Blog Tour: “Back to You” by Jessica Scott (Interview/Excerpt) + #Giveaway

Back-to-You-Blog-Tour

Welcome to Book Lovin’ Mamas virtual stop on Jessica Scott’s Back to You (Paperback) Blog Tour brought to you by Grand Central Publishing.

Interview

1. Tell us a little bit about Back to You, and why readers should definitely check it out?

Jessica ScottBack to You was by far my most difficult book to write. I lost track of how many times I rewrote it, but I knew after getting my editor’s comments that things were going to be okay. It’s a story about redemption and about learning to love again despite having some pretty tough obstacles to overcome. Everyone deserves a second chance.

2. What was the hardest scene to write in Back to You? (of course without giving too much away)

There’s a scene late in the book where a Really Bad Thing happens and Trent is in a dark place. A lot in that scene is really, really personal so it was really tough to figure out what needed to go on the page and what I could cut out.

3. How much of your Army experience goes into your books, especially for Back to You? (By the way, thank you for your service. You truly are an inspiration)

A lot. I wanted to tell stories about soldiers on the home front that didn’t involve Navy SEALs or Special Forces. I wanted to tell the stories about the Everyman and Everywoman as they came home. So that’s my inspiration for my stories, if that makes sense.

4. Laura and Trent’s story is definitely one of my favorites in the Coming Home series. They get a second chance at love, but you didn’t make it easy for them. Who was more difficult to write when you were writing Back to You?

In the town of Piedmont Pointe, where paranormal is the norm, a girl can easily get herself in over her head with a single wrong move. Unfortunately for Olivia Adams, she’s about to make several.

Starting over is never easy, but it seemed like the only option to Olivia. The decision to turn her back on the Guild of Witch Hunters, the very group she devoted her entire life to, was one of the hardest things she ever did. It meant leaving her family, her friends, and her old identity behind forever. Coming to terms with what caused her to abandon her duties in the first place was even harder.

While trying to lay low and stay off the Guild’s radar, Olivia finds herself thrust back into her old ways after unknowingly interrupting an assassination hit on a powerful witch. What follows is the last thing she ever thought she’d agree to do—protect the very thing she was groomed to hunt.

To complicate things even further, Olivia begins to develop feelings for a tattoo artist who also happens to be half warlock, and no matter how hard she tries to fight it, she can’t resist her inescapable draw to him. Olivia’s forbidden relationship isn’t her only issue though, because once the mystery behind the assassination attempt starts to unravel, she’s forced to choose sides when the loyalties still tied to her past life are tested again.

So much for the idea of a fresh start.

Genre: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance

Goodreads

Join FBI Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong.
She’s a Siren. He’s a Werewolf.
Their mission is redemption.


Emma Monroe is a Fallen Siren, cursed by the gods and banished to Earth for her failure to prevent the kidnapping of Persephone. She’s had many names and many lives, but only one mission: redemption. Now she works for the FBI and is on temporary assignment in Charleston. Solving this next missing persons case could be the key to ending her ancient curse—unless the temptation that’s her new partner gets in the way.

Zack Armstrong is a Werewolf. Tall, dark, and dangerous, he currently works for one of the bureau’s elite Child Abduction Rapid Deployment teams. In many respects the man is every bit as mysterious as his secret and perilous past. But there are two things he’s certain about, that he’s going to get his man and his woman.

When Zack finds himself suddenly shy a partner and a third child goes missing in Charleston, Emma goes from consultant to CARD team member in the space of a few hours. The abductions of the first two boys ended in murder, an outcome that neither Zack nor Emma can abide. As they race against time to track down the kidnapper and rescue the latest victim, they find themselves fighting something just as treacherous—a growing attraction that can’t be ignored or denied.

Jessica Stone has her life in perfect order until her perfectly boring boyfriend Brett puts things in perspective. So when she receives a call to action from her heartbroken best friend Cassie, she ditches her plans for Winter Break in gloomy Olympic Falls and sets off to Mexico for some fun in the sun.

Determined to use her oceanview to prep for her MCATS, she doesn’t plan to run into anyone from Olympic State, least of all the cute communications prof she’s been crushing on for a year. When he unexpectedly saves the day, the two are thrown together in a distinctly extracurricular activity.

Roman Markson doesn’t expect to run into anyone he knows from Olympic Falls while visiting his family in Puerto Vallarta, especially not a former student. Although Jess Stone has a way of catching men’s attention, a relationship with her is strictly off-limits. However, the rules feel less strict in Mexico, so they agree to a plan: one week in paradise and nothing more.

But avoiding each other back on campus is harder than they anticipated, especially when they can’t stay away from one another. Neither is sure what they have to learn—and lose—before life teaches them a lesson they’ll never forget.
