I am officially the worst at keeping up with this blog. Mostly because life is CRAZY and I have to divide my time with work, mom-ing and writing. So this loses by default.
Well, I have exciting news!! I have a new book coming out!!!! No, it isn’t the third book in the Forgotten Fairytales series (#SORRY). It’s a contemporary NA novel, A SUMMER WITH YOU, which takes place in the same world as TO GET TO YOU. Despite being the second in the series, both books can be read in any order, though you might want to read TO GET TO YOU first to avoid any spoilers.
In TO GET TO YOU, you briefly meet Ayla’s sister, Pippa, and Kieran’s friend Chase. This is THEIR STORY. And it’s a damn good one. Not to toot my own horn, but it’s a fun read with quirky characters, so much hottness and epic love!
One of the readers said A SUMMER WITH YOU is the best book I have written. Which I’m not opposed to believing. It’s SO different than any other characters I’ve explored. Chase is not your typical book boyfriend. He’s witty, honest and bold AF. I think it’s safe to say no one in this book has a filter. In fact, I had to filter myself a bit because too many F-Bombs (#SorryNana)
So, without further ado, I am going to introduce you to PIPPA & CHASE. Enjoy this teaser!!!!!!!
“I have to know something,” Chase asked. I turned, crossing my arms over my chest as he faced me, an entire room separating us and yet it felt as if he were right beside me. The essence of him swirled in the air, unwilling to let me go. “And you have to tell the truth.”
“Because you never lie?” My brow rose.
“Never. I believe in brutal honesty if you couldn’t tell.” His eyes held mine, silently pleading me to tell the truth. To play his little game, despite the warning sirens in the back of my mind.
“Okay, what’s the question?” My stomach knotted.
“If Ayla hadn’t walked in, would you have kissed me back?” He strutted toward me, like a lion aiming for his prey.
My eyes narrowed, not letting him win so easily. “That’s assuming you were going to kiss me.”
Chase smiled like a wicked boy who got whatever he wanted. “There’s no question. If she hadn’t walked in, we’d be having sex right now or I’d go down on you. Either way, we’d be in ecstasy.” My heart pounded in my chest, never once had a guy been so forward as Chase Matthews. Crimson heated my cheeks. “Well, depending on the answer to my question.”
Why was it so hot to listen to him tell me what he wanted to do to me? My entire body woke up, desire awakening something I thought was nonexistent.
“If we kissed, I would’ve kissed you back,” I shrugged, maintaining a cool, collected exterior while my insides were screaming at me to close the gap and jump his bones. “But we aren’t.”
“Yet.” He teased and damn if I didn’t feel it all the way to the tips of my curled toes.
I swallowed hard, the knot tightening in my throat as his eyes zeroed in on mine. There was something predatorial about his gaze, almost as if I were being hunted and lured into a trap. It was terrifying yet thrilling. Though Chase could never know, so I did what I did best, play the fool.
My eyes narrowed, ready to use my sister’s reputation to protect me. At this point, it was the only card I had left to scare him off.
“Hasn’t anyone told you Infantino’s are crazy? We’re not the kind of girls guys like you get mixed up with.”
His arms crossed over his chest, a smile ticked at the corner of his cheeks. Shit, I used the wrong choice of words. I had tempted, baited, and hooked Chase without realizing it.
“I think you are exactly the kind of girl I want to get mixed up with.”
