{Blog Tour} Winning Me Over by Amber Garza


Winning Me Over

Synopsis:


It’s a typical boring night at work when I first meet the mysterious and sexy Colt Lancaster. Minutes after he leaves, I’m robbed at gunpoint by a masked man.
I suspect that the two events are related.
No matter how hard Colt tries to convince me that it was all just a coincidence, my gut tells me otherwise. However, the more I get to know him the more I want to believe him. Just when he’s about to win me over, a condemning secret from his past is exposed. 
Then again, everyone deserves a second chance. Don’t they?


Pick up this book at: AMAZON

Excerpt:

"What's up? You didn't get enough of me earlier?"

"Nope. Not at all," I say honestly.

"It's the tongue bar, isn't it?"

"You got me."

"Uh oh. So does this mean I have to worry about you mauling me at work to get another taste of it? Because I have to warn you that I take my job very seriously."

"Says the guy who chased me around with a towel on his first day."

"I really think that says more about your training technique than my work ethic."

I giggle, so happy that we are bantering like this. "I hardly think that's true."

"Either way, I'm happy to give you a sampling of my tongue bar when you pick me up in the morning."


Author Interview:

Did you ever think you'd be a published author?
Yes. It's been my dream since I was in 2nd grade.

What are you working on currently?
-Title : Betray, Book 3 in the Delaney's Gift Series
-Date of Release: End of November/beginning of December
Do you ever write characters you hate?
Of course. Those are fun! I hated Sonya from Tripping Me Up, and Killian from the Delaney's Gift series. I also hated Tripp's dad from Tripping Me Up, and Jon from Winning Me Over. It helps to connect to the main character if you loathe one of their enemies.
Who is your favorite character that you've written?
It's a tie between Sam from the Delaney's Gift series and Colt from Winning Me Over. I love both of those boys so much!
What was your first published book? How do you feel about it now?
Prowl was my first published book. I like Prowl, but it's probably my least favorite book. I know that I've grown so much as an author, so I feel it's a little weak. But the storyline is one I really connected with, and it's probably my scariest book, so that's fun.
Where do you get the ideas for your books?
Everywhere. Sometimes an idea hits me in my sleep, sometimes during a conversation or while I'm reading a book or watching a movie. Other times I see or overhear something that sparks an idea.

Were there any scenes in them that were difficult for you to write?
Yes. Many. In Tripping Me Up, there were some scenes with his dad that were difficult. In Winning Me Over, my heart broke for Colt a couple of times. But the hardest book for me to write was ENGRAVED. The main character, Amy, has a past that mirrors my own and some of the scenes I ripped straight from my life. That was very therapeutic but also very hard.
Do you have a favorite genre to write?
I love writing contemporary romance, but I also love writing suspense, so I think it's a tie.
Is there a type of genre you refuse to write?
Yes. Erotica. I will never write that.
Do you prefer your books in print or e-book format?
I never thought I'd say this, but I love ebooks. They are just so convenient. However, there really is no better feeling than holding your paperback book in your hand.
