Welcome to today’s stop on the blog tour for Last Kiss by Laurelin Paige!
Please welcome Laurelin to the blog today with a Q&A!

Author Interview: Laurelin Paige

How were you able to write such an intense, alpha character as Reeve?

Honestly? I don’t know. He scared me. He still does. There were many scenes I had to rewrite because he came off too hard or too transparent. It was definitely a difficult process.

When I needed inspiration, I turned to other intense alpha heroes that I love. Naz from JM Darhower’s Monster in His Eyes is one of my main inspirations. I also looked a lot to my critique partner and fed off her reactions.

Did you have the whole story plotted out before writing? Did anything surprise you as you wrote?

As with most of my stories, I began writing First Touch and Last Kiss by fitting key plot points into an outline. This is where I usually dive into the prose, but since I was selling this series before it had been written, I had to write a detailed synopsis for both books. Though I’m a plotter by nature, I find writing detailed synopses very difficult. I don’t always know the details until I get writing so I have to guess. Not surprisingly, my synopses look different than the finished product, but the main points stayed the same. One of the biggest changes was the ranch. I didn’t have a ranch setting in the original plot—all of that part of the story was to take place on the island. The island proved to be a tricky setting for various reasons and a lot of what I’d planned didn’t make sense there anymore. Changing to the ranch was the best solution.

How did it feel to end Emily and Reeve’s story?

I was actually quite relieved. I wasn’t sure I could do it. Wasn’t sure I could get to the end. The story was so layered and complex, and I just didn’t know if I could manage it, so getting to the last page proved a major triumph.

Now that there’s been some time between writing the end and the publication, I miss them. I’m really excited to finally get the end of the story out to readers.

What was your inspiration for the First and Last series?

For a long time, I’d wanted to write a story about a love triangle where one of the characters wasn’t present. Much like the book, Rebecca, by Daphne du Maurier or Jane Eyre. At one point, I’d thought it would be a sweeter take on the story. Something where the memory of a dead friend permeated a current relationship so thoroughly that it placed a burden on the characters.

I also wanted to write something in the vein of Gone Girl and Girl on a Train – a psychological thriller, but with romantic elements. I’m very fascinated by characters motivations and a psychologically suspenseful plotline just intrigued me to no end.

I thought, at first, that these were two different stories, and I hadn’t quite figured out what either of them would look like exactly until I read a description of a book that was about to be published (I don’t remember what it was) about a woman who had to go to extreme lengths to look for her sister who’d gone missing. The pieces started to click together, and soon I had the idea of a woman setting off in search of a friend/sister in a dangerous place that required her to face her own psychological demons as well as some very real threats. Next thing I knew, the plot to First Touch had been born.

Who was your favorite character to write in the First and Last series and why?

My favorite character in First and Last is probably Reeve. He continually surprised me with his intensity and depth of emotion. He made me feel things I didn’t think he’d make me feel.

But I also really enjoyed writing Joe. He got to ask all the questions that I wanted answered and he was sincerely committed to his cause.

Did you have a favorite scene to write in Last Kiss? What about a favorite scene to read?

I really liked writing the first scene in the whole book, where Reeve and Emily meet. It was such fun to explore the superficial aspects of these characters, to have them flirt and tease while hinting at deeper agendas for both of them. At that point in the book, I knew everything and the readers knew nothing. I got to drop whatever clues I felt like dropping and that was just fun.

I don’t particularly enjoy reading most of what I’ve written. I’m too anxious about it. Too critical. That being said, I really don’t mind reading the porch scene in Last Kiss. It’s sweet and sexy and gives me all kinds of feels.

What are you currently working on?

Currently, I’m writing Chandler, a standalone novel in my Fixed Universe series that will be coming out in September. On top of that, I’m co-writing Screwmates with Kayti McGee which will be coming out later this fall.

What made you decide to go with a duet instead of a standalone or trilogy? What would you say was the hardest part about writing this duet?

I wanted that awesome cliffhanger, of course! I wouldn’t have been able to torture my readers with the wait between books. But also, and more importantly, the story I wanted to tell was constructed very much to be before a particular event and after. It’s a very clear dividing line, and it felt like the best way to tell it was in two acts.

Anything you’d like to leave the readers with?

I’m so thrilled with the love readers have shown for Emily and Reeve. It was a very difficult story for me to write because of its dark nature, but the enthusiasm for the series has really made the effort worth it.

