BLOG TOUR AND GIVEAWAY: Can't Go Withouth (Oasis Waterfall #2) by Angelisa Stone

“What’s the one thing you can’t go without?”

Tristan O'Donnell has money, women, and all the luxuries that cold hard cash can buy. Tristan's been sucking sunshine right from the monogrammed silver spoon his life was served up on since the day he was born. And quite frankly, he wouldn't want it any other way. He's his mother's pride and joy, his father's right-hand-man, and the envy of every guy around. All Tristan has to do is flash his million dollar smile, give his trademark wink, and he gets what he wants, when he wants, anytime he wants.

Leah Franchetti grinds her fingers to the bone; sculpting, painting, recreating treasures from trash—the very sentiment that defines her life. Her inventive, vindictive, lucrative, and seemingly unforgivable plan allowed her to shortcut her way into the life she always imagined, owning an art gallery, surrounding herself in the comfort of her passion and dreams.

When circumstances force Leah and Tristan to come face-to-face with the past and with Leah’s devious manipulation, truths come flooding forth, destroying those in the present and possibly jeopardizing both of their highly anticipated futures.

Can Tristan overcome Leah’s slander and deception—despite how dangerously close he comes to losing the one thing he can’t go without—money? Will Leah be forced to come clean, knowing she’ll have to live her life with the one thing she can’t go without—her dignity?

Where to buy


After reading Can't Go Home (Book 1 in the Oasis Waterfall Series) I never in a million years thought I could or would ever like Tristan.  There have been characters in the past who I didn't like that were redeemed to me, but none of them started off in my head as horribly as Tristan had.  I'm happy to say, he well and truly surprised me.  Apparently all Tristan needed was some time to grow up.

There wasn't much I didn't love about Leah (except for the horrendous lie she told, obviously).  She struck me as a truly down to earth girl who is desperately trying to get everything she wanted out of life.  She is sweet and spunky, and just a little bit lost.

I love seeing everyone from Can't Go Home pop back up and meeting new characters.  It was awesome seeing how everyone's lives moved on and evolved all while Tristan and Leah figured their stuff out.  For me that gave this book sense of  "real life" that can sometimes be lacking in a series like this.

I know I'll be looking for Book 3 in the Oasis Waterfall series!

About the author

Who is Angelisa Stone?

Angelisa Stone is a typical Midwestern wife and mom, frazzled by parenting and housework, and overwhelmed with sports schedules, doctor appointments, and three-dimensional creative projects due “tomorrow morning.” Stone dreams of white sandy beaches, clear-blue waters, and Midori coladas in hand, but realizes that her loving husband and four not-so-perfect children are her real dreams-come-true. Writing and reading are her passions, and she hopes (and prays with her fingers tightly crossed) that readers will find enjoyment and escape through her words and characters. Stone's first novel, Can't Go Home, is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble now.
