Awkward and Thoroughly Kissable

New Feature!

clem-onojeghuo-400043 We're closing in on the home stretch here folks. And with any book launch reviews!

You guys, I got my first real review this week! And it was kind of awesome. The good folks at RT Book Reviews got ahold of The Pick Up, and I think they kinda liked it!

"Temple’s debut is a slice-of-life romance firmly rooted in the small town and domestic. Full of snippets of family life and dinner conversations between friends, The Pick Up is cozy and sweet, and the developing relationship between a parent and teacher contains compelling psychological realism. It’s well written, although at times its wholehearted embrace of the quotidian felt like it needed a bit of spicing up. This is the first in the Up Red Creek series. Readers are sure to enjoy it for its lovable cast of characters and sheer heart."

And because good news should be shared, I've set up a review page, so we can share the love! If you read The Pick Up and love it, tag me, so I can boost you and your kind words in the process!

This is your friendly reminder that The Pick Up is out March 5, but if you pre-order the e-copy it from Riptide now, you'll get it 48 hours early!
