Happy Friday everybody!Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
This week my book is Thrown for a Curve by Sugar Jamison. I got this Feb. 25 release from St. Martin's Press via NetGalley. Here is the description:
WHEN YOU’RE A big girlBeginning:
Cherri has often wished she were thin and graceful like a ballerina instead of being a six-foot-tall blonde with curves that require serious caution. Surely a charming Irishman like her new boss Colin, with his throaty brogue and to-die-for bod, would never go for someone like Cherri. Unless maybe he’s looking for the exact opposite of a delicate lass?
THERE'S MORE OF YOU TO LOVE
When Colin hired Cherri to work in his furniture-restoration shop, he had his eyes, first and foremost, on her artistic talents. But now he can’t help but see Cherri for the lush, spirited beauty that she is…and, soon enough, he finds himself mixing business with pleasure. But Cherri turns out to be more vulnerable than she appears. Is she in need of more than Colin can give? Or could it be that a feeling stronger than lust has him thrown for a curve?
I feel pretty...Friday 56:
"Almost finished." A heavy blast of breath-stealing hair spray hit Charlotte Rudy just above her crown.
"Friction?" He shook his head, not sure he understood her thick accent.
"You know friction. You men always go out looking for friction at the discos."
"You mean action?"
