Loveland, Colorado is a special place all year around, a community of creativity and art, with scenic views and majestic mountains. But the town really shines once a year, on Valentine’s Day.
Lucky Roberts has lived in Loveland his whole life. He has good friends, strong family support, and is all about keeping his community fun and alive. The only thing Lucky has been “unlucky” with is love. But rather than avoiding February fourteenth in his hometown, he throws himself into helping others deliver their messages of love.
Enter Jack Canon. Jack moved to Loveland for a fresh start, in both his personal and professional lives. After a tough year, he’s finally hoping to just blend in, maybe carve a little niche for himself that his parents would have been proud of. What he didn’t expect was a pseudo-lumberjack with a killer body and shy smile to turn his world upside down – and he sure didn’t expect to like it so much.
When Lucky meets Jack, he feels like a thirteen year-old with his first crush. He’s clumsy, stammering, and the first greeting out of his mouth is a less than articulate, “Wow!” Words like adorable and manbun suddenly become part of his vocabulary as he discovers a deep, hidden need to romance the hell out of Jack.
And what better way to do that than during the most romantic season in the City of Love?
This is a super cute, fun and quick read. I really enjoyed meeting Lucky and Jack. They are so well matched. Lucky just makes me want to gather him up and snuggle hum. He’s so wonderfully awkward. He’s so well written. I loved how endearing he is and a pillar of his community. Jack has more story to tell. We get some in this book and I love how detailed his background is. But he’s just coming into himself by the end of the book. The emotions are so well written though. Oh my gosh you just get caught up in this story and are taken for a ride that you kind of forget your surroundings. I cannot wait for the next book in this series!
Molly: What music, if any do you listen to when you write?
K-Lee: I do listen to music, but it really depends what I’m writing at the time. With my Unbreak My Heart series, I listen exclusively to Christian Kane because he inspired my main character and because it’s a cowboy story. For romantic scenes, somehow the Backstreet Boys or One Direction end up on my playlist, and for the hot and sexy, it’s rock like Seether, Red Hot Chili Peppers or Three Day’s Grace.
Molly: Are you a full time writer, or part time writer?
K-Lee: If you mean do I have another job – no. I was a full-time mom for over twenty years and raised three (now grown) kids. I volunteered at the school almost every day and was the star hockey mom, too. Because I have severe depression and another disorder, I couldn’t work outside the house, but once my kids were grown, I started writing. I’d like to call my self full-time but I’m not quite disciplined enough for that yet.
Molly: Do you hope to one day be a full time writer?
K-Lee: For me, the difference between what I’m doing now and being full-time is scheduling my writing time and that’s something I haven’t quite got a handle on yet. But I’m trying.
Molly: Do you have a word count per day you try to hit?
K-Lee: Right now I’m transitioning into a self-published author so my deadlines are strictly my own which isn’t always a good idea. Lol. When I have a real deadline, I can manage a word count goal, but generally I’m more sporadic. I can write 34,000 words in two weeks then nothing for another two. I seem to work best under pressure, as well—when I have a deadline looming, I write like a mad woman.
Molly: When you finish writing a book, how long before you begin writing the next one?
K-Lee: I’ve never been someone who writes one book at a time. I always have at least three WIPs going so it’s not a problem starting a new book. The problem usually lies in which book to work on at any given time, and sometimes it’s those bossy characters in my head that make the decision for me.
K-Lee Klein has lived in one part of Western Canada or another for her entire life. She’s a doting mother of three now-grown kids, and has had characters and plots running around her head for as long as she can remember.
She lives with an patient husband who totally does not get her thing for gay men, two spoiled but wonderful sons (who don’t get it either), and two also spoiled, but beautiful cats. Her days are also filled with many texts and phone calls with her daughter who has already left the nest, and an abundance of fabulous gay men, large and small, bouncing off the walls of her skull, competing for their turns to tell their stories.
After finally throwing caution to the wind, K-lee’s first story was accepted and published in December of 2011, and since then she’s been lucky enough to be picked up by several publishers. She’s thrilled to be substituting her previous jobs as a hockey manager/coach, school band volunteer and overall chauffeur with her passion for writing beautiful, emotional men.
Among her favorite sub-genres are rockstars, cowboys, shifters, and opposites-attract relationships. But to be honest, she’s open to almost anything if it involves messing around in the heads of her characters. She’s also big on series–because she has a hard time letting her characters go–and is usually working on a handful of stories in various stages of completion all at the same time.
