I am so excited to be celebrating the release of Tessa Bailey’s TOO HARD TO FORGET with this Release Week Blitz! I’ve got all of the details about this amazing book, plus an exclusive Q&A with the Queen Tessa Bailey herself! Sit back and enjoy!
About TOO HARD TO FORGET:
The third book in New York Times bestselling author Tessa Bailey’s Romancing the Clarksons series about four siblings on a cross-country road trip, perfect for fans of Gena Showalter and Julie James!
This time, she’s calling the shots.
Peggy Clarkson is returning to her alma mater with one goal in mind: confront Elliott Brooks, the man who ruined her for all others, and remind him of what he’s been missing. Even after three years, seeing him again is like a punch in the gut, but Peggy’s determined to stick to her plan. Maybe then, once she has the upper hand, she’ll finally be able to move on.
In the years since Peggy left Cincinnati, Elliott has kept his focus on football. No distractions and no complications. But when Peggy walks back onto his practice field and into his life, he knows she could unravel everything in his carefully controlled world. Because the girl who was hard to forget is now a woman impossible to resist.
Q&A with Tessa Bailey!
Describe yourself in five words.
Stubborn, driven, skeptical, emotional, buzzed.
What is the best piece of advice you have ever received in your writing career?
It wasn’t advice that was given to me directly, but I read a quote from Nora Roberts once that I remember whenever I feel like slacking off. Writing is a job. Sit down and do your job. I’m paraphrasing, but it went something like that. No excuses!
What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve looked up in the name of research – or what do you think the government has maybe flagged you for?
Oh man! What haven’t they flagged me for? This morning, I Googled, “Can you have sex with a broken rib?” That was pretty tame, but still funny!
Which actor/actress would you like to see playing your main characters from TOO HARD TO FORGET?
Ooooh. Well well well. When I think of Peggy, she’s like a blonde Ashley Greene. Very provocative with a lot of intelligence and secrets in her eyes. As for Elliott, this is going to be so hard, because no one really matches the picture of him in my head. But I think the closest I can come is a young Sean Bean. Circa 1998 when he acted in Ronin. Is that confusing enough? I might be persuaded to cast a young Christopher Meloni, too.
What is an unknown fact or fun trivia about TOO HARD TO FORGET?
The hero, Elliott, was inspired by my real life crush on Baltimore Ravens coach, John Harbaugh. And when I told my editor, we realized she has a crush on him, too. So we were both super excited for this book to roll around.
About Tessa Bailey:
Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove cross-country to New York City in under four days. Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend, and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.
She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
