Battle of the Brains by Michelle Graves


~~~BOOK TOUR REVIEW~~~
The Battle of the Brains by Michelle Graves
Synopsis
Maggie Moore is leaving small-town south Georgia behind to embrace adulthood on her own in big-city Atlanta.
Finding inspiration in the unique people she’s met covering obscure sporting events, Maggie decides it’s time to fill her life with adventure – just as soon as she figures out how to cut ties with good ol’ Murphy, and his pesky laws, once and for all.
Naturally, the universe has different plans.
Before she even sets out to cover her next big story, Maggie is bombarded with old wounds and new insecurities, forcing her to choose between the reality in front of her and the promise of a dream just out of reach.
Channeling the hard-fought lessons of her Dad, Maggie struggles against the seemingly insurmountable force that is her troublesome partner, learning the hard way that things are never as easy as you think they’ll be.

I recieved an ARC of Battle of the Brains in exchange for an honest review.
I absolutely loved it! Couldn't put it down!
Maggie Moore is trying her hand at adulting. Moving out on her own for the first time and trying to start a new relationship with the sweet and sexy Deacon. Only trouble with that is that he is currently hiking the Appalachian Trail and they only have email and limited phone calls to keep them.
As soon as she starts to feel good about things, back into her life walks, John. The man she has vowed to stay far away from, unfortunately they work together.
Michelle Graves does a great job of balancing the angst and hilarity to keep you glued to your e-reader. I recommend you read the other books since this one picks up right where the last one leaves off. I promise you will not be disappointed. Maggie Moore is absolutely hilarious and i cannot get enough of her shenanigans!

Excerpt:
Why are you here? What is so important it couldn’t wait until morning?”
“I have some news for you, and these.” John handed me a wrapped box and a bouquet of flowers. I’m sure my jaw came unhinged from the shock; maybe it needed to be wired shut again. No, one broken jaw was enough. I just needed to pull myself together. I didn’t do surprises well, and John bringing me flowers felt wrong. What was he playing at?
“What are those?”
“Flowers,” John shrugged.
“I know they are flowers, but why are they flowers?”
“Because that’s what they grew up to be?” John looked at me as though I’d lost my mind.
“Stop playing dumb. Why are you bringing me flowers?” I eyed them warily. So what if they were beautiful. They were probably dipped in poison, or cursed, or dipped in a poisonous curse. They weren’t to be trusted, these daisies of doom.
“Well, they’re supposed to be a house warming present. Could you just take them and stop making this a thing.” John’s reaction was confusing. Typically he’d take any chance he could to berate and belittle me, but now he seemed uncomfortable, if not nervous.
About the Author

When she is not writing away trying to purge her mind of yapping characters she can be found entertaining her daughter, attempting to craft (whilst trying not to injure herself with the glue gun), baking yummy treats, or reading. She admits to having a restless spirit and forces her family to go out on adventures whenever possible. They lovingly play along.
