Reasons to Love Too Hard to Forget's Elliot and Peggy with Tessa Bailey + #Giveaway

Top 5 Reasons to Fall in Love with Elliot and Peggy

Oooh! There are so many reasons. I’m thrilled be here to narrow it down to five!

1. Peggy doesn’t take Elliott’s sh*t. Elliott is a local legend, college football coach and scares everyone. He uses his intimidating façade to keep people—even his players—at a distance, but Peggy refuses to be cowed. She sees right through him and I love her for it. Spoiler: so does Elliott.

2. Elliott’s relationship with his pre-teen daughter, Alice. It’s the kind of relationship two adult roommates have, but there is an underlying love and respect that grows throughout the book. Which is a direct result of…

3. Peggy’s relationship with Elliott’s daughter, Alice. Alice needs help running lines for a school play and Peggy takes on the roll of acting coach with the kind of flare only she could pull off.

4. Peggy’s optimism versus Elliott’s pessimism. It’s kind of an amazing thing watching two vastly different kinds of people meet somewhere in the middle. Or pull and argue with one another until they meet at a happy medium, rather. There is so much growth between these characters throughout the book and Peggy’s unrelenting optimism is what guides them there.

5. Elliott’s hidden romantic streak. On the outside, he’s the gruff, no nonsense football coach of legend, but when Elliott turns on the romance? Look out. I’ve been calling this the best grovel I’ve ever written and I totally stand by that! Elliott has some fancy footwork to do!

This time, she's calling the shots.

Peggy Clarkson is returning to her alma mater with one goal in mind: confront Elliott Brooks, the man who ruined her for all others, and remind him of what he's been missing. Even after three years, seeing him again is like a punch in the gut, but Peggy's determined to stick to her plan. Maybe then, once she has the upper hand, she'll finally be able to move on.

In the years since Peggy left Cincinnati, Elliott has kept his focus on football. No distractions and no complications. But when Peggy walks back onto his practice field and into his life, he knows she could unravel everything in his carefully controlled world. Because the girl who was hard to forget is now a woman impossible to resist.
Romancing the Clarksons series

Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove cross-country to New York City in under four days. Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend, and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.
