Time for another Sunday snippet. 🙂 Remember to check out the list of participating Weekend Writing Warriors when you’re done here.
For the next four weeks, I’ll be continuing with little excerpts from CUP OF SUGAR. If you’ve been following along, or you’ve already read the book, you know that new-ish neighbors Conn and Nia have taken an unexpected road trip together. After an unexpected (and seriously hot) night together in a roadside motel, they’ve arrived at Nia’s parents’ house, where Nia received some bad news about a childhood pet.
“You okay?” He kept his voice low—he could do that, since he was now standing directly behind her, close enough for her to smell his aftershave. He settled his big hands on her shoulders, gently kneading.
She groaned, which was definitely a mistake, because it made him pull her closer. He was so solid and warm, she wanted to melt into him. Let him console her about Princess. Watch him get comfortable with her family. Oh, and she wanted to rub her ass against the front of his jeans—then turn and kiss him until she couldn’t see straight. There was that.

Nia has one rule—don’t date neighbors. Simple, except the guy next door is single, handsome, and not inclined to close his blinds while naked. When her car dies, Conn takes “being neighborly” to a new level by offering a ride to her long-distance destination. Nia has resisted his looks and charm for months. Surely she can handle a few hours in his truck…
For months, Conn has blatantly put himself on display, hoping his pretty blonde neighbor would tire of secretly watching and come knock on his door for a cup of sugar—or more. No such luck—until an unusual opportunity arises. After a six-hour drive turns into a sweet-and-sexy weekend, Conn wants more than neighborly status with Nia. To get it, he must convince her to break the rule protecting her heart—by putting his on the line.
