Many of you have been asking about the next book in the Love in the City series. Well, lucky for you, it’s that special time of the month! No, I don’t mean the Aunt Flow kind; I mean, the Seven 11 Blog Hop kind, where a group of authors blog seven-line teasers/snippets from their current work-in-progress or previously published work on the 11th of each month! This month, my snippet is from Cherished By You (Love in the City, #4), brought to you by Justin Jameson and the Love in the City guys! (I love writing the guy scenes!) Enjoy:
“I almost want to ask Tessa to stop cooking,” I said, resting my hands on my knees. “I think I’ve gained weight since she moved in.”
“Did you gain a vagina, too?” Cash asked.
“You know,” Fletcher said, spinning the basketball atop his finger. “You could just work the weight off by having sex with her.”
Standing straight, I sighed and looked at the four of them. “For the millionth time, we are not having sex! We’re just friends.”
Ooh, I know what you’re thinking: Poor Tessa, no sexy times for her! YET. I promise, sex will be had and it will be phenomenal and totally worth the wait! But for now, there may or may not be a bet going on when Tessa and Justin will do it.
Since I can’t seem to stop sharing, I also want to show off the beautiful cover for Cherished By You done by Michelle at IndieBookCovers as well as the blurb! Be sure to add it to your Goodreads! This cover is my absolute favorite out of all the Love in the City covers!
“Move in with me,” he said.
Being cherished is how Tessa Wilder always imagined falling in love. But for years, she’s always gone for the wrong guys. Now that she’s fallen for one of the good ones, she fears rejection.
“I can’t,” she replied.
Justin Jameson quit looking for a woman after being used so many times for his brains. A bit of an introvert and completely oblivious to women’s advances, he can’t even see that his friend cherishes everything about him.
When Tessa needs a place to stay, Justin’s the first to offer her a room. Hearts are opened; feelings are ventured. They’ll finally know what it’s like to be cherished in the city until one moment threatens the relationship they’ve built.
“I can’t lose you.”
Thank you all for being so excited for more of the Love in the City gang! I’m ready to be working on Justin and Tessa’s book, and your continuous love and support and messages and reviews make me even more eager to write and share their story with you!
