Guest Post with Author J.L. Berg and Giveaway

Meet J.L. Berg, author of Within These Walls.

J.L. Berg is a California native living in the South. She’s married to her high school sweetheart and they have two beautiful girls that drive them batty on a daily basis. When she’s not writing, you can find her with her nose stuck in a romance book, in a yoga studio or devouring anything chocolate. J.L. Berg is represented by Jill Marsal of Marsal Lyon Literary Agency, LLC.

What is it about guys with tattoos?

What is it about a hot boy covered in tattoos that reduces an otherwise well-adjusted, modern woman into a puddle of mush? Why do we become mesmerized by the scrolling artwork of ink moving up and down a man’s body?

Sorry, what where we talking about?

Right…tattoos….hot men. Yum.

I have no idea what it is, but when you pair a hot guy with ink, he suddenly becomes a god. Heads turn, panties melt, clothes disappear. It’s a deadly combination.

Tattoos make us feel reckless and give a sense of danger, and what isn’t sexy about that? It’s why we love our book boyfriends covered in them. From motorcycle men to rock stars and even the bad boys with a past, we can’t seem to get enough of the tatted up fictional heroes. It’s exactly why you’ll love Jude Cavanaugh.

“He was like a Greek god covered in tattoos—and scrubs.”

Jude is quiet, sexy and full of untold secrets. Maybe that’s why we love tatted men…they’re a mystery we can’t wait to solve. But what happens when the secrets are uncovered? Will you find love with your unlikely hero or was it nothing more than an illusion covered with a bit of ink?

Within these walls, he became my solace, my sanctuary and my strength.

I am not strong. I am just a survivor of circumstance.
Isn’t that what we all do? Survive?

Each of us has our own set of circumstances to muddle through. Mine are just more…complicated.

Born with a severe heart defect, I’ve seen the inside of a hospital room more than my own bedroom.

I was drowning, a prisoner to the illness that owned me, until he appeared. He thinks he’s blocked out the world with his tattoos and hard exterior, but I see the real Jude, the one he so desperately wants to forget.

But is he the answer to my prayers or will he break my already damaged heart forever?

My name is Lailah Buchanan, and this is our story of hope, redemption and sacrificing it all for the one you love.
