Author- Kristen Callihan

Genre: Romance

Release Date: June 6th

blurb

Libby

I found Killian drunk and sprawled out on my lawn like some lost prince. With the face of a god and the arrogance to match, the pest won’t leave. Sexy, charming, and just a little bit dirty, he’s slowly wearing me down, making me crave more.

He could be mine if I dare to claim him. Problem is, the world thinks he’s theirs. How do you keep an idol when everyone is intent on taking him away?

Killian

As lead singer for the biggest rock band in the world, I lived a life of dreams. It all fell apart with one fateful decision. Now everything is in shambles.

Until Liberty. She’s grouchy, a recluse—and kind of cute. Scratch that. When I get my hands on her, she is scorching hot and more addictive than all the fans who’ve screamed my name.

The world is clamoring for me to get back on stage, but I’m not willing to leave her. I’ve got to find away to coax the hermit from her shell and keep her with me. Because, with Libby, everything has changed. Everything.

Q&A with Sarina Bowen!

qasarina

I had the opportunity to ask Sarina Bowen a few questions, and yes, I’m *still* fangirling over it. Guys, I hope you enjoy this as much as I do! And don’t forget to scroll down for another look at Bittersweet, out June 14th. You don’t want to miss out on the chance to swoon over Griff, trust me!

Q: I have to start off with one of my favorite aspects of Bittersweet– the delicious, mouthwatering food that Audrey prepares. Did you use any recipes to inspire those dishes? If so, do you have any plans to share them?

SB: I hope to share some of Audrey’s hits! I’ll do the cherry bbq sauce as soon as my own cherry tree is bearing. 🙂

Q:  It’s safe to say that Audrey knows her way around the kitchen. Do you personally enjoy cooking?

SB: Yes! And here’s a secret–before I wrote romance, I was a food writer. Shh!

Q: There is great detail about farming, crops, cider making, and the business side of things-how did you go about researching everything?

SB:There are lots of wonderful cidermakers where I live, so I tasted my way through the research.

Q: Do you have any experience with farming?

SB: We have 52 fruit trees and some chickens. I live down the road from sheep, cows, goats and horses. You can’t turn around without bumping into a farm, here.

Q: What is your favorite thing about living in Vermont?

SB: Skiing! And beards. And fresh air.

Q: I have to say, I just adored Griff’s family. Aside from Griff and Audrey, who was your favorite character to write?

SB: I have a soft spot in my heart for Zach.

Q: With all the hard cider talk in the book, it made me wonder: What type of beverage would represent Griff’s, Jude’s and Zach’s personalities?

SB: Griff is a cider man. Jude drinks gingerale these days but in STEADFAST he buys Zach a case of snooty Vermont beer. You’ll see!

Q: I’m still swooning over Griff and Audrey- will they make an appearance in Steadfast?

SB: Absofreakinglutely!

Thanks again Sarina for your time! 🙂

bittersweetn

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.

Up In Flames by Abbi Glines- June 28th

Find on Goodreads!

Spoiled. Selfish. Rich girl. Villain. Slut.

As the Prada-clad bad girl of Rosemary Beach, Nan Dillon has been called every vile name under the hot summer sun. Some of her reputation is deserved—she’s never had to worry about anything but maintaining her perfect figure and splitting Daddy’s private jet with her brother, Rush.

But Nan is far from happy. Rush has another kid on the way and doesn’t have time to catch up with his sister. Grant, the last guy she truly cared about, chose to be with her half-sister, Harlow, instead of her. And Harlow, who has never gotten over the way Nan treated her when she first moved to town, remains distant.

So when Major asks her out, she jumps at the chance to date the gorgeous charmer. Though she doesn’t know much about the sweet-talking Texan, and though it’s clear he doesn’t want to be exclusive, dating him beats hanging out with vapid socialites or watching Netflix alone at home.

For a while, Nan deals with Major’s playboy ways, but after he burns her one too many times, she takes off for an impromptu wild weekend in Vegas. There, she meets Gannon, a darkly seductive and oh-so-dangerous businessman who knows exactly how to handle her.

With Major asking for a second chance and Gannon haunting her dreams, Nan has to decide who to give her heart to. But what she doesn’t realize is that these players are involved in a much bigger game—and they’re already two moves ahead of her.
