#MFRWHooks “…and looked for his new destination.Salt Lake City.Utah.” #romance #mustread #amreading

♠♠  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 Jared’s second day in LV

Enjoy ☺

 

Today’s Hook:

Jared hung up and replayed the conversation in his head again as he snatched a beer from the small fridge. He sat at the table, unfolded the map, and looked for his new destination. Salt Lake City. Utah.
He rubbed the heel of his hand over the corner of his eye. That wasn’t anywhere near where he wanted to go. Banging his head on the table out of frustration, he realised that his first holiday in years had been hijacked within minutes by people on the other side of the world. If he’d known the cost of a phone call, he’d have called Mark and ripped strips off his backside. His best buddy had lost best-buddy status and was dropped off the Christmas list for presents.
After a quick dinner, Jared retrieved the map again and started planning which included checking his travel guide for information along the way. His next stop was supposed to be a place near the Grand Canyon and then along Route 66 for a little while. That plan had been shot to pieces. Utah was north of Arizona and not even close to his original route. Jared let out a curse and cradled his head in his hands. How had this turned out to be about them and not him?

BLURB:
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.

Today’s Hook:

Jared returned to the motorhome very late that afternoon. While getting his dinner organised, a vibration in his pocket alerted him to a phone call. With his brows raised in surprise, he retrieved his phone to check the incoming call. He usually had the phone switched on, but only to get a hang of the time difference and to check the time. The old wristwatch had landed in the drawer years ago becoming too inconvenient to wear while working outside. He looked at the number.
Australia.
“Hello?”
“Jared?”
Standing straight, he squinted outside the window. “Mia? What the—”
“I need to make this quick, because I have no idea what this call will cost me.”
A thousand thoughts ran through Jared’s mind. Accidents. Deaths. Chaos. His business.
There was a hiccupping sob at the end of the other end of the line, and Jared needed to sit down. Needed to have something to hold on to as well as he prepared himself for the news.
“What’s wrong, mate?”
Another sob. “Josh and I… I… we—”
He waited her out, although it was on the tip of his tongue to scream at her to just spit out the information.
“We had a fight,” she said dramatically.
The sudden silence hung heavy, and Jared’s rush of relief was so intense, he had to lean back to rest his head. Lightheaded, he closed his eyes for the moment to pass.
“Jared?”
“Still here, mate.”
“Mark said if it’s okay with you, I can join you halfway.”
Eyes wide suddenly, he stared into the distance. He had agreed to what? Yet, nobody had bothered to ask him or even mentioned it. This was supposed to be his holiday. His break from years of hard work in the business and never having a break for more than a long weekend. As much as he felt for Mia, he assumed it was merely teenage hormones going wild and nothing a good talk wouldn’t fix.
Mark, the little weasel. Instead of dealing with it, he was sending Mia over.

“I wouldn’t,” she replied with more force than she had intended.
Now he laughed. “You would so.”
He opened the door and, with a gentle push on her back, moved her inside. Sarah walked straight towards her bedroom with a mix of disappointment, anger, and…relief.
“Night, Marky.”
“No hot chocolate?”
She stopped and turned, considering the idea of a nice drink as well as Markus’ company. He’d moved closer, and, again, his blue eyes sent a rush through her that went right to her toes. It was only when his thumb brushed across her cheeks that she realised she was crying.
She cuddled up against his chest, with his strong arms around her.
“You should’ve told me,” she whispered.
“Which part? That you forgot about the hot chocolate?”
“About Timmy.”
He placed a light kiss on her forehead. “It wasn’t for me to say anything.”
“You should’ve asked Oliver to say something.”
That made him laugh, and she looked up again.
“What did you mean you don’t have to pretend?”
The silence stretching between them was almost tangible.
“Sarah?”
“Uh-huh.”
“You know this is not right.”
She shook her head, and he choked back a chuckle, before he dipped his head to kiss her.

Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

#MFRWHooks “other girls were keen to share a shift with Jack.” #romance #mustread #amreading

♠♠  OUT NOW  ♠♠
I’m back ! Just travelled two weeks in NZ and had the most wonderful time … anyway … I’d like to share some more excerpts from my earlier book “Innocent Tears” – I hope you’ll enjoy the read. Thanks for stopping by.

 

Today’s Hook:

Emma stared at the phone in utter astonishment and then dialled the room number again.
“It’s Emma here, again,” she said with as much confidence as she could muster.
Mrs. Gibbs sighed. “Now what?”
“Mrs. Gibbs, my original call was primarily to inform you that Mr. McCormack is here,
and waiting for you in the hotel café.”
“Thank you, dear. I expect you upstairs at one o’clock.”
“Yes, ma’am.”
Emma hung up, rubbed her hands over her face, and then sighed in frustration. “Jack,” she said through the little gap of her hands.
Jack looked over and his mouth tugged into a smile. He came closer, leaned against the reception desk, and crossed one foot over the other.
“What’s up, sunshine?”
Emma widened the gap between her hands just a bit further to look at Jack. She shook her head and wearily said, “You don’t wanna know.”
He hooked his finger into her skirt and pulled her closer. “You mucked up?”
“Big time.”
Jack slowly took her hands away from her face. “How big?”
Letting out a small grunt of frustration at her own wrong doing, she said, “Big!”
He smiled, and if Emma hadn’t needed his help, she would have been annoyed with him. Her eyes met his and she sighed. Jack was an attractive man, even in this everboring- looking hotel uniform, which nicely hugged his toned chest and abs. She placed her hand on his chest and another sigh escaped her lips.
Jack’s eyes slightly narrowed. “Okay, Em, spill it.”
Emma met Jack’s gaze. She knew the look of his brown eyes so well from all their staring competitions they’d had, as to who would get the next drink out of the fridge. No wonder all the other girls were keen to share a shift with Jack – or even more.
“I told Mrs. Gibbs I would look after her. I couldn’t find anyone, you know, as in to look after the girl. It’s just something about her… she’s so–” Emma exhaled. “–so… I have no idea. Intimidating, like my old teacher. So I rang her to tell her that this man was here. The good looking one. You know who I mean, don’t you?” Emma didn’t wait for his
answer. “–and she wouldn’t listen, and asked me about the babysitter. The next thing I know… Oh Jack, what’ve I done?”

BLURB:
Becoming a parent can be daunting at the best of times, but for Flynn, a business lawyer in Melbourne, it almost pulls the feet from right underneath him. He’s become a father to six-year-old Nadine literally overnight! He had no idea about her existence, and the news throws him into chaos, even more so when he is asked to take over custody. With the help of Emma, an employee at the hotel where Nadine and her grandparents are staying, and his parents, Flynn tries to do the right thing. Yet, the right thing in his eyes differs from his parents’, and Emma is voicing her opinion as well. And right in the middle is little Nadine, still grieving the loss of her mother and finding a wonderful friend in Emma. There’s no doubt she’s afraid where and with whom she will settle. But in the end, it’s a letter Flynn receives that helps him figuring out what to do.

Today’s Hook:
Emma turned around and checked-in the next few guests. It was only after she had finished her shift that she was able to talk to Jack.
“Thanks for getting me into trouble again.”
Jack placed his arm around her, and gave her a kiss on her forehead. “Sorry for that.
But you seem to attract this guy.”
“Yes, and his focus lands on me every time I muck up.”
“You’ll be right. How about dinner at my place?”
Emma rolled her eyes. “Jerk!”
He grinned, and held his arms up in defence. “What?”

****

“You’ve got to be joking,” Flynn McCormack said into the phone. “What do you mean you need to see me?” Pacing up and down his office, he finally settled by the window. He looked out, his gaze wandering along the Yarra River, watching people strolling along the Southbank Promenade. He liked the view—seeing the people walking at different paces as they took in the sights, or looking for restaurants, or as they were simply in a rush to get to their next destination. His eyes wandered further up and took in the sight of the Eureka Tower. A small shiver went up his spine as he remembered what he had given up for being there; for making his life in Melbourne and for getting this job — something he often pushed to the back of his mind, because being a lawyer in Melbourne was all he’d ever wanted.
The conversation he was having wasn’t going well, and he let out a long breath. “Yes, I’ll be there. And this better be worth it.”

