THE PLAN by Katie Ashley - Blog Tour






**NEW RELEASE** - THE PLAN by Katie Ashley - Now LIVE!

BLURB: 

For Jenny O’Malley, the plan was supposed to be easy. Become the surrogate for her friends, Connor and Jeff, deliver their healthy baby, and earn some money towards her student loans. But as the saying goes, the best-laid plans often go awry. Especially when you’re looking at the prospect of not getting laid for a long, long time.

With T-Minus two weeks to insemination, Jenny decides to take her friend, Casey’s, suggestion to have one wild fling before she’s saddled with heartburn and stretchmarks. When a tall, dark and handsome man swaggers into the bar where she works in skin-tight jeans, cowboy boots, and a Stetson, Jenny knows he is the one. After a scorching night of banging boots until dawn, Jenny is a little sad to see her Cowboy in Shining Armor leave.

When he reenters her life a few weeks later, she never could have imagined a positive sign could be such a negative.







EXCERPT

As she was cleaning up in the wake of a rowdy group of frat boys from Georgia Tech, Jenny caught sight of a cowboy hat out of the corner of her eye. Immediately, she drew in a sharp breath and swept a hand to her chest to try to still the erratic beating of her heart. Turning around, she peered in the direction of the white Stetson.

Sweet Jesus, he was backthe hot-as-hell cowboy from out of town. It had been two or three weeks since hed first strutted into the bar an hour before closing time. In his tight jeans, hed left little to the imagination about what kind of weaponry he was packing.

At first, shed thought he was lost. After all, he had looked so completely out of placea ride em cowboy right out of the Wild West, smack in the urban jungle of Atlanta. Ignoring the stares from some of the other patronsand from Jennyhe had slid across one of the bar stools. Sweeping his hat from his head, hed then held up his hand, signaling her to come over.

A shot of Jack,hed requested. Holy hell, his voice. It had sent a shot of white-hot lust straight to her core. There was something particular about a mans voice that got her libido up and running, and the deeper the better. It was why she had a hard time watching Harry Potter without having impure thoughts about Alan Rickman, AKA Snape.

While she fixed the drink, Jenny could feel the cowboys eyes on her. The heat of his gaze bore through her white blouse and warmed the skin above her breasts. It wasnt like she wasnt used to male customers staring at her boobs. She had learned from her older sister, Laura, to use her C cups to her advantage with tight shirts and low-buttoned blouses. Most of the time, the leers of horny men grated on her nerves, but not that night. Shed wanted the cowboys eyes on her. If shed been honest, she wanted his hands and his tongue on her too.

When shed placed the drink in front of him, she smiled. There you go. My name is Jenny if you need anything else.

Can I ask you a question?

I guess,Jenny had replied hesitantly.

How in the hell do you live down here with all the crazy drivers?

She hadnt been able to help laughing because the question wasnt what shed been expecting. I guess since Ive lived here all my life, Im used to it.

The cowboy had grimaced. You have my sympathies.

Hey now, I happen to like this city,shed protested.

You can have it.

And just like that, theyd struck up a conversation. Since it had been almost closing, theyd had time to get to know each other. His name was Brett, and he was a professional roper passing through Atlanta on his way back home from a roping championship in South Georgia. Jenny really had no idea what professional roping entailed, but her dirty mind had decided to draw the obscene conclusion that he was really good with his hands. He could tie her upyou know, if she ever decided to swing that way.

When hed found out she loved horses but rarely got to see any in the city, hed taken her by the hand and led her outside. Although a voice inside her head screamed that he could be about to abduct her, shed kept letting him lead her across the parking lot. Shed liked the way his calloused hands felt against her skin, and a relieved sigh had escaped her lips when they stopped in front of a horse trailer. Opening the back, he had introduced her to his two horses, Waylon and Willie. She had tried not to swoon at the gesture.

After theyd gotten back inside, Brett had insisted on buying her a drink, even when she told him she could have one on the house. One drink had turned into two, and when shed gotten a little tipsy, shed been really thankful her dad was in the back to run the evenings receipts. Even after shed turned off the open sign and locked the front door, Bretts perfectly sculpted ass had remained on the bar stool. She hadnt felt a connection with anyone in such a long time, and it wasnt just about the physical.

Damn, she had wanted him to kiss her that night, and for a moment, shed thought he would. Instead, hed slipped his cowboy hat back on. You take care,he had said.

