Love Beyond The Curve by Kate Patrick Book Tour and Giveaway




Love Beyond the Curve
by Kate Patrick

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Charlotte is shocked to find her new landlord, Reed Jackson, is tall, dark, and gorgeous.  The two become fast friends, enjoying times spent together, more than times apart. Charlotte can’t believe that Reed finds her curvaceous figure incredibly sexy.  Can Reed convince her he wants to be more than just “friends with benefits”? 

Will Charlotte and Reed find… Love Beyond the Curve?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt
Definitely not what he had expected.  All he had been told was that a nurse had rented the apartment.  A nurse.  No nurse he had ever had looked like that.  She was bigger than any girl he had ever dated, but she was gorgeous!  And that was with no make-up, comfy clothes, and completely caught off-guard.  Yet, she seemed not to care that someone was seeing her like that.  Candace would have gone into some conniption fit if he ever saw her with no make-up and shown up unannounced.
          Charlotte had been obviously watching TV and eating ice cream when he had shown up on her doorstep.  He hadn’t been with a girl in a long time that even admitted to eating ice cream, much less leave evidence in plain sight!  He had noticed the container on the coffee table, not to mention the speck of chocolate on the corner of her mouth.  Funny, but for an instant, he had fought the urge to lean over and lick it off her face.  Where did that come from?  She was not wearing a bra, and her large, full breasts had literally bounced when she walked from the kitchen to where he was waiting for her in the living area. 
The slight shadow around Charlotte’s hardened nipples told him they were dark and bigger than he was used to seeing in the flesh.  Her body had been molded by the leggings she had been wearing, revealing long legs with shapely thighs and full hips that screamed to be squeezed just a little, evidently having a softness to them that was incredibly feminine.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Kate Patrick grew up in the South. She can’t recall a time in her life when she didn’t love to read. She remembers going to the library as a child where she devoured biographies and Nancy Drew mysteries. Her love of reading has continued into adulthood, but it is hot romance that she loves to write! While in high school and college, she and her sister began to write romantic stories about girls that met their dream guys who fell instantly in love with them. Even these early manuscripts were spicy enough that the need to “hide” these notebooks was a high priority when leaving the house!

Writing took a backseat to a teaching career, marriage, and motherhood, though books were constant companions. Love stories became a favorite, and began to take the place of mysteries more and more. About three years ago, the idea of writing was rekindled. Now, you can find her late at night typing away by the blue glow of her laptop screen.

She and her husband live on the Gulf Coast with their son and three quirky Pomeranians. When not writing or reading, Kate loves to sing, dance, and watch romantic movies, side-splitting comedies, and crime dramas. Spending time connecting with family and friends is an important priority for her as well.
