Blog Tour – In Case You Didn’t Know by Samantha Chase — Review & Excerpt

Blog Tour – In Case You Didn’t Know by Samantha Chase — Review & Excerpt

It’s time to go back to Magnolia Sound! IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW by Samantha Chase is out now – lovers of small town romance won’t want to miss this one!

While each book in the Magnolia Sound series can be read as a standalone, I feel very strongly that these books should be read in order to appreciate the attention to detail Samantha takes with her books. There is something magical when previous characters find their way into a current release.

Mason Bishop is tired of his parents schemes and deception and when he does the unexpected, it throws everyone off.

Scarlett Jones is fiesty, a mechanic, and totally into the one man she shouldn’t be. When their paths cross it’s a fabulous meet-cute and then Samantha does what she does best, shazam. We discover there are secrets in this small town and pops isn’t there to corroborate or defend his reasons.

Two people from different parts of  town will discover that blood is thick, but friendships and love sometimes outwin biology. If they can accept their differences and the choices those around them have made, they might have a chance to discover a real love. One that others dream of.

It is EVERYTHING. I laughed, I cried, and now wish I could actually visit Magnolia Sound. Instead I’ll pour a glass of whiskey, my comfy blanket and write my review. Maybe I’ll hug my family a little tighter because everyone needs a hug right?

Ya’ll this book is why I love reading romance…just when I think it can’t tug anymore at my heart…it does.

This series has a special place in my heart and hopefully you will soon!

35k word Novella (part 1 in the series) 

Welcome to SMUT UNIVERSITY! 

The Art of Sex… In Writing. 
The name alone would have made it the most sought-after writing course at Columbia, but it didn’t hurt that the professor was smoking hot!
Addison Tomms was an aspiring romance novelist and senior Creative Writing Major at the prestigious Ivy League university.  The class was packed and judging by the tongues wagging and the obvious swooning by the male and female student body alike, she figured she was one, in maybe a hundred, serious writing students in the auditorium. 
Addy knew Dr. Jackson Michaels was a New York Times bestseller many times over, and secretly, she devoured his books. His love scenes set the pages, and her body, on fire.  It was no secret that the associate professor teaching the course was sexy… but was he as really as sexy as his words?
Addison had her answer on the very first day of class when the handsome Dr. Michaels taunted and teased his students with what the class actually entailed; all watching with mouths agape. He was a thousand percent more stunning in person than the television entertainment interviews she’d seen or any of the photos that she and her best friend, Michelle, had spent hours searching online.
Something stirred deep inside her when his sensual eyes raked over her because she’d been the only one brave enough to answer his first question.  Her reaction was physical; his gaze felt as if he’d actually touched her, and she was more and more intrigued.
Addy knew this man would rock her world… but it wouldn’t just be between the pages. 

SMUT UNIVERSITY (Part One) Excerpt
His eyes locked with mine.  “Miss Tomms,” he said my name without asking who I was. A shiver ran through me that he remembered; like it foreshadowed some earth-shattering scene about to come.  Those intense eyes framed by incredibly dark lashes.  The strong jaw. The broad, muscular shoulders.  God, that face.  That f*cking sex hair.  Up close it was criminal how incredibly sexy he was. He was utterly stunning.
My breath left me in a soft rush, and I sucked in another so I could speak.  “Dr. Michaels,” I acknowledged with a small nod.
He had a file box in front of him that held the graded papers separated alphabetically by dividers.  He reached in and slowly pulled mine out.  Maybe this weird tradition he had of insisting the first assignment was printed out was his way to bring his students face-to face in order to press upon us just how intimidating he actually was.  And, he was.
There was admiration in his eyes as they roamed over my face and hair, lingering on my mouth.  I couldn’t help looking at his.  His lips were as perfect as the rest of him, the lower one full and begging to be bitten.  I cleared my throat.  I felt like helpless prey; paralyzed by a mixture of fear and adulation; the venom of his incredible eyes and his scent.  Whether it was his will to eat me alive or seduce me, it was certain that I would succumb to either in that moment. My heart thrummed inside my chest, blood rushing in my ears, wetness pooling between my legs.  Oh, God, my legs went weak and I struggled to stand.
His long fingers bent the stack of stapled paper so that the grade was hidden from view when he held it out to me. I held the book bag to me with one arm and reached for the document with the other hand.
He pulled it back for a second, denying it to me, his brilliant eyes still burning, but now teasing into mine.  I cocked one eyebrow in question and a hint of a smile graced his luscious mouth.  “I’d like to see you in my office, tomorrow. I have office hours from four to six.  Does that work?”
My mind was racing; wondering at the reason behind his request at the same time as my heart fell into the pit of my stomach.  Did I totally screw up the assignment?  I felt like I was about to throw up and wished the earth would open up and swallow me.
He cleared his throat.  “Miss Tomms?  Does that work for you?”
“Ummm,” I stammered. “Yes, professor.  See you then.”
“Excellent.”  He handed me the paper, his eyes still not breaking contact.  I felt like I was falling into the deepest end of the ocean, drowning and only he could save me. I was in trouble.
“Yes, sir.”
My heart felt as if it would fly from my aching chest as I took the paper and turned, concentrating on walking without rushing to the far left of the room, taking the side stairs up to the marble lobby and then walking out of the building.  I wanted to look at the grade as I clutched the still folded assignment in my hand, but something inside me hesitated.  My heart felt like it would explode as I opened the folded pages and then, in astonishment flipped through the rest.  There was no grade.  No editorial mark-ups.  Nothing.
“What the f*ck?” I exclaimed.

Portrait of a handsome young man. Men’s beauty, fashion. Hairstyle.

Excerpt:

“Smooth,”I say with a shake of my head. He no doubt compliments every woman he meets. “But overused.” I put out my palm. “Hand over your phone. I’ll take the picture.”

He looks like he’s ready to yank the sling off his arm and throw it across the parking lot, but instead he gives in to my request. I put the card down on the hood of my car and snap the photo. After checking to make sure it’s a clear shot, I say, “Would you mind letting me know the cost of fixing your car before we go through insurance companies? I may pay out of pocket.”I hate the idea of depleting my savings account, but it might be the better option in the long run.

“Sure.” His fingers brush mine when I give him his phone back, and a surge of heat charges up my arm. Our eyes lock. Hold. “I should also get your digits then—” he glances down at the photo “—Chloe Conrad.”

His saying my name shouldn’t make me weak in the knees, but it does. We’re no longer strangers, not that he’ll remember me or give me any thought beyond fixing his car.

I snag the phone back and type in my number. Then I call myself. My phone rings from the car. “Now I’ve got your number, too.” I never answer my phone if I don’t know who’s calling.

“Would you like a name to go along with it?”

“That’s okay.” I hand back the phone.

His blue eyes dance. “You already know it.”

“Why would I know it? Are you famous or something?” I turn to go before he can see the truth on my face. “I’ll wait to hear from you and uh, sorry about hitting you. I don’t think I said that.”

“No worries.”

I wish. Life isn’t exactly going to plan at the moment. At least my next job assignment should be easy. My boss said it was a perfect fit and I’d get the details on Monday.

“Oh, and Chloe?”

I pause before sliding into my car and look at Finn.

“Nice try.” He tips his head toward my front bumper and winks. Actually winks! Normally I find winking cheesy, but not when Finn does it. His wink is like a calling card for let’s get naked and run our hands and mouths all over each other.

Then it hits me. My license plate frame. It says Baseball…The Perfect Game. S%^t. Can’t a girl catch a single break?

“See you around, Webster.”

No, he won’t. Not if I can help it.
