Giveaway: Clear as Glass by Lynn Kellan
Posted by brriske
Poised to become her overbearing father’s right-hand man, Jaye Davis is tired of being a faceless drone, writing software. She’d rather help real people—like the family who owns a struggling glassblowing factory in rural Pennsylvania. While she’s there, she might figure out how to squash the secrets gnawing at her.
Mitchell Blake and his father keep butting heads about expanding Blake Glassware, and now Mitch has to deal with his father’s consultant, Jaye. She claims online marketing will boost sales, but Mitch insists broadening their product line will increase revenue. Arguing with this doe-eyed woman makes one thing perfectly clear: she has the power to shatter his safe, lonely life.
Jaye’s got four weeks to save his glassblowing factory, but he detests her marketing plan. She’s got no place to live, but he has an extra bedroom in his house. She’s got secrets, but living with a glassblower who can see right through her would be an enormous mistake…or would it?
Jaye is a young woman trying to prove her worth to her father and herself. She accepts a job in upstate NY, away from her home, in order to recover from a relationship gone bad and her father’s lack of emotions. Picture the perfect meeting set up, flat tire, endless woods, damsel in distress. Now picture the perfect alpha male, 6 foot, 200 pounds, ex football player, coming to save the day. What happens? Jaye hits Mitch in the crotch with a flashlight, because he may be a sex crazed serial killer!
The dialogue between Jaye and Mitch is so funny. Embarrassing things that happen in everyday life are mentioned, made fun of and dealt with, like accidentally spitting food out across the dinner table! The romance was hot and it really didn’t get specific until the end of the book!
The descriptions in the book were written like poetry. Jaye dabbles in photography and the descriptions of the photos made them come alive. Mitch is a glass blower and the process could have been just explained and left dull. The descriptions used to describe the glass blowing were wonderfully rich. The reader was made to feel the heat in the room! I have witnessed glass blowing and the descriptions were spot on. Liquid glass is beautiful.
I loved this story. The characters are so likable. I wish there could have been a scene between Mitch and the ex, David. I would have loved to see that. Reading this story helps you connect with all the positive feelings of love and sacrifice. I highly recommend this book!
This book is for an adult (18+) audience due to descriptions of sex.
I’m giving this book 5 fangs.
