Release Blitz for The Jane Thing by Tracy Broemmer

 

  In THE JANE THING by Tracy Broemmer, Gideon Reece finds himself living with his sister’s best friend who is all sunshine and chatter. However, the more time we spend together, the more I’m realizing that Skye Stafford is different from any woman I’ve ever known, but I can’t risk ruining her friendship with my sister. Fans of Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey will devour this must-read enemies to lovers, best friend’s sibling romance from the Meet Cute Book Club Series.

  When my best friend asks me to put her brother up at my place for a while, I’m totally on board. After all, I practically grew up in Chloe and Gideon’s house, so I used to kind of know him. Those childhood memories don’t compare to the real Gideon Reece when he shows up ready to be my temporary roommate. He’s grown into a smoking hot guy complete with tattoos, rakish-looking hair, and a face that looks like art. Too bad he’s a pompous jerk. My sister’s best friend is going to drive me crazy before my stay here is over. She’s prettier than I remember, but she’s all sunshine and chatter, like she thinks we’re going to be besties while I’m here. Spoiler alert: we’re not. I’m here to secure a job and find a place to live, and in the meantime, I have no interest in palling around with Skye Stafford. Then why did I kiss her? Probably the same reason I can’t get her off my mind. She’s completely different from any woman I’ve ever known, and to my regret, I can’t get enough of her. I have to keep my hands to myself, because I’d never forgive myself if I came between Chloe and Skye.

Excerpt

Copyright 2022 @Tracy Broemmer

“What are you doing?” Frame in one hand and my hammer in the other, I stop just inside my bedroom and look at Gideon. “What’s it look like?” My sarcasm flies out the window when he tips his head like he’s actually thinking about it. I feel the heat from his intense stare as it travels up over my black heels and bare legs and skinny gray pencil skirt. What had he called it last night? Corporate getup? “Kinda like an eighties music video,” he answers with a shrug. “Maybe porn.” Stunned by his answer, I take half a second to wonder if I’m offended. The laugh pops out before I make up my mind. I hold out the hammer and twist it this way and that and finally shudder when I look back at him. “I’m going to hang his picture.” I turn my back on him and put the frame and hammer down on my bed. “Want help?” I peek at him over my shoulder and shake my head. “No thanks.” “Well, I mean, you can’t just hammer a nail in a wall and be done with it. You have to measure, so you’re not crooked.” “I’m not crooked,” I promise him. I kick off my heels and lead him to the spot on the wall I’ve already measured and marked. “I did that first.” Rather than look at the spot on the wall, Gideon studies me. Up close to him like this, I smell his cologne. Something woodsy but not overpowering. He also smells like old books or at least an old building—like the mix of paper and dust. “Did you work late?” he asks me, and when I shake my head, he asks, “why are you still dressed like that?” Wow. He really does have an issue with professional attire. “Had a date,” I answer. I left my nail out on the counter, so I go to get it. When I come back in, Gideon’s looking around my room. My cheeks heat with embarrassment when I see a lacey black bra tossed over the nightstand. He looks at me again with narrowed eyes, as if he’s trying to work out if I brought my date home and slept with him and forgot to put my bra on when I got dressed again. “A date.” “Mm-hmm.” I stick the nail between my teeth and eye the spot I marked earlier with a pencil. “With who?” “Mel Kavanaugh.” “Don’t know him.” “No kidding.” I speak around the nail in my teeth and roll my eyes. “He works at the bank.” “That your type?” I wouldn’t swear to it, but he sounds disappointed. “Will you gimme the hammer?” Nail still between my teeth, I hold my hand out and nod my thanks when he puts the hammer on my palm. Taking the nail out of my teeth, I lean closer to the wall and tap it gently with the hammer. “Did you use a stud finder?” “For the date? No.” I shake my head. “Maybe that was the problem.” I have to look at him when I hear his soft laugh. “I meant for the nail.” He points at the wall. “I’m surprised you can use nails in a new apartment.” “Landlord thinks that sticky stuff is the devil’s invention. Told me to hammer as much as I want.” Gideon’s eyebrows shoot up to his hairline as his face crinkles with laughter. “Tell me you meant to say that.” “Totally did,” I promise him.

Release BLitz for Somewhere Between Hello and Goodbye

 





BLURB

Hansel

I never knew I needed her until she came into my life—my beautiful stranger. Bowie was everything I wasn’t. Free. Impulsive. Carefree. With a common destination, we embarked on a road trip. Little did I know, my life was about to change forever.

Bowie

I never thought he’d become more than a stranger—my dopamine hugger. Hansel was everything I wanted. Caring. Understanding. Giving. I told him we could remain strangers during the road trip but part with good memories. But the best and worst things lie in the unexpected.

We were never supposed to meet again, but when we did, I wished we had never said hello in the first place.

Download your copy today, exclusively on Amazon or read FREE in Kindle Unlimited!



Review:
I liked this one a lot.  Both Bowie and Hansel are great characters.  Bowie is a fun, crazy, free-spirited girl.  Hansel is a great and caring guy.  He decides to skip his flight and drive home instead.  Bowie missing her flight is a way that had me going OMG but still laughing.  These two end up going on a road trip together.  They are strangers when they begin, but their adventures bring them closer.  There was a crazy twist that I didn't expect.  This one had me hooked, and I highly recommend it.  
5 Stars!

Release Blitz for X My Heart by L.A. Wayward




Title: X My Heart
Author: L.A. Wayward
Genre: Sports/Inspirational Romance
Release Date: June 24, 2022


BLURB

X My Heart

Love isn’t clean. It’s messy, and sometimes it’s as dirty as BMX.

