Oh my goodness! Where did this week go? It’s already that time again! What time, you ask! It’s Mid-Week Tease time! As most of you know, I love this blog post feature that Author Sandra Bunino hosts and allows me, and others, to participate in every week. Mid-Week Tease allows us authors to share a snippet of a new release, a backlisted title or a WIP. Aside from having the opportunity to share a little part of my own work, I also get to read snippets of other authors and get to be introduced to amazing authors and books. Come along for the ride!
Since November 1, I’ve been plugging away at a story that has been sitting with me for well over a year now. The characters have talked to me on a daily basis and I have a notebook full of research, scene ideas and dialogue. Thanks to #Nanowrimo I’ve forced myself to sit down and get this story told! And I couldn’t be happier. Drew and Becca play off each other so well. It’s been fun to finally sit down and write for them. Last week, I gave you a snippet from the beginning of the story when Becca and Drew first meet. This week I’m giving you a peek into the time Drew runs into Becca at the Red Barn – a country line dancing bar. She’s standing at the bar ordering beers for her and a friend when Drew spots her. Enjoy! (And please be kind, this is an unedited rough draft.) © Jessica Jayne
“Funny meeting you here, Blondie,” he whispered, leaning down close to her ear. Her body shuddered at his words and he realized that she recognized his voice. That made his cock thicken even more. She could play hard to get, but he affected her just as much as she affected him. And that thought made him heady.
Turning her head just slightly, her lips sat just inches away from his. It took all the strength Drew could muster to keep from pressing his lips to hers. He wanted to taste her. He wanted to kiss her. He wanted to do so many things to her and with her. From the moment he met her, she stirred something in him… something that made him want more. What that more was he wasn’t entirely sure. All he knew was he wanted to get to know her. Sure, he wanted between her legs… more than anything… but it was more than that.
“My name’s not Blondie, Andy,” she said with a cocky smile. Her minty breath hit him in the face. Her green eyes sparkled as her gaze traveled over his face, clearly assessing his reaction to her calling him Andy. Her smile had Drew’s knees buckle just a bit. It was so sexy. He wondered if that same smile would be plastered on her face when he sunk deep inside her. God, he wanted this woman. With his face still close to her ear, her vanilla scent enveloped him and his cock twitched in his pants.
“You’ll always be Blondie to me,” he said, burying his nose in her hair and inhaling slowly. “I’ll even contemplate letting you call me Andy if you let me take you out on the dance floor on the next slow song.” Her breath stopped at his words.
“What? No ass kicking? I thought ‘Andy’ was forbidden,” she said, with a hint of sarcasm. His hand slid down her bare arm, down to her hip and he pulled her back against him. Her eyes widened and a slight gasp escaped as her backside came into contact with his pelvis. Her softness against his hardness felt like heaven.
“There’s plenty of forbidden things I want to do to you, Blondie,” he breathed into her ear. “But kicking your ass isn’t at the top of that long list though wrestling could be some interesting foreplay.” Her breath hitched in her chest and her eyes fluttered closed momentarily.
If you missed last week’s tease, you may have missed my vision of Drew Hayworth. Don’t sweat it. Colin Wayne is my inspiration for this character and if you don’t know Colin Wayne, you should! Find him here: http://www.colinwayne.com/ and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/colinwayneofficial. But the picture below is the one that made Drew a reality for me! 🙂
