Excerpt

There really is so much we need to talk about and I don’t want to push her into anything too soon. The last thing I want to do is hurt her or scare her because I’m moving too fast.
 It drives me crazy how much I care about her. I watch as she talks with everyone. Her smile and those eyes can light up a room, at least for me they can. She’s such a caring person; always putting the needs of others before her own. I know one of the things she wanted to accomplish with her move to Boston was to start putting herself first more often. It’s hard for her; it’s not in her nature to push others away. It’s one of her qualities that makes me love her so much. No matter what she needs or what I want to do for her, she always makes a point to make sure I have what I need first.
 She’s something so special to me now that I don’t know what I would do if I lost her.

REVIEW BLITZ: THE VALENTINE'S ARRANGEMENT by KELSIE LEVERICH

The Valentines Arrangement Review Blitz



Review Blitz



TVA
 
Book Title: The Valentine's Arrangement Author: Kelsie Leverich Genre: Contemporary Romance Release Date: January 1, 2013 Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions
 
 
Synopsis
 
 
Tattoo artist Ronnie Clark is counting the days until Valentine’s Day is over. Ronnie doesn’t do romance. She doesn’t do flowers or dates, and she sure as hell doesn’t do love—not anymore. Love leads to heartbreak, and she’s vowed never to let herself get hurt again.

Sergeant First Class Kale Emerson is home on his mid-tour leave from Iraq, but he only has one thing on his mind—returning to his soldiers to finish leading their mission. He’s dedicated to his men and to his country, and he’s not interested in getting wrapped up in a distracting relationship…but casual sex, that’s a different story. From the moment he sees Ronnie, he wants her. And he agrees to her terms—no romance, no fluff—just passion.

But as their sexual chemistry ignites, the lines of their arrangement get blurry, and Ronnie starts to push Kale away. And when Kale realizes he’s found his match in this razor-tongued, gorgeous woman who is hell bent against love, winning her heart could be the toughest battle he has ever fought.

excerpt


Ronnie squeezed her way to the bar sending a few “go-to-hell” looks at some drooling guys as she passed them. Luckily, a heavyset redhead stood up from her bar stool at the same time Ronnie reached the bar.

“Can I snag your set?” Ronnie asked the woman.

“It’s all yours,” she said before she walked away.

Thank God, because Ronnie’s feet needed an intermission.

“What’s your poison?” a voice said close to her ear making her already heated skin even stickier from the warmth of his breath. She turned around on her stool to see a very sexy Sergeant First Class Emerson standing behind her with a scruffy smile on his face. He was in the same worn jeans as before but he had changed his shirt to a snug-fitting, black button-down with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows. He was such a pretty boy.

She forced herself to tear her eyes away from him to keep from staring at his chest and the way his damn preppy shit pulled across it. “Patron.” “

Two shots of Patron,” he told the skanky bartender in a tube top and a pair of jeans that was unfortunately close to showing off her lady goods. The bartender smiled and was all to happy to tend to him.

She leaned seductively over the bar as she slid the shots to Kale. “Here ya go.” She winked.

“Seriously?” Ronnie huffed, raising her eyebrows at the bartender before grabbing her shot and tossing it back. The bartender looked from Ronnie to Kale—who was more than likely mind-fucking Ronnie at that very moment by the way he was looking at her—before pouting her way on to the next customer.

“What are you doing here?” Ronnie asked, peeling the paper off her beer bottle.

“Turns out, this tattoo I got on my back stings like hell, figured I could use a drink to dull the pain a little.” He leaned in close to her. “Plus the idea of watching you dance held its own persuasion.

” A wanton shiver slithered down Ronnie’s spine and she hoped like hell Kale didn’t notice. “So what, now you want small talk?”

“Small talk, no talk, I don’t care,” he said, motioning with his hand for the bartender to bring them another round. Great, Ronnie was going to have to witness that bimbo make a fool of herself again. Kale slowly and deliberately stepped closer to her.

She could almost feel him against her side. “Dance with me.”

“I’m not dancing with you.” “Dance with me,” he said again, offering his hand to her.

“Look, Soldier, I don’t know who the hell you think you are, but you can’t just order me around.” He leaned down and ran his nose up the side of her neck and she stilled.

“Well as of right now, I’m finding it extremely difficult not to push you up against this bar and put my mouth on your body you’re tempting me and I just might do it. So, you can either dance with me and let me attempt to get the image of you squirming beneath me out of my head, or you can leave with me now and we can replay that image in real time.”

Ronnie’s formerly clear mind started swimming with the memory of his body crushing her against the door eagerly kissing her, and the feel of his body pressing her into the couch, and then the feel of his mouth, oh his fucking mouth on her…damn it. “

And you think I’ll just leave with you, why?” she asked, pulling her mind back to the present where Kale was leaning dangerously close to her. She could smell the faint scent of soap on his skin.

“Because I know you enjoyed the little taste of me that you had back at the shop, and God knows I enjoyed tasting you.” He smirked. “And because I can see it in your eyes now. Dance with me.”

The bartender slid the shots in front of them, thankfully without attempting to flirt, and Ronnie once again tilted the shot back, letting the clear smooth liquid run down her throat. She stood up and grabbed his hand causing that fucking dimple to drill deep into his cheek.

 “You better not make me regret this,” she said, leading the way to the dance floor.

****5 STAR ****REVIEW

Ronnie Clark grew up in a trailer park with her alcoholic mother that forced her to grow up and take care of herself at an early age.
Ronnie knows what it’s like to be in love, she was engaged her high school boyfriend Brandon and they vowed to make a better life for themselves.
She gave up her dream of art school to follow Brandon after he enlisted in the army and when he was deployed to Afghanistan he did the unthinkable… he cheated on her with a female medic. This broke Ronnie’s heart  photo 6b695ac6b4002021b886ed1dcc64de62.jpg

and the once sweet and vulnerable girl became a hard-shelled bitter woman and vowed to never fall in love or let another solider destroy her.
She got a job as a tattoo artist and became one of the best in her business.
Kale Emerson was on leave from Iraq wanted a tattoo to honor his troops and walked right into Ronnie’s life. chris evans photo 3323786538_494b3aeef0_o1.jpg

Ronnie; “You can stop mind f**cking me now.”
Kale; “Excuse Me.”

Neither one was looking for a relationship, but they couldn’t hide their attraction to one another so they came to an arrangement; just sex, no strings for the 5 days left of his leave.
 photo woman.jpg

I loved Ronnie; she was a strong independent woman, rowdy, tough and vulgar. She didn’t take shit from anyone. Kale well he was “Captain America” handsome, tall, broad and with defined arms.

  Swoon… photo mullet-dress574_chris-evans-for-gucci-guilty-intense-1055689-flash.jpg

We all know that even the best-laid plans can sometimes change and it didn’t take long for Kale to realize he wanted more. Ronnie on the hand knows what it feels like to be the one left behind.

 photo tattooed_bw_by_armchairpsychologist-d53yciw.jpg

Sometimes the heart over-rules the brain and if Ronnie can just follow her heart she may find that love is worth the risk.

A well-written story, no loose ends, characters that I liked and a great first book by Kelsie Leverich. I loved it, finished it in one day couldn’t put it down and now I read everything Kelsie Leverich publishes.
