Kyra Lennon and Game On

As many of know... or maybe some of you don't know... Kyra Lennon has been touring all over the blogosphere this week to celebrate the release of her new novel Game On.

She is a very talented writer with a great sense of humor and most importantly she is dependable - and did I mention talented.

So without further ado GAME ON!



After swapping her small town life to work for one of the top soccer teams in the U.S., Leah Walker thought she could finally leave the ghosts of her past behind. However, when she meets serial womanizer, Radleigh McCoy, the memories of her old life come swarming back, and she is forced to ask herself whether she has really changed at all.





And now, here's Leah from Game On with an awesome tour of her place!


Hey everyone, Leah here! How are you enjoying the Game On Blog Tour so far? I must say, it’s a lot of fun to see so many people joining in! Today, Kyra asked me to give you a tour of my L.A apartment. I talk about it so much in the book, it’s only fair that you get to see what it looks like!  Here are some shots for you to enjoy!

As you can probably tell, Freya isn’t big on having excess amounts of stuff everywhere. Obviously, our shoe collection needs a home, and maybe books and shoes don’t entirely go together, but hey, I just moved in! It might be a bit too soon to criticize her decorating skills!


This is – obviously – our living room. It’s really cosy - and that coffee table in the middle of the room- that is quite often covered in wine bottles and pizza boxes. Sure, we could sit at the dining table in the corner, but it’s far more comfortable to sit on our girly rug in front of the TV! Also, see that pile of cushions in the corner? Freya likes to keep them there for when we have people over. It makes them feel more at home if they can help themselve to pillows and stuff, and sprawl across the floor. Mostly, it’s Bree and Will who come over, but occasionally, other work friends stop by too.

My absolute favourite part of the house is this balcony. After work, I often sit out here, looking out at the view.


I took this photo really early in the morning so the beach is deserted. Actually, even in the morning there are usually a few people out there, surfing. But by the time I get back from work, the beach is usually crawling with people. It’s really fun to watch everyone!


I really love our kitchen. It’s small, but it’s very modern and I love to cook! I don’t do it very often but cook significantly more often than Freya, who considers it a boring task. The cupboard on the end, above the coffee machine, is where I keep my imported tea bags!


Probably should have made my bed before I took the picture! This is one side of my enormous bedroom. I have never had a room like this before, and I just love how much space there is! As you can see, I need two wardrobes for all my clothes. I swear, I didn’t shop as much until I met Freya and Bree!



This is the other half of my room, and as you can see, there are even more shoe racks in here. The shelf above them is where I keep all of my tacky souvenirs. Well, not all of them, because there are too many. The shelf holds my favourites, the rest are in a box under the bed.


Freya’s room is across the hall from mine. She keeps it as minimalistic as the rest of the flat, but she still doesn’t seem to mind leaving piles of books and clothes lying around! On the wall opposite her bed is a gigantic flat screen TV, and her wardrobes and yet more shoe racks are on the wall you can’t see.


This is Freya’s en-suite bathroom. It’s very girly, just like Freya. I have my own en-suite too, but it’s a bit small to take a photo of.


And finally, this is the other bathroom, used mainly for guests. Yeah, three bathrooms, in a two bedroom apartment! This is my favourite of them all though. I love the colours, and the shark border around the walls.
So, there you have it! Hope you enjoyed this little tour of my apartment!

P.S Don’t forget to join in the Team Leah/Team Radleigh competition to be entered into a cool prize draw! HERE!

  10. I'd left a comment days ago using my Kindle Fire, but noticed it's missing ... so apparently my Kindle hates me. I told Dani that I'd do another comment to show support and because I heart you guys!


    I LOVE the pics of their pad. It's cool that we get to "see" where they live.
