Tara Andrews' LONG OVERDUE


                                                LONG OVERDUE

  
Thank you for having me today, Taryn.  I know you recently celebrated Frost’s book birthday, and today is a little milestone for me, too.  Long Overdue has been out a whole week.  So it’s my one week release anniversary… well, weekaversary? 
I know.  It can’t get any more exciting.  LOL.  But we need to celebrate the little things in life; otherwise we can get stuck in the same ole routine.  That’s where we find Blake at the beginning of Long Overdue.  He’s looking for a change and it leads him to contact 1Night Stand.  Only Madame Eve sends him Jill, who is all about protecting her heart.  Now Blake needs to convince her to see things his way.

Since I’m celebrating Blake and Jill’s story being out a whole week, I’ll be giving away a copy of Long Overdue to a commenter.  Please tell me the last thing you celebrated.  I’ll be using the high-tech method of having one of my kids pick a name from hat to choose a winner.
Blurb:

Jill Malone has been looking for love for all the wrong reasons. A reality check has her signing up for a no-strings attached night to simply forget about forever after. The last thing she expected was to know her blind date.

Blake Anders doesn’t need help finding a date, but he’s tempted by 1Night Stand’s reputation of arranging exactly what a person needs. And he needs more. Though doubtful, he agrees to one night and hopes to discover his perfect match. He didn’t count on Madame Eve reaching deep into his past to give him a night with the woman he never forgot. 

Fearing another broken heart, Jill works to keep herself from becoming attached, but Blake goes all in to convince her that he wants their long-overdue love to be more than a one-night stand…

Excerpt:

“I think there’s been some sort of mistake,” she managed.

“But, we’re here. And I don’t think it’s a mistake.”

Of course, he’d be polite, while wondering what happened to the size zero, with extra-large breasts, he ordered. “I don’t know.” She shook her head and swore disappointment flashed across his face. “I’ll be honest; I am not comfortable.”

“And let me be honest. I’m looking forward to an evening with you.” Ooooh, smooth. Then again, she didn’t expect less, given his tabloid reputation. Still, her legs felt a little less stable.

She faced him. What really went on in his head? “You don’t find it strange that you know me?”

His killer smile set off butterflies in her belly and a warning bell in her mind. “No. In fact, it makes sense.”

“Why is that?”

“Because I used to wonder about you. A lot.”

Jill forgot to breathe. Forgot almost everything. Did he say…?

“Didn’t you ever wonder about me?”

Jill exhaled. “I’m taking the Fifth.” His smile grew. She shook her head, recognizing dangerous territory. “I’m still not sure.” Not sure she’d measured up. Not sure she’d survive with her heart intact.

“Stay for a drink.”

She wavered at his low-voiced offer. Dammit, he’d become even more handsome than she remembered.
