Guest Promo (CLVIII) Summer #Romantic Idea Michelle Abott Jansen

#RomanticIdea from Michelle Abbott
Buy a pack of Post-it Notes and on each one write down something that you love about your partner. Put the notes where your loved one will find them: on the fridge door, in their lunchbox, inside the door of their closet, in their shoe etc.

Two injured, stubborn souls meet unexpectedly. Will they save each other from their demons or have they been too damaged for too long to see past the pain?

Growing up, all Jem knew was hatred and the pain from his father's fists. Taunted by the kids at school, he was alone, until a girl with carrot coloured hair sat next to him.

She smiled.
She listened.
She cared.

She was his angel, and he knew he’d love her forever. But Jem’s father hurts him in a way he never expected by taking him away from her.

Now eighteen, scarred inside and out, Jem trusts no one and has worked hard to ensure he'll never be helpless again. But then he runs into his angel. The only problem is she doesn’t recognize him. Jem needs her to remember him, to show him that their time together meant to her what it did to him. For once in his life he wants to have mattered to someone, to her.

Devon is attracted to the muscular, tattooed, pierced hottie standing by the pub quiz machine. That is, until he punches a guy clean across the bar for daring to touch him. She’s had her fill of violent men and intends to avoid this one at all costs.

I pull back the duvet and try to make as few movements as possible as I crawl in beside her and let the warmth from her body and the duvet envelop me. Her red hair is splayed out across my pillow. I reach out and stroke my fingers through the silken strands. My pillowcase isn’t getting washed again. It can smell of her forever so that whenever I lay my head on it, I can pretend she’s with me. Maybe it will be okay to move a little closer. I’m right on the edge of the mattress. If I fall out of bed I’ll wake her. I scoot closer to her, close my eyes and inhale. She smells of roses. Maybe I should get her some flowers. I picture myself holding a bunch of red roses and chuckle to myself. Nah, I’m not the suave type. Maybe I’ll get a rose tattoo to remind me of her scent.

About Michelle Abbott
Michelle Abbott lives in the UK and hates describing herself in third person.

She's a self-published author who loves to write new adult romance about heroes who begin as the underdog and are protective of their girl.

She's an avid reader of romance, is addicted to coffee and loves wine and chocolate, so yeah, not the most healthy eating and drinking habits :-) She spends way too much time online when she should be writing. She collects teddy bears and occasionally knits a couple of rows on a sweater she started years ago, which she may eventually finish in time to wear for her funeral :-)



  1. Thanks for hosting me on your blog, Carmen.

    1. You are most welcome, Michelle! I strongly believe we should help each other.
      Like you I am also addicted to coffee and chocolate, but prefer beer to wine.

  2. Congrats to Michelle on her release and thank you Carmen for showcasing her novel, JEM! Michelle is one of my Rave Review Book Club sisters. It's great to see her here on your blog!

    1. Thank you for checking our tour, Mae!
      It again confirms the saying that the world is a tight place, after all!
      Though I can't be in the RRBC, we, somehow, move in the same circles of authors.

  3. I really like the sound of Jem, and I want to read this to see how he and Devon progress. Best of luck to Michelle and thank you, Carmen, for bringing the book to our attention.
