I have to confess, collaborating on this adventure with my sisters has been so much fun, but sometimes they make me crazy ;). I love them to pieces, family is like that. Which is one of the millions of reasons I love novels by Jo Noelle. I have read a few things written under this name and loved them all. The amazing things is, when you scroll down and read their bio, they’re a mother/daughter team. They collaborate so well together, I love their work even more for it. Today is the release date for “Second Hand Hearts”
“As a member of a top country-western band, Chase has the money and fame he’s always wanted. When he meets the beautiful woman who owns Treasure Mountain Pawn, he has to hide both of those things from the one person he wants to know everything about him.
When Elena sees Chase for the first time, his turquoise eyes and tousled brown hair convince her that she might believe in insta-love. Just in time, her brain takes over, reminding her that her business is in trouble, making her future uncertain—not a good time for love.
But being with Chase is as easy as following her heart, until she finds he has a secret big enough to break it.”
An abbreviated version of this story appeared in the Hidden Identities anthology, and I read it first there. It was so fun to get more into the story and see the characters fleshed out. I really loved how they built Elena and Chase’s relationship on not just attraction but common ground and built it naturally from there. I’m excited for the second book in the series to come out. Falling for You (Peak City Romance Book 2) comes out October 3rd, which just happens to be my birthday, just sayin’.
I also just recently read their novella All by My Selfie, which is free on KU. This one is a bit of a ghost story, but one even a chicken like me can get behind. They do a flawless job of switching from Niall’s Scottish old world brogue to Gwen’s modern southern charm. The romance is swoon worthy and the imagery does a good job of reflecting the emotions of the characters. It’s a fun quick read.
