Mid Week Tease – Stop Playing Around

Click to see all the Mid Week Teases here at SJsWelcome to hump day my friends. Thank you to the fabulous Sandra Bunino for bringing us together.

Today, I’m sharing from my next book to release:

In the Blind

Last Week I shared a fun conversation with Rob and his best friend, Marcus. This Week: I’ve skipped a bunch. I will give no spoilers. 🙂 Rob and Jane are being chauffeured home from Rob’s interview. Enjoy.


“Thanks for bringing me here today.”

“You’re welcome. Thanks for giving it a chance.” She tugged at her blouse. “I’m pretty sure he’ll send an attractive offer. There will probably be only one thing in it we can change, but I’ll find it.”

“You’re a shark.”


“I admire that about you. You go after what you want, don’t you?”

“In my professional life, yes, I like to believe that’s true.” She’d taken lots of chances throughout her career. In business, she wasn’t afraid to take risks. She crossed her legs and angled herself towards him.

He shifted in his seat to face her directly. “What aren’t you going after in your personal life?”

“Pretty much everything.”

“What do you want?”

She turned to look out the window. He’d laid out the question she hadn’t pushed herself to answer. Her thoughts kept drifting to Saturday night and her mystery man. He’d made her fantasies come to life, but it was this man sitting next to her, the one who might not be totally ready, who made her heart flutter uncontrollably. The two together would be explosive. Which did she want? Which could she have?

“I want trust and friendship.”

“Is that all? I can give you that.”

She shifted in the seat and looked him right in the eye. “No, that’s not all.”

“Don’t play with me.”

“I’m not—”

He shifted towards her. His body got a few inches from her, and she pushed against his chest, her eyes clamped shut. Convincing herself he was still hung up on his ex made the possibility of getting hurt highly unlikely because, before he could hurt her, he would drift out of her life. But for now he was here, close, and pushing against her hand. She let her elbow bend, and he came closer. The rich manly scent of him drove her needs higher.

She wanted him with an urgency that caused her fingers to dig around the fabric of his shirt. Desire and nerves fought for her attention. Pushing him away would be safe. She had no desire for safety.


Oh. I wonder what happens next. 😉 Come back next week and I promise to share the next bit. Also, I turned in edits last night and am expecting one more round and then release day will be here. Wahoo!

Coming-SoonUnofficial Blurb:

Jane thinks she’s ready to take the risks her business and love life desperately need. Rob’s still punishing himself for a broken relationship that wasn’t meant to last. When the pair let an opportunity pass them by, fate steps in and throws them back together.

An evening of pitch black unrestrained passion at Club Blind opens her eyes to life’s possibilities. Now, if they don’t fight past their personal demons, they might never truly discover what they need most. If they can open their hearts, it might lead them directly to each other where they can discover their truth. If not, they may forever stay in the blind.
