Today we welcome Elisabeth Roseland. We’re a stop on her virtual book blitz tour to promote her novel Corporate Merger.
Amy Connelly has gotten used to the taste of shoe leather. Every time she opens her mouth to talk to gorgeous co-worker Eric Lewis, she puts her foot right in it.
Tired of the painful sight of her turning into a hopeless motormouth or tongue-tied fool at Eric’s approach, Amy’s friends take steps to remedy the problem. Her thirtieth birthday present is three desensitization dates with Derrick Vaughn, an Ebony Nights escort and an Eric look-a-like.
It’s magic. Communicating with Derrick is easy, especially when it’s their bodies doing the talking. He’s even helped her rediscover the kinky side she’s repressed for so long.
Eric? That’s a different story. She’s failed miserably at two of Derrick’s three assignments for her—asking Eric to lunch and dinner—thanks to a meddling, flirty co-worker who’s suddenly vying for Eric’s attention. If shy, awkward Amy is to have a chance, she’ll have to kick it up a notch…or three.
Warning: This book contains an awkward motormouth heroine, a painfully shy hero, and a sexy male escort who knows how to set them on the course of true love.
“Hi, Amy.” Melissa flashed a perfect, if insincere, smile. “How is everything going down in the basement?”
“Um, fine. Actually, we were just talking about—”
“Oh, that’s great,” Melissa said with a wave of her hand. She then turned to Eric. “Oh, I have something very exciting to tell you. Do you remember the other day when we were talking about the Parliament-Funkadelic reunion concert, and how all of the dates were sold out?”
“Yeah.” Eric had turned his body slightly to face Melissa, but now he glanced awkwardly at Amy.
“Well…” Melissa pushed a blonde hair off her forehead, “…you are not going to believe this, but I scored some tickets.”
“You did?” Eric’s eyes grew wide. “How’d you do that?”
“I have my ways.” Melissa winked, her mascara-lined eyelashes fluttering briefly over her blue eyes. “Anyway, I want you to be my date. The concert is on the twenty-first. Saturday.”
Eric again looked over at Amy, who could feel herself growing smaller by the second. She grabbed her cup and took a sip, in an effort to appear nonchalant. He cleared his throat. “I don’t—”
“I won’t take no for an answer.” Melissa’s manicured hand shot out and tapped him playfully on the shoulder. “It’s the concert of the year. You know you want to go. I’ll even pick you up. Say yes.”
“Say yes.” She smiled and tilted her head.
“Um…” his eyes cut over to Amy, “…okay.”
“Okay. Fantastic.” Melissa picked up her fork and began spearing her salad. Amy shifted uncomfortably in her seat. “We’re going to have a great time. I’m so excited. You should see the seats we have, they are fan—”
“I’ll see you later, Eric.” Amy gathered up her half-eaten lunch and stood up.
“Oh, I’m sorry.” Melissa blinked. “Was I interrupting something?”
“No, you’re fine. I was done anyway. I’ll see you later.” Unable to look at him, Amy turned and walked away.
