♠♠ OUT NOW ♠♠
The 3rd book in the Beginnings series was released in October, and I’d love to get “you hooked” with some snippets.
I’ve moved the story a little forward … this is when Jared meets Ivy, the heroine of this story. She’s left her boyfriend “to start a new life”
And he chuckled some more.
“I’d better go. It was really nice meeting you. And I honestly appreciate you helping me out.”
He turned and locked the doors to the motorhome. Yet, she wasn’t moving.
Watching her carefully, he said. “Your feet aren’t movin’.”
Her beautiful eyes filled up with tears, and a bit of guilt went through Jared for pushing her. Obviously, her impression of him being a criminal couldn’t have been all that bad, because she wasn’t leaving. Exhaling a big breath, he met her gaze. Nothing was going to plan, so why not?
“Wanna come a little farther?” he asked as he rubbed the back of his neck.
To his surprise, she shook her head. “No.” Drawing in her lips, she stepped back and then said. “Bye, Jared.”
Still carrying some guilt, he watched her walk across the car park and into the distance. “Nice knowing ya,” he said to himself before he turned and headed towards the shopping centre.
Jared’s mind wasn’t on shopping at all. Instead, he replayed the last twelve hours and the few words that had been spoken between him and Ivy. She had been like a closed book, and he still didn’t know why she was running. In fact, she hadn’t said much at all. It had driven him nearly insane how she had nibbled at her sandwich, although her craving for food had been obvious. Yes, he had been attracted to her. But that would’ve been one big disaster. Hooking up with an American girl was not something he needed. Not to mention a runaway at that.
He let out a snort. For all he knew, she could’ve been a con-woman on the run.
Jared Fraser, a landscape business owner in Hobart, Australia, sets out for a holiday to the USA to travel along the Route 66 in a motorhome. Looking forward to his first holiday overseas, he’s excited as he prepares himself for the journey. But little could’ve prepared him for crossing paths with a beautiful hitchhiker.
Will he be able to put his past aside and grab onto happiness?
Ivy Bennett thought leaving her boyfriend would be the hard part. It doesn’t take long to figure out how wrong she was. As she struggles with making a new start in her life, the last person she expects to lead her to happiness is a laid-back Australian on vacation.
But she will have to say goodbye again. And not only to Jared.
