Here's the blurb: After too many failed relationships, too many shots of tequila, and too many not-so-gentle nudges from her best friend, Sydney Montrose joins an online dating site in hopes of finding THE ONE. During her adventures, she crosses paths with a professional gamer who lives with his parents, a sweet and sarcastic parking enforcement officer, a flirty barista, a mystery man, a touchy-feely former felon, and a clown. Which one will she choose? Well, that's all entirely up to you!
And here's an excerpt (which is slightly more than eight sentences so I could wrap up this scene), continuing from where we left off:
She read his first text, her cheeks flaming at the blatant flirtation. The second was just as suggestive, and in the third, he flat out told her to drop any plans she might have and meet up with him ASAP. Her hormones were in overdrive. Charlie seemed like the type who took things slow, besides dive-bombing strangers with hugs; Collin knew what he wanted and wasn’t shy about saying so. Sometimes a woman found that damn appealing...which is why she was considering bolting.
If she left now, she could start fresh with Collin. Charlie wouldn’t need to know. The very idea that she could ever bring herself to love a clown was preposterous. If she stayed, she’d give the clown false hope.
Her fingernails danced against the tabletop. She glanced toward the washroom. Taking a long drink of her lukewarm coffee, she rose to her feet.
So now, my dear readers, it's up to you! Do you think Syd should give Charlie a chance, or should she get out while she can and try Collin on for size? Let me know in your comment!
