Blindsided... Oh, yeah!

Happy Monday Everyone!
I am so excited to be part of Kyra Lennon's blog tour today!
See, this little beauty?
It's the new book, BLINDSIDED, by Kyra Lennon and it is absolutely SPECTACULAR! I just love how Kyra writes, and she is an absolute romantic! Want to hear the blurb? I thought so!

After a successful first soccer season in L.A, Jesse Shaw heads to London with his best buddy, Hunter, but his world is turned upside down when a dangerous prank threatens his career and his blossoming relationship with Hunter’s cousin, Isabelle.

Isabelle Mills lives in Notting Hill with her parents and her twin sister, Georgia. When she finds out her cousin is coming to stay, along with his famous soccer player friend, her first instinct is to hibernate until they’ve gone. However, once she meets Jesse, everything changes. He’s everything she ever wanted, but with so many obstacles in their path, can she really risk putting her heart on the line?

Brilliant, right!
Well, as part of Kyra's blog tour, I have a fun interview with one of her characters, Izzy, today! I adore Izzy! Check out the questions to see why:

Hello Izzy! I'm so excited to interview you today!
1. I'd love to get to know you a little better. Briefly tell us a little about yourself and your interests.
It’s lovely to meet you, Leigh! Well … I’m eighteen years old, and I live in London with my parents and my twin sister, Georgia. I’m studying photography, among other things, at college but photography is my favourite. Taking photos is one of my main hobbies, besides spending time with my sister and my best friend, Willow.

2. What changed for you after you met Jesse?
*blushes* Everything! I used to be very shy. Well, I’m still shy, but Jesse makes me feel more confident. I don’t feel afraid to tell him whatever’s on my mind because I know he’ll never laugh at me, or make me feel like an idiot.

3. When was the first time you realized you liked him? Did you try to let him know you liked him, or try to play it off?
I realized I liked him as soon as I saw him again. You see, I met him a long time ago, when we were kids, but he looks a lot different now! I didn’t want him to know I liked him at first because I couldn’t imagine why a famous footballer would notice a quiet, plain girl like me. Besides, he lives too far away for us to really be together. 

4. What are three of your favourite things, besides Jesse, of course!
Aww, I really can’t choose Jesse as one of them? :p Okay, as I mentioned above, photography is my absolute favourite thing to do. When it comes to material things, I love, love, LOVE the dress Georgia chose for me for our first night out with Jesse and Hunter. ;) It holds some special memories. My other favourite thing is actually a place. My bedroom. I’m not much of a people person, so it feels really good to hide myself away there and relax at the end of the day. I have these big squishy cushions on my bed to snuggle up to, and to make the place more cozy!

5. What is your favourite holiday, and why?
Easy! Christmas is the best holiday ever! Willow says Halloween is the best, but it isn’t as romantic as Christmas. I think that’s why I like it so much. It feels romantic.

Are you dying to read it? You ought to be! Make sure this little baby is on your Christmas list. It's the perfect book to curl up with this holiday season - and every other season that comes along afterward!

And a little about the author, Kyra Lennon:
Author Bio:
Kyra Lennon was born on the South coast of England, and to this day, still lives by the sea. After years spent working in retail, where she met enough versatile characters to write hundreds of books, she finally took the plunge and quit her day job. Kyra's debut novel, Game On, was released in July 2012. While fiction writing has always been her passion, she also has numerous articles on a variety of topics published on prolific websites.

My favorite holiday is the fourth of July. I love it because it's summertime, and everyone is having fun and you don't have to deal with huge lines at the stores.

Hey Leigh...did Roxanne get a hold of you? I gave her your contact info and she says you haven't responded.
