Offsides Series by Natalie Decker - Book Tour + Giveaway

Right Text, Wrong Number
Offsides Book 1
by Natalie Decker
YA Sports Contemporary Romance

306 pages

Cheerleader Layla and football player Tyler are complete opposites. She thinks
he’s the biggest jerk in school and he thinks she's too high on her
horse to even be worth a second glance. When the two of them are near
one another, sparks fly in all the wrong directions. They can hardly
endure speaking, let alone dating. 

But when Layla unknowingly sends Tyler a smack-down text meant for the
girl sending naked photos to her then-boyfriend, Adam, Tyler has no
idea it’s Layla and decides to play along. After all, Tyler cannot
resist messing with the pissed off girl firing off texts about junk
pictures, cheating, and girl code. 

As the fallout from Adam’s scandalous texts plays out in front of the
entire school, Tyler and Layla secretly continue to text each other
using fake names. But as days and weeks pass, things take a turn for
the serious between them, and suddenly, their texts mean more. Maybe
it's time to come clean about who they are and risk taking the
relationship from texts to dates, then kissing, and maybe more. 

They say there's a thin line between love and hate. Can reality live up to
the fantasy, or will Layla and Tyler be forever offsides?

Right Kiss, Wrong Guy
Offsides Book 2

313 pages

You'd think a girl with the most romantic name in the world would have her
pick of boyfriends. 

But Valentine's Day sucks when you're single. Just ask Juliet Valentine,
whose last name happens to also be the name of the most dreaded
made-up holiday ever. 

A romantic at heart, this year is especially hard on Juliet. Her
sister, Layla, is in a new relationship, her mom's match-making
business is doing great, and her school's new fundraiser is "Love-Grams."

Juliet's miserable, a little jealous, and lonely. 

Quarterback Jared Black is the most popular guy in school. A star athlete, Jared
tops the most-eligible bachelor list year after year. But to Juliet
Valentine, he's all but invisible. She isn't impressed. 

Jared's never had to work hard to get the attention of a girl before.
Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and he's determined to ask
Juliet out. After all, if Tyler can win over Layla, Jared ought to
have a shot with Layla's sister.

Unlike Tyler and Layla, charm, flattery and good looks won't work on Juliet.
So with the V-Day dance coming up, Jared uses the school’s
Love-Grams to let Juliet know how he feels. Should be simple enough, right?

Each attempt ends up either in the trash or thrown in someone's face.
Juliet won't play his game.

Now, without a date to the dance Jared realizes it’s going to take a
Hail Mary to win the girl of his dreams.

Inn the Spirit of Legends
Spirits of Texas Book 1
by Becki Willis

Genre: Paranormal Cozy Mystery

From the author of The Sisters, Texas Mystery Series and Forgotten
, comes an intriguing new book series, the Spirits of Texas Cozy Mysteries. 
When the tiny hamlet of Hannah, Texas goes up for auction, Hannah Duncan’s
fun-loving uncle sees it as the perfect gift for her thirtieth
birthday. After all, what’s more fun than a town bearing your own name? 
Nestled in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, the ‘town’ isn’t much —
a dozen or less buildings in various stages of disrepair—but it
comes with a dedicated pair of caretakers, a menagerie of farm
animals, a surprisingly generous trust fund, enough stipulations to
make her head spin, and a handsome but maddening attorney to oversee
the handling of the estate.
Originally a stagecoach stop, Hannah, Texas resolves around the historic and
rather charming Spirits of Texas Inn. The old inn
comes with a colorful past, the mystique of hidden treasure, loyal
guests who still book summer vacations there, and three surprise
residents: true spirits of the past, who didn’t cross over as expected. 
Now Hannah has her hands full, coming to terms with her unexpected status
as an innkeeper, adjusting to life in the country, fighting her
attraction to attorney Walker Jacoby, plus dealing with ghosts! 
To top it off, two fortune hunters arrive to search for the hidden
treasure, and they don’t care who stands in their way. They’ll
stoop to any means—including murder—to get their hands on the
legendary stash of gold.
Don’t miss out on the excitement, right from the beginning. Book your visit
to Hannah, Texas today!

