Stuck With You blurb release!

Stuck With You - A novel by Jessica Kate

Stuck With You

Kimberly Foster and Samuel Payton can only agree on two things:

  1. they love their best friend/cousin, Aussie dairy farmer Jules Hogan, and
  2. they cannot stand each other.

The pair run up-and-coming Virginia-based youth ministry ‘Asylum’, founded to be a ‘safe place with crazy love’ for dozens of struggling teenagers.

Kimberly wants nothing more than to be accepted as a part of a team, and shows it by devising an expansion plan that will take Asylum to the next level.

However, Sam’s taken risks before—and almost destroyed his family’s business in the process. Kimberly will have to pry Asylum out of his cold, dead fingers before he lets this high-stakes plan swing into action.

When Jules is injured on her Australian farm and unable to work, both cash in their long-overdue vacation days and fly Down Under to help out.

However, Jules’ recovery will take weeks and her financial situation is scarier than the statistics on Australian spider bites.

Stuck on the other side of the world in the middle of nowhere, Sam and Kimberly have no one to rely on but each other as they attempt to save Jules’s livelihood.

Stuck With You is a sassy romance about life and love when the risks don’t pan out . . . and when they do.

BONUS sneak peek at Hating Jeremy Walters

Thanks for the likes and shares, folks! Here’s a paragraph from the first conversation between the hero and heroine, Jeremy and Natalie:

[Jeremy to Natalie] “You saw me drooling on the footpath.”

She blinked.

He offered a small smile. “Let’s start over. Hi.”

“Let’s not. Goodbye.” She spun toward the door.

“Is that my phone you’re holding?”

Natalie turned back.

He breathed a small sigh of relief. “What are you doing here, anyway?”

The phone flew his way. He fumbled it against his chest, one-handed.

She crossed her arms. “You still had me as your emergency contact, and I couldn’t reach Steph or Mike.” Her eyes flickered down. “I wasn’t sure about calling your dad.”

Natalie Groves was meant for great things. Preferably youth ministry with a side gig as an M&M connoisseur.

But half a year after her fiancé left, Natalie’s evangelist father was diagnosed with cancer. Her grand plans evaporated…and God has seemed disappointed ever since.

Six years later a church internship presents Natalie a chance at her destiny, but she needs a job to work around it. And the only offer is worse than a life sentence of tofu.

Six years ago, Jeremy ‘Jem’ Walters left Charlottesville, Virginia to escape his father, God, and heartbreak over Natalie.

Now he’s back in town, a committed Christian, and desperate for help with his infant son and troubled teenage niece.

When Natalie and Jem join forces, sparks fly. But will they be burned in the process?
