***Blog Tour and Giveaway*** Starting Over by Barbie Bohrman

Buy Links

Single mom Vanessa Holt has a daughter she loves, a supportive family, and her art. Having given up on finding true love—if that even exists, which she doubts—she’s content to put romance on the back burner. But not everyone agrees. Those nearest and dearest are ready to see Vanessa let down her long blonde hair and have some fun.
To put their grumbling to rest, Vanessa agrees to date the first man who asks. Luckily for her, that man is Cameron Thomas, her daughter’s extremely handsome science teacher. She’d felt a spark of chemistry the first time she’d laid eyes on him. Now she’s ready to lay a whole lot more on the sexy bachelor.
But just as things get hot, they also get heavy. When the man who broke Vanessa’s heart reappears, her old doubts and fears about love rush to the surface. Will her fresh start with Cameron be over before it’s barely begun?

The next few moments are kind of a blur and kind of an out ofbody experience, because I’m not absolutely sure, but it feels as if I’m being carried up the stairs by Cameron; either that or I somehow
picked up the superpower of flying when I got this case of strep throat. Even stranger is when I’m placed in my bed, then reach out to grab a fistful of Cameron’s T-shirt and pull him down into my bed with me. More odd still is when I snuggle into his arms and sniff all the sunshine goodness that is his signature scent while burrowing into his warmth.
During the course of my broken sleep, I’m slightly aware thatI’m sharing my bed with a man for the first time in many, many years. I’m cognizant of the fact that it’s Cameron, which brings a smile to my face even as I’m semi-restless. And that he’s holding me so close to him, like a prized treasure, and running his fingers through my hair with tenderness while my fever breaks and the dreams finally come.

Sandy B's Review

Vanessa Holt is frozen in time. That is to say she's a single mom to a precocious almost teenage daughter (Josie) and her daughter, is the center of her universe. There is no room for romance, for love, for taking a chance on a relationship. I would even say that Vanessa has used Josie to avoid any kind of romantic entanglements. Then Cameron Thomas comes along and things start to get interesting. What if I told you that this possible "love" is her daughter's teacher? Oh the possibilities for complications are endless! Oh and wait! Josie's father also comes back into the picture. He's a changed man and he wants to be in his daughter's life. 

This is the perfect beach read, summer read, anytime you want something that will make you feel good on the inside read. Barbie Bohrman is one of my favorite authors. She always injects humor into her stories and I love that about her. Her characters are very well defined so there is no one blends into the other cause they're all the same kinda thing. It is sexy and angsty without being too heavy on the drama factor. It was just what I needed! 

Starting Over was a great way to spend a chilly Sunday afternoon in my reading chair. Though Starting Over is standalone, I highly recommend you 1-Click on Book #1 (Promise Me) and Book #2 (Playing it Safe).

What’s up next for Barbie Bohrman
Readers can look forward into some of my upcoming books including:
Something More than This, release date April 26th, 2016 from Montlake. It's a new standalone contemporary romance with all new characters. Here is the link from GR and Amazon is currently finalizing the cover.

Then I also have The Divorcee which I'm set to release in summer 2016.

About the Author
Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Barbie Bohrman dreamed of becoming an author. Long after she had given up, a book club's prologue contest enticed her to give it one more go. What emerged were the beginnings of her debut novel, Promise Me. Now she's living her dream and writing stories that entice readers to escape and break away from reality. When she's not writing, you can find her trying to get through the books on her Kindle (more than a thousand at last count) or watching Lost or Seinfeld. She currently resides in New Jersey with her husband and two children.

Release Day and Tour Giveaway
The author is giving away a signed Paperback of Starting Over, a $50 dollar Amazon GC and a $50 dollar Starbucks GC to ONE winner.
