Excerpt <<

As a part of this tour, I get the honour of sharing this cute - and quite amusing - little excerpt with you.  Enjoy, my lovelies!

Shane instantly stood up, ripping his helmet off his head. “You’re such a cheater!” he screamed.

“How so?” I questioned innocently.

“You hit me! It’s against the rules!”

“Don’t be such a baby,” I laughed, “and I didn’t hit you, it’s called drafting. Haven’t you ever watched NASCAR?”

Tyler and Rob joined us as we argued in the middle of the finish line. Rob was eager to go try another track out. He began talking faster than I could comprehend. I hated to admit it, but I was dying to get back behind the wheel. I turned away from the guys and spied Ethan walking towards us. I told myself to not gloat too much.

“Well done,” he said, joining our circle.

“Thanks,” I smiled. “Beginners luck I’m sure.”

I added that more for his ego’s benefit than anything else because it wasn’t beginners luck; I was really just that good.

He held out a small ripped piece of paper, “A deal’s a deal. Give me a call this week.”

“I will.” I promised, even though I knew I wouldn’t.

He rubbed his hands together nervously. I didn’t handle awkward situations well, and needless to say the situation was uncomfortable. Ethan was no Casanova and I wanted nothing more than for him to leave. Instead he worked up the nerve to speak again.

“If you’re not busy next weekend, my Frat is having a toga party. You should come.”
I heard the guys choke back their laughter.

Awesome, I was never going to live this one down. I had shamelessly hit on a college kid all day, for just $20. As an almost thirty-year old woman, I was ashamed.

“Oh… Ummm… Yeah,” I stuttered, “I live in New York. But thanks for the offer.”

He shoved his hands awkwardly into his pockets. “Oh. Right. Well… anyway it was nice meeting you” he stuck his hand out to shake. “I’m sorry but, I don’t think you told me your name.”

I placed my hand in his, “Emma.”

“Nice to meet you Emma. I hope to hear from you soon.” And with that he finally walked away.

“Now that,” Rob began as he pushed a waded up bill into my hand, “was the best $20 I ever spent.”

Tyler and Shane joined in, laughing wholeheartedly.

“Screw you guys. At least I’ve still got it.”

Walking to the next track, Tyler put his arm around my neck and ruffled my hair. “Whatever you say… Mrs. Robinson!”
