Anyone in a relationship has faced tough times. The beginning of a romance is all pink hearts and butterfly kisses but that is often replaced by reminders to take out the garbage or picking up after the kids. All of the other parts of your life sometimes zap the romance out of your relationship.
I love that Author Julie Navickas doesn't brush the tough times aside. She shines a light on those challenges and gives readers a happy ending to embrace. In the final book in the Trading Heartbeats Trilogy- I'LL LOVE YOU TOMORROW, the married hero and heroine deal with all the junk that gets in the way of the romance.
Lauren and Mitch have always known they should be together. Their love was spontaneous and comfortable. They fit together. Their life was magical...until it wasn't. Over time responsibilities forced them to drift apart.
This story really spoke to me. I've been married before to my high school sweetheart and our romance was one I thought would last forever. Sadly, we couldn't put our life back together but it only made me cheer all that louder for Lauren and Mitch. Trust me.... you will want to grab a copy of this story for yourself! And lucky for you... it's out now!!
Las Vegas. The city of lights, smiles, and memories.
Lauren Templeton knew at six-years-old she would one day marry Mitch Benson. He began earning the title of soulmate the moment he let her cut in line for the swing set. Twenty years later and Mitch sealed the deal at a cheap Vegas wedding chapel. That night, the modest diamond on her finger shined brighter than all the lights in Sin City.
But as the honeymoon years of wedded bliss fade, Mitch pulls away without reason. Confused and hurt by his sudden change of heart, Lauren pours every ounce of her soul into Pier Ninety-Two—her once swanky, now barely surviving restaurant in downtown Los Angeles.
When Pier Ninety-Two burns to the ground in a grease fire, Lauren is left with nothing but sorrow, legal consequences, and a failing marriage. She reels from the sudden, heartbreaking losses—and mourns the life and love she once shared with Mitch. Fueled by the flame of injustice, Lauren stacks her chips, ready to risk it all on red, consequences be damned. After all, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
Jump right into the final book in the Trading Heartbeats trilogy! While each story can be read as a standalone, common characters are woven throughout each book that will leave you pining for more. Julie Navickas’ stories are full of raw emotion, heart-stopping plot twists, and have no shortage of flawed heroes.
You won’t want to miss a beat in this trilogy!
Mitch closed his eyes as the air left his lungs. His vision darkened, fogging all coherent thoughts in his brain. Her floral perfume invaded his nose, the sweet scent both calming and relaxing.
That can’t be lavender.
As he opened his eyes, his heartbeat increased as a blonde curl tickled his cheek. “You can’t be here for a story, Tess. My last name isn’t Templeton,” he whispered, and tugged at the hem of her shirt as her lips continued their pursuit of passion. His fingers glided along the smooth skin at her waist.
This is so wrong. What am I doing?
She sighed. “It’s shitty watching the person you love find happiness in someone--or something—else,” she murmured in his ear, nipping his lobe with her teeth. “And I think… that’s something we also share in common.”
You see right through me.
Her fingers dipped below his t-shirt, traveling along his chest as her hips rocked on top of him.
Sputtering for air, Mitch gripped her hands and halted their exploration. Her ragged breaths competed with the creeks of the floorboards, the house seemingly settling in with each echo.
“I did want another article,” she whispered, her gaze finding his as her hands obeyed captivity. She shook her head, and forced the loose curls from her face. “But now, Mitch Benson, I think I just want you instead.”
The blood pounded in his veins, forcing a ringing in his ears to overcome her soft voice. The world muffled as she resumed rocking against his pelvis, the pressure and friction clouding his mind as pleasure superseded all rational thought.
His body tingled, bolts of shivers shooting along his skin like a sudden summer storm, gaining momentum in hurried seconds.
“We shouldn’t be doing this. I shouldn’t be doing this,” he choked out.
