Angles – Part 1
by Erin Lockwood

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

A compelling love story about Caralee, her best friend Teddy, and her new love interest, Sam. The intensity of Sam entering into Cara's life challenges her friendship with Teddy - which was forged long ago when they encountered a deranged gunman. Teddy will stop at nothing to protect Cara - even if it means keeping his long time business associate and once best friend far away from her.

This story is about friendship and relationship triangles, love and protection, love and understanding, and love vs true love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT ONE:

Chapter 2

By the time I get back to dancing with Dean, I feel something, someone, watching me. The feeling I felt before my speech is stronger now. There’s something consuming my surroundings—an invisible, sweltering blanket over me. As soon as I have the chance, I look around and try to find the source of this feeling—the burning eyes I can’t see, yet, but I sense are focused on me.

I casually scan the room between dips and twirls.

My breath catches. There they are—the eyes I’ve been searching for. A man, a gorgeous man, in a perfectly tailored suit is staring at me. It’s no mistake. Now that I see him, I know his eyes are the source of this feeling I’ve been having.

There are worse people to have stare at you. He might be a little older, but he’s very attractive. He wears his dark brown hair slicked and styled up and back. It looks soft enough to run my fingers through and short enough to create a little edge to it. His blackish gray suit blends in with his olive, tan skin. Every part of him is dark and smoky, except his eyes. His turquoise-blue eyes are so bright; they’re like headlights shining at me. A lighthouse warning me not to come too close or my boat will crash.

REVIEW:


Wow!  Wow!  Wow!  I totally loved this book!  It was the perfect afternoon read.  And yes – I meant that as singular as I did indeed read this book in just one afternoon sitting lol.  I could not put it down!  I was held captive from the first page to the very last page.  Not many books can do that and I am very surprised to find that this was Mrs. Lockwood’s first book as the writing was truly superb!  Further proof U of O has an excellent journalism program lol!

This book was such a fun, exciting, intriguing, fascinating read that took you on a real life love story.  Even though this book is a contemporary romance book – it is no cookie cutter love story.  This love story is messy, honest, realistic, and relatable.

This book follows Caralee and her friends on an interweaving web of love, life, friendships, understanding, vulnerability, and growing up.

Caralee meets Sam.  He is sexy, handsome, mysterious, and a total gentleman.  There is one problem though – Jason, Caralee’s boyfriend.  Teddy is Caralee’s best friend.  He is recently married to Anne.  There is one problem though – he’s in love with Caralee.  This book is not your average love story triangle – there are multiple angles involved!  This book is full of drama, love, excitement, and is just down right entertaining!

The main and supporting characters were likable, relatable, and well described.  The writing style is fluid, well developed, and at a steady pace.  There are twists and turns and unexpected moments. 

I would absolutely recommend this book as it was such a fun, exciting, intriguing, fascinating read!  Fair warning – don’t make any other plans because once you start reading this book you won’t be able to stop!  I am very excited to follow Mrs. Lockwood’s career and read the next book in this series!  Definitely check out this book – you won’t be disappointed!

AUTHOR BIO:


Erin Lockwood grew up in Castro Valley, California, and attended the University of Oregon where she graduated with a degree in journalism in 2003. From there, she moved to Denver, Colorado, and spent the next seven years searching for the love of her life and building the family of her dreams.

It wasn’t long until, with children starting preschool and more time on her hands, Erin refocused on her career, beginning with a successful entry into the world of residential real estate as a realtor. Free time was spent reading book after book—and binge-watching the subsequent films—in the New Adult genre. Hopelessly in love with her husband, she wrote him a short story for their fifth wedding anniversary. That’s when she discovered her tireless passion to share her experience of falling in love through fictional characters. That story evolved into the first novel in the Angles Trilogy.

Erin still lives in Denver with her husband, Phil, and their three children. They spend most of their summers and holidays on the beautiful island of Coronado where Erin and Phil wish to retire someday.
