Welcome friends new and old. I missed you last week. I hope you missed me too. This is the last week, for now, that I’ll be sharing from In the Blind. You’ll see it again, if I sell it. My fingers are crossed.
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 many weeks I’ve shared Jane’s experience at Club Blind and her business opportunity that put her back in touch with Rob. Rob isn’t keen on Jane’s job opportunity. It’s for the company his ex-wife works for. Last Post Rob decided he wasn’t letting Jane get away or the opportunity she presented. In this week’s post, they’re on their way to the interview when Rob decides he better tell her about his ex-wife.
As they neared an alley, he took her hand and steered her around the corner into the empty lane.
“What are you doing?” She looked at him like he’d lost his mind.
“I need to tell you about my ex.”
“No, you really don’t.”
“Jane, let me share this with you.” He stroked her face and tucked a strand of hair behind her ear. It was an intimacy he had no right to, but one he wanted.
Will he earn her trust or scare her away? <If you want, you can Tweet That>
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 Warriors, and Saturday Spankings too.
What about the ex???? No, don’t stop there! Lol. Keeping my fingers crossed for you to sell this one.
I think he’ll scare her away, talking about an ex is generally not good…
(at least in my short experience.)
Tense moment, l hope she listens to him and can’t wait to hear what he’s going to say!
That was a terrible place to stop! 😉 Terrific snippet! I’m dying to know what he’s going to tell her.
I’m wondering whether or not that gesture he made at the end will remind her of Club Blind and will she realize who he is? This is such an interesting story! Crossing my fingers for you as well.
Interesting dilemma you’ve created for them! and no more snippets to come from this one???? Best wishes with the story, enjoyed today’s excerpt!
S.J. Maylee: master (mistress?) of the cliffhanger snippet! Wondering if there is more than the average baggage going on regarding the ex-wife. Good luck on selling this one. :o)
You cannot not post from the story next week! It isn’t far to stop there. Good luck with your submissions. I tweeted.
You can’t stop here – I need to know more!!! 🙂
No guy talks about his ex if he isn’t totally self-absorbed… lol liked the snipet!
Love that “an intimacy he had no right to” like. Super! I agree with the rest of the comments that it was a dirty trick to stop there! GAH! What’s she gonna do?
I like how you use the word “blind” and an intimacy he had no right to–nice touch
Maybe she’ll recognize his touch from the club.
Oh, man. I want to know about the ex!
No! You can’t stop sharing! I love this story. Fingers crossed you’ll sell it quickly.
Ha! I dunno. Trust or scare away… 🙂 Great 8! I can hardly wait to read this one, S.J. 🙂
I tweeted. Neat twitter tool. 🙂
Hmm…now I’m wondering why he needed to tell her and to tell her then specifically. Can’t wait to beta this one! 🙂
I love the tenderness here! And what about that ex? *stomps foot*
Why the urgent need to tell her I wonder? And will she recognize the touch? Ugh, what a place to stop! Good luck with submissions.

Intriguing snippet. I want to know what he wants to tell her.
You little tease! I’ve got my fingers crossed for you and this story — it’s so very intriguing, and we all want to read more of it!
I have been MIA for a bit, so I need to catch up on your excerpts, but this one was great! I loved the last line.
Umm… what about his ex? Are you really going to just leave us hanging here with no more snippets from this one? Argh!
Love the hair touching. Nice showing, not telling. And the ex…hmmmm. Is she a crazy woman?
Oh you tease to stop right there! Great snippet, SJ. I want to know what’s the big deal about the ex and what she’ll say. 🙂
