Crinkles All the Way by @anntrader5 is a Christmas and Holiday Festival pick #romance #giveaway



Title: Crinkles All the Way


Author: Ann M. Trader


Genre: Contemporary Romance, Christmas Romance


Book Blurb:


Benny O’Brien owns his reputation—carefree bachelor and successful computer design engineer with one of Atlanta’s premier firms. In keeping with the Christmas spirit, he agrees to teach a middle school coding club as a favor to a coworker. He expects to debug computer statements...not his heart.


As the new public relations coordinator at the firm, Claudia Banks spends her days strategizing market segments and her evenings relaxing with her close-knit group of girlfriends…or curling up with a favorite book. When her office crush signs on to her school outreach program, she braces for a lesson in irresistible attraction.


The stakes rise when the two come together over the school’s Christmas dance and a mysterious scrapbook. As secrets tug at their hearts, will they choose honesty and go all in for love?


Excerpt:

Benny gazed at the delicate curve of her lips on the rim of her glass and leaned forward. “Are you kidding? I can’t wait for dance lesson number two. How does tomorrow afternoon sound?”


“Whatever you say. After all, you are the one in charge of fun.” Claudia put her glass down and folded her arms on the tabletop.


“Consider me your personal fun coach.”


She smiled, flashing her dimples. “I’ll be sure to add that one to the list.”


Oh, hell. This ought to be good. He quirked an eyebrow.


“You know, the list.” Claudia raised her hand in the shape of a ball. “One, you swim like a fish, good enough to get a scholarship at Georgia Tech. Two, you glide across the dance floor like one of those ballroom dancers on TV.”


Benny shifted his feet beneath the table, his gaze never leaving hers.


“Three, you’ve published at least a half dozen articles in leading technology journals.”


“To be fair, I co-authored them. With Clay.”


She smiled, raising the next finger, undeterred. “Four, the Sweet Georgia Magnolia blog named you a top twenty bachelor. And five, you’re clearly the master of fun.” She fanned her open palm in the air and tossed her hair behind her shoulders. The sparkle in her eyes left him light-headed, mesmerized. “Dare I ask, is there anything Benny O’Brien can’t do?”

Author Biography:


I enjoy spending time with my family, trying out new recipes, and relaxing on my back porch to read and write. These days I take walks around my neighborhood, but when I was sixteen, I hiked the Grand Canyon with a group of friends. I love watching television dramas (in no special order: House of the Dragon, Stranger Things, The Gilded Age, The Last Kingdom, 1883, Outlander, Emily in Paris, Succession, Andor, Yellowstone, Outer Banks, and Peaky Blinders) and reading a great romance book.
