Effortless With You: Cover Reveal

You know how it is when you're waiting for something exciting to happen? It's as though the hour glass gets clogged up and all those seconds and minutes are stuck in the upper half, unable to trickle through, dragging out the coming event until it's almost painful? Yeah, that. That's how it's been while  waiting for my opportunity to present the cover reveal for my good friend, and critique partner, Lizzy Charles' new book EFFORTLESS WITH YOU (formerly titled Primer).  But finally, here we are, the 26th of June, 2013... the hour glass is unplugged and those seconds and minutes are not just trickling but flooding through, pushing us toward her release date (Swoon, Fall 2013) . 

So, take a moment to Oooo and Aaaaah over this awesome cover and to work up your reading appetite for this incredible Young Adult Contemporary. Trust me, I KNOW it's incredible, because I'm one of the people she chose to beta read for her. It was one of those books that had me ignoring my phone, my laundry, my kids, and even my dog (and that's saying a lot)! Now, now...don't be jealous, just be ready to buy it on release day. Go ahead, set a reminder on your phone, mark it on your calendar, do whatever you have to do to ensure you don't miss being one of the first lucky people to get to read EFFORTLESS WITH YOU, by Lizzy Charles.

Effortless With You
School is out and Lucy is ready for the perfect summer: lazy days at the pool, invitations to the most exclusive parties, and romantic dates with her hot new boyfriend. That is, until she lands in trouble one too many times and her parents issue the ultimate punishment: a summer job. Suddenly, the summer can't end fast enough.
To make matters worse, the job is painting houses with Justin, the most popular, egotistical guy in school. Spending all summer with Justin might be other girls' dreams, but definitely not Lucy's. After all, Justin is cocky, annoying, and a jerk. So what if he's the most beautiful jerk Lucy's ever seen? Or that his grin makes her forget she’s mad at the world? Or that maybe, just maybe, there's more to Justin than Lucy realizes. Only one thing is certain: it won’t be the summer she wanted, but it might be exactly the one she needs.
About Lizzy
When Lizzy Charles isn’t scrambling to raise her two spunky toddlers or caring for premature and sick babies as a neonatal intensive care nurse, she’s in a quiet corner writing or snuggled up with a novel and a few squares of dark chocolate. Black tea keeps her constant and she loves guacamole. She married her high school sweet heart, a heart-melting musician, so it’s no surprise she’s fallen in love with writing contemporary YA romance novels.
