Blog Tour: Board Approved by Jessica Jayne

I received a copy of Board Approved in exchange for my review.

Since his friend John got together with Elizabeth, they've been trying to set Greg up with a woman of his own. Little known to them, all he has to do is be in the car park at the right time. As soon as Greg sees yoga instructor, Tessa, he is attracted to her, and offers to help her out even if that means being late back to the board meeting. Tessa worries that Greg won't like her because she is too young, but all that worry flees as soon as he kisses her. Though he knows she might not go for it, Greg persuades Tessa to go on a date with him, though there is no denying the chemistry flying between them.

As with Board Stiff, I found that Board Approved was a fun read, with the chemistry and passion between the characters being the main focus. There is very little about finding out what the characters have in common, but if you want short and steamy then this is definitely that, and appreciating the book as that it is enjoyable.

Tessa was a great character, and I did actually think that some of her personality came through (despite what I just said). It sounds a bit strange I know, but I felt that Tessa was a bit quirky, that not quite normal that a lot of people are, especially when she did things like the happy dance. Also she voiced worries at the beginning of the relationship between her and Greg that most people ask. She definitely fit into the story.

The chemistry between Greg and Tessa was intense. Even when they'd just met it was possible to feel it between the two of them, and it only grew until they were able to break it properly. There were some points where the passion and energy between them made me want to read faster, because that was the pace of events.

As a short and steamy story, Board Approved (and Board Stiff) delivers!

John Dorsey’s life is good. He is the owner of Dorsey Construction. He’s the youngest person on the board of directors for Advantage Insurance Company. He lives on the beach. And he knows he can have any woman he wants. John’s got the world at his fingertips… except he’s yet to find a woman that stimulates both his body and mind.

Elizabeth Wright worked hard in a large Tampa law firm making a name for herself, but it came at the expense of her personal life. When Advantage Insurance Company offers her a job as corporate counsel, Elizabeth cannot turn it down. The thought that she can have a successful legal career and a life excites and intimidates her.

But when their worlds collide one day in the Advantage board room, neither Elizabeth nor John knows what’s hit them. All they know is they can’t stay away from each other.

But she’s finally making a life for herself and running her own business – a yoga studio. It’s her saving grace and that’s all she needs… until Greg Snow turns her world upside down.

Tessa and Greg have a strong attraction, but is it enough to overcome all their differences?

About the Author:
I am a born and raised small town Ohio girl, who moved to the Sunshine State after graduating from college. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in English. What college major could possibly be better than one that requires you to read novels and write about them!  After spending a year traveling, I attended law school and use that knowledge wisely. In the journey of life, became a wife and a mother of three children. So, life is always an adventure.

I love to read and write... obviously! I’m a huge sports fan, especially college football and the Ohio State Buckeyes!  Go Steelers!  Go Rays! Go Lightning! I LOVE to travel... LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to travel. And I love sharing my love to travel with my children. Did I say I love to travel? I love to drink coffee in the morning and tea at night! I love a good glass of wine, especially if it comes from a bottle made by the FOOLS wine club… yep, I’m a founding member of that crazy group!  ☺  

I love hanging out with my family and my friends!  Music makes me happy. I’m a mix between country girl and city chic. But I love nothing more than putting on my jean shorts, tank top, cowboy boots and hat and watching Tim McGraw or Eric Church belt it out!  I’m a sucker for a cowboy hat!
