Blog Tour Excerpt & Giveaway - Ember's Center by Jillian Jacobs

Ember’s Center
by Jillian Jacobs
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Green Moose Productions

Book Description:
She spent her life fighting for middle ground, and now that she’s found it, she’ll fight for her life.

Ember Brooks yearns for an end to the dark chapters of her life—abusive mother, negligent father, teenage trauma, and sibling suicide. Determined to escape her traumatic past, Ember is finally headed for solid ground, gathering strength and balance with the help of her trusted counselor and friend, Xander Kane.

Still reeling from the death of her brother, Ember finds solace when Manchester Marauders center, Owen Killion goes on the offensive and barrels into her life. Both on the football field and off, Owen is sure-footed and confident. With his domineering presence and reliable nature, he alters her game-plan. But for a girl continually left on the sidelines, can she leave her heart on the line?

When Ember is the victim of increasingly dangerous incidents, and Xander changes the course of their relationship, once more her life spirals out of control.

Ember trusts Owen to guard their love, but when someone else is calling the shots, can they reach the end zone or will they fumble?

Owen could only stare. On the floor was his redhead, wearing high-heeled black leather boots with a red sweater dress that accentuated every curve—every well-rounded, sweet Jesus curve. He took her arm, helped her to her feet, and patted her butt. An automatic reaction on the playing field, but the pat made her gasp and swat at his hand.

“Owen, what are you doing?” Maude slapped his shoulder. “She’s not one of your teammates. I’m so sorry for my brother’s manners.”

“Ish fine,” Ember slurred.

Well, well, his woman was drunk off her ass.
