Love at the Electric
by Jenn Hughes

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

GENRE: Contemporary Romance

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

BLURB:

Walking wildfire Sam Owens gets Lillian hot in all the right ways, but there's more to the software CEO than just a pretty face. And a great body. And… Oh, right. He’s the enemy, according to the contract she signed with his rival. So when they secretly meet up for movies at The Electric, Lillian can't get too involved with Sam. She could lose her job. Her reputation. And her heart.

Sam is in love with his company, his image, his video games, and his ability to avoid commitment--at least until he levels up with attorney Lillian Walker. With her love of campy horror flicks and a body that makes him want to howl like a cartoon wolf, Sam’s found his leading lady. Too bad getting close to Lillian means tangling with her boss, a supervillain in the making.

In the nights leading up to Christmas, movies at The Electric mean more than just mutant toads and cannibal fruitcakes. Between shenanigans with old flames and an arch nemesis out to destroy any future they might have, Sam and Lillian learn the hard way that falling in love isn’t as easy as it looks on screen. When the past gets in the way of a perfect “the end,” there’s really only one solution--if werewolf Santas can bring them together, zombie ex-girlfriends can keep them together.

After all, anything’s possible at The Electric.

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

EXCERPT TWO:


The lights dimmed, the terrible background music stopped, and the movie finally got started. Sam settled down into the soft leather chair, letting his head drop against the bulging seat back. He occasionally lolled his head to the left, stealing glances at Lillian during the bloodiest parts of the flick.

She smiled at the most inappropriate times. Laughed when the werewolf Santa tore his elves to shreds. Rolled her eyes when Santa kidnapped the Queen of England. Near the end, Sam realized he’d lost track of the plot after watching Lillian more than the film.

As the end credits streamed down the screen, she glanced over and caught him staring. “I’d give it a seven. Honestly, the Queen of England? That’s tired. And there should have been a bit more gore during the elf slaughter, don’t you think?”

Sam nodded. “Yeah, maybe a little more. At least they didn’t CGI the blood and guts. I hate it when they do that. It needs to be corn syrup and red food coloring.”

After the lights came up, Sam followed Lillian out of the auditorium, oddly anxious about saying goodnight. By the time they walked out of The Electric and into the bitterly cold night, Sam’s heart had decided to perform a thrash metal drum solo.

“I’m heading back downtown,” he said, pointing to the left.

“I’m that way,” Lillian said, nodding toward the opposite end of the street.

He knew he needed to leave, but he didn’t move. The eager thumps of his heart started playing a beat he understood. Sam didn’t want to be anywhere else in the world other than standing in the falling snow at midnight with Lillian Walker.

BOOK REVIEW:


This book was such an exciting, fun, entertaining, romantic read!

I liked the main characters, Sam and Lillian.  They were realistic and genuine.  I really liked Sam and Lillian together!  They were so cute and silly together!  They both brought a nerdy/geeky side to the relationship which made for adorable, witty banter and inside jokes; which only seemed to bring them even closer!  Plus, it was quite obvious these two had chemistry as the passion just bounced off the pages!!

Also, I enjoyed most of the supporting characters as they were very complementary to the main characters and plot.

I found it interesting that this book focused on the love versus job issue since I think that is something that is happening more and more often these days – especially with millennials.  As a millennial, many of us are putting education and jobs first, over settling down and starting a family – unlike as things were, even, say twenty years ago.

I’ve had many chances to settle down and have a family, but that wasn’t something I was ready for at that time.  Somedays, I’m happy I’ve waited, especially since my mom got so sick and I needed to be there full-time to take care of her.  But then there are other days, that when she is so sick, and I don’t know how much time I have left with her, I wish I had started a family, so she could at least have met them.

Now, these particular main characters, were already in their mid-thirty’s so not quite the millennial status for them, but still an interesting concept.

It can be hard to decide which goal is more important – a high-status career or the love of a soulmate?  I feel like the right answer should always be love – but it truly depends on what place you’re at in life and then if that love is for a person or a job.  It seems like in today’s economy a job will always be available – perhaps not the exact same one, but similar enough.  It’s that exact same person that won’t probably always be around, and who knows how similar the next guy/girl will be?

Besides not only deciding to pursue this relationship, Sam and Lillian are having to deal with crazy exes and vengeful bosses that will stop at nothing to tear this relationship apart before it even gets started.

This book has a great concept, mature, but likable and passionate characters, and silly, nerdy/geeky lines that make you LOL!!

The writing style is fluid, well developed, and at a steady pace.

There are some exciting twists and turns and unexpected moments that will keep you guessing!

This book is Book One of A Port Bristol Novel Book Series.

All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend this book to all contemporary romance readers!
