Contemporary Romantic Suspense

The last time a guy bought you a drink, how did it happen? Did he order one and have it delivered to your table? Did he ask you what you liked to drink and buy it for you? Did he sit beside you and nod to the bartender for a second round? Choices. Always choices.

When Jessie said “Let’s get outta here,” King was ready to do just that. Then he thought again. Being suspicious had kept him alive this long. Why give that up, even for a beautiful woman. She might be hot and she was definitely interested. But he didn’t want to die.
King whirled his finger at Keeper, the barman. When the cold cans of beer appeared, King regretted more than ever that they weren’t somewhere else. The choices at the Ice House were limited to beer, beer and beer. If the machine was working, margaritas might be available but never for long.
“What’s the hurry?” King handed her one of the bottles. What would she order if they were in a nice bar, he wonderd, as she took the beer, her fingers brushing his. A glass of red wine? A Long Island Iced Tea? A shot of tequila? Would they have a leisurely meal, listen to some music, go home and take it slow? Or would she rather hit the clubs, take in a movie or see a concert?
Jessie took her first sip. He finished his in in two swallows. Even though, he’d told her to be patient, he wasn’t sure he could be. He suddenly had one thing on his mind and that was leaving.
King didn’t have time for the niceties and he doubted Jessie did either. Anyone could die at any time, but their chances were greater than the average person. Arresting a stranger, stalking a killer, working a sting… The man King was searching could catch up with them then it’d all be over. He had no idea how long he had to live before that happened. Working undercover, Jessie had risks almost as great.
They had to live now, he decided. Later might not be an option.
What’s the best pickup line you’ve ever heard? Or the worst? Stay with my blog tour to learn what happens next with Jessie and King.
