8 Sentence Sunday #1

Posted Jan 5 2014, 7:00 am in , , ,

New Year, starting fresh. There is still more than a week until Something to Prove comes out, so I’m going to continue with sentences from that. Then, I’ll move on to Catch Your Breath, the next O’Leary book, out on July 3, 2014.

I’m skipping a few sentences from where I left off last week. Colin has kissed Elizabeth and when she hops off the stool, she wobbles. He gets clumsy when she’s nervous. He thinks she’s drunk and when she protests, she spills wine on the bar, which doesn’t help her case. Wile she cleans it up, he offers to call her a cab.

                     She spun quickly, rag in hand, to tell him no. Unfortunately, she misjudged how close he stood to her. The wine-soaked rag squished against his shirt.

                    His eyes darted north the way most men’s did to control their anger, but he looked like he was attempting to control laughter.

                    Great. Now he was laughing at her. Blood rushed to her head from anger instead of lust. “I am not drunk.”

    Hahahaha!! OMG…the poor thing. She’s going to have a hard time convincing him of that. I feel her pain, I’m such a klutz I’m often the same way.

  2. She’s on a real losing streak here, as far as convincing him she’s not drunk…funny snippet, enjoyed it!

  8. Sarah W says:

    Declaring one’s sobriety never seems to go well, even when it’s the truth!

    I can feel her frustration and embarrassment from here. . .
