Weekend Writing Warriors... LICK

Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors with eight from LICK. My Contemporary NA out 1st July. Here’s the quickie blurb for those unfamiliar with the story...

Evelyn Thomas’s plans for celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure as hell never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hang-over to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man beside her, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.

We’re continuing straight on from last week. Here’s the link if you’d like a catch-up. Our hero has just found her a bottle of asprin. 

Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums!

     Sweet relief. I loved him, whoever he was and whatever he’d seen.
     “You need water,” he said, and got busy filling a glass from the sink behind him.
     The bathroom was tiny. We both barely fit. Given Lauren’s and my money situation, the hotel had been the best we could afford. She’d been determined to celebrate my birthday in style. My goal had been a bit different.


  1. I was looking forward to this snippet :-) I wonder what sort of birthday celebration she had in mind...

  2. Another great snippet. You do the first person voice really well!

  3. It would be hard to top what must have happened if you're speaking of birthday celebrations.

  4. Ooh and what was her goal, I now wonder LOL? Very effective excerpt, enjoying this story very much!

  5. And...? I'm loving these snippets :)

  6. Sounds like the kind of birthday you either really want to remember or really want to forget! At least the stranger is nice. :) Loved this snippet!

  7. Is Lauren her friend she went to Vegas with? This is going to get interesting. Reality is going to set in. I'm dying to know what she did or didn't do/

  8. This sounds pretty bad but at least he is not a bad guy.
    I wonder where is her friend.
