Title: Keep It Safe (KIS Series Book #2)

Author: Olivia Snow

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Day: December 16, 2014

Eight months ago Vanessa Saint John’s life was a lot different than it is now…

After losing Gabriel, and the discovery of his and Ava’s indiscretions, Vanessa becomes depressed and turns to partying and alcohol as a distraction.

Recognizing that she’s spiraling out of control, she manages to turn her life around. Still, her mother poses as a problem, and like the social climber she is, she fixes Vanessa up with the very rich and affluent Stellen Webb.

Vanessa is nothing more than a pawn in her mother’s quest for wealth and recognition, and unknowingly Cynthia pushes Vanessa into the arms of another man; Diesel Knox, a tattooed country boy with an attitude.

Clean and sober Ava has spent the last eight months in Sicily running away from her problems, until her mother summons her back to Colorado…

Reluctantly Ava returns to a broken Vanessa, a bartending job, and an unexpected love interest. Maxwell Gallagher, a much older man, who has a six-year-old son.

Will Vanessa finally break free of her parents grip? Will Ava finally find the happiness she so desperately seeks? Or will she forever be in the hell of her own making?

What inspired you to write the KIS series?
The story of two girls fighting over the affection of a boy had been with me for years, it wasn’t until my husband asked if there was anything out there like it, and there wasn’t or isn’t. I wanted to write what I saw in high school, two girls fighting over what they wanted. And not the norm we usually read about; two boys one girl.

Top 5 things you didn’t know about becoming a published author:
-You don’t have as much control over things.
-Everything has a deadline.
-Your vision is not everyone else’s vision.
-It’s not less stressful.
-There’s more pressure, I feel to be successful than how I felt going indie.

5 Reasons to love my main characters:
-Ava’s ability to be bold, we all struggle with that at some point in our life
-Vanessa’s innocence because that’s something we should all hold onto as long as possible.
-The way the girls love each other, family is everything to them.
-Gabriel’s hot bod—wait no he’s seventeen—Gabriel’s pretty blue eyes.
-Their love of ice cream.

5 facts about the KIS trilogy:
-All books will have K, I, and S in the beginning of the title.
-There was a threesome scene I chose not to include.
-Eagle Academy does not exist either does Tony’s.
-KIS1 doesn’t end until KIS2, and in KIS3 you’ll see a little bit of Ava and Vanessa.
-It took me nine months to write KIS1 and four months to write KIS2 even though KIS2 is longer.

How do you make your characters believable?
I try to make them believable by writing things I have experienced first hand.

Authors you admire:
Jay Crownover, Jennifer Armentrout, Samantha Young, Jaime McGuire, Abbi Glines, Penelope Douglas, Alice Clayton, and Christian Lauren, to name a few.
