BoHo Book Club - Almost by Anne Eliot

     Who would have thought that after all of this time, I still exist?! Exist, I do, and every so often I make an attempt to resurrect this blog of mine because it still holds a dear place in my heart.  One day I hope to be able to devote far more time to it than I am presently able to do.  This, being my latest attempt at resurrection.  One of my closest friends over at The Bohemian Housewife has recently started her BoHo Book Club and I am so honored to have been invited to be included.  Most bloggers are posting once a week about our book each month but I've set my aspirations a bit lower for now.  Maybe during my off seasons I will blog more often, but for now my goal is one post per book that we read, or maybe two.  Don't judge me, I'm a full time Doctorate student with four young children; life is just tad bit busy in my neck of the woods!
     In any case, this first month we have been reading Almost by Anne Eliot.  So, without further ado, let me give you some info on our book and the fabulous author that wrote it.

About The Book:

At a freshman party she doesn't remember, Jess Jordan was almost raped.

...Almost. Very nearly. Not quite. 

Three years later, Jess has managed to make everyone believe she's better. Over it. Because she is.

...Almost. Very nearly. Not quite.

Unfortunately, until Jess proves she's back to normal activities, her parents won't discuss college. So, she lands a summer internship and strikes a deal with hockey jock, Gray Porter: He gets $8,000. She gets a fake boyfriend and a social life. 

Jess has no idea Gray signed on for reasons other than money. She also never expects to fall in love. But Gray’s amazingly hot, holds her hand all the time, and makes her forget that he’s simply doing his job. It’s like having a real boyfriend.

...Almost. Very nearly. Not quite.

Gray Porter is hiding secrets of his own. About Jess Jordan. About why he’s driven to protect her, why he won't cash her checks, or deny her anything she asks. 

About The Author:

Anne Eliot writes sweet, first-love stories. She was raised in the mountains of Colorado, but says she really learned about life, love and friendships from summers spent with her large, Italian immigrant family in Ontario, Canada. 

Anne is grateful to have had schools with inspiring teachers and librarians who directed her to worlds she would not have found on her own. To this day, she adores school visits, teaching writing to teens, and is dedicated to making sure kids in need have access to books that will fuel their hopes and dreams. 

While growing up, Anne hid her own anxieties by hiding and reading book after book. She developed an addiction to first love, first kisses and her favorite: the happy-ever-after story. This is what she writes today. Now she's a mom of two and happily married to her own first love. Anne works hard to juggle being a wife and parent while writing, but fails at cooking because she is still trying to read book, after book of love stories on the side. 

Anne Eliot’s first book, Almost, became a top 100 best selling Kindle book, and was a Readers Choice, Top 12 of 2012 book for at #11, and will be translated and released in Germany and Turkey fall 2013. Her second book, Unmaking Hunter Kennedy, is a also a Kindle, top 100 best selling book in Teen Romance for 2013. She's hard at work on her third novel, another sweet teen romance releasing fall/winter, 2013. She loves to hear from readers. Please look for her on Facebook or tweet her @yaromance.
