100 Proof Stud by A.J. Lape Blog Tour {Review + Giveaway}

Title: 100 Proof Stud
Author: AJ Lape      
Genre: YA Mystery, Thriller, Humor, Mystery Series Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours

Sometimes life smacks you right in the kisser with a whole lot of ohhhh craaaaap.
Just ask Darcy Walker.
100 Proof Stud picks up four months after No Brainer's cliffhanger ending, and Darcy discovers the aftermath pales in comparison to the crisis her heart is in. All of a sudden it's raining men, and this teenage heroine’s personal life turns her inside out. 
Before she can sort out her feelings, she chases a spray-painting vandal and stumbles upon a case of identity theft right in her own backyard. Darcy jumps into the fray headfirst to prove she can hang with the big boys. 
But it’s not just to hang…nope, she’s chasing reward money.
Tapping her band of misfit brothers for help, she turns Valley upside down trying to unearth the criminals. Problem is, the cloak and dagger goes high-octane, and she raises the bar on “crazy" in the process.
Bullets ring out…dead bodies appear…and Darcy rubs shoulders with the ultimate sociopath. In the midst of murder and mayhem, will she finally follow her heart or build a fortress of lies around it? Will she even get the chance?

[Insert random ramblings about Dylan here: Gorgeous, athletic, hot bod,knows how to love, smart, DIMPLES, tall, and guy I'd like to meet. :D Oh how I love Dylan let me count the ways. lol but seriously I wish this guy existed, I would be all over that like a bowl of ice cream. I love his alphaness and he would give alpha wolves a run for their money. I could go on forever how amazing he is, but I'll let you figure out that yourselves. and you can think my best friend Snyder for putting insert things about Dylan. All I did was gush about him. So yeah Tiffany out ] LOL ;)

BEWARE READER! This book contains guns (not the water guns), Testosterone, Lots of flirting, Danger at every turn, and DYLAN!!!!!!!!! *Swoons*

Darcy never seems to disappoint me. I never know what to expect and I love her for it. I don’t think I’ve ever loved a character more. I feel connected to the characters in this book like no other. A.J. Lape knows how to make you love someone and hate someone. I quote frankly think she is a genius. :D Let’s get back to the book shall we lol

100 Proof Stud was everything I imagined it to be! There was mystery, bone chilling creeper men, and hot guys….ok make that one hot guy with a semi hot guy on the side (Ben). I don’t know how she gets into the things she does, but she has a knack at finding out the truth. And I swear I get the paranormal vibe from this book, like with Ben and the Ouija board. That was some freaky stuff! You will just have to read the book for yourself to find out what I’m talking about. I feel like I should say more. I was practically read half the book to my best friend; she was over while I was reading it. I was laughing at practically everything. Darcy does not have a serious bone in her body and I freakin love it. She is the sweetest girl ever, but if you mess with one of her friends you better watch out. Oh and her friend Justice was awesome and I just loved Rudi. She was the cutest little thing and I wish she was more confident in her self. OH MY GOSH I have not talked about Dylan!!!!!! I must be on something, seriously. Dylan is a guy that you wish you had. He may have a protective streak and be all alpha male, but he is ALL lover. I practically swoon every time he and Darcy are together. They are like moths to a flame. Why does this remind of an Edmund Spenser poem I read? It is sonnet 30 from Amoretti and it states “How comes it then that this her cold so great / Is not dissolved through my so hot desire, / But harder grows the more I her entreat?” Darcy inst cold to him, but she doesn’t really encourage him either….well she does but doesn’t. And well Dylan he is hot for the Darcy. LOL he just gets hotter for her the more she tries to pull away. ;) But yeah this book rocked my socks off. This is seriously one of the best books ever and I will forever remember everything in it. Darcy like I’ve probably said in a lot of my other reviews has a special place in my heart. I can’t get enough of her crazyness! It is always a crazy adventure and there is always always the possibility that she won’t make it out alive. Like I said the whole thing is a mystery and I freaking love that A.J. can keep you guessing till the very end! And then WHAM BAM Out comes all the dirty little secrets. I feel exhausted after reading it but fully sated as well. Darcy can about give me a heart attack at times. I feel for Murphy. Lol He is the best by the way. He gets the best dad ever award. I’m totally rambling right now. This book was just too good for words. Just take my word for it and buy it! You will not be dissatisfied.

Overall: 100 Proof Stud was action-packed, laughs danger in the face, highly addicting, and just plan ole amazing! This is what you call the whole package. If you want it, 100 Proof Stud has it. Darcy is all verb and you better buckle your seat belt because you are about to go on a wild and slightly crazy ride.

It has spent numerous weeks in the Top 100 in Mystery Series and Teens, Mysteries & Thrillers Categories as well as being one of the Top Rated in its genre. A self-proclaimed neurotic and troublemaker at heart, a perfect day for A. J. consists of writing, watching her kids play sports, drinking Coke, then lounging in her pajamas by 8PM.
She lives in Cincinnati with her husband, two feministic daughters, an ADD dog, a spoiled hamster, and an unapologetic and unrepentant addiction to Coca-Cola, with a lifelong love affair with bacon.  She studied English, Journalism, and Political Science at Morehead State University and left the business world when her daughters were born.  Her love for suspense and a good story was born from watching Mystery Science Theater with her sister during childhood.  That and any B movie with comedic undertones they could get their hands on.

Thirteen things you didn't know about AJ Lape
AKA - Ada Miracle Lape
1. I can dislocate my left shoulder on command.
2. My favorite movie is It's a Wonderful Life...cry like a baby when George Bailey starts yelling, "I want to live again...I want to live again."
3. I hate clowns and chicken wings ... not necessarily in that order.
4. I'm a notorious sleepwalker. It happens when I'm troubled. As far as I can tell, I always have my clothes on.
5. I had an academic scholarship. I know that's shocking, but looking at homework today, I'm pretty sure I'm tapped out at fifth grade.
6. I like to shoot 9mm guns...look out Target World, every once in a while you have to walk your inner hillbilly.
7. I started running high school track when I was in the sixth grade. Don't ask me to run now. After two kids, I pee my pants when I walk across the floor.
8. I'm like Rain Man when it comes to fractions.
9. I used to write and record songs. I won Honorable Mentions in the John Lennon Song Writing Contest and Music City Song Festival. Verrrry short career.
10. I've cliff-dived off a 40-foot cliff into a lake...wouldn't recommend it ..that sucker can burn.
11. I'm the only human I know that got turned down twice when trying to adopt handicapped dogs. What the heck...those dogs would've loved me.
12. I would've been a police officer or journalist if life didn't land me where I am.
13. I occasionally have the foul mouth of a truck driver ... sorry, Mom and Dad. I try to change it. So far, the message hasn't made it to the execution part of my brain.