#MFRWHooks “He could’ve kissed her then and there.” #romance #mustread #99cents

♠♠ OUT NOW ♠♠

 

It all started with New Beginnings and continues on in More Beginnings. These are stories of the Levesque sisters and More Beginnings delves into the story of Mia.
Again, Ms. Blobel shares her talent of writing a suspenseful, romantic, emotional and terrific book. I was captured at the first page and couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next.
This book also brings us the story of Zach, Mia’s friend, and his emotional decisions he must make for happiness.
Bravo to Ms. Blobel on another book that will rest up with my favorites!

 

Today’s Hook:

“How did this conversation go so out of control?” she asked.
She turned and looked around, but he wasn’t quite sure why. Following her gaze, he spotted Mia on the sports oval, reminding him to catch up with her.
Natasha’s sudden words startled him. “Hey there. I’m Miss Peterson. Nice meeting you. You must be Sophie’s neighbour, who’s looking after Mia this weekend.”
He could’ve kissed her then and there. There was no doubt about it. Eyeing her hand that she held towards him, he finally took it.
“Nice meeting you, too, Miss Peterson.”
“My apologies, but I think I’m needed over at the… well, somewhere.”
Without any more words, she left him standing there, alone with his thoughts.
One kiss. One small kiss to taste those lips. That was all could think of. He watched the teacher walk away across the oval until she was approached by a group of students. In the middle of their conversation, she tilted her head slightly and looked at him, and he was sure he saw a small smile on her lips. He returned her smile and kept watching her until he remembered why he was here in the first place.

One small kiss.

 

BLURB:
Zach Taylor, an escort in Sydney, living in Hobart, enlists the help of Natasha Peterson when his teenage friend, Mia, runs away. He soon finds out that the ‘dragon’ is really more of a kitten. And although Natasha, Mia’s teacher, is attracted to him as well, she has her own problems to deal with, not to mention her initial reaction to Zach’s occupation.

Will Zach’s job keep him from a chance to be with Natasha?

Life is good for teenager Mia Levesque. But when Darren Schuster shows up in Hobart, she knows something is up once Sophie and Mark cut their weekend away short and rush home in the middle of the night. When Sophie won’t answer Mia’s questions, emotions run high, and Zach confirms Darren’s identity to Mia. Disappointed, angry, and feeling alone, Mia runs away.

Will life settle back into a routine for Mia once she finds out about the stranger in her life?

Today’s Hook:

“She’s come a long way.”
Brought back from his thoughts he turned to find his cute little dragon was standing right next to him.
“Mrs. Peterson.”
“Miss,” she corrected him, which made him smile.
“Miss,” he repeated slowly and saw a little flush on her cheeks, which made him want to smile even more.
She blew out a ragged breath. “Anyway, Mia did confirm that you’re her babysitter.”
He said nothing but did raise a brow at her.
“Well, you have to admit that it does … you know–”
“Nope.”
“Good grief. It’s very rare to have a man your age being a babysitter for a teenage girl.”
Zach laughed. Even more so when she blushed.
“I should be offended,” he told her. “A man my age?”
She flustered. “That’s … that’s not what I meant. You know, I meant as in—”
To hold back another burst of laughter, he wiped his thumb across his lips. “I think I get what you mean. You owe me, though.”
“I beg your pardon?”
“You offended me.”
Hands on hips, she replied, “I did no such thing.”
He narrowed his eyes.
“How did this conversation go so out of control?” she asked.

DEFYING RULES

A little reminder in the last post, Addy returned home from work to find her house broken in.

DEFYING RULES is set along the Australian Great Ocean Road and tells the story of Ethan Tomlin, single dad, and manager of a hotel chain.

This is still a WIP, so critique away.

