Welcome To How To Hook A Hottie Week @ YA Fresh!!

That's right, Folks, this week we are celebrating the release of our very own Tina Ferraro's How To Hook A Hottie, which officially released Tuesday, January 8th. So that means, we are all about Hottie all week, with a fun interview, Tina dishing on her first signing with Hottie, and of course, topping the week off with a giveaway--so stick with us!

Also don't miss a chat with Tina on Tuesday evening, January 15th at 5:30 PST at Enchanting Reviews: How fun will that be asking Tina questions about her characters and books? Or even fun stuff like, "Tina, what's your most favorite dessert ever??" You get the drift--come chat!

And I just had to gush about Tina's second novel, How To Hook A Hottie. Here's my take:

When Kate DelVecchio hooks her own high school Hottie, she shoots to popularity and also nabs the wisdom to make some serious cash by graduation. All she has to do is help her peers find their romantic match. With a mom MIA and a money-making goal, Kate's got it all under control with the help of her best pal, Jason "Dal" Dalrymple, who swears their flying by the seat of their pants. But this new biz can't be as hard as landing straight As and studying all those business books, right?? With more clients than she can handle, and a topic she's not exactly an expert on, Kate soon realizes maybe money isn't all its cracked up to be.

Tina Ferraro once again gives readers a smooth entertaining read with her engaging voice and delightful characters. HOW TO HOOK A HOTTIE has a business-savvy heroine, a sweet first love that blossoms from a childhood friendship, and one very cool Six-Point Plan. You'll want to hook this novel for your keeper shelf!
So let's top off this post with YOUR favorite Hottie--celeb or fiction...mine is Chuck (Zack Levi) from Chuck. :) :) Okay, your turn!

Thank you, Kelly! You're the world's best critique and blogging partner!

I hope some of you (all of you?) can join me tomorrow night at the chat and keep me from being nervous.

And my favorite hottie? Well, how about Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy in the BBC version of Pride & Prejudice?

Jessica, great choices...and btw, I was talking about you yesterday to a school newspaper reporter, when she asked if I knew any young YA authors. I sent her to your website, so let me know if you hear from her!

Kelly Parra said...

Congrats on the new release, Tina! One of my fave hottie scenes is the look Shane West gives Mandy Moore after he blows on her fake tattoo in A Walk to Remember. I listened to Shane & Mandy's commentary on the DVD and apparently he was a little loaded.

Meggy said...

My favorite celeb hottie is Corbin Bleu. Zac Efron may get most of the hype, but to me, Corbin is the hot one in High School Musical. And, seriously, why doesn't love that fro?

Lis said...

Look forward to chatting with you tomorrow night!

Fave hottie celeb, right now its Criss Angel :)

TinaFerraro said...

Susan, that's a great fun fact about Shane West! And Meggy, I'm with you about Corbin Bleu!

Looking forward to tomorrow night, Lisa!

Congrats, Tina!

Hmm, such a difficult question! I see Milo's already spoken for, so I'll pick again. I've always thought Michael Vartan from 'Alias' is pretty cute. And apparently he's in Australia now, so there's always a chance I could bump into him if I'm super lucky.
