Blog Tour, Excerpt & Giveaway: Got Me Hoping By Casey Cox


Vet Shop Boys, Book 1

It’s just a one-night stand, they said. It’ll be simple, no-strings fun, they said. They. Lied.

I’m done with love and being broken-hearted. The only dogs I want to deal with are the ones I treat in the veterinary clinic I work at.

But at thirty-four, having my first one-night stand can’t hurt. Right? The rules are pretty simple.

1. Don’t spend the night. 2. Don’t see him again. 3. Don’t share anything personal. 4. Don’t fall in love with him.

But when Haze, the guy I spent a blazing hot night with and haven’t been able to forget about, shows up as our new receptionist, the rules fly out the window.

There’s no way one night could lead to anything more. So why has Haze got me hoping this might just last?

Got Me Hoping is book 1 in the Vet Shop Boys series and can be read as a stand-alone. Expect plenty of humor, found family, an adorable golden retriever, a foul-mouthed parrot, a whole new way of getting clean (as well as very, very dirty) and a heartwarming happily ever after!

Exclusive Excerpt:

“It’s been a while since I’ve done this.” I frown, confused. “I thought you said you’ve never had a one-night stand before?” “I haven’t.” Noah plays with a loose thread on his towel, averting my gaze. “I mean sex. I haven’t had sex in…two years.” “At all?” Shit. I didn’t mean to blurt it out like that. Before I can say anything to let him know there’s nothing wrong with not having had sex in a while, he juts his chin out. “There is Max, I guess.” My brows crease. “Max?” Noah tips his head toward the nightstand. “Wait. You killed a guy called Max and stuffed him into your bedside table?” Noah’s head falls back, and he laughs. His laughter is warm and breathy, and I’m happy my attempt to lighten the mood seems to have worked. “Max is my dildo.” I scooch down the bed and position myself next to Noah. My hand finds his thigh. “Well, no offense to Max, but he’s no match for my spectacular cock.” “Is that so?” “Yeah. You want me to prove it?” I tease. Noah licks his lips, nodding. I curl my fingers around the back of his neck and pull him in, our mouths melding. As we kiss, I make a promise to myself. This is Noah’s first one-night stand, his first sex in two freaking years––I’m going to make this good for him. I manage to wrestle my lips away from his for a moment and jolt my head. “Let’s move up. Oh, and let’s lose the pants.” We scramble a little, taking off our trousers and briefs. I’m not gonna lie, a happy warmth spreads through my chest when Noah’s eyes widen as he takes me in. Hey, I wasn’t lying about my cock.

About the Author

I’ve been wanting to do this ‘authoring’ thing since forever. But this thing called ‘life’ kept getting in the way. And then this thing called ‘turning 40’ happened. Eep!

So I did what any responsible newcomer to middle-age-hood would do: I quit my day job, started drinking copious amounts of coffee, and reconnected with my life long passion–donuts, er, I mean writing.

So here I am. And there you are… Hello!

I live on the east coast of Australia, I’m the proud paw-rent of two of the most utterly adorable French Bulldogs, Ralphie and Lilly, and when I’m not writing, you’ll most likely catch me down at the beach (I’m the one drinking Rosé and eating donuts while other people are doing healthy things like ‘walking’ and ‘swimming’).
