Contest: Win a copy of Somebody to Love

I decided to hold a contest,  I call it the end of the summer contest.    I'd like to offer to the winner a copy of my book "Somebody to Love." and a choice of one piece of jewelry from my site. (free) They are all handmade by me.  Lily's Gems    and

Here is a blurb
Sam Warner is busy working in his flower shop creating beautiful
arrangements to celebrate all the happy moments in his customer's
lives. He only wished he had something joyful to celebrate.

He was in a relationship until the day he came home to an empty
apartment and a 'Dear John' letter. Hurt and alone he decides he
doesn't want to be in another relationship ever again. But fate has
stepped in and he meets Matt Doyle, the bartender at a local bar.

Can Sam give love a second chance?

Here is a scene of them in Matt's home  they start off watching TV then one thing leads to another:

“I know you’re a big baseball fan, but I have to admit I’m partial to soccer.”

“You’re kidding, I wouldn’t have guessed it.  I tried watching it a few times but I thought it was so boring.”

“Well, don’t worry, I’ll remember not to put a game on when you’re here.”  Matt assured him.  Sam could hear the disappointment in his voice.

“You promise?” Sam asked with a smile on his face.  Matt realized he was kidding.

“Why, you!” He gave Sam a gentle shove. Sam shoved back and what started off as half-hearted, shoving turned into a playful wrestling match. The baseball game they were watching was quickly forgotten as the two men battled each other on the sofa. Sam fell onto the carpeted floor and Matt fell on top of him.

“Ha, ha,” Sam laughed.  The two men were breathing hard from the exertion. Both stopped moving suddenly and gazed deeply into each other’s eyes. Sam tentatively reached out to touch Matt’s face, like he was studying it, then moved his hand to the back of Matt’s head and pulled him down for a kiss. Matt showed Sam he was more than interested by wrapping his arms around Sam’s neck and deepening the kiss.

When they broke apart, Matt ran his fingers through Sam’s hair. “Come on.” Matt got up, shut off the TV and offered Sam his hand and led them to the bedroom.
