Book Excerpt part 1: Meet Cole
Thought it might be fun to share a few passages from the manuscript I recently finished. No, it's not a sequel to THE FALL OF OUR SECRETS, sorry about that. That doesn't exist, at least not yet.
The working title for this is WITH AND WITHOUT YOU (more info here). Meet Cole:
Danni was invisible to Cole until the night she wasn’t anymore. She was sitting on somebody’s couch at a New Year’s Eve party when he appeared in her space, standing in front of her so that her immediate field of vision was filled with his crotch. He handed her a red plastic cup of beer and sat down.
“You’re Derek’s sister, right?”
She nodded and brought the cup to her lips, acutely aware of his body flush against hers on the little couch, his football player’s build tilting her toward him.
“You look hot tonight.”
Danni blushed a furious red, laughing. “Thanks?” This was weird. Cole had never said more than a short ‘hey’ or ‘what’s up’ to her before.
“We should go out sometime. How come I never see you around?” His gaze dropped for just a moment to her chest before meeting her eyes again.
“Um.” Really? She didn’t even know how to answer that. She wondered if he would remember her name tomorrow. She resisted the urge to check her top and make sure she wasn’t popping out of it.
Cole leaned in so that his face was inches from hers. His hand was on her knee. “You wanna get high?”
Cole was only the hottest guy at their school. And he was talking to her. Asking her out. Wait, was he asking her out? Either way. Tall and fair, his eyes bluer than hers, Cole was beautiful.
