Guest Post with Author Jules Barnard and Giveaway

Meet Jules Barnard, author of Deep Blue.

Jules is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area. She attended UC Davis, whose college landscape often finds its way into her New Adult novels. She has a Master’s degree and spent many an hour running statistical analysis, until she realized her favorite part of the job was writing reports. She decided to cut out the math and add in some hot guys, and so began her career as a novelist.

Jules is a Northern California native living on the coast with her husband and two children. She has no impulse control around cupcakes and credits herself with the ability to read while running on the treadmill or burning dinner.

Cali, what does a day in your life look like?

If I’m a lucky girl, I’ll wake to my freaking hot boyfriend Jaeger wrapped around me. I will more than likely ogle his ass as he pulls on his work boots and a T-shirt that hugs his broad shoulders, and then trail him into the woodshop next to his house. I’ll plant myself on the cozy leather couch that catches my breath every time I look at it, remembering a fond reunion, and drink my morning coffee while he works…Think wood chips, machinery, and artistry mixed with a heady dose of bulging muscles as he carves intricate wooden designs. Is there any wonder this guy makes my pulse race?

But getting back to business, I’d soon shower and prepare for my job at Sallee Construction, where I’ve been hired to draw artist’s renditions of future construction projects. After work I might head to the art classes I’m taking at the Lake Tahoe Community College, depending on which day it is, or hang with my BFF Gen before she goes to work at the casino for the evening. My brother Tyler also lives with us, which actually isn’t as bad as it sounds.

Tyler’s a pain in the ass, but he’s fun. We battle it out over who gets the remote control, which he always seems to win, though Gen and I actually pay the rent on our small cottage—dubbed the chalet, because it’s the antithesis of mountain chic. Tyler’s control of the remote has reduced Gen and me to recording our favorite smut reality TV so he can watch sports live. Not cool.

As soon as Jaeger finishes work, we’ll meet up for dinner at my place, or more likely, he’ll cook me something at his. I love hanging at Jaeger’s beautiful house just off the shore of Lake Tahoe. Then who knows where the night will lead? Okay, who am I kidding? We’ll end up in his bedroom, or on that woodshop couch.

When Cali Morgan kicks off her perfect post-college summer in Lake Tahoe, she has everything she ever wanted: acceptance into a top law program, a gorgeous boyfriend, and an incredible summer planned with her best friend.

Confident about her place in the world, Cali makes it her mission to be her friend’s wingwoman and help her meet guys. What Cali doesn’t count on is running into Jaeger Lang, one of her older brother’s high school friends, or the sparks that fly when she’s around him.

Jaeger has changed, and it’s not just the added height and muscle. There’s something about him that’s deep and a little scarred. In spite of the changes, Jaeger becomes a top pick for her friend—if Cali can keep her hands off him.

But when Cali’s boyfriend dumps her and her carefully laid plans begin to unravel, she finds herself questioning what it is she truly desires. In the midst of doubts about her future, one thing is very clear: she wants Jaeger for her own. The question is, has her friend already fallen for him?
