Book Promo + Playlist: Blushing by Katie Delahanty

Morning Swooners,

I am so excited to have Katie Delahanty here with us today! Katie is the author of In Bloom and Blushing, The Brightside series. I  LOVED In Bloom (you can see my review here) and I'm so happy to have her here today. Music is an integral part of The Brightside series, and today we get to check out Katie's playlist for Blushing!

I can’t write without music—getting lost in a song and letting my imagination run wild is such an important part of the process for me. Here is a compilation of songs (in no particular order) that I was listening to while writing Blushing.

“Love Like This” by Kodaline
Even if it makes me a little sad (a love like Liv&Berk’s better last forever!)…it always puts me in the writing mood.

“Is This How You Feel?” By The Preatures
 Just pure happy…

“From Now On” by Delta Spirit

"Got to My Head” by Waters
Justin might sing this to Liv…

"Almost Lover" by A Fine Frenzy

“Work it Out” by Knox Hamilton
They can work it out…right?

“Love Runs Out” by One Republic
Ryan Tedder writes the best songs…he’s friends with Berkeley, for sure.

“California (Cast Iron Soul)” by Jamestown Revival
My inspiration for Coconut Teaszer’s sound!

Thanks for sharing your playlist with us, Katie. These are such great songs! Check out both In Bloom and Blushing live now. It's such a great series!

My name is Olivia Bloom and I. Am. Engaged.

When Berkeley proposed I thought we’d live happily ever after—we’d plan our wedding and he’d tour with the Brightside while I continued designing lingerie. But instead he dropped a bombshell that turned my life upside down: he’s set to star in a movie with, who else, his gorgeous ex, Christina Carlton. And what’s more? I’ve been erased from the public eye. All anyone can talk about is #Berkstina.

Berkeley wants me to work on set as a costume designer—a dream come true—but there’s a catch; we have to keep our relationship secret. I’m okay with not being photographed, but the sneaking around, the lies, the love scenes; it’s not how I imagined our engagement. I know Berkeley is passionate and driven, but he has so much going on—I don’t know if we can take it. I’m starting to wonder how well I know him.

I love him, but am I ready to drop everything and decide the rest of my life? To become Olivia Dalton?

My name is Olivia Bloom and I. Am. Free.

I left for LA with everything I owned piled into my old Volkswagen and dreams of becoming a costume designer. Little did I know I’d wind up designing for a lingerie company—yeah, not sure how I landed this gig—and taken under the wing of two young Hollywood insiders. The fashion shows and parties were great, but life really got exciting when the seriously hottest lead singer of my favorite band started to fall for me.

How does someone like me, an ordinary girl from Pittsburgh, wind up in the arms of the world’s sexiest rock star—surrounded by celebrities, fashion, and music—and not be eaten alive? Berkeley is everything I've ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, but the paparazzi, the tabloids, the rumors, it's all getting a bit too crazy. My life has become every girl’s dream come true, if only I don’t blink and lose it all…
