This week I’m sharing from my novella Game On! which releases in June. Just in time to get you ready to football season. Heath Lancaster was happy to be on the practice squad on an NFL team, but instead of a lucky break taking him to the next level, a league-wide strike leaves him unemployed. A new semi-pro league in Virginia Beach give him another opportunity, where a bikini-clad hottie snags one of his passes on the beach and offers him a tour of the area . . . Heath has just finished practice and his planning to meet his teammate, Dugan, at the Virginia Beach oceanfront.
He clicked on his seat belt and started the open-door jeep when as his cell phone went off. For the first time in weeks, he answered without checking the display.
“Hey, babe,” Sandy cooed.
After a couple of weeks without calls, he figured she’d given up. “How’s Ben?”
What else should he say to the woman he’d found with her tongue down a friend’s throat? Make that former friend.
“You misunderstood, he was inconsolable after Marcie left him.”
“Yeah right, so you were just giving him a little mouth to mouth resuscitation?”
Silence filled his ear before he shot back, “Ancient history and I’m a time zone away now.”
