Spotlight & Giveaway: Unraveled by Jen Frederick

Posted April 18th, 2014 by in Blog, Spotlight / 43 comments

Today it is my pleasure to spotlight UNRAVELED by USA Today bestselling author Jen Frederick



UNRTwenty-five-year-old Sgt. Gray Phillips is at a crossroads in his life: stay in the Marine Corps or get out and learn to be a civilian? He’s got forty-five days of leave to make up his mind but the people in his life aren’t making the decision any easier. His dad wants him to get out; his grandfather wants him to stay in. And his growing feelings for Sam Anderson are wreaking havoc with his heart…and his mind. He believes relationships get ruined when a Marine goes on deployment. So now he’s got an even harder decision to make: take a chance on Sam or leave love behind and give his all to the Marines.

Twenty-two year old Samantha Anderson lost her husband to an IED in Afghanistan just two months after their vows. Two years later, Sam is full of regrets—that she didn’t move with her husband to Alaska; that she allowed her friends to drift away; that she hasn’t taken many chances in life. Now, she’s met Gray and taking a risk on this Marine could be her one opportunity to feel alive and in love again. But how can she risk her heart on another military man who could share the same tragic fate as her husband? UNRAVELED on Goodreads:

Jen Frederick’s Woodlands Characters Order Up Some Fun

Samantha Anderson, the heroine from author Jen Frederick’s latest New Adult novel UNRAVELED, is a part time bartender. Hanging out at the popular watering hole has its advantages, especially when Gray Phillips tags along with the Woodland hunks. So what does Sam serve up to her delicious new man and his friends?

Gray (from UNRAVELED): Whiskey, straight up. That’s what he drinks with his dad and his brothers. It’s pretty much a tradition in his family.

Grace (from UNDECLARED): Creamsicle. Vanilla vodka, triple sec, orange juice, and half and half. The drink reminds her of creamsicle treats that her father used to buy her when she was young.

Noah (from UNDECLARED): Smith & Wesson. It’s made of coffee liqueur and vodka. Noah is constantly on the go and is juggling multiple tasks at once. He needs the coffee. Plus, the name of the drink is appropriate for a former Marine.

Bo (from UNSPOKEN): Horny Bull. It’s made of tequila and orange juice. Bo would say this is the perfect breakfast to have write before a test. The name describes exactly how he feels around AnnMarie.

AnnMarie (from UNSPOKEN): Moscow Mule. Made of vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer and served cold in a special copper mug, this drink says that AnnMarie is refreshing, a little complicated, but very special.

    My mixed drink preferences are pretty simple … no complex recipes or muddling or straining or setting on fire. I like Malibu rum and Diet Coke in the winter, vodka collins in the summer. I also love blended margaritas but only poolside or accompanying Mexican fare.

  2. mrsmac19

    If I’m going all out, I do enjoy a good chocolate martini. Those are pretty rare, so I stick to chardonnay. Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

    I usually don’t drink, but my Mom used to make Apricot Stone Sours and I still like them. It’s an easy slushy drink. Just put Apricot Schnapps, frozen limeade concentrate and ice in a blender and blend until smooth. Great in the summer.

  4. Sarah M.

    The current fave is Dirty Bong Water. Lol. We’ve modified it a bit but it’s equal parts: spiced rum, amaretto, blue curaçao, raspberry liqueur (we use black raspberry), sweet and sour, and we’ve added a splash of orange juice. We make it in a (large) pitcher.

    Dont drink that much but I like a Cosmo, but I mostly drink water and vitamin waters.

    I’m not much of a drinker but I can’t live without my coffee with hazelnut creamer!

  7. Cathy P

    I’m not much of a drinker, but I do like strawberry margaritas or a sweet tasting wine when I do drink.

    I don’t drink alcohol a lot. My favorite drink right now is Red Orange OJ. It’s pretty in a glass, refreshing and has a wonderful taste. For a festive touch, I add a splash of 7-up or ginger ale. Enjoy!

    I loved the book blurb. Very intriguing.

    Thanks for sharing!

    My favorite is a fuzzy navel. I don’t have a recipe but I do like to flavor vodka with different types of fruit like peaches and pretty much any kind of berry

    I’m a sucker for margaritas! I love trying new fruity flavors whenever I go out, which isn’t very often. At home, I usually drink Kahlua — they have great recipes on their website. Most of the time, I drink it with milk — again, rarely. 🙂

  11. txgrll

    My drink of choice usually is a sweet red wine but a mixed drink would be the chocolate amore: 1 shot of amaretto, 1 shot of baileys, 1 shot of Kalua, poured over ice cream and chocolate syrup.

  12. Laurie G

    When I go out I usually have a whiskey Old Fashion with Diet 7 Up.
    I occasionally will drink a glass of blush wine or White Lambrusco at home.

    Ah…that’s a wonderful question. But I have no answer ):

    After having some serious health issues, I was pretty much told that my body couldn’t process alcohol from a fairly young age (17-ish), and I was always one of those ‘good girls’ that never tried any before being legal. So I uh…have never tried any cocktails.

    I like mixing chocolate chip ice cream and orange sherbert together, does that count? Haha!

  14. Winnie Lim

    I like Long Island tea or Shirley temple. No recipes though. I usually drink them only when I’m at a bar.
