Except Tour: Ember's Center by Jillian Jacobs


Ember’s Center
by Jillian Jacobs

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

BLURB:

She spent her life fighting for middle ground, and now that she’s found it, she’ll fight for her life.

Ember Brooks yearns for an end to the dark chapters of her life—abusive mother, negligent father, teenage trauma, and sibling suicide. Determined to escape her traumatic past, Ember is finally headed for solid ground, gathering strength and balance with the help of her trusted counselor and friend, Xander Kane.

Still reeling from the death of her brother, Ember finds solace when Manchester Marauders center, Owen Killion goes on the offensive and barrels into her life. Both on the football field and off, Owen is sure-footed and confident. With his domineering presence and reliable nature, he alters her game-plan. But for a girl continually left on the sidelines, can she leave her heart on the line?

When Ember is the victim of increasingly dangerous incidents, and Xander changes the course of their relationship, once more her life spirals out of control.

Ember trusts Owen to guard their love, but when someone else is calling the shots, can they reach the end zone or will they fumble?


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

EXCERPT:

Not comfortable around men, especially huge, handsome ones with square jaws sharp enough to cut ice, Ember calmed her breathing and tried stilling her pounding heart. The Marauders’ center stood in her cube entry.

Her entry. Oh no! Where has my mind strayed?

Did he live up to the rumors? The “O” in Offensive-line raised many a woman’s curiosity across social and traditional media platforms since all the players were extraordinarily gorgeous. Not hard to imagine Owen’s reputation for bedroom proclivity was very accurate since his shoes were so big, which meant he was big everywhere. Ridiculous. She would not stare there.

Maintain eye contact. Keep it!

    1. Thanks, Karen. My mother is the one who found the beautiful pottery, and my ancestry on my father's side is Polish, so I suppose it's ingrained. I had been dying for miniature tea sets, and they finally got some in. I now have three.

  5. Thanks again for hosting Ember's Center today. I'm heading to a dinner with about eight other romance writers. We should probably call and warn them ahead of time. LOL. I appreciate your support. I'll check back in each day. Thanks!
