A Perfect Trade by Anna Sugden ♥ Book Blast & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Contemporary Romance)

A Perfect Trade (Harlequin Superromance)
A win-win negotiation?

Truman "Tru" Jelinek's life is pretty much off the rails. With his professional hockey career on thin ice, and his personal life falling apart, he's ready to implement some serious changes. Helping Jenny Martin—the only girl he's ever loved—make her dreams a reality is a good place to start.

There's just one problem: Jenny doesn't want his help. She barely wants to speak to him. But Tru is prepared to negotiate a deal that even Jenny can't refuse. As trading favors turns into sharing passion, he has to face the truth that when it comes to Jenny, the game is far from over.
Excerpt 5 – To read the entire first chapter, please visit http://goddessfishpromotions.blogspot.com/2014/06/book-blast-perfect-trade-by-anna-sugden.html and visit each blog in order.

As Jenny hung up, Jake “Bad Boy” Badoletti and Truman “Tru” Jelinek stopped beside her. Their expressions were grim; the strain of the loss etched across their faces.

She passed on her sister’s message and hugged Bad Boy, deliberately focusing her attention on him, not his best friend. “Tough night, guys. The ice was tilted against you.”

“Yeah.” Jake hitched a shoulder wearily. “It’s been that way since the All-Star break.”

“It’s bound to change sometime.” Her encouragement sounded hollow.

“The odds of us making the cut for the play-offs are pretty slim. We’d have to win ten of our last sixteen games and hope Buffalo and Washington slip up to have a chance of making a wild-card place.” He scrubbed a hand over his jaw. “Guess I’ll be improving my golf handicap come April 7.”

“At least you’ll get to spend more time with your personal fan club.”

Jake’s ice-blue eyes lit up. “Speaking of which, time to see my ladies. Catch you later at the restaurant?”

Jenny shook her head. She needed to be alone. “Sorry, got things to do.”

Jake squeezed her shoulder, then strode toward the family room.

Her smile faded as Tru remained standing beside her.

    1. Good morning! I would love to meet Stephen King. He writes such freaky stories, and I wonder if his true personality is a little on the freaky side as well

      (And I LOVE the idea of the sequential excerpts at each blog stop! Very unique and very clever!)

    2. Hi Lauren! I think Stephen King would be very interesting. I listened to the audiobook of his book On Writing (the first bit is autobiographical) and it was very interesting! I don't know that he's weird exactly, but then I'm an author to LOL!

      Isn't it fab?! The ladies at Goddess Fish came up with it for me!
