Last week I shared a smexy excerpt from my hockey story, Body Check. This week I'm gonna rewind a bit to fill in some of the blanks. But before that, 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 the excerpt!
“It wasn’t just the lure of dinner with you that brought me here tonight, Mike. I felt a connection to you, that you would choose this particular charity over all others. I had no idea about your brother, but I understand what you’re going through.”
His expression softened. His shoulders relaxed. A whoosh of breath passed through his lips.
“I know what it’s like to love a kid with autism,” she continued when it was clear he was giving her the floor. “There’s nothing in the world that you won’t do to protect them.”
That should hopefully answer some questions as to the 'connection' they share. Next week I'm gonna switch things up again so stay tuned! Thanks for coming out, and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!
