Harder Blog Tour Dream Cast & Review

By: Robin York
Caroline & West #2

Caroline still dreams about West. His warm skin, his taut muscles, his hand sliding down her stomach. Then she wakes up and she’s back to reality: West is gone. And before he left, he broke her heart.

Then, out of the blue, West calls in crisis. A tragedy has hit his family—a family that’s already a fractured mess. Caroline knows what she has to do. Without discussion, without stopping to think, she’s on a plane, flying to his side to support him in any way he needs.

They’re together again, but things are totally different. West looks edgy, angry at the world. Caroline doesn’t fit in. She should be back in Iowa, finalizing her civil suit against the ex-boyfriend who posted their explicit pictures on a revenge porn website. But here she is. Deeply into West, wrapped up in him, in love with him. Still

They fought the odds once. Losing each other was hard. But finding their way back to each other couldn’t be harder.

As if Deeper didn't just blow everyone mind here we go yet again. Harder proved to be just about everything that I hoped for and more. Caroline and West continue their adventure in love. With every obstacle and reward this roller coaster includes the exact same thrilling and captivating story line that absorbed me into the debut. The heartache at the conclusion of Deeper was nothing compared to the punch that Harder has hidden in it's pages. This roller coaster is complete with it's twists and turns, occasionally throwing you in reverse, only to spin and continue full speed ahead faster than ever before. The complexity and detail creates a story that could virtually run on reel. Not a moment of this story leaves you perplexed or uncertain, because the details are so complete readers will know the characters inside and out. Robin York is amazingly talented, and one of my favorites. This series has been an absolute pleasure, and always leaves me ready for more. The Carolyn and West series is one that will walk you through the innocent start of falling in love, and carry you through dark and damaged side of unstoppable devotion and true love no matter the cost. Harder is powerful and intense leaving me question the validity in saying that it is entertaining; I think overpowering and consumed would be far better description of the story that I just had the pleasure of reading and experiencing. ~BookWhisperer Reviewer Jax~
So last, but not least this is one of my favorite things to do. Posting a dream cast is great, because I really get the chance to see how the authors image of their own characters differ from what I have gathered reading the story. Check out Robin York's picks below. 

Dream Cast for Harder

Hello! Thanks for inviting me to share my dream cast for Harder, the second (and last) book in my two-novel Caroline and West series.

First up, I picked Nicholas Hoult for the novel’s hero, West. Hoult can look a lot of different ways depending on how his hair is, how he’s dressed, etc., and not all of them remind me of West, but he’s got the eyebrows and the interesting face, and he’s very West-like in these photos:

And who’s a better heroine for Hoult than Teresa Palmer? No one, that’s what I say. But the Teresa Palmer who looks like my heroine, Caroline, isn’t the glamorous blond one. Caroline’s not even blond, actually. (I kind of doubt Palmer is, either.) The Palmer I love is the more natural, messy one, as in these pictures:

Perfect, right?

Now, just for fun, here’s our supporting cast. West’s best friend, Krishna, played by Rajiv Surendra:

And Caroline’s best friend, Bridget, played by this adorable redhead whose name I can’t find, but put her in track pants and she is perfect.

There you have it!