Hunter, BMX’s number-one bad boy, has everything he needs: money, fame, gold medals, and girls between his sheets to fill the constant ache in his chest. He doesn’t need anyone to mend the hole in his heart, and certainly not someone like Sky Alexander.

When Sky, his trainer’s long-lost daughter, comes into his life, she screws up his plans to never let a girl distract him on his way to the number one spot.

Sky doesn’t need a tattooed BMX wild boy to mess up her plans. There is only one race she still needs to ride, and it doesn’t involve falling for the BMX champion with enough problems and vices to fill a whole arena.

X My Heart is a story about love, loss and taking on every hill life has to offer. True love doesn’t have to make sense for it to be real or for it to change the path you are on.

It doesn’t matter how many wrong turns you make, or how many times you crash. The only thing you have to do is chase the ride till the end.

Blurb:

The last time I saw the only woman I’ve ever loved, we stood in a church as I tried to stop her from walking down the aisle toward the wrong man. I failed.

 

In the four years that have passed, she had his kid while I went on to achieve the sort of success with my band that we never could have dreamed.

 

I’ve sampled enough of the female population to realize no one will ever measure up to the woman who holds my heart, but she’s a mom now, and I’m unsuitable for kids.

 

They’ve built their life far enough away from me, but they’re coming to California. They want to see me.

 

My first response? No comment.

 

The fire that always burned between us still rages when they show up, but I should really stay away. After all, she didn’t just marry some random guy. She married my brother.

Review:
OMG, this one is a must-read.  I was going to read a little bit, and I ended up getting so drawn into it that I ignored everyday life and read it all in one sitting.  Tommy and Rachel are pretty much soul mates, but he left her to build his band.  She went on to marry his brother Eddie.  After four years, they see each other again.  She's the girl Tommy could never get over, and she still has feelings for him.  There's a lot of back and forth, and neither wants to do anything while she is still married.  This one was a heart-string puller, and if I were a kindle thrower, I would have thrown my kindle at least once  (I think somewhere in the 70% range) when reading this.  
5 Stars!

SPICE IT UP!
Luc

There were times when I knew exactly what to say. When I was ready to face the oncoming questions of being a father of four and to settle any problem that came my way. My kids were the center of my world, just like my wife.
Yet something was bothering my oldest daughter, and I could not figure out what it was.
And neither could Meghan, with the way that she kept looking at me as if I had all the answers. The problem was, I used to. I used to have those answers. At least it felt like it. But then again, so had Meghan. And now here we were, staring at each other as our teenage daughter grumbled something to herself, looking completely lost and angry at the world, and I didn’t know how to fix it.
“Sasha? Is there something that you want to tell us?” Meghan asked as she reached out and gripped my hand. I looked down at her slender wrist and wanted to pull it to my lips for a kiss. Only it wasn’t the right time, and I was afraid if we didn’t take a break from the necessities that were our life, we might not ever find that time again.
“Nothing’s wrong.” The clipped sound of my daughter’s voice split the air, and I let out a breath.
“Sasha. There’s got to be something wrong if you’re not talking to us.”
“Why do I have to tell you everything? I’m eighteen. I’m not a little girl anymore. I’m having a bad day. Maybe it’s just my period.”
“You talking about menstruation isn’t going to push me away from this conversation. It’s a new age. I’m not going to wince.”
“Ugh! Why can’t you be like any normal guy and just walk away as soon as I talk about anything girl problem related?”
“Because I have two daughters, a wife, and fifty thousand Montgomery cousins. Not to mention your aunts. You’re not going to push me away by saying those things. Talk to me.”
My daughter, who didn’t look a thing like me since we didn’t share a single biological gene, blinked up at me before she burst into tears. I cursed under my breath as my wife and I moved forward. We hugged Sasha close, helpless.
“Baby, talk to us. What’s wrong?”
“I’m fine,” Sasha bit out as she leaned into us.
“You just burst out crying, and you’re angry for seemingly no reason. There’s got to be a reason.”
“Fine. Marcus dumped me.”
I blinked and looked back at her. “I thought you and Marcus were just friends?”
She rolled her eyes, let out a huff. “Dad.”
“Don’t Dad me. When did you become more than friends? How could he have broken up with you when you weren’t dating?”
“Luc, darling, one thing at a time.”
“I think this is the same thing.”
“Oh, so you’re fine with talking about menstruation, but suddenly I talk about boyfriends, and you freak out like a dad from the ‘50s?”
I pinched the bridge of my nose and waved Cliff off.
Cliff was sixteen and nearly as tall as I was, and his eyes were wide. He put his hands on both Emma’s and Benjamin’s shoulders.
As Benjamin was eight, and Emma was ten, they had an inkling of what we were talking about, so therefore my eldest son seemed to read my mind. He pulled the kids away, and out to the backyard where hopefully he would watch them for a minute while I figured out what the hell was going on with my oldest daughter.
Meghan and I had been married for over a decade now. We had been through hell and back multiple times, and I still felt like I was sometimes scrambling when it came to my kids.

Review:

I am always looking for new recipes, and when I saw this one, I jumped at the chance to find some new recipes. The book has more than just recipes; there are stories from the Montgomery Ink series. Each chapter has a short story from a couple from the series. I'm not familiar with the Montgomery Ink series, but I still enjoyed the short stories. I loved the recipes, and there's a little something for everyone, even the pickiest eaters. My favorite chapter was Chapter 5: With A Twist. I made almost all of these recipes, and I didn't get one complaint from the family. Another family favorite was French Toast Grilled Cheese with Bacon from Chapter 6: Cheese Me, Baby. I'm enjoying making the recipes, and there are still more recipes I will try. 

5 Stars!!
