Six Sentence Sunday 9/16/12

16 Sep

Welcome to Six Sentence Sunday!  Thank you for taking the time to visit.  This week I’d like to share my 9th snippet from my contemporary romance Two-Timing the Boss which is available in print and ebook

I love reading comments, so please let me know what you think of my six.

QUICK SET UP: I jumped ahead several paragraphs. Last week Farah had bumped into Keller coming out of a wig shop. She’s not in disguise and trying to keep talking to a minimum because she’s afraid he’ll figure out who she is. Just as she’s wishing the sidewalk would swallow her so she could make an exit, a man from her past appears. Her ex-boyfriend Paul…the man she believes she’s still in love with…here she ends up comparing the two and finds her old flame…well, read on to see 🙂

Although only an inch or so different in height, Keller appeared much larger. His broad shoulders tapered down to lean hips and his thigh muscles pressed against his denim jeans with graceful force. Funny, she’d never considered him an athlete, but seeing him in street clothes it became obvious. Whatever sport he played, he’d excel at.

Whereas Paul had muscles; they were developed by a trainer, three days a week. As for sporting events, he made a better spectator.

I hope you enjoyed these six.  For more great snippets please go to SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY.  Or join in the fun next week with six of your own.

Happy Reading!

BLURB for Two-Timing the Boss:

Farah Smith is on a mission: secure the funds for her twin sister’s surgery.  She’ll do whatever it takes to succeed.  Even if that means putting her values aside to work for a man she finds morally bankrupt.  But when the real Farah meets her new boss, she wonders if she’ll be able to resist his sexy advances long enough to help her sister.

From the blonde wig, to the stilettos strapped around her ankles, Farah’s a clone of Keller Donovan’s harem of past assistants.  She can’t believe she’s let herself be talked into the disguise, let alone working for the man planning to demolish the hospital her sister so desperately needs, but the salary he offers is the only way she’ll be able to afford her sister’s surgery.  The moment Farah meets Keller she realizes her most daunting task isn’t typing, spreadsheets or organizing travel arrangements, but fighting the growing attraction toward a man whose ruthlessness is legendary in the boardroom as well as the bedroom.

Determined not to end up in a disastrous marriage like his divorced parents, Keller believes all relationships should have a shelf life of sixth months or less.  But when he meets Farah, all bets are off.  He not only wants her to continue as his personal assistant, but his own private bed warmer.  Unfortunately, his offer of an affair doesn’t sit well with her fairytale dreams or the strangled hold gripping his heart.

    • ChristineWarner

      September 16, 2012 at 10:28 am

    Great comparison by the heroine, Christine! And I love the way you described the fit of his jeans. It’s unusual and therefore memorable! Good job. 🙂

    September 16, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    Enjoyed this moment, always a strange feeling when you start comparing two guys and realize “things” – VERY well done and fun. Terrific six!

  22. Dana Mason

    September 16, 2012 at 3:07 pm

    Nice! Very well done. Between the set up and the six sentences, I could picture this as if I were standing there too. And after reading the descriptions, I kinda wish I was. 🙂 Good six.

    • ChristineWarner

      September 16, 2012 at 3:46 pm

      Awww…thanks Dana….I truly appreciate your comment! Thanks for coming by.

  25. Mae Clair

    September 16, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    OOh, I like it! Awesome descriptions and comparisons. I liked her thought that Paul would make a better ‘spectator” LOL!

    • ChristineWarner

      September 16, 2012 at 4:38 pm

      lmbo….I liked it too Mae…thanks for coming by 🙂

    I love the yummy comparison. Well done!

  27. Jess Schira

    September 16, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    I’ve always been fascinated by how some people seem so much taller/broader than they actually are, and vice versa. You did a great job creating the illusion in this snippet. Good work!

  28. Sara Walter Ellwood

    September 16, 2012 at 7:32 pm

    Nice comparison… Great six…

  29. Karen Michelle Nutt

    September 16, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    Working muscles are sexier than muscles from working out at a gym. 🙂
    Love the comparison. Great six!

    • ChristineWarner

      September 17, 2012 at 6:52 am

      Thanks Michelle….so good to hear you liked my six:)

  30. Heather Boyd

    September 16, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    Great description! The old flame just doesn’t compare does he?

    • ChristineWarner

      September 17, 2012 at 6:52 am

      They never do! lol Glad you dropped in Heather 🙂

  31. Cindy Dwyer

    September 17, 2012 at 7:03 pm

    Great comparison between the two – well done in that you didn’t make the ex seem like a loser. I hate when authors make that mistake, because how are we supposed to be impressed with the heroine if she dated such a dork / sleaze / con artist in the past?

    • ChristineWarner

      September 17, 2012 at 9:16 pm

      Agreed…thanks for the wonderful compliment Cindy 🙂

  32. maccrowne

    September 17, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    Oh yeah. Paul’s a goner! Very nicely done, Christine.
