Some of you might know (or not know) that I landed an amazing role as content editor for BookFish Books a few months back. Before that, I was their intern. One of the best parts about that position was reading submissions.
I'll never forget the day this book came in. I saw, I read the first three chapters, and just KNEW it was going to be amazing. Then the full manuscript came in. And I seriously was up until 2 A.M to finish because it was just. That. Good. And then guess what I did? I read it again two days later, and STILL couldn't put it down. For months that submission stuck with me. And then we signed it on, and then I got this amazing job, and then BAM! Guess what? I was assigned that very same submission as my book to content edit.
Well, today I have the pleasure of hosting the cover reveal for that book. Stepping back from my editorial role, and in as a reader, I have to say this is seriously one of THE best YA romances I have ever read. And I can't wait until the world gets to meet Charli and Luke on March 29th. You won't regret it. For sure.
Now...on to the reveal. :)
In the little highway town of Bourbon, Missouri, deadly secrets lurk behind Southern charm.
Seventeen year old Charli Valentine didn’t expect to spend the last few weeks of summer break nursing a broken heart, icing a black eye, and watching her ex kiss another girl. Since being a good girl has gotten her nothing but heartache, Charli decides to give rebellion a try. She pigs out, drinks, and hangs with Luke Parker, the son of the infamous Bourbon Butcher.
But there’s more to Luke than meets the eye. His tough exterior and terrible dialect hide a good person despite his bad boy reputation. No matter how hard he tries to fight it, Luke is drawn to Charli’s innocence and finds her clumsiness too charming to resist. Though they’re from opposite sides of the tracks, neither can resist the magnetism drawing them together.
When Charli discovers a box in her mother’s closet, she pieces together the truth about Bourbon’s past and uncovers a deadly secret about her family. And once Luke learns of it, he vows to protect Charli no matter the cost.
Everything about this cover IS this book. And once you read it, it'll be like OH. Oh, yes... I totally get it now.
