A painter, a poet, a publicist, and a punk-rock princess… the boys of High Road Divide have no idea that this tour will change everything.

Soon their connection blurs the line between fame and reality, and it doesn’t take long for Cassandra to follow her inspiration into his world, where paint-stained hands and guitar strings become the basis of their future. But nothing is as perfect as it looks from the outside, and even the most exposed still have secrets to keep. When tour life gets complicated, loyalties will be tested on the road, and they’ll both learn that some harsh realities can’t be painted over.

What happens when an artist stuck in black and white falls for a musician who only lives in color?

Stay tuned for Book 2 in the High Road Divide series – CRUZ – coming spring/summer 2017.




“Nothing else that happens today will be better than this.”

Fortune is my first read by Tia Giacalone! I bought Hey Sunshine late last year after seeing a lot of photos and talk about it in Instagram, but still haven’t gotten around to reading it. Tisk, tisk, Patty. Since I haven’t read Hey Sunshine or Night Fox, I didn’t really know what to expect going into this. I figured it would be a good read. Was it? No. It was an AMAZING READ!!

I mean, I’m not surprised that I loved Fortune. There’s a reason why everyone has been talking about Hey Sunshine and I now know why! Tia Giacalone is a fantastic writing that manages to create characters with so much depth that you end up becoming attached to them. I was hooked from the minute we meet Cassandra and Tommy. I enjoyed the fact that Fortune is told from both of their POVs giving readers more insight into the characters. These characters and the chemistry between them was so beyond swoon worthy! Tommy isn’t your typical jerk who’s full of himself and Cassandra isn’t your typical airhead female lead that depends on the male lead. The banter between them was entertaining, but my favourite thing was the build up of their relationship. It felt so realistic!

Often with New Adult books the plot becomes very predictable and most time repetitive. However, that wasn’t the case here. The storyline had a nice flow to it that kept me hooked and wanting more. There weren’t any moments of fluff or unnecessary filler chapters. Now I’m even more excited to pick up her other books!

Would I recommend Fortune? Yes! If you’re a lover of New Adult and/or Contemporary Romance then I high suggest picking this up and giving it a read!
