BLOG TOUR ~ Whole Life Makeover by Shealy James ~ JMAC

Shealy James
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Whole Life Series Book 2 -- All books are standalone novels. 
This isn’t a self-help book. No, my tale is too desperate to be helpful or even cautionary. This book is the story of how I stopped being plastic and became someone real. 

People call me Kitty, and this is my story. 

Katherine “Kitty” Peters is done doing what Daddy says. She wants freedom, and she wants it now. When her father gives her a month to take the life he offers or find her own way, she takes full advantage and makes over her whole life. It doesn’t take long for her heart to take over, making Katherine more vulnerable than ever before. Unfortunate circumstances force her to realize that escaping her father’s reign is harder than she imagined, especially when the tattooed maverick she fell in love with needs her help. Katherine is manipulated into making a deal with the devil and return to her old life only to discover her one-month makeover may have changed her more than she realized.

I really enjoyed reading Whole Life Makeover.  
Katherine (Duchess or Kitty) had it rough.  She was born rich.  Her parents hated each other, yet were together because it "looked good" for business.  Katherine's father was a big business man, and it was all about how he, and his family were perceived.  Katherine, at the age of 28, was a puppet doll.  Her parents controlled her every being.  They told her what to eat, wear, drive, how to look, they even picked who she dated.  Even though Katherine couldn't stand them, she did what was expected of her, because their really wasn't much else she could do.   Until she met Adam, or as she called him, Maverick.
Gosh, Maverick is just yummy.  With his dark hair, dark eyes, and TATTOOS, he's nothing short of delicious.  Oh, and he's an artist.  YUMMM
Anyways, both Katherine and Adam keep running into each other unexpected.  The connection Katherine feels with him, is UNLIKE anything she's ever felt toward any human being, EVER. 
But, with her parents, she knows they would never approve, after all Katherine needs to be with someone who can takeover the family business once her father can't do it anymore.
Without giving anymore away, I will say this book was really good.
The whole time all I wanted was for Katherine to tell her parents off, and run to Maverick.  Shealy has a way with words.  I didn't want to stop reading.  I just wanted to know what was going to happen between the two; if anything was to happen.
Whole Life Makeover is the story of finding your true self.  Not letting people, whoever they might be, tell you how to run your life.  
I give Whole Life Makeover a bold 4 stars.

“You can’t walk around here in nothing but my shirt and expect me to be able to do anything but you.”

~ TEASER #2 ~
“It’s a funny story, really. You see, I met this girl, this beautiful, amazing girl. We spent one month together, a staggering month. Then she left me, broke me. I was going after her. I was ready to board a plane to get my girl back because all I wanted was more months with her.”


“Why would you be willing to do this?” he fired my question back at me.

“Because I never had another choice,” I admitted sadly.

“And you’ve accepted that?” 

“I’ve accepted that.”

“Then I guess we better get to know each other better.”

“I guess so.”
