Falling for Chloe Blog Tour

Falling For Chloe Blog Tour Banner
Welcome to my stop on the Falling for Chloe Blog Tour - Really excited to share the latest book by author D. Stearman with you!
Falling for Chloe cover
Jake Marley always dreamed of making it big as a singer / songwriter, and when a chance meeting in his hometown ends with an invite to Nashville, he’s sure fame and fortune are just around the corner. After Jack jumps on the fast track to success, his notoriety grows - but so do his addictions.
Jake expected fame to take its toll. He just didn’t realize how much he’d have to give up in the pursuit of stardom. But the hardest thing? Losing Chloe, his small-town girlfriend and the only person who knows the real Jake.
Can Jake and Chloe find their way back to each other? Or will the price of fame remove any chance he has to prove his love for Chloe?

Excerpt:

The problem was that he was hot and I was not. So he got all the girls and I got, well, mostly myself, which was not that great a thing. That was the general run of our lives and the way it was on that pivotal afternoon. He, Brandon Burke, with his insane football skills and movie-star looks, sat in a corner booth at our local Micky D’s with out-of-my-league Alison, her shadow Erika, and some other celestial being.
Me, I was with my ace Snort, which was also not that great a thing.
“Hey Jake,” Snort croaked, “who’s that luscious morsel over there by Ally?”
“Don’t objectify women, Snort. It’s dehumanizing.”
His gaze lowered. “I … I can’t help it. It’s genetic. I have a Y chromosome.”
Snort wasn’t all that bad a guy; it’s just that he came off as kind of a loser. But then again so did I, mostly because I was one.
But my fortunes began to turn the moment the Great One entered the room. Being a Classic Rock freak, I recognized him at once. Brandon, not so much since he lived in a parallel universe anyway.
What prompted the amazing Steven Tyler to grace our humble hometown hangout will remain a mystery throughout the ages. Nevertheless, there he stood, in all his braided, beaded glory.
Snort squinted. “I’m hallucinating.”
“Definitely an apparition.” My eyes drifted back to the unapproachable angel in the corner booth.
Snort cleared his throat. “He looks old.”
I shrugged. “He is. Who cares?”
Snort shoved a napkin my way. “Get an autograph.”
“No way. It’s embarrassing.”
He slid his phone across the table. “Then take a pic.”
“Too invasive. And cheesy.”
“C’mon Jake, we can’t just do nothing.”
I groaned, struggling to my feet. “OK, I’ll figure something out.”
A couple of WWE-types stood nearby, clearly the celebrity’s bodyguards. They ignored me, probably figuring a skinny teenaged nerd offered little threat to their charge’s security.
Approaching him, I mumbled. “Um, hey, Mr. Tyler …” I’m not worthy. I’m not worthy. “I love your work.” OK, that was lame.
“Thanks,” he replied, addressing me as if I were a regular human being. “Are you a musician?”
“Uh-huh. A rock singer. Following in your footsteps.”
The Celestial Being appeared at my side. She looked up at him with eyes like aquamarines. “Mr. Tyler, would you please sign this? It’s for my dad.”
“Sure, sweetie.” He winked, took the paper, autographed it, and returned his gaze to me.
“You any good?”
I shrugged. “Some people think so.”
“Do you write?”
“Yeah, a little bit.”
“Care to send me a demo?”
You’ve gotta be kidding. “Sure. Where to?”
He burrowed into his pocket and pulled out a gum wrapper, upon which he scribbled an email address. “But no covers, OK? It’s gotta be original.”
As he handed the wrapper to me, his eyes shifted back to the girl. “Take care of him,” he quipped. “He just might be the Next Big Thing.”
My face felt warm. “We … we’re not together.”
He eyed us both up and down. “Too bad. You guys would make a cute couple.”
He turned, ordered a Quarter-Pounder, nabbed it and waved as he headed out.
I stood there, dumbfounded, the Angel still hovering by my side.
She extended a graceful hand. “Hi, I’m Chloe.”
Again, I’m not worthy … “Um, hi Chloe, I’m Jake. You new around here?”
“Just moved in.”
Makes sense. That’s why you’re unaware that I’m a social reject and unqualified to receive communication from your kind. “Really?
From where?”
“Riverside.”
“Is that back east?”
“No, it’s in California.” She giggled, and the ring of it was sweeter than the sound of Metallica’s lead guitarist trilling triplets on the twelfth fret.
I felt a grin warm my face. What an afternoon. Steven Tyler, and now this Chloe. Would anything ever come of any of it?
My shoulders slumped. Dream On.

 Excerpt
Excerpt from His Assurance (Assured Distraction #3)
© Thia Finn 2016

I wrapped around her allowing the perfect tits to scrape lightly up and down my pecs. The warm water added another layer of sensation as the pink tips pebbled. Under the moonlight, they looked like heaven slightly bobbing in the water against my chest. I backed off enough to take one of the stiff peaks in my mouth tonguing and sucking it until I felt her move against my waist, trying to cause more friction where she needed it.

“We need to move this party of two so I can touch bottom. I want to be able to get to all of you.” I maneuvered our warm, wet bodies up the slope.She still had to bounce a little on her tiptoes, keeping her a little off-balance. I liked it because it gave me more control. I put her hands beside her head on the coping, so she held herself above the water.

“Hold on, MaCheri.”

I went under water and found the low riding shorts that had been driving me crazy all day. When she moved the right way, a little strip of tanned skin peeked out to tease me. I couldn’t resist nipping around her navel ring that slightly dangled as I unbuttoned the offenders and slid those tiny panties off at the same time. Lightly sliding my index finger over her bare lips without breaking the seam, I heard her give a little gasp at the tender touch. Between the friction from before and those sexy noises she made, my dick was standing at full attention, waiting his turn.

I replaced my finger with my tongueand broke the surface of the water as I ran my tongue up her midline from pussy to chin. The scorching look she gifted me with made him harden even more. Damn, I needed this girl and her sweet pussy.

I stood and looked down at her. “Damn Lola, you are so beautiful.”