Release Day Review + Author Interview: Bittersweet by Sarina Bowen

Bittersweet by Sarina Bowen
Series: True North #1 (full reading order below)
Publication Date: June 14th 2016
Links: EbookPaperback • Goodreads
Source: I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review

Farmers make the earth move.

The last person Griffin Shipley expects to find stuck in a ditch on his Vermont country road is his ex-hookup. Five years ago they’d shared a couple of steamy nights together. But that was a lifetime ago.

At twenty-seven, Griff is now the accidental patriarch of his family farm. Even his enormous shoulders feel the strain of supporting his mother, three siblings and a dotty grandfather. He doesn’t have time for the sorority girl who’s shown up expecting to buy his harvest at half price.

Vermont was never in Audrey Kidder’s travel plans. Neither was Griff Shipley. But she needs a second chance with the restaurant conglomerate employing her. Okay—a fifth chance. And no self-righteous lumbersexual farmer will stand in her way.

They’re adversaries. They want entirely different things from life. Too bad their sexual chemistry is as hot as Audrey’s top secret enchilada sauce, and then some.

Warning: Contains sexual situations, gourmet yumminess, a steamy outdoor shower and proof that farmers don’t mind getting dirty.

Holy freaking CRAP, I loved this book SO DAMN MUCH!!!! Bittersweet is the type of book that went above and beyond anything I ever expected. This is that first straight romance I’ve read from Sarina Bowen and it will definitely not be my last. I honestly can’t handle the amount of love I have for this book. IT. IS. AMAZING!!! Charmingly hilarious, amazingly sexy, and utterly heartwarming, Bittersweet swept me away and made my heart so happy. It’s one of the best books I’ve read all year!

Audrey and Griffin hooked up once in college but haven’t seen each other for years since. Audrey went off to become a chef and Griffin went off to play ball, only to go back home to the ranch help out his family. Now, both are struggling with their careers, but a twist of fate brings them back together, and they find that they can help each other out job-wise. Except the crazy hot chemistry they used to have back in college is still going strong. Should they get involved with each other again when they’re living two completely different lives… Or do they have something worthwhile to pursue?

She and I were a dangerous combination. We needed cautionary signs like the ones hanging in the tractor shed over the cans of diesel fuel. WARNING: COMBUSTIBLE.

Audrey and Griffin are absolutely AMAZING together!!! They are wonderful as individuals, both so strong, independent, funny, and lovable, but together is when they truly shine. They might not have been meant for each other in college, but fate has brought them together again for a reason, and you can clearly see that they are absolutely meant to be together. Griff is all big, sexy, protective, and caring, while Audrey is charming, witty, gorgeous, and ambitious. Their growing romance (and the hot, hot, HOT sexy times) was phenomenally written. Sarina Bowen has written a beautiful love story I rooted for from start to finish.

Whether it was convenient or not, Audrey and I just fit. We’d always been good together. It’s just that I’d never allowed myself to imagine a future where we shared everything. A bed. A home.
A name.
Hell. That got me panting. I wanted everything. There was nobody else who got under my skin like she had. To think of her as mine seemed like an impossible luxury.
It’s the only luxury I’ve ever been greedy for.

What I also loved about Bittersweet besides the romance was the farming life! The author was able to integrate everything related to farming in a cohesive, understandable, and relatable way, and I applaud her for it. Really, there was no part of this book that I didn’t enjoy or love. I never wanted Griffin and Audrey’s story to end! No joke, I couldn’t stop smiling as I read this book, giggling at all the witty banter and grinning at the delicious tension between the main characters. It was a fantastic start to the True North series, and I’m already dying for more. I can’t wait to read the next two books!

Author Interview: Sarina Bowen

Bittersweet is one of my favorite reads of the year! What inspired you to write it?

Thank you! Farmers really are sexy. True story! I am surrounded by interesting growers where I live. They’re young activists who want to change the shape of our food supply, and they are really inspiring.

Did you have to do some research on the farming aspect of the story?

Yes, and I enjoyed every moment of it. The organic-or-die Cedar Circle Farm in Thetford, VT is one of my favorite stops, and we buy hard cider in growlers from Poverty Lane Orchard in Lebanon, NH.

I’m in LOVE with Griffin – do you have a model inspiration for him?

Not really! Finding that photo for the cover, though, was some excellent luck. I thought: there he is!

Who was your favorite character to write?

I love them all equally. 😉

What was your favorite scene to write?

