I write all my books with music. It takes a while sometimes, especially if it’s new to me music for me to get into the groove. I have to learn the words or I’ll be too distracted trying to sing along. I have to listen until it becomes so familiar I can do so and not even realize it. I have to listen until it becomes little more than background noise.
My inspiration for this book, Justin, his favorite group at the time of writing was the country duo Sugarland. I listened to all their albums then focused on just two for the book. From my side, I listened to SHEDaisy. The title of the book came from a line in one of their songs.
The country music put me in the frame of mind to write about Texas cowboy and a pick-up truck. Some of the light flirty tunes added to the fun banter between Justin and Ella. Some of the ballads and sad twangy songs added to the tough choices.
Justin has had enough. Ella, the woman who healed his broken heart, has been cancelling on him for two months straight. Sure, she’s busy with her job, which has her traveling far and wide. But that never stopped her from sharing nights of trivia, long conversations and blazing hot sex—until now. Truth to tell, he misses their easy friendship, the way her sighs fill his ear as he fills her body.
What he can’t figure out is, what’s changed?
At work, Ella finds it easy to talk to rooms full of strangers. Once back at her lonely apartment, though, she’s back to her painfully shy self—until Justin. Their chance meeting grew over the months into a year-long affair, but she can’t shake the feeling that rejection and pain are just around the corner. Best thing to do? End it now, before their intimacy digs too deep.
Suddenly he’s at her door with a length of neon-green rope and a naughty proposition, daring her to say no. Just how good could it be? There’s only one way to find out…
Warning: The sheets are tangled, the hat is crumpled, and the jeans are worn low on the hips. The cowboy is hot, determined, and helpless in the face of bunny slippers. Readers may need extra batteries to get this one out of their system.
There are 8 stops on this blog tour, the final one being my own blog. One commentor from each stop on the tour will be chosen for presents and giveaways. There will be everything from signed copies of books to a signed black and white poster to rope and coffee bowls.
