This week’s hook …

TOUCH ME

by Iris Blobel

Both, Lexie and her daughter, stared at him. “How?” Lexie asked with suspicion in her voice.

He nodded, knowing he should’ve explained himself more. “The kangaroo is dead, but she has a little joey still alive inside her pouch.” Their faces relaxed and something like sympathy took over. “It’d be a great help, if Zoe could sit at the front with a few blankets and hold on to the little fella until we get to your car.”

The girl’s eyes beamed and her head bobbed up and down in excitement while she unbuckled her seat belt at the same time. He hoped this favour would break the awkward silence between them all while driving to their car.

“Will that be okay?” he asked Lexie.

“Absolutely,” she replied with a smile.

He wasn’t able to move aside fast enough for Zoe to swap to the front. With a chuckle, he stepped to the back of the car, opened the boot, and retrieved a few blankets which he handed to Zoe. Then he returned to the joey and carefully took him out of the pouch before placing him into the blankets on the girl’s lap.

“Keep him nice and warm,” he explained. “Joeys need lots of warmth.” She bobbed her head eagerly again as she carefully wrapped the little animal into the blankets. “He’s so tiny. Will he be okay?”

BLURB

She loves the feel of his skin beneath her hands …

Lexie Marshall packs up and moves 3,000 km east with her daughter Zoe, to forget and move on. Now, all that matters is her daughter and her new job. She tries hard to stay focussed, but the sexy and extremely kind park ranger, Jesse, is not making it easy. And when her husband shows up in the small coastal town creating chaos, all she can do is hang on and trust her new friends.

After his last girlfriend walked out on him, Jesse Parker is doing just fine on his own. Until his accidental meeting with single mother Lexie, when he rescues her and her daughter from getting lost in the forest. But when her past catches up with her, he is right in the middle of it all and it might ruin his career.

Will returning to her old life be the only chance to save his career?

#MFRWHooks “Is it dead?” #amreading #readingcommunity #Amazon

I’m back with more bookhooks. We’ve finally moved to our new house and are busy exploring the new neighbourhood – it’s just divine and hopefully an inspiration for many, many more books.
Today’s ‘hook’ is from book 4 in the Alinta Bay series, which is set along the Great Ocean Road in Australia.
Enjoy ♥♥

This week’s hook …

TOUCH ME

by Iris Blobel

Shaking his head, he knew straight away it was a hit and run incident, with the driver leaving without moving the animal. He slowed and parked in front of it.

“I’ll be a couple of minutes,” he explained, looking at Lexie via the mirror.

With a slow nod, she asked, “Is it dead?”

He swivelled in his seat to face her. “Put it this way. I hope it is, otherwise I might have to put it down.”

The expression on her face told him that she wasn’t fond of the idea either. Neither was he. In one quick movement, he turned, opened the door, and got out. It took him only a few steps to get to the kangaroo. The animal was dead all right, but when he stood right next to it, he looked right into his next problem.

A little joey was moving inside the pouch, still alive.

Jesse blew out a long breath as he rubbed his hands over his face. It wasn’t the first time that he’d found a dead kangaroo with the joey still alive, but that didn’t make it any easier. He knelt and inspected both mama and child. The little joey was looking good considering the situation. With a sense of frustration and sadness, he stood and returned to the car where he opened the door on Zoe’s side.

“I was hoping Zoe would be able to help me.”

TOUCH ME

by Iris Blobel

And then there was the mother, who despite her shortness of breath and the obvious lack of fitness looked still incredible and that did something to him, which he wasn’t sure how to handle or even interpret.

The mother. He didn’t even know her name.

Holding out his hand, he said, “Jesse Parker. Nice meeting you.”

She looked up at him, and a slow smile spread across her face, but she ignored his hand. “Nice meeting you, too. More than nice, if I may say so. I’m Lexie and this is my daughter Zoe.”

