✯BOOK BLITZ:✯ Flipped by Lisa-Marie Cabrelli {EXCERPT + GIVEAWAY!}





Flipped by Lisa-Marie Cabrelli

Release Date: April 25th 2018 by Galahad Press
Pages: 266
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

Hazel Black is in control of her life. That is until a slimy new employee steals her work, gets her fired and ruins her chance at a partnership. Not to worry, her nutty mother, Indigo, comes to the rescue with a nutty plan… move to Italy with her and flip a house she’s just inherited under strange and unexplained circumstances. Hazel knows better than to trust any plans of Indigo’s - but what choice does she have?

Dean McLean, rich and famous action hero has developed an embarrassing problem; he faints when anyone points a camera in his direction. Quite an issue for a major movie star. When his manager bundles him off to stay with his in-laws in a small Italian mountain village, he can’t get his mind off of his endangered career. But when he meets the beautiful and irresistible Hazel everything he thought he knew turns upside down.

Will Hazel and Dean find their true home and each other? Or will a web of secrets and betrayal keep them apart?

{EXCERPT}

She slammed the shot glass on the counter and wiped a sweaty hand across her face, hard. No doubt her face was now covered in smeared mascara. “Mother, I’m not going to Italy. I have lots of very important work to do here if I plan on paying my own rent next month, let alone yours.”

“I told you, sweetie, I don’t need rent, I just…”

Hazel hung up swiftly and dropped her phone. Her stomach was a roiling sea, churning up the half-digested Snickers bar she had eaten for breakfast that morning. Probably not the best choice, but she’d been in a hurry. As she raced toward the back of the bar, she spotted a door with a ladies sign on it and charged through. It took about as long for the Snickers to come up as it had to go down, which was not long at all.

Hazel sat, dirty and shivering on the greasy tiles with her arm thrown over the toilet as though it were an old pal. She loved this toilet. It was cold and very close to her. It would never desert her. Granted, she would need about five showers before she ever felt clean again, but the icy porcelain on her head at this moment was worth the risk of cholera, or whatever horrible disease one could get from disgusting toilets.

But she couldn’t stay here forever. She couldn’t stay here, and she couldn’t go to Italy, and she couldn’t go back to work. She started to feel teary again, the vodka that remained in her stomach was making her head spin and her sadness swell. She was sad, this was sad. She couldn’t sit in a dive bar bathroom with a toilet as her best pal for the rest of the day. She had to take action. She had to figure out what to do next. But right now her fuzzy mind wasn’t cooperating. She needed five showers. She needed a plan. She needed $20,000 for the equity buy-in because she couldn’t lose this partnership. Samuel was guaranteed to screw up the project, then Liz would do her magic, and Blackwell & Crawley would offer her the partnership! Right?

She turned to her best porcelain pal for approval, and suddenly there were two of them bouncing up and down in front of her. They must be nodding.
