BLOG TOUR: Missing Dixie (Neon Dreams #3) by Caisey Quinn


 Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes, this is my stop on the MISSING DIXIE blog tour!


~ About the Book ~

Fighting for redemption…

I’ve lived most of my life in darkness, beneath the shadows of secrets and addictions. The last thing I ever wanted to do was hurt the only girl I’d ever loved—the one who brought me into the light. In my entire life I’d made one promise—a promise I’d intended to keep. I’ve broken that promise and now I have to live with the fallout. Dixie Lark hates me, and I have to tell her that I love her. I also have to tell her a truth that might destroy us forever.

Can she love me even if she can’t forgive me?

Learning to move on…

 
Gavin Garrison broke his promise to my brother and he broke my heart in the process. I
may never love anyone the way I’ve loved him, but at least I won’t spend my life wondering what if. We had our one night and he walked away. I’m finally beginning to move on when my brother’s wedding and a battle of the bands brings us back together.
 

Our band is getting a second chance, but I don’t know if I can give him one. How do you hand your heart back to the person who set it on fire once already?





~ My Thoughts ~

 

*I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.* 

Gritty, heart-wrenching, and intense, MISSING DIXIE broke my heart in the best way before piecing it all back together again. It was everything I hoped for for Dixie and Gavin and then some.

I loved these characters from book one and I knew Gavin's story was going to gut me, hence the reason I was afraid to read this book. Afraid whatever Gavin had done would be unfixable, unforgivable, and not even a little bit redeeming. What I didn't expect, was the hope it would leave me with.

Caisey Quinn has done an amazing job of showing the good, the bad and the ugly parts of addiction and the ripple effect it has on everyone, not just the addict. She balances light with darkness, so it's not too angsty and depressing, and not too perfect to be true. Best of all, she gives Dixie, Gavin, and Dallas the endings they deserve, and one that is sure to warm reader's hearts. It did mine. I ugly cried. Like Daryl Dixon from the Walking Dead but with more tears and snot. 




It wasn't pretty, but it was totally worth it.
Just like Gavin and Dixie.




~ Excerpt ~

 

DIXIE: 
The constant heaviness I carry in my heart lightens a little. I am for Dallas and Robyn. I’m excited to be a part of their big day and literally ecstatic about becoming an aunt to my future nephew. But . . . something about the anticipation of it all, the impending burden of necessary smiles and laughter in the midst of my complete and utter devastation about having to face Gavin Garrison for the first time in months . . . It’s like getting the worst news of your life on the brightest, sunniest, clearest day of the year.

I’m a walking, talking, living, breathing storm cloud waiting to burst and rain on everyone else’s parade.

But I won’t. Because I can’t.

I had my chance. My one night. And even a little more than that. “Wait for me, Bluebird,” he’d said.

Apparently I should’ve asked for the specific details of just how long he intended to make me wait.
