Evan Grace Launch Party Giveaway #2 with Teresa Reasor


Now lets welcome Teresa Reasor!! Thanks for stopping by! 

Breaking Away is the third book in my SEAL Team Heartbreakers series. I love writing about alpha males in the military. They are strong and fierce, possessive and driven, but can be tender and protective, too. 

Flash, the hero in Breaking Away, is all those things and more. He is sexy and smart. And so very tender it was hard for me to say good-bye to him once the book was finished. 

Because he was such a large character, I had to be careful to pair him with a strong woman. Samantha wasn’t strong when I first introduced her in the book, but she grows into the perfect match for him. So, even though I was in love with him myself, I had to step aside and let them find happiness. After I tormented them just a little—well actually a lot. But though they didn’t deserve it, it was their story and their love was stronger for everything they went through. 

After all Conflict is the life’s blood of a story and without it, there wouldn’t be that satisfying happy ever after. Would there? 



Blurb:

When lone wolf, Navy SEAL Harold “Flash” Carney agrees to act as an undercover operative for the FBI in an international smuggling sting, he revisits a past he hoped to leave behind forever. During the sting his handler is killed. Neck deep in a double cross and cut off from his team, Flash goes on the run with only his training to keep him alive. 

Samantha Cross is desperate to leave her past as a battered wife behind, but her ex-husband is attempting to gain custody of their daughter, Joy, to keep them in his life. When her ex turns stalker, Sam is determined to do whatever it takes to protect her daughter and break his hold over them for good. 

Despite their mutual wariness, Samantha and Flash are drawn to each other. But trust comes hard. When the walls both have erected start to crumble, trouble surfaces from all fronts, and Flash has no choice but to break away from the ingrained habits of a lifetime to save the one thing he’s always wanted and thought he’d never have—a family.

Excerpt:

He brought with him the smell of night air, tinged with the desert honeysuckle that bloomed alongside the porch, and him. A clean male scent totally his own. His blue eyes searched her face before he shut the door behind him. He stepped close. 
Her breath hitched and her heart raced. She wanted to feel the texture of his beard beneath her hands, the texture of his skin. Her mouth grew dry with need and she swallowed. When he bent his head, her arms twined around his neck and her lips parted to drink in the touch and taste of his kiss. 
Tim’s arms wrapped around her, holding her tight. His tongue tasted the parting of her lips seeking and finding hers with a hunger that melted away her uncertainty. The kiss went on and on. She pressed herself as close as she could get, and at the feel of his arousal, rose on tiptoe to align her hips to his. She lost herself in the sweet fierceness of his embrace until breathless, she broke the kiss and turned her face into his shoulder. Had she ever felt this way before? As though every bone and muscle might dissolve with need? 
Tim drew in a ragged breath and his hand ran in restless circles up and down her back molding her closer. 
She drew back and looked up at him, then cupped his face and ran her fingers over his jaw. His beard lay in dark bristles against his skin, wiry but smooth outlining the lips that had just left hers. He kissed her again, his tenderness and care overwhelming her. 
“We’ll take it slow,” he said as his lips brushed her cheek, her jaw, and the sensitive skin beneath her ear. “I’m not in any rush.” 
“You’re such a gift to me,” she murmured. “Every day you give me more and I want—I don’t know how much I can give you back.” 
“This is more than enough, Sam.” 
His tone brought tears to her eyes. She ran her hand down the back of his head, smoothing his hair and holding him close. “How can it be, Tim?” 
He drew back to look down at her. “I’ve been wandering, rootless for months, putting one foot in front of the other, just surviving. When I look at you…” He shook his head and his throat worked as he swallowed. “When you opened your arms to me just now, I finally felt like I’d found my way home.” 
How had she missed seeing the loneliness he carried? Tears rolled down her face in a rush. 
“I know you’re not ready for anything heavy. But I need to—I’ll be satisfied living on the periphery of what you have, until we figure out if this is right.” 
Her heart ached. He felt he couldn’t expect more because she had allowed fear to build a wall between her and the rest of the world. How could she continue to allow it to do that with him? She tugged him toward the couch and he followed. When he sat down, she slid into his lap, drew his lips to hers, and tasted the saltiness of tears. She drew back to wipe her face with the hem of her t-shirt. 
“Don’t cry, Sam.” 
“I’m not—anymore.” She nestled close to him and laid her head atop his shoulder. He continued to run his hands up and down her back the pressure both soothing and sensual. Her breath hitched, then grew unsteady. She wanted more.
