Today, I’m posting a few sentences from Finding the Dream as part of Marketing for Romance Writers’ Book Hooks blog hop. In this scene, Jessica’s car has broken down and her neighbor, Eric, who she doesn’t get along with, has pulled over to help her.
Frustration bubbling up inside her, she yanked her purse out of the car. As she unzipped it, tires crunched on the gravel behind her car. A black sedan pulled to a stop.
Oh God. The last thing she needed was help from some psycho. Or her parent’s neighbor. No. No. No. Hadn’t she seen enough of him for one day? Suddenly calling her mother didn’t seem that bad.
“Looks like you’re a little overheated.”
She ignored his double entendre as she blew her sweaty bangs out of her eyes. “I don’t need help. I’ve got everything under control.”
Jessica James had her dream—a career on Broadway as a successful actress—until one night when it was taken all away. Forced to move back to Lincoln Falls and live with her parents, Jessica’s only goal is to regain her career and go back to New York. She doesn’t count on a honeysuckle hating man standing in her way or the town of Lincoln Falls itself. Now everything she thought she ever wanted may not be her dream at all.
Eric Mason and his daughter have quietly lived next door to Jessica’s parents. That all changes when he meets Jessica. She is overly dramatic and the most annoying person he’s ever met. Yet, he can’t get her off his mind.
Will they find a new dream together?
