BOOK & AUTHOR INFO:
Sushi & Sun Salutations by Heidi Hutchinson
(Soaring Bird #2)
Publication date: November 14th 2018
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Kip’s biggest decision most days is whether or not to wear a shirt. Until he runs into Tessa—or rather, she collapses on him in a yoga class—then the SoCal native’s biggest decision becomes how willing he is to complicate his life for a beautiful girl.
Kip has his secrets and Tessa has her hope. As their friendship deepens, pasts are revealed and hearts are exposed. The intensity of their connection becomes more real than anything they’ve ever known.
But Kip has secrets for a reason.
Will that reason come between them?
Sushi and Sun Salutations is book 2 in the Soaring Bird series but can be read as a standalone.
PG17 for language, mild heat, awkwardness, and unexpected moments of personal bravery.
Prepare yourself for feelings.
This story starts off slowly, but quickly picks up pace to become an intimate, emotional, tear jerker of a book.
For me, this story takes on a very personal feel. There is something about Kip’s struggles in particular which resonates with me and the path that these two follow is raw, honest and laden with feels.
My suggestion? Waterproof mascara and a pack of tissues.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book.
Like the Back of My Halo
(Soaring Bird #1)
Heidi Hutchinson was born in South Dakota and raised the exact right distance away from the Black Hills. She had an overactive imagination very early on, and wasted no time in getting most of her friends in trouble due to her unrealistic and completely ridiculous ideas. Seeing as she was so lazy and also afraid people would think she was bonkers, she didn’t write down any of the story lines that played out in her daydreams.
During her high school years, she took pen to paper and filled more notebooks than she is proud of with angsty, depressing, self-deprecating poetry. This led to her writing down more things: notes, ideas, character bios, plot twists that had no plot yet to twist. After years of cleaning up her own scraps of imagination with nothing solid to hold on to, she sat down and wrote the story that had been in her head the longest. Fueled by coffee and her unwavering and perfectly normal devotion to Dave Grohl, she discovered a writer living inside of her.
She still lives in the Midwest, though not as close to the Black Hills as she would prefer, with her alarmingly handsome husband and their fearless child. They eat more pizza than God intended and she listens to her music the same way she lives: loudly.
