#MFRWHooks “He looks gorgeous.” #books #Wednesdayblog #blogger


Happy Wednesday everyone.
Hope you’ll enjoy another “hook” from “Journey to her Dreams “. I’ve moved forward a little but it should be easy to follow.

Today’s Hook:

She gave a slow nod. “Okay. I’ll be right back.”
Hollie took the glass of water and made her way through the crowd to Alex, trying not to spill anything.
Placing the drink on the table, she leaned a bit closer to be heard over the noise. “Jeremy just invited me for a drink.”
Alex’s eyes grew wide. “Oh, nice.” A grin spread across her face. “So, what are you doing here, then? Off you go, this is your chance. He looks gorgeous.”
“I don’t know, Alex. What am I supposed to talk to him about?”
Alex stared at her in blank incomprehension. “The weather. Everyone always talks about the weather.” She gave Hollie a not so gentle push. “Look, if all fails, at least you saved some money on a lemon vodka.”
Hollie was still hesitant. Looking from her friend to Jeremy and back, she took a deep breath to calm herself.
“Go, for heaven’s sake. You’re beautiful, intelligent, and so many other things. Just go.”
Hollie slowly turned and again struggled through the crowd as she made her way to Jeremy. When he saw her coming, he rewarded her with a smile that simply took her breath away.

BLURB:

There must be a reason for her dreams…

Hollie Anderson, a young woman living in Tasmania, is content with life, even more so since she has met Jeremy. However, she has been having a recurrent dream that impacts her daily life, as well as her relationship, a dream that eventually takes her on a journey to Ireland.

Samantha Shaughnessy enjoys the success as Head of Advertising for a popular magazine in the Irish capital Dublin. Married to Padraic, she thinks she loves her husband, but when she meets Hollie under unusual circumstances, she needs to face the truth–and not just about her marriage.

When both women meet and find they share an unexpected tie to the past, will they finally be able to move on into relationships with the men they love? 

 “This blood-pumping novel will keep the reader hooked until the very end.” InD’tale Magazine

“Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this wonderful book and fall in love.” (5 star review)

Mat is a sexy, tattooed New Zealander with a strong sense of family and duty and Tiffany is a woman with a past that continues to haunt her. Can Mat help her overcome her demons and move on with the next phase of her life? Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. (5 star review)

4 stars – NEW BEGINNINGS is a very emotional read, one that is heartwarming as well as heart wrenching. It gives you hope in the act of human kindness and that good things do happen to good people. I highly recommend this book.

Happy Wednesday everyone.
Hope you’ll enjoy another “hook” from “Journey to her Dreams “.

Today’s Hook:

When she finally reached the bar, she ordered a lemon vodka as well as some water and as she searched for some change in her tight pockets, someone spoke to her.
“May I buy you this drink?”
Hollie looked up straight into Jeremy’s eyes.
“H-hi,” she stuttered. “So now you’d like to talk to me?”
He choked back a chuckle. “I had to take a phone call. My apologies. That’s why I’d like to shout you a drink.”
It did make sense. She vaguely remembered seeing him leave the club. Biting her lip, she moved her head to find Alex in the crowd, suddenly uncomfortable without her friend. Unaware, however, of Hollie’s situation, Alex was happily chatting with Ben.
Turning back to Jeremy, Hollie answered above the background noise, “Thank you. That’s very kind of you, but no thanks.”
“Just this one,” he persisted.
“I’m sorry, but my friend is waiting for me to bring her a glass of water. Maybe next time.”
Although tempted, something inside told her she wasn’t ready, yet, for the flirting and dating business. And like so often, she cursed her dreams for her hesitation. What did they mean? Why was she having them? And who was the woman?
Thanks to those dreams, she’d been second-guessing herself more and more often when it came to men, too worried the dreams had a meaning which she still had to figure out.
“How about you take the water to your friend and then return for a drink with me?”
Hollie exhaled a long breath. He didn’t give up easily, and as much as she was uncomfortable in the situation, something about him was irresistible.

#MFRWHooks “You’re cute as a button.” #books #RomanceReadClub #blogger


Happy Wednesday everyone.
Hope you’ll enjoy another “hook” from “Journey to her Dreams “.

