Exclusive Excerpt + Signed Giveaway: Playing It Safe by Barbie Bohrman

playing it

I’m so excited to feature author Barbie Bohrman and her latest contemporary romance release, Playing It Safe, about two people trying to find their happy ever after, despite the past, despite their fears and insecurities. Read the excerpt below to get a glimpse into this fun and sexy novel.

Synopsis

playing it safe coverJulia Boyd has dated more than her share of jerks, and she’s done even pretending to like them. Putting her dating life on hold and focusing on her event planning career is a much safer bet for the blue-eyed blonde…until she meets her newest client.

Organizing the opening for an art gallery should be a breeze for Julia, but gallery owner Alex Holt is becoming very distracting. Tall and muscular with enough charisma and sexy dimples to make Julia swoon, Alex could be the perfect man. The two of them click immediately, creating enough witty banter to ignite sparks.

But just before flames of passion can erupt with Alex, Julia begins planning an engagement party…and learns the groom is Aiden, the man who broke her heart years ago. When Aiden admits that he still has feelings for Julia, everything changes. Should she seek shelter in the familiarity of the past, or should she risk everything on a brand-new love?

Excerpt

“As I was saying . . . your ground rules.” He places his hands on my shoulders and then runs them down my arms. “I’m of the opinion that they’re a waste of our time at this point because there are far too many things I want to do to you. And after last night, there is no fucking way that I can stand to be away from you for one more moment.”

Alex takes my hands in his and raises them until my palms are resting on the door slightly above my head. When he lets go, he swipes my hair to the side and holds it in place with one hand while the other skims down the side of my body and eventually stops at my hip. He leans in closer so that his lips graze my ear, and I close my eyes, relishing the contact.

His breath is warm and his voice gravelly when he finally speaks. “Do you want me to stop?”

“I . . .”

“Julia,” he says seductively while his hand trails lower, sending shivers down my spine. He grabs a fistful of my skirt. “It’s an easy question.” He pauses and kisses me below my earlobe. “Yes . . .” Another kiss, this time on my neck. “Or no.” He punctuates the no with a thrust against my ass.

I don’t think I’ve ever been this aroused in my life. He hasn’t technically done one thing to me, yet I’m in his control. Under his thumb. Damn the Rolling Stones and finally figuring out what the hell that song is really about. Christ, why am I thinking about a freaking song that is probably more than twice as old as I am when I’m about to get nailed by Alex? Focus, Julia!

“No,” I murmur in between ragged breaths that are now coming in a rush. Come on, did you really think I’d be able to hold up much longer? Me neither.

About Barbie

barbie bohrmanBarbie Bohrman was born and raised in Miami, FL and ultimately moved to the Garden State where she currently resides with her husband and two children. Life, and all that comes along with it and having long since given up on her dream of pursuing anything in the writing world, a prologue contest in a book club garnered her interest enough to throw her hat in the ring to see what, if anything, would come from it. From that contest came the roots of her debut novel, Promise Me. When she is not writing you can find her trying to get through the 1000+ books on her Kindle, or watching Lost or Seinfeld.
