Are you ready for spring?! What better way to celebrate than with games, giveaways, books, and swag?
Welcome to my stop on the Can’t Wait for Spring Blog Hop! You can find the rest of the stops here. Today, we’re talking about first crushes and second chances! So make sure to read all the way through, because there’s an extra giveaway!
We all had that guy… the one that set our heart fluttering every time we caught a glimpse of him. The one that we willingly made a fool of ourselves for, just to get him to notice us. But let’s face it… sometimes it just ain’t happening.
And yet, even after a broken heart, he’s the guy we just can’t forget. Other guys may come and go, but he’s always there. We remember and we wonder… what if?
Sometimes second chances come along and we have the chance to turn a first crush into something real. But sometimes history gets in the way of that, too many memories of unrequited love and worse. Can you ever really start over? Is it worth it?
That’s the story of Eclipsed, my newest contemporary romance release. Wanna hear a secret? <whispers>It’s loosely based on my own middle school first crush and the boy that rocked my world. All of the embarrassing things Holly does… all me. Sadly. If any of my friends from middle school and high school read this book, they are going to know exactly who it’s about. If there was something humiliating I could do to get his attention I did it. And it worked… just not the way I intended. There’s a scene in Eclipsed, a chance meeting Holly and Nico have in a bar. That night happened. But then the story takes a different direction from real life. But that one evening? I felt vindicated!
Eclipsed is the ultimate story of what if. What if you get that second chance? What if it’s not what you dreamed of? What if it’s everything you dreamed?
Every woman has that guy. He’s the guy that turned her world upside down just by existing. He’s the guy she never forgets, no matter what other guys may come into her life… But sometimes history gets in the way. Can you ever really start over?
When Holly met Nico, she was thirteen and she fell head over heels in love. He’s that guy for her, the guy she just can’t get out of her mind. There have been other guys, even guys she loved. But none of them were Nico. None of them made her heart race and the butterflies dance the way he did. But so what? Life wasn’t a romance novel. The girl didn’t always get the guy and Holly knew it. She was living proof of it. So, why was it so damn hard to get him out of her head?
Did she even want to?
