Welcome Back to Mid Week Tease!
You guys, it’s June!!! Can you believe it? I was coasting through May in my empty house, living pretty care free with basically nothing to clean and then bam, June showed up the other day! This means in a couple weeks, I’ll be driving cross-country to set up shop back at home in San Diego. I’ll really miss it here in Northern Virginia. After all, this is where the Sin Pointe Novels have all been written. I guess Stefan will be able to claim that he began here and hopefully with fingers crossed, made his way to all of you from California. A big, squishy hug to Sandra Bunino for hostessing us each week and to all of you, thanks for reading! My tease today picks back up where we left off last time with the boys, Will and Stefan, at the gas station and their observation of Pump Five.
From the unedited work in progress, Wicked Flower (A Sin Pointe Novel, #5)… Oh, and the song I’ve been listening to while writing Stefan and Dani’s scenes, A Woman’s Touch by Casey James with help from my favorite real life bass player, Dino Villanueva 🙂 (PS-I shot this video this past September at the Virginia State Fair…I am clearly not a videographer! Haha, but enjoy the song. It’s a good one. I promise.)
“Pump five? Predictable. She’s gorgeous in a next door gorgeous kind of way. Not your type, though.”
Stefan just grinned and did his best to mess up Will’s mohawk hanging limply to one side.
“Says who? She’s hot. She’s my type.”
“Three words. Black, as in her hair, it’s not red. Sober, as in she’s not drunk therefore not falling all over you. And employed, as in…”
“Wait, how can you tell she’s employed?” Stefan asked, eager to hear this one and ticked that Will insinuated he only got laid when alcohol was involved. Sober sex ranked right up there with safe sex. Both must haves.
“Well, she has a car and she’s paying for her own gas. And uh, her shoes. The only woman I’ve ever seen in a pair like that was my dental hygienist.”
What could Stefan say?
Sin Pointe men knew women and although Will didn’t touch, perhaps he did more looking than Stefan was aware of.
Rather than argue the mountain of other explanations for those fine points, Stefan conceded. Sort of. Will deserved a little teasing. “Yeah, yeah, yeah. I get it. She’s got a job which would seriously get in the way of all those late nights…”
But he stopped there.
Something about the way she looked like she’d love nothing more than to kick the shit out of the gas pump some more and strangle someone with the fuel hose killed the playful vibe of his chatter with Will. Something told Stefan she could really hurt a man. And hell, now that thought piqued him too.
“Hey, you good to get the gas? I’m gonna head inside,” Stefan said, remembering why he’d snatched his drummer up and dragged him on this trip. Neither one of them were doing so hot on their own at the moment with the band’s recent move to Nashville, even though it had been a year. He could pretend all he wanted, but deep down Stefan knew it might be time to take settling down in the band’s new hometown seriously.
That’s my tease this week! Hope to see you back next week for more.
Now off you go for some tantalizing snippets by some outstanding authors!
