Game On! – Weekend Writing Warriors #8Sunday – May 29

wewriwa_square_4Welcome!  Weekend Writing Warriors  #wewriwa, is a blog hop where authors share 8-10 sentences of their work. Hope on this Memorial Day, you’ll remember those who gave their all for their country.

I’m sharing from my novella Game On! which releases on June 21.

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 for work and love. This scene is where Heath and his buddy are throwing passes on the beach and they meet Jordan and her friend, GiGi.

Jordan glanced up, snagging a spiraling football inches from their heads. The ball stung her fingers with a slap.

GiGi squeaked, dropping her bag with their drinks.

“Sorry!” the receiver said from the surf.

At least he had the decency to appear embarrassed Jordan thought.

Mr. Sandy Blond receiver rushed from the water toward them.

He had all the attributes of her favorite NFL tight end.  His brawny shoulders tapered to a waist set off by a six-pack. His gaze followed GiGi’s to the bottles littering the beach. 

“Sorry about your drinks,” he said plucking their brews and wine coolers from the sand.

GiGi eyed their buff physiques, smirked and said nodding toward their cooler, “Suppose you’ll have to share yours.”

Game On! – Weekend Writing Warriors #8Sunday – May 15

wewriwa_square_4 Happy Sunday and hope you’re have a great weekend! Weekend Writing Warriors  #wewriwa, is a blog hop where authors share 8-10 sentences of their work.

This  week I’m sharing from my novella Game On! which releases on the longest day of the year,  June 21.  And just in time to pump you up for 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 was leaving practice when his cheating ex-girlfriend called out of the blue and he ends the conversation with:  “Ancient history and I’m a time zone away now.”

He accelerated the Jeep out of the sports complex. It had taken weeks to gain distance from her manipulations and now after her call, the commercial Virginia Beach oceanfront seemed intrusive.

A June sun blazed brightly in a cloudless sky while he cruised down Sand Fiddler Lane. Ninety degrees was cool compared to summer heat in Texas. When he’d signed the six-month lease on the house, the realtor touted Sandbridge as a locals’ beach.

He pulled into the driveway and found Dugan beneath the stilted house, applying a coat of wax to the chrome of his Fat Boy Harley. He and his linebacker buddy had scraped through college classes but shined on the gridiron. They’d landed on the practice
squad of a pro team in Texas a couple of years ago, but in March the league went on strike.

Dugan paused from his task and squinted at him with brown eyes. “You look pissed.”
