My favourite gal across the pond has a steamy and awesome new New Adult Contemporary Romance releasing in February! I wanted to share the beautiful cover with you all and get you ready for some Emma Hart goodness...
A city girl.
A small town boy.
A summer they'll never forget.
Spending the summer at her Grammy's in Lilac Bay, Devon, is city girl Alexis 'Lexy' Edwards idea of hell. That is, until she reconnects with her childhood friend, Jen, and meets Alec Johnson.
Alec is the kind of guy Lexy knows she needs to stay away from. He's the village flirt, ridiculously hot and very dangerous to her self control. But there's a problem – she can't seem to keep him out, even though she knows he'll break her heart.
As Alec slowly strips away Lexy's defences and the two embark on a summer romance she never wanted, their feelings grow to more than either expected. But nothing lasts forever, and reality intrudes.
As her world is shaken to it's core, Lexy's self made prediction comes true when she discovers she's spent six weeks surrounded by secrets. Kept out by her family and the only guy she's ever trusted, she falls apart.
And when Grammy tells her that 'you might not end up where you wanted to be, but you'll always end up where you're meant to be,' she has to figure out if her meant to be is back home in London, or if it's been in Devon the whole time.
Here's a little excerpt to wet your palate:
"Who said I was flirting?" He asks innocently, but the gleam in his eye tells me he knows I've called him out.
And he likes it.
"Your eyes say it," I reply, "it's glaringly obvious."
He leans back on his elbows and I get a good view of his body.
I try not to look, but when faced with such beauty it's hard not to look, right?
I can see the contour of every muscle, every little shadow where one defined bit meets the next. I sweep my eyes over him involuntarily, from the broadness of his shoulders to his pecs, to his perfectly formed 6 pack and then the obvious 'v' that disappears under the bottom of his wetsuit. Add to the image little droplets of water pearling against his skin...
"Like what you see?" He winks again.
"About as much as I like vomiting after too many drinks on a Saturday night." I quip.
"It's okay, Lexy, I don't mind you looking. You can touch if you want." The challenge is in his eyes and I look upwards as if anyone up there could help me.
Which is silly, because clouds can't help.
"I'm not a touchy person, but thanks for offering."
"See that's a shame," he says in a lower, more sensual voice. "Because I am."
He runs his finger down my spine and I shiver, then curse myself.
"Like that, huh?"
"I'm ticklish?" I answer, but it comes out as more of a question.
He roams his eyes over my body shamelessly. "I bet you're ticklish in all sorts of places."
MMMMMM, yummy huh? So can't wait for this one to release on February 22!
