Preservation by Rachael Wade blog tour

Preservation On Tour!

A sexy, arrogant, playboy professor. A stubborn, independent, aspiring writer. Both masters at the art of sabotage. Let the games begin. Available 5/25 in print and e-book from Amazon and print from Barnes and Noble.

· Song: Why Do You Love Me
· Artist: Garbage
· Tour Date: 5/22
· Venue: Downtown Seattle, Kate’s apartment
· Anthem:  

I'm no barbie doll
I'm not your baby girl
I've done ugly things and I have made mistakes
And I am not as pretty as those girls in magazines
I am rotten to my core if they're to be believed
So what if I'm no baby bird hanging upon your every word?
Nothing ever smells of roses that rises out of mud

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me, it's driving me crazy
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me, it's driving me crazy

Fear is sabotage’s sweetest weapon. 

Kate has no time for meaningless romantic charades, and definitely no time for hot college professors who are full of themselves and smitten with her. Constantly battling eviction notices, tuition she can’t afford, and a sick, dependent mother, the last thing she needs is to be distracted with someone else’s complicated baggage. 

When she stumbles into Ryan Campbell’s creative writing class, he is only “Mr. Campbell” to her, until Ryan finds himself captivated by her writing and she is forced to face their mutual attraction. His cocky know-it-all syndrome is enough to send her running in the other direction, and his posse of female admirers and playboy reputation are enough to squander any odds in her favor. 

But underneath Ryan’s abrasive facade is something to behold, and she can’t stay away for long. Ryan and Kate must decide who they’re willing to become and fight against their former selves if they want to make things work. That’s if academia, vicious vixens, old skeletons, and their own mastery at self-destruction don’t pummel their efforts first.

My Thoughts on Preservation:
Preservation is Rachael Wade's best book yet. Out of all the books I've read this year, this one has been my favorite by far. I loved how well the story line flowed. There were no plot holes, spelling errors, grammar errors, or other inconsistencies. I thought it was going to take me a while to read since it's an adult book and I typically read young adult books. However, the story absolutely captivated me and I kept turning pages late at night wanting to know what happened next. I finished it in a little less than twenty-four hours. My favorite character was Carter. Even though he was in love with Kate, the main character, he still stuck by her side as her best friend when she fell in love with someone else. I also liked his snarky attitude. He kept me laughing all throughout the book. I liked the main character, Kate. Her commitment phobic nature got a little annoying at times, but it wasn't too bad. Ryan, the main male character, kind of seemed like a complete jerk at first. I thought I was going to hate him, but I liked him by the middle of the book. This was the author's first contemporary romance novel, and it was mesmerizing. I will definitely read more of her adult contemporary novels in the future. However, due to the language and sex scenes, I would recommend this to readers eighteen and older. I can't recommend this book enough to everyone old enough to read it.

I give Preservation: 5/5.


  1. Thank you, Kayla! I am trying to share on FB and it's not letting me post anything, I have no idea what's going on! As soon as it works, I'll have it up.

    Thanks again (as always!) for your time and support.


  2. Thanks Rachael for sending me the book to review, and for letting me be a part of the blog tour. :)
