Kissing Bandits welcomes Jean Joachim, author of Griff Montgomery, Quarterback
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
BLURB: Two people, two tragedies, two deep, devastating secrets…. Griff Montgomery is the headline-making, heart-breaking star quarterback of the Kings – a 6’4”, 33 year old womanizer. Lauren Farraday is a beautiful young interior designer, bitterly scarred by divorce, whose life is falling apart. Though they violently oppose one another in court over her beloved pug (she thinks he’s arrogant and conceited, and he thinks she’s a bitch on wheels), something happens….
These are the bare bones of this sizzling romance, riddled with passion — the first in a brand new series that’ll tantalize football fans and have readers glued to every page and on the edge of their seats!
Griff looks like a super hero with his tousled, mahogany hair, dazzling smile, dark, sexy eyes, and a body that does something indescribable to a tight pair of jeans. Though Lauren’s sworn off men forever, one look sends shivers down her spine, making her feel lonelier than ever before. Her lustrous, long hair, sparkling green eyes, and nonstop curves make his fingers tingle at the thought of touching her. How do they deal with their cataclysmic attraction? Will they be able to drop their protective facades – his to camouflage his grief over his sister and her family, for whom he was a surrogate father, moving 3000 miles away…. And hers’ to shield her from the incalculable loss of her husband and hoped for child?
For Griff, the thought of falling in love is as foreign as toe shoes and a tutu. For Lauren, it’s like putting on cleats and a helmet and running 50 yards…. Can they, will they, risk it?
Griff was struck dumb. He moved aside to let Marnie pass. Pieces started to fit together. The spoon. The nightmare. How does Bob fit into this? Anger at being lied to stoked his fire. He was determined to get at the truth.
At the front door, he stood by to let the women leave. Lauren was in the living room, cleaning up the coffee cups and cake plates. Griff leaned against the wall.
She turned as if she felt him standing there. “Hi. You’re home early.”
“Yeah. Just in time to see your book club leave. Seems like you meet often. For a book club, that is.”
Lauren avoided his stare. “Well, sometimes a new book—”
“Stop lying, Lauren. I know it’s not a book club. What the hell is going on?”
“Nothing that concerns you.” She turned away from him.
Griff gripped her upper arm, hard. “I disagree. We’re gonna talk. The truth. Now.” He sat her down in a chair in the kitchen while he retrieved a beer.
“I don’t see where you—”
“Last night gives me the right to know the truth. Talk.” He offered her a beer, too, which she accepted.
He straddled another chair, put his bottle to his lips, and eyed her. “Start talking.”
She squirmed a bit, cast her gaze at the floor, and cleared her throat.
“At me. Look at me,” he said, motioning with his fingers.