Thanks … and enjoy 🙂

And, he was a school parent. A big reason to not think of him as an attractive man. Or think of him at all.
“Are you okay?” he asked.
With heat creeping up her cheeks, she figured he meant the break in and nodded.
He scratched the back of his head. “I’m not your nosy neighbour, don’t get me wrong, but I saw the police and remembered Nick telling me your family’s in Melbourne. Anything I can help you with?”
She sighed inwardly. Not only attractive, but very generous as well. Shaking her head, she replied, “I’m fine, but I appreciate your offer.”
“Will you be all right to stay here on your own? I’m sure we can organise a room at the hotel for a few nights.”
Something stirred inside. His caring nature and his generosity were so overwhelming, and possibly the stress of the previous two hours, she didn’t want to but she started to cry.
Ethan stepped even closer and gently drew her into an embrace. Common sense told her to pull away, but it was such a relief to finally be able to let out all the pent-up emotions. The tension, the fear, and her body’s betrayal at the wrong time.

“Do you know Ethan?”
She blinked once or twice, surprised by Nick’s dad emerging out of the car, as well as the fact that he was known to the police.
Was that good?
Or bad?
“He’s a school parent. I see him sometimes at school. His son is in my class,” she replied with a little smile on her lips.
“Little Nick’s one of your students?”
She noticed the change of expression on his face with a gleam in his eyes and nodded, then moved her head and stared at Ethan as he came closer.
“We’ll be in contact, Ms Ryker.”
Again, she simply nodded and watched him walk to his car.
The two men met half way down her driveway near the police car and shook hands. Their voice carried softly with the little afternoon breeze, but Addy wasn’t able to decipher any words. Not sure whether to wait for Ethan or to go inside, she decided on waiting.
After the two men said their goodbyes, Ethan met her gaze and a slow smile curved up the corners of his mouth. It seemed like an eternity until he made it to the door, and she noticed her pulse racing despite her best efforts to calm herself down with a few deep breaths and a count from twenty down to one. He was attractive, no doubt, but she didn’t know him and was surprised by her body’s reaction to him. After all, he wasn’t the first attractive man she’d ever met.
And, he was a school parent. A big reason to not think of him as an attractive man. Or think of him at all.

DEFYING RULES

After some whale watching and serious relaxation in South Australia, I’m back with more snippets ☺ A little reminder in the last post, Addy returned home from work to find her house broken in.

DEFYING RULES is set along the Australian Great Ocean Road and tells the story of Ethan Tomlin, single dad, and manager of a hotel chain.

This is still a WIP, so critique away.

Thanks … and enjoy 🙂

accent-clipart-13309573511112670181decorative-lines-2_large

Experiencing chills down her spine, she blew out a long sigh of relief when she finally heard the police siren approaching only a few minutes later.
What came next was like a blur for Addy. Over the next hour or so, the police inspected the house and asked lots of questions. At some stage, she followed them inside the house. Tentatively, though, as if she was intruding on someone else’s privacy. She shuddered at the thought that someone had gone through her belongings, touched her things. She felt violated and exposed. Room by room, she checked whether anything was missing, a police officer always close by, making notes.
But there wasn’t anything unaccounted for as far as Addy was able to see. She signed a statement before the police was packing up, about to leave.
Exhausted and drained, she stood at the front of the door with Officer Clark, hoping for him to leave soon as well. All she wanted was to crawl into a corner and cry.
“William should be around within the next twenty minutes to fix the front door.”
“Thank you.” She was still overwhelmed by what happened, so it sounded more like a whisper than her normal voice.
“Will you be okay?” he asked.
She nodded, thinking she was going to call her parents to ask them to come earlier than planned.
Officer Clark handed her his card. They shook hands when, out of the corner of her eye, she saw a car pulling up in front of her house. It was an old beaten up pick-up truck, and although it looked familiar, her brain gave her a complete blank as to whom it might belong to. Not that she was good with cars at the best of times. They were one or the other colour and that was as far as her knowledge went. Officer Clark obviously noticed the car as well and gave her a questioning look.
“Do you know Ethan?”
