All You’ll Ever Need – Sneak Peek
Hi all! Since I’ve received a number of emails lately from readers asking what’s next for me. I decided I should check in. It’s been awhile.
Though I have a number of projects going on, in regards to my next book release, I’m working on ALL YOU’LL EVER NEED, book 2 of the Jenkins Family Series. I didn’t do an official cover reveal, but I have to say that I absolutely LOVE this book cover! It was created by Noelle at Selestiele Design, who I HIGHLY recommend for your next book cover or promotional items project! Her work is amazing and she has been great to work with! Isnt the cover gorgeous!
Though the blurb for ALL YOU’LL EVER NEED is not totally fleshed out, let me tell you a little about Jada Jenkins, also known as JJ. If you’ve read STILL THE BEST WOMAN FOR THE JOB, you already know Jada is … a trip! She has an ego the size of Texas; she says what’s on her mind; and she’s a sheet metal worker at Jenkins and Sons Construction – the family business- where she’s ready to quit her job and marry rich.
All I have to say is the man that finally lands Ms. Jada JJ Jenkins will have his hands full! Well, Zack Anderson is interested. Actually he’s more than interested, only Jada is not the woman he thinks she is.
***Hahahahaha I laugh in my most wicked voice, rubbing my hands together! I can’t wait until you guys get to read the whole story!***
In the meantime – here’s a sneak peek:
Jada nodded and then turned to Toni. “Okay, answer this, what do I have to do to get a man as fine as yours, one who worships the ground I walk on, but someone who is crazy wealthy?” She rolled her neck and slapped her hand down on the table. “I’m talkin’ stinkin’ rich as in lunch on the French Riviera and dinner at La Vague d’Or in Saint Tropez.”
Toni shook her head, and a wide grin tilted the corners of her rose-colored lips. “I know suggesting that you lower your standard is out of the question. So I won’t bother. I will say though, when the right man comes along, it’s not going to matter if he’s downright fine and stinkin’ rich. All that’s going to matter, or should matter is that he treats you right and loves you unconditionally.”
“Uh, well, yeah, it is going to matter if he’s fine and rich because if he isn’t he won’t be able to hang with me.” Jada ignored the way Toni’s perfectly arched eyebrows slanted in a frown. “Now what’s the scoop on the hunks that just walked up to your new hubby? The one on the far right looks as if he could carry a small car on his back.”
“Those are the guys he grew up with. Actually, today might be your lucky day.” Toni perked up, a mischievous glint shined in her eyes as she adjusted the hem of her beaded lace wedding gown. “Craig’s bringing Zack over.”
“How does that make it my lucky day?”
“Because he’s single and he’s gawking at you.”
Jada sized him up as he approached. At least six-one, broad shoulders that tapered down to a narrow waist, dark, spiked hair, and a powerful stride – he was a walking billboard for everything masculine. “Mmm, I don’t think so. He’s definitely a cutie in that Channing Tatum kind of way. But I like my men like I like my chocolate – dark and exceedingly rich.”
“Is that right?” Toni placed her soda on the table and sat forward in her chair, her elbow on the table and amusement danced in her eyes. “Well, did I happen to mention that he’s a professional football player who plays for the Cincinnati Cougars and has just renewed his contract for nine-point-five-million?”
Jada’s mouth dropped wide open.
“Oh, and that’s only for one year.”
“Damn!” Jada smoothed down the front of her bridesmaid dress that stopped just above her knees and ran her fingers through her long auburn streaked curls. She quickly pulled a tube of lipstick from her strapless bra and ran the Coral Berry over her lips, and then took another glance at Craig’s friend. “It’s a good thing I’m switching over. I hear white chocolate, like milk, does a body good.”
“What?” Toni narrowed her eyes. “I’ve never heard that before.”
“Oh, hush up and tell me if I have any food in my teeth.”
Toni shook her head and laughed. “Girl, you’re a mess!”
“Hey, baby, are you feeling better?” Craig bent slightly and brushed Toni’s bangs away from her forehead. “Did the soda help?” He extended his hand to help her to her feet and rubbed his large palm over her barely-there baby bump.
“Between the soda and the crackers you hunted down for me earlier, I’m feeling much better. You take such good care of me,” Toni said in a baby-like voice.
“That’s my job. I plan to spend the rest of my life taking very good care of you, Mrs. Logan.” Craig lowered his head and his lips brushed against Toni’s.
Jada rolled her eyes when the newlywed’s lip-lock grew more intense and Toni’s arms snaked around her husband’s neck.
“You guys have a lifetime to play kissy-face.” She turned her gaze to the man standing next to her cousin-in-law and had to admit he was even sexier up close, and then he smiled. Oh my God he has dimples. Her knees weakened and the once steady beat of her heart now pounded double-time. Her hand hovered over her chest as she struggled to fill her lungs with air. Okay, just breathe. She told herself over and over again.
“Are you all right?” the sexy gift from God asked, his hand at the small of her back sent a spark of desire shooting through her veins. “Can I get you something to drink?”
“Uh, no. No, I’m fine.” She definitely had to pull herself together. Never has a man seen her sweat and she sure as hell wasn’t going to let a cutie with a nine-point-five-million dollar contract see her off her game.
“Obviously we’re invisible,” Craig’s friend said and removed his hand from her back. His voice intoxicatingly deep sent an exciting shiver up her spine. “I’m Zack Anderson.”
