Cover Reveal #3 - Fireworks

 

 

Fireworks

by Sarina Bowen

 

Skye Copeland is on paid leave from her broadcasting job after accidentally drawing a wiener on the traffic map.

 

Let that sink in. Like it’s her fault the traffic pattern created a perfect schlong? 

 

Skye isn’t laughing. She needs this job. And that’s the only reason she’s willing to chase down a story in her least favorite place—that hell on earth known as Vermont.

 

A quick trip. In and out. Much like - never mind. She can sneak into the town that once tried to break her, get the story and slide back into the good graces of her producer. Easy peasy.

 

But things go sideways the moment she steps over the county line. Her stepsister is running from a violent drug dealer. And the cop on the case is none other than Benito Rossi, the man who broke Skye’s teenage heart.

 

His dark brown eyes still tear her apart. And even as she steels herself to finally tell him off after twelve years, the old fireworks are still there.

 

Things are about to go boom.

Excerpt:

 

I grab a towel off a waiting stack of them and toss it onto the edge. “You can sit and put your feet in.”

 

She’s wearing a short little knit dress that’s been making me crazy all evening, so it would be easy enough for her to strip off those stockings, sit on the towel, and drop both feet in.

 

And that’s what she does. She eases one stocking down over a smooth knee and tugs it off.

 

I don’t want to stand there staring like a middle-school boy. Okay, I do want to. But I don’t want to make her uncomfortable. So I go over to the sound system instead, and I set my phone on the speaker and cue up a really old playlist. One she’ll recognize.

 

When I turn around again, she’s seated on the towel, both legs hanging down into the churning water. “Ah. Wow.” She looks up at me, her eyes sparkling. “Nice place you got here.”

 

“Isn’t it?” I toe off my shoes and kick them to the side.

 

The first song comes on, and it’s a Macklemore tune that we used to play far too often in our first office. Rebecca laughs immediately. “You didn’t! I haven’t heard this playlist in forever. But I’ll bet I still know every transition. Lady Gaga is next.”

 

“She sure is.”

 

Rebecca kicks her feet, making a splash. “I have a little confession to make.”

 

“What’s that?” I loosen my tie and slide the knot out.

 

“Well…” She grins up at me. “I used to have a crush on you. Back in the early days.”

My hands freeze on the tie silk. “Get out of town. You did not.”

 

“No, I really did.” Her cheeks are pink. “That first year especially. But you were taken, and you were my boss. Those two things made it pretty easy to tamp down, when you’re a practical girl like me.”

 

I walk over and drop down beside her, my back to the water, though, because I’m still wearing trousers and socks. “So how does that work, exactly?”

 

“What?” She gives me a sidelong glance, but then looks away again and won’t meet my eyes.

 

“How do you stop wanting someone? I’m a practical person, but I don’t see how that makes it any easier. Nothing seems to mute the raging attraction I have for you.”

Her chin turns quickly toward me, and I seize the opportunity to kiss her. And it only takes one kiss—one slide of my lips over hers, and I’m on fire again.

 

We’re facing opposite directions, so it’s awkward as hell. But I don’t even care. I take greedy sip after greedy sip of her mouth, until she pulls back to stare at me. Her color is high and her eyes are bright and happy. “This is like Twister.”

 

“It’s better,” I correct. Lady Gaga comes on, just as Becca said she would. “Are we getting into this pool or what?”

 

Becca kicks a foot in the water. “I’m tempted. But I don’t have a bathing suit.”

 

“Oh, snap.”

 

She smiles and shakes her head. “Are you really getting in?”

 

“We don’t have to.” I’m never going to pressure her.

 

Her fingers trail across the surface of the bubbling water. “But this is an adventure, right?”

 

“Right.” I stand up and remove my socks. She’s watching me. And I can’t read her expression. “What?”

 

“Just wondering what else you’re going to take off.” She smiles.

 

“Come here.” The order rolls off my tongue.

 

But Rebecca doesn’t blink. She gets up and turns toward me, curiosity in her eyes.

 

“You tell me. What am I taking off?”

 

She puts two hands tentatively on my chest, and I make myself be patient. Everything I ever wanted is on the other side of this moment. I just need us to break through this awkwardness—the “will we or won’t we” tension.  

 

Her fingers find the top button of my shirt. “I’m not getting in the water unless you are.”

 

That’s a compromise I can live with. I find my lower shirt buttons and work upwards, until we meet in the middle. She pushes the two halves of my shirt apart and runs a hand down my bare chest.

 

 

My inner caveman stands up and cheers.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #4, in the Brooklyn Bruisers series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to fully understand this amazing series, I recommend reading in order.

Rebecca AKA "Becca" has family obligations that come before her own needs. All. The. Time. When is it time for her? She has an amazing job, great friends and co-workers, and she is just too busy to enjoy.

Nate is a busy man. He owns many successful businesses, including a hockey team. He has worked with Becca for many years. Now he feels an attraction he is ashamed to act on. What would she think?

This is a long awaited story. I was so excited to read this book, and could not contain my excitement! It was everything I wanted and more. I got more humor, heat, banter, sexy times, hot hockey players - there is something for everyone! I just really like these characters and was so glad they were meant to be.

If only
Man Card (Man Hands Book 2) - Sarina Bowen,Tanya Eby

This is book # 2, in the Man Hands series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel,.  For reader enjoyment, and understanding of the series, I recommend reading this fun series in order!

 

Ash is thoroughly disgusted for being attracted to the man who, is basically her nemesis at work.  Rivals competing for each sale dollar, but who cannot resist the physical attraction that seems to consume then whenever they are in the same room together.  If only she could keep her hands, and her lips off of him!

 

Braht and his scheming ways only seem to entice Ash closer - while at the same time give her a reason to pull away from him.  He really does want her in his arms and in his bed.  How to keep a woman who is so determined to stay away?

 

This was such a fun read.  Truly inspiring, by way of the funny schemes the characters come up with to one-up each other, as well as the banter.  There is plenty of hat in this one too, folks.  Each page nearly singes your fingers as you read the fiery way these two go at it with every turn.  I though it was a good addition to the Man Hands series.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
