Beyond The Page: “All the Way” by Jennifer Probst

All the Way 900pxJennifer Probst fans, it’s your lucky day! 🙂

She’s visiting CABR today to about “All the Way”, which sees a Manhattan food critic and her ex-boyfriend turned restauranteur squaring off over yummy dishes.

Read on to find the answer to the Rafflecopter GIVEAWAY question for your chance to WIN a copy of “All the Way”

*****************

1) “All The Way” is partially set in a family-run Italian restaurant in Manhattan. What inspired you to write this story?

Ah, I adore two things to explore in my books: family and food. I was inspired with an idea for a food critic to be pitted against a restaurant owner, and found the concept full of possibility. What better background than a drama filled, family owned Italian restaurant to explore conflicts, conversation, and introduce the sensuous elements of music, food, and wine? Perfecto!

2) I know you enjoy making your h/H overcome struggles and suffer through sexual tension 😉 On a scale of 1 – 10, how hot is ATW?

Wow, cool, I never got to rate my sex scenes on a scale before! This book is not in the erotic field of some of my other stories, so I’d go with a solid 7. The sex scenes themselves are riveting, but the story contains a lot of snappy dialogue and fun scenes to go along with the hot sex!

AAA3) How much fun was it writing about the ins and outs of a restaurant? Any research stories to share? 🙂

My girlfriend owned a small restaurant for a time, and I actually waitressed there so I could see some of the drama enfold.

Before you ask, I was the worst waitress ever but the research was awesome!

Waitresses fighting with each other, cooks quitting and storming out, then coming back the next day like nothing ever happened, arguments about the specials and food related issues, it was a hot box of stories!

I also researched food critics and the ins and outs of their jobs and some of their escapades, so putting the two together was a lot of fun.

4) Did you struggle in writing a particular scene? Tell us about it. 

I struggled with one particular area of how Gavin was really going to convince Miranda he cared when he left her for all those years. It had to be convincing, yet not overdone. It took me a while to come up with the  method of re-entry into her heart and I think the readers will find it worked well in the story.

6) Chocolate or fruits?

    Such a good book! The scene she struggled with was how Gavin was going to convince her he cared when he left her years ago.

  • Tess H says:

    Which scene in ALL THE WAY did Jennifer struggle to write?
    The one particular area of how Gavin was really going to convince Miranda he cared when he left her for all those years. It had to be convincing, yet not overdone. It took her a while to come up with the method of re-entry into her heart and she thinks the readers will find it worked well in the story.

  • Chanpreet says:

    Ms. Probst struggled with how to make it seem convincing Gavin cared for Miranda when he left her all those years ago. It’d certainly be a doubting Thomas if I was in Miranda’s shoes!

  • Evelyn says:

    She struggled on how Gavin was going to prove to Miranda that he had cared about her.

  • Maria says:

    Hi Sasha, Hi Jennifer.

    So Jennifer struggled to write the scene where the hero had to convince the heroine he really cared although he left her years before? I’m not surprised. It would faze any writer, I think.

    Jennifer, I admire your courage in admitting you find BDSM an escapist read. Just let me say you are one gutsy lady. I’d find it scary to read that stuff, I have to say.

  • Loved the Marriage Bargain 🙂 Can’t wait to read the others and now this one!
