Small towns are perfect for summer vacations and summer flings.
The night before tourist season hits their sleepy little town, Emma had an impromptu drunken romp with a guy from a party… only to run into him just a few days later.
After her last major heartbreak, Emma swore off dating any of the out of towners. She had never questioned that decision… until Royce arrived in town. At first, she thought he was just like any other tourist during the season, here today, gone tomorrow.
However, when proved to her that he was putting down roots, that all changed.
Emma can only trust what she knows. Tourists always leave and relationships began with them always have an expiration date.
She has to protect her heart, even if she knows that if he goes, he will be taking it with him.
Only, Royce insists that he is in it for the long haul wants to build his life with her and in Sweeny. He starts giving her a note per date spelling out a single message— one painstaking word at a time. When all of a sudden the past comes barreling into Sweeny and starts to torment both Emma and Royce.
“Did you see the table full of man-meat at the diner?” Willie asks me as we’re closing up for the day.
“Man-meat? Why must you call them man-meat?” I ask casually.
Of course I noticed them. I notice all the men that come through this town. I can tell that there are some who have been here before and I can tell the ones who are first timers to our little town. The wide eyes and shock and awe that people carry sometimes, it’s obvious that some people have never been to a small town before. The table of man meat, as Willie so lovingly call them at the diner was a combination of both. And I needed to stay far away, they all had heartbreak written all over them.
“They were kind of hard to not notice Em, I mean seriously. We need to get you to the doctors, you need a check up. How could you not see them?”
“I have selective vision.”
“You have selective vision?”
“You heard me.” I say as she shakes her head.
About Tarrah Anders
Meet Tarrah. She’s a contemporary romancer who is all about the feels, with the twists of sexy mixed in between. She’s been writing since before she can remember. Writing was always a passion, that was kept it under wraps, stayed on the backburner and never vocalized or followed through with my desire to be a writer, until she read a horrible book and thought: ‘I could do better than that!’ She kept her writing romance from her husband for nearly two years, but finally told him because… royalties and taxes. Now, he lovingly helps with ‘research’ and uses him for his amazing Photoshop skills for her covers.
She is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, but living in beautiful San Diego with her own little family while working during the day as a social worker working with the homeless. She is a hardcore San Francisco Giants fan and anything dealing with cupcakes and Zombies.
Her writing style is that she tries to keep on earth. She tries her best to not be too unrealistic with her characters, what they do and how they live. She wants her books to be relatable and not to create too many eye rolls, when a character starts calling his love interest baby after knowing her for 5 minutes.
She has written and self-published 4 books and one novella. They’re all dual point of view aside from the novella. She is currently working on several pieces but focusing on two mainly. Thematically, the novels are friends to lovers, random hook-ups and office romances mixed with a whole lot of fun in the middle.
