Blog Tour for The Evolve Series by S. E. Hall


Laney Walker is a quick witted, athletic, southern tomboy who lets few get too close, using her sarcastic zingers to deflect. She also has no idea how others view her since Evan, her best friend, has coveted her since they were children. But college puts a gap between Laney and Evan that neither of them were prepared for- old relationships are tested, new ones are formed and nothing will ever be the same.

Especially when in walks one Dane Kendrick, not at all the familiar, southern charmer of home, but an animal all his own.

A story of growing up, friendship, loyalty, first love, primal love...and life.

N/A Coming of Age- MATURE audiences.


Evan Allen is a handsome, athletic, southern gentleman who now attends Georgia Southern University for no good reason.

After what he expected to be the romantic gesture of the century, Evan is looking at no friends, a year of ineligibility on the football team, and no girl.

He's starting over alone and doesn't know quite how to proceed. Certain members of The Crew refuse to let him face things by himself, taking him under their wing, and it doesn't take the ladies long to notice him, either.

Sometimes life doesn't go as you had planned. Sometimes it goes better.

Embrace it.

Embrace, the second book in the Evolve Series by S.E. Hall, follows the characters from her debut New Adult romance, Emerge.


Things heat up, and not just the Georgia summertime, when Dane and Laney go head to head over plans for her new duplex. But Laney's got his number, and knows just how to coerce her bossy, domineering man. Spend the summer with the gang and find out...just how many is a crowd?

The members of the Evolve Crew are getting older; so is the content. Mature audiences recommended.

Optimal reading order: Emerge, Embrace, Entangled

Review by Gia:

This is a wonderful series.  I absolutely loved reading it.   As the series goes on the characters mature.

In the first book, Emerge, we get to meet everybody.   In Emerge, Laney and Evan go from best friends to boyfriend and girlfriend.  Then they end up going to different colleges.  During a Hall Crawl, Laney meets Dane and his friends.  I loved the Hall Crawl scene.  Emerge was well written and it's easy to connect with the characters.   The ending leaves you wanting more.

Embrace is the second book in the series.  You need to read Emerge first.  Embrace picks up where Emerge left off.  At first, I had a little trouble getting into Embrace.  Evan gave up so much to be with Laney, I had expected him to fight for her.  I guess it wouldn't have matter because Laney already gave her heart to Dane.  I loved the summaries of Evan's failed dates, they were very funny.  I was not a big fan of Whitney in Emerge but S.E. Hall does a great job making us like Whitney is this book.  This a great second book to the series and Evan gets a HEA. 

Entangled is a short story.  This a quick read but it's good.   Entangled also is a funny read.  You'll have to read it to find out what Dane calls Triple D and what Laney calls Pussy Persuasion, those scenes are definitely laugh out loud scenes.   It gives you a Crew fix while you are waiting for Sawyer's story, Entice.

All three books are great!  I can't wait for the next one.
5 Amazeballs Stars!
