Please join me in welcoming Ava Claire ...
So happy to be here today on SOS Aloha, talking about my latest, The Sweetest Jerk Series! My story follows Natalee Madison, who kicks ass in all things baked. She's finally breaking into the competitive catering business, scoring the most talked about wedding in the city. When it comes to romance though, her luck is anything but sweet. A sexy blast from the past, at the event that could make or break her business, will turn her life upside down...
Which brings me to my post today! There's just something about unexpected love and second chance romances that makes me swoon. I'm a sucker for redemption; when all seems lost and you think they'll call it quits, there's a look, words, or a song that makes you believe it's all gonna be alright. Better than alright, even--maybe they'll live happily ever after.
For me, that moment is personified in two sentences during the end scene of Sweet Home Alabama.
(Just in case you haven't seen it I don't wanna spoil the ending...and you should watch it asap because it's amazing!).
My question for you guys is: What book/song/scene from a movie makes you melt and root for one more shot at love?
I loved THE WEDDING SINGER with Drew Barrymore (left) and Adam Sandler (right). Robbie wins Julia back by singing "I want to grow old with you" as Billy Idol cheers them on. I also adore all the 80s references in the movie.
Let's learn more about Ava Claire ....
Ava Claire is a sucker for Alpha males and happily ever afters. When not putting pen to paper or glued to her Kindle, Ava likes road tripping, watching an unhealthy amount of Netflix, karaoke and vintage fashion.
New Year’s Resolution: No. More. Jerks.
Natalee Madison's life is finally on the upswing. Her business, Madison Creations, is finally gaining traction, and if she slays a high profile wedding, she could be catapulted to heights she's only dreamt of.
She doesn't do dating and it suits her just fine, because she ends it before things get complicated.
And then she sees his face.
The best man.
And based on their last run in, the biggest jerk alive.
He's dangerous. Lethal for her 'no complications' approach to men, since he's the one that inspired the approach in the first place.
But when she looks into his eyes, she knows that some rules are meant to be broken…
Billionaire Jackson Colt has success, wealth, power and a presence that makes his competitors tremble with fear. Beneath the armor is a man with a dark and painful past. A man with a heart that he guards by any means necessary.
As far as Sadie McLeod is concerned, 'escort' isn't a bad word. It's a job, one of two that she works to pay off a debt that is not her own. Tough as nails and far from a damsel in distress, love is a luxury she can't afford.
Can they put aside their dark pasts and find the love they both desperately want, underneath it all?
