Hit &Run Bride by Nana Malone & Misty Evans Blog Tour

Title:   Hit & Run Bride
Author: Nana Malone & Misty Evans
Release Date: June 2, 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Spandex and Lycra everywhere, but not a stitch of Gucci. Becca Daniels surveyed her fellow Dive employees. How they could just show up to work in sportswear was beyond her. Granted, Dive’s parent company, Elite Sports, was the largest sportswear marketing company on the west coast, but really, would it kill any of them to wear something other than Lulu Lemon?

“Care to join us in the discussion, Becca?”

Damn it, busted.

“Um, sorry. Just thinking about some ideas for the website. And what it will take to get the campaign going given our timeline.” There, that sounded like something a totally together project analyst would say, right?

“I’m glad to hear that, Becca.” Fred, the company’s ad executive manager said. He was dressed in bright teal running shorts and a spandex shirt. “Because as luck would have it—or in this case, as Brett Jennings would have it—you’re going to be project lead for the Southland campaign.”

Brett Jennings? The head of Dive? Becca’s mouth dropped open, and she forced her brain to concentrate on the words. Project lead for the new Southland swim line? But she’d only been here a year. It had taken most of the analysts at least two years before they’d been given their own campaigns to lead.
“Excuse me?” She slid a gaze to her best friend, Vanessa Rodriquez. Maybe she’d heard wrong. Fred must have meant Rebecca, the senior campaign manager.
“We feel it’s time, Becca. Your experience with Bloomingdale’s sportswear division and your relationship with the Marketing Director of Elite will come in handy. You’ve been here long enough to prove yourself. We’re glad to have you on this.”
Except, nobody looked glad. In fact, many of her coworkers looked pissed. Or annoyed, or confused. Hell, she was confused. She couldn’t do this, regardless of the fact Southland was the new designer watersports line. Shit, she couldn't even swim. What did she know about spandex and neoprene?
Do. Not. Panic.
All she needed to do was take a deep breath. Maybe if she backed out gracefully, she could save face and ignore the hateful glares of the forever hungry and toned that were her coworkers. “Uhm, I’d really feel more comfortable if I partnered with—”
Vanessa kicked her under the table and shook her head.
“Ow,” Becca muttered beneath her breath. “What I mean to say is, yes, sir! I’m looking forward to the challenge and can’t wait to partner with Southland to really rock this campaign.”
She was so totally screwed.
She’d started working at Dive a little over a year ago, desperate for a change of pace. She’d loved working at Bloomingdale’s, but she’d hit a ceiling at her last job, one that wouldn't budge unless she started sleeping with her boss, so she’d taken a chance and moved to San Diego. Land of the perpetually sunny and tanned.
For the most part, she loved her job, she’d made friends. Okay, make that one friend.
Van was great, but Becca’d had trouble adjusting. It was like she spoke Greek, or designer, rather, and they all spoke German—or in this case, athletic gear. She didn’t speak the same language, let alone wear the same uniform. Nike and Lulu Lemon were like a religious cult around the office. Hell, her first month with Elite Sports, when everyone had been talking about how they’d only managed four or six or ten every morning, she’d finally had to break down and ask what the hell they meant. Ten what? Apparently, these crazy people had meant miles. As in running.  And they always said miles as if running that far seemed normal. Like she was the abnormal one because she wasn’t in some never-ending training cycle for some half marathon. What had happened to good old fashioned walking on the treadmill while watching Real Housewives? That counted as physical activity, right?

My review

I loved this book. Becca Daniels receives a marriage proposal from Holden front of her colleagues and can not say no. But it is not very sure she mades ​​the right decision. Her boyfriend does not really know her: gave her an horrible ring  and it is also pink, a color that she hates, he wants to do in the honeymoon to Hawaii and participate in a triathlon and she can not swim. She decides to take a course in swimming. Her instructor is a nice guy Liam sweet and kind and tries to overcome her fear of water. Liam had to participate in the Olympics but could not because of an injury and his father has never forgiven him. From the moment he confesses his secret to Becca develops between them a deep feeling that raises doubts about Becca Holden. Will marry or choose true love?

Once I started reading, I could not stop until finishing the book. It's a really funny story: the first meeting between Liam and Becca really makes me laugh so much.
It's a must read romance
