Working it Out Blog Tour ~ An Excerpt

An Excerpt of Working it Out by Rachael Anderson

Seth flipped through a magazine, completely oblivious to the fact that he was about to get reacquainted with the woman he’d outbid and kissed.

Grace suddenly wanted to duck back through the door and tell her receptionist that Seth Tuttle would have to reschedule with a different therapist in a different office, and—if possible—a different state. Grace didn’t want to be anywhere near the aftermath of the chaos he was bound to cause.

As if sensing her presence, Seth lifted his head and met her gaze with striking blue eyes. She stiffened, waiting for the recognition to come.

“Are you Grace?” he said, all innocence, as though he’d never seen her before.

Grace blinked as realization struck. He didn’t recognize her. She should be thrilled by that knowledge—elated, even. Not only did it give her the opportunity for a fresh start, but it gave her the upper hand, in a way. Yet her annoyance won out. All this time, she’d stewed about that night, relived it over and over in her mind, trying to figure out where she went wrong and how she could have handled things differently. While Seth, on the other hand, had apparently forgotten all about her the moment she’d walked away.

She forced her feet forward and lifted her chin. “I take it you’re Seth Tuttle?”

“I am.” He grabbed the crutches at his side and hoisted himself up easily. Shooting the receptionist a look, he said, “Hey, my friend’s parking the car right now. When he comes in, would you mind telling him I’ve already gone in?”

“Of course. I can send him back if you’d like.”

“No, I’m sure he’d rather wait here.” Seth turned his attention to Grace and smiled. “So, you’re Grace Warren. Dr. Ross tells me you’re the best PT in the Seattle area, which I’m hoping is true. I want my knee back as soon as possible and need a PT who can bring it.”

Whether it was because he didn’t recognize her, or because he questioned her professional skills, Grace bristled. “Dr. Ross is wrong.”

Seth raised his eyebrows in question.

“I’m the best physical therapist anywhere, including Seattle.” With that, she turned on her heel and walked back through the self-closing door, not bothering to hold it open for him like she usually did for patients with crutches or wheelchairs. When the sounds of Seth struggling to get through the door reached her ears, a smile tugged at the corner of Grace’s mouth. He did say to bring it.




Author Rachael Renee Anderson

Rachael Anderson is the author of five novels (Working It Out, The Reluctant Bachelorette, Minor Adjustments, Luck of the Draw, and Divinely Designed) and two novellas (Twist of Fate, from the All I Want anthology and The Meltdown Match from The Timeless Romance Anthology: Summer Wedding Collection). She's the mother of four and is pretty good at breaking up fights, or at least sending guilty parties to their rooms. She can't sing, doesn't dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.


Working It Out

A chance encounter . . . 

Grace Warren's life is safe and predictable—exactly the way she likes it. But when she gets roped into going to an auction to help out a friend, everything changes. She meets Seth Tuttle—a guy who unexpectedly kisses her then disappears, leaving her flustered and upset. If she never sees him again, it will be too soon.



A chance for love . . . 

Weeks later, when Seth limps into Grace's rehab clinic post surgery, she immediately recognizes him. Unfortunately, he's every bit as frustrating and annoying as she remembered. Yet there's something about him that makes her second-guess her carefully placed boundaries even though he's everything she's sure she doesn't want in a man. But maybe Seth is exactly what Grace has needed all along—assuming she's willing to risk safe and predictable for a chance at love.

Book Review ~ Who R U Really? ~ A Highly Recommended Read

Who R U Really? by Margo Kelly

Thea's overprotective parents are driving her insane. They invade her privacy, ask too many questions, and restrict her online time so severely that Thea feels she has no life at all. When she discovers a new role-playing game online, Thea breaks the rules by staying up late to play. She's living a double life: on one hand, the obedient daughter; on the other, a girl slipping deeper into darkness. In the world of the game, Thea falls under the spell of Kit, an older boy whose smarts and savvy can't defeat his loneliness and near-suicidal despair. As Kit draws soft-hearted Thea into his drama, she creates a full plate of cover stories for her parents and then even her friends.

Soon, Thea is all alone in the dark world with Kit, who worries her more and more, but also seems to be the only person who really "gets" her. Is he frightening, the way he seems sometimes, or only terribly sad? Should Thea fear Kit, or pity him? And now, Kit wan…
