Cover Reveal: Blocked by Jennifer Lane

COVER REVEAL

BLOCKED

By Jennifer Lane


New Adult Contemporary/Sports Romance

Releasing October 21, 2014

College freshman Lucia Ramirez has a secret crush on Dane Monroe. He’s a tall drink of water — blond, brash, and one hell of a volleyball player. Hijole. Lucia hopes her volleyball scholarship to his school will make him notice her.

Too bad what’s noticeable is Dane’s obvious hatred for Lucia. Her family’s politics contradict everything he stands for. And politics are front and center in both their families. Dane’s mother is about to face Lucia’s father in the race for US President.

When Secret Service throws them together, Dane can’t deny his frustrating attraction to Lucia’s athletic curves and sweet faith in the world. Amid the intense pressure of college athletics and presidential politics, can opposites not just attract, but overcome overwhelming odds to be together? Or do their differences block their match from the start?

Ultimately, whether writing or reading, Jen loves stories that make her laugh and cry.

Book Addict's Cry For Help aka Another Book Haul!



Hello, my friends! Long time no post!

I'm still around. I've just been vlogging, instead of blogging. Figured it would be a good think to integrate the two, so I'll be doing my best to post my weekly vlogs here for you all to see!

Hope you enjoy!

Introducing the Diamond Girls (Cast of characters from Ex Factor)



Hey, peeps! Happy Friday!

I thought it would be fun to introduce you to the main players in my Diamond Girl series. They're a fun group of girls who I've come to adore.

Without further ado, I give you my Diamond Girls:


Nev is the female lead in Ex Factor (book #1), and has a pretty hairy past for being only sixteen. She's suffered a tremendous amount of loss, but still manages to get up every day and keep on keeping on. She's a level-10 gymnast and the newest member of X-Factor's elite level-five Diamond Girl team.



Olivia "Livvie" Brown is Nev's cousin and a veteran Diamond Girl. Livvie and her mom took Nev in after tragedy befell her and are an amazing source of love and support. Livvie's a beauty blogger on Youtube and is the female lead in Unbreakable (book #2).




Erin Matthews is the first girl at Grant High to befriend Nev after she transfers in. She's sweet, popular, and pretty, and an expert base on the Diamond Girl team. For all her amazing qualities, Erin is a bit naive, and falls for the school's resident hottie manwhore, Eli Walker. Trouble ensues.




Claire Reilly is a lifer down at the X-Factor gym. Full of spunk and sass, she's center flyer on the Diamond Girl team, and the female lead in Defenseless (book #3). Claire's not afraid to speak her mind, which, at times, can get her into trouble. Oh, and she's got a weakness for guys with accents.




Tayla Rose is another X-Factor lifer. She's Claire's BFF, and a base on X-Factor's level-2 Sapphire team. Tayla towers over her friends at a whopping five-foot-ten, and has a beautiful head of fiery red hair, and a lovely spattering of freckles. Of the five girls, Tayla is the quietest.


Ex Factor just released with Swoon Romance and is available for $2.99 on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

My book released early!! Woot!



Hey friends!!

I'm literally shaking with excitement as I type this. Ex Factor, my precious book baby, has released early!!

Yeah, baby!


Blurb:

Nevaeh Evan’s life is uprooted after her father’s death, when she moves in with her aunt and cousin, Livvie. Her plan to lay low at her new high school isn’t working. Her friend’s jerky boyfriend keeps asking her out, the guy she likes treats her like garbage, and the thought of tumbling again makes her want to hurl.

So when her aunt pushes her into joining the elite X-FACTOR cheer leading squad, Navaeh goes along with it.

But Nev feels she doesn’t deserve to be happy. Not after what happened the night her father died.

Bodie Scott knows about grief all too well. Critically injured in an alcohol related accident the year before, Bodie struggles with the fact that he’ll never play football again, and he’s so far behind in credits he can’t see straight. That is, until he meets Nev. Haunted by their bloody pasts and wary of a shared future, Nev and Bodie turn to one another for comfort and support, and realize they’re not so alone after all. And when the party scene at school threatens the life of a loved one, the two stop at nothing to keep the past from repeating itself.


My awesome publisher, Swoon Romance, decided to release my sweet baby unto the world yesterday, and I couldn't be happier, more scared, more excited than I am right now. I'm literally filled to bursting with a mixed bag of emotions and I feel like I may pop!!

I'll try to refrain from spontaneous combustion, lol!!

If you follow my Youtube channel (if you don't, you should, I'm on it all the time), you'll know how special this trilogy is to me. These books, Ex Factor in particular, are the books of my heart. Nev and Bodie's story was inspired not only by my daughters and their amazing cheer abilities, but by the Every Fifteen Minutes program. My oldest daughter took part in this awesome program her senior year and the re-enactment and corresponding video were so moving I knew I needed to write about what I'd seen.

Swoon has introduced the book at an AMAZING discounted price of just .99. Get at it, my friends. And tweet me while you read! Use hashtag #diamondgirl and chat about the story and characters as you go along. I'm excited to chat with you!!

Have a great day!!
