Sneak Peek Wednesday: Love on the Line by Kirsten Fullmer (Giveaway)

Love on the Line
(Women at Work #1)
by Kirsten Fullmer
Publisher: Self-published
Publication date: June 14, 2017
Genre: New Adult Romance

Romance on the job will ruin Andrea’s credibility and she knows it, so why can’t she ignore that cocky foreman the crew calls Rooster?

Andy may not have pipeline know-how, per se, but she’s got brains and a willingness to prove that she can do the job. Her estranged grandpa, Buck, believes she has what it takes to be his engineering assistant, and she’s not about to let him down.

Rooster isn’t a bad guy. He respects women; he was raised by one of the best. But that new girl is too small and… feminine. She’s a distraction, plain and simple, and she doesn’t belong on a pipeline. This job is his chance to impress Buck Brennan, a pipeline legend, and no girly greenhorn is going to ruin it for him.

Will Andy prove herself to her grandfather and forge a relationship with the old man, or will continuous disagreements and unexpected sexual tension between Andy and Rooster derail their hard work?

 

 

Sneak Peek

Nick swatted at a mosquito as he watched Andy approach. From his vantage point on the bending machine he could see she was frowning. “Hey, girl, what’s up?”

Andy huffed up to the machine. “Nick,” she mumbled in greeting.

“What’s wrong?”

Tugging the water bottle from her back pocket, she twisted off the cap. “Nothing.”

“Come on, tell me,” he encouraged, climbing down to get a better look.

She took a long pull from the bottle, then twisted the cap back on. “Just the usual garbage.”

“Like what?”

She pouted, staring down the right-of-way. Finally, she turned back to Nick. “Have you heard any rumors about me?”

His head jerked back. “Rumors? Like what?”

“You know, gossip. Bad things the guys say about me.”

He scratched his head, tipping his hard hat to one side. “I don’t think so.”

She sniffed, her lip curling in dismissal.

Nicks shoulder’s slumped and he grimaced. “What did you hear?”

Andy kicked at a dirt clod, sending up a poof of dust.

“Come on,” he encouraged. “Tell me.”

“Fine,” she snapped. “Did you hear that I work nights down at the Blue Moon, as a stripper?” Her hip cocked, as she waited for his response.

“Oh that.” He laughed. “Yeah, I heard that.”

“Nick!” she exclaimed, tossing her hands in the air. “Don’t you think that’s something bad?”

“Well,” he hedged, his grin fading. “That’s just—”

“Why would they say that?” she lamented. “I’ve been so careful.”

He rubbed his chin, his eyes darting from her to the right-of-way and back. “That’s just cuz— you’re hot,” he finally stuttered.

“Unbelievable,” she said, waving at the bee hovering around her head.

“Nobody takes that stuff seriously,” he offered, his expression hopeful.

Andy turned to continue down the right-of-way. “They better not!” she called over her shoulder.

Nick sighed and adjusted his hard hat.

“What did she want?” one of the nearby hands asked Nick.

The foreman watched the younger man hungrily ogle Andy as she walked away. “None-a-your business,” he snapped. “Did you get that pipe stretcher I asked for?”

The worker’s face fell. “Pipe stretcher?”

Nick scowled down at him. “I told you to get it an hour ago,” he hollered. “They’re in the back of my truck. They got green handles on ‘em, now go! Go!”

The younger man jumped into action, sprinting down the right-of-way toward Nick’s truck.

“Dumbass,” Nick muttered under his breath.

“Did you just send him for the pipe stretcher?” another worker asked with a chuckle.

“What’s it to you?” Nick grumbled, still off put by Andy’s situation.

The hand hunched his shoulders. “Nothing. We all fell for that one when we were green.”

“Well, looking for it will keep him busy for a while,” Nick huffed, turning to climb back onto the bending machine.
