Unexpectedly You

Okay, first… BIG THANK YOU to Jessica for letting me invade her blog today. And second, I’m a little hopped up on medicine so this post may be a bit rambly and nonsensical. (Hey! Word recognizes “nonsensical” as a word. I thought I was just making that up.)

If you haven’t heard of this book here: 

It came out on Monday (woohoo!) and me and the awesome Mia Josephs (or you may know her as Jolene Perry) are stoked! And Jess was cool and said, hey, let’s do a character casting for it. Or maybe I suggested that… I’m having a hard time remembering. Oh well, doesn’t matter, I have pretty pictures for you.

So, Nate Marks is this totally artsy fartsy, hot photographer dude who works at his momma’s wedding planner biz while he puts his broken heart back together. He’s laid back, has an “I don’t give a crap” attitude, but he’s still pretty freaking talented. Mia wrote him, so I let her cast his character. :) (And I say, what a fine choice it is.)

Brooke Winters is this high-strung, petite go-getter who plans out nearly every second of every day trying to prove to her parents that she can be successful on her own. She’s conscious of every stray strand of hair on her clothes, has different panties for every occasion, and her phone is glued to her hand. She’s absolutely adorable in her harried and anal attitude way. Rachel McAdams fit the bill.

These two sound polar opposite (and they are) but this is their sweet story of how some people fit together, even when it’s… (dun dun dun)… UNEXPECTED.
Oh, and here’s a rafflecopter doohickey thinger in case you want to win a signed copy of the book along with other goodies.

Effortless With You Book Blitz

Effortless With You
by Lizzy Charles
Release Date: 11/05/13
From Swoon Romance

Summary from Goodreads:
School is out and Lucy is ready for the perfect summer: lazy days at the pool, invitations to the most exclusive parties, and romantic dates with her hot new boyfriend. That is, until she lands in trouble one too many times and her parents issue the ultimate punishment: a summer job. Suddenly, the summer can't end fast enough.

To make matters worse, the job is painting houses with Justin, the most popular, egotistical guy in school. Spending all summer with Justin might be other girls' dreams, but definitely not Lucy's. After all, Justin is cocky, annoying, and a jerk. So what if he's the most beautiful jerk Lucy's ever seen? Or that his grin makes her forget she’s mad at the world? Or that maybe, just maybe, there's more to Justin than Lucy realizes. Only one thing is certain: it won’t be the summer she wanted, but it might be exactly the one she needs.

About the Author
When Lizzy Charles isn’t scrambling to raise her two spunky toddlers or caring for premature and sick babies as a neonatal intensive care nurse, she’s in a quiet corner writing or snuggled up with a novel and a few squares of dark chocolate. Black tea keeps her constant and she loves guacamole. She married her high school sweet heart, a heart-melting musician, so it’s no surprise she’s fallen in love with writing contemporary YA romance novels.
