Y’all I’ve seen a couple of sneak peeks for Lia Riley’s Last First Kiss and I SOOOO can’t wait to get my hands on it. I think Annie and Sawyer may soon be one of my favorite romance couples.
And as a special treat, Ms Riley stopped by today to give us a little glimpse into how she gets in the mood to write. Enjoy!
Music inspires me as I write and it’s a common part of my process to set up a playlist. Below are some of the songs that helped me set a tone, get in the right headspace or just reminded me of Annie and Sawyer. Hope you enjoy!

Brightwater Series Book #1
by Lia Riley
Releasing June 23rd, 2015
New to Avon author Lia Riley makes a splash with her first sexy, hilarious book in the sizzling Brightwater series!
A kiss is just the beginning…
Pinterest Perfect. Or so Annie Carson’s life appears on her popular blog. Reality is… messier. Especially when it lands her back in one-cow town, Brightwater, California, and back in the path of the gorgeous six-foot-four reason she left. Sawyer Kane may fill out those wranglers, but she won’t be distracted from her task. Annie just needs the summer to spruce up and sell her family’s farm so she and her young son can start a new life in the big city. Simple, easy, perfect.
Sawyer has always regretted letting the first girl he loved slip away. He won’t make the same mistake twice, but can he convince beautiful, wary Annie to trust her heart again when she’s been given every reason not to? And as a single kiss turns to so much more, can Annie give up her idea of perfect for a forever that’s blissfully real.

“You name all those birds?”
“Oh sure. Constance, Shy, and Petunia are the Araucanas over there.” She pointed to the three white hens with impressive feathery ear tufts. “They’re the only ones that lay those pretty blue eggs. Over in the far corner are the Rhode Island Reds: Bixby, Big Mama, Miss Thing, Chatterbox, Honey, and Crazy. Then scratching in the back is Feather Foot, because, well, that’s obvious, and . . . what? Are you laughing at me?”
“You name your chickens.” God, she really was too fucking adorable for her own good.
“What, Mr. Funny—if you had a coop, you’re saying you wouldn’t name yours?”
“Sure I would.” He gave a shrug. “I’d call them all the same thing.”
“Oh yeah? What’s that? Chicken?”
Her lips twitched even as she sniffed. “That’s so not funny.”
“It’s a little funny.”
“Must be that Kane humor. I’m genetically immune.
Lia Riley writes offbeat New Adult and Contemporary Adult romance. After studying at the University of Montana-Missoula, she scoured the world armed only with a backpack, overconfidence and a terrible sense of direction. She counts shooting vodka with a Ukranian mechanic in Antarctica, sipping yerba mate with gauchos in Chile and swilling XXXX with stationhands in Outback Australia among her accomplishments.
A British literature fanatic at heart, Lia considers Mr. Darcy and Edward Rochester as her fictional boyfriends. Her very patient husband doesn’t mind. Much. When not torturing heroes (because c’mon, who doesn’t love a good tortured hero?), Lia herds unruly chickens, camps, beach combs, daydreams about future books, wades through a mile-high TBR pile and schemes yet another trip. Right now, Icelandic hot springs and Scottish castles sound mighty fine.
