Blog Tour + #Giveaway: Ninja Girl by Cookie O'Gorman @CookieOwrites @yaboundtourspr

Ninja Girl
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 30th 3017

Summary from Goodreads:

Seventeen-year-old Snow-Soon Lee kicks ass--literally. She teaches at her family-owned martial arts gym, The Academy, and cares more about training to be the next Bruce Lee than hooking up. In fact, Snow's never even been kissed. But when Girls Night rolls around, Snow decides to prove to her friends (and herself) that she's not just some boring tomboy. Impulsively, she kisses a hot stranger and even manages to escape his two security guards.

One stolen kiss…

Ash Stryker's senior year sucks. His politician father pulled him out of Chariot High, separating him from his championship-winning soccer team. Now he's stuck at a prissy private school with no friends, no team and no chance of being scouted. On top of that, thanks to the death threats his dad's received, Ash has a security tail aka professional babysitters. When the mystery girl from the movies shows up at his school, rappelling from the rafters, Ash knows one thing: he won't let her get away again.

One interesting job proposition…

After a seemingly random attack, Ash's mother surprises everyone. She hires Snow to be Ash's personal bodyguard until after the election. But can Snow's kick-ass skills hold up against the rising threats to Ash's family? More importantly, can Ash convince his ninja girl to screw ethics and kiss him again?

Opposites attract in this YA romance where a smooth talker meets his match in the tough girl who (literally) sweeps him off his feet. Moral of the story:

Sometimes even bad boys need a bodyguard.

Interview with Cookie O'Gorman

What inspired you to write NINJA GIRL?

Hi there!  I don't think this is typical, but I usually come up with a book title then go from there--and NINJA GIRL just seemed like a fantastic name for a book :).  Next, I thought about the plot.  I knew immediately it would be YA romance and that I wanted to do my twist on the typical bodyguard story.   In NINJA GIRL, a kickass seventeen-year-old girl is hired to be the bodyguard of a smooth-talking bad boy/good guy.  The result was a fun, girl-power, opposites-attract YA action romance that I love and hope readers will as well :).

Can you tell us a little bit about the next books in NINJA GIRL series or what you have planned for the future?

Yes, of course!  I have a couple of books planned.  One of them is already complete, and it's a YA that I love and wrote several years ago.  It's got mystery, humor and, of course, a good helping of romance.  I've also started a YA romance that features a character introduced in NINJA GIRL!

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in NINJA GIRL?

Absolutely, the main characters of NINJA GIRL are Snow and Ash.
Snow-Soon Lee: 17-year-old female, obsessed with Bruce Lee, martial arts lover, likes chick flicks, never been kissed.

 Ash Stryker: 17-year-old male, passionate about soccer, country music listener, likes girls that can kick his ass, an irresistible mix of cocky bad boy/charming good guy.

Opposites attract, and I just knew they would be a perfect match <3.

You know I think we all have a favorite author. Who is your favorite author and why?

My favorite author is J.K. Rowling because the Harry Potter books are what made me love reading.  She created a world with Harry, Ron, Hermione, Neville, Professor Snape and all of the wonderful characters at Hogwarts.  She gave me and all bookworms a magical place where good triumphs over evil and where there is nothing more powerful than love.

If you could time-travel would you travel to the future or the past? Where would you like to go and why would you like to visit this particular time period?

I would travel to the past.  I would go back to a time when my best friend and favorite person of all time was still alive and well.  I would spend as much time as possible with her, talking, laughing, watching movies, going to the bookstore, just being with her.  I would like to go back because I miss her every day and wish she was still here.

Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?

I do not currently have any pets--but I love, love, love dogs!  All dogs, every dog ever, they are all beautiful and wonderful.  Cats are cool, too.

Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit with us today.
