Teaser Tuesday

14 May

This week we have a section from our third Clifftop book, Double Dom Fantasies, which is a finalist in the Colorado Romance Writers Award of Excellence contest!

“Dude, I texted Tammy.”

Crash wrenched his attention away from the movie he was watching. “You did what?”

He was suddenly glad that Buffy had gone upstairs for her bath as soon as they’d gotten home, thanking them for the very nice evening. AJ had gone to his room, claiming he had things to do. It was obvious now what that had been. Luckily, nobody else seemed to be around. The two other couples must have gone out for dinner as well. Crash had gotten his stash of junk food and settled down with the television.

This was more important than the movie, though. Crash turned it off and offered AJ a Nutter Butter, frowning at him as he sat down.

“I said I texted Tammy.”

“What did you tell her?”

AJ absently took the snack and put it next to him on the couch. “I said that I had come here to learn about BDSM and that I’d even gotten to tie up a girl. Hopefully that’ll let her see that I’m serious about making our relationship work.”

“It wasn’t just ‘a girl.’ It was Buffy.”

“I know. I didn’t mean anything disparaging. I think you should go for it with her, by the way. There could really be something there.”

Yeah, and when Tammy dumps you, you’re going to see that for yourself, and I’ll be out in the cold again. No, thanks. Crash unwrapped another package of Nutter Butters and tossed one into his mouth. “We’ll see,” he said finally, chewing.

“What do you mean, ‘We’ll see’? You’ve only got this week, then she’ll go off to God knows where. You’ve got to work quickly. We could both be in good relationships by the end of this week if everything goes well.”

“Maybe.” Crash stared at the dark television, wishing he hadn’t turned it off. It would have been good camouflage for his conflicted impulses.

“What is with you? She’s perfect!”

Crash shrugged. “I know. She’s too good for me. She deserves someone like you. So go after her yourself.”

“I don’t want to go after her! I’ve got Tammy.”

Crash sighed. “I hope it works out for you, Bro. But Buffy would be better.”

“It will.” AJ’s face got serious. “I have a good feeling about this. And trust me, you’re going to be sorry if you don’t give it a shot with Buffy. I don’t know why, but I think she’s interested.” He gave Crash a mock punch, his face lightening.

AJ’s cell phone buzzed, and he jumped as if he’d been shot. Crash watched glumly as AJ lunged up and almost ran from the room, fumbling with the phone, then reached over and picked up the forgotten snack. “Amateur.”

He had just gotten the movie turned back on when there was the slam of a door and AJ’s unmistakable tread on the stairs. It sounded like he was running up them.

If it had been good news, surely he would have come back in to gloat. Crash turned the television off again and followed his friend up to his room.

Have a great Tuesday!
