Six Sentence Sunday: Sudden Breakaway – Will Jared get a break? #sixsunday

Thank you to each and every one of you for reading
and commenting on my excerpts each week. :)

This week, I bring you another six from Sudden Breakaway,
a 1Night Stand story coming soon to Decadent Publishing.

While Jared has the hots for Ms. Brown, there are two things that keep him from joining the Space Service, or pursuing a relationship with the woman.

Jared yanked Dylan off the top of the fridge, holding him under his arm as the kid tried to wiggle free. “Superman could fly. You can’t. If you jump off the fridge, you’re going to get hurt.”

Once the boy stopped squirming, he set him down and rushed over to his niece who had decided to color his white cell phone, pink. “Madison, I know you love everything pink, but my phone does not need a makeover.”

  4. Oh man! Poor guy! I can definitely see he DOES have too much on his plate for Ms. Brown, much less the Space Service! Great way of showing without telling!

    Oh, Jessica! This week’s Six is terrific. You convey that he is both frantic, patient, and yet frustrated, too!

    Cute six, Jessica :)

  22. Sarah W says:

    He’s an uncle! That gives him a completely different dimension . . . and makes him even hotter . . .

    I am so entertained by this snippet. You capture little kids SO well. And the hero is now completely loveable in my opinion. Great six. Can’t wait to read the whole of it when it’s released. :))

  24. Oh no! He better get control of them quick or he’s in touble. Great six. :)

  25. Haahaa! Men trying to deal with small people is always funny. :) I love a good hearted hero.

  26. Ryan Derham says:

    So I’m guessing his niece and nephew (his two reasons for not joining the space service?) are even more dangerous than space or Ms. Brown. ;) Fun six, Jessica!

  27. Jenna Jaxon says:

    Two good reasons not to have time to get involved! But he’s great with the kids–bet he’d like some of his own. LOL Sounds like another great story with a wonderful hero. Congrats, Jessica!

    Very cute scene. The coloring the phone pink reminded me of the time I drew my stick figure so-called “Hi Guys” in my baby book when my mom was on the phone.

    Oh, man, I can so relate! I loved the last line about the makeover. No wonder he’s so busy. Great six, Jessica. :)

  31. Cherie Marks says:

  33. Ha ha ok that does sound great Jess! … Hmm the part where he picks up his son from the fridge reminds me of me and your peckerhe- I mean husband *smile* I used to think I could fly too and remember a couple times where he and Ken had to catch me mid flight lol … A great 6 and much like your other 1NS’s I’m sure I will love it! Your stuff just keeps getting better and better!
