Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway: Catching Liam by Sophia Bleu

Catching Liam by Sophia Bleu
Publication date:  Summer 2013 
Genre: New Adult Contemporary

Twenty-one year-old Jillian Nichols only has one rule when it comes to boys: catch and release. Boy-catching isn't just a game for Jillian and her friends, it's a lifestyle. After all, boys might be good for a dance or a drink and certainly a little under-cover action of the scandalous variety, but expect much else and you're bound for heart ache.

So when her best friends and fellow boy catchers start dropping like flies junior year, Jillian is determined to keep boys in her bedroom and out of her heart. Until she meets Liam McAvoy, the kind of guy that sticks around to make waffles and who can't—or perhaps won't—take a hint. 

Study abroad student Liam doesn't want to be another notch on Jillian's bedpost. Actually he has much more interesting ideas for Jillian and her bedposts, but his student visa's set expiration date means he can't promise her forever. That doesn't mean he's going to walk away from the challenge of discovering why Jillian is hell-bent at keeping people at a distance. 

Before long, neither is sure who is catching who—or if they're playing for keeps. Jillian knows one thing though: falling in love will not only break the only rule of boy-catching, it could also break her heart.


Sophia Bleu is a secret identity where I can write about fantasies and falling in love and all the smexiness in between.  In real life, I'm likely catching a plane, chasing kids, or making out with the love of my life—all 6 ft 3 inches of hotness that he is.  Life is pretty good.

My Review

Ah, the one night stand that just won't go away. It worked for Grey's Anatomy and it definitely works for Catching Liam. Waking up to waffles and a Scottish accent after an incredible one night stand and she wants him to go?!?!?!? Uhm....NO! 

Without a doubt my favorite part of this book is the characters. Even though I often want to smack Jillian in the back of her head I still really liked her character. She is trying really hard to protect herself and she uses sarcasm to do this, luckily I adore sarcasm. Do to a medical condition Jillian is terrified of relationships and tries to hide her condition from everyone except her two best friends. 

Liam is a super sexy Scottish student that is in the States for a year of University. Liam is my absolute favorite character of Catching Liam. He is sweet and has decided after a one night stand with Jullian that she is the girl for him. Slowly he convinces Jullian that they belong together. Liam realizes that Jullian is keeping something from him he just can't figure out what but he is determined to find out what secrets she is keeping from him. 

Catching Liam is an easy, sweet, romantic story, and I will definitely be reading Jullian's best friend Jesse's book this fall.
