#MFRWHooks “I’m ruining your vacation” #romance #mustread #Bookboost

♠♠  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”

Enjoy ☺

 

Today’s Hook:

The waitress took their order and, even though Ivy asked for only a small sandwich, he added an extra serving of fries for her. Annoyed, she was determined not to eat it.
“For what it’s worth, I’m not running,” she said after a long moment of silence.
“Good for you. I’m not runnin’ either. Until three hours ago I was enjoyin’ me holidays.”
That made her look up, somewhat hurt inside. “I’m ruining your vacation?”
He laughed again. “Actually no. Ya makin’ it more interesting. Especially as your thoughts are turning your hair into smoke. What crazy idea have ya come up with?”
She glared at him.
“Mate, ya hot and cold. Obviously needin’ the ride, but scared I might be a lunatic.”
The waitress returned with their food, and Ivy was pleased for the interruption of the conversation. It gave her time to think. Time to think how to answer. Because bottom line was, she did need that ride and, deep inside, she believed he was a charming landscaper from Australia. But then again, she’d thought Dylan had been the love of her life. How wrong she’d been with that assumption. She had loved him and, completely honest with herself, still did. She missed him and, in the time since she’d left him, there had been many moments during which she wanted to call him to tell him exactly how much.
But life wasn’t a fairy tale. With her working all day, and Dylan spending almost every penny, life wouldn’t ever get better. And she wanted better. So much better.
“Are you? A lunatic I mean.”

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 held her gaze but wasn’t sure what else to say or do, especially as she simply stood in front of him, frozen to the spot.
“My name is Ivy,” she said after a long moment.
“Hedera. An evergreen climbing or ground-creeping woody plant in the family Araliaceae.”
With a frown, she stared at him. “I really didn’t understand that one.”
He laughed. “Sorry, mate. I got carried away. I’m a landscaper. Ivy is a climbing plant.” Scratching the back of his head, he added, slightly self-conscious, “And, of course, a beautiful name.”
Letting out a soft laugh, she stepped into the motorhome while Jared went around and slid behind the wheel before driving back onto the road. There was a long silence, and he started to feel uneasy. Usually, he was good with silence. In fact, he loved it. But at that moment, the silence made him uncomfortable.
“So, what brings ya out into the middle of the sticks?”
There was no reply, so he turned to look at her. A big frown appeared between her brown eyes, causing him to let out a small sigh.
“I thought you all speak English as well?”
“We do,” she said with a soft snort. “But I’m not so sure whether Australians do.”
With a grin he replied, “Now, don’t be cheeky, Ivy.”
“Don’t bite the hand that feeds you, my mom always said.” She laughed. “No way would I make fun of you.”
“So, you’re expectin’ a meal as well?”
There was a moment of silence again, and he glanced over. The smile was gone and panic was written all over her face.

Today’s Hook:

Acknowledging that she wasn’t much into sharing details like her name, he opened the door for her. “Where are ya headin’?” he asked.
A smile started in her eyes and played with the corner of her lips. There was an appreciation in her gesture, and he returned the smile.
“Could you drop me off at the next stop?” she asked hesitantly.
“Most certainly, but where are ya headin’?”
She shrugged. “Kingman?”
“Is that on this road?”
Inclining her head, she replied, “Yes, it is. It should be less than a hundred miles along this highway.”
“Then hop in.”
She turned to get into the motorhome, and he took in her small stature and the narrow shoulders which seemed even smaller in her tight, red T-shirt. Jared noticed her cargoes were just hanging onto her hips. A nice steak wouldn’t go astray on these hips. Suddenly she stopped and moved to look at him. “Thank you,” she whispered.

