BLOG TOUR and GIVEAWAY: Love and Skate Tour: Down N Derby by Lila Felix


Lila Felix made the decision to write a book after being encouraged by friends. She is a stay at home mom to three wild children and three boisterous dogs. Between writing books she loves read and watch sappy 80's movies. Favorite things: ice cream, anything purple, roller derby and any kind of music she can get her hands on. If you're looking for her, try looking under Cypress trees in the swamps of Louisiana.



On the rink she’s tough, she’s a leader, she’s fast and she’s the epitome of a rebellious girl. But Nellie’s been hurt, only once, but it was enough to make her look at life through different eyes and off the rink she’s a timid girl who loves with no pretenses.
A long time ago Owen Black was betrayed by the girl he thought he loved and the guy he called his best friend. The anguish set off a domino effect of negativity in his life and he never has fully recovered. He meets Nellie Forrester and thinks he can let it go for her. 
But how can you love someone when the wounds from your past are still wide open?

Links to Purchase:

Despite the odds, Reed Wolfe is making it, by the skin of her teeth. Her dreams and aspirations will have to wait until she can get on her feet. Because right now she’s homeless and churning on a downward spiral. 

Falcon Black is existing. Not living, not thriving, just jutting along a path. But when he finds Reed, he can’t resist the urge to help her, lighten her load. But Falcon tends to go overboard, over the line, crossing boundaries he never thought he would and risking her trust in the process. 

Can she accept his love or will it end up smothering her?

Links to Purchase:



Maddox is running. 
By accident, he discovered long ago that he was adopted as a baby and his need to find his biological father has consumed him ever since. Now, on a road trip, determined to find his father and his sanity, and armed with locations and his cousin, Nixon, to help him, maybe he can find the answers he’s been searching for. With nothing but a suitcase and a wad of cash to get him there, lead after lead takes him further from home.
But he’ll find much more than he intended.
He finds Storey, a pint sized pin-up model who has learned painful lessons about guys. Her wounds run deep, but so do his. She knows what she wants, but will she recognize it when it’s right in front of her?
Maddox can’t touch anyone without feeling like his skin is crawling, but just maybe his instinct to protect this amazing girl will supersede his own hang-ups. 
If he can brush her skin and start to feel alive inside...everything will change.

I loved the first two books!!! There both were outstanding!! When Lila announced this book, I flipped because I knew that it would be just as good as the others. 

Best part of the book: The whole story was amazing!! I don't even know where to begin. I love Maddox as much as I loved Owen and Falcon. This story was not like the other ones.  Maddox and his cousin Nixon are on a road trip.  However, this was much different than a typical road trip, Maddox is searching for his biological father because he found out that he was adopted.  

Maddox and Nixon head town to town but keep coming up empty. It is not until they hit the west coast they get a lead and Maddox finds Storey. LOVE her!!! She and Maddox are a perfect fit.

Now, I want to tell you every detail of this book and gush on for forever, but I won't spoil it.  Just trust me... READ IT!

I do have to say one thing. LILA FELIX did something that NO AUTHOR has done. Her epilogue is the best ever!!!! Every author will be copying her!!! Excellent job!!

Not so great about the book: There is nothing wrong with this book! Bring on the next one Lila!!
