"Clam Jam"
Definition: the female equivalent of a cock block.

Example: You’re chatting with a guy you’re 
interested in and your friend comes along and lays claim to him. 

Maggie

That’s my life—except it’s worse. My friend who keeps “jamming” me is my gay roommate and if that isn’t a W.T.F. moment, I’m not sure what is.


Fact: He went home with three—yes, three—of the guys I had been so sure were into me.

Fact: 
He’s really pissing me off. I mean, hello? I’m trying to get back in the saddle, but I’ll never manage to get a boyfriend before the age of fifty if he keeps this up.

Fact: Secretly, I wonder what it would be like if he weren’t gay. Why do all the hot, sweet, tender-hearted guys have to be gay?

Fact:
My gay-dar needs a serious tune-up.

Ry

The day I interviewed for the room to rent, everything changed. I knew I had met “the girl”, except there was one small problem: she didn’t want anything to do with men. I recognized a top-notch force field when I saw one. She’d been burned badly and didn’t want to deal with a heterosexual guy as a roommate. I could’ve turned around and found another place to live, but I wanted to live there—with
her. 
So I had to go “undercover”. 

Fact: I’m in love with my roommate.

Fact: 
I’m a likely candidate for carpal tunnel surgery since all the action I’ve had for the past year has been my hand.

Fact: 
She’s going to hate me if I come clean now.

Fact: 
I’m not giving up. Which means, I’ll just have to continue to run defense until I figure out a way to get Maggie to see the “real” me. 


The me that loves her. 
The me that would never do her wrong.
Until then, I’ll keep running off every guy who shows any interest. 
Until then, I’ll continue to Clam Jam. 




My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love when a Romantic Comedy book reads like a Romantic Comedy movie and CLAM JAM definitely did. The plot was refreshing, the characters were enjoyable, and there was plenty of steam, geekiness and cheese to make for a good time had by all.

Maggie was absolutely adorable, but it was Ryland who stole the show. He was the one I adored the most. He was a sympathetic character (not to say Maggie wasn't because she was) and while his subterfuge was pretty idiotic, it made for some pretty hilarious times. He unfortunately loved a woman who thought she wasn't ready for love again. There was an obvious instant attraction, but for the most part, Maggie convinced herself to give up on ever having something more with her new "gay" best friend. Who doesn't seem all that gay after all. And why on Earth did Ryland have to be so ridiculously hot???

LOL this book was a hoot and I recommend it to anyone looking for a light, fun read.

RC Boldt is the wife of Mr. Boldt, a retired Navy Chief, mother of Little Miss Boldt, and former teacher of many students. She currently lives on the southeastern coast of North Carolina, enjoys long walks on the beach, running, reading, people watching, and singing karaoke. If you're in the mood for some killer homemade mojitos, can't recall the lyrics to a particular 80's song, or just need to hang around a nonconformist who will do almost anything for a laugh, she's your girl.







Q&A with RC Boldt

Describe yourself in five words or less.
Sarcastic, organized, wino, loud, happy

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
Maggie, with her internal dialogue, was the most fun to write. She was definitely quirky in her own right but, I like to think she’s also quite realistic in voicing what I feel a lot of women think.

Name three things on your desk right now.
My planner, my Sharpie ultra fine point pen, and my laptop.

If you could trade places with anyone for just one day, who would you be?
My daughter, because I never went to Pre-K and I’m pretty much convinced I missed out on something HUGE. Snack time, going to the park, Art, etc. No homework, no bills, singing out of tune without any judgment… Sign me up for that.

What are some books that you enjoyed recently?
Managed by Kristen Callihan, Someone Like You by Lauren Layne, and Vicious by L.J. Shen.

Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?
I am so incredibly grateful for your support! I could never truly manage to put into words how thankful I am.

Can you tell us about your upcoming book?
Out of the Ashes is scheduled for release in May. It’s a standalone about a Navy SEAL who was left in the hands of hell’s cruelest gatekeepers and the one woman ready to show him that his life isn’t over, that he’s worthy of love. She might be the only one to prove to him that sometimes even a phoenix needs help rising out of the ashes.
