Book Fun Friday Welcomes Erika Kelly

Welcome to Book Fun Friday!

 It's my pleasure to introduce Erika Kelly and her new contemporary romance, You Really Got Me.

Erika's Bio:

Award-winning author Erika Kelly has been spinning romantic tales all her life—she just didn’t know it. Raised on the classics, she didn’t discover romantic fiction until later in life. From that moment on, she’s been devouring the genre and has found her true voice as an author. Married with four children, she’s moved 22 times, but give her pen and paper, a stack of good books, and a steaming mug of vanilla chai latte and she can make her home anywhere.

Book Title: YOU REALLY GOT ME, contemporary romance

Log Line: A band manager who's been burned one too many times by selfish musicians falls for a groupie-bait rock star who's so much more than he seems.

Book Blurb:

Emmie Valencia has what it takes to be the music industry’s hottest band manager. She just needs to prove it. Determined to discover a killer new band, Emmie is ready to make her move. First stop: Austin, Texas.
As a sizzling-hot lead singer, Slater Vaughn has no trouble raising heart rates—but his band’s been flat-lining for years. When Emmie, his bandmate’s sister, crashes with them in exchange for some free management, her industry know-how lands them a spot in the biggest music festival in Texas. But it isn’t just her business acumen that catches Slater’s attention. Emmie is sexy and warm, and—for the first time in his life—he wants more.

But as irresistible as Slater is, Emmie is done with musicians. In her experience, a man can’t be a rock star and someone to trust with your heart—but Slater is determined to show her he’s both.

Short excerpt:

Slater touched his forehead to hers. “I get turned on at the sound of your voice. I get turned on when you turn our stupid beaver logo into a smoking hot female weight lifter. I get turned on when you say you don’t want to have sex with me because you’re afraid you’ll lose me.”

“Why would that turn you on?” Emmie asked.

“Because it means you feel more for me than just checking off a box on your list.”

“But it might not be real. It might just be lust.”

“Have you ever felt anything even close to this? Jesus, Em, did you ever think you would? Because I sure as hell didn’t.” Slowly, he lowered his mouth to hers. Slowly, so he could watch her reaction, see her eyelids flutter closed, feel the breath shudder out of her throat. He kissed her and, thank the baby Jesus, she kissed him back.

The rush of sensation nearly buckled his knees. The heat of her mouth, the pressure of her fingers digging into his sides.

Immediately, she pushed him away. “God, let me just…he’s waiting for me. I have to go.”

“No, you don’t. If he had feelings for another woman, would you want him to go out with you?”

She shook her head, pushed him away, and hurried down the stairs.

Question for YOU! (leave answer in the comments)

My books are all about meeting your one and only—that fiercely passionate connection. In this one, Slater’s the one who falls first. And he falls hard. What kind of hero do you like? The alpha who knows what he wants and goes after it—or the wounded bad boy who’s not going down without a fight?
