Sneak Peek-What I Did for Lust

I’m excited to announce I’ll be part of the Prompted anthology, coming in 2016. Authors picked from prompts and wrote a 500-1500 word story, based on a a short prompt. I picked “oops! I sexted my boss.”.

What I Did for Lust is set in a failing piano bar. Gabby is trying to come to terms with impending bankruptcy when this happens…

Gabby’s phone buzzed with an incoming text.  She winced when she saw it was from Dev, the grad student with the golden hands who tickled the ivories four nights a week. They were supposed to be closing together, but she was hiding in her office, praying for a winning lottery ticket.

You look edible in blue.

Gabby bobbled her phone, all thoughts of impending financial ruin gone.

Months of smoldering tension had resulted in a single, torrid kiss several weeks ago in the storeroom. The sequence of events was still hazy. All she could remember was walking in on him, shirtless, muscles rippling beneath his dark brown skin as he lifted a case of vodka onto a shelf, and almost drooling. The next thing she remembered was her back pressed against the wall, her legs wrapped around his waist, their tongues mating frantically.

He had never mentioned their make-out session afterward. Gabriella had been trying to convince herself it’d been an incredibly vivid daydream. What the hell was this?

Dev had looked sinfully handsome in the white oxford shirt he’d paired with jeans tonight. Before the second set, he’d unbuttoned the cuffs and rolled the sleeves halfway up his forearms. She was pretty sure she’d whimpered, but the opening notes of Master of the House had covered the sound.

I think you look edible all the time.

***What I Did for Lust is a play on the song “What I Did for Love” from A Chorus Line
