Meet Lisa Brown Roberts!

 

Lisa Brown Roberts has held a variety of day jobs to support her writing habit, many of them involving writing, but not the fun kind. She currently works in higher education during the day and writes feverishly at 3:00 in the morning, on weekends, and any other time she can convince her family to go play outside and leave her alone. Except for the cats. They can stay, because every writer needs a cat (or two) on her lap. You can find Lisa on Twitter @LBrownRoberts or visit her at her website www.lisabrownroberts.com

Meet The Bookworm Crush!


This spinoff of The Replacement Crush featuring Amy and Toff is sure to melt your heart.

Shy bookworm Amy McIntyre is about to compete for the chance to interview her favorite author, who hasn't spoken to the press in years. The only way to win is to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight, but that level of confidence has never come easy.

The solution? A competition coach. The problem? The best person for the job is the guy she's secretly crushing on…local surfer celebrity Toff Nichols.

He’s a player. He’s a heartthrob. He makes her forget basic things, like how to breathe. How can she feel any confidence around him?

To her surprise, Toff agrees to help. And he’s an excellent teacher. Amy feels braver—maybe even brave enough to admit her feelings for him. When their late night practices become less about coaching and more about making out, Amy’s newfound confidence wavers.

But does Toff really like her or is this just another lesson?

“Ready to bookface?”

At the sound of Toff’s voice, Amy yelped and jumped, dropping her stack of books. Toff grinned as he stepped closer, his dimples and sky-blue eyes freezing her in place.

“Chill, Ames. It’s just me.” He squatted down to grab the books, a whiff of his soap filling her nose. Like a junkie, she inhaled deeply.

Stop it, she scolded herself.

He stood and handed her the stack of books.

“You’re late,” she said, instead of thank you, hoping to prevent herself from being sucked into his flirty whirlpool.

Toff chuckled and glanced at the Redhead Recs bookshelf. His eyes widened. “Whoa. You have your own shelf? Impressive.” He picked up one of her handwritten shelf talker cards, and her stomach clenched with panic. “‘All the feels,’” he read aloud. “‘Superhot alpha hero who’s not an alphahole!’”

Amy prayed to Saint Jane Austen for an invisibility cloak or an instant coma. Wake me up ten years from now, she begged Saint Jane, or beam Toff to the other side of the planet.

Unfortunately, Saint Jane was off duty.

Slowly, Toff turned to face her, lips smashed together. Amy tensed like she was standing next to a volcano, just waiting for it to explode—with laughter.

“What’s an alpha hero?”

“Navy SEALs,” she said, tossing her hair over her shoulder in a feeble attempt at swagger. “Fighter pilots. Spies like James Bond.”

“Got it.” Toff leaned against the bookshelf, smirking down at her. “Kickass dudes like me.”

“N-No. You’re not…like that.” He wasn’t a superhero alpha like Thor wielding a hammer. Maybe he pulled off unbelievable surfing maneuvers that made his fans go crazy. And maybe he had sponsors knocking down his door encouraging him to go pro. That didn’t make him…

Okay, it made him a low-key alpha.

Toff grinned like he’d read her mind. “So what’s an alphahole?”

“The worst kind of guy. Controlling. Using his hotness for evil.”

“Evil?”

“Never mind.” She pointed to her recs shelf. “This guy’s an old-school alpha hero.”

Toff grabbed the Regency romance off the shelf. “He’s wearing a top hat. And a weird scarf. What’s that gold stuff on his boots?” He glanced up, lips quirking. “I don’t think a real alpha hero would dress like this.”

I read the synopsis, and this book sounds great! I have to read anything where the main character says a prayer to Saint Jane Austen. That's perfect. And totally something I would do. And how cute is that cover? Love it!
