LOVE AT THE ELECTRIC & Giveaway


Love at the Electric
by Jenn Hughes

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:   Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Walking wildfire Sam Owens gets Lillian hot in all the right ways, but there's more to the software CEO than just a pretty face. And a great body. And… Oh, right. He’s the enemy, according to the contract she signed with his rival. So when they secretly meet up for movies at The Electric, Lillian can't get too involved with Sam. She could lose her job. Her reputation. And her heart.

Sam is in love with his company, his image, his video games, and his ability to avoid commitment--at least until he levels up with attorney Lillian Walker. With her love of campy horror flicks and a body that makes him want to howl like a cartoon wolf, Sam’s found his leading lady. Too bad getting close to Lillian means tangling with her boss, a supervillain in the making.

In the nights leading up to Christmas, movies at The Electric mean more than just mutant toads and cannibal fruitcakes. Between shenanigans with old flames and an arch nemesis out to destroy any future they might have, Sam and Lillian learn the hard way that falling in love isn’t as easy as it looks on screen. When the past gets in the way of a perfect “the end,” there’s really only one solution--if werewolf Santas can bring them together, zombie ex-girlfriends can keep them together.

After all, anything’s possible at The Electric.

Excerpt:


Swooooshhhh and thunk.

Lillian had wounded his pride like an arrow in an ogre’s soft underbelly. She’d called him a cover boy. Like he was in a boy band, and not the CEO of Origin, the best software and tech development company in the country. Scratch that—world. And despite that fact, she had yet to flirt with or flatter him…

Hold up. Intimately?

Where had they met? Where had they intimately met? He’d remember touching a body like that…

Hot cocoa.

When he looked at Lillian, hot cocoa came to mind. Not helpful in the slightest, except for the affirmation he was probably in the midst of a coronary and his brain starved of oxygen.

“Riiiiight. Yeah, we met at that…uh, that—”

“Don’t panic. I was joking. It wasn’t intimate at all. It was six months ago, and we only shook hands,” she reassured him.

It didn’t help. Sam couldn’t even remember where they’d shook hands. He pressed his lips together and felt his eyes bug out like Panic Pete. Lillian groaned melodramatically and then laughed.

“I’m on Preston Lavery’s legal team. You gave a terrific speech at the cloud development symposium in New York City. Preston introduced us afterward.”

White hot rage coursed through Sam. The mere mention of Preston Lavery was as good as a cold shower. He slid his hand below the tabletop and hid his clenched fist, pressing it down into the vinyl seat.

“Well, that explains why Rik didn’t elaborate on you any more than he did. You’re the enemy.”




Really enjoyed this book!  The plot and characters are great!  Well written!  Highly recommended!
