IT'S ALL IN THE JEANS by Tory Richards (Review and Q&A)

IT'S ALL IN THE JEANS
Author: Tory Richards
Source: Author
*I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review*
  • Paperback: 210 pages
  • Publisher: Whiskey Creek Press (2008)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1603131639
  • ISBN-13: 978-1603131636
SYNOPSIS:

Logan Knight is staying with his grandfather while recuperating from an accident that killed his two best friends. He needs time to heal his body and his heart from the tragedy. Libby Turner is on a hell bent mission to keep her grandmother out of an assisted living facility, even if it means masquerading as a seventy-year-old woman.

From the moment the two meet sparks fly, and they can't keep their hands off each other. The only problem is, neither is looking for a relationship, so they come up with an outrageous solution. Can they stick to their plan of keeping their relationship strictly sexual, or do they give in to the overwhelming love that threatens to claim their hearts?

MY THOUGHTS:

What do you look for in a contemporary romance? A strong hero? A witty heroine? A little humor? Some suspense?

This book has all of that and then some! Including the sexy scenes! Logan is a strong and sexy hero that quickly falls in love with our heroine Libby. Libby is also a strong person but what captured me the most about her was her witty humor and love for her Grams. She would do anything to keep her Grams from having to move into a nursing home. So hse pretends to be a long time friend of Grams and dresses up as an old lady. She plays Reba around the retirement community and has the wittiest humor! On the weekends, she is Libby and quickly notices the grandson of the next door neighbor. He rescues her several times and is instantly captivated by him. The two fall in love and lust but both are trying to get over nasty breakups from before. That is where the suspense comes in. Both of their exes come back in the picture trying to cause havoc.

I loved the HEA ending in this book and I was sad to see the book end. It even has some unexpected endings for some of the other characters in the book with scenes that will leave you laughing and blushing at the same time! A great romantic read full of love, suspense, humor and the smoking hot sex! A book that will keep you interested until the end!

MY RATING:


Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
For Rereading!



Welcome Tory! To start off can you tell the readers a little about yourself?

Sure. I live in in a nice quiet retirement community in Florida with my soul mate and three crazy cats. I work days and at night I pen tales of suspense, humor and sizzling sex. Some day I'd like to try my hand at writing a vampire or werewolf romance but right now I mostly stick with contemporary. Seems like I've been writing all of my life but have only been published for a few years. My family encouraged me to submit to a publisher when they discovered my secret and read some of my stuff. Two months later I had my first contract and that book, "CUPID'S ARROW, was on the publisher's best sellers website for two consecutive months!

Can you tell us a little about your new or current releases?

THE COWBOY WAY was released in early 2009. It's the stormy romance between a rancher's daughter and his partner. Complicating things is arson, murder and a scorned ex-lover. Oh yeah, and an escaped convict out for revenge. His target... the rancher's daughter.


When your not writing, what kind of books do you like to read? Do you have any favorite authors that are must reads?

My all time favorite author is Katheleen E.Woodiwiss, and I just recently re-read THE WOLF AND THE DOVE. I was heart broken when she passed away. I don't have time to do a lot of reading but lately I've read a couple werewolf romances. I try to fit in short stories now and again.

What are 3 things that are "must haves" for you when you sit down to write a new book?

For me it's all about the atmosphere.Something good to drink, usually an iced coffee from McDonalds or a cup of Barnies Santa's White Christmas coffee. My jammies on. And time.

What are your favorite things to do in your downtime?

Spend time with my daughter, niece and granddaughter. Curl up on the sofa with my cats and watch a good movie or if it's raining, just listen to it. Put on soft music, light a candle and just sit and have a nice conversation with my hubby.

Where can we purchase your books?

Whiskey Creek Press Torrid and soon at The Wild Rose Press. I have a book coming out in 2010 with them. You can also find my books at Fictionwise, Amazon, All Romance eBooks, and Barnes and Nobles.

Do you have a blog or website that your readers can keep up with you and your books?

I sure do! My website is: www.toryrichards.com and my blog is: Romance with an Attitude

Thank you so much for joining us! Please come by again!

I have to admit to not usually being a reader of romance, but this book sounds great. Very sexy in a 'not that traditional' way.

It was great to be able to read the interview with the author Tory aswell.

Ill definitely give this book a go.
