Excerpt : Jett's POV

I cross to the area that Jett has claimed for his garden. He appears to be in the zone as he works, oblivious to everything.

"Good morning," I call.

Jett throws dirt in the air and screams like Em.

"Good grief! You scared me to death, Rye!" he exclaims, turning.

I try to apologize but am laughing so hard, my ribs start hurting. I sit down. When his surprise wears off, Jett laughs as well. It takes me a few minutes to recover.

"So, tell me, Jett," I say when I’m able to breathe and speak again, "what is the importance of a garden?"

"It’s the healthy way to live," is all he says.

"Hmmmm," I reply. There’s got to be more. Any other day, I’d probably ask him more questions. But right now, I’m completely captivated by his work – and his body. He’s always in a t-shirt. Sweat makes it cling to his upper body, outlining the muscles of his wide back.

Tracing the definition of each muscle would take me all day, but I would definitely accept the job. He’s the sexiest man I’ve ever seen, and the kindest. He’s pretty much perfect.

"You wanna help me, or just stare at my ass all day?" he asks, twisting to see me.

So, this is going to be a mini-review, because I am 70% into the story. My Kindle had some problems, therefore I had a slight delay in finishing the book.

I love D.Love's book. The story is emotional and romantic and raw!!! There was a scene I was reading while on my way to work, and dear Lord, I teared. And then another scene, I melted on my seat. It's a great book. D. Love did a great job writing such a realistic story.

I will finish this tonight, and put up my review tomorrow, or as soon as I finish. 

Please bear with me.

Author Bio

I live in Maine. My biggest passion is for my family and friends. I adore loving others as if it is the biggest gift life can offer. I'm a read-a-holic, loves chocolate, cowboys and everyone on Young Adult & Teen Readers Facebook page. My dream is to travel to Australia one day and see a kangaroo. I am nothing but simple. I do a lot of volunteer work. I have 2 beautiful daughters. 4 grandchildren, that constantly ask me if I lived in the black & white days.

My inspiration would be my daughters. Rita for her strength to keep fighting and constantly trying to take care of me, even though sometimes she can’t get out of bed & Kayla, for helping to pick up all the pieces that seem to fall when times get rough, and the love they have for me.

What's up Wednesday (2)

Today is my second What's Up Wednesday, a weekly meme started by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk. If you'd like to join this fun meme, please head over to Jaime's blog to sign in the linky list. :)   

What I'm reading:

I'm currently reading: The Rules of Disappearing by Ashley Elston. I'm 26% in and I LOVE it! :) as well as Today Only by D.Love. Such a great story.

What I'm writing:

I did revisions for my NA/Adult crossover, but didn't manage to add wordcount on my YA. I hope to work on that this coming weeked.

I was really ambitious last week with my estimated 7000 word count for Read.Set. Write. So this week my goal until next Wednesday is at least 4000 words. *crossing fingers*

What inspires me right now?

Finally, it's sunny - about 36 degrees today - here in Vienna. No one is going crazy and irritated anymore..LOL The last three weeks were horrible. Lots of rain, which caused flooding outside Vienna. So uninspiring. So, yay! to awesome weather. I'm completely inspired, although half the time I'm on my desk with packs of ice on my head to cool me down. It's still something. :)

What else I've been up to:

Actually, not much. My Kiddies close school next week so I'll definitely have something to do. Can't wait though. Working full time sometimes doesn't give us enough time to enjoy each other's company. 

What are you currently reading/writing? What inspires you and what else have you beeen up to? Would love to hear from you! :)
