Blog Tour: Forged by Becky Banks Review & Giveaway

First loves, dark pasts, and fast cars collide in this high-octane adventure.

Nathaniel Vellanova spent his youth dodging fists between installing turbo kits and kicking around with his tomboy girlfriend Eva Lynn Rodgers. Now, in the pissing rain of Portland, Oregon, Nathaniel confronts his demons with one finger in the air and the other on the wheel of his Aston Martin.

Eva Lynn escaped her humble beginnings to fulfill lofty New York dreams. Back in Portland to be with her father, who is fighting cancer, she runs into the man she left behind to become the woman she is.

Passionate and dangerous sparks ignite as Nathaniel’s brutal youth rises up and yanks Eva Lynn back to him, forging a bond that, this time, won’t be denied.


Another fantastic novel by Becky Banks! Becky's first novel,The Legend of Lady MacLaoch, was a favorite of mine. Recently she informed me that a sequel is in the works, which she never thought she'd do. So, for all you Legend of Lady MacLaoch fans, there will be more!!

Forged is a again, an exciting romance with a strong heroine and a stern, alpha male hero. Which is how I like it. *winks* Both novels are unique and have a dark, thrilling theme, where you get sucked into the characters world and find yourself on the edge of your seat, routing for the couple.

If I had to sum up Eva and Nathaniel in three words each, I'd choose strong, smart and passionate for Eva. And stubborn, handsome and loyal for Nathaniel. I could also choose a few other choice words for Nathaniel at first, but it's plain to see he was only angry because he was still deeply hurting from his past.

With strong emotion and excellent writing, you can't go wrong with this thrilling romance. I can't wait to see what Becky comes up with next. I also can't wait to get my hands on The Legend of Lady MacLaoch's sequel! I highly recommend you check out her novels!

Becky Banks grew up, like the generations of Bankses before her, in the Hawaiian Islands. With the Islands as her roots, Becky was raised within the time-honored tradition of “talking story” amid a backdrop of grassy fields, blue waters, and cloud-clad mountains. She moved to the mainland after high school to attend Oregon State University, where she studied forestry, natural resources, and science education. 

She lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband Keith.

Becky’s first novel, The Legend of Lady MacLaoch, received Night Owl Reviews’ Top Pick Award and achieved #8 on the Amazon Bestsellers list for Historical Romance
