Blog Tour and Giveaway for BREAKING ALEXANDRIA by Author K.A. Robinson!!!


Alexandria’s drug-dealing boyfriend, Joel, isn’t exactly the white knight she’s always dreamed of, but she can’t deny the crazy connection they have. She would do anything for him, including helping him sell drugs in order to fit perfectly into his world.

After catching Alexandria dealing for Joel, instead of turning her into the cops, Alexandria’s mother forces her to move to her grandparents’ farm in West Virginia. Spending the summer in the country, away from Joel, is the last thing Alexandria wants to do. But lucky for her, the sexy farmhand, Landon, who helps out around her grandparents’ place, is a very nice distraction. She tries her best to ignore her attraction to him, especially since she still loves Joel.

When Joel does the unforgivable, Alexandria turns to her new friend, Landon, for comfort, and it ignites an undeniable spark of attraction between them. Soon, she finds herself caught between two very different men, and the struggles within her heart just might end up breaking Alexandria.

Our Review:

**ARC kindly provided by author for an honest review**

Grab your tissues ladies and gentlemen because your going to need them. I have learned that all of K.A. Robinson's novels contain a plot twist that always leaves me speechless and my lip trembling.

If I could only use a couple words to describe Breaking Alexandria I would use the word self discovery.

Alexandria is dating Joel, who is a drug dealer, living in a carefree world. Dating Joel makes Alexandria feel invincible. She views her relationship as the forever kind, she would do anything for Joel. It seems that Alexandria and Joel are more like Bonnie and Clyde. Alexandria thinks that she has her life all figured out. At the time is believes that she is happy and content with her life. That was until Alexandria was caught by her mother dealing drugs for Joel. Instead of turning her and her boyfriend into the police, her mother chose to send Alexandria to spend the summer at her grandparents' farm in West Virginia. Alexandria hated her mother and tried to runaway with Joel, but that attempt was unsuccessful.

Alexandria (LEXI)is now in West Virginia for the summer. To her this is living hell because her grandfather is bound and determined to make her life miserable. She has to endure manual labor on the farm, but her grandmother's kindness is her saving grace.

Her grandfather assigns Landon to monitor Lexi and make sure she does what is expected of her. At first Lexi wants nothing to do with Landon. She is so caught up with Joel at this point that she couldn't realize a good thing if it hit her between the eyes. Landon is a sweet, down to earth, gorgeous country boy through and through. Little did Lexi know that Landon would be the one to show the city girl that her current life is not influenced by her own decisions. Lexi never realized that maybe she is the way she is due to Joel. Maybe what she viewed as happiness before really wasn't? Maybe she thought she was happy because she was making Joel happy? Will she realize that her life is not how she really planned for it to be?

This causes Lexi to really analyze her life and her decisions like never before. Lexi starts to question what really makes her happy and who brings out the best in her: Joel or Landon? No matter what she does she just can't let Joel go. He is her everything or at least she thought he was. She comes to the shocking realization that maybe Joel's feelings are not mutual and that maybe Landon is her right match.

A huge plot twist leaves Lexi numb. She immediately hates herself for the decisions she has made and feels that she needs to repent. This was the straw that broke the camel's back, so to speak. Sometimes people have to hit a wall running full force and get knocked on their a** to finally step back and do some soul searching, but that does not mean other people will not get hurt along the way. At this point Lexi doesn't know who she is or who she wants to be, all she can do is wallow in her self pity. She has completely shut out everyone in her life without thinking how it will affect the people who care about her the most. However there is good that does come from it. This situation allows Lexi to find herself, to slowly put the pieces of her life together. This does not mean that she is making all the right decisions, but it is a start. Unfortunately for Lexi it usually takes a tragedy to cause her to realize what she wants. Now bound and determined, she knows what she wants with her life and is dead set on getting it. She will not accept no as an answer and this journey of self discovery and happy endings all started by spending a summer in West Virginia...

While I had admitted earlier that Landon was cute,
nothing had prepared me to see him shirtless and wet in the pool. It was
obvious that he’d dived under right before I came out. His hair was dripping
wet, and water glistened as it ran down his chest and stomach. I knew I was standing
there with my mouth hanging open, but at that moment, I didn’t possess the
ability to close it.
