Happy Wednesday everyone. I’ve decided to move on to another book I’d like to share with you. It’s an older one, the second book in my Australian Sports Stars Series. “Let Me Love You” is Oliver’s story. ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

“Who said I’m interested?”
That seemed to throw him somewhat. Eyes wide open, he stared at her. It made her smile.
He raked his hand through his hair. “Sure? I could show you Melbourne’s favourite sights.”
Now she had to laugh. “I’m sure you could.” “Damn that Erik. I need to have a good word with him on Thursday.”
“No,” she nearly screamed. “You can’t tell him.”
Trouble with her uncle was the last thing she wanted, the gossip would flow right back to her parents and then she’d be treated like a teenager being warned to stay away from the bad boys. She sighed. Her parents had let her move to Melbourne, but she knew they worried. Stories about her spending time with one of the baseball players was the last thing she needed them to hear. Then she felt his hand under her chin, and with a soft touch of his finger, he lifted her head. Meeting his gaze, her whole body was on alert. But he didn’t say anything. Studying her face, he stood there as a long silence engulfed them both.
“You’re tense,” he said matter-of-factly.
Tense wasn’t the word for what she was. She was beyond tense. Strung like an archery bow was more like it. But he was like forbidden fruit.

BLURB:

Oliver Dempsey, pitcher for a Melbourne baseball club, loves the women, and they love him…
But he keeps them at an arm’s length, and when he meets Tamara, he’s unprepared for the attraction he feels for her. Told by his coach that she’s off limits, only draws him in more.

Tamara Amis moved to Melbourne to find some distance between her past and herself…
With the help of her uncle, the coach of a Melbourne baseball club, she quickly finds a job, and a place to live. Yet, one meeting with the handsome pitcher stirs unexpected emotions that threaten to overwhelm her.

It’s Oliver’s injury that brings them together, but as they find out about each other’s pasts, how can they be ready to share a future?

 “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. I’ve decided to move on to another book I’d like to share with you. It’s an older one, the second book in my Australian Sports Stars Series. “Let Me Love You” is Oliver’s story. ENJOY ♥

Today’s Hook:

How dare he?
First, she was a challenge, now she was jumpy? “I am not jumpy,” she replied as calmly as possible.
Meeting her gaze dead on, he let out a long breath. “Look, I’m not sure what Coach Becker’s told you about me, but I’m not a bad person.”
The fact that he’d thought her defiance was about him made her smile.
Tilting his head, he grinned. “Well, whatta ya know. You should do that more often. It suits you.”
“Oliver,” she emphasised his name. “My uncle has not said a word about you. You’re giving yourself too much credit.”
“Why the hostility? I saw it before, you can be  nice.”
She looked away, trying to focus on something in the distance, anything to avoid looking into his eyes. She watched a couple taking their shoes off to dip their toes into the water. Tamara sighed, now staring at her feet, because she knew if she met his gaze, she could so easily melt into those eyes. A little chuckle escaped her. Of course, her uncle had warned her about Oliver.
“Stay away from him. He’s trouble,” he’d said. Right after telling her what a great talent Oliver had and how much he wished Oliver to be less loyal to Australia so he could make it big in the States. Apparently, Oliver wanted none of it.
“Why,” she’d asked. The obvious question.
“Women love him and he loves them. And as soon as he’s had enough of them, he throws them away.”
She’d expected an answer referring to Oliver’s loyalty to Australia and wasn’t sure what to make of her uncle’s reply. Her scars were still fresh, but with her move to Melbourne, she had promised herself to open up again. That day she’d seen Oliver coming off the field her whole body had responded—his eyes, the muscles under his tight shirt, his smile, and the sound of his voice. She’d nearly melted away right there next to her uncle. Tamara wasn’t looking for another marriage, but she missed a man’s hand on her skin. The feeling of being touched and caressed. She missed being hugged and ached for the simple feeling of having someone around her. But how could she even have these thoughts, these cravings without cheating on Jason?

