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:
She glared at him. “I hate you. I can’t believe this shit.”
“I know, I know. It sucks to be you. Same song, different year.” He snatched the car keys and shoved her lightly into the passenger side of the Jaguar.
Hurrying around to the driver’s side, he slid in and started up the car.
She was still crying angrily. “Just take me home! Then I want you to get out! I don’t care if I ever see you again.”
Nick slammed the car into gear and squealed out of the drive.
“Slow down.” She reached for her seatbelt. The car tires squealed again as he peeled off the gravel drive and on to Spillway Road. “Nick, you’re going too fast.” There was a tricky turn coming up that she was used to, but he wasn’t. “Nick!” she screamed as the car went out of control and headed over the embankment.
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
