A Shot of Bourbon (The Bourbon Series #1)
By A.C. Land
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Young Adult
Release Date: March 29, 2016
Publisher: BookFish Books
In the little highway town of Bourbon, Missouri, deadly secrets lurk behind Southern charm.
Seventeen year old Charli Valentine didn’t expect to spend the last few weeks of summer break nursing a broken heart, icing a black eye, and watching her ex kiss another girl. Since being a good girl has gotten her nothing but heartache, Charli decides to give rebellion a try. She pigs out, drinks, and hangs with Luke Parker, the son of the infamous Bourbon Butcher.
But there’s more to Luke than meets the eye. His tough exterior and terrible dialect hide a good person despite his bad boy reputation. No matter how hard he tries to fight it, Luke is drawn to Charli’s innocence and finds her clumsiness too charming to resist. Though they’re from opposite sides of the tracks, neither can resist the magnetism drawing them together.
When Charli discovers a box in her mother’s closet, she pieces together the truth about Bourbon’s past and uncovers a deadly secret about her family. And once Luke learns of it, he vows to protect Charli no matter the cost.
Hi YA Book Divas! Thanks so much for hosting A Shot of Bourbon and me. I’ve done a fun little twist on the Character Bios and written them in the first person from each character’s POV.
Charlotte ‘Charli’ Valentine-
I’m what my best friend, Lonna, considers vertically challenged. I have dark hair and eyes and tan skin and I love bread (even though Mom says it makes me bloat). Oh wait, was I supposed to write about my personality?
Okay, um. I’m faithful. I would never tell any of Lonna’s secrets to anyone. I’ve had an insane crush on the same boy for…oh, I don’t know, ever. But he doesn’t really seem to notice me anymore. And now that he’s hanging all over someone else I’m not really sure what to do.
I live in a gated community, Camelot, on the north side of Bourbon. My parents live there too—my mom and step-dad, that is. I’ve always known Preston is my step-dad. But while he and mom are away on vacation this summer I have every intention of finding my real dad. Every girl deserves to know the truth.
I wouldn’t even be doing this bio garbage if Charli hadn’t talked me into it. I don’t talk right. Not because I can’t, but because talking slow keeps people from wanting to talk to me. I’m crabby and hard around to get along with. I settle disagreements with my fists because that gets things settled quicker. When I’m not playing football or at school, I work at Parker’s Garage, a family owned and operated auto shop on the south side of town. Since Mom died four years ago, I’ve been living with Midjey. He’s sort of my brother, but I hate calling the drug addict family. Growing up in Bourbon, Missouri has been hell. Everyone knows me as the son of the Bourbon Butcher. Only I know the truth.
