Thank you all so much for making 2014 a great year!

This week, I’m sharing 8 from my New Year’s Eve gone wrong story, The Last First Date:

“You seriously think I let my grandmother set me up on a blind date on New Year’s Eve in hopes of getting laid?”


Reluctant laughter expelled a little of the heat inside him, but he still simmered when she met his gaze. The stark vulnerability he saw in her eyes leached the fight from his bones. “Trust me, if I was after sex I’d keep my grandmother as far from the mix as humanly possible.”

Jessica looked up at him from under her lashes. “If not sex, then why? I can’t imagine you have a hard time finding a date, and you don’t strike me as the kind of guy who can’t get enough of doing the Electric Slide.”


Be sure to check out all of the Weekend Writing Warriors excerpts and come back next year!
