The Misadventures of a (Wannabe) Slutty Bartender 

by WS Carmichael

Ava Moreland has it all planned out. In two months, she will marry her fiancĂ©, Tim. She’ll continue working at Vegas’s famous Cosmopolitan bar while he runs his father’s accounting firm. Soon they’ll start a family and she’ll have the white picket life she’s always dreamed of.
Or not.

When her fairytale engagement implodes in a devastating display, Ava embarks on a quest to reclaim her identity and feminine prowess – by sleeping her way through Las Vegas. With her best friend, Jarrod, acting as wingman her plan is foolproof.
Or not.

Nothing goes as planned with hilariously disastrous results. Her sexual misadventures will keep you in stitches as Ava searches for herself in Sin City, finding herself and her happily ever after in the unlikeliest of places.

Now for an Excerpt:

The day passes quickly and before I know it, I’m getting out of an Uber in front of the Tropicana. I smooth the imaginary wrinkles out of my dress, hike my purse higher on my shoulder and walk through the main entrance. I try my best to ignore the butterflies in my stomach while I make my way to our designated meeting area.

I remind myself even though I am not normally a one-night stand kind of girl, I am committed to stepping out of my old way of living. I do not want to be that girl. You know, the one who never takes a risk, never steps off the safe, well-lit path she’s laid out for herself. The one who looks back over her life when she’s gray and old, only to realize she settled. She settled for the sure bet, the man who could never own her heart enough to truly break it, the safe career and the white picket fence. She settled for all the things she knew could never make her soul sing but could never make it cry either.

I no longer want to be that girl.

I want to be the girl who lives life, the girl who seizes every opportunity. I want to be the girl who embraces her wild side until she finds a man who can tame it, not suppress it. Tonight, I want to be the girl who doesn’t go home and molest her showerhead.

Now for an Interview with the Author:

1. Describe yourself in three words.
Funny. Smart. Pretty.
It might sound conceited to some, but self love and being proud of our strengths is too underrated in today’s society. We are awesome. Every single one of us is awesome for some reason. Be proud of what makes you awesome.

2. Cast your book. Tell us who would play the main characters in a movie and why.
Ava Moreland would be played by Katie Findlay. She’s cute and plays a funny snarky really well.
Jarrod Jeffries would be played by Colton Haynes. He’s just the right combination of sexy and pretty.
Adam Grayson would be played by Chris Salvatore. The perfect combination of scruffy and sexy.

3. What’s your favorite love scene from a movie?
At the risk of sounding clichĂ©, my favorite love scene is from Dirty Dancing when Baby goes to Johnny’s room for the first time. Up to that point in the movie, you can almost feel the sexual tension between the two of them. Johnny tries so hard to leave her alone because it’s the right thing to do, but in the end he’s powerless against the chemistry between them. It gives me butterflies every time.

4. What’s your wildest fantasy?
To be completely untethered from responsibility. My entire life has revolved around someone else’s needs since I was twenty one, when I had my first child. Don’t get me wrong, I have thoroughly enjoyed every stage of motherhood – infant, toddler, grade school and even teenagers. Now that my youngest child is eighteen and for the most part out of the nest, I am getting a taste of the freedom I dreaded for so many years. I’ll be leaving my full time job within the next couple of years and I can’t wait for the freedom that change will afford me. I’ll finally be able to write full time, travel as I please and experience all the things the necessities of life put on hold.

5. If you were to lose one of your senses, which would you rather lose and why?
Hmmm. Tough choice. Definitely not sight or hearing. I’m clumsy enough without being blind and I’d miss hearing my kids voices too much if I were deaf. Touch is out also. It’s too important of an aspect of love. As too many of us have learned this last year, loss of taste and smell seem to go hand in hand. But if I was guaranteed to lose only one, I would choose smell. Of all the senses, it would impact my daily life the least – unless I was on fire, of course.

6. What is the naughtiest thing you did as a kid?
I was a pretty good kid, but once I scratched up our new bathroom counter with something sharp. We had only had it installed less than a month before. I was young, maybe 8 or so. Definitely old enough to know better. The worst part wasn’t what I did, but the fact that my parents assumed it was my younger brother and I let him take the fall. To this day, I’ve never told them it was me.

Boxers or Briefs?
Boxer Briefs
Top or Bottom? 
Pajamas or nude? 
Hairy chests or smooth? 
Alpha or Beta? 
Alpha, but not a douchy alpha.

About the Author: 

WS Carmichael is attempting to write the world into romantic bliss one novel at a time. Based in upstate NY, she travels as often as her hectic schedule will allow. When she isn’t busy writing, she’s a mother, nurse and avid sportswoman.

WS Carmichael fell in love with romance at an early age when she would sneak Harlequins from her mother. A voracious reader, she eventually made the jump to writing.

Writing is her passion and she’s always jotting down new storyline and character ideas. Often, her characters take on a life of their own and don’t always cooperate with her plan for them. Creating well developed, strong alpha male characters that don’t fit into the typical romance hero mold makes her novels exciting and relatable. A woman who believes whole heartedly in happily ever after, she gives her heroes the heroine they deserve.
