Blog Tour: Inside Out by Aimee Nicole Walker #Excerpt #Review #Giveaway

RELEASE DATE: 01.14.19

COVER ARTIST:  Jay Aheer/Simply Defined Art


Romeo Bradly and Julius Shepherd moved to Blissville for the same reason: a fresh start. Romeo was looking for a school district where he could make a real impact in the lives of students and faculty, and Julius was eager to teach one of his passions to the best and brightest at a school with a nationally ranked science program. But the sleepy little town offered them much more than they’d bargained for—quirky people, unlikely friendships, and an all-consuming attraction that turns them inside out.

When unexpected circumstances threaten to cancel the school play, Romeo’s theater background and Julius’s musical expertise make them the perfect pair to save the day. Working together so closely makes it harder for the men to ignore their growing feelings. After all, the heart knows what it wants and doesn’t care about age gaps, race, or a professional conflict of interest. Romeo and Julius will learn that they have far more in common than they realize, and their differences will make them stronger if they give love a chance.

Their commitment to each other and the play will be tested when outside forces target them as a couple and exert pressure to cancel the production. Romeo and Julius vow to prove their love can conquer any challenge and will burn strong well beyond the curtain call.

Inside Out is a whimsical, May/December romance featuring a man learning to love again and a man falling in love for the first time. It is the sixth book in the Road to Blissville series and can be read as a standalone book or part of the series. This book contains sexually explicit material and is intended for adults 18 and older.

It’s always nice to go back to Blissville and with Romeo and Julius, it was especially fun. This town is so full of love and quirky characters and happy ever after. 

Romeo  is the new school superintendent in Blissville and Jules is the young, sexy new science teacher at the high school. They both start work at the same time and while very aware of each other, they shy away a bit because of Romeo’s position as superintendent. When the two are thrown together to save the school play, these two cannot ignore or fight their growing feelings. They may be different is many ways, age, race, and even their experiences with love. These two will prove though that they are force to be reckoned with. When bullies and bigots threaten to ruin the play, Rome and Jules will stand together and win the day...and each other.

This is such a sweet story, a true reminder that “love is love”. I found that I loved the fact that the book showcases such loving and open minded educators. This is a love story in its most basic form, good wins over bad and love conquers all. At the end of the day that is so often exactly what I need in a book...love, romance, acceptance and something that just makes me feel good. This book is a perfect to curl up in a blanket with and just enjoy.


It was nearly impossible to keep from checking the clock after receiving the text from Rome that he was on his way back to Blissville. I tried watching the football games on TV, but I couldn’t tell you the score or even who was playing. I also kept my ears tuned for the sound of his car pulling up outside.

The apartment I rented was above a garage and could only be accessed by walking through it, which might make many feel like they were trespassing. Wren did keep a classic car in the garage below and a ton of tools, so I was always cautious to keep the door locked. When I finally heard Rome’s car pull into the driveway and stop beside my car, I jogged down the steps and opened the outside door.

“Hey,” I said when he and Dolly reached me.

“Hey yourself,” he said warmly. I could see how badly he wanted to kiss me, so I stepped closer and met him halfway. I didn’t want there to be any hesitation between us unless we were in a place where PDA wouldn’t be appreciated.

“I wasn’t sure if I should kiss you in open view of Dare and Wren’s house,” he said, staring at my lips. “They might not be watching.” I moved until my lips were just a breath away. If he wanted me, he would need to come and get me. “Then again, they could have the binoculars out.”

I am a wife and mother to three kids, three dogs, and a cat. When I’m not dreaming up stories, I like to lose myself in a good book, cook or bake. I'm a girly tomboy
who paints her fingernails while watching sports and yelling at the referees.
I will always choose the book over the movie. I believe in happily-ever-after. Love inspires everything that I do. Music keeps me sane.
