Virtual Tour: A Shot with You by Teri Anne Stanley (Review + Interview + Giveaway)



Synopsis:

One more will never be enough…

Bourbon is in Brandon Morgan’s blood. His family owns the best bourbon brand in the country—or it will be with his marketing genius. And after meeting the fiery daughter of a tequila distillery owner, he’s never been more sure.

His barrels, her tequila. It’s a match made in heaven. But only if he can keep his hands off the owner’s daughter…and his secrets to himself.

Lesa Ruiz will do anything to keep Little Possum afloat, but one look at Brandon’s gorgeous dimples and Lesa knows two things for sure: forever is not in the cards with this man and he’s way too sexy to resist for long.

Well, three things… Brandon is hiding something, and she’ll need to get a lot closer to figure it out and save her family’s legacy.

Shots, anyone?

Interview with Teri Anne Stanley:

Describe yourself in five words or less.
Ahhh….creative, funny, kind, distractible, SQUIRREL!

Name one thing you won’t leave home without.
Other than my phone, right? Because no one leaves home without their phone. I’d have to say my planner. I started doing this Bullet Journal thing (google it, it’s cool!) last year and it’s really changed the way I stay on top of things. It’s got my calendar, my to-do list, and all the notes for all the things that usually clutter my purse and my brain. I finally invested in a nice gridded Moleskine hard back, and I love it!

Name three things on your desk right now.
An Ink Joy gel pen, a Fisher Scientific desk planner, and an Angry Mama Microwave cleaner (my day job boss gave me that as a ten-year work anniversary gift. Part of my job is herding college students through capstone research projects.)

What are some books that you enjoyed recently?
I just finished Tiffany Reisz’s Her Halloween Treat, which is a Harlequin Blaze. Totally fun. And I’m on third book of Juliana Stone’s Bad Boys of Crystal Lake series, which is sexy, and heart wrenching, and all around entertaining. 
I think I’ll read Jessica Lemmon’s Bad Boy Billionaire stories next. Her books are so funny and hot and emotional—that’s going to be my reward for finishing my next manuscript. All three books in a row. 

What do you like to do when you aren't writing?
I’m compulsively crafty. My office is half romance novels and author paraphernalia, and half auxiliary storage for Michaels Crafts. I especially love quilt making, knitting, and crochet, but I’ve tried everything. If you want to try a project, stop by. I’ve probably got the supplies. I can’t promise I can find them, but I bet I’ve got ‘em! 

What types of scenes are your most favorite to write? 
I like the funny ones. The sexy ones and emotional ones are great, but I’m always second guessing myself about them. Humor comes easy to me, which is fortunate, I think. Life is too hard not to be able to laugh about it as much as possible! 

Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?
Thanks for reading! There’s nothing cooler than meeting someone who has read and loved one of my books. I hope you have fun meeting Brandon and Lesa. Brandon is a really good guy, but he works too hard. Lesa brings him some desperately needed light and laughter and sexy times while he tries to show her what home really means.

***MY REVIEW***

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4 out of 5 stars

A Shot with You was another fun contemporary romance by Teri Anne Stanley. The story was everything I expect from an Entangled Lovestruck novel with its fun characters and adorable humorous, but still heartfelt romance. But as much as I loved this romance there were a couple of issues I had with the book causing me to give it 4 stars instead of 5. The main one being that Lesa wasn't as realistic a depiction of a Latina as I wanted her to be. It's not that it was a bad interpretation it's just that as a Latina myself I have really high expectations when it comes to Latino characters in romance novels. Other than that this book was great. The romance was especially on point. Nothing between Lesa and Brandon felt forced and the author created some really great chemistry between the two of them. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a cute contemporary romance and books like this are why I always get excited for books from this author!
