Weekend Writing Warriors #101!

Merry January, my friends! Hope your new year is off to a stellar start! It's been ridonculously cold here in the nation's capital, but thankfully we have steamy stories to help keep us warm, like the one I'm sharing with all of you. So let's continue then with more from Adventures in Online Dating!

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! :-D

And here's an excerpt, continuing from where we left off: 


            “Now you’re flirting with me.”
            Oh hell yes, she was. “Well, you know...you’re, uh...not at all terrifying without the make-up, and the nose, and you, um...you’ve been good about not honking the horn.” She was horny enough without the help.
            His lips quirked into a grin. “You’re a rambler too. Are you nervous?”
            “Maybe a little.” Understatement of the year.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!

  3. I love how awkwardly this is proceeding. It seems even the best first dates can feel really weird, maybe especially when you like each other. Great snippet as always!

  11. Nothing helps you be less nervous than realizing the other person is anxious, too. Love the "horny" joke. :)