You too,she had replied as she watched him walk out of the bar and out of her life. She had experienced a sinking feeling that something potentially amazing had just slipped through her fingers. Shed never in a million years dreamed hed walk back through the doors, but there he was in all his beautiful flesh.

Excerpt

 
Robert - Chapter One
It was in a small room in a villa in Tuscany that my life changed forever–again.
Everything I knew, or believed, had been a lie. Just over Forty years of thinking one man was my father, and that he had been killed with my mother, was disproved with a simple DNA test. I barely remembered him; I hardly remembered my mother. Just a week after discovering the letters, I’d found the man who would protect my wife, who was the love of Evelyn’s life, was also my biological father. To say my head had been fucked up was an understatement.
****
“Do you want to talk?” I heard. I had been sitting on the edge of the fountain in the courtyard of the villa.
I looked up to see Brooke walking toward me. I patted the wall.
“Sit with me,” I said.
She picked up my hand and threaded her fingers through mine as she did. I stared at her for a moment. Her blue eyes were ringed, faintly, with dark circles and laugh lines fanned out across her skin. She looked tired and I guessed my overactive brain working day and night had been the cause of that.
“How do you feel today?” she asked gently.
I sighed and closed my eyes; I raised my face to catch the last of the day’s sun before I spoke.
“Better. One minute I have no biological family; the next, I have a father, a half brother and a half sister. It’s been a little difficult to process all that,” I confessed.
“No shit,” she replied, with a chuckle.
I turned to look at her. I shifted my body until I was facing her and traced my fingers down her cheek.
“I’ve been a complete prick this past week, haven’t I?”
She tried to hide the smirk. “I know of Mr. Angry, Mr. Playful, Mr. Sarcastic, and all the other misters that make up Robert Stone, but I’m a little unsure who’s with us right now.”
“Mr. Honest?” I offered.
“Ah, it could be. Therefore the answer would be, yes, you have been a complete prick this week. But with good reason, Robert,” she said.
I laughed quietly.
“Have you spoken to him today?”
Initially, after I’d discovered Rocco was my father, we’d talked, he’d cried, but then sadness settled over me. Forty years of memories were shattered on the opening of an envelope that contained evidence and I struggled with it. I’d endured years of abuse at the hands of my aunt, yet I had a father who could have rescued me from her. It was an unrealistic thought, of course, he didn’t know about me, but it bothered me.

Cary Hart hails from the Midwest. A sassy, coffee drinking, sometimes sailor swearing (Shhh… don’t tell.), wine sipping, Spotify addict, lover of all things books!

When not pushing women down the stairs in the fictional world, Cary has her hands full. She is blessed to be the sports mom of two wild and crazy, spoiled kiddos, and wife to the most supportive husband (took a few years to train). In addition to working full time, she bakes cookies on the side to fund her newly found love of writing and to keep her Sephora VIB Rouge status. The addiction is real, folks!

Believe it or not, writing was never a dream for Cary. Reading was something she never enjoyed growing up. All it took was one friend, who went MIA for a weekend on a book binge, to share her passion and loan an ebook, lighting a fire inside her.  Two years, and hundreds of ebooks later, she connected with one of her favorite authors, who patiently listened to her plot ideas. Her encouragement and saying those three little words “You write it!” changed everything!

So, welcome! Hop on board, and enjoy the ride!

Genre: Romance
Release Date: April 20, 2018



Blurb

People, in my opinion, don’t take happiness seriously enough.
They go through life, constantly trying to please other people.
I do, however, take my happiness seriously.
Very seriously.
But, when things in my life, go suddenly south, I am left with more than one choice.
Do what’s right, or do what’s wrong?
That, on any normal day, would be an easy choice for me.
I’ll do whatever I need to keep my life flowing with happiness.
But when it comes to love, everything changes.
And him.
I love him.
Which means I have to correct my wrong doings.
I need him to forgive me.
I need money.
It’s the only way.
When a job for a live-in maid comes up, with excellent pay, I jump at the chance.
When I realize it’s for the member of a Motorcycle Club, I still don’t back down.
Even if it means I have to live with and work for, one of the hottest, broodiest and most difficult men I’ve ever met.
I’ll do whatever it takes.
Only, I don’t expect to actually like him.
The mysterious biker.
The one who I seem drawn to.
And now I have a real problem.
Do what’s right, or let my heart take me where it wishes?
Two men. Once choice.
Things are about to get very, very complicated.
