Rules of Engagement by Amber Gilchrist.

I "met" Amber through a friend in an online writing group. I was given the opportunity to read her book "Glitch" and loved it. It was a fun, quick read. The next book I read was "The Tell-Tale Con", which was YA and I also loved. What can I say, I'm a sucker for YA. So I was very excited to get an Advanced Reader's Copy of "Rules of Engagement" and be invited to participate in Amber's Blog Tour. Again, Amber did not disappoint. Her characters were witty and fun, and the book was well-paced and I sort of ignored my children for an afternoon so I could finish it. So with that said, and a recommendation that you should pick up a copy, here's your teaser.

But wait! Did I mention there were prizes? Yes there are prizes. But I am not going to tell you how to win those prizes. You're going to have to scroll down (reading as you go) to find out how to win said prizes.

Good luck to all. I hope you enjoy this post and I hope you enjoy the book and win the raffle!

For Annemarie Whitted, her youngest sister’s engagement starts as a happy event, and ends as a slap in the face when she comes to the harsh realization that she’s a failure at relationships, a person in stasis. Annemarie is motivated and organized, a woman on a mission, and she’s getting married now.Her Rules of Engagement ensure she’ll make the right choice, and her committee will find her potential eternal companions. She assigns the job to her closest sister, Lisa, and Lisa’s husband, Tanner. Of course, Tanner comes with baggage— his brother, Ben, Annemarie’s lifelong nemesis.

The war between the two of them gives a brand new meaning to Annemarie’s Rules of Engagement, and his presence isn’t helping her at all. Especially when he disapproves of her methods and questions every step she makes. Especially when their forced proximity makes each of them really see each other for the first time. Especially when she discovers that her heart has secret corners she never knew, and that the Rules might have been her biggest mistake of all.

Author Bio:
Amber Gilchrist lives in New Mexico with her husband and three children. She writes YA for upper teens, as well as LDS Romantic Comedies. She calls her lifetime of jumping from one job to another 'experience' for her books and not an inability to settle down. Amber loves mysteries and a good, happy romance. She also loves to laugh. Sometimes she likes all of them together.
A fan of quirky movies and indie books, Amber likes to be with her family, is socially inept, and fears strangers and small yippy dogs. She alternates between writing and being a mom and wife. She tries to do both at the same time but her kids don't appreciate being served lunch and told, "This is the hot dog of your discontent." So mostly she writes when everyone else is in bed.
