Julie Prestsater - Straddling the Edge Character Love & Giveaway

Julie is a high school teacher by day, and a writer by night. She writes both young adult and adult romances. When she's not writing, she can be found out and about with her family, reading, and watching football. As a reading intervention teacher, she prides herself on matching her students with great books to encourage them to become life-long readers.

Connect with Julie Prestsater:

Summer McGallian … the scandalous home wrecker from Against the Wall and Between The Sheets. The one who stole her co-worker’s fiancĂ©, the other woman, the one people whisper about and stay away from. Only for Summer, things aren't always as they appear and she knows that better than anyone. She hasn’t been herself since she was in high school, when life was less complicated and relationships weren’t about making compromises to land the guy. When her heart is broken, there's only one thing left for her to do … prove she isn't who everyone thinks she is. And maybe, just maybe, she can get back to being comfortable in her own skin again, without input from a man. But when she encounters Sexy Guy, Dean Michaels, everything Summer has ever known about the opposite sex is about to change.

Dean Michaels knew he’d seen her somewhere before. What he never imagined was that the gorgeous woman in a baseball cap and hooded sweatshirt tossing back a beer in his favorite spot could be Summer McGallian—the woman who always looked like she’d stepped off the pages of a glamour magazine when he’d seen her from afar at work. And to make matters worse, she’s Chase Marino’s ex, the one guy who gets under his skin like no other. If the thought of being someone’s bitch in jail wasn’t enough to scare him, he would’ve strangled that bastard years ago and tossed the body in the Mojave Desert. But forget about Chase … Dean knew from the moment he saw Summer’s sexy smile and heard her cute laugh, she had to be his. And he won't let anything get in the way of that.

The Against The Wall series isn’t just about steamy sex scenes and swoon-worthy romance, but about new friendships, undying love, and a ton of laughter. Enjoy the ride as you get to know and love Summer and Dean, just as you did Shelly and Matt, and Melissa and Tyler, in the final book, Straddling The Edge.

Straddling the Edge releases on April 29th.  Be sure to pick up your copy.

Today I’m lucky to have Julie Prestsater, author of The Against the Wall series stopping by.  As a reader, I know what I like if not love about characters.  I’m always curious to find out what the author themselves love about their characters.  Today Julie is going to tell us what she loves about Dean Michaels and Summer McGallian from her latest book, Straddling the Edge.  Welcome Julie to Read Your Writes Book Reviews.

5 Things I love about Dean Michaels …

1.  He’s hot.
2.  He’s very thoughtful and kind.
3.  He’s smokin’ hot.
4.  He’s a good listener and isn’t afraid to say how he feels.
5.  Did I mention he’s hot?

Um. Yeah. You mentioned he was hot... I guess that means Dean is SUPER H-O-T.

5 Things I love about Summer McGallian …

1.  She’s not who we thought she was.
2.  She’s adorably insecure.
3.  She’s funny.
4.  She’s loves beer and tossing her hair into a ponytail.
5.  She’s the perfect match for Dean.

Okay. So we know what you love about your latest couple. What makes a good hero and heroine in your opinion?
A good hero and heroine challenge each other.  They have fun together doing everyday things.  They know each other well and love to do things for each other, making those who are reading ooh and aww like giddy school girls.  And, of course, they have passion.

Okay. I'm smiling like crazy now... Thank you Julie for stopping by.
