Giveaway (Closed): Winter Reading Sorted


Hello from a wet and wintery Perth.

Last month I promised you  a giveaway and today seemed like the perfect day for it. I’m sipping a hot peppermint tea from a lovely cup given to me by my friend, Ann B Harrison and listening to the rain on the roof. That had me thinking about curling up under the blanket with a good book.

I’ve just finished the final proofread of Overdrive which is due for release on June 26, 2018 and working on the next book in the series, Fast Lane. In between, I’m catching up on my reading list which includes: Blood Tree River by Sarah Barrie, As I Am by Mel Teshco, One Night Wife by Ainslie Paton and Kiss Me at Willoughby Close by Kate Hewitt.

Now, about that giveaway…

The Love Experiment by Ainslie Paton


The Love ExperimentThe Love Experiment by Ainslie Paton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ainslie Paton has the gift to create a page turner. I loved this story from beginning to end. The hero is broody and mean, ala James Dean, yet you can’t help but fall in love with him. The heroine is sassy and strong. She takes no nonsense from him, but when he does bruise her heart, boy, do you feel it like an arrow through yours. The emotional ride is spectacular, the characters come to life on the page. Ms Paton is a genius storyteller, and if you like hard-hitting, edge-of-the-seat, gritty-yet-knee-buckling romance, be sure not to miss this one.

I received an ARC for honest review.

Can you fall in love in thirty-six questions?

The closest rookie lifestyle writer Derelie Honeywell gets to megastar reporter Jackson Haley is an accidental shoulder brush in The Courier’s elevator. That is, until the love experiment: a study designed to accelerate intimacy using thirty-six questions and four minutes of sustained eye contact.

As far as Derelie is concerned, Jack Haley has always been a man best imagined in his underwear. He’s too intimidating otherwise. But participating in the love experiment is her make-or-break chance. With another round of layoffs looming, Derelie knows holding on to her job means getting the story no matter what. Even when the what is kissing Jack like a maniac.

Jack Haley has zero interest in participating in a clickbait story. He didn’t plan on finding Derelie smart and feisty and being mesmerized by her eyes. He certainly had no intention at all of actually falling in love with her.

The conclusion to this experiment? Thirty-six questions might lead to love, but finding the answer to happily-ever-after is a lot more complicated.
