G is for Getaway




My A-Z Theme is based on my books, the Game On series. You won’t need to have read them to follow this story, since it’s slightly removed from the full plot, like a side story. What it will do is give you a glimpse into my characters, and a chance to get to know them a little bit, PLUS, during the story, you will get a mini tour of parts of the UK! The posts will come from two of my main characters, Leah Walker and Radleigh McCoy.  If this is your first time here, please start at the letter A. :D

G – Getaway 
(Leah) 

“Looks like our plans for the day are ruined,” I said, dropping the curtain to hide the downpour outside our bedroom window. 

We’d just woken up on our first morning in St.Ives – one of my favourite places ever – and the weather was horrendous. I’d been looking forward to showing Radleigh around to all the places I used to go when I was a kid, but the pouring rain had put a stop to that. Obviously, we wouldn’t melt, but St. Ives in the rain  - while still visually appealing – wasn’t what I had in mind.

Radleigh grinned up at me from the bed. “Your plans might have been ruined, but this works out great for what I had in mind.”

He lifted the duvet, gesturing for me to get back into bed with him. As if I could say no to that!
Laughing, I climbed back into the bed, and snuggled against him, running my hand down his firm stomach. Mmm.



“Yeah, I guess this works, too.”

“We’ve got two weeks, Leah. We can explore any time. Right now, we have this whole place to ourselves. We’re stocked up on food, there’s nothing we have to do today. If we want, we can just stay in bed.”

My insides quivered at his words. God, he was so right. We’d rented a holiday apartment where we could go come and go when we pleased, not having to worry about chamber maids coming in to clean, and interrupting us. This was our space. 

His eyes met mine, that familiar flash of devilishness making me forget any thoughts I had about exploring anything other than him. As he leaned down to kiss me, his lips soft, hungry, I let out a sigh of happiness.

This is what romantic getaways are all about, right?

Today's Teaser comes from Blindsided, the second book in the Game On Series.

Blurb: After a successful first soccer season in L.A, Jesse Shaw heads to London with his best buddy, Hunter, but his world is turned upside down when a dangerous prank threatens his career and his blossoming relationship with Hunter’s cousin, Isabelle.

Isabelle Mills lives in Notting Hill with her parents and her twin sister, Georgia. When she finds out her cousin is coming to stay, along with his famous soccer player friend, her first instinct is to hibernate until they’ve gone. However, once she meets Jesse, everything changes. He’s everything she ever wanted, but with so many obstacles in their path, can she really risk putting her heart on the line?

  5. They have such a strong dynamic. And I'm a bit of a sucker for romance lately. Is that strange? Do you find yourself more gushy the older you get?

  12. Sometimes the perfect getaway is to get away from the family and take a nice long nap. Ahhhh, now that's the perfect day. Well, at least afternoon.

  13. I can totally picture Radleigh saying the line about how staying in all day fits into his plans exactly!
    I haven't yet read Blindsided but I'm looking forward to it.

  14. Whoo! Jesse has me in need of a fan. Oh my. Radleigh definitely has the right idea for that kind of getaway. Rain or shine they'll have a wonderful time.