Today’s Hook:

Tamara startled when she heard a voice behind her call her name. With the noise of the waves, and the people around her, she didn’t recognise it and instinctively walked faster, her eyes fixed on her path ahead. Focussing on the buildings in front of her, she quickened her steps.
“Hey!”  
Heaving a big sigh, she stopped. Shoulders sagging, she knew he’d followed her. She let that thought sink in for a moment before she turned around. Had she forgotten something? Or was he following her to apologise? Her heart ached, and she thought of Jason. Although no man would ever be able to take his place, deep inside she was afraid of being alone for the rest of her life. Tamara watched Oliver coming closer. Her gaze was drawn to his lean body, his long legs, covered by faded jeans, moving swiftly along the beach. Only a few seconds later, Oliver was by her side.
“Bout time.”
Damn, he had a way to annoy her. With her bubble burst, she put her hands on her hips. “I don’t usually respond to hey.”
He cocked a brow. “I did call your name first. I’ve noticed you’re a bit jumpy.”

Today’s Hook:

Patting Oliver’s shoulder, he (Markus) asked, “How are you going with the girl from the other weekend?”
He shook his head. “Don’t remind me. I have a feeling she expected baseball to be a lucrative sport. Once she found out it isn’t, she was gone.”
Markus laughed, but Oliver noticed his friend was still staring at Tamara. “You’re quite smitten with her, aren’t you?” he said. Markus shook his head. “Nope. Intrigued, but  not smitten.”
Oliver was, though. And it irked him. She wasn’t his type. His type of woman was drawn to him, was attracted to him, and looked sensational. Tamara was different. Yes, she looked good, and as he quickly stole another look, he admitted she had a nice behind as well. Yet somehow, there was something about her he could not place. Something about her grabbed him. It confused the hell out of him to find himself drawn to her. Shaking his head, he followed Markus to the pub across the road, still wondering whether it was because his coach not only asked him to stay away from her, but also told him she was off limits.
Off limits?
They weren’t words he was familiar with. He’d asked why and the simple answer was she had a hell of a year. He didn’t get any more details. Off limits his ass.
“Mate, I need to do something. Ty will be here in a sec. I’ll catch up with you tomorrow.”
Not waiting for a reply, he left Markus standing at the door. There was something he had to do.

Today’s Hook:

That was one reason, all right, but the other reason was her behaviour the other day. The panic in her eyes, the same panic he thought he’d seen on her face when Markus had held out his hand as he’d introduced himself. Not to mention his coach’s stern warning to stay away from her.
So what had made her come back? Was it really Markus?
Frowning, he shook his head. “No, that’s not it,” he finally replied. “But you should’ve seen her eyes last week,” he said more to himself than to Markus.
“Oh, I saw them just then,” his friend replied with a little chuckle.
“You’re such an ass, man.”
“What? You said, I should’ve seen her eyes. I did. They’re beautiful. I mean like…”
But he never finished his sentence, and as Oliver looked after Tamara, the sudden silence, broken only by the sound of the waves of Port Phillip Bay,  gave him a shiver.
“What did you do to her?” Markus asked suddenly.
He shrugged, not willing to admit to his friend that she occupied his mind far more that he liked. “She’s screwed, mate. Coach Becker told me she’s off limits, but man, I tell ya, she’s screwed.”

Today’s Hook:

Tamara and Markus both stared at him, and he shrugged his shoulder. “What?”
Markus lifted an eyebrow. “I seem to be missing something here.”
Tamara placed a hand on his arm. “It’s okay. I’ve been…let’s say…” She hesitated. “A bitch?” Oliver helped, but he regretted it straight away.
“I certainly have not!” she retorted before he could retract his words.
Markus had offered him the perfect chance to spend more time with her, and here he was behaving like an idiot. He tried to shake off this odd reaction inside him.
“Challenge might have been the wrong word,” he finally said.  
She smiled at him and removed her hand from Markus’ arm. “Perhaps another time, but thanks for the invite. Do you play baseball?”
Markus shook his head. “Nope. Soccer.”
Then she turned and walked off. Again. Hands on hips, Oliver watched her making her way to the pier. “Can you believe this woman?”
When he didn’t get a reply, he looked at his friend. Markus was watching her as well, but with a lovestruck smile on his face. “Back off, mate. She’s trouble!”
Markus snorted. “You’re an ass. Just because she doesn’t fall for your charm, she’s trouble?”

