Here’s a little something new and different. To celebrate the release of “Faking It,” by Elisa Lorello, I’ve got my totally-craving-spring hands on a giveaway for you: flower delivery service California Blooms is donating 1 dozen roses to a Smart Bitches, Trashy Books reader located in the continental U.S. The winner will also get a free copy of FAKING IT! If you win, you can have the flowers and book sent to yourself (who doesn’t want a dozen roses and hot read delivered to her door?) or someone you love.
Faking It by Elisa Lorella is about Andi, a composition and rhetoric professor, who breaks off her engagement and moves home to Long Island to start her life and career over. Then she meets Devin, a male escort whose client list seems to include at least half of the accomplished women she knows. Devin is totally handsome and charming (and quite out of her league) but Andi senses something underneath his sexy exterior that fascinates her. So she proposes a “teaching” arrangement: each of them will educate the other in what they know best. Devin will teach Andi to be a better lover, and she’ll teach him to be a writer.
That’s right, it’s all about conjugation up in here. Awwww yeah.
Yes, this giveaway is US only (sorry about that – if I could send flowers to you wherever you are, I totally would, unless you live in one of those luscious tropical countries with flowers all over the place and would look at one more bloom as a reason to screech). All you have to do is leave a comment with what you think is the sexiest verb (in any language), and you’re entered to win. Comments will be open for 48 hours, and standard disclaimers apply: I’m not being compensated for this giveaway. I really like flowers. No animals were disturbed in the writing of this entry. Objects in mirror are closer than they appear (and may also be bigger, too – woo!) Yes, verbs totally are sexy. They are the sexytimes of the parts of speech.
