Proud Mom of a US Coast Guard Recruit @USCG

I don’t often publish personal posts, since I try to keep my blog primarily about my books, but it’s an emotional time at my house, and I want to share this moment. My husband and I said farewell to our son James at Fort Dix, NJ, and watched him swear the oath of service as a US Coast Guard recruit before heading to boot camp. Every parent and spouse in the room became teary-eyed as we watched our loved one lift a hand to take the vow. It’s an experience and an honor I’ll never forget.

I’m excited for my son, and proud, and wish him all the best as he embarks on an adventurous life of service to our country and its citizens. I hope you’ll join me in wishing him well.

About the Story:

Praise for Hook Me Up

“Hook Me Up by Adele Downs warmed my heart. Being a cat lover lol I couldn’t pass up the chance to read about the ‘damsel in distress with her kitten’ to be rescued by the hottest fireman in the city. How can you go wrong with kitties and a handsome hero?” 5 Stars! ~ Ravannah Rayne

“I was hooked from the start. There was *hand over mouth ‘O’ my gawd I would be so embarrassed, to grabbing tissues, to laughing out loud in this book. If you’re looking for sex scenes and erotica you aren’t going to find that anywhere in this book. But the author has done such a phenomenal job building the chemistry between Knox and Lexi you don’t need it. The story is excellent without it. You will need your own fire hydrant to put out the flames that Knox and Lexi create in this story.” 5 Stars! ~My Family’s Heart Reviews

“Hook Me Up – This story had a little bit of everything I look for when I’m reading a story. Good pacing, some humor and a hot hero. Knox is a complex man. He had a lot of depth and it was nice to see that he wasn’t perfect. His flaws and his issues made him more real, which I appreciated. And even though the way they met was very unconventional, the pair make it work. A sweet story with a satisfying ending. I’ll definitely be checking out what else Adele Downs has to offer.” 5 Stars! ~Z Shaw

“This book is marvelous, it cracked me up at the very first page…This is truly a sweet, touching and funny romance! If I could give it more than five stars I would! It is a must must read book!” 5 Stars! ~ Roxie’s Reviews

“Adele Downs writes with wit and emotion. Her characters are always lovable and HOT! She makes you want more.” 5 Stars! ~Will Work For Books

“Hook Me Up (Adele Downs) is a really quick story – it starts off with our heroine stuck in a tree! Of course, the sexy firefighter arrives to save the day! I loved the chemistry between these two – and the whole story just made me smile.” 4.5 Stars! ~ Cat’s Reviews

Who Will Save a Man Who Saves The World?

Who will save a man who saves the world?

Summary:

Paramedic Mickey Kendall hasn’t slept a full night since his return from Iraq. He rescues victims by day and protects the innocent after dark. Mickey doesn’t do it for glory; he wants absolution, not admiration. He lives by the rule: No personal contact after a rescue. That code meets the ultimate test when Mickey saves a child’s life on a roadside and declines the parents’ invitation to dinner at their upscale restaurant.

Master chef Amanda Greer lives by the principle that delicious food and good company build bridges. When she learns Mickey has refused her business partners’ hospitality, she persuades him to change his mind. The handsome paramedic visits her restaurant and Amanda joins him at his table. Their unexpected chemistry turns kinetic and leads to a passionate kiss.

In Amanda’s arms, Mickey finds relief from the stressors that haunt him, but resists falling in love. When Amanda challenges him to face his demons and accept the love she offers, Mickey arrives at a crossroad. The war-weary paramedic must first save himself to claim the woman who reignites his passion for living and revives his wounded heart.

Excerpt:

“They called you a hero in the press.” Her dark lashes lowered and lifted and she smiled at him with admiration shining in her eyes. “They were right, of course. What you did for Jack can never be repaid.”

Mickey winced at the hero reference. “I hate to disappoint you, but I only did what I’m trained to do.”

Amanda made sounds of disagreement low in her throat. “Elena told me at least a hundred and fifty cars passed her on the highway. Every one of them ignored her cries for help. Of all those people, don’t you think one might have been medically trained? Or at least cared enough to respond? No. You stopped. Only you.”

Oh. He hadn’t thought of that.

She pointed a finger at his chest. “There’s a difference between you and other people. There’s no other way to explain what happened on that roadway. Elena is convinced you’re special, and I never doubt her perceptions. That’s another reason why I wanted to meet you.”

Mickey stared into Amanda’s eyes and her pupils dilated. Her lips parted, ever so slightly, as if to welcome a kiss. Her tongue touched the inside of her bottom lip and disappeared. Mickey knew then, she felt it too. Synergy. Chemistry. An attraction so powerful it turned kinetic on contact.

Some called it love at first sight.

Amanda. Even her name was beautiful.

She took a sip of her drink and he watched her mouth and throat work the liquid. When she set down the tumbler, she wiped a droplet from the corner of her mouth with a trimmed, unpolished fingertip. Mickey wished he could have swiped the bead away with his tongue.

Amanda leaned closer and pressed a hand to his wrist. “Trained or not, you were the only stranger on that highway who had a heart.”

Mickey laid his hand over hers and she let him keep it there. Until now, he wasn’t sure he still had a heart. His had been chipped away, piece by piece, like a block of ice since the war. He’d considered it long gone, with his soul. In mere minutes, what was left had thawed in the center, leaving him raw and exposed.

Amanda continued to speak; clearly unaware she’d stripped away another layer. “I love Jack like he’s my own son. He’s a terrific kid. I’ve helped take care of him since the day the Martins and I started this restaurant. When you saved him, you saved us all.” Amanda leaned in and pressed a quick, sweet kiss against Mickey’s jaw.

Their gazes locked when she sat back in her chair. The gravity of her words and her straightforward kiss humbled him into speechlessness. He’d been thanked many times before, but this woman had gotten to him like no one else. He squeezed her hand and then downed the rest of his drink. Amanda took another sip of hers and set the glass on the table before retreating into silence. She turned the tumbler slowly in her hands.

Mickey looked back at her and tapped two fingers against the menu’s leather cover. “Nothing here is what I expected.”

Amanda returned a quiet smile, either assuming he meant food choices, or pretending he had. She tucked her arms beneath her breasts and leaned forward against the edge of the table, lifting perfect white swells above the neckline of her blouse. “Organic means untouched by artificiality. Grown and consumed in its natural state. We eat only healthy foods unspoiled by chemicals, preservatives, hormones, steroids, antibiotics, and genetically modified seeds or cells. Pure.”

Pure. Mickey gazed at the stunning woman by his side. The texture of her skin looked smooth as cream and welcoming to the touch. He longed to run his hands along her thighs, imagining sleek roads leading to heaven at their apex. “I like the sound of that.” The way she looked back at him while he studied her face made him wonder if she’d read his mind.

The one that had gone dirty.
