Undone by Rebecca Shea Blog Tour

Companion to "Unbreakable" -- Landon's story

**This book is a Contemporary Romance and contains mature subject matter.It is not intended for those under 17 years of age.**

I’ve found it’s easier to share my body but not my soul. I need no one, yet I crave her.

Self-assured and independent, she doesn’t need me—but she wants me, and undeniably I want her too. 

At war with myself as I battle the secrets of my past, I don’t know if I can allow her to see the darkest parts of me, the parts I’ve left untouched—undone.

As she chips away at the walls I’ve built for years, I fear those secrets will hold me hostage from love—forever.

“So you’re like a modern-day saint,” I say. ”Saving people, dogs...what else do you have up your sleeve?”

She laughs. “Ha! Hardly. I don’t save anybody or anything, I just like to help.”

“I like that about you, Reagan. I like that you like helping people—even dogs.” She picks up a small handful of sand and lets it run through her fingers. “And I’d like to see you again, but I’m not sure I could give you what you want or need.”

“How do you know what I want or need?”

“I guess I don’t. But what I do know is that I like talking to you.”

“You’re breaking your own rules, Champ. You’ve seen me twice—yesterday and today. You said it yourself you don’t see someone more than once.”

“Ah, you’re wrong. I don’t sleep with them more than once, not see them more than once.”

“Oh, that’s right; as long as we don’t sleep together, we can be friends—hang out, and see each other again and again,” she says sarcastically. Turning toward me, she leans in too close, her nose pressed against the side of my face. I can feel her lips hovering just next to my ear. “But what happens when one of us wants more?” she whispers. “Because one of us will, it’s inevitable. What happens then? You fuck me and leave me—never see me again?”

I turn to meet her crisp blue eyes. She’s leaning in to me—staring at me.

“Do you want to fuck me, Reagan?”

“Not if I can’t see you again—no.”

We are so excited to have Landon come in to BBRs to answer some questions. He is just swoon worthy and ah-mah-zing!

I loved you in Unbreakable I wanted to kill Rebecca for making me try to choose between you and Gabe.
I just wanted to let you know *winks* Just an FYI I really hate spoilers even in interviews because I REALLY want people to enjoy your book like I did. So I am sorry if these questions are not to intrusive.  

Aw, thank you *smiles smugly at your wink*. Ask away. I’ll do my best to answer without giving away too much of the story. I do reserve the right to plead the fifth, if I must though *clears throat and grins*.

1. Tell me how you felt knowing you got your own story?
*rubs hand over chin while thinking* I’m not going to say I was all that fond of it at first. I’m not a very public person, and my background is nothing to be proud of. When Rebecca was contemplating this story, we went back and forth…but I’m glad she convinced me to tell it. So many people are ashamed of things in their lives that they are not responsible for, or let their past dictate their present and their future. Rebecca felt that by telling my story, not only could I help myself move forward, but maybe help someone else 
who’s had a similar experience. Just knowing that my story might help one person, that was all the convincing I needed.

2. Can you tell us what to expect from your story?
*Smirks* One hulluva rollercoaster ride.

3. I was a little heartbroken for you with that whole situation with Jessica. How did that feel going through all of that?
That was not an easy time for me. I never expected, or wanted to feel anything for her. So it really caught me off guard when there was something more there. I cared for Jessica, and as we grew closer, I knew I wasn’t who she was in love with. I feel like where we left things was for the best. She’s happy, I’m happy, it’s a win win. I just saw her not to long ago, you’ll see what happens in Unforgiven, Lindsay’s story. It was the first time we’ve talked since she drove away that day.

4. If you could have changed anything at all with Jessica would you and why or why not?
Yes and No. I would have absolutely done anything to take away what she experienced before she came to California. And No, because even a little broken, she was perfect. Gabe is a very lucky man.

5. In Unbreakable you kind of came off as an asshole, a hot one but still an a-hole. Do you think you have changed from that story to now?
*smiles* I’d like to think I’ve changed. I know I’m not bedding women, except for one very beautiful brunette, and I think I’m more open-minded now. 
Reagan has taught me a lot about myself, including the need to care about others, and let people in—family, friends, etc. So yeah, I guess I’ve changed.

6. You’re a hot ass cop (and ummm yeah you can totes use those handcuffs on me just saying) who was a bit of a slut. Did you really believe that you would never settle down?
*rakes hands over face and leans down to rest his elbows on his knees* I think the first glimpse I had of ever wanting to settle down was with Jess. I had this instinctive need to protect her. Maybe that came from my upbringing and how I had to take care of Lindsay, I don’t know. Something happened there. But when Jess left, I was content with a different woman every time. It was less complicated—but then you realize you’re missing out on something on a much deeper level. I guess, it was always there inside me, I just took the easy road for so long, that you don’t look to the hard road and find any appeal in it…until you have to make a choice. *smiles* I’m glad with my choice.

7. Your story is very emotional, I cried a few times. Are there time you ever step back and think “fuck I can’t believe this is really my life?” If so how do you channel all that emotion?
Yes. There are still days I don’t believe I deserve some of things I have. Lindsay and I had a really shitty upbringing and I channeled a lot of that anger into being destructive with myself. I can’t say I’m proud of my past philandering, but Reagan’s teaching me to leave the past in the past. Deal 
with it, but move forward. We cant change the past, we can only learn from it. *shrugs*

8. I love Reagan, I think she is a breath of fresh air. How is she? 
Perfect. She’s perfect. She is everything I never knew I wanted or needed. I love her sassy mouth. I love that’s she’s not afraid to tell me ‘no’. I love everything about her. Matt claims she carry’s my nuts around in her purse, jackass.

9. I also enjoyed the relationship between you and Lindsay. The banter and how close you are. Can you give us an update on Lindsay?
*sighs*. Things are tough right now. I don’t know how much I should say because she’s dealing with some serious shit right now and that’s her story to tell, not mine. I love my sister unconditionally and will always support her every decision, even the bad ones. That’s all I can really say.

Lightening Round—do you prefer:

Snow or rain? Both.

Handcuffs or zip ties? Really? Cuffs *smirks*

Chocolate or whipped cream? Depends what I’m putting it on *BIG GRIN*

Car or Motorcycle? Both. Can’t choose.

Football or Basketball? Football. Hands down.

Naughty Nurse or French Maid? Deviant Doctor *wets lips*

Heels or no shoes? Bare. Everything bare. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and chatting with us. We appreciate you coming by.

Thanks for having me!

It is hard at times to read a sequel in a series. Sometimes I think man I loved the first book so much I do not want to be disappointed. Wellllll, this is not that book. I was so excited that he was getting a book. In Unbreakable, when I met him I did not want to love him. I wanted Gabe, I was stuck on Gabe but slowly Landon permeated my heart and soul. He sank in there deep and his hooks would never be torn away.

When I found out about this book I was excited. I wanted him to be able to find that girl that made him open up and love. This book took me on a roller coaster. I thought Unbreakable put me through feels, but this book...This book made me cry ugly. The feels came out so hard I couldn't even take it. Rebecca has a way of writing that makes your heart beg for more after it has been torn apart.

Reagan, oh this woman. I loved her. She is perfect for Landon. She helps build him up. She is feisty and compliments him well. Landon is such a slut that Reagan is refreshing. Of course there is angst and drama which keep me stuck in the pages (well kindle) of this book. 

This story is one of love and redemption. It shows that when you are willing to open your heart you can overcome all obstacles. I also enjoyed Landon and his little sister Lindsay relationship/story. This book had everything I enjoy in a book and then some. Rebecca has created characters that are so close to my heart that I cannot and will not forget about these stories anytime soon. 

I gave this book 
4.5/5 hearts
