Saving It by Monica Murphy
Publication Date:  November 6, 2017
Publisher:  Entangled Teen Crush

Eden: Josh Evans and I have been best friends forever. He knows all my secrets, and I know all of his. So when he randomly asks me to help him lose his virginity, I sort of flip out. That’s a question that sends your mind to places you’ve seriously never considered before. Like, you know. Having sex. With your best friend. Except Josh doesn’t want to have sex with me—he wants me to help him find a girl. A nice girl who’s funny and smart and cute. Except he already knows a girl just like that…

Josh: Eden Sumner is my best friend. So of course she’d be the person to help me find my perfect match, so I can drop my V card before I head off to college. Except the more we search, the more I realize that maybe the right girl has been by my side all along. I don’t need Eden’s help in finding me a girl to love. I’m pretty sure I’m already in love with Eden. But now she thinks I’m only after one thing…with anyone but her.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book is what happens when American Pie meets Friends with Benefits. It contains two best friends, plenty of angst, and lots and lots of sex talk. Reading this might have you looking at your best friend in a different light!

Interview with Monica Murphy

What inspired you to write Saving It?

My editor sent a submission call out for a book with a theme similar to American Pie – she wanted it to be a book about friends losing their virginity. I knew the moment I saw the idea, I wanted to write it. But that was a couple of years ago and I was swamped with deadlines so I didn’t have the time. Fast forward to last year and my editor sent out that submission call again. By then, I had the first chapter of Josh and Eden’s story so I sent it to her and she acquired it quick. So excited reads get to know Josh and Eden!

Can you tell us a little bit about what you have planned for the future?

I have a YA thriller coming out January 2nd – PRETTY DEAD GIRLS is about someone killing the popular girls at a private high school, and my main character, Penelope, is afraid she’s going to be next. There’s murder and a hot boy, a winning combination. LOL

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in SAVING IT?

Josh and Eden are best friends and have been since eighth grade. They know all of each other’s qualities, both good and bad. When he asks her to find him a girl to lose his virginity with, Eden starts to see Josh in a different light—and Josh starts to see Eden differently too.

They were so much fun to write. I brought in real, tiny elements I picked up from my kids and their friends, which I think helps make the characters feel even more real. When you’re surrounded by teens on a constant basis like I am, you get a lot of insight into the teen mind and what’s important to them.

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

I don’t like to name specific favorite authors only because I have so many! But if I’m forced, I like to say Jill Shalvis (adore her adult romances), Lauren Layne (been on a real Lauren reading kick lately) and Katie McGarry (she’s one of my favorite YA authors ever).

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 think I’d like to go back in time to maybe Regency England? Only so I could wear a pretty dress and dance with a dashing duke. But then I’d get freaked out and want to come home because I’d miss electricity and my iPhone. LOL

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

I have one dog (Oliver) and too many cats (um, six). We live in the country so the majority of the cats stay outside and keep the pests away, though some of them come in when it gets cold.

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

Thank you so much for having me!!
