Do you ever read new adult novels? What are they, you ask?! They are stories about characters dealing with the issues of life that follow leaving the nest. I love them because I get to experience a character’s journey through those white-water rapids of new adulthood from the safe distance of my… let’s just say… “settled” age.
I’m really looking forward to Another Shot At Love because I adore Niecey Roy’s voice. I love the humor, mixed in there with all the angst that goes along with those years when you haven’t yet sorted out who you are and when you’ve suffered disappointments and, so often, a broken heart. Niecey knows how to turn the screw on my excitement for this book — by providing these teasers ahead of time. I think they are so fun, so I’ll be sharing 4 of them in October. Here’s the first installment:
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romantic Comedy
Expected Publication Date- November 2013
“When’s the wedding?”
“Early next spring. I’m hoping Jeremy will want to have the wedding and reception at the vineyard. Can you imagine? It’ll be gorgeous!” Lexie crossed her legs and leaned into the table, her eyes sobering as she lost her smile. “The engagement party is less than three months from now. At the country club.”
Reality set in like dead weight on the bottom of my stomach. I knew what country club she meant—the one where Brent was a member. The thought of having to fake nice around him in a room full of his close friends and family made the contents of my stomach curdle.
I couldn’t catch a break.
And then another queasy thought occurred.
“Oh God,” I breathed. “Please tell me I’m not the Maid of Honor and Brent’s not the Best Man, Lexie.”
The answer was just as obvious as the worry wrinkle between Lexie’s eyebrows. I probably wore an identical wrinkle between my own brows.
“Oh crap,” I muttered and clenched my jaw together.
“You’re over him, remember?” Lexie’s tone lacked conviction. “It’s going to be fine.”
“Of course I’m over him. That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t mind hitting him with a bat. Better yet, never seeing him ever again for the rest of my life has a nice ring to it.” I sounded pouty and I was. The whole purpose of avoiding any place Brent hung out was to never see him again. I’d always known Jeremy and Lexie were headed for a big fancy wedding, but I thought there’d at least be another year to get over wanting to strangle my weasel-of-an-ex-boyfriend before I’d have to participate in an event that involved him again.
~~ Blurb ~~
Imogen Gorecki has a problem—her twin sister just got engaged, and guess who’s the best man? That’s right, her scum-of-an-ex-boyfriend whom she caught cheating with a bottle-blonde, with fake breasts and a stripper’s flexibility. There’s a disturbing possibility her eyes will never recover.
Gen needs a date for the engagement party, but finding Mr. Perfect in a time crunch is proving impossible. Just when she’s about to give up, she face-plants into the crotch of the sexiest guy she’s ever met.
Matt Sesnick is everything Gen wants in a man —except he’s not interested in a relationship. Can she convince Matt to take another shot at love, or will Gen’s pregnant, hormonal older sister, her bridezilla twin, and all of her past Mr. Wrongs get in the way of their happily-ever-after?
