Cowboys & Kisses by Sasha Summers

Cowboys & Kisses(Teens of Black Falls Texas, #1) 

By Sasha Summers
 
Blurb: 

Allie had big plans for the future. Falling for a cowboy wasn’t part of it.

1. Get out of Black Falls Texas – aka Redneck Hell

(Graduation was eight months away. After that, she was out of there.)

2. Avoid Wyatt Holcomb at all costs.

(Except he was everywhere and kind of hard to ignore since he was hot-and a really nice guy.)

3. Avoid her parents.

(Shouldn’t be too hard to do since her father hated her and her mother pretended nothing was wrong.)

4. Stop thinking about Wyatt.

(Which would be a lot easier if he wasn’t so sweet… and he’d keep his shirt on.)

5. Decide what she really wants.

(Instead of holding onto the past and the guilt.)

Excerpt
Wyatt was carrying me. I
like this dream…
I’m glad I was sleeping. If I
wasn’t, I’d have to wake up. He’d put me down. I’d have to get pissy with
him—because that’s what I did, acted pissed. Right now, I didn’t want him to
put me down. And I was way too warm and comfortable to get pissy.
The front door opened. We were going inside, up the
stairs…
I burrowed in a little, to breathe against his chest. His really strong,
no-give chest. God, he smells good. Really
really good.
I turned, pressing my cheek against him. His heartbeat picked up…a lot.
And his arms tightened, holding me more surely. Something about that, the way
he was holding me, made my heart thump. Maybe I should admit I was awake?
I heard the floorboard
creak. We were almost to my room. Which was good. So why was I feeling panic?
Because he’ll put me
down and leave…
My hand gripped his shirt front. I needed…wanted to hold on to him, to
keep him here, protecting me, holding me. And for some new and bizarre reason,
I felt sort of…frantic about it. “Allie?” His voice was soft, his breath
stirring the air by my ear.
I didn’t say anything. What was I supposed to say? I’m awake but don’t put me down? You smell really good…and you feel
even better?
Yeah, that wouldn’t go over very well.
Or would it? What if he was cool with it? What if he stayed? Did I want
him to stay? I swallowed.
I was being lowered, slowly. I felt the muscles in his chest and arms and
shoulders move against me and felt…breathless and hot and confused and… I’m so in trouble.
My bed was soft beneath my
back, but before his arms slipped out from under me I opened my eyes.

Cowboys & Kisses Playlist

 

Thanks so much for having me on you blog to promote all things Cowboys & Kisses. I loved writing Allie and Wyatt’s first book – really tapping into my inner teenager. It’s been a while since i was young and in love, but this story helped me remember.

Because writing like a teenager was so important, I relied on music, movies, and images to keep me in the young adult frame of mind. And today, I thought I’d share some of the songs that really helped bring Allie and Wyatt to life.

First up – and one I had on repeat for several hours at a time – Everything has Changed by Ed Sheehan and Taylor Swift.

I loved the sweetness – the give and take between the guy and the girl. I don’t know why it resonated with me, but it did. It’s kind of the theme song for this book.

You can’t write a cowboy book without some cowboy songs. There were three I really loved:

1. Compass by Lady Antebellum

2. I Hold On by Dierks Bentley

3. Mine Would Be You by Blake Shelton

Last, but not least – this one conveyed exactly what Wyatt and Allie are to each other. It’s a gorgeous song and the words are just perfect. ‘I will be there, standing by your side…’ – love it!  Mountains by Odessa Rose:
