About RAINSTORM

People say when you’re dying your entire life passes before your eyes.
But it is not my time.
I’m not about to take my final breath.
Although it feels like the end of my life.
The blue folder sits, stamped with bold black letters.
Laughing at me. Mocking my marriage. Targeting my dream.
All is going away, imploding. The future I’ve envisioned becoming just debris.
The man I love requesting a divorce.
Making me collapse.
Drowning in an ocean of pain and confusion, I refuse to let this end my life.
This is hard, but I’m stronger.
The rainstorm is hitting me full force, but I’ll stand.
After all, I’m the woman who owns the sunshine.

Excerpt

 

“Hey…” He smiled, as a fresh strawberry margarita magically appeared in front of me, and although my jaw was already practically on the floor because of those glimpses of him I’d been stealing, they were nothing compared to having him so close. Those eyes, blue as the flames burning my skin. Scorching me. Branding my soul.

But still, this had to stop. It was ridiculous, and not at all how I should be reacting to a random stranger. He’d probably just recognized me and was a little starstruck. It happened occasionally, one of the penalties of being a minor TV celebrity.

I straightened my shoulders as I turned to cut him off, because if he was under the impression that I was some kind of a bimbo he was so, so wrong.

“Thank you, but I’m not interested, and as you can see I already have my own drink,” was all I could muster up. Although I was pretty sure he already knew who I was, he made no mention of it.

Bring it on.

His full lips curved in a smirk. I turned to look at Mandy Sue, who was staring at us like a hawk. A stunned one, I should add.

He said something in Mandy’s ear and she almost choked, her gray eyes as wide as saucers.

“What is it you want?” I asked, shaking my head at my friend’s reaction to whatever he’d said. “Who are you?”

“Just a random guy,” he replied with a smile, and my own faded.

Just a random guy, I thought while gazing at him. No, that was not true. A random guy would not look like that. There was nothing random about him. How his Henley T-shirt fit him and how I wanted to draw a road on his skin going south…

There was nothing random about the way my body reacted to his presence, alienating all my senses. Those eyes watching me so intensely as if they knew all the secrets of my body… and my soul.

There was nothing random about the way I trembled when his hand touched my shoulder softly, warming my skin; proclaiming that I was his and at the same time announcing to the world that he was mine.

There was definitely nothing random about the way he made me feel.

He was gorgeous in a panty-dropping way. More than that, some earth-shattering vibration was coming to me through the space separating us.

No, there was nothing random about him. About us.

“I’m Chase,” he stated confidently, his stare not dropping, not even slightly. Clearly, he was the kind of man who knew what he wanted. “Chase Holland.”

He’d set the course.

His determination like a spell between us.

He wasn’t even attempting to hide his intentions, no acting like a wolf in sheep’s clothing for him.

He was a hunter. The chaser. And clearly, he wanted me as his prey.

“And she’s Roselynn,” my friend offered on my behalf, even though I was right there, wondering where there was a hot potato to shove in her mouth when I needed it.

A Teaspoon of Trouble by @ShirleyJump #Romance #BookReview


Type-A chef Carolyn Henderson has walked away from her job at a trendy NYC restaurant after an abrupt family tragedy. Now, as a guardian to her four-year-old niece, Emma, and a very disobedient mutt – kids and dogs are so not her skill set – moving back to Marietta, Montana seems the best temporary option. But when confronted by her parents’ declining health, Carolyn has to face reality. And she’s going to need some serious help. So who better to ask than Matthew West, a blast from her high school past… and as hunky and helpful as ever.

Vet – and very eligible, if reluctant, Bachelor – Matthew West can’t believe his luck when his high school crush stumbles through his door. Dogs, kids, and gorgeous damsels in distress. Carolyn needs help with the pup, and he needs help whipping up delicious concoctions for the Bachelor Bake-Off. So she wants to make a deal: dog obedience lessons for cooking tips… but Matthew wants to broker quite a bit more…

Biography

When she’s not writing books, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shirley Jump competes in triathlons, mostly because all that training lets her justify mid-day naps and a second slice of chocolate cake. She’s published more than 60 books in 24 languages, although she’s too geographically challenged to find any of those countries on a map.

My Review

When chef Carolyn Henderson receives the fateful phone call about her sister’s death, she is shocked to learn she is now the legal guardian to a precocious four-year-old and a rambunctious puppy- neither of which fit into her busy lifestyle. Thinking she can talk her parents into keeping Emma, Carolyn returns to her childhood home of Marietta, Montana and runs into the one person she’d hoped to avoid- her ex-boyfriend.

Veterinarian Matthew West can’t understand how he let himself get talked into participating in a bake-off fundraising event and soon realizes he’s going to need help if he doesn’t want to look like an idiot in front of the entire town.

Serendipity occurs when he runs into his -the-one-who-got-away girlfriend, Carolyn, and they strike a bargain to help each other- no strings attached.

Will these two star-crossed lovers receive a second chance to bake up a forever romance?

Favorite Line

The Bake-Off was part of what Matt loved about Marietta—how the town worked like a big hug—

A Teaspoon of Trouble- Shirley Jump

This was an enjoyable read. I liked the interactions with Emma and the boisterous puppy and hoped Matthew would win his girl.

I give A Teaspoon of Trouble 4 lovely kisses
