This week’s hook …

defining moments

by Iris Blobel

From where he stood, he only saw a small part of her face, the pale skin, albeit flawless. Her blond hair was tied back in a ponytail, with a few stray strands tucked behind her ears. No earrings. He moved forward a bit. No rings on any of the fingers either. When she turned a bit, he was able to admire her deep blue eyes again. Indeed, beautiful, and yet underlined with troubling dark circles. He imagined for a moment what those eyes were hiding.

“So, what brings you to Melbourne?” he asked, noticing another little flinch.

Tamara met his gaze and for a beat, he was completely lost in her eyes. A smile tugged at his lips, but she returned to stare at the door.

“Business,” she whispered at last.

BLURB

Women want him and he wants them…

Pitcher Oliver Dempsey loves playing baseball for a living, yet, when it comes to his private life, ‘love’ is not in his vocabulary. He likes to keep women at an arm’s length … until he meets Tamara. Unprepared for the attraction he feels towards her, he’s drawn in, even more when told by his coach that she’s off limits. And only Oliver can decide whether she’s worth fighting for.

Tamara Amis moved to Melbourne seeking distance from her past. With the help of her uncle, the coach of a baseball club, she quickly finds a job and a place to live. Yet, one meeting with the handsome pitcher Oliver stirs unexpected emotions that threaten to overwhelm her, despite her best efforts to resist falling for him.

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 Snippet

Rubbing her temples, Sarah closed her eyes to give them a moment of rest from the light. Even the painkiller was powerless against the pounding war behind her eyes. Thankfully, she’d managed to plaster her best smile onto her face for the photos. The alternative would’ve been Katie’s anger for turning up to her wedding with a hangover. Why had she let Timmy’s cheating affect her so much? The bottle of red had been so inviting in her hurt but clearly hadn’t been the right choice of drink the day before a wedding.

When she heard the start of the next song, an old ballad from the nineties, she opened her eyes and perused the venue. Oddly enough, her gaze fell on Markus. Something inside her shifted. For some inexplicable reason, seeing him all dressed up in a tux stirred her restlessly. What was it with the sudden unfamiliar tingle lingering just above her skin? She’d seen him often enough in his surf shorts, sans T-shirt, but that tuxedo did something to her—or to him—that had her heart racing. Tilting her head a little, she studied him.

This week’s hook …

defining moments

by Iris Blobel

The sudden ache in his shoulder when he moved the bag, however, reminded him to make that call for a massage appointment. When he hung up, he lifted his eyes and not only found himself in front of the lift but also next to Tamara.

A dozen questions whirled through his head again. How she’d ignored his hand, yet more so, how intrigued he’d been by her stance or even her demeanour towards him. He was about to say something when the lift gave a soft ping and the doors opened. With a small smile, he stepped aside and waited for Tamara to enter first.

“Ground floor?”

Her reply was nothing more than a soft whisper. “Yes, please.”

A thousand things went through his head, yet nothing that could start a conversation. He tilted his head slightly towards her and as he watched her staring at the closing doors, he saw a little flinch.

Or had he imagined it?

#NewRelease “Model Behavior” by Tricia Lynne – @tlynne67 @InkSlingerPR

Today we have a teaser reveal from Tricia Lynne’s upcoming MODEL BEHAVIOR! 

Title: Model Behavior
Author: Tricia Lynne
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 15th

About Model Behavior:

Hayes Walker is screwed.

His body is giving out, his family is bleeding him dry, and he never prepared for life after football. When the Dallas Bulldogs offer him a coaching position instead of a returning roster spot, only two things keep him going—staying fit in case another football team picks him up, and spending time with a gray-faced Boxer at the Unlovabulls Dog Rescue.

Olive Russo is a woman who can walk through a kennel in a white pantsuit without getting a spot on her. The always organized PR pro will need her cool control when she’s forced to plan a fundraising gala for the Unlovabulls with the college boyfriend who turned her inside out. A decade ago, Hayes Walker broke her heart and sent Olive into a spiral of bad decisions that she’d rather her clients not know about. Now she is determined to keep the completely lickable Hayes off her to-do list—even if their chemistry is stronger than ever.

Dumping Olive was the worst decision Hayes ever made. When the amazing girl walks back into his life a full-fledged woman, he makes a play for her heart. But when Olive’s secrets are exposed and the NFL knocks on Hayes’s door, they’ll both need to leave their past where it belongs if they’re going to make it work the second time around.

Today’s Snippet

Taking a deep breath, she forced herself to relax and followed her instincts. It couldn’t be that hard, after all. When she made it to the front at last, she moved to the side and finally dared to steal a glance at the guys. She stared at Markus, who looked incredibly handsome in a tux. Very sexy indeed.

Oh, my good Lord.

The two shared a quick smile before the minister started, and she tried her best to focus on the service. Tried her best to ignore the thumping in her head. Later that day, she found herself in the middle of the big wedding function. She leaned back into her chair as she scanned the venue, taking everything in. The official part of the reception was finally over, and a sense of tiredness overcame her as she relaxed some more. Of course, she had enjoyed the wedding ceremony, not to mention her immense pride to have been part of it, but she was glad that the formal part of the day was over. The photo session after church had dragged on because of the boys playing around so much, and although her headache had been relentless despite the medication she’d been taking, it’d been good letting go of some of the built-up tension

This week’s hook …

defining moments

by Iris Blobel

Another chuckle. “It’s always at my place.”

He disconnected the call, regretting that he’d missed out on a good game with his mates.

Tyson had been a friend since kindergarten, and together with their friend Markus, they’d played football most weekends until Oliver had moved to the US for a few years because of his father’s job. Watching a local game, Oliver had learnt all about baseball and fallen in love with the sport. Unlike Ty, who played football with an AFL club in Melbourne and who earned close to half a million each year, Oliver’s income was a lot less glamorous. Markus had moved away from football as well and ended up as a goalie for one of the premier league soccer clubs in England. He’d made some big money during a three-year contract with an English club, but in the end, he had been too homesick and returned to Melbourne. Not that he’d ever admit to that. Even now in their late twenties, their friendship was as strong as it had been twenty-five years earlier. Sarah was the only girl in the friendship group. Although, she’d always been closer to Markus, Oliver and Ty cared for her as if she were their sister.

Oliver pondered whether he should head over to Ty’s anyway as he paced through the labyrinth of the clubhouse. Katie, Ty’s girlfriend, always had leftover dinner, and a bit of company never hurt.
