Release Day Book Blitz with Excerpt & Giveaway! Nick & Eve (North Pole Unlimited #3) Elle Rush!

 

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Nick and Eve 
by Elle Rush 
(North Pole Unlimited, #3) 
Publication date: November 19th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

 

 

BLURB:

 

Nick’s plan: dodge his grandmother’s matchmaking attempts by claiming Eve is his date for Christmas. He probably should have asked Eve first.

 

Although Nick Klassen is grateful when Eve rides to his rescue after he breaks down outside of December, Manitoba, he can’t run fast enough when his meddling grandmother tries to set him up with the pretty tow-truck driver. Then he gets an idea.

 

Between juggling extra hours at work and a never-ending Christmas to-do list, Eve LeBlanc doesn’t have time for a new man in her life. But ever since she picked Nick up on the side of the road, she’s been running into him everywhere.

 

His flirtations started innocently enough but when his grandmother invites “his girlfriend” to the family’s Christmas dinner, Nick realizes if he wants to stop pretending about Eve, he must come clean. Once Eve learns of his deception, he’ll need Santa’s help to turn their fake relationship in the real thing.

ELLE’S CHRISTMAS PLAYLIST

 

 

There is nothing like a good playlist to put you in the right frame of mind. They are especially important when you are trying to write a trapped-by-a-blizzard scene during an August heat wave. Fortunately, I have a massive collection of Christmas music to get me through.

 

(I’m dating myself, but the first holiday album I can remember singing along to is “Elvis’ Christmas Album.” My mom was the biggest Elvis fan on the planet. I still know all the words to “Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me”. Go ahead, test me!)

While I prefer upbeat carols, I must admit my all-time favourite is a little on the sadder side. “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” breaks my heart every time. It’s perfect for every Christmas movie when the hero and heroine end up tragically separated for the holidays...just before a seat magically opens up on the next flight home, or a group of strangers offer to get them closer to home in a town-by-town relay, or a tow truck appears to save the day (hint, hint.) Because every Christmas romance needs to end with the couple kissing on Christmas Day!

 

My playlists also get a workout when I’m baking Christmas cookies and wrapping presents.

 

 

Top 5 Songs:

 


1. I’ll Be Home for Christmas (because it must lead to a happy holiday story ending)


2. White Christmas (I’m from Manitoba – all Christmases are under two feet of snow)


3. All I Want for Christmas is You (Mariah Carey has the voice of an angel)


4. Mary’s Boy Child/Oh My Lord (instantly lifts my spirits, it’s so bouncy)


5. Christmas Eve (I too have waited all year for this, Kelly)

 

I have several Christmas playlists, but all my favourites are listed under “Elle Rush’s Christmas Playlist” on Spotify, so please have a listen for yourself. (You can also search under “ellerushauthor”.)

SA Brown is a writer in every sense of the word. She started as a contributing author in one of Zane’s Chocolate Flava series. After that, she was hooked.

Born and raised in Mississippi, SA began writing full time in 2010. She started writing one act plays and producing them in the community theaters. She completed the first draft of Still Not Satisfied in 2012 and actively searched for a publisher. After numerous rejection letters, she decided to focus on the stage. She traveled South Mississippi with her socially motivated one act plays using the Theater for Social Change model.

 

In 2015, SA moved to Atlanta and felt it was time to bring Still Not Satisfied to life. She found Prodigy Gold Books, a press out of Philadelphia and a dream was born.

In addition to her novel, she has launched her own production company, SAB Entertainment. Through this channel, SA is writing and producing short films. In May 2018, she produced her first full stage play, Family Lies and plans to tour the Southeast with it in 2019. Always writing, SA just completed the screenplay adaptation of Still Not Satisfied which she will pitch to producers. Currently, she is writing a web series, The Inner Circle. SA hopes to start production in summer 2019.


With hopes of educating while entertaining, SA’s biggest desire is that everyone learns a life lesson every time they walk away from any of her stories.

A Night To Remember by Celeste Bradley & Susan Donovan
A Night to Remember - Celeste Bradley,Susan Donovan

In Wedding Knight Katrina Trapp takes her nervous twin sister's place at the altar, only to find out her sister never had any intentions of marrying Alfred Theodious Knight in the first place...


This was a quick, quirky and funny little romp about a woman switching places with her sister, who ends up disappearing and leaves her in the lurch of being married to a supposed tyrant of a man. But as the two newlyweds come to get to know each other, they also rediscover themselves, and dare we hope fall in love?

I liked the two protagonists, although I felt Katrina was a tad too bratty at times, and I loved how they slowly changed for one another as they got to know each other and developed tender feelings of one another. Of course, seeing how everything was based on a switch, the inevitable twist had to come.
I felt it was resolved a little too quickly, but that's scandal for you.

A lovely little budding romance story.



In Have Mercy Winifred Mackland, having failed to deliver a good manuscript, is packed away on a forced writing retreat by her agent...Who turns out to have matchmaking tendencies...


Quick, funky and hot as hell.

Initially, I felt it was all moving a tad too quickly (even for a short story), but as it moved along, and the two got into their easy rhythm beyond jumping naked into the hot tub on the day they met, I came to love them and their little romance.

The progress and the reservations thanks to Mac's profession, was organic and realistic, and they were super cute and super hot together. Besides, the story made me smile, which is always a plus.

This is Love by Caroline Nolan
This Is Love - Caroline O'Nolan

 ๏ ๏ ๏  Book Blurb ๏ ๏ ๏ 

 
 
Rachel Miller had love, life, and happiness...until she didn't.

Uncertain of how to cope and move on without him, Rachel's life comes to halt as she mourns the loss of her fiance Ben. Then one night she discovers it doesn't have to.

By way of dreams, Rachel and Ben continue to live the life they had planned together. It's unconventional, it's not even real, but it's enough for Rachel. For the first time since Ben's death, she's happy...whole. That is until she runs into someone she barely knew from years ago and suddenly real life is just as great as her dream one.

Now Rachel doesn't know what to do. Will letting someone new in threaten what she has with Ben? Or will their love story threaten her new happiness? Is it crazy to chase after a ghost while being caught up by someone very real?
 
 
 
 
๏ ๏ ๏  My Review ๏ ๏ ๏ 
 
Another win for me in the romance genre...yay...sometimes I feel like I'm losing all my interest in this genre, but books like this one are helping to restore it.

The blurb only tells you about the fiancé who Rachel loses, it only hints at the new man she meets...and he (Jax) is at the center of this story and Jax is one who had a hand in making this story so memorable for me.  This story at its core is about grieving and learning to move on from that grief.  With characters who not only feel real but are also relatable, and a sorrowful but ultimately uplifting storyline to go with them, I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
