Blog Tour & Giveaway: Bittersweet by Sunday James...

New Adult Contemporary
Released October 2014

When a TV production company decides Dogwood, Virginia is the perfect location to shoot their new teen series Bittersweet, the town is abuzz with excitement. But twenty-one-year-old local girl Cathy Johnson has too much going on in her life to waste time being star-struck. Her mother walked out on the family when Cathy was a young girl and her brother Carl was barely out of diapers. She’s always felt a sense of responsibility to help raise him, and skipped college after graduation following her father Joe’s life-threatening heart attack. Now three years later, she works full-time in the family restaurant to help make ends meet. Life hasn’t exactly been peachy, but Cathy is OK with it. She loves her hometown, and doesn’t want some fancy TV show coming in and changing everything. To her, ‘bittersweet’ is just the word that sums up her love life after her relationship with her high school sweetheart ended in disaster. But since then she’s hardly had time to brush her hair, let alone think about romance – even the kind being played out in front of the cameras by twenty-something actors posing as teenagers. But all that changes for Cathy when charming, intense, impossibly sexy outsider Greg Moran arrives in Dogwood along with the Bittersweet cast and crew. She and the mysterious New Yorker have undeniable chemistry, but if Cathy thought she was guarded…? Greg blows hot (very, very hot) and cold with her romantically, leaving Cathy’s head in a spin. If she’s willing to drop her emotional walls, why can’t he? What is it in Greg’s past – or present – that means he’s keeping her at arm’s length? One thing’s for certain: Cathy and Greg are magnetically drawn to one another, but they’ll have to fight to keep their relationship from turning sour.

If it’s hard to let go of the past, falling in love can be BITTERSWEET…

Greg’s eyes close, and then slowly—painfully, torturously slowly—I feel his mouth edge closer, his hands tilting my head, his body pressing into mine at a slight angle ... and then he’s kissing me. Lightly at first, his lips working over mine, top then bottom, like he’s tracing their shape. Then harder, pressing his mouth to mine, his tongue brushing the sensitive spot in the center of my bottom lip, then past it, moving deeper. I make a sort of whimpering noise in my throat, and his breath rushes out of his nose urgently—his lips moving faster, he lets his hands drop down so my own can slip up around his neck. His fingers edge inside my leather jacket, tracing my ribcage through the thin fabric of my T-shirt. My own hands are in his hair now, fingertips tickling the back of his neck, moving down, tracing his jaw as it works—A car horn honks outside suddenly and we break apart, coming up for air. I glance at the rear-view mirror in time to see the cab driver’s eyes flick away, and I bite my lip a little. It feels raw from Greg’s attention. I take a deep breath, but he speaks first. “I was trying not to do that all night,” he whispers, his hands still inside my jacket.
