A Whiskey Sweet Treat by Kelsey Elise Sparrow 💕 Guest Post, Book Tour & $10 Gift Card Giveaway 💕 (Contemporary Romance)

My best recipes come out of moments of spontaneity.
- Savannah Flowers

Mixing a goody-two-shoes baker with a detective who has questionable morals is a recipe for disaster.
- Holden Cross

A random order for a loyal customer introduced me to the man of my dreams. It also led me to a moment of great devastation. I can’t believe both are the result of knowing the same man. I don’t know if we’ll be able to come back from this. I’m seriously screwed.

Lies. Confusion. Secrets. All have become second nature in my world. I live this life and think nothing of the effect it has on others. Until her. She enters and demanded more. More than any other has asked of me.
More lies, a rumor, then the truth. F*cked that up royally.

*Formerly titled Hot Cross Buns

Whiskey Sweet

Whiskey Sweet has come to be one of my favorite places, even if it is totally set in my mind. I'm in love with the characters and the location. Set in Connecticut, just outside of real life New Haven, it's a beautiful space. The cherry blossoms that grow there are so magnificent and grace the spines of the series' covers. Initially, I didn't know this was going to become a series. I was writing the introduction to the series, Whiskey's One True Wish, I didn't think Taryn and Wesley's story would lead me to her friend. (I had no clue this was going to be the intro.) Savannah and Cross revealed their story as slowly as humanly possible all while revealing how it would connect some of the other books in other series. I didn't know Dylan and Kincaid's story was going to be told before Savannah and Cross let me know the details of their connection. I also had no clue how all of those worlds would connect.

A Whiskey Sweet Treat tells Savannah and Cross' story, but the story doesn't end there. A nugget of their story is told in Stick, Sweet Caramel which releases on Aug. 10. The first connection is discovered. One that threw me for a loop. As it came to be, I did a happy dance. It might shock those who have read any of my previous works.

From Whiskey Sweet, Connecticut to Atlanta, Georgia to Tempa, Florida, the links between the characters have blown my mind. I can't wait to show how everything ties together. The families and the cases bring these individuals together in ways I never would've imagined. I hope the readers love it just as much as I have. What the characters have shared with me is beautiful. As each piece is developed, each story shows just how connected the characters are in the KES world. Happy Reading!!  

Are you kidding me? He did not choose this,” I exclaim as I look at the card to see what the man chose as his winning treat.

That doesn’t sound dirty. Remember him calling you his treat.

Nope. Not doing that. That’s part of the problem. Business only. Get in. Get out. Get her done.

That’s what he said. Or will say.

I hate my life and my runaway thoughts. This is insane! Shaking myself, I focus on the matter at hand.

He did. Apparently, he’s just as much a fan of it as you are.”

I think I hate my friend too. I don’t, but I would really like to punch her in the titty bags right about now.

Shut your face, Chas!” I growl as I finish the email then send it.

Within seconds, my computer chimes indicating I have a response which causes Chastity and Aaliyah to laugh.

Guess he knows you better than you think he does.”

Huffing, I roll my eyes then stalk away from the computer screen where his response is still pulled up.

I’m going to my office. I have things to do.”

They all laugh as soon as the kitchen door closes behind me.

I need my friend. She’d make me feel better about all of this or at least be on my side of things. I need to speak to her as soon as possible. This man is going to make me lose my mind if I let him get the better of me. I’m dialing the number well before I even enter my office. Her glee-filled greeting makes me smile despite the feelings I’m feeling inside.

Slutty Savvy! Good gravy, I’ve missed the hell out of you! How are things?” Taryn looks up from whatever she was just doing to make a face at me. “Oh no, what’s wrong? You’ve got that weird ‘w’ in the middle of your forehead. What’s on your mind? Don’t tell me you’re worried about something.”

I both love and hate the fact that you know me well enough to know that about me, Terrifying Taryn.”

If it didn’t make me feel weird, I swear I’d hug the damn phone.

That seals it. There’s something wrong if that’s the best name you could come up with,” Taryn says, she lifts one of the twins and puts him on her hip.

That damn … dang Cross has me losing all parts of my mind. Now, I have to go and face the … butternut squash. I told myself I’d steer clear of him so I can get over him. Now, I have a feeling my team is working with him to give him an opportunity he wouldn’t otherwise have.”

She nods then smiles.

Sounds like the Rainbow Crew cares more about the heart and mind of their boss, not just how well she treats them. Given how you behaved with them before, I’m surprised any of them are talking to you.”

I glare at my phone and wish I was standing in front of her so I can show her just how irritated I am with her words.

Yes. Oh. Right. BTW, thanks for your part in getting me back to myself,” I state sincerely. “Now, when I’m finally resembling my old self, my supposed friends want to send me into the lion’s den where there is possibility for a relapse.”

Taryn nods her head then bites her lip. I can tell she’s fighting a laugh.

Do you really believe they would do the whole ‘lion’s den’ thing? Or is it you’re not ready to face the truth?”

I gasp then lean back. I’m not appreciating this line of questioning. She’s supposed to support me here.

What truth is that?”

You’re in love with the man and scared shitless to open yourself up to him again.” Her words have the desired effect. I am speechless. “Judging by that pause, I’m right. Just so you know, I think he’s a great guy. He’s also kind of perfect for you. That’s in spite of everything the two of you have already been through. This one might just be worth it, Sweets.”

There I had it. Whiskey Taryn had just given her stamp of approval and was ready to hand me over to the man who practically broke me. 


Taryn “Whiskey”
Best friends. That’s what we are. At least, that’s what we were. One night changed our worlds forever. One night that turned into two days—two of the best days of my life. On the third morning, he was gone. I was heartbroken, but I didn’t know how to tell him.
Now, he’s engaged to be married and doesn’t know how I feel. Never thought a bottle of my namesake could cause me this much trouble.
I am supposed to be getting married. The problem is, I can’t seem to stop wondering why my best friend and “best man,” Whiskey, isn’t standing right here with me. I need her to tell me I’m doing the right thing because I’m starting to have doubts.
I can’t stop thinking about those two nights we shared. We laughed and made jokes about how everyone said we’d end up together. At the time, we felt it was a crazy notion.
Now, I’m thinking maybe they knew something we didn’t. Maybe we dismissed the possibility far too soon.
What I’m certain of is I need to know everything before I make the biggest mistake of my life.


How is a person supposed to come to terms with these facts?
Fact 1: My parents aren’t upstanding citizens (kind of learned that one at an early age)
Fact 2: The same two people who gave me life are the same people I, not too long ago, watched slice up two of my high school peers. (Great! Serial killers on top of idiotic thieves.)
Oh, and that’s just the starter.
What comes next makes those things seem like child’s play or having a cotton candy treat at a damn fair. Destiny? Fate? I’d like to give those b*tches a swift kick in the teeth. Kincaid Peterson has his work cut out for him if I’m the one he wants to spend his time with.
