Let's Be Crazy Release Day Blitz!

Oh Captain, My Captain presents Ashton Campbell of the Utah Bears.

Ashton Campbell balances
his time between hockey and his young son, Reed. He can’t manage to find anyone
good enough to be introduced into his little family, not that he spends a lot
of time looking. As soon as he lays eyes on the beautiful, yet annoyed fan, he
knows he needs at least one date with her, but he has to convince her to say yes

Lexie Allen’s life
revolves around her daughter, Sadie. She has kept her focus only on her since
the death of her husband in Iraq. She never worried about having a personal
relationship with another man again. The only luxury she holds onto is her love
of hockey, which doesn’t include the Utah Bears.

Ashton goes after what
he wants and what he wants is Lexie. She, on the other hand, has to realize
that sometimes, you have to be a little crazy to earn a happily ever after.

 We walk up to a tank that has a
bunch of seahorses and smaller fish inside. A group of kids surround it, all
excited and mesmerized.
Sadie stops her foot and whines, “I
can’t see anything.” She crosses her arms in a pout.
“Here, I’ll help.” I bend down to
pick her up, but as soon as I do, Reed pipes up too.
“I can’t see either.”
“Maybe if you eat something other
than chicken nuggets, you’ll start growing. Might want to try those veggies
next time. C’mon.” I crouch down a little to lift him up as well, a kid on each
hip. They are heavy too. Reed and Sadie lean forward a little to see even
better and I look at Lexie. “Can you see?”
She giggles. “I’m fine, thank you.”
I smile at her. Once the kids are
done looking, I put them back down and ask, “Who is ready to see the sharks?”
Sadie looks up at me, then glances at
Lexie and Reed. “ real sharks? I thought we were just going to see
the fish.”
“Duh, they’re real sharks. Sharks are
fish too, Sadie.” Reed rolls his eyes at her, and I poke his shoulder in
“But what if the glass breaks, and
they try to eat us, like on Finding Nemo?”
“Those were good sharks. Remember?”
Reed answers.
“Oh yeah.” She nods before tugging on
my shirt a little. “Mr. Ashton, are these good sharks?”
“Yep, sure are,” I reassure her. “We
are going to walk through a little tunnel, and they’ll swim around above us.”
That might not have been the best
thing to say based on how scared she looks now, but I wanted to let her know
what was going to happen. The little girl takes a deep breath, getting very
serious. “Can I hold your hand in case the glass breaks?”
“Yes, you can.” She grabs my hand and
I add, “You might need to hold Reed’s hand too.”
“Okay,” she nods in agreement as she
takes his, “but hold Mommy’s, so we don’t lose her either.”
I hold back my laugh. “All right.”
With a hand outstretched to Lexie, I ask, “Are you ready now too?”
With ease, she intertwines her fingers
with mine and nods. As we walk towards the shark exhibit, she leans in and
whispers, “If I didn’t know better, I would think you planned this.”
“I’m not that good,” I laugh.
“And here I thought you were,” she
