Welcome to Weekend Warriors – a 8 sentence snippet from Touched, my latest book.
Following a bicycle ride in the centre of London, Adam and Tania are a somewhat sweaty. She suggests a shower. He wants to make it for two.
Tania opened her eyes wider as she understood the implication. “It will be a bit of a squeeze, the two of us.”
“My kind of shower,” he said, catching her hand. “Shall we, amber?”
There was no elegance to their fumbled undressing, tossing the clothes in a heap on the bathroom floor, the garments forming a pile of misshapen sweaty cotton. Tania ran the shower until it steamed the room up into a fog of condensed water.
“Not too hot.” He reached for the dial. “You’re going to be plenty warm next to me.”
Touched in ways she never thought possible, Tania meets a man who will take her completely.
Tania Havers has no time for sex, never mind romance or boyfriends. Life as an investment analyst in the City of London gives her plenty of stress and competition from equally ambitious work colleagues.
On the advice of a friend, Tania tries out something different—tantric massages. Meeting Adam, an erotic masseur with hands that send her into sensual oblivion, she begins a covert affair, one that takes them out of the massage parlor, into a hotel room, then to her apartment and finally his basement, where Adam shows Tania his secret passion—one he wishes to explore with her.
While their erotic pastimes bring relief, Tania’s career intrudes on their relationship. Driven by ambition, she will deal with obstacles as she sees fit. Adam is about to find out whether Tania has room in her life—and in her heart—for him or whether she will sacrifice their love to save her career.

Like the pacing of the snippet. Well written!
“There was no elegance to their fumbled undressing, tossing the clothes in a heap on the bathroom floor, the garments forming a pile of misshapen sweaty cotton.” Nice! Your writing is so fluid, natural, and easy to read. Nicely done!
Hello Teresa, thank you. Hope you will stop by again.
Great descriptions – I could really visualize the scene (and so realistic). I didn’t get the word “amber”. Is she going by a pseudonym or something? I probably missed a key point in earlier excerpts 🙂 But really enjoyed the excerpt!
Thank you. Amber is an endearment, rather like honey or sweetheart. I debated about capitalizing it but it isn’t a nickname, rather a reference to her hair colour.
Very nice. The story blurb is intriguing- what’s he got in his basement??
Ah – now that would be revealing. There is a clue if you go to the publisher’s website there is an extra line of detail given with the blurb which I haven’t revealed. Since I write kinky stories, you might assume it has something to do with that!
Thanks for stopping by.
Very nice Jaye! Loved the fliw and descriptions too.