Today’s Hook:

“I am indeed.” He watched her looking ahead towards the horizon. “So you wanna hitch a ride?”
Jared studied her intently. Her hesitation indicated she didn’t want to, but her current situation didn’t give her many choices. But they were in the middle of nowhere, with the next place a fair few miles away. Something inside him stirred and he wished he were able to give her a guarantee. Any guarantee.
“Name’s Jared,” he said as he opened his door and walked around the motorhome. Leaning against the vehicle, he looked at her, taking in her beautiful, make-up free face. She was pretty. Thin, but pretty. When her brown eyes met his, he experienced another one of those heart tugs. He tried to look right past her, but it was impossible. Her eyes were like magnets.
“Jared,” he repeated and held out his hand.
She looked over his shoulder and into the distance, and he assumed she was fighting with herself, part of her wanting to get off the road, the other part being worried.
“Anybody else travelling with you?” she asked just above a whisper.
“Nope.”
She closed her eyes, took a deep breath, and, after a brief moment, reached for his hand. “Nice meeting you.”

Today’s Hook:

Jared pushed the button to lower the passenger window.
“Hi there,” the woman outside said.
Her pale face caused a little concern within him. Her face was strained despite the smile on her face, but her droopy brown eyes and moist forehead told him, she’d been out there for a long time and most likely tired to her bones.
There was something fascinating about this woman with the wild, curly, blond hair and brown eyes. Her eyes! Even in this brief moment, he was captivated by her chocolate brown eyes. So full of warmth, passion, and life, despite her tiredness.
He wasn’t sure why he had stopped. It was supposed to be a holiday for him. A getaway from his work and from people. His job was his solitude that came with it most of the times. However, after spending a day in Sin City and exploring the Hoover Dam earlier that morning, he was actually looking forward to a little distraction from his own company. It surprised him, yet an unusual emptiness inside begged him for some company. And he was brought up to help others. This was exactly what he was doing.
“G’day!” He stared at her and something tugged at his heart. Not that he wanted that. He had no room for women, let alone American ones. They were all on this earth to make life complicated, and with a mental eye roll, he thought of Mark who was constantly running around for Sophie or Hope, even though Mark’s wife was one in a million and little Hope was simply adorable, especially asleep.
“Ya know it’s dangerous to hitch a ride,” he said when she was still quiet.
She stared at him for a moment, but then replied with the typical American twang in her voice. “I know you said something, but I have no idea what.”
He chuckled. “It is dangerous to hitchhike,” he repeated with exaggerated pronunciation.
The woman stepped a bit closer to the window. “Are you from Austria?”
He let out a bark of laughter.
“Australia, I meant.” Judging by the colour rising up her cheeks, she was clearly embarrassed by the mistake.

Today’s Hook:

Although unchanging, the scenery kept him interested. Yet, Jared was pleased when he finally made it to Vegas later that afternoon, and after driving around a little to get an idea of the city, he found an RV Park, and checked in. About to exit through the office door, he turned and asked the man who had served him, “Mate, what on earth is PedXing?”
The guy chuckled. “Short for pedestrian crossing,” he replied.
Jared let out a snort. “Yeah, I don’t think I would’ve guessed that one. I’m glad they told me to look for RV and not Caravan Park.”
With a little shake of his head, he waved his hand as a thanks and left, still chuckling about the PedXings abbreviation. A country speaking the same language and more or less having the same background, yet, being so different surprised him. But why? Why did it? After all, it’d been over two hundred years that each country had evolved in a different way.
Jared returned to his motorhome, drove to his allocated spot, and got ready for the night. It’d been a full, packed twenty-four hours, leaving him exhausted and tired. He was going to explore Sin City the next day.

Jared’s gaze moved to Sophie, who smiled at her little girl. Then he caught Mark with a big grin plastered on his face watching his wife and daughter. Blowing out a little sigh, Jared noticed out of the corner of his eye how Josh took Mia’s hand into his own.
That was it. He’d had enough. It was kind of the last drop in a full bucket. He was sick of everybody else around him being happy except him. Without a doubt, he was pleased for them, but it was time that he took matters into his own hands and got out of his daily routine. He wanted more in life than getting up in the morning and working eight to ten hours only to return to an empty home. It wasn’t necessarily that he was looking for a partner — although that would have been nice — but, he looked for something in life. Something to make him more content or his life more fulfilled.
With his thoughts drifting off as he gazed into the distance, he only vaguely followed the wedding ceremony.

