Thanks for visiting me on this snippet-sharing weekend! Welcome to the newcomers and welcome back to all the cool kids who make these blog events fun for everyone.
Today’s snippet is from my Christmas story, Toy Run. It doesn’t directly follow last week’s but you haven’t missed much. Ian made his way into a diner, onto the only empty stool at the counter, and exchanged introductions with the guy beside him.
I grabbed a menu from the holder in front of me but my stomach had gone from rumbling to shivering. In the space of one handshake, eating became less important than getting out from under his gaze. It usually took a lot more than a pair of dark eyes for me to give up my full name, but those weren’t just any eyes. So brown they were almost black, and full of the promise of rough sex.
Or an ass kicking.
It was hard to tell. Knowing things like that was not a specialty of mine.
Thanks for reading!

Haha, I like the sound of Ian already. I now want to know how this translates into a Christmas story so I will be adding Toy Run to my wish list.
Thanks for stopping by & commenting, DJ! 🙂
See, if you came over to the dark side, those dark eyes could promise an a** spanking. 😀 Nice. If you don’t mind some feedback (sorry if you do), you might want to add a comma after “handshake.” Otherwise it sounds like it’s a handshaking eating. 🙂
*lol* Do you have cookies too?
Don’t mind at all, thanks for pointing that out. I’ll make a note of it & try to make sure it’s fixed before it sees the light of day. 🙂
Thanks, Elaine! 🙂
Enough to nudge my curiosity: what’s it going to be: hot sex or ass kicking? Next week then …
I love eyes, too. I’m curious to know more.
Something tells me Ian will be brushing up on his rough sex/ass kicking identification skills really, really soon . . . 😀
Thanks for visiting, Sarah! 🙂
Well, I’m intrigued and now pondering exactly what kind of toys will be involved. (Is that naughty? Sorry!).
*lol* Naughty, sure, but naughty’s okay here. Thanks for your comment!
This is just… awesome. (I think I’m in lust with the guy on the next stool, too!)
Thanks! (Oh yeah, he’s lust-worthy all right.)
Awwweeessssooommm! Fabulous snippet–full of sexual tension, character development. Lovely stuff.
I like the sounds of that. I will definitely be back for more!
Nice job showing us exactly what he was thinking and feeling. So which will it be I wonder?
History Sleuth’s Milk Carton Murders
Oh my! This gave me the shivers. Ass-kicking indeed. With you as the author, he’d better watch out!
