Six Sentence Sunday

Happy Sunday, peeps!

I'm having a blast participating in Six Sentence Sunday, and am going to share some more from my latest release, Obsessed. Last weekend I left you with a snippet from Nick's pov. He'd just doled out a major beat down to the perv who attacked his lady love, Halley.

Halley's suffering from a serious case of anxiety due to her attack and Nick has surprised himself by offering to help her run errands. Bad Boy doesn't want to get attached, and doesn't realize he already has.

Here you go:

Nick white-knuckled the steering wheel and released his foot off the brake, feeling like a cross between a man on fire and a complete tool. Someone was scaring the piss out of Halley, and there wasn’t a damn thing he could do about it. Helpless, pissed off, and angry were becoming his favorite emotions. Whatever happened to numb? He liked numb. This new cocktail of passion, rage, and sympathy left him wound up and jonesy. Not a good feeling.

Make sure to check out the other Six Sentence Sunday offerings here.

And in case you missed it, I'm phasing out my Cali Cheer Mom blog in July. To mark the change I'm hosting a month long author extravaganza in July. Yeah, baby! Thirty days of author interviews, guest posts and giveaways. Woohoo! If you're not following me here, make sure you click the Google Friend Connect button to the right. You won't want to miss the party, and'll make me feel all warm and squishy :) Mwah!
