Cup of Sugar,  Sunday Snippets

Sunday Snippet – CUP OF SUGAR – Invitation Accepted

Time for another eight-sentence Sunday snippet from CUP OF SUGAR. Click here for a list of other participants in the Weekend Writing Warriors meme.

Today’s bite-sized excerpt follows closely after last week’s offering. New-ish neighbors Conn and Nia are spending New Year’s Eve snowed in at a rural motel.  (Catch up on past posts from the story here.) They’re watching the celebration from New York’s Times Square, and Nia has invited Conn to sit beside her on the room’s only bed for a better view of the TV. (I’m sure she has no ulterior motives. 😉 )

Well, Conn is a big, solid guy and you know how squishy and wobbly those motel-room beds can be…

Invitation accepted. The springy mattress pitched her against him as he edged closer. Her breast pressed against his biceps and her hand landed high on his quadriceps. A couple inches to the north and she’d have had something entirely different to grab hold of.

“Sorry.” Her apology came out soft and breathy. She hadn’t stopped leaning on his arm — nor had she looked away.

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.
