Living Out Loud by Staci Hart *~*~*~*~* Release Day Blitz

Living Out Loud-ReleaseBlitz.jpg

Living Out Loud, an all-new emotional standalone from Staci Hart is LIVE!


Bestselling author Staci Hart brings you another installment of the Austen Series, inspired by the works of Jane Austen, with a heartfelt contemporary retelling of Sense and Sensibility.
When Annie Daschle arrives in New York City, the only thing she can control is her list.
Not her father’s death or the loss of her home. Not the hole in her heart or the defective valve that’s dictated so much of her life. But she can put pen to paper to make a list of all the ways she can live out loud, just like her dad would have wanted.
See the city from the top of the Empire State Building: Check.
Eat hot dogs on the steps of The Met: Check.
Get a job at Wasted Words: Check.
What wasn’t on her list: Greg Brandon. And just when she thinks she’s figured out where to put him, everything changes. In the span of a few staggering heartbeats, she finds herself her caught in the middle of something she can’t find her way out of, with no clear answers and no rules.
List or no list, she realizes she can’t control anything at all, not even her heart.
Not the decisions it makes, and not the moment it stops.

I Heart Books Review 

Living Out Loud by Staci Hart 
Review by Theresa Esterline 
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Be loud!! 

Have you ever just wished the two characters you are reading about could read each other's thoughts? Ugh! But of course, what fun would that be to read... This one is sad, comical, frustrating, heartfelt, and exciting!! It will be okay if you haven't read Last Call (Bad Habits #3) and Wasted Words (Austen's #1), but if you have you'll have background on Greg and know some of the gang. And now a bit about the story...

Annie adult life is just starting. She hasn't really ever lived and now her father is dead and her mother is paralyzed. She's 18 and off to New York City with her mom and two sisters to live with her aunt and uncle. She has a book of firsts she can't wait to accomplish. Greg isn't on her list though. And when she falls for another before she really sees him, finishing her list may become impossible.

Favorite passages:
- “He’d tell us to find joy every day, to hang on to each other, to turn our faces to the sun and warm ourselves with hope.”
- Maybe a rabid poodle, coiffed with a ridiculous haircut meant to make her look fancy. Because it was painfully clear that Fanny thought she was fancy. But it was hard to take her seriously when she was foaming at the mouth.
- “And she only needed two stitches.” 
- “You know that old saying, If you have to ask yourself the question, the answer is probably no?”
- I’d expected magic, and I’d gotten mediocre. I shouldn’t have been disappointed, but I was. 
- “In life, all things are temporary.” “That’s both futile and comforting.”
- I also discovered that running was the actual worst and vowed never to do it again unless someone was after me with a weapon. 

Note: I was given a free copy and voluntarily chose to review this book.

About the Author


Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife, though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
