Stainless by Erica Chilson Blog Tour

Foster brothers, Kaden Marx and Brennan Kennedy, are at a precipice for change. While Kaden has made a career out of higher education as a way to drag his feet from reentering the real world, Bren has been in the thick of it.

Join Kaden as he learns a valuable lesson – how having four degrees isn’t a measure of your true worth, nor is it a gauge for your maturity. Hyper-focused on the six-year age difference he has with Wynn, Kaden is blinded to the fact that Wynn is now a mature man ready for a stable future by his side.

Will Kaden and Wynn mature together, or will Kaden continue to stunt both himself and their relationship?

Over the past four years, Bren has held down a steady job, tried his hardest to please a wife who never wanted him, and raise their child in a cohesive manner. Unable to stay on this destructive path, Bren is making choices to ensure the happiness of his wife and child, not realizing he’s been placing the one person he truly wants in the friend-zone – Jackson.

The happy smile is a façade, for beneath it is a dark secret that has the ability to tear all of Rusty Knob’s major families to shreds. The terrifying past collides with the present, taking Brennan’s future down a dark spiral, where the truth is finally revealed and deep betrayals are felt.

Kaden Marx and Brennan Kennedy move back to Rusty Knob, attracting change in their wake… but whether it’s for the greater good remains to be seen.

All the Rusty Knob kids have grown and left the hood. On their own and developing their own lives and relationships, this book focuses on Brennan and Kaden but does not leave behind any of the players we've grown to know and love! I adore Kaden and Wynn! I loved reading about Wynn, he's such a great character. He really comes into his own person in this book and he calls out Kaden on his garbage and finally takes what he wants! Brennan is also finally tired of living a lie with his best friend who is now his wife and daughter's mother. They don't love each other the way a married couple should and they're driving each other crazy! Brennan finally decides to take what HE wants and that's Jackson!

This book has all kinds of crazy hot scenes and many mix-ups of characters having fun with each other.

*fans self!* Character growth abounds and the story is quick reading and brilliantly seamless.

I just love this series!

The third book in the Rusty Knob series is based on two couples who are facing their own challenges/demons. The characters have grown up since the beginning and their issues are "real world" things that real people face. This right here is why I love this series!

Kaden Marx and Wynn Gillette have reached a point in their relationship that they're FINALLY on equal ground, or are they? I enjoyed their scenes, which are humorous and passionate. They are so good for one another, it's almost sickening. Now, don't get me wrong, they have their problems, but they are able to rely on one another to get through them and it's fun to watch.

Bren's situation is another story, altogether. The issues Bren is facing are real, you see it every day. Being in a marriage that isn't what he needs or wants is devastating. I'm emotionally invested in him, for some reason. Responsibility is difficult and he is learning the hard way, but the difference for him is that he KNOWS what he wants. The question here is can he obtain it and keep everything he's worked so hard to build?

There is so much more to this story than what I've touched on! Bigotry, manipulation, enlightenment, humor, passion, and real love is what makes this story interesting. Watching life choices and the consequences that follow, be it good or bad, makes the story real.

If you haven't visited Rusty Knob, WV yet – please give it a try even if the subject matter doesn't seem to be your "genre" because I can honestly say this series has something for everyone. The characters will draw you in and the story will touch your heart, in some way.

I really needed this book. The crazy complicated relationships, the family love and connection, the romance and amazingly hot scenes got me through a personally very difficult weekend and kept me sane.

I connected completely with Kade and his struggles. His experience on social media was something many of us have experienced or witnessed. The evolution of Kade and Wynn's relationship is beautiful and incredibly hot.

Bren's story is interesting. When we start hearing Bren's story, he seems so wise and although he says he isn't judging others, what he was saying and what I was feeling didn't match. He certainly seemed judgey to me. He was, at times, a little too perfectly behaved and it bugged me. It didn't stop me enjoying his story and by the time the book came to a close I wanted more time with Bren and Jack.

The little crossovers with characters from other series written by Ms. Chilson were great. As someone who has read all of her books I was thrilled, but new readers won’t miss anything by not knowing the characters.

I loved Stainless. I don't know what Ms. Chilson has in store for us in Polished, but I look forward to finding out.

Erica Chilson does not write in the 3rd person, wanting her readers to be her characters. Therefore, writing a bio about herself, is uncomfortable in the extreme.

Born, raised, and here to stay, the Wicked Writer is a stump-jumper, a ridge-runner. Hailing from North Central Pennsylvania, directly on the New York State border; she loves the changes in seasons, the humid air, all the mountainous forest, and the gloomy atmosphere.

Introverted, but not socially awkward, Erica prides herself on thinking first and filtering her speech. There are days she doesn’t speak at all. If it wasn’t for the fact that she lives with her parents, giving her a sense of reality, she would be a hermit, where the delivery man finds her months after expiration.

Reading was an escape, a way to leave a not-so pleasant reality behind. Reading lent Erica the courage she gathered from the characters between the pages to long for a different life. Writing was an instrument of change, evolving Erica into the woman she is today- a better, more mature, more at peace thinker.

Erica has a wicked mind, one she pours out into her creations. Her filter doesn’t allow all of it to erupt, much to her relief. Sarcastic, with a very dark, perverse sense of humor, Erica puts a bit of herself into every character she writes.
