“Perfection! It was just right in every way possible. The characters were interesting, flawed just enough, yet smart and funny. The plot was unique, entertaining, and clever. The writing was witty, well-paced, and insightful. And the sensual scenes sizzled and snapped. But most of all, I like that they bested a recalcitrant ghost.” 5 Stars! ~Rockin’ and Reviewing

“I loved this book! It had everything you could ask for. I will read this book again and again.” 5 Stars! ~ T.R. Amazon Review

About The Book:

Some ghosts won’t take “yes” for an answer.

Jack Harris has loved Legs Anderson since they were kids. Now that he has her in his bed, he has no intention of letting her go. Aunt Ada has other ideas, even from the grave.

GETTING BETWEEN JACK…

Orphaned at a young age, Legs Anderson owes her Aunt Ada everything. The stoic old lady raised her, and Ada’s warnings about men—and the Harris boys in particular—have stuck, even after her death. Of course, that could be because Ada stuck around, too.

…AND HIS LEGS

Patience is not one of Jack Harris’s virtues, and he’s waited too long to start a life with the woman he’s loved since childhood instead of them just knocking boots. Now Ada is interfering from beyond the grave, haunting the old Victorian house she bequeathed to her niece and reinforcing Legs’s fears of commitment. But Jack won’t give up. No matter what trouble may follow, the house will be renovated, Ada will learn to let go, Legs will put her money where her mouth is…and then Jack’ll put his lips everywhere else.

Here’s a little about about LIP SERVICE, a short contemporary romance novel with light paranormal elements, available in both digital and print formats:

Some ghosts won’t take “yes” for an answer.

Jack Harris has loved Legs Anderson since they were kids. Now that he has her in his bed, he has no intention of letting her go. Aunt Ada has other ideas, even from the grave.

GETTING BETWEEN JACK…

Orphaned at a young age, Legs Anderson owes her Aunt Ada everything. The stoic old lady raised her, and Ada’s warnings about men—and the Harris boys in particular—have stuck, even after her death. Of course, that could be because Ada stuck around, too.

…AND HIS LEGS

Patience is not one of Jack Harris’s virtues, and he’s waited too long to start a life with the woman he’s loved since childhood instead of them just knocking boots. Now Ada is interfering from beyond the grave, haunting the old Victorian house she bequeathed to her niece and reinforcing Legs’s fears of commitment. But Jack won’t give up. No matter what trouble may follow, the house will be renovated, Ada will learn to let go, Legs will put her money where her mouth is…and then Jack’ll put his lips everywhere else.

Excerpt:

The roar of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle on Rachel’s block and the rev of a throttle in her driveway announced Jack’s arrival. Legs tried to appear nonchalant when he walked through the poolside gate, but the sight of his sun-streaked hair and tanned, muscular good looks nearly knocked her off her seat. She eased her sunglasses down the bridge of her nose to get a better look.

When he stepped into the pool area dressed in black jeans, black biker boots, and a white muscle shirt that framed his pumped-up shoulders and biceps, she caught her breath. Everyone in the group said “hey” and Rachel offered him a cold drink, but his focus had remained on her. He slid his sunglasses on top of his head and nodded in her direction.

Legs remembered his gaze meeting hers before his attention strayed to her gold and black bikini then savored every inch of her skin. An appreciative smirk curled his lips and desire flashed in his beautiful blue eyes. He took a long pull of the soft drink someone handed him and then set the can down on the patio table. He looked her way and said, “Want to go for a ride?”

The invitation came out like a dare. All eyes shifted to her, watching to see what she’d do. They all knew she wasn’t allowed to date Jack Harris. Taking a ride on his motorcycle might not have been the same thing, but there would be hell to pay if her aunt found out.

Library Journal, LIP SERVICE by Adele Downs, Review

Thank you Library Journal for reading and reviewing LIP SERVICE and loving it! I’m thrilled the book was selected.

Downs, Adele. Lip Service. Boroughs. May 2015. 83p. ebk. ISBN 9781942886327. $2.99. PARANORMAL ROMANCE

Linda Anderson, aka “Legs,” and Jack Harris have been dancing around each other since they made mud pies together as children. Only one thing could stand between them: Legs’ Aunt Ada. Once Ada died and left her house to her niece, Jack decided to make his move. Unfortunately, Ada is not as gone as he thought, and she is not exactly pleased with what has been going on in her bedroom. While there’s certainly enough material here for a longer story, this novella zips along. One can only hope for a sequel with more of Ada’s backstory.
Verdict: A quick ghost story from Downs (Naturally Yours; Santa to the Rescue) that is perfect for passing the time on your way to your vacation.—Emily Thompson, Univ. of Tennessee at Chattanooga Lib.