Today’s Hook:

Hollie couldn’t imagine a life without Alex. They shared their happiness as well as their heartache, their love for movies, and their regular visits to the nightclubs. It was a bond for life, and many of their friends admired them for it.
“Anyway, I’ll see you later.” She disconnected the call and stood, starting the day her by joining her father downstairs for breakfast.
“Morning,” he greeted her with a cup of tea.
“Morning, Dad,” she replied as she grabbed a bowl and some cereal with milk.
“Heading out tonight?”
She sat at the table with a smile. “Yes, Dad, and, yes, I’ll be careful. What are you up to today?”
Shrugging, he sat next to her. “Helping Tom with the cattle, so I won’t be around for lunch.”
“No worries. I will have another go at the job application.”
He nodded. “You should get the job just for the efforts you put in.”
“Couldn’t agree more.”
After breakfast, Hollie decided on a walk around the property to clear her head before tackling the application. It’d been on her mind for days and once she started, she got so involved that time flew by and before she knew it, her father had prepared dinner.
Once they’d finished and cleared the kitchen, Hollie rushed upstairs, had a quick shower while considering what to wear for the night. Delaying the decision, she applied her makeup first. She never used much, but enough for her bright blue eyes to stand out. She inspected her image in the mirror and smiled, remembering her dad’s words, “You’re cute as a button.”
“What the hell is that supposed to mean, Dad?” she would ask him in a sulky voice.

#MFRWHooks “Oh, how I despise it when you call me that” #books #amreading #KindleUnlimited


Happy Wednesday everyone.
It’s been a while since I last posted, but we had lots happening in September. I’m posting another “hook” from “Journey to her Dreams “.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

Hollie slipped her arms into a worn out cardigan as she paced through the rooms of her apartment unable to find her ringing phone. She occupied only a small area upstairs in the attic of the farmhouse she shared with her father, but it certainly had everything she needed, including a spacious bedroom with the view of the Great Western Tiers.
And the phone kept ringing, aggravating her even more until she finally found it under a stack of mail from the previous day.
“Hello?”
“Lost the phone again, hadn’t you?” Alex’s amusement was apparent in her voice.
“I had a feeling it would be you who kicks me out of bed at this ungodly hour of the day,” Hollie replied, holding back a yawn as she gazed out the window. During winter, she occasionally saw the snow on the top of the mountain peaks glaring in such beauty that she didn’t understand why people always asked her to move into town.
“Are you coming tonight?” Alex wanted to know.
Hollie sat on the couch, propping her feet up on the cluttered coffee table. “Alexandra Rose Cayhill—”
“Oh, how I despise it when you call me that.”
Hollie let out a soft laugh. “You’ve known me since kindergarten and I’ve always spent my Saturday nights with you. At least since you’ve had your car.”
“Hey,” her friend protested, but then laughed. “Awesome. Great to be appreciated. I’d better start thinking about what to wear.”

Today’s Hook:

Trying to help the woman, Hollie Anderson reached out to her, but in vain. Instead, she woke with a start, sweat covering her body. Sitting up in her bed, Hollie rubbed the fright and sleep out of her eyes while exhaling a long breath willing her rapid heartbeat to settle. Her chest ached, as if someone had pushed her down and placed a great amount of weight on it. Leaning back into her pillow, she closed her eyes. Why did she keep dreaming of this woman, and who was she? The frequency of the dreams was beginning to take a toll on her and affecting her life.

Happy Wednesday everyone.
I hope you enjoyed last week’s snippet from ” Journey to her Dreams “. Today I’d like “to hook you” with another teaser.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

With an almost feral scowl, he forcefully rejected her in return, the movement so sudden and fierce as he pushed her against the wall, she not only hit her head, but it also drove all the air from her lungs.
Despite the pain, relief rushed through her as she watched him walk into the bathroom. Taking a couple of small, easy breaths, she retreated into the guest room down the hallway, where she took a little teddy bear out of the bottom drawer in the cupboard and sat on the bed. Cradling her companion, she ignored the tears that trickled down her face.
She quickly swiped her cheeks when he came towards the room and carefully placed her teddy bear back into the rear of the drawer underneath a pink and yellow baby blanket.
“How about I prepare us a nice dinner?” he offered, the expressionless look on his face upsetting her even more.
Yet, with all the strength she was able to come up with, she smiled. It took so much effort and was as painful as what had just happened…yet, she smiled. “Sounds good,” was all she was able to say.

