Cover Reveal organized by: RBTL World of Books Blog Tours

Blurb/Synopsis:

When I took a job as a bartender at Hanson’s to help pay for my classes, the last thing I expected to find was Kale Wilder. He’s sexy, smart, and he makes me smile and laugh faster than anyone ever has. More importantly, he makes me believe in Mr. Right. 

But Kale came to the wrong place at the wrong time, because someone else has his eyes on me. Someone who watches my every move.

Kale’s the only one I want, but the more I feel for him, the more I fear for my safety. Because the other guy is getting closer and doesn't want to share. He’s made it clear if he can’t have me, no one can.

~ Meet the Author: Elle Jordan! ~

Elle lives in the south, about an hour from the Happiest Place on Earth (aka Disney), drinks enough Mtn. Dew to keep the company in business, and has four lovable (read: evil and conniving) pets. She’s also the secret, evil alter-ego of another name. She’d tell you that other name, but then it wouldn’t be a secret.
When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found on Facebook, Twitter, or with Photoshop open, making covers for books she doesn’t have enough time to write.

~ Excerpt ~

"That's the key to ensuring all your kisses belong to me?" Kale asked. "Just being there?"

"There are a few other minor details, but yes, that's the main one."

"Damn. You are high maintenance, aren't you?"

I paced in front of the bar, grinning into the phone. "I'll remember that the next time I see you."

He chuckled. "So you home yet?"

"No. I'm standing out in front of the bar, looking for my kissing date again. I'd stopped, but you know... since I'm too high maintenance for you-"

"I knew you were trouble." I could picture him shaking his head at me. "Walk home. I'll stay on the phone until you do, then I gotta get off here. Rob - my friend - is about five minutes away from falling over unconscious." 

"If you need to go, it's okay," I said as I started across the street. It wasn't the same as having him walk or drive me home, but it was the next best thing.

"Trying to get rid of me now? Maybe I should find someone to kiss goodnight."

"Rob's around," I said, and then I laughed when I heard him sputter.

"Walked into that one, didn't I?"

"A little." 

I heard a crash, followed by Kale's muffled laugh. "My five minute estimate was about four minutes off."

"Get off the phone. I'm nearly across the street."

"Hey, who's the one walking you home? I make the rules."

"You're so bossy." I made it to my door and unlocked it. "I'm home. You can go kiss your boyfriend goodnight now."

He let out a low whistle. "That's cold, Ally. Cold. Remind me not to stand you up again."

"Gladly." I closed the door and locked it. "Seriously, Romeo, I'm safely tucked away in my apartment. I didn't' even bring home a date, so you can thank me for that later."

"I will. And I'll make it up to you, too."

"No need. None of them had on leather jackets. I think it might be a requirement now." I kicked off my shoes as I went to the bedroom. I paused, sniffed the air, then winced when all I could smell was cigarette smoke and beer. "Ugh."

"What?"

"I reek. I need to get these clothes off, they-"

Kale groaned. "Now you're just being mean. I'm hanging up before you start something we can't finish." 

I sat on the edge of my bed and pulled out my ponytail. Grinning, I said, "Oh, so you don't want to hear about me slowly peeling off my shirt-"

He muttered a curse and then the phone went dead in my ear. 

I fell back on the bed, laughing. When the phone rang again a minute later, I was nearly out of breath. "Yes, Kale?" 

"I only called back to say goodnight. Now I have. So goodnight. And dream well. Preferably of me, slowly peeling your shirt-"

I hung up.

  3. I love the cover - and I really like the sound of this one. It seems like there's some fun - judging by the excerpt - but the synopsis lends itself to a creep factor. Yay!
