NAked With Nazarea Andrews
Today we're getting NAked with Nazarea Andrews, author of This Love
Nazarea, who are you and what should we know about you in 50 words or less?
I’m a mom, wife, and book addict. I like reading happily ever afters, am shamelessly addicted to chocolate and think makeout scenes are probably the best thing in the world to write. Also—I live in the South and have a huge dog.
Which one: chocolate or bacon?
Chocolate. No question.
What is the name of your book and what is it about in 50 words or less?
THIS LOVE is about forbidden romance, beaches and second chances.
Tell us your main character's name and 3 adjectives that describe him/her. (If you have multiple main characters, do this for each).
Avery is ambitious, stubborn and down-to-earth. Atticus is sexy, a dreamer, and heartbroken.
Please share with us an excerpt of 150-200 words from your book.
I wave at the TA before I push out the door. My phone is buried in my purse, and I pause in the hallway of the history wing to dig it out. “Shit,” I mutter as two pens clatter to the floor. I seize my phone—I really need to downsize my purse—and crouch to grab my pens.
A pair of scuffed sneakers stop in front of me, stepping on my favorite red pen.
“Excuse me,” I grumble, reaching for it, and a husky laugh jerks my gaze up.
Atticus Grimes is standing in front of me, his eyes amused. He’s wearing faded jeans and a tight fitting concert t-shirt, his hair hanging in his eyes.
He looks like a sexy frat brother instead of a professor. Hell, if Brian looked half this good, I would have slept with him months ago.
“You gonna stay down there forever?” he asks, amusement lacing his rough voice.