Sliding his hand into his pants pocket, he turned to look at Zoe and said with a wink, “I’m not lecturing you, but please promise me not making a habit out of stopping strange cars.”

The girl nodded enthusiastically. “I promise.”

“Okay. Let’s get this roadkill off the road and then get you back to your car.” Jesse helped Lexie and her daughter into the car and then slid behind the steering wheel. While he started the engine, he considered starting a conversation, but decided against it. Nothing personal, but it’d been a busy day already, and he was too tired to come up with anything to say. They drove quietly along the forest road. It didn’t take him long until he located the dead kangaroo farther up the path. Shaking his head, he knew straight away it was a hit and run incident, with the driver leaving without moving the animal. He slowed and parked in front of it.

The Ranger held up his hand. “Lady from the bakery?”

Lexie gave a slow nod.

“I have a good idea where your car is.” He looked at Zoe and then to Lexie again. “I’ve had a call, though, regarding a road kill which I have to check out first.”

The notion to hop into a stranger’s car was a bit worrisome and not the ideal solution, ranger or not, but it looked like the only way to get back to town.

Use GPS next time. Lesson learnt.

* * * *

Jesse Parker scratched the back of his neck. The situation in front of him had so many things wrong with it. The fact that the young girl had stopped him in his car in the middle of nowhere didn’t sit well with him, but on the flipside, he was glad she had, because organising a search party wouldn’t have been on his favourite things to do for a Friday afternoon either. God only knew whether anybody would’ve noticed that they’d been gone for a while, considering they were new in town. He made a mental note to ask Melody about the two. She’d given them the directions to the Cook Waterfall carpark; he was sure she’d know a little more about them.

“The Ranger asked you a question.”

She looked back into stunning brown eyes. Brown eyes with flecks of amber in them. “My apologies. I am many things, but fit is not one of them.”

He carried a stern look now, which she wasn’t able to interpret. “Are you okay?” he asked again.

“Yes, I am.” With a smile she added. “Thanks.”

“Want to provide me a brief background story of your day and how I can help you?”

“I think the short version is that we would like to have a lift to our car.”

He nodded. “No problems. Whereabouts is your car?”

Tilting her head slightly to the side, she replied, “At the car park?”

The Ranger pinched the bridge of his nose but didn’t reply.

She suppressed a sigh. “Okay, let me try this again. I am not as useless as I’m currently coming across. Zoe…” She pointed to her daughter. “My daughter and I have only recently moved to Alinta Bay. It’s a beautiful day, so we thought it’d be perfect for exploring the area.”

“You decided,” Zoe piped, to which Lexie replied with a stern look.

“The lovely lady from the bakery told us about this path along the creek and towards a little waterfall. We found the waterfall, but unfortunately not the way back. The car park was not really a car park—”

She straightened. “I’m okay. Embarrassed, my ego dinted, and having aged by about ten years, but I’m okay.”

His deep chuckle invaded her senses with its warmth and did something to her. And it’d been a while since a man had stirred something inside her, not since … she pushed the thought of her husband away, as well as the flutter in her stomach, trying to deal with the problem at hand.

“I got us lost,” she finally conceded.

Raising his brows, he opened his mouth, but closed it again, looking over at Zoe. “Okay, so one thing after the other. I hope you know that waving down a car can be dangerous.”

“Please don’t lecture her,” Lexie said, still gasping for air. “I will do that in due time later on, but at the moment, she deserves a medal, because…” She huffed. “Because we were lost.”

Lexie met his gaze dead on, acutely aware of the momentary silence between them. Again, she had to push the flutter in her stomach away by closing her eyes for a brief second or two.

“Mum.”

Eyes wide now, she turned to Zoe. “What?”

“The Ranger asked you a question.”

“Mum?”

Lexie whirled around again. “What?” But as soon as she saw her daughter’s timid look in her eyes, she apologised straight away. “I’m sorry, sweetie. But—”

Zoe shook her head. “Mum, listen,” she said just above a whisper.

