Eva dodges the fans, media, and gossip that follow her supermodel mom and rock star family members by wearing disguises. After an aimless gap year, she struggles to figure out what she wants from life. She moves in with her famous guitar god brother in Austin while he recovers from a drunken stage stunt accident and tries to stay sober. When a hot Texas cowboy named Alex takes Eva by surprise, she risks her safety and security of anonymity by letting him into her unconventional life.

Alex is captivated by Eva and promises to protect her privacy. Yet he has a secret of his own—the fling he had with an older woman is fraught with scandalous potential for him and now Eva. He broke free of that mistake months ago, or so he thought. As things heat up with Eva, his old flame returns and won’t leave him alone.

Just when Alex thinks he has the reins on the situation, his ex teams up with a gossip reporter hell-bent on invading Eva’s privacy. The resulting exposé, with a sly spin on a recent encounter with his ex, is Alex’s worst nightmare, and Eva’s unsure what to believe. Can she face the world with Alex at her side or will she return into hiding?

Thanks to author Tonya Preece and LSBBT for a complimentary copy of Whiskey On Our Shoes.

Eva is the daughter of supermodel/rock royalty parents, and her much older brother is a guitar god. But Eva has yet to figure out who she is. Alex is a college student from a sleepy rural town. When they meet, sparks fly, but both have secrets they are trying to keep. Can they trust each other or will their past tear them apart? 

Whiskey On Our Shoes is a fun, YA read with pleny of glitz and glamour and down home country life. There’s a lot crammed into the story. Eva has a troubled relationship with her mother and her brother is a backsliding alcoholic who she is trying to keep sober. Alex, a college student, is stalked by an ex-girlfriend who threatens his future happiness. He also has his share of family drama. Throw in a gossip columnist who is determined to out Eva at any cost and you’ve got a great story. 

Through their relationship, both Eva and Alex are exposed to familial relationships and lifestyles foreign to each. It was sweet to see them tackle the worst and find the best in each. The Texas setting was a blast and Austin is a great city for this story. 

I recommend this YA romance to those who enjoy a good romance with a Texas twist.
