HUMP DAY HOOK~9

Welcome to another Hump Day Hook!  Happy Wednesday, everyone. I hope Santa was good to you all.  Today's hook is from my wip, Dating Impossible, which I hope to have finished and subbed to Evernight Publishing by week's end so this will be the last excerpt from this story for a while!

Maybe it was a good thing Cruz was a no show.  Telling him the truth would ruin the fragile bond between them.  JJ didn’t know what she’d do without Cruz’s support.  She’d put her big girl panties on and could admit that she needed him now more than ever.
Ding Dong…
The glass half way to her lips stilled.  Oh fuck! Couldn’t be!  Heart thundering in her chest, she slammed the wine down in one long swallow.  The burgundy scorched her throat and warmed her belly.  Liquid courage was all she had, coward that she was.  Time to face the guillotine…  Would she lose him forever?

I hope you enjoyed...don't forget to check out the other participants of HDH here:
