Six Sentence Sunday #17!

Oh my goodness! It's Sunday again! Today is an especially wonderful Sunday thanks to daylight saving time. One more hour of sleep! Wooohoooo! :D Hope you're all doing well and ready for some good times! For those who've never been around these parts, I try to share snippets every week that are fun and sexy with a hint of quirkiness. Or, as my tagline goes, a kiss of quirk with your kink. Today's excerpt is from my January 2013 release, Cheapskates in Love! Here's the blurb: 

It's couples' skating night down at the local rink and Elena Armstrong can't seem to keep her cocky jock blind date around long enough to knee him in the balls. Sadly, she was too much of a cheapskate to pay for a membership to an online dating site and based everything on Leonard's personality profile alone. Big mistake. 

At the opposite end of the rink, Ben Kessel, another cheapskate on a blind date with Iris, the ice princess, is having a similarly miserable time. Elena, a hater of all things sports-related, inches out into the skating world butt-first and collides with Ben. After sharing their hilarious and horrifying dates-gone-wrong stories, the two disappear and make everything right again on the floor in the players’ dressing room. Almost everything. They forget to exchange numbers. Now these two cheapskates need to make the ultimate sacrifice: pay for a membership to the online dating site so they can track each other down. But is the possibility of love really worth the price of $24.95 per month?  

And now, an excerpt! This is Elena sharing with Ben her opinion of online dating. 

"When you have a free account you can’t see any of their pictures, but the people with paid memberships can see yours any old time they want. Right now, I bet like forty bald men with beer guts are checking me out online.” He snorted. “We’re at a huge disadvantage. We have to be all, ‘your profile spoke to me, and I don’t really care how you look because I can’t see you anyway. It’s what’s inside that counts’…which is total bullshit.” 

Hope you enjoyed! :D Every Wednesday I have a segment on my blog called Online Dating 101, so if you appreciated this, you'll definitely get a kick out of it! See you soon!
