New Release Spotlight & Review: Falling Into Drew by Harriet Schultz

(from Goodreads)

She stumbled. He caught her. 
She didn’t know who he was until she saw his face in a magazine. 

When New York book editor Kate Porter trips and falls into Drew O’Connor’s arms, she has no idea that the man with the drop-dead looks is an Olympic champion skier, the face of famous luxury brands, and a serial dater of models and actresses. Their attraction is immediate but neither does anything about it. He rides off on his Harley and she returns to her office. 

The chemistry between them is undeniable when Drew’s agent brings his reluctant client to Kate’s office a few weeks later to pitch a book about his life. As they move forward, their sexual tension makes it difficult to maintain a professional distance. The relationship quickly heats up, but Drew’s fame, dark past, and a life-changing secret test their feelings for each other.

Only $0.99 / £0.95 Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th September only!!

A new novel by Harriet Schultz was too much of a temptation to pass up. Falling Into Drew is a standalone contemporary romance.

Ten years have passed since Andrew 'Drew' O'Connor last competed as a world-class downhill skier. 
Represented by his marketing savvy friend/PR agent Charles Morrison he's much in-demand with lucrative contracts endorsing high-profile products as well working as a sports commentator. As a result, he's highly sought by the paparazzi as he's frequently seen with an array of beautiful women when leaving nightspots frequented by celebrities. When he literally picks up a woman in church after breaking her fall, he can't believe he walked away from her without taking her number because, for the first time in years, she's a woman he wants to get to know on a personal level.

Ekaterina 'Kate' Porter is instantly attracted to the tall, black leather clad man after he catches her fall during a visit to St. Patrick's Cathedral. She later learns the identity of the mystery guy after seeing his image in the gossip column of a glossy magazine. When a PR agent rings with a tentative inquiry about an autobiography deal he's trying to establish for his A-list sporting client, her interest piqued as well as irked, when the name of the client isn't revealed. As a book editor with Atlas Publishing, she secretly hopes that the mystery athlete is the male currently dominating her dreams.

I dived in blind without any expectations and as with other books by this author, several twists throughout the plot keep the addictive narrative captivating. The protagonists are intriguing especially Drew because he's certainly a man who isn't what he seems...even to himself. Many challenges need confronting and I love it when an author chooses to make her hero and heroine intelligent; people who can work through difficult situations in a mature and not too dramatic way; without lots of verbal ping pong!
A mini plot that runs parallel with Drew and Kate's and I do wonder if this is setting the scene for a sequel. Although the ends are tied up in a satisfactory way, there's definitely a feeling of 'there is more to tell.' Of course, it could simply be wishful thinking on my part! Oh, and there's Mike Fielding too…!

Overall, this is fun, sexy book that kept me turning the pages as fast as I could read them. If you've not picked up a book by Ms. Schultz before then Falling Into Drew is a great place to start.

***book bought and paid for by myself***

One of the best parts of writing novels is the chance to immerse myself in the world of my characters. Now that the third and final book of the Legacy Series is finished, I'm going to miss Alexandra, Diego, Danielle, Sebastián and Serge. These characters have lived in my imagination through three full-length novels and one short story and so it will be hard to let them continue their lives without me.

As a journalist for many years (Harper's and TIME magazines), I rarely heard from readers unless they were angry about something I'd written. One of my greatest thrills as a novelist is knowing that so many readers love the stories I've created. I'm grateful to each and every person who's read my books. You can email me at:
