Blog Tour + #Giveaway: The Lucky One by Sylvie Stewart @sylvie_stewart_ @XpressoTours

The Lucky One
Sylvie Stewart
(A Carolina Connections Novel)
Publication date: May 11th 2017
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

When your luck runs out, do you run away—or do you stay and fight?

Let’s get one thing straight. I am not your typical girl. Sure I’ve got all the parts, but I’ve been a stubborn, irreverent tomboy since the womb, as my Irish father would proudly attest. Despite my Irish blood, I’ve had a bit of bad luck here and there—I recently trusted the wrong guy and got derailed in my professional pursuits. But I’ve bounced back. With my shields firmly in place, I thought nothing, or no one, could touch me again. Until he did. And he just might make this tomboy do the girliest thing in the world—fall head over heels in love. Of all the damn luck…

I’m a pretty lucky guy. I have a phenomenal family, a career I love, and I’m building a brand-new life back in my hometown. And, not to be a jerk about it, but I do more than all right with the ladies. Everything’s been going according to plan—like I said, I’m a lucky guy.

That was, until my luck ran out.

Until I met the girl I call “Irish.”

Irony can go kiss my a$$.

Sylvie just won the National Indie Excellence Award for Romantic Comedy!

Interview with Sylvie Stewart

1. What inspired you to write The Lucky One?

Bailey just had to have her own story. She’s a stubborn tomboy and I thought it was perfect to give her a shot at a HEA of her own. I’m always inspired by songs, and I knew the title of this book before I even started writing it. I’m a total sucker for Loggins and Messina’s Danny’s Song, the first line of which is “People smile and tell me I’m the lucky one.” It was fate!

2. Can you tell us a little bit about the next books in the Carolina Connections series or what you have planned for the future?

Right now, I’m working on the fourth romantic comedy in the series. This time, it’s Gavin’s turn to find love in The Game. He’s had a bit of a struggle adjusting to life as a true adult, but now he’s on the right track and ready for a relationship. The object of his affection, Emerson, is several years older and not interested in becoming involved with a guy known to his friends as “Junior.” It’s fun watching him try to convince her to give him a chance and seeing her struggle with her white-knuckle control of every aspect of her life.

3. Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in The Lucky One?

Bailey is an Irish daddy’s girl and a tomboy through and through. She’s got trust issues and her self-confidence has taken a hit. Jake is an easy-going guy who seems to have everything going his way. He’s recently moved back home to be closer to his family, and an unexpected encounter with Bailey takes him off guard. The two have awesome chemistry and banter, as well as a sweetness that’s unexpected.

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

This is such a hard question to answer because I have a different go-to author for all my various moods. I will say the one author whose books I always pre-order without even needing to read the blurb is Kristen Ashley. She hits me in the gut or the funny bone every time. She’s got enough variety that she’ll fit just about any mood I’m in.

5. 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 love to spend a day in any of Jane Austen’s books. But just one day – lol. I don’t think I could handle the expected role of women at that time for any longer than that. And all those undergarments—please! Then I’d probably want to hang out in Hollywood in the forties. Of course, I’d have to be connected so I could go to the industry parties and meet all the fabulous stars from back in the day.

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

We just have a lizard. He came along when I was writing The Lucky One and he inspired the first scene in the book!

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