Sunday snippet time again. Thanks for stopping by — I appreciate & love all your comments! Today’s eight-sentences are part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme. Check out all the participants by clicking that link.

This week, it’s a bit more from one of my works in progress, the childhood friends to lovers story of Matthias and Caroline. You can find other snippets by clicking here.

In this excerpt, Matthias and Caroline are about to go out for dinner. To catch up after thirteen years apart, or maybe it’s a date, Caroline’s not sure. As a gentleman should, he’s helping her into her coat, and…

“You have very soft skin—just like I always imagined it would be.”

Caroline turned in his arms, sacrificing the touch to see his face. “You thought about how my skin would feel?”

“Remember all the times I was in your bedroom?”

Oh god, this was it. “Every one of them, yes.”

“You had all those bottles of lotion on your dresser. That either meant you had the softest skin in the world or some sort of eczema problem.”


I hope you’ve enjoyed these early snippets. I’ll get back to posting from this one in the future, but starting next week, I’ll be switching to my soon-to-be-released book, BODY OF WORK. I hope you’ll come back to check out the hulking, ginger-haired personal trainer and the petite photographer who both think it’d be best to stay away from each other, but can’t seem to do that.

Have an awesome day! 🙂

  1. Love the last sentence in this extract – it turns the previous conversation from being slightly cheesy towards banter 🙂

  2. I love how this conversation is going along so promisingly and then he has to be a guy and mention the eczema thing LOL! Terrific snippet. It definitely feels as if they’ve known each other forever, you really capture the tone.

  3. I loved how you built the tension and defused it with humour that made – even in this small snippet – your characters so human and three dimensional.
