Interview and Review: Passion Creek by Avery Flynn

I’d like to welcome Avery Flynn today.  She is currently promoting her new book, Passion Creek.  Be sure to click on the giveaway after my review of this awesome suspenseful romance.

Thank you for stopping by today Ms. Flynn. 

Thank you so much for having me over at your place today!

Your alarm clock goes off at 5 a.m., what do you do next?

If my alarm went off at 5 a.m. I would still hit snooze about twelve times before I even realized what I was doing. I am a really hard sleeper – as in I slept through a tornado once – so getting up in the morning is hellish. A roommate in college once threatened to kill me if I hit snooze one more time. I couldn’t even hold it against her because I am that bad about getting up.

What do you write and what is it about that genre that calls out to you?

I write steamy romantic suspense with a sense of humor. I can’t imagine writing anything else. Man, I love the heart-pounding intensity of mixing suspense, humor and sex into one fast-paced, thrill-a-minute ride. It’s what I like to read and what I love to write.

What is it about your current hero that is crush worthy?

Picture Indiana Jones with washboard abs and a bit of a cranky attitude and you have Sam Layton. He is so crush worthy. Damn, he’s really yummy – don’t tell my husband I said that.

Why would a reader want to be best friends with your latest heroine?

You know those friends that you have who always have your back, make you laugh when you need it, tell you to suck it up when you deserve it and would bring you Ben & Jerry’s and a copy of Bridget Jones’ Diary in times of need? That’s Josie Winarksy. Plus she drinks my favorite drink: a vodka gimlet. 🙂

Tell us a little about Passion Creek.

Uptight history professor Sam Layton may have the abs of a movie action hero, but he stopped

believing in the joy of adventure a long time ago. However, when a one-night stand with a tattooed bombshell leads to a treasure map for the long-buried Rebecca’s Bounty, the call to action is too strong to ignore.

All Las Vegas cocktail waitress Josie Winarsky wants to do is paint. But when she lands smack dab in the middle in a mob plot, she has to push aside her dreams to find a treasure in Dry Creek,

Nebraska and save her family from harm. With Sam at her side and a Vegas loan shark on her tail, the treasure she finds turn out to be much more valuable than emeralds and rubies.

Avery Flynn has written a wonderful suspenseful romance.  She pulls you into a world of intrigue and swirls in a lot of love and romance.  Passion Creek begins in the hot spot of Las Vegas and ends in the small town of Dry Creek Nebraska.  From the beginning when you meet waitress Josie Winarsky you love her character.  She is intelligent, sexy and wise ass.  She is a phenomenal heroine.  After meeting Josie we soon meet Sam Layton.  A very hunky history professor.  With the picture that Avery Flynn paints of Sam I don’t blame Josie for jumping right into his bed.

Passion Creek brings treasure hunting and hot sex together in a phenomenal story.  I read this book in one day because I couldn’t put it down.  Josie and Sam have such wonderful chemistry that the story just took on a natural feel.  The only thing I wish there had been more of was of the Layton family.  They were on the perifary of the story, but I would have liked to have met more of them.  I feel now I need to read the other two books in this series.  I definitely recommend reading Passion Creek.  But, one warning I hope you have a husband, a boyfriend or a handy little friend because you will definitely be very hot and bothered after reading this book.  🙂

I’d like to thank Avery Flynn for stopping by today and Promotional Book Tours for allowing me to host today’s spot.  For more information about Avery Flynn and Passion Creek be sure to click on the links below.  You can also check out Passion Creek at Barnes and Noble,  Amazon and any other book retailer.
