JEM

If you came for Beyond the Book scroll on down. I have four posts today.


Author Michelle Abbott writes new adult romance. She currently has four books published.
JEM
Two injured, stubborn souls meet unexpectedly. Will they save each other from their demons or have they been too damaged for too long to see past the pain?

Growing up, all Jem knew was hatred and the pain from his father's fists. Taunted by the kids at school, he was alone, until a girl with carrot coloured hair sat next to him.

She smiled.
She listened.
She cared.


She was his angel, and he knew he’d love her forever. But Jem’s father hurts him in a way he never expected by taking him away from her.

Now eighteen, scarred inside and out, Jem trusts no one and has worked hard to ensure he'll never be helpless again. But then he runs into his angel. The only problem is she doesn’t recognize him. Jem needs her to remember him, to show him that their time together meant to her what it did to him. For once in his life he wants to have mattered to someone, to her.

Devon is attracted to the muscular, tattooed, pierced hottie standing by the pub quiz machine. That is, until he punches a guy clean across the bar for daring to touch him. She’s had her fill of violent men and intends to avoid this one at all costs.
Excerpt from JEM
Jem

I try to focus on the movie, but my gaze continually flicks to Devon. I can make out the outline of her eyelashes as they flutter against her cheek every time she blinks. I watch her lips part as she eats some popcorn. My gaze travels down to her slim neck. It looks so soft. I imagine stroking my nose along it and inhaling the scent of her rose perfume. I slide my arm around her shoulders. If she doesn’t want me to touch her, I’ll stop. To my surprise she leans towards me and rests her head on my shoulder. Bliss. I take a tendril of her hair and twirl it around my finger. Her touch brings me peace, it always has. I press my lips to the top of her head, and I breathe. The scent of roses will forever be associated with her from now on. She reaches for my hand and entwines her fingers with mine. “Is this okay?” she asks.
I rub my thumb across the back of her hand. “It’s perfect.” I crave her touch; it’s always meant safety and love to me. A soft laugh escapes my lips as a silly image flashes through my mind. I whisper in her ear, “If I could, I’d super glue myself to you.” Her body shakes against mine as she laughs.
I’ve no idea what movie I saw. I don’t know who starred in it and I haven’t a clue what happened, but it was the best movie I’ve ever seen. Devon’s arm is wrapped around my waist as I walk her to her door. She fits so perfectly against me, we’re like two pieces of the same puzzle. She belongs with me. I wait while she unlocks her door. Luke runs inside and my Angel faces me and slides her arms around my neck. “I’ve had a great time. We must do this again,” she says. I stare into her soft eyes and dip my head towards hers. I shiver at the feel of her soft lips against mine. She’s mine.

Interview with Jem
1.  Job?
I work at an amusement arcade, fixing the machines when they go wrong, handing out change and that kind of thing. It pays my bills, it’s local and the hours suit me.

2. Currently residing in...?
Hemsby in Norfolk. I’ve got a trailer right by the sea. There’s nothing like walking along the beach every morning. It keeps me calm.

3. Level of schooling, or self-taught?
I had to quit school when I was small because my asshole of a father moved us all at the last minute after someone reported him to social services for child cruelty. He never enrolled me in another school. I taught myself all I need to know.

4. Favorite food?
Don’t have one. I eat to live, I don’t live to eat.

5. Most important goal?
To get Devon to remember me and love me again. To take care of her and show her that I never forgot her and never stopped loving her.

Michelle Abbott lives in the UK and hates describing herself in 3rd person.

She  loves to write new adult romance about heroes who begin as the underdog and are protective of their girl.

She's an avid reader of romance, is addicted to coffee and loves wine and chocolate, so yeah, not the most healthy eating and drinking habits :-) She spends way too much time online when she should be writing. She collects teddy bears and occasionally knits a couple of rows on a sweater she started years ago, which she may eventually finish in time to wear for her funeral :-)