  “Like taking candy from a baby.”
Delroy slipped into the front seat of the old pickup and held up a manila folder. His thin face split with a grin.
“What is that?”
“Some sort of contract. Lots of ‘wherefores’ and other such nonsense. It looked important, so I took it.”
“What’s in the other hand?” his brother asked, pulling away from the shoulder of the road. Del had been waiting in the trees, just as planned.
“That, dear brother,” Del said, popping the last of the morsel into his mouth and smacking his lips, “was just about the best pork chop I ever did taste.”
“I’m glad you enjoyed your midmorning snack,” his brother jeered. “What else did you find? I stalled as long as I could, giving you more time to snoop.”
“I couldn’t snoop too much,” Del complained, licking his fingers clean. “That woman was watching me.”
“What woman? There ain’t another woman out there. I’ve been casing the place all week, don’t you know.”
“Don’t know how you could miss a fine woman like her. Long blond hair, skin as fair as day, a pretty yellow dress that hung all the way to the floor. Mighty fine looking woman.”
His brother flung his beefy arm out, walloping him in the chest. “I sent you in there to find something useful, you fool, not to flirt with the cook!”
“I found this, didn’t I?” the younger man scoffed, waving the folder in the air triumphantly.
“What is it, then? What’s it say? Does it have a copy of the map inside?”
“Well, let’s just take a look-see and find out.” Delroy opened the folder and scanned the first place. “It says here the party of the first part is demanding su—sufficient r—re—renumeration,” he struggled with the words, “for concentration of expenses in—incurred—”
“You mean compensation.”
“Yeah, that too.” Del scanned the rest of the document, until he reached the last page. “Okay, here we go. This says that Opal Finke is demanding seven thousand and fifty-two dollars from Hill Country Home Insurance.”
“Who the heck is Opal Finke?”
“The poor woman who’s house flooded when the water pipe broke. Ouch! Whatdidya hit me for?” He shrank into himself, but he couldn’t pull far enough away to escape his brother’s wrath. Bigs slapped at him blindly, swatting anything his flapping arm came in contact with. The truck swerved a crazy path down the blacktop road. “Watch it, Bigs! You nearly run us off the road!”
“I’ll not only run you off the road, I’ll run you out of town!” Snatching the cap off his head, Bigs used it to extend his reach. His continued to swat at his brother, who now hovered against the far door. “I’ll run you off the dad blamed planet! That file you stole ain’t got nothing to do with the hidden treasure, you idiot. That’s just some old lady suing her insurance company. I swear, sometimes you ain’t got a lick of sense!”
“Big Daddy always said it was the curse,” Delroy defended himself. “The curse that little German gal put on our family, when Great Granddaddy Patch didn’t go back and marry her.”
“You ain’t cursed,” his brother denied. “You’re just plumb stupid.”

“That’s the problem with prevarication.”
“Prevarication? When did I ever lie to ye?”
“When ye fluttered yer lashes and begged me not to tell yer father.”
“It works for the other lasses, why not me? They get whatever they want. All the lads begging at their feet, telling them how beautiful they are—” She averted her gaze. “—and they’re not so very beautiful.”
Darragh managed to subdue his grin.
When she finally turned back, her expression had softened. “I do not normally prevaricate.”
He crossed his arms about his chest. “If ye say so.”
“I do say so. Ugh!” She blew an irritated breath. “I canna convince ye when ye won’t believe what I say.”
Brighit’s nose flared in irritation just before she shook her head in a most defeated way. The idea came to him in a flash, and Darragh smiled at his own thought before sharing it.
“A kiss. A kiss will convince me.” He half expected her to slap his face for even suggesting such a thing.
Only she didn’t. Her eyes widened, and she glanced at his lips before wetting her own. She was excited by the idea. Could it be she’d never been kissed before? He’d bet his favorite horse she had not, not with Sean as her father.
“Ye are willing then?” Her look told him she was not only willing but eager. With the slightest movement, he slipped his hands beneath the mantle to graze his open palms up her arms until they rested on her shoulders. Her lips glistened and the vein in her neck throbbed. With a low voice, he asked, “Would ye seal our agreement with a kiss?”
The sharpest tip of her head, barely a nod at all, but Darragh would not quibble. He slid a hand from beneath the heavy material to tunnel it under her thick, silky hair and cup her neck, the skin there still cool from her swim.
She leaned in, meeting him halfway. His mouth slanted across hers, a gentle caress, before he slipped his tongue between her parted lips. She gave as good as she got, deepening the kiss to where he was no longer certain who was doing the kissing. He was glad he hadn’t wagered his horse on her inexperience, though mayhap she was simply an extremely fast learner.
Without warning, she released him and backed out of his hold, wiping the back of her hand over her mouth. Her heaving chest matched his own.
He reached for her. “Brighit, I—”
She raised a hand, shaking her head, and put more distance between them. It was a long time before she spoke again. “We will wait the fortnight.”