The cider-tasting scene! I cracked myself right up when Audrey would think the cider tasted like sex.

I know Jude will be getting his story next in Steadfast, but will Zach be book #3? *cough* Male virgin alert! *cough*

Oh you better believe it! Zach is totally book #3.

Will we see more of Griff and Audrey in the upcoming True North books?

Absolutely. I promise!

What are you currently working on now?

I’m writing Brooklyn Bruisers #3 (even though #1 hasn’t come out yet) and putting final touches on STEADFAST.

Thank you so much, Sarina, for the interview!

Release Week Blitz + Author Interview & Giveaway: Cuff Me by Lauren Layne

Cuff Me release

Happy Release Day to Lauren Layne – Cuff Me is live!
Check out my Q&A with Lauren and a fantastic giveaway below, and read my review for Cuff Me here!

Author Interview: Lauren Layne

What did you love most about writing Vincent’s character?

I think how genuinely “head up his @$$” he is. You know every now and then you encounter a macho hero, and you don’t quite buy that he’d be so oblivious. For me, Vincent has always been the brother that really was that clueless. He doesn’t relate to people in a “normal” way, and it takes him so adorably long to figure out why what he he feels for Jill is different than what he feels for other people.

What was your favorite scene to write in Cuff Me?

It’s a toss-up between the doughnut scene (you’ll know when you read it), and the two of them alone together in the motel. Both tugged at my heartstrings, because we really get to see Vincent at his most vulnerable.

What makes Vincent and Jill’s relationship different from the other couples’ in the series?

Vincent and Jill have known each other for quite awhile before the start of the book, so it’s a different kind of love story altogether. Instead of there being the classic “meet cute” these are two people who know each other incredibly well, but haven’t quite figured out how perfect they are together.

Who would you cast as Vincent and Jill?

I always had Kristen Bell in mind for Jill and someone with a sort of Chris Messina vibe for Vin.

Would you ever write Marco’s story?

I think so! I know exactly how his story unfolds in my head (and it is sex-ay!) but for now the series is a 3-book series ☺

Who is your favorite Moretti brother?

Anthony. I’m a sucker for the strong, silent types. Although I also sort of have to say that since I named his character after my husband.

Vincent Moretti is one of the NYPD’s top homicide detectives-and one of the most eligible bachelors in town. His family, however, thinks he should date his longtime partner, Jill-a sassy, sexy, smart-mouthed blonde who drives him absolutely crazy.

Behind the quiet authority, tough-guy demeanor, and dark aviator glasses lies a man with a big soul-and a hard body that can soften any girl’s heart. After years as his coworker, Jill Henley has given up hope that anything could happen between her and Vin. Besides, loving him would break all the rules. But seeing Jill with someone else triggers feelings in Vincent he never knew he had. Now he’ll have to stop playing good cop/bad cop-and find a way to convince her to be his partner for life. . .

Author Interview: Pepper Winters

­ What would readers be surprised to find out about you?

That I’m really not that interesting. Um…not sure…let’s see. I don’t like tomatoes. That’s a random fact.

Tell us about your writing process. Do you start with an idea or a character? Do you know what’s going to happen from the beginning or do you figure it out as you write?

I have a vague plot line and character script but as I get to know the people I’m writing and the story arc, it normally always changes. It’s great to see characters take control and guide me in a different direction.

Who gave you the one piece of writing advice that sticks with you to this day?

Not particularly spoken piece of advice, but I do remember reading Laini Taylor’s work and ‘clicking’ with her beautiful writing. That was the day I found my voice.

Is there one thing you have to have when writing?

Yes, a glass of icy cold Coke Zero and lots of water.

How did you choose the names of your characters?

I let them choose. I might have place holders in for a while until it comes to me, or browse on baby websites until something clicks.

How has music played a role in your life and in your writing?

Not at all. I have to have complete silence to write. But I love the way some lyrics can tell the soul of my story and list those in the playlists at the back of my work.

When was the moment that you knew you had to be a writer?

When I was about six years old and I wrote a story in my school book that was meant to be math homework.

What can you tell us about your couple, that we won’t find in the book?

Oh, not sure. What sort of stuff do you want to know? I guess, you won’t find their generic everyday likes and dislikes. For example, Kill loves coffee black.

Do you have any favorite book boyfriends of your own?

I have too many to count. It wouldn’t be fair to list in case I miss one.

What are five books on your night stand/bookshelf?

