Blog Tour - Where Sea Meets Sky by Karina Halle

Title: Where Sea Meets Sky
Author: Karina Halle
 Publisher: Atria Books
Release Date: March 31, 2015

A new adult novel that perfectly captures the existential angst of your early twenties with raw wit, fresh insight, and true feeling from a critically adored USA TODAY bestselling author.

Joshua Miles has spent his early twenties spinning his wheels. Working dead-end jobs and living at home has left him exhausted and uninspired, with little energy to pursue his passion for graphic art. Until he meets Gemma Henare, a vivacious out-of-towner from New Zealand. What begins as a one-night stand soon becomes a turning point for Josh. He can’t get Gemma out of his head, even after she has left for home, and finds himself throwing caution to the wind for the first time in his life.

It’s not long before Josh is headed to New Zealand with only a backpack, some cash, and Gemma’s name to go on. But when he finally tracks her down, he finds his adventure is only just beginning. Equally infatuated, Gemma leads him on a whirlwind tour across the beautiful country, opening Josh up to life, lust, love, and all the messy heartache in between. Because, when love drags you somewhere, it might never let go—even when you know you have to say goodbye.

Oh baby! This book starts out HOT right from the get go! We have the meet cute at a Halloween party, the instant chemistry and then BAM! Orgasms for everyone! I was squirming in my seat! Where Sea Meets Sky is Karina Halle's newest New Adult offering and if you're a fan of the genre get ready to One-Click this one stat!

Josh and Gemma have an epic one night stand she leaves to return to her home in New Zealand the next day. Neither can forget the other. So Josh travels to New Zealand, not to track Gemma down, but for the experience. Well traveled Gemma inspired him to get out in the world. Of course they meet again, or this wouldn't be a romance. Only Josh wasn't planning on being the third wheel when he finds out Gemma is seeing someone else.

Set in Canada and New Zealand, this book is totally amazing. Karina's lush descriptions of the landscape really transport the reader into each and every scene. And if I had the funds and was single, I'd be making a trip there myself. It sounds stunning!

There is a bit of a love triangle element in this one, which I loved! It really ramped up the angst factor and it totally gave me the feels! This is such an amazingly written book. If you've read Love in English or Love in Spanish, you're going to love this because we get little snippets of Vera and Mateo. FYI, Josh is Vera's brother. But no, you don't need to read those two books before this one, Where Sea Meets Sky is totally a standalone. No cliffhanger.
