ARMS WIDE OPEN

posted in: Books | 1

armsLauren Brooks is in a rut, and her roomie is determined to yank her out of it by convincing her to participate in a local coffee shop’s 5-in-5 speed dating event. Once she agrees, it takes her about 30 seconds to realize if there’s an oddball out there looking for love, he’ll find her. And creep her out. She confronts one weirdo after another until someone she used to know winds up in the same place, and she has to decide what she wants more: to make a break for it, or embrace the possibilities of another chance.

“A tale with humor, depth, and a healthy dose of psychology took me by surprise.”

“This novella really took me somewhere unexpected. I loved the fact that the heroine wasn’t the usual fluffy bit of perfection but someone real who had suffered – and I also loved the humor. Different and so entertaining, what a good read.”

Author note: I hope they understand that it’s okay to move forward regardless of the awful hands life deals us, and it’s even better to do it with a sense of humor and a snarky comeback. Lauren is a unique character, one we don’t see often in romance. She’s smart and witty, an emotional wreck, strong and flawed. I hope looking at the world through her unique perspective will make my readers smile and feel hopeful.
