Weekend Writing Warriors #159!

Hello, my dear friends. Thanks again for all the support you've shown me during these difficult weeks. You're a fabulous group of people and I'm grateful to know you. :) Here's more from Adventures in Online Dating!

But first, le 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: 

“Hey, pretty lady,” he said in a husky voice. A voice that was a perfect freakin’ match for his body. Sexy texts were one thing, but until you officially met a guy, there was no telling what he’d sound like. Collin’s voice was like foreplay. It made her knees weak and her toes tingle. And he called her pretty, and he was rubbing her upper arm with his strong, manly hand. And she hadn’t said a thing in response.
            “Huh—iii. Hi. Hey, Collin.” 

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

I'm sad to report that we lost another member of our family. My sweet great-uncle Jack, who was a wonderfully kind, generous, intelligent, and creative man. The funeral was yesterday, at the same place we had my mom's funeral, and they used the same minister too. She did such a fantastic job for us the last time, so we had to get her again. It was comforting seeing her, as well as many of my relatives. Although Jack lived a long (91 years) and glorious life, he died unexpectedly in a car accident, and this serves as yet another reminder of how precious each and every day is. I wish you all a safe, happy, and healthy week, my friends. xo

  1. Laughing

    I have had that before.

    The brain and mouth disconnect and you are left to make an idiot of yourself!

  2. Some men- they just shut off the connection between brain and mouth.

    So sorry about your great-uncle! Life is giving you a walloping right now. *hugs*

  3. One sad event after another and they never live long enough no matter what age. Makes me think I should stop driving. YIKES. About the snippet. He can't be the one. Too hot-too okay I'll take him for a while.

  4. Very sorry to hear about your great-uncle. Sending good thoughts. Enjoyed the snippet, loved how distracted she was.

  5. So sorry for your loss. Lovely snippet.

  6. Wow, that was smooth. She might need to check her mouth for drool!

    My condolences for your loss. *hugs*

  7. Unless I'm mistaken, she came to this meeting primed to be turned on, right?

    It's unfortunate and painful how tragedy can pierce right through our authorial fantasies. My sympathy, Evelyn.

  8. Your writing is smooth as silk. :-)

    I'm so sorry about your uncle. Hugs to you, Evelyn. <3

    1. I wonder what that little emoticon means...and just how did he get there?? lol. I seriously have no idea.

  9. Oh my! *fans herself* Great snippet. Can't wait to learn more about Collin.
    I'm so sorry about your uncle. Hugs!
