Weekend Writing Warriors... Lick.



Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors. We’re continuing straight on with another eight from 'Lick' - Book 1 in the Stage Dive series. Yep, that is the title. What do you think? A lovely guitar referencing double entendre, no? Lick will be out 1st July. I’m hoping to have a smokin’ hot cover to show you sometime soon.

Here’s last week’s excerpt if you’d like to do a catch up. Our girl has woken up on a bathroom floor in Vegas. As you do. Oh, don’t give me that innocent look. I know you’re there every other weekend, streaking down the strip getting chased by cops. You racy thing, you. RAWR!

So, our poor hung over girl, she is not alone…




     A blackbird had been inked into the side of his neck, the tip of its wing reaching up behind his ear. I still had on my pretty white party dress, compliments of Mom. But he wore just a pair of jeans, some scuffed black boots, and a loose white bandage on his forearm.
     Those jeans ... he wore them well. They sat invitingly low on his hips and fit in all the right ways. Even my monster hangover couldn’t detract from the view.
     “Aspirin?” he asked.
     And I was ogling him.

  1. I'd be ogling him too... he sounds delicious!
    And yes, I like the double entendre, especially considering if you start going into detail about the pretty awesome abs I'm sure he has and possibly one of those sexy trails from belly to...
    Yep, Lick sound about right to me!!!

    1. You're right, Cath. A treasure trail is a beautiful thing. Glad you approve of Lick. I think it's cute as. Might need to post some inspiration pictures of our hero on fb, me thinks. That could be a ... nice, productive way to waste some time. :)

    1. Thanks, Georgie! So glad you like him. I'm with Cathryn Hein on the "I want to have sex with all my heroes" philosophy. But that's only natural, right?
