Teaser Tuesday: Freaking Love

Hey y’all! It’s teaser Tuesday and because I’m behind on my teasers, today you get two for the price of one!

Keep scrolling to meet two of the most important people in Maia’s life: her boyfriend and her best friend.

The first teaser for Freaking Love is about Maia’s boyfriend /first love, Braden Hale.

I walk out of the AB Construction offices to Braden’s beat-up, piece-of-shit, older-than-dirt pickup truck. I can’t believe the fucking thing still runs. 

Braden is sitting on the hood. 

If I wasn’t trying to stave off a panic attack I’d make a note of how damn sexy he looks. Okay, I guess I can still make a note. And that note is: mmmm.

He looks like a good old country boy.
Beat-up, old-ass pickup truck? Check. 
Faded, worn blue jeans? Check.
Tattered ball cap? Check.
Cheeky grin? Check.

He slides his ball cap off and runs his fingers through his matted down, reddish brown hair.

His grin grows into a full smile when he sees me.

For a moment, I melt.

In the second teaser Tuesday for Freaking Love, we’re meeting Maia’s best friend, Vince Ardito.

He furrows his brow at me, launches himself off the door, plops into the other office chair and propels himself over to the desk I’m sitting at. He runs a hand through his thick, shaggy, dark blond hair that falls between the nape of his neck and his shoulders. He leans his elbow on the desk, puts his head on his fist, and stares at me with his piercing blue eyes.

Vince is effortlessly cool. And he doesn’t even realize it. But all the girls do. How could they not? He’s built like a linebacker or maybe a viking. He’s tall and broad shouldered with thick muscles all over his body. Every move he makes is suave. Everything he does, he does perfectly.

He puts one big hand on my forearm and says with concern, “what’s going on Mai?”

I hope you enjoyed these teasers, if so, don’t forget to like and follow for more teasers and behind the scenes fun.

Freaking Love is launching on Kindle Vella in just a few weeks and the first three episodes are free!

Coming Soon: Freaking Love

Y’all I am so FREAKING excited about this!

Freaking Love is a project I’m launching on Kindle Vella when it goes live in late July. It’s a cozy YA story full of romance, friendship, family, heartbreak, and a whole lot of love.

I started writing this back in 2017. I can’t remember if it was a book or a screenplay first but it’s been back and forth. I really envisioned it as a TV show and had the first two full scripts written for it. But I knew that was beyond a long shot and I always knew I wanted to tell these stories for a long time, without worrying about a show being canceled.

Fast forward to the year from hell (2020 what’s up) and I finally found my narrative style and started transitioning this back into a book, yet it still felt very much like I was writing a TV show. Each small chapter was a scene. So when I heard about the episodic formula of Kindle Vella this project jumped to the front of my mind.

I’m so excited to put one of my favorite stories out there in the world (finally!). 

Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting some teasers each week with some favorite quotes from the first few “episodes” to get you excited for the story and introduce you to some of the characters! I hope you’ll love them as much as I do.
