Weekend Writing Warriors #110!

Hello, my warrior friends! Happy Sunday! Today I will feel like a true warrior because I'm having an online writing retreat with my author pal, Maggie Wells, and, all told, we have to plans to write for close to 8 hours! Whew. Wish us luck! 

For now, enjoy another 8 sentences 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: 

“Sydney, right?”
            “Yeah, uh, yes, that’s me,” she answered as she stood. He swept her into a hug and the surprise she felt at the gesture was soon overshadowed by the exquisite feel of his arms wrapping around her. Holy hell, she was melting. And he smelled really, really good, like fabric softener mixed with hints of cologne--sweet and spicy.
            “I’ll grab us some coffees and then we can chat.” He turned and headed for the counter and she admired his denim-encased ass the entire way. It didn’t bother her that he wore a tank top with those jeans because they’d agreed to go casual, and, quite frankly, the man rocked the grunge-look.

So, what do you think? Joe's batting 1000 so far, eh? We'll see if he can keep it up. ;) Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to visit the other Weekend Writing Warriors!

All right, it's time to kick off the retreat! Wishing the rest of you a productive Sunday and a fabulous week ahead! :)

  1. I'm a bit worried about all that cologne. :-) Hope it works out for her.

  2. She's a bit hot to trot with Joe. I say be cool and see what happens.
    What could be better than writing with a friend? Let's see what you both come up with at the end of the day.

  3. I loved cuppa Joe! I wish we'd had a chance to see more of him...much more. *leers*

  4. We shall see how Sydney feels after they have a chance to talk and get to know each other.

  5. "We'll see if he CAN KEEP IT UP?!?!" Hee, yes, I'm 12 today...but I'm sure Sydney is thinking the same thing. Not so sure about the tank top, though. Have fun with your massive writing day! Give your writing pal a hug from me!

  6. He does sound excellent (although I'd probably be sneezing from the combination of fabric softener and cologne LOL). Can't wait to see what develops in this storyline, great snippet.

  7. He's a hugger, I see. That'd bother me, but Sydney seems more than okay with it!

  8. I really like him. Nice snippet, Evelyn!

  9. I can't believe I missed date night but I'm caught up now :) Hope he gets her coffee order right.
