Want It: Rule Breakers # 3 by Jennifer Chance

Want It
Rule Breakers # 3
By: Jennifer Chance
Releasing December 9th, 2014

In the latest tantalizing Rule Breakers novel from Jennifer Chance, an irresistible alpha male follows his ex into a deadly standoff—and reignites a heated affair.
For Erin Connelly, being a good girl isn’t such a bad thing. She’s working her dream job at a Boston art gallery and staying out of trouble, which is more than she can say for her deadbeat mom. Unfortunately, her mother’s latest misadventure lands her in the clutches of a Mexican drug lord. Now the only person who can save her is the one man Erin has no business asking for help: the sexy-as-sin army ranger who just so happens to be her former high school sweetheart.
Zander James is no gentleman—and no officer, either, thanks to Erin. Four years ago, she made a call that terminated his highest aspirations . . . and their relationship. He’s never forgiven her, but when he learns that Erin’s embarking on a half-baked rescue mission, he sure as hell can’t let her go alone. Now, with a treacherous enemy lying in wait, the electrifying tension between them may just be Zander’s undoing. Because while he may be able to keep Erin alive, he can’t promise to keep his hands off her.

Excerpt (From Chapter One)

Clare’s Blog 2: The Haven 12/3 and Ellesea Loves Reading 12/26
You can do this.
Erin’s heart was already slamming against her ribcage when she reached Zander’s brothers, murmuring her prepared words—“I’m sorry for your loss. He was a good man.”—as she moved quickly past them. Even if they remembered her, they had that glazed-over look that indicated they’d already seen way too many people today, and she was simply another face in the crowd. Not too surprising. The brothers had both been in their late twenties when she’d known Zander, and deployed for most of that time. His sister, Karen, recognized her immediately, however. She was only six years older than Zander. It had seemed like an impossible age difference four years ago, but now, not so much. And as Karen turned to see Erin approach, her gaze flashed with open curiosity. “Erin,” she said, nodding. Her manner seemed cool, though, perfunctory, and Erin rushed into the exact explanation she’d just convinced herself she didn’t need to give.
“I’m so sorry, Karen,” she said, drawing on every ounce of serene, professional distance she’d learned from putting her own work up to scrutiny week after week in art school. “Your mom let me know about the funeral. I—”
“No, no—thank you for being here, of course.” Karen didn’t cut her off as much as give her an out, but Erin shut up anyway. Wow, this was maybe the dumbest idea ever. Zander wasn’t going to help her. Zander probably never wanted to see her again. No one in his family did. It was only what she deserved.
She wondered if he ever thought about her anymore. If he still blamed her for everything that had happened that last summer. Not that he shouldn’t, of course. But still, Zander hadn’t known all that she’d been dealing with back then, hadn’t known what his crazy, out-of-control antics were costing her every time she saw him put himself in danger—put others in danger. Back then, no one knew how much of a train wreck her life really was.
She still didn’t want anyone to know.

Author Interview

Hello, Suzy! Thank you so much for interviewing me today. ☺ I’m excited that you are part of the tour (and I love your site!) Since the holidays are crazy, let’s just jump right in!.

It's my pleasure, Jennifer! Great to have you here :)
Tell me. Do dreams ever inspire your writing? What did you last dream about?

Dreams FREQUENTLY inspire my writing. In fact, two different stories I’ve written have been the result of a dream. My last dream, sadly, had me traveling with my best friend and we (randomly) were being chased by special forces operatives… no idea why. But this could be coming to a book plot near you soon! ☺

When did you first start writing? And when were you first published?
I first started writing when I was about 10 or 11 years old—what we would call “Fan Fiction” today. I was first published in 2013 in Young Adult historical (under the name Jennifer McGowan), and my first romance was published this year!

What is it about 'chick lit' that appeals to you the most? Do you read other genres?
I read many other genres, but I think “chick lit” is interesting because it’s about the woman’s journey as much as the romance. You get to travel with the heroine on her own voyage of discovery.

Can you tell us a little about your latest book?

Absolutely! WANT IT is the story of artist and new-grad Erin Connelly who needs a hero—badly—but the only one available is her ex-boyfriend turned Army Ranger Zander James. He’s hot and he’s capable, but he also hates her. Which makes asking him for help to save her mom all that much more difficult. But having no other choice, she does. . . and discovers that having a hero on her hands is an adventure waiting to happen.

What inspired you to write it?

This story actually grew out of the characters. Once I latched onto Zander as being Erin’s ex boyfriend—and a military hero as well—his story fell into place. WANT IT has more “action-adventure” than my other books, but was so much fun to write!

Have you ever spotted anyone reading your books anywhere?
Ha! I have not—yet! But my books are available only via ebook right now, so it’s a little more difficult to tackle someone to see what’s on her Kindle. ☺

Who designs your covers?

The team at Random House created the cover look for the Rule Breakers books—and they keep getting better and better!

If your latest book was made into a film, who would you cast?
Great question! For Erin, I would probably go with Natalie Portman, and for Zander… Channing Tatum! Because, why not?

What's your favourite Chick Lit book that made it to the big screen?
The one I’m curious to see is the adaptation of Austenland… but I heard the movie wasn’t terribly good, so maybe I should just fan-fic that one in my head. ☺

What were the last two books you read?
Ha! You don’t want to know—they were research books for some upcoming projects and are pretty daggone dark. On the fiction front, I’ve been hooked on James Rollins for a few months now—reading his entire series!

Name one female author who you think deserves to be better known.
Bria Quinlan. She writes funny, emotional adult and YA love stories that I absolutely adore. Her amazon page is here.

Where do you write?
Usually on the couch---unless I’m in a recliner, or on my bed, or (gasp!) at my desk. I have also been known to write in coffee shops and breakfast diners, and occasionally in the car. Sometimes even while driving, but only under duress!

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? And did you follow the dream?
An author! And yes, I did. It took awhile, but I got there!

In the movie of your life, who would play you?
Tina Fey—because it would need to be someone with a sense of humor. ☺

Speed Round...
Top drink to make you tipsy?
Shopaholic or shopadon't? Shopadon’t—I’m a Buy-ologist.
Sky high heels or closer to the ground? Closer to the ground unless I am just standing—not walking.
E.L. James or Jilly Cooper? Jilly Cooper? Only because she’s new to me! ☺
Cry baby or tough cookie? Cry baby at anything emotional. I’m a sap.
Exotic beach or enchanted forest? BEACH. Hands…wait a minute. Enchanted? Okay, fine, enchanted forest.
