My second book, FINDING DANDELION, releases today. I want to thank everyone who is posting and RTing my links and, holy crap, actually reading what I write. Thanks for the support, guys! By the way, I’m raffling a Kindle Paperwhite, so be sure to find the giveaway at the bottom.

Here’s a little about the book. First, it’s a stand-alone. So if you haven’t read the first one, DEAREST CLEMENTINE, no worries. (But DEAREST CLEMENTINE is on SALE for FREE on Amazon for another day, so you can still check it out. I’ll post the link at the end of this post.)

In DEAREST CLEMENTINE, you learned Clem has a man-whore of a brother named Jax, who happens to be her twin. FINDING DANDELION is his story. I have a little warning about Jax. He isn’t the gentleman that Gavin is. In fact, I’m almost positive that, at some point, Jax might make you want to chuck your Kindle. But whatever you do, don’t give up on him. He might surprise you.

Finding Dandelion Official Cover

GENRE: NA contemporary romance

Synopsis:

When soccer all-star Jax Avery collides with Dani Hart on his twenty-first birthday, their connection is instantaneous and explosive. For the first time in years, Jax isn’t interested in his usual hit-it and quit-it approach.

But Dani knows better. Allowing herself a night to be carefree and feel the intensity of their attraction won’t change anything when it comes to dealing with a player. So when Jax doesn’t recognize Dani the next time he sees her, it shouldn’t be a total shock. The fact that he’s her new roommate’s brother? That’s a shock.

Dani doesn’t regret that night with Jax, just the need to lie about it. Since her roommate has made it clear what she thinks about her brother’s “type” of girl, the last thing Dani wants is to admit what happened.

Jax knows he’s walking a fine line on the soccer team. One more misstep and he’s off the roster, his plans to go pro be damned. Except he can’t seem to care. About anything… except for the one girl who keeps invading his dreams.

Despite Jax’s fuzzy memory of his hot hookup with his sister’s friend, he can’t stay away from her, even if it means breaking his own rules. But there are bigger forces at work–realities that can end Dani’s college career and lies that can tear them apart. Jax realizes what he’s losing if Dani walks away, but will he sacrifice his future to be with her? And will she let him if he does?

FINDING DANDELION, the second book in the Dearest series, is a stand-alone novel. This New Adult romance is recommended for readers 18+ due to mature content.

One of the best aspects of indie publishing is picking my own covers. Having said that, it’s also incredibly scary because, dear God, what if I pick the wrong one? Then there’s no one to blame but myself.

After encountering one of those situations with my first novel, Dearest Clementine, I turned to two friends, Becca and Krista Ritchie, for help. You might know them as the authors of the Addicted or Calloway Sisters series. I’m a total fangirl of their work, and if you take a peek at their books, you might notice that their covers kick ass. That’s because Krista designs them.

After complaining about how I needed to change the cover for Clementine, Krista offered to help… and then she whipped up the most gorgeous cover ever. Well, until she designed Finding Dandelion.

It feels wrong to gush over my own cover. It probably is, but I don’t care because Krista captured the essence of the Finding Dandelion perfectly. I should add that I was not an easy client. She developed a dozen totally different mock-ups, not to mention variations on several of those. Although each was beautiful and striking, she encouraged me to hold out until we found THE ONE. (Yes, we talk about it like finding the perfect man. Trust me–neither is an easy feat.) And to me, that’s what she created, the perfect cover. The one that makes my fingers itch to touch it. The one that makes me want to dive between the pages.

So, thank you, Krista, for the creating two of the most gorgeous covers ever! I can’t wait to see what you design for my third book!

Below, you’ll find the synopsis and an excerpt for Finding Dandelion, along with a raffle to win arcs and an Amazon gift card. I hope you’ll check it out when it releases on JULY 11. It’s a tad bit steamier than book 1, so be warned. A big thank you also to Love Between the Sheets for coordinating my cover reveal and blog tour.

xo, Lex

EXCERPT

Reid and Ashley disappear as I get lost in his kiss. We stand there while bodies crash around us to the music, and I’m caught against him like a wave breaking on the beach.

I don’t know what possessed me to kiss this guy out of the blue and pretend that we were somehow together. Right now, I’m blaming the three apple martinis. I just couldn’t stand one more interaction with Reid where I stammered like some kind of loser.

Am I imagining it or did I just tell off my ex? It’s hard to think clearly when I’m pressed up against this beautiful creature. I trail my hands up along his tall frame, dipping the tips of my fingers against the hard ridges and planes of his chest. He looks good in clothes, but the thought of what he looks like without anything on does delicious things to my body. I try to burn the sensation of what he feels like into my memory.

When we finally pull back for air, we stop to look at each other. And then we laugh.

“Holy shit.” I put my hand to my mouth, for the first time embarrassed that I’ve been trying to swallow him whole for the last five minutes. “Hi.”

He grins back. “Hi.”

I don’t hear him so much as read his lips, which I can appreciate now that my mouth isn’t sealed against them. His head slants as though he’s pondering some deep thought, like maybe how he spent the last few minutes locking tongues with a crazy girl who doesn’t even know him.

And then my world slows down as I realize who he is.

Holy shit. It’s the sexy guy from the pizza place.

Jax.
