Just this Once Book Tour and Giveaway

Thank you for stopping at my spot on the Just This Once Book Tour and Giveaway. This Online Book Tour is brought to you by Reading Addiction Blog Tours. I will provide you with a synopsis of the book, review on the book, and a small bio from Rosalind James. Visit the other blogs on this Book Tour to learn more about this book.

Contemporary Romance
Title: Just This Once
Author - Rosalind James

Date Published: 8/30/12



Everyone needs to be rescued sometimes. 

Everyone but Hannah Montgomery, that is. She just needs a vacation. Three weeks in New Zealand to sort out her life, figure out what she wants, seems just right. Oh, and to relax. She should definitely put that on the agenda. She certainly isn't looking for a fling with a professional rugby player, no matter how attractive he is. Hannah doesn't do casual. But maybe just this once. . .

Drew Callahan is happy to help Hannah find all the fun she's been missing. But as much as he's shared with her, he's kept one very big secret. And learning the truth, now that she's back home again, has made Hannah warier than ever. Drew knows that she's right for him. But how can he convince her to let down her guard enough to explore what they could have together?

Author Bio:
Rosalind James is the author of three romance/women’s fiction novels in the "Escape to New Zealand" series, and is hard at work now on the fourth book. A marketing professional and publishing industry veteran, she has lived all over the United States and in a number of other countries, traveling with her civil engineer husband. Most recently, she spent several years in Australia and New Zealand, where she fell in love with the people, the landscape, and the culture of both countries.
Rosalind self-published the first three books in the “Escape to New Zealand” on August 31, 2012, and offered the first book, “Just This Once,” as a free download through Amazon’s Kindle Select program on September 7. The book was downloaded over 14,500 times in three days, reaching #2 in Women’s Contemporary Fiction, #7 in all Romance, and #23 among all free Kindle books. Within four days of the promotion, James had sold over 800 books, and “Just This Once” had reached #82 in Women’s Contemporary Fiction in the Amazon store. James credits the book’s overnight success to the fact that “everyone would like to escape to New Zealand! I know I did!”

My Review:

I really enjoyed this book.  I often thought of going on a vacation by myself - but I don't think I ever could.   
Hannah works very hard and never takes times for herself.  She has been there for her sister and brother since a young age. She is always available for work.  She  decided to travel half a world away to New Zealand for a three week vacation.  She was excited to go and relax and spend time by herself and explore and see the sites of New Zealand.  Her plans changed a bit after on her first day.  

She couldn't sleep so she went swimming - only she didn't know there was a rip tide that was very strong - when she thought she was not going to make it a man with a kayak came and saved her.  He got her something warm to drink and then took her to breakfast.   His name was Drew and he was a famous Rugby player.  They ended up spending the rest of Hannah's vacation together.  They had a wonderful time together - but too soon it was time for Hannah to go home.  

Once home Hannah and Drew kept in touch and Drew visited a  couple times. Which were wonderful.  Drew wanted Hannah to move to New Zealand - but she wasn't sure she could, her sister and brother needed her. Her job needed her - but she missed Drew.

You will have to read the story  to see what happens next but I will tell you that I think you will like the story.
