** Blog Tour ~ Fender Bender Blues ~ Excerpt & Giveaway **

PhotobucketI'm very excited to be a part of the blog tour for Fender Bender Blues by Niecey Roy. In this post you'll find an excerpt, my exclusive interview with Niecey, AND 2 giveaways! That's right...2 chances to win! 

Fender Bender Blues sounds like such a fun novel. I can't wait to read it!

FenderBenderBlues_w7492_750 (1).jpgHer life took a wrong turn. He's driven by success. They didn't count on crashing into love...

Rachel Bennett loved her job until the day she finds herself doubting her choices.  Now she's hunting for a new career, but starting over isn't easy.  Her plan is simple—no distractions until she finds her dream job.  She didn't plan on fate throwing her a curveball in the form of a fender bender with a sexy guy in an expensive suit.

Craig Larsen is a wealthy, successful business owner with a plan of his own: survive his current PR nightmare and stay away from his overly determined ex-girlfriend.  His need for control and personal success is turned upside down when he meets Rach, a sassy redhead who can't drive.

Soon they find themselves battling with Rach's grumpy old neighbor, toilet-papering the trees of a high school nemesis, and fighting over the last slice of pizza.  Can two very different people plus one fender bender equal a chance at forever?

“Now what?”
“Nothing.”Rach sniffed.
Craig shifted to eye her warily. “Since when do you answer me with single words?”
“Since I decided I’m not talking to you,” she answered with a shrug, crumpling up the white paper wrapper from her sub.  
Craig leaned his face in close to her neck and enjoyed the startled jerk of her shoulders. Her eyes opened wide in surprise. His breath shifted a few strands of hair at the nape of her neck as he whispered, “Why, because you want me?”
“You’re incorrigible,” she said, breathless, her cheeks flushed.
She’s enjoying this. The thought pleased him. Rach was on her back beside him now, her eyes closed. He glanced around the park to see if anyone was watching. No one was. He could swoop in for a kiss and no one would catch him. No one would care, he told himself. She won’t mind
“I can feel you staring.”
Craig smiled down at her. “So what.”
She peeked at him with one green eye. “So stop it.”
“And if I don’t?” Maybe she’d tackle him, push him down on the blanket and…
She didn’t. She promptly closed her eye and went back to pretending indifference. “I’ll hit you, that’s what.”
“Not if I do this, you won’t.”
He’d only meant it to be a short kiss, but the pleasure of touching his lips to hers kept him there longer. Her tongue was velvet soft and warm against his and the slow mating of their mouths quickened his heartbeat even as he told himself, It’s no big deal, just a kiss.
She nipped his bottom lip and sent heat sliding through his body. The woman could kiss.
She whispered soft against his lips, “Now why don’t you admit that it’s you who wants me.”


BB: Why are readers going to love Fender Bender Blues?

Niecey: I laughed while writing most of Fender Bender Blues. When I wrote it, I would close my eyes and picture the scenes unfolding just like they would on the big screen. I’m a huge Rom-Com flick fan. Can’t get enough of them! I intended the reader to fall in love with the characters just as much as with the story. Rach and Craig from Fender Bender Blues have real people problems. They struggle with real people issues. So when they fall in love, it feels real. I think the reader will appreciate these things.

BB: What was your favorite part about writing this book?

Niecey: I loved every part about writing this book, but probably the best part was writing The End. It was a great feeling!

BB: Is there any specific inspiration behind Rachel and Craig?

Niecey: Rach’s character is really very important to me. Not only does she remind me a lot about myself, but she’s very down to earth, which is something I hope the reader sees. Aside from all the chaos surrounding Rach’s life, she’s just a woman struggling to find the right path in life.

BB: What do you do when you're not writing?

Niecey: I quit writing for a long time—I got married and pregnant at 24 and life got really busy for me. But I remember sitting at home with a Kate Perry book in my hand, it was actually her first published book, and after I finished it I thought to myself, I want to write again. I can do this. I can be a published author! And so I sat down and started writing. Kate has been a great mentor to me. I tell her often how she inspired me to start writing again, and she tells me often to never, ever quit. If you haven’t read a Kate Perry novel, I suggest you start with her Laurel Heights series. You’ll love it!

Thanks so much for being here today!

Niecey: It’s been really great being a guest on your blog today.
