Release Day, Review & Giveaway - Capturing Peace by Molly McAdams

Molly McAdams has a new book out!!! I'm sure there's no need to tell you how excited I am about it. I've got a review and a couple of giveaways for you, so be sure to read all the way through to see everything!
Coen Steele has spent the last five years serving his country. Now that he's back, he's finally ready to leave behind the chaos of the battlefield and pursue his lifelong dream. What he wasn't expecting was the feisty sister of one of his battle buddies—who has made it obvious that she wants nothing to do with him—to intrigue him in a way no woman has before.

Reagan Hudson's life changed in the blink of an eye six years ago when she found out she was pregnant and on her own. Since then, Reagan has vowed never to let another man into her life so that no one can walk out on her, or her son, again. But the more she runs into her brother's hot and mysterious friend, the more he sparks something in her that she promised herself she wouldn't feel again.

Can two people with everything to lose allow themselves to finally capture the love they both deserve?

After a devastating break up with her high school love, Reagan has spent the last six years raising her son, Parker, and not letting anyone get close to them for fear of being hurt. Coen has just gotten out of the military and is settling into civilian life and pursuing his dream of being a professional photographer, while dealing with the emotional demons that haunt him from his time while serving.
Emotional. Exhilarating. Beautiful. Heartbreaking. Those are just a few words I would choose to describe Capturing Peace. I really don’t know how Molly does it (and if you’re reading this Molly, I freakin’ love you!). Every emotion that Coen, Reagan, Parker and the others felt just flew right off the pages– every laugh, every cry, every heartbreak. It was as if I were experiencing it right along with them. Coen - haunted, talented, fascinating. Reagan – fierce, loyal, determined to protect her son. I just can’t even tell you how much I loved their story. You will have to experience it for yourself, but I will tell you that you won’t be disappointed.

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry four-legged daughters. When she's not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach … which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm ... or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.

  1. Reading is definitely how I find my peace. :)

  2. I find peace in a cup of coffee, porch swing, and a good book. It is the one place where I can literally forget everything and leap into the characters lives...pure bliss

  3. spend a little time meditating, if that doesn't work, I read

  4. Reading or shopping (when I have some money) is how I find my peace.

  5. The biggest thing is reading. I can disappear into a book and forget everything else going on around me. Sometimes, a glass of wine and some good music does the trick also.

  6. Hot Tea, my book and peace and quiet! This house is always loud between kids and the dogs so as soon as everyone is down it is my time!

  7. Reading or walking my dog is the way I find peace. We just walk around the neighborhood and enjoy the sights and sounds. It takes my mind away from what's stressing me out at the time.

  8. Reading bu the beach or with a nice view.. but sometimes when I run
