Weekend Writing Warriors #167!

Hello, my friends! Happy Sunday and Happy Father's Day to all the daddies out there! My gift to you - more 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: 

            “What might what be?” Collin asked as he weaved his way between the two and slithered up next to her again, like the snake that he was.
            Sydney stuttered, “Oh, uh…the, um, coffee flavor of the month.”
            “Irish cream,” Sam replied without missing a beat. Mmm. Maybe Sam was part Irish. She certainly felt like doing a jig when he shot her a wink before slipping away with the promise of preparing her order to her exact specifications. Collin had no idea what was in store. She just hoped Sam made it all happen right quick, 'cause touchy-feely man picked up where he left off, and she could only hold back her gag reflex for so long. 

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

I just finished my last week of teaching for the semester, and now we're entering exam/marking/report card week. Not fun for the students, but even less fun for the teachers. I finally see the light, though! I got to FaceTime with my dad this morning (the best daddy in the world) who's at my brother's place, spending quality time with baby Charlie. It's a test run for him, since he and I are on babysitting duty next weekend. Wish us luck! Have a fabulous week, everyone!

    1. Oh, the BF is still very much in the picture. We spent all day yesterday together, I got to meet some of his friends, and today we're spending time with his dad's side of the fam for a pool party. All is perfectly well. :) Sending love right back to you, my friend! xoxo

  2. Hee, touchy-feely man. I want to know what sort of plan they've hatched, too! And I guess we can definitely cross Collin off the list.

    I fully expect you'll be able to hatch another story idea after the babysitting expedition next weekend! Sounds like fun!

  3. Ooh, I can't wait to see what Sam brews up. Nothing worse than touchy-feels from someone who gives you the creeps.

  5. From this excerpt, I'd say the barrista is well ahead of the felon.

  6. I'd think she might be able to ask him to stop invading her personal space, without too much danger. But I guess she feels stuck with him--he's definitely a case of looking better on paper (or the screen.)

  7. Eavesdroppers! They always pop in when you say something you didn't want them to hear. :)

  8. As someone who isn't very touchy-feely herself, I can definitely relate to Sydney's uncomfortable state. Good thing she has Sam!
