Welcome to Friday Freebits! Six paragraphs of a current book or a work in progress. I’ll try to choose six good ones for you!
Blame it on the Stars
The Blame Game, Book One by Jamie Hill
First, the blurb:
Teacher Catlin McCall has second thoughts about dating the father of a student, but listening to his sweet talk one night under the stars, she finds him hard to resist. They stumble into an impetuous, passionate relationship which leaves them breathless and his family less than thrilled. A not-quite-ex-wife who decides she wants her man back, combined with a pair of manipulative teenagers, make for more problems than either of them are prepared to deal with.
Steve Naughton has no idea when he invites Catlin’s brother to join them for dinner that his fiancée has family issues of her own. Like the old adage, no good deed goes unpunished, and Steve’s surprise backfires when the truth comes to light.
“You feel like your life got thrown up in the air, and it’s landing as a different sort of life? Yeah, me too.” Blame it on the stars.
“This book is an awesome read. Jamie has you hooked from the start! Every time I thought I knew what was gonna happen she brought in something new. I can’t wait for the next book. This book needs read by everyone!” ~ 5 Stars, Lisa, Amazon Verified Purchase
“I have always thoroughly enjoyed Jamie Hill’s writings and this was no exception. This story feels believable about a new romance, but life has a way of throwing the couple a curve ball I did not see coming! It is a fast read, and I love the Midwest setting. I recommend this book.” ~ 5 Stars, Maggie, Amazon Verified Purchase
“She had me from the beginning and I didn’t want to stop reading until I finished it! Just when I was thinking “happily ever after” for the main characters, she brought in old relationships for them to deal with. Can’t wait to read the next book!” 5 Stars, CMT, Amazon Verified Purchase
And now, the six paragraphs:
His eyes flashed just before he pulled her into his arms and kissed her.
Catlin pounded his chest with her fists a couple times, without much force behind the movement. She quickly gave in and dropped the pretense of putting up a fight. Her arms encircled his neck and she kissed him hungrily.
After a solid minute, he reluctantly pulled away. “I want you to tell me who the father of your baby is,” he whispered.
“Why don’t I believe you?”
“Because you think I’m a liar.” She kissed him passionately one last time. “God, I’ve missed that.” She looked into his eyes, then dragged herself away. In the distance they could hear the school bell ringing.
That’s six, sorry! Blame our Friday Freebits Hostess Ginger Simpson for the abruptness, she’s the one who chose to make it six paragraphs…LOL
