Ella’s turning what? #BlogHop

Ella Jade (and over 100 of her friends!) is celebrating her birthday this year with a bang. There’s a $100 Amazon or B & N gift card (winners choice) up for grabs, and each of the bloggers will be giving away a prize of their own.

More details on how to enter in a bit!

Birthdays are always a big fuss in my family, at least when we’re little. It felt like Christmas day at times, with everyone popping around with a pressie. Even if it was only a coloring pad and pens, I still got really excited. I hope Ella is being spoiled rotten today by her hubs and boys – she deserves it!

Now for my prize, I’ll be giving away a digital copy of The Monster of Fame, Book 1 in The Price of Fame Series.

Here’s a little bit about Never Say Never, Book 2.

When pretend turns to desire, heartbreak is unavoidable.

Sander Chase needs a date for his ex-fiancée's engagement party, but he doesn't have time for a woman in his life. Between working on the TV show Do You Have What It Takes? and his band reforming, he's too busy for a relationship. What he needs is a pretend girlfriend. He thinks he may have found the perfect woman for the job, and the bribe he offers means she's sure to accept.

After losing her job in the film industry, breaking up with her movie star boyfriend, and finding out her mum has dementia, Chloe Butler returned to the UK determined to put her life back together. The last thing she needs is to parade around London on the arm of a celebrity, and after the heartbreak caused by her ex, she swore she'd never again date a star. But when Sander offers her a chance at her dream job, it's not something she can turn down.

As Chloe gets to know Sander she learns he's nothing like her scumbag ex. But she struggles to fight her attraction to him, knowing their relationship is only for show and their separation date is closing in fast.

Ignoring the insane chemistry between them should be easy for Sander, especially since he carries a secret that means there can be no future for them, but the more time he spends with Chloe, the harder it is to keep his hands to himself.

Content Warning: contains more denial than you'll find in a courtroom, more sexual tension than most people could handle, and explosive sex that some readers may find long overdue.

To be entered into the prize draw, and for the chance to win a copy of The Monster of Fame, just tell me what your perfect birthday present would be in the comments section. Also please leave your email address so we can contact you.

Winners will be announced Monday. Good luck!