Lexie focussed and followed the girl’s gaze.

“Look! A car.”

“Hallelujah,” Lexie murmured.

“Can you run?”

Hands on hips, Lexie said, “I’m old, but I’m no geriatric.”

“Well, duh, Mum. Run.”

“Wait,” she almost shouted. “We can’t just—”

“Mum, just run. You’re not wearing your glasses, are you? It’s the Park Ranger vehicle.”

Shaking her head at her own embarrassment, but also at her clever daughter, she rushed after Zoe through the forest, literally over sticks and stones. Worried about her daughter stopping a stranger’s car, Park Ranger or not, she screamed, “Wait, Zoe. Wait for me!”

Without looking back, her daughter replied, “No way I’m letting this guy drive off.”

When Lexie stopped a couple of minutes later in front of the Ranger’s truck, she placed her hands on her knees, trying to catch her breath.

“Mum got us lost.”

The Ranger came around the car and placed his hand on Lexie’s arm, “Ma’am, are you okay?”

She straightened. “I’m okay. Embarrassed, my ego dinted, and having aged by about ten years, but I’m okay.”

Zoe shrugged again. “I miss my friends.”

“Well, so do I, but I am trying to do the best in a bad situation. How about we try to get out of this jungle of trees and next weekend we’ll check the real estate agent for a bigger house?”

“We had a big house in Perth—”

Lexie looked into the distance and then back at her daughter. “Look, I get it that you’re not happy with the current situation. But I’m trying my best here.” She inhaled a long breath to calm herself. “I don’t really think this is the right place to have this discussion, but maybe the right time for you to ponder about the alternatives. Perth, big house, your mother working massive hours to afford it, which would mean you’re in after care, or Alinta Bay, small house, hopefully we’ll find something bigger soon, and I can drop you off and pick you up from school, plus we will have enough money for two holidays a year.”

Without waiting for an answer, Lexie turned again, but didn’t move. Cursing under her breath, she conceded that they were lost. And it scared her. A lot. “Mum?”

TOUCH ME

by Iris Blobel

Lexie Marshall looked around, seeing nothing but trees. Worry crept into her mind. It’d been a while since they’d seen another soul. The old farmer on the tractor had warned them, but she’d been certain she had known the way back to the car.

“Mum, are you sure you know where you’re going?” Zoe asked.

Loosely circling her shoulders to rid herself of the kink in them, Lexie replied, “Sweetie, I’m sure we’re almost there. It can’t be far.”

“Such a stupid idea to go for a bushwalk.”

Lexie stopped and turned, looking at her daughter, undecided whether to be annoyed or feel guilty. “I thought it was a great idea. We’re stuck in that small house seven days a week with the walls closing in on us.”

Zoe met her gaze, tears shimmering in her eyes. “Not my fault we moved here.”

Massaging the temples, she took a deep breath. “I hope we’re not going through the separation discussion again. Your dad and I drifted apart. Nothing I can do about it.”

The girl lifted her shoulder in a shrug. “That didn’t mean you have to drift all the way to this godforsaken place.”

“This godforsaken place is giving me a chance to work in my profession as a lawyer during school hours only so you’re not on your own at home.”

#MFRWHooks “You need to relax” #Romancebooks #Bookrecommendations #Whattoread

This week’s hook …

defining moments

by Iris Blobel

He raised a brow, but she didn’t worry whether he was offended or not, or whether he even understood. All she wanted was to get away from him and into her car as soon as possible. When he pointed towards her jacket pocket, panic rose within her again. Her car was right behind her, preventing her to increase the distance between them.

“You need to relax.” He pointed towards the pocket of her jacket. “Are those your keys?”

She followed to where his finger was pointing, only to find the acrylic heart-shaped key ring that held a photo of Jason hanging outside. Taking the keys, she muttered, “Thanks,” and quickly unlocked the car.

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?
