Whiskey on Our Shoes
Eva dodges the fans, media, and gossip that follow her supermodel mom and rock star family members by wearing disguises. After an aimless gap year, she struggles to figure out what she wants from life. She moves in with her famous guitar god brother in Austin while he recovers from a drunken stage stunt accident and tries to stay sober. When a hot Texas cowboy named Alex takes Eva by surprise, she risks her safety and security of anonymity by letting him into her unconventional life.
Alex is captivated by Eva and promises to protect her privacy. Yet he has a secret of his own—the fling he had with an older woman is fraught with scandalous potential for him and now Eva. He broke free of that mistake months ago, or so he thought. As things heat up with Eva, his old flame returns and won’t leave him alone.
Just when Alex thinks he has the reins on the situation, his ex teams up with a gossip reporter hell-bent on invading Eva’s privacy. The resulting exposé, with a sly spin on a recent encounter with his ex, is Alex’s worst nightmare, and Eva’s unsure what to believe. Can she face the world with Alex at her side or will she return into hiding?

Heat wave comes to Austin in the form of these two very likable characters trying to navigate a relationship in spite of their families, friends, and the paparazzi. A page-turning winner! ~ Darby Betancourt, Amazon
I was hooked in a matter of minutes! This book has everything, from a little bit of whimsy to a whole lot of authenticity, beautifully woven together into the most delightful storyline. The main characters truly came to life, but I also fell in love with the entire supporting cast. The ending had me in tears, but of the very best kind! I truly did not want this one to end. ~ Jill Siler, Goodreads
