Weekend Writing Warriors #156!

Greetings, friends, fellow writers, and readers! You know what today is? Sunday! It's also my birthday! Here, have a present!

Here's the blurb for Adventures in Online Dating: 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: 

Moments later her coffee was delivered. She snatched it up, murmuring, “Gimme,” before taking a much-needed gulp.  
            A deliciously masculine laugh floated into her ears. “Awfully demanding. You treat your men like you treat your coffee?”
            Her head jerked up and she locked eyes with the super-sexy barista from her last visit. The new guy. “Sam…right?” As if she didn’t know.
            He beamed, clearly pleased she remembered his name.

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

So...I'm off to celebrate my birthday now with the BF and his folks. For those who missed my post last week, he's had his surgery for the broken humerus bone, and it went very well. I'll be there to kiss it better today. :) Wishing all of you a wonderful, exciting week ahead! Mine certainly will be, but I'll tell you more about that next week!

  1. Good snippet but I love our family stories better. So what's the secret? and may I be flower girl?

  2. I think he wants to find out more about her than that she has a good memory. Great snippet

  3. Happy Birthday! Great snippet. I get the impression this is a fun read. Glad your BF' s surgery went well. Enjoy your celebrations!

  4. Happy Birthday! Hey, she treats her coffee like I treat my coffee. Let's leave the men out of it; sexy barista should know better. :-)

  5. Happy Birthday! OMG, now the barista...such fun the way you built all the twists and turns and choices into this story. Well done!

  6. Ooh, glad she's getting back to the sexy barista. She needs to check out who's right under her nose -er, on the other side of the counter, right?

    Hope you have a fabulous birthday! I have no doubt you'll make BF feel all better!

  7. It's never wise to get between someone and their caffeine fix.

    Happy birthday!

  8. Happy belated birthday. I enjoyed this week's snippet. :)
