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:

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. 

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?

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.

Today’s Hook:

Tamara had a sudden urge to tell Jason about her day. About that silly joke one of the girls had told her. Or how she had pressed the wrong button on the printer and created chaos. God, how much she missed him. Every day and every single minute. He’d been taken away from her way too early. Such a senseless and violent death.
She stopped the car in front of the small house she rented. Studying the yard in front of her, image of his dead body flashed in front of her eyes, and tears started to flow down her cheeks. She wiped the tears with the back of her hand and turned off the engine. Once she reached her house, she immediately headed to the bathroom to splash some cold water on her face. Staring at her mirror image, she asked herself for the thousandth time how it possible that life put her through such hardship. She didn’t know the answer and would probably never know.

Today’s Hook:

Tamara slid inside the car, buckled up in one smooth motion, and let out her first breath in what felt like forever. Like being chased, she drove the car out of the car park and merged into traffic. As she headed down the road, the temptation to glance into the rear-view mirror overcame her. Oliver was still standing there watching, slowly fading into the distance. Replaying their brief conversation, she was positive he had wanted to help her. Frustrated with herself, she took another deep breath, and as she turned left at the next light, she was able to have another quick glance towards the parking lot. That was when she saw her uncle Erik with Oliver. Her grip on the steering wheel got tighter, wanting to know the details of their conversation.

Erik had promised her to keep the reasons for her move to Melbourne to himself, but she knew her uncle was friends with Oliver as well. Shaking the thought out of her head, she reminded herself she could trust him. He’d always been there for her and her family. The numbers in her head told her she’d been in Melbourne only for a few weeks. Packing up and leaving her life in Perth behind had been easier than expected. Except for leaving her parents. They understood, though; she had to move on. They knew the reasons and knew she was in good hands with her uncle. As she drove through the busy streets of Melbourne on her way to her new home, she was grateful for a few things she’d liked that day. Helping out in the office at the stadium was keeping her busy, and although it was only a temporary position, she enjoyed the challenge. She was good with numbers. After all, she’d studied years to become an accountant and loved it. Jason had always teased her for her ability to get numbers in order. Yes, she was good with numbers, but she’d lost her touch with people. Trust had become a foreign word to her. Instead, fear and doubt had become her constant companion.

Today’s Hook:

“Lost your keys?” he queried this time.
His deep voice was soothing and caring, and although everything inside her told her to relax, her inner restlessness was taking over. Shaking her head frantically, she replied quietly, “No. They’re somewhere in here.” While taking another step away from him, she added. “I’d appreciate if you would leave me be.”
He cocked an eyebrow, but she didn’t care whether he was offended or not, or whether he even understood. All she cared about was getting away from him and into the car as soon as possible. When he pointed towards her jacket pocket, panic rose within her again. The car was right behind her and there was no way to get further away from him.
“Cupcake, you need to relax. Are those your keys?” She followed his finger towards the pocket of her jacket, only to find the acrylic heart-shaped key ring that held a photo of Jason hanging outside.
Taking the keys, she whispered, “Thanks,” towards him and then pushed the button to unlock the car.
Oliver still stared at her, but she wasn’t going there. Some things were better left unsaid. Hell, if she could explain it in three words she might have, but many of her friends had already given up understanding. Words like ‘you need to move on’ or ‘not all men are bad’ had come up frequently in most conversations she’d had over the last year. And she knew. Every fibre in her knew, but her subconscious told her to stay away from everyone.
“You okay?”
It took her a second, and a lot of strength, to meet his gaze again. Again, she was surprised how much her body responded. Yet, it was unlike any response she’d had towards men over the last few months. Yes, her hands were trembling as usual, but there was also a little flutter in her stomach. Heat crept into her cheeks. There was a hint of concern in his green eyes, and she studied him for a brief moment. The beginning of a smile tipped the corners of his mouth, and she quickly turned to open the car door. “I’m working on it,” she finally said.

Today’s Hook:

Oliver Dempsey was no stranger to Tamara. She’d watched him on the field a couple of times since being hired as an accountant in the office. The many sinewy sportsmen were often a welcome distraction to her daily numbers, and Oliver had been the hero in many of her daydreams. He had no problems showing off his upper body after a long, hard training session, but she had to admit, he looked even better close up—his suntanned face with just a shadow of a beard, his dark hair cut short, still wet from his shower, and those green eyes! Her whole body reacted simply from looking at him.
However, her pain was still too raw, and even with all her willpower, her hands started trembling just at the thought of a man stepping too close to her. Desire suddenly turned into apprehension. She took a couple of deep breaths to calm herself as she held Oliver’s gaze.
“You okay?” he asked.
Taking another deep breath, she moved away from him and subconsciously kept looking for her keys. They just had to be in her bag, no doubt about it.
