My stop today for the blog tour of this promising book with a little love (friends turn into lovers), a little mystery, and lots of humor 🙂

All Shook Up By Chelsey Krause
August 29th – September 2nd 2016

All Shook Up def

Blurb:

Natalie’s world is shaken to its core when she discovers an old photo of a woman who looks like her. Could this woman be related to her birth mother, who put Natalie up for adoption as a baby? When she tracks down the person who dumped the photo album at her thrift shop, she’s shaken again. Especially when the gorgeous fire-fighting guitarist offers to help her find the owner. They quickly become friends – which is all they’ll be, as far as Natalie’s concerned. Her rebellious youth turned her off cheating men, and the new Natalie is looking for true love and a family of her own – something Casey isn’t willing to provide. But how long can Natalie ignore her undeniable attraction to the man with the Irish accent and the broken-down ’57 Chevy?

In Chelsey Krause’s second novel, friends become lovers over a whirlwind summer of rockabilly rhythms, twirling skirts, and a mystery that takes them hilariously far out of their element.

Excerpt:

A breeze picks up and a chill settles around me. I pull my knees to my chest and pull the blanket tighter. Casey looks at me from the corner of his eye, and after a beat, he lifts up his arm.

“Come here.”

I hesitate for a moment, noticing that my pulse has quickened.

“I know you’re cold,” he says. “You have goosebumps.”

“Umm, yes,” I say, feeling like my tongue is slow and awkward, stumbling over my words. My body feels jittery and cold, as if all the blood has rushed to my heart, and my flesh prickles with an intoxicating mixture of excitement and nervousness. There’s no way I’m admitting that these goosebumps are from being around him.

He tilts his head to the side, inviting me in once more. A shiver passes through me. Probably half from the cold, half from adrenaline. I’m not sure if this is a good idea, but I’m freezing my ass off. I slide over and let him wrap his arm around my body. He pulls the blanket up higher with his free hand and tucks it around us.

“There. Snug as a bug in a rug,” he says.

Casey’s body is incredibly warm. Solid. Reassuring. I catch myself thinking that I wouldn’t mind staying right here for the rest of the night.

“So, did you sleep with her?” I ask casually after my raging hormones have calmed down a little.

“With who?” he asks, sounding genuinely confused.

“Ginormous boobs.”

He laughs. “No, I didn’t. I just walked her back to her trailer and said good night.”

“No good-night kiss?”

“No. She smelled like cigarettes. Yuck.”

It feels like a weight has been lifted off my chest and I can breathe again. The cool night breeze picks up and I shiver. Casey tightens his hold of me.

“Wish I’d brought another blanket,” he mutters.

“I’m glad you didn’t,” I say without thinking.

“Why?” he guffaws.

My heart throbs a quick, panicked pulse. Crap! He can’t know how I feel about him! How can I fix this?

“Oh you know,” I say, my voice sounding high and tinny. “You, uh, wouldn’t want to over pack.”

He grunts, sounding amused. “Okay then…”
