Weekend Writing Warriors #75!

First off, thank you all SO much for your amazing comments last week! I didn't get a chance to reply but I want you to know how appreciative I am. You're all awesome! Today I'm sticking close to home so I'll be sure to make the rounds. And I've decided to share another excerpt from Body Check since it went over so well last week! 

Here's the blurb: Alicia Holden is the ultimate hockey fan. She eats, sleeps, and breathes the game, but there's one real reason for her devotion. And his name is Mike Converset. When an opportunity comes along to win a charity dinner with her hockey heartthrob, she leaps at the chance.

He's absolutely nothing like she imagined. Rough, tough, and in no mood to impress, Mike assumes Alicia's like every other woman who's come into his life, but he soon learns she's so much more. They share a connection that brings them closer together in mind and body. But is their romantic encounter simply a one-night stand, or can they take their passion into overtime?   

And here's an excerpt, skipping ahead a little bit. This is shortly after Mike and Alicia meet for the first time for the charity dinner. 

“So…it’s really amazing to finally meet you. I’m a huge fan of…of yours and I—” His tongue darted out to lick the crumbs from his lips and she faltered mid-sentence. “Uh, I don’t ever, um, miss a game. Even if I do, I, you know, record them, so I can watch them as soon as I get a chance. Which is usually the next day. I’ve actually, uh, lost a lot of boyfriends because of you.”
“Why’s that?”
“I’m a, um…screamer.”
