A CRUEL KIND OF BEAUTIFUL

 Excerpt Tour for A Cruel Kind of Beautiful by Michelle Hazen

We are thrilled to be celebrating the release of Michelle Hazen’s Rockstar Romance, A CRUEL KIND OF BEAUTIFUL! This is the first installment in her Sex, Love, and Rock & Roll series. Follow the tour for reviews, excerpts, guest posts, plus enter to win a $50 Amazon gift card!

Title: A Cruel Kind of Beautiful

Author: Michelle Hazen

Release Date: December 4, 2017

Publisher: Self-published

Series: Sex, Love, and Rock & Roll

Genres: Contemporary Romance

Page Count: 344

Synopsis:

If you can’t get to the Big O, can you get to the happily ever after? Jera McKnight loves music, swoons for hot guys, but sucks at sex. Jacob Tate is her perfect storm: a pun-loving nude model with a heart as big as his record collection. When a newspaper-delivery accident lands him in her living room, he’s almost tempting enough to make her forget she’s never been able to please a man—in bed or out of it. Sure, he laughs at her obscure jokes, and he’ll even accept a PG-rating if it means he gets time with her, but he’s also hiding something. And it has everything to do with the off-limits room in his apartment. Jera pours all her confusion and longing into her drum kit, which pays off when her band lands the record deal of their dreams. Except just like Jacob, it might be too good to come without a catch. She doesn’t know if her music is good enough to attract a better contract, or if she’s enough to tempt a man like Jacob to give up his secrets, even if they could fix her problems between the sheets. But if this rocker girl is too afraid to bet on herself, she might just end up playing to an empty house.

A CRUEL KIND OF BEAUTIFUL Excerpt

Copyright © 2017 Michelle Hazen

 

“If this is about sex, here’s the thing: I like sex. Every kind of sex. And I can make it unbelievably good for you.” He says it without a hint of a blush, and no trace of arrogance. The temperature of my skin rockets up.

I swallow to combat my suddenly dry mouth. I really, really want to roll him on top of me and forget that no matter how hot he makes me, I’ll be left panting and straining and unfulfilled at the end.

I want to pretend I don’t know better.

“This isn’t a romance novel,” I tell Jacob. “It doesn’t work like that. You can’t just put on some Barry Manilow and call it making love, and be so gentle with me that my head explodes into a rain of fireworks. I tried all that, and it sucked.”

I push up to sitting, my eyes darting away from him as I rub one hand down my opposite arm. I hate how ugly it makes me feel to talk about this stuff.

“No matter how excited I get, I can’t finish. My ex tried to help me get over it, and it only made the whole thing worse for both of us.”

“Look, I get that. I listened to that shitty voicemail he left you. But it doesn’t have to go that way, Jera. Did you know that seventy-five percent of women have trouble experiencing orgasm through vaginal sex? Only fifteen percent of women have the same trouble once additional stimulation is provided.” He sits up too. “Have you tried toys? Even just a little booster like a vibrating cock ring? What about fetishes?”

I blink, at a loss.

“Fetishes can be really unique, and they are often biologically based,” he explains. “Not linked to trauma or anything weird. They’re incredibly powerful. You could have an insane gummy bear fetish or something and just have no idea that’s what you need to get excited. Have you read much erotica?”

My cheeks burn and if my mouth isn’t hanging open, it’s only because I’m too shocked to move.

“I might have done some research,” he admits.

“Oh really? I thought I accidentally hit play on my Sexual Dysfunction for Dummies audiobook. How are you not blushing right now?”

“I like talking about sex.” He shrugs. “And it’s important to you. Of course I want to know as much as I can. Besides, I’m an engineering major. Taking things apart and figuring out how they work is kind of what we do.”

That pulls a reluctant smile from me, because that is insanely nerdy but also sweet, and more than a little embarrassing. I don’t even want to see all the ways I’ve besmirched his browser history.

Book Description:
The Montana Territory is one of the last outposts of the American West—where adventure as grand as the wide-open plains is around every corner, and passion as wild as the land itself beats in every heart . . .
Elizabeth Sanders isn’t afraid of anything, except what will happen to her beloved town if the Big Mountain Lumber Mill is destroyed. When she overhears a plot to do just that, she vows to put a stop to it, even if it means dressing as a young lumberjack to expose the saboteur. There’s only one problem with her plan—her brother’s handsome friend and fellow logger Garrett Jones, who arouses a desire within her soul as fierce as the river rapids.
When Garrett discovers that the odd new lad on the crew is in fact Beth, he’s shocked. A logging camp is no place for a young woman—especially the spirited beauty he’s admired for so long. Keeping her safe is easier said than done, however, as the attraction between them flares into true passion. As the danger mounts, Beth and Garrett must work together to survive the last log run down the wild rapids and claim any chance of saving the mill—and their chance at a future .

“Well written, well researched. Like the river, this plot runs faster and faster. Readers won’t be able to put it down.”
—New York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas
Excerpt:
Missoula
Montana, 1888
Elizabeth
Sanders could vanish right now, and no one would notice. She blended in with
every other woman by wearing her matching pinstriped walking skirt and blouse.
Each store clerk and patron in Missoula, focused on their affairs without a
care to their neighbor, would fail to notice if she walked through Higgins
Street naked, let alone disappeared into thin air. They certainly wouldn’t look
twice when she came back this way a different person.
Hundreds of
people bustled in the heat of the Montana sun doing the same old things, the
same old ways, with nothing to show for their trouble but dirty shoes. If
Elizabeth was going to get her shoes dirty, she preferred to have fun doing
it…the Devil May Care way.
Navigating the
pedestrian-riddled streets was treacherous at best. Times like this made her
wish she’d taken her grandmother’s buggy. At least then she wouldn’t be jostled
around like a dirty shirt in a churning wash bin. A deep exhale boosted her
determination enough to risk a step to the side to duck around a particularly
slow matriarch. The small triumph lasted only a moment before she slammed into
a hard chest.
The soft fabric
of a well-tailored suit skimmed her cheek a split second before warm hands
reached out to steady her. The touch—firm, yet gentle—made her feel like she
now balanced on the back of a high-strung and wild mustang as it fled down a
hill with uncontrolled freedom. She hadn’t needed the extra hand. Wasn’t in
danger of falling over. What sort of dullard rescues a woman in no need of
liberation? She pulled away and adjusted her skirts as he let go. Her mind
focused once more.
“Pardon me.” She
glanced up to a familiar face. One she’d seen many times in her dreams. Her
breath failed as her brother’s friend, Garrett Jones, peered down at her with
silver-clouded eyes. Oh, how he made the world spin whenever he drew near. His
handsome, yet rugged, face made her fingers ache to touch the severe lines of
his jaw. The rich scent of tobacco infused with lavender and some sort of
citrus drifted on the breeze. Eau de Cologne. A fragrance only the wealthiest
of men in Montana could afford. A scent belying the canvas pants, spiked boots,
and sturdy cotton shirt he sported every time she’d seen him on the train
platform.
“Elizabeth.” Did
he say her name, or did she dream the word? Oh to be noticed by a man like
Garrett Jones. The only man who could make butterflies flit around in her
stomach and fear slide through her chest in the same confusing moment.

 

The hem of her
dress hovered mere inches from his feet. Her face heated and heart began to
pound. Try as she might, she couldn’t keep her eyes off the man who led the
Devil May Care boys. The man who held her future in his hands if she succeeded
in becoming part of his crew at the logging camp. If things went the way she
planned, she’d be staring into his amber and steel speckled eyes for the rest
of the season. Did he truly recognize her after all these years of no more than
a passing glance?
