Tari Lynn Jewett lives in Southern California with her husband of nearly thirty years (also known as Hunky Hubby). They have three amazing sons, a board game designer, a sound engineer and a musician, all who live nearby. For more than fifteen years she wrote freelance for magazines and newspapers, wrote television commercials, radio spots, numerous press releases, and many, MANY PTA newsletters. As much as she loved writing those things, she always wanted to write fiction…and now she is.
She also believes in happily ever afters…because she’s living hers.
Tari’s giving away one signed paperback copy of her first romantic comedy, #PleaseSayYes. For a change to win Tari’s book all you have to do is leave a comment on one of her posts this month (July 2019). There are, or course, a few rules:
The Beach Break Coffee Bar was crowded and the girls squeezed through the throng of people to get to the table Evan was holding for them.
“It’s nice to be connected.” Ashley said as she slid into the seat next to Lucy.
Lucy smiled and started to respond just as Ashley smacked her on the arm. “Nooo,” she groaned. “That’s him over there.”
All three of her friends turned to look in the direction she’d pointed. Five good looking guys sat at a table laughing and drinking beer.
“Which one is he?” Mindi asked.
“He’s the jerky one.”
“You’ll have to be a little more descriptive.” Randi said. “I mean, they all look pretty friendly to me.”
“The one in the grey T-shirt. Don’t let that boyish smile fool you. He’s not nice.”
“I don’t know,” Mindi said. “I think he looks very nice. Look at the way that shirt hugs his biceps. Wish he’d turn this way so I could get a better look at his face.”
“What’s his name?” Randi had to raise her voice to be heard over the band who had moved back onto the stage and were warming up their instruments.
“Officer Lopez,” Ashley answered, trying to be heard over the music.
“What?” Randi raised her voice again.
“Officer Lopez!” Ashley said loudly just as the band stopped and the coffee bar buzz dropped to a din.
Officer Lopez and his buddies all turned to see who had shouted his name, and the lead singer of Reflective Lenses who was already standing in front of the mic picked it up.
“Officer Benny Lopez, you’re not even in the band, and cute girls are shouting your name. How’d you do that?”
Laughter rippled through the little coffee bar and Ashley considered crawling under the table.
“It’s okay Ashley,” Lucy said, “Evan just had a new refrigerator delivered. I’ll go get the box. We can smuggle you out of here without anyone seeing you!”
At least Randi tried to hide her smile, but Mindi made no effort to contain her amusement.
