He just had to do a lot of looking to find that one woman. Now he thinks he’s found her and he won’t let a strong, sassy gal like Josie slip away.

Jessica Lee | I Seem to have Lost My Underwear…
Author Guest / January 17, 2017

Hello, everyone! I’m so excited to be featured at Fresh Fiction today. What a great way to start the new year! How many of you went out this New Year’s Eve to a party or bar and had some random stranger saunter up to you, lean in, and unload the cheesiest or raunchiest pick-up line? Maybe it hasn’t recently happened to you, but perhaps at some point in your life you may have been the unfortunate victim of a bad pick-up line. How do you handle it? Do you laugh in their face? Play along and meet someone new who possesses an interesting sense of humor? Or do you ignore them, hoping they go away? For me, controlling the knee-jerk reaction of being rude and laughing in their face would be incredibly tough. In FALLING FOR THE PLAYER, my upcoming New Adult release from Entangled Publishing’s Embrace line, my two protagonists, Max and Patrick meet for the first time at a bar. Patrick is a star running back for his college football team, and Max…well, Max is a straight A, pre-law student. Total opposites. So what could be more fun than placing these two together for a chance meeting, then…

I live in West Wales and run a farm with my husband and eighteen year-old son. I love escaping to the world of my stories when I’m writing and the two jobs complement each other well, although they do keep me rather busy! When I do take time out I love visiting old castles or grand houses where I can indulge my other passion of photography. Guilty pleasure? Living on a farm means early mornings are the norm, so having a lie in. ~It doesn’t happen very often though. What’s in your coffee/tea? I love my morning coffee with frothy milk. Last picture you took? The sun coming up as I walked my dog across the fields. Biggest Fear? Heights. If you could have a superpower, what would it be? Being able to read superfast – then I could keep up with all the fabulous books out there! Least favorite food? Not keen on baked beans. Favorite junk food? A cheeseburger and fries. Favorite meal? I love Italian food. Biggest pet peeve? Miserable shop assistants. First author hero? Jane Austen Last book you read? Joanne Dannon’s An Unforgettable Holiday. Favorite 80’s song or artist? Now that’s a hard one, but…
