Weekend Writing Warriors – Out of Reach


Welcome friends new and old. I’m going to give you a couple more posts from the WIP I’ve been sharing before I move onto something new.

In the Blind (working title), and you can see the past posts from this WIP here. The Logline: When a head hunter finds her dream lover in a night of pitch black unrestrained passion, she fears she’ll never find him again. Fate steps in and throws the two together, but they might never discover the truth and stay in the blind.

Over the past few weeks I’ve shared Jane’s experience at Club Blind and her business opportunity that put her back in touch with Rob. Last Post Jane presented Rob with the job description for Keller’s company. He’s impressed until he learns where he’d be working. In this week’s post, I’ve skipped just a little to put us back in Rob’s POV, but Jane and Rob are still in the coffee shop. Gina is Rob’s ex-wife and she works for Keller.

Jane pulled her hand away and he let her go. The loss of her touch felt more present than the horror he once thought of ever working with Gina again. If he was honest with himself, he’d admit his apprehension had nothing to do with Gina. Nope, she was just a reminder of a commitment he let sour.

“I’m sorry to have upset you.” Her hand lay on the table just out of his reach.

He shouldn’t let his failed marriage ruin another relationship, or in this case, a career opportunity. He hadn’t even asked Jane out, yet.

They’re going to figure this out, right? Only I (and my CP) know the answer to that question. 🙂 If Rob’s not careful, Jane will drift away until she’s out of reach. <If you want, you can Tweet That> Come back next week and I’ll give you another clue.

Hope you enjoyed my eight today. Thank you so much for visiting me, it means a lot to me that you took the time to visit my little place on the web. Don’t forget to check out the other Weekend Warriorsand Saturday Spankings too.

  1. I thought I replied already but maybe it didn’t off my iPad right. So you may see a double comment.

    Anyway, I like seeing the romance from the male perspective. I find it refreshing. Nice snippet, S. J.!

  3. The Fae This is my fun side project I’m working on. I haven’t had a chance to work on it at all in the last week, but I’m hoping to get back into it. Verte and Grey have appeared in Flasher Fiction Friday a few times and Saturdays AfterDark at least once. I’m going to tease you from this one as it has the most recent writing. Bear in mind, this is a first draft.

Whatcha thinking?
