I have a few announcements to make before I post this teaser. Let’s begin with the title change of With Me. I loved, loved the name of the book, but once you see the book cover you will understand why I decided to change it. The book is now called Impossible, which was my original name for it. The series will still be called the With Me series because all the books in the series are about people being with each other (or in some cases, not being with each other). I have vague, vague plans to name the final book in the series With Me. That would be a few years from now though because there’s a lot more to come from the With Me series.
Speaking of the cover, Oh My Gosh! I am in love with the cover! My cover designer, Stephanie Mooney is psychic, because I gave her a vague cover concept and she delivered in every way possible! She gave me two options, both of which I loved, but ultimately I had to make a choice. I hope y’all like my final cover! I promise I will share it with you just as soon as I receive the final copy!
Which brings me to the release date. I was hoping to get Impossible published over the weekend, but I can’t do that without a cover. I would like to say that it will be published by next weekend but it all comes down to whether or not my cover is ready. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
Finally, giveaway! Hope Conquers is for a great cause and I want to give you a copy of Destiny Binds (which is an amazing book!) so please enter to support Tammy Blackwell’s cause.
Finally, here is the teaser for this week. Enjoy!
“Ashton,” he said, a smirk on his lips. “If you keep looking at me like that then I’m gonna have to do something about it.”
My face flushed red hot, and I quickly handed him the glass. He watched me closely as I poured the lemonade into it, my hand shaking the entire time. Luca was having such a profound effect on me that I couldn’t even manage something as simple as pouring.
He quickly downed the glass and I refilled it, trying to get my shakes under control. At one point, Luca covered my hand with his to control the shaking, and I thought I was going to pass out from his proximity to me.
When he’d had a third glass, he handed it back to me and pulled his shirt from where he’d tucked it into the back of his jeans. His green eyes glinted as he wiped the sweat from his chest, his eyes never leaving mine. Not once did I look away—I don’t think I was capable of moving—and he seemed to be enjoying the attention I was giving him.
He stuck the shirt in the back of his jeans, a smile playing around his mouth.
“You haven’t said a word.” He leaned in closer until his lips were inches away from mine. “That’s not like you at all. Normally, you’d be calling me a freak by now. Are you sick?”
“Um…” Come on! I had to get a hold on myself. This was getting ridiculous. “I’m…just surprised, that’s all. What happened to the crazy hair and the ugly clothes?”
Luca shrugged. “It was time for a change. Why? Is it bothering you?” There was a playful hint to his voice, and I could tell he was teasing me. He was probably loving my reaction.
“No, why would it bother me?” I snapped.
“Oh, I don’t know. Maybe you like what you see.”
“I do not!” I argued, but judging from his broadening grin, I could tell I didn’t sound too convincing.
My critique partners both have crushes on Luca so that can only be a good thing!
Have a great weeks everyone! Happy reading!
