfect target. He infuriates her with his obnoxiously long lashes, his all too perfect dimpled smile, and his complete lack of personality outside of his intelligence. It doesn't hurt that he's part of the reason her brother is dead, either. So Cali hates him, and he returns the favor. Thus, their prank-filled, insult-driven rivalry is born, and torturing Logan quickly becomes the highlight of her life.

But when Cali's parents set them up on a blind date, she begins to realize Logan might not be as boring as she always thought. He shares her love of poetry, takes a sadistic pleasure in making fun of crepes, and he makes her blush when he calls her smile pretty.

And hey, maybe those long lashes of his aren't
that obnoxious after all…

Two Roads is New Adult Romance about finding love, standing out, and learning to embrace who you are. It contains some language and mild sexual content.

This story far exceeded my expectations. I kept expecting to get to a part that I didn’t love and was bored… and I never found it. It’s a slow building relationship, but not a slow story. It moved at the perfect pace without rushing unnecessarily or dragging out parts that didn’t need to be dragged out. There were parts that I thought, “oh! I know how THIS is going to play out,” and then found out that I had no idea at all.

The author did a phenomenal job incorporating different ways people deal with grief while not making the book overly heavy. There was a lot of heartfelt emotion throughout the story, but I never felt like my emotions had been totally ravaged. I laughed a LOT throughout the entire story. Seriously, the pranks these characters pulled on each other were hysterical. I think I’d like to be friends with the writer of this story considering I love a good prank, myself.

I know that I will be adding L.M. Augustine to my list of ‘must read’ authors. I enjoyed the story and really thought he did a phenomenal job!


I start to step inside, to act normal and ask how her day was or whatever, when I nearly fall flat on my face. 

Because the whole floor is filled with plastic cups. 

Hundreds of plastic cups. 

All in a line, all filled to the top with lemonade, all right in front of me. 

I hold my breath, gasp, and nearly have a heart attack as I look around the room. There is not an inch of actual floor not covered by cups. 

And then, immediately, I know who is behind this. My face flushes. Logan

That bastard is so in for it.
