This Love by Nazarea Andrews (Interview)

Lexi: Our guest today released her debut YA dystopian romance in March, now she has released a NA romance...This Love. Know who she is? Welcome to the blog Nazarea Andrews!

You are in good company here, you love chocolate and books (if you love wine extra point), and you have an overgrown dog. I have to ask, what kind?

Nazarea: A Rhodesian Ridgeback!! I absolutely love her. My mom breeds them and she brought me Nala a few years ago on a visit. She’s a big baby. :)

Lexi: I love large furballs, they love when you come home and greet you with a kiss, then lay on your feet while you read. A woman’s best friend. What is one thing you love to have with you when you sit down to immerse yourself in a good book?

Nazarea: A blanket. I have this weird thing where, even in the middle of summer, I like to be under a blanket. So we keep the house super cold and random blankets around. 

Lexi: Have you, like so many other bookworms out there, fallen in love with the YA and NA genres? What was your first YA or NA that hooked you?

Nazarea: Easy by Tammara Webber was my gateway NA. Twilight was my YA intro. I looooove both categories so much and I’m so excited to see where NA goes, as readers want more than just contemporary romance. It’s super exciting. 

Lexi: This Love just may hook our dear readers, sweet summertime between semesters. There was never a professor that turned my head, too many brainy chemists I guess. But Atticus sounds like one professor every girl would love to have to stare at a few hours a week. Do you plan on sticking with the NA genre for a while? If you keep bringing us sexy professors....I sure hope you do!

Nazarea: I do!!! My next book, Beautiful Broken, is about Atticus’ best friend. Then we hop back into my dystopian world, but where Edge of the Falls was YA, Chasing the Wind definitely pushes into more mature themes and situations, so I’d classify it as NA. I really enjoy the freedom that NA lets me have—YA you can only explore so much before your pushing boundaries. But relationships—especially unorthoadox relationships. NA lets me do that, so I’m definitely looking forward to sharing some fun stories in the future. :)

Lexi: Thanks for stopping by for a few questions Nazarea! Fun to meet another emerging author! Good luck with This Love’s release!

Nazarea:  hank you so much for having me!!! :)




This Love by Nazarea Andrews
University of Branton, #1
June 2013
BOOK SUMMARY: 
She wants a summer job and a ride to a wedding. 
He wants an assistant and a distraction from the mess his life had become.
They didn't know they needed each other.
Avery Emili needs two grand. Two grand and a plane ticket--her sister is counting on her to get to Jamaica for her wedding. But the semester is over, and tutoring college freshman and high school students has dried up until the fall.
Atticus Grimes needs help--the messy split with his wife left the twenty-eight year old professor scrambling to keep things together as the semester winds down. Now he's got a research grant he has to actually do research for and all he wants to do is drown himself in a tall bottle of bourbon.
When Avery sees his ad for an assistant, all she's thinking is a summer job. But as they spend time together, in the office and out, both of them begin to realize something is there. Something that can't happen--he's a professor and she's a student. And both of them have histories, pasts that won’t let go. Can two broken people pulled apart by expectations find a way to be whole?
