Q&A with Sasha Summers, author of Jace

Hello Sunnies!
The lovely Sasha Summers has agreed to join us for a Q&A after my bookclub read her book last month. 
Here it is:

Q&A with Sasha Summers!

-  When did you start writing? Was it a hobby at first or did you always wanted to be a writer?
I've been writing since I was young - my first play was for Girl Scouts many, many--many--years ago. I didn't start taking it seriously until about 2012. After that, it was my everything.  

- When you are not writing what genre do you enjoy reading? And do you have a ’go-to’ author?
I read EVERYTHING, honestly. For romance, I love Julia Quinn and Julia London, Jodi Thomas, and Sophie Kinsella. If I hear chatter or a bunch of great reviews, I'll buy the book. I just finished Meg & Jo by Virginia Kantra and really enjoyed it!  

- What was the inspiration behind Jace? 
I'm married to a cowboy who often sings classic country while he's working, so I already had a soft spot for a singing cowboy hero but I'm not sure I would have written the book if a publisher hadn't asked me to write it. I'm so glad they did. I just love the Kings.  

- Were any of the characters inspired by someone in real life?

I'm a visual person, so I do have a Pinterest board. Michael Ray is a country singer and, to me, he was Jace. I was bummed when his tattoos didn't make it onto the cover! Tim McGraw is definitely Hank!   


- What was your favorite scene to write?

This is a tough one. I love the siblng scenes - they were so real to me. But the tension between Jace and Krystal was always so strong. I do love the scene on the airplane, when she sits with him. And, of course, the first night they spend together was pretty exciting to write too!  


- Do you have any more books coming out this year? 

Accidentally Family came out at the beginning of June. It's a multi-viewpoint family sage I'm super proud of. I had Dog Patch Sweethearts out in February and in September Pumpkin Patch Sweethearts will release. I also have something secret coming out in December. Shhh! ;) Sadly, Kings #2 - Song for a Cowboy - won't be out until January! I know, so so far away.   


Thank you so much for reading Jace. 
Take care, stay safe & healthy,

Sasha

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s