Boring ones. I have The Secret, Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad) Napoleon Hill (Think Rich) and a renovation guide to large homes.

What’s your favorite quote or scene from your books?

That’s like choosing a favourite child. There are many but I love the scene in the shower with Tess and Q in Monsters in the Dark.

If your couple’s relationship had a theme song, what would it be?

Um, again, I’m not sure. Their emotional growth encaptures so many theme songs J I kinda suck at this, I know.

Tell us about the cover process. Is this what you had in mind?

Yes, completely. I love an artist that can pluck the idea from your head and make it a reality.

If your book was being made into a movie, who would you include in your dream cast?

I’m going to suck on this question too. I honestly don’t know. My characters are unique in my head, so I don’t see them as anyone else. I know if it was ever made into a movie though, whoever was cast would do a great job.

Where do you find inspiration for you writing? Do you use real people/places as a foundation?

Yes and no. I tend to get random plot ideas while driving or in the shower. I don’t really use outside influences but let the character guide me to the next chapter etc.

Do you have any hobbies or activities that you enjoy outside of writing?

Yes, buying real estate and traveling.

Would the 10 year-old version of yourself kick your butt or praise you for what you’ve accomplished in life?

Praise me. I think I’ve been very lucky and happy with my life so far.

Thanks so much, Pepper, for the interview!

Thanks so much for having me!!

Author Interview + Giveaway: Anything for You by Kristan Higgins

Happy Release Day to Kristan Higgins – Anything for You is live! I have Kristan here today on Booklovers For Life to talk about her newest release. Also make sure to check below to enter to win a paperback ARC of Anything for You!

Author Interview: Kristan Higgins, author of ANYTHING FOR YOU

What makes Connor and Jessica different from your previous main characters?

Ooh, great question! Jessica is my first bad-girl heroine. She comes from a rough and gritty background, she slept around in high school (though not for the reasons you might think) and she’s not looking for marriage and kids. She’s fierce and independent and utterly selfless when it comes to her brother.

Connor…he’s a bit of a dichotomy in that he seems grumpy and tough on the outside, but he’s helpless where Jess is concerned. He’s been in love with her all his life, but he can’t seem to get their relationship where he wants it. And I love that he’s a twin, because his sister has a window into his head, and vice versa. Their relationship was a blast to write.

Who was your favorite character to write about in Anything for You and why?

I loved writing Connor—the big softy side of him, when he’s cooking or with his little sister, Savannah. I also loved giving Pru another side; she’s been in the Blue Heron books before, but in this story, she’s Jessica’s best friend. It was nice to show another side of her. And I loved writing Marcy, the pain-in-the-butt coworker. We all know someone exactly like her!

Was there anything that surprised you while you were writing Anything for You?

I was surprised by how much I loved Jess. She’d always been in the series as a secondary character, and her seeds were already planted. But once I started writing the book and saw how good she was, how brave and how much she carried, I kind of fell in love with her, just like Connor did.

Did you have to do any research for Anything for You?

Yep! I had to research the world of cooking; I love to eat, but not to cook. I researched the cause and effects of Davey’s special needs and what he would and wouldn’t be able to handle and why. In general, there’s almost never something I state in a book that I haven’t fact-checked. It’s one of my favorite parts of writing…all the things I get to learn.

What did you love most about writing Anything for You?

How much Connor and Jess love each other. They’re both such decent people, and their history goes way back. Their story is written in the stars, so to speak; they just have to figure out how to get there. It’s not easy, but it sure is worth it.

Thank you so much for the interview, Kristan!

Before you get down on bended knee… 

…you should be pretty darn sure the answer will be yes. For ten years, Connor O’Rourke has been waiting for Jessica Dunn to take their on-again, off-again relationship public, and he thinks the time has come. His restaurant is thriving, she’s got her dream job at Blue Heron Vineyard—it’s the perfect time to get married.

When he pops the question, however, her answer is a fond but firm no. If it ain’t broke, why fix it? Jess has her hands full with her younger brother, who’s now living with her full-time, and a great career after years of waitressing. What she and Connor have is perfect: friends with an excellent benefits package. Besides, with her difficult past (and reputation), she’s positive married life isn’t for her.

But this time, Connor says it’s all or nothing. If she doesn’t want to marry him, he’ll find someone who does. Easier said than done, given that he’s never loved anyone but her. And maybe Jessica isn’t quite as sure as she thinks…
