If I Loved You - Teaser Tuesday

If I Loved You (Hollywood Hearts 1)

I recently read IF I LOVED YOU by Jean C. Joachim, and what a fun, sexy story it was! I loved the characters, and Jean's writing style kept me entertained from start to finish. This is the first book in her Hollywood Hearts series, and I'm looking forward to reading all the rest.

NEWS FLASH: Jean has graciously offered to give away two free books! For a chance to win, just leave a comment below, along with your email address so we can contact you if you're a winner.


Here's my TEASER - a little internal dialogue from Megan, the main character, during a business dinner with drop-dead-gorgeous movie star Chaz:
Focus. Stop drooling. Remember, he puts his pants on one leg at a time just like everyone else. Stop thinking about his pants!
(at 7% on my Kindle)

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis from the Secret Cravings Publishing website:

Does love always mean total truth? Successfully shunning the limelight was one way for Megan Davis to keep her family secret. The press intruded on her life when her twin brother, Mark, became the star quarterback for the Delaware Demons. A smart, successful financial advisor, disrespectful of tabloid superstars, Meg was shocked when she was selected to launch a celebrity division in the prestigious investment firm, Dillon & Weed, and overwhelmed by the charisma of her first client.

Gorgeous, magnetic movie star, Chaz Duncan, wary of women who wanted to bask in his fame or sell his secrets to the media, valued privacy above all else. Would attractive Megan Davis, his new financial advisor charm the truth from him or would he continue his high profile but lonely existence to keep his secret safe? Jealousy, deceit and scandal threaten two careers and the quest for true love and trust in this roller-coaster-ride contemporary romance.