#MFRWHooks “Please don’t.” #books #amreading


Happy Wednesday everyone.
… and welcome September … SPRING at this end of the world. Can’t wait for some warmer weather.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed last week’s snippet from “Echoes of the Past“. Today I’d like “to hook you” with a teaser from “Journey to her Dreams“.
ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

Her body trembled. With angst choking her, she begged him, “Please don’t.”
He took her hands and lifted them over her head as he pressed his body against hers. “Come on, baby. Don’t be like that,” he insisted, tracing her jaw with his lips. “It’s been a while.”
“Please stop. I’m really tired,” she pleaded as she tried to pull her hands out of his.
He looked at her with a slight grin. “Baby, you’re always tired.”
Her efforts to push him away were in vain. His tight grip around her wrists didn’t give her a chance to move out of his arms. Disappointed by him, she dropped her head, denying him her lips.
“I love you, sweetheart,” he murmured.
She was barely able to speak and each word she spoke hurt her throat. “Please,” she begged again, nearly sobbing. “Please don’t.”
He lowered his head, flicking her earlobe with his tongue. “Baby, I want you.”
She knew then she was fighting in vain. He wasn’t going to listen. With his body pressed against hers, his breathing became heavier. Turning her head away even more from him, she closed her eyes as pain shot through her body.

Hollie couldn’t take her eyes off his brown hair, his green
eyes, and his well-­tanned face. This guy had an obvious ability to
keep the conversation flowing, and she found herself unable to
resist his soft-­spoken voice. Before long, her tension eased a bit. She told him about her job and how she knew Davo. He did likewise and told her about his move from Hobart. She decided to like him, yet she wanted to go back to the comfort zone of her friends,
mainly Alex.
“Listen, Jeremy. It was nice meeting you, but I’ve truly have to go. There are still a few things I need to get sorted, and I don’t want to be too late  tonight,” Hollie said, pointing to her watch as a sign to Alex she wanted to leave.
He reached out and caught her hand in his. “How about I give you a lift?”
Looking at him, she couldn’t resist and smiled. “You are a persistent fellow, aren’t you?”

“Hi,” she stuttered. “Actually, thanks, but no thanks.”
“Hey, just this one,” he persisted.
“Honestly, I don’t think it would be fair. My friend is waiting for me to bring her a glass of water. Next time perhaps,” she heard herself saying. There was something inside her that wasn’t ready yet for the whole flirting and dating business.
But Jeremy wouldn’t take no for an answer. “How about you take the water over and come back for your drink?”
Hollie exhaled a small breath. He’d cornered her, and she didn’t like it. But there was something about him she wasn’t able to resist. She stared at him, and his mischievous eyes prolonged the moment.
Crap! And stupid me for melting in those green eyes.
There was nothing left to do but give in. “Okay, I’ll be right back.” She picked up the glass of water and made her way through the masses back again to Alex. “This guy just invited me for a drink,” she said to Alex.
“Who?”
Hollie glanced uneasily over her shoulder. “Jeremy.”
“Great. So what are you doing here then?” Alex teased. “Off you go, this is your chance. He is quite a hunk, isn’t he?”
“I’d appreciate a bit of help here, Alex. What am I supposed to do?”
Alex shook her head. “You’re nuts, Hollie. Look at him. A dream of a man. And…if all else fails, at least you saved some money on a lemon vodka.” Alex grinned mischievously at her and pushed her off the seats. “Go, for heaven’s sake. You’re beautiful, intelligent, and all the other things. Just go.”
So Hollie returned to Jeremy, who was talking to another guy. Her heart thudded loudly, and she wasn’t all that sure about this idea anymore. When Jeremy saw her stepping closer, though, he broke into a leisurely smile.
“Here’s your drink.” He handed over the lemon vodka.
“Thanks.” Hollie was so nervous she was hardly able to speak, let alone think about what to say to him.
