My latest Hump Day Hook comes from my erotic sci fi, MESSAGE FROM VIOLA MARI. Best friend Jennifer is trying to persuade heroine, Marissa Jones, to take a science fiction novel writing class.

“If we hurry and sign up, we can still get in,” said Jennifer.
“Get into what?” Using my towel, I wiped water from my forehead.
“The science-fiction novel writing class. It meets every Saturday morning, starting next week.” From the bubbly tenor of her voice, you’d have thought we were the latest winners of the California lottery.
Oh, Lord, and I thought her plan to crash into working professionals on purpose, while pretending it wasn’t on purpose, was her weirdest idea yet. “Like I’d want to.”
“No I’m serious. It would be fun to go together, don’t you think? We could write a novel, meet some men…”
“Oh, no you don’t.” I saw my familiar Saturday morning routine of lounging in bed until ten washing away like a chalk drawing in the rain. I can knock a guy unconscious with a tennis ball on Friday night, listen to strangers burst out laughing at my writing incompetence Saturday morning, and attend Sunday mass for the sole purpose of praying—I don’t mind the sand trap, but please, oh please just let me finish all eighteen holes in the afternoon without knocking another guy in the nuts.
Here's the short blurb for this book:
The man who makes Marissa crazy is the only one she wants. But it's a bad time to let lust call the shots when a comet cloud is careening toward Earth and Marissa's the only one who can save everyone.
