JUNIPER SMOKE by @ash_sadia: #CurrentRead + #GIVEAWAY!

Genre: Contemporary Romance

A nerdy curator. A worldly inventor. A sizzling affair.
In the age of hookups, can love survive the test of time?

Juniper Mills is a sassy, nerdy curator at the History Museum of Ann Arbor. Taking care of her mom and autistic twin, her life has been one big sacrifice for others. Work. Home. Repeat. Raised by her mother to hate men, she worries she’ll die a frigid scholar in a musty house with an army of cats and a lake of books.

Kyle Paxton is a handsome, robotic inventor of micro-cameras from San Francisco. To curb the dark memories of his ex-girlfriend who haunts him, he schedules dating and work with mechanical precision. Not looking for love, he only hooks up with Amazonian models.

Juniper and Kyle meet cute when she is dangling forty feet from a museum scaffolding. Juniper falls for him, but knows getting him is going to be hard. Juniper knocks Kyle’s world off its axis and their galaxies collide in this very unfairy tale.

"Much more than a simple love story. It’s a saga." (Annette Abernathy's Blog)
“I loved this story. This is a must read book!” (Heather - Kinky Kittens Book Blog)
“It will cut you to the bone. This has become my favorite book.” (Nikki's Windowseat Blog)
“A definite five-star read! Gives you a long book hangover.” (Samreen Ahsan- Award Winning Author)


If I had to give this book a rating RIGHT NOW, I'd say five stars, hands-down. However, I'm not finished reading it just yet. You see, this is TWO books in one and it's well over 700 pages long. Juniper and Kyle's story has me HOOKED.

The banter, the sarcasm, the wittiness, the sexual tension...these two have me glued to my iPad! I can't help but think of FSoG with some of the details, but Kyle and Juniper are way different in many, many aspects. While I'm thoroughly enjoying every single page, I'm also nervous because I KNOW Sadia Ash is going to break my heart soon enough. I can feel it. So naturally, I'm nervous!

One thing I absolutely LOVE about this saga is KYLE. He is not the typical CEO alpha male I'm used to reading quite often and that alone has me truly loving his character. He doesn't just crave control, he needs it. He needs to know how everything in his life will pan-out, down to the last second. It's interesting "being inside his head" and seeing how he calculates his every move! His nerdy side is also very refreshing. Makes the banter between him and Juniper all that much funnier as in laugh-out-loud funny!

I can't wait to dive back in tonight!! For now, I can surely say this is a book I will be highly recommending! The author's writing style is also amazing and easy to follow and connect with!

Sadia Ash has held jobs in different fields that involved writing (and never math) in some way. She has worked for film and TV publicity with the Prenner Group, did news and TV placement for Aeros (a NASA project), edited scripts for indie films, and fundraised. A lot. A serial volunteer, she has raised funds for many charities that educate and help girls.

Currently working on two other novels and a film script, Ash hopes to see the sunlight outside her window one day. She holds an MA English degree from Loyola University in Chicago, a Screenwriting Certificate from UCLA and one more impractical MA in English Literature from NUML. Originally from Chicago, she lives in sun-drenched Cali with her husband—who is her best friend—and two bright kids.
