About BOTTOMS UP:
Love best served shaken not stirred…one naughty drink at a time.
A bartender with a special talent for picking the perfect cocktail meets his match when down-on-her-luck Lexi walks into Bottoms Up. Well known for creating drinks with very naughty names, Justin whips up a cocktail especially for Lexi, hoping to ease the pain he sees in her soulful eyes.
With each sip Lexi realizes she’d much rather stay in Bottoms Up with the sexy, tattooed barman who seems to know just how to heal her broken heart.
Night after night, Lexi is drawn back to the bar to explore Justin’s list of naughty drink recipes in more detail–after hours. One deliciously dirty creation after another unleashes her extreme fantasies when he shows her how to let go of her inhibitions.
One tantalizing drink recipe at a time.
Miss Riki’s Review:
You guys, I loved this book!
It’s full of super sexy moments, but is not without some serious heart. Our heroine, Lexi, is having some really tough times. She’s lost the love of her life and just gotten out of a relationship with a very abusive man, and to top things off has lost her job. When she stumbles out of the hot Arizona heat into Bottoms Up Bar and meets sexy bartender Justin, all bets are off. This girl needs some Sexual Healing, like- pronto- and thankfully he has just the thing. (A drink….get your mind out of the gutter!)
But not too far out of the gutter, because in addition to the wild cocktail concoctions with seriously sexy names comes some seriously sexy behind the bar action. I loved Justin and Lexi together! They have off-the-charts chemistry, and the way he gives her a chance to remake her life and just falls for her little by little warmed my heart. These two are dynamite in bed, but there’s a sweetness to their relationship that is intriguing and lovely.
If you’re looking for a quick escape into a super sexy read- look no further. Bottoms Up is hot, hot, hot- but also emotionally fulfilling. You’ll adore this book.
Q&A With Kate Deveaux:
Can you tell us a little about your book?
Bottoms Up is a sizzling romance between a broken hearted heroine and a bartender who concocts cocktails with very naughty names at his bar. Through the sexy drinks Justin mixes for Lexi, he heals her broken heart as he teaches her how to make those dirty drinks by acting them out with her. Night after night. From ‘Pop My Cherry’ to ‘Sex On The Pool Table’ it’s one erotic lesson in lovemaking after another. Filled with dirty drink recipes, I hope you’ll enjoy this Naughty Cock Tale Book, Bottoms Up!
What types of scenes are your most favorite to write?
Hands down, I love to write the scenes where they characters reveal their vulnerabilities. In my stories these scenes are almost always the sex scenes. These scenes are the most intimate interaction between the hero and heroine. The explicit sexual descriptions and sensual tone are merely the vehicle that I hope transports my reader into the very moment when one character exposes their deepest fears, hopes, and expectations to their lover as the scene evolves. These scenes are thrilling and challenging to write, but so fun too!
If you could have dinner with any three authors (alive or dead), who would you choose and why?
Number one, I would want to have dinner with Charlotte Bronte. For me, she is one of the quintessential role models of an author writing about social conventions in both day-to-day life and romance. Number Two, Danielle Steele. Her prolific swathe of work over the past thirty years is not only remarkable, but inspiring to me as an author. She was one the first authors I ever read as a young adult and loved the scandalously sexy stories she told. I’ve been a fan ever since! Third, I’d love to meet Colleen McCullough. Thornbirds is one of my favorite books filled with sensual writing and the gut wrenching agony of social conventions and forbidden love.
What are you favorite types of stories to read?
I read contemporary fiction mostly. Romance, sexy and non, and general women’s fiction. I also enjoy reading biographies. I just finished ‘Victoria, The Queen’ by Julia Baird. An inspired read of the lesser known details of Victoria’s love affair with Albert and her robust desire for sexual pleasure and her humanity was delightful to read about. An empowered woman, Queen Victoria continues to inspire through Baird’s writings.
Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or purely all imagination?
I think all stories authors tell are hinged somewhere in experiences we may have had and people that we have met. These experiences cannot help seep into our writing. For myself, although some of the subject matter might be fantasy — or not, the reactions to the actions in the book are almost always something tangible that I can relate to from personal experience. I like to tell as story as if I am living it.
Can you tell us about your upcoming book?
My next book that is coming out soon is ‘Fit to Be Tied’ part of the Bimini Bound series. The rubenesque heroine, Liz, leaves behind her dreary Seattle office to attend a work outing in the Bahamas aboard the boss’s mega yacht. Liz quickly finds herself in the middle of a very sexy case of mistaken identity, with the added thrill of ménage romance when she is seduced by the sexy guest on board and his sidekick. A voyeuristic hero with a taste for bondage and ménage, Fit to Be Tied is a curvy romance full of mistaken identity and sexual fantasies that I hope will have you eager to hop on board!
