Hump Day H00k #HDH

Hi all! Another week's come and gone, and we're back to Hump Day Hook where authors share snippets from their stories. :)
Today I'm giving you another peek into a work in progress tentatively titled Wild West Island Getaway. It's planned to be the third full length story in the Double D Ranch Tales series. We're planning (hoping to get out) a novella before this story, too. Leading up to this paragraph, the gang is vacationing on the family estate in Grand Cayman. Cassie and Dak have been fighting for months now, and she's glad her friend's finally arrived on the island so she can have some girl talk. One afternoon, Dak's storms into their bungalow having heard rumors that she and Bristol are fooling around with the cabanna boy, Damian. Cassie and Dak pick up their argument again... It's more than a paragraph because the lines of dialogue are short and quick to read. Enjoy!

* He folded his arms in front of him. “How am I making it sound?”
* Why does he have to bait me? Well, he’s asking for it. “That I dropped my shorts, we jumped into bed and fucked.”
* His jaw dropped and eyes widened. “Do you always have to be so crass?”
* “Do you always have to behave like a big child or caveman?”
* He growled low in his throat. “You know I hate being called that.”
* “You know I hate being called woman when there’s a my or your or little before it.” If she could have breathed fire and incinerated him, she would have. Dakota being reduced to a pile of ashes would solve so many problems.

Well written argument with great description

Love the fire in this exchange. Great hook!

I really like the tension between them. He will have his hands full with her, and that's a good thing. It makes me want to know more of them as a couple and what happens next.

Paloma Beck said...

A heated exchange... a little foreplay perhaps??

Chantal said...

Ha that was fiery!

Whoa, she's giving him what for. But at least he's bothered enough to be jealous, even if he is a bit wrong headed. Nice snippet.

Sarah said...

I LOVE couples that have enough spark and fire to fight so well. Great hook!

Naomi said...

Good exchange with passions underlying. Great hook

Gem Sivad said...

Yes, there have been moments when incinerating someone seems like a good idea...loved the hook.

Catherine Green said...
