Spotlight & Giveaway: Stuck on You by Heather Thurmeier

Posted February 7th, 2013 by in Blog, Spotlight / 47 comments

Today it is my pleasure to welcome Crimson Romance author Heather Thurmeier to HJ!

Heather has a special for us talking about her newest release Stuck on You 🙂

It’s no secret I’m a reality TV enthusiast. But there’s one show I love more than the all the others… The Amazing Race. It also happens to be the only reality TV show I would ever consider being a contestant on.

The Amazing Race is named appropriately, in my opinion, because going on a show like that would be nothing short of absolutely amazing in every sense of the word. I’d love to fly around the world on someone else’s dollar, experience the culture in a bunch of exotic locations, and be forced to try things I’d never have the guts to do otherwise, like bungee jump off a bridge. Of course, I say that now while I’m home on my couch, snuggling under a blanket and not while inching closer to the edge of a 100-foot drop with nothing but a glorified elastic between me and death. Whew. Did it just get hot in here??

Stuck on You is the second book in my Reality TV Romance series and is loosely inspired by The Amazing Race.

Stuck On You

On The Amazing Race, teams have to work with their partner (and sometimes other teams) to figure out where to go, how to get there, and what to do once they arrive. The reality show in Stuck on You is similar in that each team of two has to figureout those same problems to succeed in the show. Only there’s an added problem… They have to figure out where they are by using a set of longitude and latitude coordinates and a handheld GPS unit. No maps. No handy clues to guide their way. No helpful towns people to ask directions.

Yikes!

 

Sounds like a challenge to me. Especially when they also have to compete against a bunch of other teams to get to the different locations first since only the first team to arrive gets the prize!

FFU

As much as I love to watch The Amazing Race, I can’t imagine ever actually agreeing to be on the show. Aside from the fact that I couldn’t leave my kids for an entire month, I would be way too chicken to try some of the things they have to do. I think I’m better off enjoying the show from the comfort of my couch.

Excerpt

While they chatted, Paige had trouble keeping her mind on the conversation. Hopefully if he said anything important, Zoe would remember it and tell her later.

How could Paige possibly concentrate on boring cache details when Miles sat across from her looking all beefy and delicious? And when he smiled, she melted. She peeked up at him as he joined in to the conversation. The light from the fireplace danced across his skin highlighting the stubble that had grown along his jaw during the day. He looked like he really needed a shower.

A hot shower with lots of slippery soap. And a loofa. A loofa she could navigate over his chest, scrubbing every contour, and down what was most likely a six-pack of abs. All the way to…

A cough startled her, making her jump like she’d been caught sneaking around somewhere she shouldn’t be. She glanced up from Miles lap only to find a silly grin on his face and a cocked eyebrow. Oh, yes. She’d been caught. But he didn’t seem at all bothered by it.

 

 

Stuck on You Blurb:

Stuck On YouIf being forced to team up with reality TV’s favorite bad girl wasn’t enough, falling for her brother might just make this reality show a real nightmare.
Paige Anderson agrees to be on a new reality show called Treasure Trekkers, a show where contestants use handheld GPS units to find hidden caches filled with prizes, with her good friend Cassidy. But when Cassidy is unable to compete, Chip Cormack, the show’s producer, steps in with a last-minute replacement to be Paige’s partner—Zoe Oliver, reality TV’s favorite bad girl.
Jack Miles (aka Miles) is a mountain climber with the body to prove it. Miles convinced his climbing partner Ben to come on the show with him for one reason—to prove to Ben that they can still hike together, regardless of the fact that Ben lost his foot in a tragic accident. Miles isn’t about to let anything get in his way of winning—not even beautiful Paige.
But when Miles and Paige are thrown into an alliance with their teammates, working closely together leads to more than just good strategy. Can Paige steal Miles’ heart while surviving Zoe long enough to win the game?

  1. Evelyn

    The only reality show that I would consider being a part of would be the Amazing Race. I have been a huge fan it started. I would love to travel and I think I would enjoy some of the challenges that they have to accomplish.

  2. Aline

    I wish I could be a contestant in MasterChef although it’s just a wishful thinking because I’m such a terrible cook! LOL

  3. Marcy Shuler

    I love watching reality TV shows, but I’m too chicken to actually be on one. LOL

  4. Becky M.

    My mom is an Amazing Race addict, so I’ve told her that if she signed us up for a mother/daughter season, I’d go for it (and not just because I’m her only option as far as daughters go–the few episodes I’ve seen look…fun? Mostly? 😉 )

  5. KYLA WHITLEY

    Not a chance. I very much dislike reality shows. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

  6. Belinda

    I would like to on the Family Fued.
    I have been watching for a long time. It’s a fun show. Thanks for giveaway.

  7. Kai W.

    I have thought of being on Amazing Race or America Got Talent. I do know I will freeze since I have an issue with stage fright.

  8. Pennie M

    I could see myself pairing with my daughter and doing the Amazing Race, we talked about it. I would also love to be on Survivor but don’t think I would have the patience to put up with the whining or the bugs. Okay, on second thought, the best thing would for me to watch both shows from the comfort of my home with the dogs at my feet.

  9. amel armeliana

    I’m not bad at singing. I might consider singing contest, such an american idol, the voice, x factor. But I don’t know, till now, I have no gut to do it. Maybe later, maybe someday, may never *grin*

    Thanks for this giveaway 🙂

  10. Veronica

    The Amazing Race or Big Brother (although honestly I would probably go insane cut off from the world lol)

    • Heather Thurmeier

      I hear ya, Veronica! I could never be cut off from civilization without internet, phone… OMG books! I never see them read on BB. I bet they aren’t allow to bring books!

  11. Mary Preston

    I think that my BFF, Rosemarie, would be the perfect person to partner up for The Amazing Race. We would certainly have fun & she has that competitive streak, so she would push me to be brave & daring.

  12. Lola Karns

    I love Amazing Race. It fulfills my need for armchair travel and as a writer gives me insight into other people. I recently blogged about AR21 on my website http://www.lolakarns.com. After over 20 seasons, the show is still fresh. I wish there was a place to follow up with some of my favorites from the years.

  13. Leanna H

    I don’ t think I would ever get cast on a reality show since they always try to get people to drink a lot and I don’t drink a whole lot. I wouldn’t want to be on a reality tv show.

  14. Rebe

    I actually don’t like reality shows, but I would probably like being on House Hunters (or House Hunters International!). Those aren’t really competitions, though.

    • Heather Thurmeier

      I love house hunters. But only because I like to look at real estate. Sometimes I’ll look up a random place and see what kind of house are for sale just for fun! I’m weird.

  15. Ginny LaMere

    I love to watch Big Brother and Biggest Loser but I would not want to be on either one, Big Brother I would go nuts locked in a house with other people and no way out although if I had a suitcase full of books I would be okay I think

    • Heather Thurmeier

      I agree! I couldn’t be locked in a house with strangers either. I was thinking about the books thing. I can’t recall ever seeing anyone read anything but The Bible on BB. Do you think they don’t allow books?!?! I would go crazy after a month with no reading. I’d be reading the back of cereal boxes!

  16. Tawnya Bentley

    Maybe American Idol just to see the look on the judges faces. I’d love my daughter to be able to go on The Voice though, it’s actually a dream of hers. She obviously did not inherit that beautiful talent from me. I sound like a Walrus.

  17. Annwitch

    I love to travel and am competitive, so maybe the Amazing Race with my husband. I think our marriage could take it after 28 years.

  18. Cecilia

    Just like to watch, but im really interested in Amazing Race.. What a great reality show.