Today’s Hook:

Oliver’s jaw grew tight as he stared after her.
Markus chuckled. “Your charm doesn’t seem to work on her. What’s her problem?”
Oliver looked at his friend and shrugged, when out of the corner of his eye he noticed Tamara stopped. Head nearly on her chest and raking her hands through her long hair, she seemed to contemplate something. He hadn’t lied when he’d told her he was trying to figure her out, but he admitted the word challenge had been the wrong choice. The challenge wasn’t her per se, but figuring out what made her so jumpy. Still watching her, he hoped to get another chance to explain his unfortunate choice of words.
“I have no idea why she’s so fucked up, but we might find out,” he said quietly as he nodded towards her.
Tamara had turned around and come back. She held out her hand towards Markus. “I do apologise, Markus.” Then she took a deep breath before she continued. “The last year has been a bit rough, to say the least, but I suppose it’s no excuse for my bad behaviour. My name is Tamara. I work at the A-Stadium, where—” She pointed towards Oliver. “Where your friend does his training every week.”
Markus’ lips tugged into a grin as he followed her finger to Oliver. Then he met her eyes.
“Nice meeting you, Tamara. Wanna join us for a drink?”
“Hell no, she doesn’t,” Oliver interrupted before he could actually think about it.

Today’s Hook:

The man from the pier joined them, and Tamara was grateful for the subject to be diverted. Still trying to calm her frustration, she took another deep breath.
“This is Markus. A friend of mine.”
She closed her eyes momentarily, preparing herself for more chit chat. This evening had suddenly become out of control, and the moment of guilt when she’d enjoyed their little conversation had long gone. Tamara looked up at his friend Markus. It didn’t surprise her that he was as good looking as Oliver. Even in the evening darkness she noticed his blue eyes. Markus had the same athletic physique as Oliver. His blond hair was cut short, but it had a small wave in it, which gave him a mischievous look. More so with the constant smile on his face.
Markus held out his hand. “Nice meeting you.”
She never replied, though, simply turned, and walked away. She didn’t owe them anything, especially not her time. Challenge? She wasn’t cut out for chit chat, and she certainly wasn’t his challenge. Looking ahead, she stared into the distance, watching people moving along, laughing and enjoying their evening. The sudden guilt that rose within her didn’t surprise her, but what did was the pang of regret. She stopped and replayed the moment in her head. The panic combined with her frustration and messy feelings for Oliver had been at such a high level, it’d been an instinctive reaction to walk away. She sighed as she stared at her feet. No, she didn’t owe them anything, but she did owe her parents to apply the good manners she’d been taught. Closing her eyes, she let the breeze caress her face before turning around. Some things had nothing to do with whether she liked it or not, but with the fact that they are right or wrong. And she’d been wrong.

Today’s Hook:

“Fancy seeing you here.”
Tamara shot around at the sound of the familiar voice and stood in one smooth motion. Staring at Oliver, she noticed how he waved to someone back at the pier.
“Are you following me?” she asked when he looked back at her.
He laughed softly without mirth. “Cupcake, this is one of the most popular places in a radius of about fifty k’s, and you’re sitting here on your own. You draw attention to yourself like a magnet.”
Looking around, she realised he was right. Suddenly that simple fact and the realisation she was so exposed, gave her a shiver. Uncomfortable with the situation, she wrapped her arms around her waist before meeting his gaze again.
“What?” she asked in a whisper.
He shrugged. “Trying to figure you out.”
His reply surprised her. Deep inside she enjoyed his attention, and for a moment, she suppressed her guilt that she’d only recently lost her husband…yet she was intrigued and possibly surprised as well, as to why he wanted to figure her out.
“Why?”
Shoving his hands in his pockets, Oliver rocked back on his heels. He lifted one shoulder in a shrug. “Perhaps I like you against my better judgement.” A smile crossed his lips, and he shook his head in what seemed a bit of amusement. “Or maybe if I figured you out, I’d like you more.”
“More?” she asked.
 He laughed. “I know. It sounds impossible. But, hey, I’ve always liked a challenge.”
Gone was the moment when she’d enjoyed his attention, replaced by a building irritation in her chest. She took a minute to get it under control. With raised eyebrows, she asked calmly, “A challenge? I had no idea I was a challenge.”

Today’s Hook:

The following week, Tamara went to St. Kilda for a walk along the beach. It was early in the evening, but the streets were already busy with traffic. The sidewalk was packed with tourists and people looking for a place to eat. By the time she reached the shore, a headache had started, and she could feel the tension in her shoulders. She avoided the people around her and headed straight to a nearby rock formation to enjoy the view. It was beautiful. On the horizon, the sun kissed the sea, and the reflection of light danced across the water like glittering fairies. It made her feel the closest to relaxed that she’d been for a long time. Even the tension in her body started to ease a little.
