Connor Cobalt: Birthday & Giveaway!

Hello everyone! So Siiri asked me if I wanted to be part of a birthday event for Richard Connor Cobalt from The Addicted Series/Calloway Sisters and I don't think I even blinked before answering. This is such an exciting post with some super awesome giveaways and I'm excited to be a part of it (let's count the amount of times I say excited). Celebrating fictional characters' birthdays is what I do anyways (it's totally normal!) but when that character is from one of my absolute favourite series? There's no question that I'd be part of it. 
I'm sure the majority of folks reading this are probably already members of the Fizzle Force but if you're not then I'll do a quick introduction to Connor Cobalt:
Connor is from a New Adult series written by Krista & Becca Ritchie. While he's a side character in the addicted books, he's the main protagonist in the spin-offs; Calloway Sisters.  If you've not read Addicted Series yet, I did a post on the reasons I love The Addicted Series which I hope convinces you to pick these amazing books up right now. Now, one of the major reasons I do adore these books are because of one Mr. Cobalt which is why we're celebrating him today!
Below, I've written some words about Connor accompanied by some edits I've put together. There's an amazing giveaway and to increase your chances at winning, you can participate in a treasure hunt to gain extra entries!

To wish my favourite ivy league genius billionaire a very Happy Birthday I wanted to share 5 of my fav Connor Cobalt moments so far in the Addicted Series (vague to avoid to avoid spoilers). Now that 2015 is here the wait for Fuel the Fire is slightly less but still longggg. I pray for patience. 

SLIGHT SPOILERS (but I'll try to be vague)

Top 5 Connor Moments in The Addicted Series

1. Lap dance scene in Kiss the Sky
2. Wedding in Kiss the Sky
3. Lo's Birthday Dinner in Hothouse Flower: Rose & Connor conversation
4. Limo Scene in Addicted After All
5. Connor & Lo bromance in Addicted After All
I collected these images that remind me of Connor and just because I feel like it, I'm going to explain why I chose some of them. Also, most of them are from Krista & Becca's pinterest which is a heavenly place to be,
  • All the well-dressed pictures are because obviously Connor Cobalt is the best-dressed male in the Addicted world though many would argue that it's Ryke because leather jacket sexiness. Basically, I don't even think Connor knows how to dress casual except when he goes to the gym. 
  • Although, Connor would probably never sleep with a book on his face but hella hot damn, rolled-up sleeves and top shirt button undone: jesus take the wheel. Also, he's too smart to sleep in such an unergonomic way.
  • And that kissing in the rain picture is so Rose&Connor I can't even. And you imagine Connor holding Rose so possessively and her just clinging for life.  
  • Also, Connor doesn't really like driving so I thought that bottom row middle picture is accurate cause he likes being driven by limo. Krista & Becca joke around in their livechats that he's probably not the best driver but he hasn't been in any fender benders yet so the jury's still out on that one.

Now on to the GIVEAWAY!
