Blog Tour: Everything Changes by Molly McAdams


ChangingEverythingSynopsis: Paisley Morro has been in love with Eli since she was thirteen years old. But being his best friend and wingman, while keeping her feelings under wraps, has grown more difficult with every passing year and every new woman in his life. After twelve years, Paisley is tired of the constant heartache and has finally decided it's time to lay all her feelings on the table.
Eli Jenkins has the life: his dream job, countless beautiful women, and a best friend who's the one he counts on for everything else. One conversation, however, threatens to not only change everything between them, but possibly cause Eli to lose the only girl who has ever meant anything to him.
When a family tragedy forces Eli to take a hard look at his life, he realizes life without Paisley isn't a life at all. Only now, he may be too late.

4 Star Review by Lisa Kane

Paisley and Eli have been best friends forever. Paisley acts as Eli's wingman, getting him out of situations with women when he's not interested. They do everything together and tell each other everything. Well, maybe not everything. Paisley has been in love with Eli almost since the first time she saw him. But he is oblivious to her feelings. She has watched him take girl after girl to his bed and is often the one who winds up walking the discarded lover out of his apartment. Each time she feels her heart break just a little more, but what can she do, she's in love with him and won't risk losing his friendship by telling him how she really feels.

But she's met a guy, Brett, and he likes her. She likes him too but doesn't want to pursue anything more with him, if there is the slightest chance that Eli returns her feelings. She's urged on by * and * (her best friend and his best friend). They have watched this situation for years and think she needs to let Eli know her feelings so she can move on.

"Eli, I need to know." I exhaled softly and tried to steady my shaking as I asked, "Is there any possibility of there being an us?

So Paisley tells Eli how she feels. She tells him about Brett and her reluctance to take her relationship with him to the next level if there can be a future for them. Eli's in shock and can't help but apologize to her for not returning those same feelings. Paisley is heartbroken and leaves. Eli is left reeling from her revelation and doesn't  know what to think.

After twelve years of being his best friend, of being used by him as a shield from other women, of being tortured by his pretending touches and kisses...I was slowly giving up on us. I couldn't handle the heartache anymore. I couldn't stand being unknowingly rejected again and again. I couldn't continue being his favorite person in the world for an entirely different reason than he was mine. I couldn't keep waiting around for Eli Jenkins. 

Paisley tells herself no more. She has put it out there, he didn't return her feelings and she wants to spend her life with someone. She wants to marry and have children and she has wasted so many years loving Eli from afar. This is her time to have the happiness she deserves. So she gives in to her growing feelings for Brett and the two seriously begin dating.

Of course while she is picking up the pieces, Eli has lost his best friend. He is lost without her, and at the same time he has a lot of bad, crazy things happen in his family. His sister, Rachel  and her boyfriend Kash (characters from the Forgiving Lies series) play a part in this story and he must deal with that. When he asks his sister if she is hurting, she tells him,

"I don't need pain medicine...I need the other half of my soul back."

He realizes Paisley is his soul mate and he messed up big time. So he makes up his mind to get her back. Only Brett isn't going to make that easy for either one of them. Can Eli and Paisley have what they both want?

This book started out with some angty moments and I loved that! It ended on more of a sweet note as Eli and Paisley's story played out. Tying together characters from another series by the same author doesn't always work, but in this case it was a nice touch.

"But, Paisley, I don't regret any of that nearly as much as I regret not realizing I was in love with you long before now."


Oh the joys of watching the man you love get ready to take another woman home … especially when she’s one bad dye job away from being an Oompa-Loompa. Here’s a little snippet from CHANGING EVERYTHING for y’all! Enjoy! “Pay!” “Oh no,” I breathed, and looked at Kristen to act like I hadn’t heard Eli. “If he makes me play pool with him while he makes out with another girl again, I will lose it!” “He’s smiling, at least he didn’t see you moping—and he’s walking over here. With her. Right now. He’s—” “Pay, we’re gonna head out, were you ready to leave?” I turned to look at them with a smile plastered on my face, but it was entirely possible I looked like I was grimacing. “Well … ” I began, but the girl in Eli’s arms held up her hand. She made a sickened face as her head jerked up to look at Eli, then back at me. Long seconds passed as she looked me up and down with her lips parted in disgust. “Um … ew! I’m, like, not really into that whole threesome thing. So gross. Yano?” I wanted to remind her that “you” and “know” were two separate words … but with the way she looked, I was surprised she knew that Eli plus her plus me equaled three and not the color burrito, so I kept that to myself. Eli’s face pinched together like he’d eaten something sour, and before he said something that would inevitably crush me even more tonight, I tried to speak his latest pick’s language. “Ohmigod, like, ew, right?” Kristen’s hand flew to her mouth as beer sprayed out, and Eli’s lack-of-amused expression let me know that he knew what I was doing. At least I didn’t feel like I was going to throw up anymore. “Threesomes are so way gross,” I continued, not like I’d know. But the girl nodded her head and pursed her lips. “So, like, is she gonna watch?” she asked, and it took everything in me not to shoot Eli a look that said: Really? This is what you want?- Molly McAdams, Changing Everything Molly’s next book will be Trusting Liam: A Taking Chances and Forgiving Lies Novel, available on June 9th, 2015!

  1. No I have not. I think it would be flattering and scary at the same time
