Hump Day Hook - Week 1


Here's my first attempt at a Hump Day Hook...This selection comes from my January 1 release, Message from Viola Mari, published by Extasy Books. Meteorite scientist, Marissa Jones, is squirming her way through a first date with her attractive-as-hell writing professor, Justin Lincoln.

Once the waitress placed our plates on the table, I reached for my fork, thrust it into the Mahi Mahi on my plate and sliced off a piece with my knife.

Justin’s brows tipped inward. “I bet you don’t get asked out on many second dates.”

“Excuse me?” I poised my fork ominously in his direction.

“You heard me.” His gaze dropped down to the V on my low-cut dress and he licked his lips.

A rush of desire surged between my legs. Damn men. The black widow female spider has got it right. Better to fuck them and then kill them off before they do permanent damage. “Can’t you look me in the eye when we speak? Anyway, where did you get your information about my relationships?”
“If you had dates galore, your mom wouldn’t have you lobbing balls over the fence and into the sand pit at the Beach and Tennis Club, would she?”

  2. Ooh I like it, she sounds feisty and just a little bit too defensive! Great hook, thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi Ciaran,
    Just acts a little like the know-it-all psychologist and this irritates her...Top that off with the fact that she spends many more hours doing scientific research than dating and you get some interesting chemistry :)

  4. Hi Catherine,
    Yes, Marissa is always feisty and also overwhelmed by the attraction she's feeling for someone she overall finds irritating...

    1. They're both under the influence of super-hot attraction and not dealing with it too well - LOL. Thanks for your comment and the warm welcome, Jade :-)
