GIVEAWAY! Pretending He’s Mine

on March 13, 2013

Guys I am so excited to be hosting a giveaway for one of my fellow and favorite New Adult authors Lauren Blakely. I wrote about how much I love her for what she said about my New Adult Novella The Next Forever here– if you want proof.

Pretending He's Mine by Lauren Blakely for cover reveal

Today and today only she has agreed to give away THREE copies of her new novella Pretending He’s Mine! All you have to do, is post in the comments which actor/actress you would want to “Pretend is Yours”. Include your email address so Lauren can contact you about your prize! This contest ends today, March 13 at 8pm PST.

To get you excited for your possible win- here’s a teaser from the book that Lauren picked out herself!

But all the actors she’d auditioned for It’s Raining Men were stripper types, beefcake and bravado. This was not a job that necessitated swagger. Sutton had never gone for those kind of guys. Truth be told, she’d always had a thing for hipsters. A little bit of stubble, a little bit of attitude, a tattoo on the arm, jeans that showed off a fine piece of ass.

She picked up the picture frame, as if the dog with his tan and brown face had all the answers. “Tell me who’d be perfect for this role,” she said to the dog’s image. Then she pressed the frame to her chest and closed her eyes. He had to be sexy, but he had to have a touch of innocence to him. Why was it that men didn’t ever want to project a little bit of innocence? Was that such a bad thing? But so few were willing to show that side, as if being vulnerable, being fresh, would somehow shred every last ounce of masculinity from a man? Her ideal man would need a bit of the wide-eyed wonder that a superhero has when he first learns he has special powers. She scrolled through her photographic memory of faces, mentally crossing off all the ones that just wouldn’t do. Then, like a jack-in-the box springing to life, she shouted a victorious “yes!”

She placed the frame gently on her desk and moused over to the file she kept on her desktop from every single audition she’d ever held, clicking until she found the man she had in mind. He was adorable, and yet, had that chased-with-danger look in his eyes. She’d never regretted calling him in for any audition. He was witty, clever, and frankly, irresistible.
