Book Tour: Crossover ( The Chosen One Trilogy #1) by Mireille Chester

Author: Mireille Chester
Title: Crossover (The Chosen One Trilogy: book one)
Genre: Fantasy Romance
Publication Date: June 8, 2015
Twenty-three-year-old Hayden Carlson never led an exciting life, but that was how she preferred it. She never expected that an innocent trail ride in the woods would change her life forever.
Suddenly Hayden is pulled into a world she never knew existed and discovers a future awaits her there she isn't prepared to accept...until she meets the mysterious Jasper. Drawn to his quiet, conflicted spirit and entranced by his blue eyes, Hayden finds herself experiencing feelings she has never felt before and wondering where all this might lead.
Hayden's presence in Quelondain creates tension. Amidst constant danger, she finds true love and through it all determines where she will take her stand in the conflict her arrival ignites between good and evil.

It’s hard to believe that at one point life had seemed dull, boring, average and uneventful. That was the way I liked it. My life was routine--one day at a time with no extra fuss. Everything I did was so uneventful that, for the most part, I didn’t even dream, or at least I didn't have any dreams that I could remember. My days followed a simple rhythm. I got up every Monday morning, took a shower, ate breakfast, and headed to school. There, I sat and suffered for eight hours. I was in my first year of classes for veterinary medicine. Now, don’t get me wrong, I loved my coursework. The reason I felt like I was suffering was because those eight hours stood between me and Dodge.
Dodge was my thirteenth birthday present. He’d been a goofy looking weanling with long legs and soft eyes. He’d stood looking up at me from his stall with a big green bow tied around his neck. He was perfect.
You see, I’d been riding since I was eight and begging for a horse since I could talk. Before he’d given me my horse, my dad had told me I had to prove to him that I was going to stick with it. That hadn't been hard to do. I can’t begin to count the arguments we've had about the fact that I spend most of my free time with Dodge.
Dodge is now ten and I'm twenty-three. He has grown into a beautiful, muscular horse and I'm, well, I'm happy with life as it is. Just me and Dodge. It’s not that I'm not interested in men. I've had one fairly serious relationship that lasted a year and a half. At least I thought it was serious. When I think back on it now, it’s hard to believe I’d thought he was the most amazing guy. Well, he was, until I loaned him my truck for a weekend and found a very nice pair of lacy underwear that didn't belong to me under the seat the next day. They say Canadians are sweet, polite, and will forgive anything and everything. Yeah. Apparently, I didn't get the memo.
I’ve had a few other boyfriends, but most of them didn't understand why I’d rather go to the barn on a Friday night instead of going to the bar. The thought of going out and being paraded around just isn't my thing, and I’ll admit that some of it probably has to do with my personal image of myself. I don’t put myself in the “beautiful people” category. 
My slightly wavy dark brown hair that falls to the middle of my back is never done. I prefer ponytails and baseball hats. I also don’t have the greatest body. At five-foot-four, I'm kind of thin and seriously lacking curves. Of course, I don’t really dress to flatter, either. My wardrobe consists of Wranglers, t- shirts, and tank tops, though I do own one dress. My dad made me buy it for my cousin’s wedding when I was seventeen. It’s been worn as little as possible since then. I think my best feature is my eyes. They’re a deep green with gold and grey specs and long eyelashes. No mascara for me. Well, no makeup, period. I always end up smearing it because I forget I'm wearing it.
You’re probably getting tired of hearing about me, but I need you to understand one thing before I get on with this story. I've always been a loner, that person who is never comfortable around people. Now, don’t get me wrong, I like most people, but I've always felt like I didn't belong. You know, like there was something very important missing.
Then one day everything changed. It was a Friday…

Crossover invites readers to be whisked away on a journey into the world of Quelondain. And this author has one of the best imaginations, I like how simple the story starts out pulling you in the simple normally "human" world and then we crossover into a mystical world and creatures. 
Hayden is an ordinary college student studying veterinary medicine. She loves her horse Dodge and she spends all her time riding preferring the solitude to socialising. That is until she takes a ride through a trail she has a million times and she sees the most handsome guy she have ever seen. She thinks she is dreaming and decides she will come back on the trail the next day to see if she can see the guy again. She goes to the trail the next day and she sees him there waiting for her. She stops to talk to him and he asks her to follow him over to the blue waters. She is intrigued by this beautiful guy so she agrees and follows him. Once she is there she has a need and feeling that leave her not wanting to leave him awakening something in her and she is not sure what it is. She can’t stop thinking about him and how much she wants to touch him and kiss him.“Then there’s no reason why I can’t do this,” I muttered as I stretched up and touched my lips to his. Jasper’s eyes widened in surprise. I laced my fingers behind his head, scared he was going to pull away. I didn't need to worry. He groaned and pulled me tighter against him, wrapping his arms around me. 
Hayden soon finds out what is calling her to this man and she will have to choose between her regular life or start a new life. She knows Jasper is no regular guy she wants to know what it is that pulls her to him. She will travel into a world few know about and she will learn who she really is. She will have to trust people and she will have to fight hard to be in a world where thinks are not as they seem.Take a ride on this fantastical roller coaster with Hayden and Jasper and learn what it means to be a supernatural being. She will see what true love is and sacrifice. The only thing is she will need to stay out of the cross fires that have begun since her entrance into this new world.
