That Guy and That Girl
by Natalia Albrite


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


GENRE:   New Adult Contemporary Romance


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:


Olivia Meadows is excited to finish her senior year of college as a volleyball national champion beside her teammates and best friends. A complication arrives in the form of John Hunter, that guy, her brother’s best friend whom she has had a secret crush on since she was eleven years old. Effortlessly charming and handsome, with a body honed by years of playing football, John initiates his charm offensive and Olivia finds herself unable to resist him.

John Hunter is pumped to finish his senior year of college as a football national champion beside his teammate and best friend. The only thing missing is that girl, Olivia Meadows, his best friend’s little sister. He needed to sow some wild oats before settling down with Olivia but now he is ready for something serious with the girl he has always admired. 


Be careful what you wish for. John and Olivia find themselves dealing with adult consequences very quickly and wondering if their young love can endure the pressures of adulthood. Will they find deeper love or implode from the pressures of their own making?

EXCERPT:

“Hey, I’ve missed you and I’m really glad to see you,” he says as he looks deep into my
eyes. Simple words that say everything I want to hear right now. This is exactly what we need: to keep it simple and direct.

I want him to kiss me and I want him to do it now. I want to say ditto so we can get to the good stuff faster but just as quickly I decide to be as clear as he was, “I’ve missed you too and I’m so glad you’re here.”

We both stare at each other for a few seconds and then eventually smirk. He nods and says, “I’m gonna kiss the shit out of you now.”

I nod as he pulls me in closer. One arm moves to my lower back. I place my hands back on the pecs I want to appreciate more fully. He touches his lips to mine so gently. In some ways I want him to rush. I want him to deepen things quickly. But in more ways, I want him to take it slow and let this burn slow between us. It feels like forever since we have appreciated each other in this way.

He is clearly taking the slow route and eventually adds the slightest bit of tongue to his kisses. It’s subtle and I both love and hate the slowness in escalation. I involuntarily moan quietly. He knows how to build the tension. He pulls back and looks into my eyes again, “I love you.”

AUTHOR Interview:



Who is your intended audience and why should they read your book?
At first, I wanted to answer this by responding, “anyone and everyone!” However, I have changed my perspective on this a bit. I adjusted my thinking on this after running into the sweetest friends and family members who often say, “I haven’t read your book yet but I sure want to.” I know they mean that sincerely. I know they want to want to but let’s face it, we all have our favorite genres which can be as broad as preferring nonfiction to being as specific as loving YA post-apocalyptic stories. I have so much respect for that because I too have my go-to favorites. I wrote in one of my favorite genres. So, truthfully, my intended audience is anyone and everyone… who enjoys a new adult sports romance with some angst and a fairly light heat level. I totally understand it’s not for everyone.

Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book or series:
This series is titled “When Artists and Athletes Collide,” and I created that subtitle on the spot when I needed to complete a content sheet for the cover artist. I wasn’t totally sure of the title because I’d come up with it so spontaneously and I usually like to think these things over—sometimes to death. But it’s turned out to be an excellent source of inspiration for me as I plan the characters for the stories that will round out the series. Yes, we meet some of them in That Guy and That Girl so some aspects of their personalities are already determined but when I match them up with their romantic interests, I use “When Artists and Athletes Collide,” as the basis of my brainstorm.

Do you have any unique talents or hobbies?
I am an actor although I’ve taken a step back recently. I have had the privilege of being in a few commercials, an industrial video, and a few very small movie roles. I love acting so much and fell into it about six years ago. I was a new stay-at-home mom and needed an adult activity that would take me out of the house one night a week. It turns out it was more than just a needed outlet, I love the craft so much and it informs how I build characters in my writing. I am truly grateful for the craft of acting and am constantly amazed by what it has shown me about myself as an artist and as a person!

How can we contact you or find out more about your books?
I feel so accessible and hope that anyone who wants to get into contact, will do so! You can find my website at www.nataliaalbrite.com . That’s probably the best place to start because it has all the ways to get in touch: email, social media links, etc! I’d love to hear from you!

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
I’m a baby at all of this and I’m trying to build an audience. I would love, love, love more reviews! And I can take the honesty—I really can. Word of mouth is key and the more I can build that through reviews, the better!

What can we expect from you in the future?
’m in this to stay so you can expect more books! I have a current plan for this series that will consist of two full length novels and three novellas. I plan to tackle the children of the characters we meet in this series next and I’m considering throwing in some pretty major record-scratch type world changes to their stories. I have an itch to branch out in terms of world-building but I’m still attached to the children we will meet in this series.

Is there anything else you’d like to say?
I want to send out gratitude to anyone and everyone (ha!) who takes the time to read this! Now that I’m on this end, I realize how meaningful it is to make connections out in the world. So thanks for taking the time!
