This week I’m sharing a few lines from my WIP, Full Court Press. Here’s a little blurb:
Danny McMillan is the hotshot new head football coach fresh from D2 purgatory. Kate Snyder is one of the winning-est coaches in D1 women’s basketball. She’s also a former Wolcott University Warrior and a local legend.
It’s a battle of the sexes, but this time the stakes are higher. She thinks he’s a misogynist, if a sexy one. He thinks she’s overly aggressive, but can’t help but be intrigued by her. Their chemistry threatens to explode, but they both know allowing their relationship to become public would be career suicide.
“I think intentionally fouling a player to stop the clock should be outlawed.”
She blinked as she straightened to her full height and turned back to him, her body braced as if it might take every inch of her strength to absorb the sheer absurdity of his statement. “I’ve heard you have issues with clock management.”
“I don’t see the point in delaying the inevitable. I play straight, I play tough, and I play through to the end. No trick plays, just the fundamentals.” Her lips parted, and it was all he could do to resist their blatant invitation. “Make your fouls as flagrant as you want, Kate, but the outcome is going to be the same.”
That’s it for this week. Be sure to check out the work of all my fellow Weekend Writing Warriors!
