Tuesday Teasers ~ Fireworks

I'm participating in this week's of Tuesday Teasers sponsored by Sherri Hayes. The idea is to share a 100-word teaser from a current release or work in progress. This week, would like to share an excerpt with you from my adult romance novella, Fireworks. Check out who else is sharing on Sherri's blog.


Sophie McKibbin finds herself back in Sam Crawford’s life after ten years. Unfortunately, Sam is dating Lola, Sophie’s high school nemesis. Lola dumps Sam the day before he was supposed to introduce his mystery girlfriend to his family over the Fourth of July holiday. With the looming fear of disappointing his mother once again and his long held feelings for Sophie, he asks her to take Lola’s place. With family feuds, an old flame, and feelings that have been locked away for a decade, there is bound to be some fireworks.

100 words-ish

“If she wouldn’t have discouraged me when we first met, you could have bypassed that asshole Josh, and we could be married with two kids and a dog by now.”

Sophie took in a sharp breath. His words rang true and a pang hit her heart when she realized he was probably right.

“Maybe two dogs and one child.” A nervous laugh left her mouth as her fingers tugged at the hem of the tank top in her hands. “I love dogs, but the Judge never let me have one.”

“Then, we’ll get a dozen if you’d like,” Sam responded playfully and sat next to her on the bed.
