The book I’m highlighting for the hop is my new release BEER AND GROPING IN LAS VEGAS, a quick little read at 42 pages. It’s an erotic geek romantic comedy with a touch of paranormal. Wanna know more?

Official Blurb

Can a djinn and a magic slot machine bring two geeks together?

Riley McGregor is a geek trapped in a Good Ole Boy body and as owner of a microbrewery, smart chicks never look at him twice.

Rejected by a geek who wanted to “trade up,” Mirjam Linna would rather immerse herself in work than be the girlfriend-of-the-moment. Stranded in a Vegas hotel, she makes a wish—a night of hot sex with the man of her dreams. It’s granted. She agrees to dinner, but afterward, she’ll say thanks, but no thanks, and see what’s on the SyFy channel. But when they meet, they’re surprised to find they had a shared connection in their past. Sparks fly as these two learn to be in the moment, be themselves and find love.

Fans of Star Trek, Star Wars, Monty Python, Firefly and Marvin the Martian will enjoy this romantic comedy.

Early Buzz and Reviews!

“It really is just truly a fun read. It’s written really well. It’s short, but the author gives you snippets about these characters so you feel like you really know them and can connect to them.” —Smitten With Reading

“Ok so this book is sooo fun. It is a quick 46 page ecopy book but it is filled with sarcasm, wit, sexiness and a lot of humor…The sexual tension in the story is great. I was laughing in the beginning and then saying “Hawt” towards the middle. When they finally *cough cough* well you know, it was gooood reading” – Angie J, Twinsie Talk Book Reviews

And on Jan 3, the book trailer was reviewed/featured in Robin Covington’s USAToday’s HEA column!

  17. I read this as I scrolled down for SSS and did a double take, thinking we were neighbors. So I went to your “about” and discovered we aren’t neighbors, then I read the entire post. D’oh! Methinks scanning for SSS after midnight is not a good idea, LOL!
