Sneak Peek Sunday April 14





Welcome back to Sneak Peek Sunday! This is a great and fun way to read snippets of authors' works! Some of them are going to be available right now, and some are absolute teases! LOL.  There's always something for everyone, so be sure to check out the link and maybe you'll find your next read!

So today, for my sneak peek...have you ever done something completely impulsive..maybe you're not fully coherent yet and make a rash decision even though you know you shouldn't do it?

Yeah, that's Avery's dilemma today. She and Lucas have just given into their attraction to the other, and the next morning, she's not quite thinking...and she may learn a few things about Lucas that could change things....





        Avery woke to the sound of a phone ringing.  She cracked an eyelid open.  Slivers of sunlight broke through the blinds from the window.  What time was it now?  Yawning, she reached for the phone.  Lucas lay sprawled across the bed, still asleep. 

When she attempted to answer her phone and heard it still ring, reality struck.  It wasn’t her phone going off.  It must be Lucas’s.  It laid in plain sight on top of Lucas’s pants on the floor by the bed.  Avery squinted to see the caller ID, but the number was blocked.  The ringing and blocked number only made her more  curious and  before  she  could  think  things through, Avery reached for his phone and hit the answer button.  Then she freaked, not sure what to do.  She couldn’t even muster up the nerve to say hello, but the person on the other end of the phone started talking frantically.  It was a woman.  Not a young one.  She sounded older. 

“Lucas, are you there?  Hello?  Look, I know you’re mad at me, but I wanted to explain things.  I know I’ve put you in a horrible position.  Come on, Lucas-” 

Then the phone was snatched from her hands.  Avery gasped, startled.  She turned to face Lucas, who put the phone up to his ear and snapped, “I’ll call you back.”  After he ended the call and tossed the phone to the bed, he shot Avery an angry look.  His eyes narrowed, his lips set into a thin line.  Shit.  He was mad. 

“I-.  I don’t know what came over me.  At first, I thought it was my phone.  Then I just, I wasn’t thinking.  I’m sorry, Lucas.” 

The woman’s voice on the other end of that call echoed in Avery’s mind.  Who was she?  Why was Lucas mad at her?  Oh, she should have never done that.  Now it only confused Avery even more. 


And there you have it!  Thanks for stopping by to read my Sneak Peek Sunday snippet!
