Six Sentence Sunday #14!

Hello and good morning, my friends! I can't believe I've been doing this for fourteen weeks already, and I'm still having an absolute blast! Hope you're enjoying reading the excerpts as much as I enjoy sharing them and writing them in the first place. :) Today's six come 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 heeeeere's my six sentences!

          At present, Mr. Smooth was currently skating circles around every man, woman, and hormonal teenager in the public rink like he was frigging Dick Button. Well, he wasn’t getting his dick unbuttoned tonight. She was ready to pull a Tonya Harding on the jerk.
          “Hey, Elena,” the big dope called to her on his twelfth trip around the oval, “let go of the boards and come skate with me!” He didn’t even wait for a response, the bastard. He could have at least paused long enough for her to tug off her skate and whip it at his giant head. 

Needless to say, the 'big dope' isn't Ben 'kiss-me' Kessel. :D Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful day!
