Weekend Writing Warrior – 7/5/15

Posted on Jul 5, 2015 by Maggie Wells   3 Comments | Posted in Blog

More from my current WIP, Play Dates, the first book in what I hope will be a series featuring some hot single dads and the women who capture their hearts! Colm’s a little introspective after the fact.

****

From the moment he first saw her at the playground, he’d been drawn to her. Throughout dinner, he’d tried to convince himself that it was physical attraction and nothing more. But even that was bad enough. He didn’t want a one-time encounter with a complicated woman to be the yardstick he used to measure any future relationship he might have.

His attraction to Monica was more than physical, and that wasn’t good. He liked her laugh. Loved her quick wit and curious nature. Wanted to know more about her. Why did she pile ten thousand pillows on her bed? Did it bother her that he let his son play with dolls? Would he like her any less if it did?

****

Thanks for reading! Let me know what you think, and be sure to check out all of my fellow Weekend Writing Warriors!

    Aww, he’s got it bad. And just so he knows, in case things don’t work out with Monnie, I don’t mind one bit that his son plays with dolls. *bats eyelashes* 😀

    He certainly is thinking hard about all of this! Enjoyed the excerpt…

    I love that he already knows Monica is something special, so special that he’s going to be judging future relationships by her! Awesome couple – they certainly have snagged my interest!
