Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway: Perchance by Lila Felix

Welcome to my stop on the Perchance Blog Tour for Indie author Lila Felix.

About the Book:

Remi Harris has a plan. Graduate high school, go to college, become a history teacher, be self-sufficient unlike her mother who is a struggling single mom. And the word ‘boy’ has no place in her plan.

Cooper Neal has been sent to his estranged father’s house to spend his Senior year getting to know him. And maybe, just maybe, there will be some cute girls in the small town.

Cooper sees Remi and he falls hard. Remi sees Cooper and wonders if she can do both. The question is; will he ruin her plans, or will she let him be a part of them?


Perchance is a well written and sweet coming of age/first love story that tugs at your emotions from the first page.

I was struck by how bad Remi's life was when she volunteered to leave her mother and siblings to live with an aunt she'd never met. But, leaving was to help her mom-quite self-less for a seventeen-year-old. Her situation made me care for her right off (and count my blessings).

Cooper's situation wasn't nearly as bad as Remi's, but his history also drew me to him. And I liked him even more each time he showed that his feelings for Remi were so much more than physical attraction.

I liked the alternating points of view, and the almost journal-entry-like way much of the story was told.

There were a few instances where I was concerned that Remi and Cooper were going to completely succumb to their hormones, but both kept their parents' mistakes in mind and knew what they needed to do for a promising future.

Content: language and several kissing scenes.

About the Author:

Lila Felix lives in the south with her husband and three wild, wacky children. She loves to read and is addicted to all things zombie apocalypse related. She is also a huge fan of the Food Network and tries, sometimes disastrously, to replicate the recipes.

Lila is also the author of Emerge (available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble). To learn more about Lila and Perchance visit the other stops on the Blog Tour.

I asked Lila why she decided to go the Indie route, and this is what she had to say:

Honestly I never expected Emerge or Perchance to do well. I wanted to get them on Amazon just to say 'I did it.'  I really thought no one would like them or even buy them. So, sending it to a publisher to look at wasn't ever in my plans. And at this point I am happy to be Indie. I get to talk directly to my fans (What? I have fans?) and other Indies have been super supportive of me. I can't imagine it any other way.
