Sunday Snippet time, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.
This week’s eight sentence excerpt is from CROSSING THE LINE, and follows directly after last week’s snippet. So, to refresh, Derrick and Hanna are having dinner in a small, intimate restaurant with Derrick’s best friend, Jeremy, who is joining the married couple for a very hot weekend. This scene is from Jeremy’s point of view.
“I was thinking about our pact from way back—that we’d never let a woman come between us. We broke that deal today, D, literally.”
“Yeah, I guess we did.” Derrick leaned forward, one arm on the table and one beneath. A couple seconds later, Hanna’s breath hitched. “And we’re gonna break it again. Many, many times.”
Lifelong best friends Derrick and Jeremy met Hanna at a bar ten years ago. Both wanted her—one married her. Now the other man has been invited to join in for one hot weekend.
Everything would’ve been fine if they’d had their fun that weekend, then gone back to normal. But they didn’t. And when past demons resurface, things will never be the same—for any of them.
