Hey everyone! Sorry for the late posting! All morning I thought it was Monday, lol.
Anyways, today's recommendation is for those of us looking to spice up the romance in our books. If you're looking for a book that does it really well, go out and get Elizabeth Seckman's PAST DUE.
Blurb from Goodreads:
Jenna Austin is a young, widowed artist raising a teenage son on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. As the costs of living in paradise rise, she struggles to make ends meet. Life isn't easy, but she manages.
When her car breaks down, she trudges on. She assumes life can't get any more complicated than it is. But it can...
Chance brings her nose to well-formed chest with Tres Coulter, the handsome, affluent aid to Governor Hunt. Jenna and Tres share a history; they also share a love they thought long lost. Their lives are about to be altered forever as the deceptions of the past transform the very foundation of the present.
The price of happily ever after may be too steep to pay once the past comes due.
I read this book in two sittings. I couldn't put it down! And holy crap, the beautiful thing about this read was the romance. It was pure and hot and the chemistry leaped off the page. The two main characters were frustrating in a good way... the kind when you wish you could shake one or both of them and just say, GO FOR IT! YOU'RE IN LOVE! Lol.
The relationships in this book was what built the story. Mother and son, father and son, mother and father, grandparents and in-laws, and just FAMILY. It was such a great story, and I'm going to be reading it over and over.
It's available on AMAZON, and you can also visit the author (who is one of the best people ever!) at her blog.
