It's Here!!

It's Here!!

Uh, that's all folks?

Lol, I know you've all seen the blurb a million times, but just as a reminder here it is one more time:

Dead broke and newly homeless, Tallis Carrington is on the walk of shame to end all walks of shame. Back to Rock Bay, where he’d once ruled as high school aristocracy with his band of jocks, and tormented a freshman named James Barry. Until a scandal reduced his family's name to little better than a curse word. He needs a job, and fast, so he can put the town in his rearview mirror once again. But the people of Rock Bay haven’t forgotten him, or the kid he used to be.

The only person in town willing to overlook his less than stellar reputation is Lex, the new coffee shop owner, who seems to despise Tally based on his reputation alone. Tally is desperate, so he takes the job, not understanding Lex’s hot and cold routine until he discovers that his gorgeous boss isn’t the newcomer he thought, but the very same kid he used to torture in school. Now he’ll pull out all the stops to prove he was never really the jerk everyone thought him to be. And if he can win Lex’s heart, the rest of the town should be a piece of coffee cake.

And, since the book's out now, I'll give you a new excerpt. How bout a kiss? We all like kisses:) Lex and Tally are in his car talking and then...well, lol. You know.

Tally chuckled tiredly. “I'm just grateful you gave me a chance. No one else would."
Then Lex did something that shocked Tally. He reached up and cupped his face in a comforting gesture, rubbing his thumb across Tally’s cheekbone.
“I’m glad I did,” he murmured.
Before Tally could open his mouth to ask another question, his lips were covered with Lex’s: soft, wine-flavored, everything Tally had wanted so desperately for the past too many weeks. He reached up tentatively and curled his hand around Lex’s neck, testing the softness of his skin. Tally felt a small nibble, and he opened his lips, needing everything that little bite had offered. Lex’s tongue slipped into his mouth, wet and delicious, making Tally moan.
His senses were reeling; he couldn’t believe it was really happening. He’d have never guessed that his night would end up where it was—in the dark warmth of Lex’s car with Lex’s tongue twined around his and loving every second of it. He wanted to pull Lex over the stick shift and into his lap, wanted to strip every stitch of clothing off of him and taste all of his dark, secret places. He wanted to feel Lex come, hot and wet all over him, until they were both shivering piles of worn-out happiness. Tally’s fingers tightened reflexively in Lex’s hair, and he bit gently at the softness of that plump lower lip. He never wanted the kiss to end.
Apparently, he was the only one who felt that way. Lex pulled back and hung his head.
“God, I’m sorry.”
“What for? Didn’t you notice me kissing you back?” Tally went to pull him in for another kiss, but Lex resisted.
“But you work for me, and you just found out about me, before—and I didn’t ask, and this is such a bad idea.” He was stammering and tripping over his tongue.
“It was pretty amazing for being so bad.” Tally couldn’t help but smile, even though his hands were starting to shake.
“Bad ideas tend to be that way.” Lex gave him a nervous glance. “I really am sorry. Just ’cause you’re the one gay guy in town doesn’t mean I should hit on you, right? Listen, I’d better go. I’ll see you on Monday, okay?” I'll let you read the rest of that scene in the book:)

It's not on ARe yet, but I'm sure it will be soon!
