blurb

Dear Jerk Across the Street, sorry for accidentally walking in on you and catching an eyeful of your—equipment. And hard pass on the open invitation to join you in the shower “anytime”, A-hole.

That’s the note I should’ve written. Instead I sent a pleasant and apologetic version.

Had I known Phoenix “Nix” Russo would’ve been the neighbor from hell, I’d have told him right where he could shove my words.

Nix is the big man on campus with everyone lined up at his games to make sure he knows it. Sure, he’s got piercing blue eyes, abs that don’t quit and a smile that could set fire to a set of panties from a hundred yards away, but he’s also the biggest pain in my ass.

Dear Pink-Haired Menace, learn how to take a joke and stop being such a kill-joy…
Elle Masterson called the cops on one of my parties—again. My sweet talking usually gets me out of trouble, but this time it got me into a nice pair of silver handcuffs. Now I’m on a reputation rehab tour with a stop at a spring break community service project.

Guess who’s my new boss?

Now we’re shoulder to shoulder, sweaty, tired and…she’s not anything like I expected. There might just be a heart under that hardass exterior. She’s invading my dreams and I can’t shake the feeling she’s the key to unlocking a piece of me that I’ve hidden away.

It’s only a matter of time until she finds out why I’m really here.

Maybe I can break through her walls and into her heart before that happens…one screw at a time.

abouttheauthor

Maya Hughes can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! 🙂 I’m a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.

I’m the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can’t breathe and traveling with my family.

mythoughts

A romantic and heartwarming story about love

3halfhearts (1)

Chasing Beverly by Ashlynn Cubbison is a fun, romantic, and heartwarming story about taking chances, moving on, and learning to love again.

This book didn’t completely make my heart melt with all the swoons, but some parts are wonderfully affecting and entertaining. I really liked the beginning chapter and was quite impressed that I found myself immediately intrigued. I expected plenty of drama and feels, and to be engrossed and really into the storyline. That didn’t really happen quite like I thought it would. There are many lighthearted, fun, and touching moments, and I even teared up a bit a few times, but for some reason, I just didn’t feel that enthusiastic about everything. At times, the dialogue felt a bit forced or just kind of awkward, a few things seemed rushed, and some parts just wasn’t that exciting. For me, the book just didn’t have enough appeal or that irresistible charm to completely pull me into the story.  But, even though this novel isn’t spectacular, I still enjoyed most of the story.  I loved the setting and being able to explore Portland, I adored the sweet moments, and I liked the characters enough to care about them.  I also liked that there’s a bit of humor, mystery, and a few surprises. All in all, this was a good read perfect for a lazy afternoon or a day at the beach.

I liked the romance and adored Gavin and Beverly as a couple. Gavin is sweet, kind, patient, and caring. I love how Gavin is willing to wait for Beverly and just be there for her. Beverly is guarded and not very trusting. She’s hurting in so many ways and I felt so much for her. Like Gavin, I wanted Beverly to realize that she deserves to have true happiness and another chance at love. I liked the way their relationship develops and enjoyed all their cute and emotional moments. I think they’re great together and I rooted so hard for them.

Ashlynn Cubbison has written a sweet and fun story about second chances, forgiveness, and love. I may not be over the moon in love with everthing in this novel, but I think Chasing Beverly’s overall plot is interesting, delightful, and enjoyable. I definitely recommend this book and I’m looking forward to see what happens next.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review and for participating in a blog tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I stare into Gavin Reed’s deep blue eyes, which appear unaffected by my attitude to his annoying questions. The donut from earlier churns in my belly.

This handsome, passive-aggressive prick knows about me. He knows about my past, and just like every other jerk, he’s baiting me. I shouldn’t be surprised he knows, but I expected him to be different.

Even so, dialing down the attitude right now is a smart decision. I’m the little company in this room, and he’s the one holding the power and my future. He can help me fulfill her dream and attain the redemption I’ve needed for so long. The redemption I need for Mom, Patrick, and myself.

Gavin pushes away from his desk, his chair scraping against the ugly concrete floor. He stalks toward me and positions himself in front of me, his six-foot, three-inch frame towering over me.

At first, I think he’s trying to intimidate me. I experience the primitive urge to kick him in his shins. I hesitate, though. His eyes are soft, and the tension in my shoulders loosens.

“Look, Miss Morgan, I’m very interested in working with your agency on this project. We’ve heard great things about your company, and we believe your business is the positive change to an industry that’s quickly cheapening itself. Our goal is to appeal and relate to women worldwide. We want more women watching the Olympics, more little girls dreaming about being a professional athlete, and our top priority is to get more girls and women active in sports. The long-term vision is for there to be demand and acceptance for professional women athletes making a living doing what they love and what they’re great at, the same as male athletes.

“I don’t know where this meeting went wrong. But I think it’s best if we take a look at the uniforms, costumes, whatever you want to call them, and then let’s regroup and meet for dinner tonight. It’ll give us both time to gather our thoughts and negotiate in a clear-headed manner.”

abouttheauthor

Ashlynn Cubbison is a goal-oriented, driven woman, who owns and operates four companies with her husband. They have two beautiful sons together, and although her life is chaotic, fun, full of love and never the same each day, somehow she finds room for writing as well.

Growing up Ashlynn struggled with reading. Then, in her sophomore year of high school, a small seed was planted. After acing a literary test, her teacher looked her square in the eye and said “you’ve been selling yourself short all year. I wonder what you could achieve with some effort.” After delving deeper into books, she discovered Pride and Prejudice, and has been an obsessive reader ever since.

Eventually her love of books translated into writing. She hopes to inspire others, especially children, to find their passion as she did.
