Finally Mine Blog Tour: Guest Post + Giveaway

Welcome to my stop on the Finally Mine Blog Tour hosted by Wordsmith Publicity. For today's stop, I've got a super fun guest post by Anne Hansen and the tour wide giveaway to share with all of you, so do not go anywhere because there's a lot of epic going on here! Let's get to it!

About the book:

Title: Finally Mine
Author: Anne Hansen
Publisher: Self
Release date: May 3, 2014
Age group: New Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance

An incredible stroke of luck lands Vin Moretti a plea bargain—he spends his summer slaving at a country club instead of rotting in a jail cell. He plans to keep his head down and avoid the trust fund brats.

He never expects to fall for a gorgeous, amazing girl way out of his league.

When Keira McCabe falls in love with Vin Moretti, it’s head-over-heels, crazy, incredible love. She’s sure nothing can ruin what they have…but she has no idea how far Vin will go to protect her from the one thing he’s most afraid of: himself.

Summer ends, and Keira returns to the sprawling suburbs where she belongs, while Vin slinks back to the wrong side of the tracks and his old trouble-making ways. They promise to make long-distance love work.

It’s just dumb luck that her father’s unexpected demotion moves Keira smack in Vin’s gritty neck of the woods. Vin realizes he’ll need do whatever it takes to keep Keira safe—even if it means shutting the person he loves the most out of his dangerous life completely.

When Vin turns his back on Keira at her lowest moment, it finally hits her: she was never going to be anything more than his dirty little secret. Her life as she knows it has been torn to shreds, but she’s determined to make the best of it…with or without the guy she gave her heart to over the summer.

Vin starts to have second thoughts about his decision when he realizes how empty life is without Keira around. The problem is, Keira’s learned her lesson, and she isn’t about to be used again.

Vin realizes he’s going to have to pull out all the stops and turn his life around if he wants to make Keira finally his.

Guest post: Anne Hansen's favorite scene to write from Finally Mine and why

The scene I loved writing the most was the scene where Vin convinces Keira to skip school with him to show her why they have to break things off. At this point he knows he can’t be with her and has had to push her away so she won’t get caught up in the criminal life that’s drawing him deeper in. But he loves her, and he knows she deserves an explanation, so he decides to have this one last day where they’ll be together like they were in the summer before he cuts her off for good.

It was exciting to write that scene because there is a ton of push and pull. There’s the exhilaration of skipping school and the beauty of Vin demolishing his walls when Keira gets upset by the river trying to untangle their crazy romance. There’s the humor of the family dinner he takes her to, complete with sibling rivalry and overbearing parents. And when he forces Keira to face the part of himself that he thinks makes him nothing, there’s the strength of her love and loyalty.

This is the scene where the bloom of their fresh, happy new love is gone, and they’re really showing each other the raw pieces underneath. And as much as they struggle, both Vin and Keira fight so hard for each other. They take time to tell one another how strong and good and amazing the other is, which is why I love them so much.

Also there’s a hell of a hot makeout scene... I’m a sucker for a great kissing scene!
