Tour Stop From Johann to Tannenbaum, Toys and Soldiers by Ashlyn Forge


Johann Andreas IV is a rich loser who has a raw deal in life.
He is handsome, yet with a poor self-image, clever, but still uneducated, and despite being the heir apparent in his grandfather’s will, he’s about to be thrown out with nothing.
In the underground colony of his birth, two things matter the most to its denizens: a name, which will guarantee his wealth and status, and a designated branding tattoo, the only thing allowing Colony-Dwellers to live safely underground.
Johann has one year to secure both.
His grandfather’s unexpected passing has propelled Johann to the foreground of his family. He must learn the family business within the year. He’s up to the challenge but one thing stands in his way; his mother has plans of her own…and they don’t include him.

Stephanie's Review

This story to me is about personal exploration and growth, no matter what walk of life you come from. 
Johann, raised in "the belly" of the colony as a nobleman has to learn to grow and become self sufficient and realize just because it is hard, doesn't mean it isn't worth it. 
The growing that Tanner needs is learning to accept help and communication. 
Through this story, Johann did nothing but royally piss me off with his horrible decisions. I almost had to stop reading at a point, he majorly upset me.... UNTIL I learned the reasons behind his issues and insecurities... 
If you like sci-fi style angsty drama stories with an HEA, then this book is for you!

I give it 3 1/2 stars