Today’s Hook:

Smoothing the lapels of his jacket, he took in the flower arrangements in the chapel. A sense of pride rose in him at how well it’d come together after all. Natasha had been so determined to use roses, but in the end she’d listened to his advice, and chosen November Lilies. They were everywhere, including the bouquet, and the arrangements came off stunning yet humble. Exactly what she’d told him she wanted.
“You did well with the flowers,” Mia whispered into his ear, hauling him back from his thoughts.
“Thanks. I thought so, too,” he replied. “Had to dig deep to remember how to do all of it.”
“Isn’t that your job?” Josh asked.
Josh was Mia’s boyfriend. They’d been going out for the last three years and were still going strong, a major feat considering they were in the strife of their teenaged years.
Jared was tempted to explain the difference between a florist and landscaping to Josh as well, but decided not to.
He didn’t have to, after all.
“He’s a landscaper,” Sophie added to the conversation. “There’s a big difference.”
Jared cocked an eyebrow towards Sophie, who was desperately trying to get her three-year-old daughter, Hope, to drink her milk before her afternoon nap. He knew very well that she never understood the difference either.
Josh chuckled. “Yeah, mate, but green is green, and plants are plants. Right?”

♠♠  OUT NOW  ♠♠
I’d like to share some excerpts from my earlier book “Innocent Tears” – I hope you’ll enjoy the read. Thanks for stopping by.

 

Today’s Hook:

Like most Mondays Emma had accepted a lift from Jack, who worked an extra hour
Mondays and Fridays to cover for a longer lunch, when he was allowed to use the gym
in the basement. Now she was enjoying a delicious breakfast at the hotel’s café before starting her shift in an hour. She looked up and saw her own blue eyes looking back at her in the reflection of the glass divider between the booths. A strand of hair had escaped her ponytail, and she secured it with a bobby pin. Thinking of the girl from the other day,
she hoped the girl wouldn’t get teased for her freckles like Emma did. Her mother had always told her, it gave her a mischievous look, yet in her twenties, she’d prefer to look attractive.
“Excuse me?”
Emma turned and looked into Nadine’s beautiful eyes. “Good morning, Nadine. It was Nadine, wasn’t it?”
The girl’s face lit up. “Yes, but Mum always called me Naddie.”
“May I call you Naddie?”
Emma filled her glass with more orange juice, all the while studying the little girl out of the corner of her eye. Nadine held on to an oversized doll, which seemed to be dressed in the same outfit as Nadine—pink T-shirt imprinted with My beautiful princess, a denim skirt with a princess on it surrounded by lots of pink hearts in all sizes, and pink shiny sandals. Her brown hair had been done up in a ponytail.
“Where are your grandparents, Naddie?”
“Still in the room. Talking on the phone. Grandmother is always on the phone,” Nadine added.
“Do you think you’re allowed to have a bit of breakfast with me?”
With excitement spreading across Nadine’s face, she nodded her head eagerly and sat down opposite Emma.
“Do they know where you are?”
The little head moved up and down again and with her eyes wide open she said, “Told Grandpa.”
“I like your outfit,” Emma said while she took another glass and filled it with juice.
Nadine took one of the rolls. “Mum’s friend gave it to me for my birthday.”
“I take it you like princesses.”
“Yes!” And that was literally the keyword to get Nadine started. She was bubbling with information about her doll collection and which dolls she had at home, which one she would like to have, and all the princess movies. A kind of dizziness spread through Emma’s head overwhelmed by all the details, but she enjoyed listening to her new friend.
Yet, all of a sudden, a firm voice interrupted them.
“Nadine!”
The young girl’s face instantly lost its spark.

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.”

4 starsThe Romance Review – 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.
