ONE TINY LIE by K.A.Tucker Paperback Feature Tour

I am super SUPER excited to be able to be a part of this Feature Tour for ONE TINY LIE by K.A. Tucker.  A 2013 Top Read for me, this book blew me away....If you want to know how much, you can catch my review here.  But, now ONE TINY LIE is releasing in paperback and for those of you who love the feel of a book in your hand, then this is your chance...Scroll down and see my interview with the amazing heroine of this book, Livie, plus all the other important info needed.  ANNNND....make sure you enter the fabulous giveaway at the end....
Thanks for stopping by...

Livie has always been the stable one of the two Cleary sisters, handling her parents' tragic death and Kacey's self-destructive phase with strength and maturity. But underneath that exterior is a little girl hanging onto the last words her father ever spoke to her. “Make me proud,” he had said. She promised she would...and she’s done her best over the past seven years with every choice, with every word, with every action.
Livie walks into Princeton with a solid plan, and she’s dead set on delivering on it: Rock her classes, set herself up for medical school, and meet a good, respectable guy that she’s going to someday marry. What isn’t part of her plan are Jell-O shots, a lovable, party animal roommate she can’t say ‘no’ to, and Ashton, the gorgeous captain of the men’s rowing team. Definitely him. He’s an arrogant ass who makes Livie’s usually non-existent temper flare and everything she doesn’t want in a guy. Worse, he’s best friends and roommates with Connor, who happens to fits Livie’s criteria perfectly. So why does she keep thinking about Ashton?
As Livie finds herself facing mediocre grades, career aspirations she no longer thinks she can handle, and feelings for Ashton that she shouldn’t have, she’s forced to let go of her last promise to her father and, with it, the only identity that she knows.

Kat: Good day everyone!! Welcome to the blog...Today we have the amazing Livie Cleary from the books Ten Tiny Breaths and One Tiny Lie...
I am very excited she has agreed to answer a few questions for us..So, lets get started...
Hi Livie and, for those who haven’t met you yet, can you tell us a little about yourself?
Livie: I am THE Kacey Cleary’s younger, yet more mature sister, Olivia. Everyone calls me Livie. Except for Ashton. He calls me Irish.
Kat: *chuckles* Great intro...What type of music do you like to listen to? Favorite song at the moment?  Favorite band?  
Livie: I like just about everything. Living with Storm for three years has got me hooked on classic rock though. I’m still not okay with it first thing in the morning. I guess old habits die hard for her.
Kat: I can only imagine how that would be in the morning. What do you do on the weekends?
Livie: Well, I *should* be busy doing school work, seeing as I’m at Princeton but my bad influence of a roommate, Reagan, has managed to introduce me to a whole new life that I’m not accustomed to: partying and boys. Both are as highly distracting as I anticipated them to be. I also volunteer at the Children’s Hospital in NYC on Saturdays. Dr. Stayner helped get me set up with this highly coveted spot. It’ll be great for my application to medical school after I’m finished my undergrad.
Kat: Well, one does need a healthy balance of work and PLAY, hehehehe!!! What is it like having Kacey as a sister? 
Livie: I love my sister and I would never say anything bad about her but she can be a handful. Infuriating at times, even a thousand miles away.  But, I know she always has my best interests at heart. Maybe that’s why I always forgive her. Or maybe I’m just a sucker.
Kat: Awwww...Nothing like a sister bond.  What can you tell us about Dr. Stayner?  
Livie: Dr. Stayner is… Dr. Stayner. How do you describe a therapist like him? You really can’t. I don’t know how he still has his license sometimes and yet the man is highly intuitive. It just takes an open mind and time to see it. He’s still bound to get himself into trouble with the State.
Kat: HA!! Yeah,Dr. Stayner has some amazing insight... What were your first thoughts of Ashton?  
Livie: Probably the same thoughts as everyone else. What. An.  Ass. And I’m not talking about his physical attribute (though I could also talk about that quite easily.) I’ve never met someone as cocky as Ashton Henley.  It took me a long time to warm up to him but when I did… well, you saw what happened.
Kat:   Oh yes...We saw what happened *wink, wink* What would be your top two books to read? Why?
Livie:   Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables.  I love the lives depicted in both of these stories. I’m also a hopeless romantic (that’s probably why I helped Trent and Kacey reconnect, even after all that had transpired between them.)
Kat: Awesome classic books...Where is one place you would like to travel to?  Why?
Livie:   I’ve never been anywhere but Grand Rapids and Miami and the states in between so I’m open to anywhere.  I think I’d love Italy. Or France. Or Greece. Europe, in general. Or Asia. I really should get some travelling in.
Kat: Oh need to do some traveling...But definitely some great places on there.  Several on my to-visit list as well.  What is your favorite type of food?  
Livie: Well, it’s DEFINITELY NOT cheesecake anymore… *sighs*  I’m easy, though I’ve found a new fondness for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
Kat: Can't go wrong with Bem & Jerry's ice cream, well any ice cream for that matter. Any regrets that you have?
Livie:  I’m supposed to live with no regrets, right? That’s what this thing called life is about, isn’t it?
Kat: True, but it is hard majority of the time...If you could impart any wisdom on the world, what would that be and why?
Livie:  Humans make mistakes and we’re all human. It’s always okay, as long as you learn from them.
Fantastic words of wisdom and Wow...those are some awesome answers and I want to say a special THANKS to Livie for answering my questions!!!

  1. Angst, drama (the build-up of a monumental love story) and finally, HEA

  2. I find these answers very interesting! I look for a realistic portrayal of what life is like for someone in their early twenties. Sure, that includes a little bit of angst and romance but too much and I start thinking about giving up on New Adult! I read Ten Tiny Breaths and thought it was a good balance and a great read!

  3. i Love romance, drama an happy ever after <3

  4. Sexy, sexy times! Maybe a love interest between the girl and her brother's best friend... Or her best friend's brother..

  5. I love a good HEA. (: love triangles are also a favorite

  6. A lot of New Adult books didn't work for me. But One Tiny Lie is one of my favorites! Simply amazing! I guess I'm looking for a story that would surprise me; I want something different. I want to feel the chemistry, the drama, the life beyond the pages, and that the story should be something I could read all over again. :)

  7. I love romance, love triangles, some tears, turning the pages type! Thank you for the amazing giveaway!

  8. These books sound amazing! Love discovering a new author to read.
