Love Me Blurb:
Thomas Jones has come to Vegas to win yet another account for his marketing company. But when he sits across from beautiful and sensual Brianna Faulk to deliver his pitch, his desire to leave Vegas as quickly as possible is replaced by the need to get close to her. Yet she resists his
Brianna knows a date with Thomas could jeopardize her job, but he’s so maddening and insistent, she has a hard time denying him just one date. But that’s all it can be: one date. Because she has to protect her job and her secrets, even if it means giving up a chance at a life she never thought she’d have again.

Thanks so much for inviting me here today to talk about Love Me, the second book in my Take a Chance series with Entangled Publishing!
- Why did you pick Las Vegas as the meeting place between the characters?
It just seemed the perfect backdrop for the type of books I wanted to write for these characters. The first book, Try Me, began with Jeremy stumbling around the desert drunk off his ass and lost. I mean, how many other places can a man wake up drunk, in a desert, and have no recollection as to why he got there?
It had to be Vegas, baby.
- Do you believe everyone has a story worth remembering?
Oh my God, yes! We all have one. Some might be more colorful than others, but we all have quite the colorful stories behind us. I don’t think I’d ever want *mine” told, but some might find it interesting. 😉
- What is the story that has touched and inspired you to write romance stories?
The first romance book I ever read was Highland Velvet by Jude Deveraux. I was twelve, and I couldn’t put it down. I can remember every detail of that day. Exactly where I was laying on my grandmother’s floor. The smell of dinner cooking as I opened the book, not knowing I would fall in love. And that day? I decided I wanted to be a romance author.
- How does that translate into your writing?
Hmm…I’m not sure! I like to think that my love of romance books shines through in everything I write, but I’m not sure if I succeed there. I was, first, a romance reader—and I’m still an avid romance reader. I love, breathe, and live in this genre.
I wouldn’t have it any other way!
- What is your favorite moment in the “Love Me” book?
I think I’ll have to go with the epilogue! With the Take a Chance books, I’ve gotten a lot of feedback from readers that LOVED the epilogue in Try Me, so I tried to keep that special ending going in all four of the books. In Love Me, I think I succeeded, because I’m already getting tons of tweets and emails about the end. Woot!
Thanks again for having me here today!
Love Me explores love, marriage, and relationships- and the power of the past to work upon them. Adding that is intelegent, mature, observant and ponders broad contemporary issues that impact on our daily lives will probably ensure that half its potential readers tune out immediately.
At first, I thought Thomas would be your stereotypical playboy hero with smooth moves (as did Brianna), I feel like I should point out that they both fool me, the first will suprise me with his gold heart and the later will surprise me with her indepent character.
Thomas is a marketing executive who has come to Vegas hoping to land a big contract with the Golden Hand Casino. His company wants to branch into the Vegas market, but Thomas hates Vegas! Next , he meets Brianna, the business woman he from Golden Hand Casino. They literally bump into each other at their first meeting and things start to simmer!
I love Aberts’ writing style. It’s witty, quick and in times snappy as well :). This book is a fast-paced romance between two people who aren’t quite sure whether they are ready to move on from previous heartbreak, but can’t bring themselves to stop themselves in the process.
I will give this book 4 stars
