Today’s Snippet

“Dad?”

“Yes, mate?”

“It’s going to be weird going home without Grandpa being there.”

Pain shot through Logan. “Yes, it will be.” Blinking away threatening tears as the scenery sped past, he was aware of the gravity of his words. “But remember, we talked about it. Grandpa’s in a good place. And we still have Nan. She needs us, right? Harrison’s parents are staying with her at the moment, too.”

When Nick didn’t reply, Logan checked the mirror again to find his son staring out the window, most likely contemplating his father’s reply.

Half an hour later, they stopped in front of his childhood home. Logan hadn’t even switched off the engine completely when he saw Kristen rushing from the house towards them. He heard Nick unbuckling and opening the car door just as quickly and within only a few seconds, his son was in his auntie’s embrace. Taking a deep breath, Logan gave his legs a little shake after the long drive and got out. Harrison and Graham had emerged from the house as well, and Logan walked towards them, his feet heavier with each step. His stomach clenched when he looked at his late father’s brother. Uncle Graham’s unusually pale skin emphasised the dark circles under his eyes even more. Logan’s heart broke for his uncle, knowing the pain he was going through. They embraced and patted each other gently on the back. He turned towards Harrison, his eyes filled with sadness, and Logan’s throat tightened at the emotions rushing through him. Appreciation filled him knowing that he wasn’t alone in this.

Sometimes one has to break rules in order to find happiness…

Widower Logan Hendrix is puzzled by the recent series of small crimes against his son’s new teacher. It’s a mystery to him, and he offers her his help. There’s an instant attraction, and Logan wants to take their parent/teacher relationship to a more personal level.

It doesn’t take Addison Ryker long to fall in love with Alinta Bay, the small town she’s moved to for her new teaching position at the local primary school. Her newfound haven is threatened, however, when her house is broken into and she is relying on the unbelievably stubborn but very sexy Logan for help. Although captivated by him, Addison worries her career could be compromised, because there are rules about dating a parent.

Hi everyone –
I’m continuing with another teaser from Book 3 in the Australian Sports Romance Series – Entangled Moments.
Enjoy ♥♥

This week’s Hook …

 

“C’mon, princess. I’ll make you a hot chocolate as well.”

She stood and noticed Oliver on his way over. “Please don’t tell him,” she begged Markus.

“What’s up?” Oliver asked.

“Saz drowned her sorrow in some red last night after finding out Timmy cheated on her,” Markus explained.

She slapped him against his chest. “I asked you not to say anything.”

Markus cocked an eyebrow. “I thought you meant the chocolate.”

Oliver laughed, tugging Sarah into a hug. “I told you—”

“Don’t say it,” she mumbled against his chest.

“You should try—”

She placed a finger on his lips. “Just tell the happy couple congratulations, and I’ll catch up with them when they return from their honeymoon.”

“You really are out of it, sweet pea. They left about half an hour ago.”

Another sigh escaped her lips. “Even better. I don’t have to feel guilty for leaving the party early.”

Oliver placed a kiss on Sarah’s forehead.

Blurb:

Markus and Sarah’s lives couldn’t be more different…

After three years away as a goalkeeper for an English soccer club, Markus DeLeon is happy to be back in Melbourne, back with his family and friends, including Sarah. He has known her since childhood, and has often provided her with a safe place from the teasing of other children and the troubles of a broken home. Yet, events after attending their friends’ wedding set off a shift in their relationship and questions, which neither Markus nor Sarah know how to approach.

Sarah Winter caught her boyfriend cheating on her, and not for the first time Markus offers her a much-needed shoulder to cry on. This time, however, an attraction between them intensifies, ending in a passionate afternoon, and Markus doesn’t know how to handle this new side of their friendship and flees to the coast. Sarah, unsure as well about the recent events, is surprised by his sudden departure, but is soon sidetracked by misunderstandings and a family emergency.

But sometimes risking what you have means you might lose everything…

Today’s Snippet

The boy shook his head. That worried Logan, because his son hadn’t eaten anything decent for the whole day. Out of the corner of his eye, he watched Nick in the mirror looking up towards the ceiling, possibly throwing around all the questions he had regarding his grandpa’s heart attack the previous year and his recent death. It’d been something they’d discussed a lot while driving along the roads in Tasmania and it’d been a challenge for Logan to explain how the heart worked and why Grandpa had suffered a heart attack in the first place, explaining what death was and what happened afterwards. Where would people go? There were moments when Logan had wished for a second parent to share the task of clarifying the unknown, but he got through it. It helped Nick to know that Grandpa was now with his mother and Logan’s grandparents. Somewhere, wherever the place was where dead people went after leaving.

This week’s Hook …

She stared at him. “Do you have any idea what Katie would’ve done to me if I hadn’t performed?”

He laughed, because he probably did. Katie was kind and petite, but knew what she wanted. “How about I take you home? I’m sure this wedding party is near its end and will possibly survive without you.”

“Promise me a hot chocolate?”

His body shook slightly as he held back his laughter. His soft snicker told her he was thinking of their holidays in the Swiss Alps as well.

A few years earlier, Markus had played for an English soccer club and invited her for a holiday in Switzerland. They’d spent a week in a wooden farm house just outside a small village, between massive snow-capped mountains. Wherever she’d looked were ski slopes or fields with cattle. It’d been divine. And after a long day outside, they’d sat by the fire and drunk hot chocolate.

Today’s Snippet

Harrison was silent.

“Give me twenty minutes and I’ll meet you at Mum’s.”

“Sounds good. I’ll bring Kristen as well.”

As soon as he turned off the phone, a little moan from the back told him that Nick was stirring and waking.

Logan looked at the rear-view mirror. “We’re almost home, mate.”

Rubbing the sleep out of his eyes, Nick sat up and scanned the area out of the window, probably to figure out where they were.

“We’re heading straight to—” Logan broke off; he’d been going to say Grandpa.

“Nan. Auntie Kristen and Harrison will be there. Are you hungry?”

#MFRWHooks “I deserve it, though.” #Australia #books #mustread #Sportsromance

Hi everyone –

Enjoy ♥♥

This week’s Hook …

The words stung like acid in her stomach. Yes, Markus had told her more than a couple of times that he thought there’d been something iffy about Timmy. Even Ty and Oliver had voiced their concerns, but she’d been happy the last four months. She hadn’t expected that one. Not at all. So last night she’d drowned her sorrows in that one glass of red wine too many and was now paying for it.

Markus gently pulled her a little bit closer again. “I’m not going to say any such thing.”

“I deserve it, though.”

His mouth curved into a smile. “Baby, no you don’t. The only person deserving something is Timmy. And that’s a big fist connecting with his face.”

She laughed, but regretted it straight away. “Oh, my God, Marky. Don’t make me laugh, please. I have the worst hangover ever. The last glass of the red wine last night didn’t agree with me.”

“You’ve done well fooling everyone today if that’s the case.”
