HUMP DAY HOOK~18

Morning to all!! Happy Hump Day! Hope you all are well and getting ready for Spring. Today's hook comes from my current release, Dating Impossible available now at www.evernightpublishing.com . It's not really a hook per se, but I do love this passage! All comments are welcome and appreciated.  For all the other authors participating in this week's HDH, you can go here for a complete list: http://humpdayhook.blogspot.com/ 



“This is easy,” Ambra began and spun toward a tall, well- built man holding a pitcher of beer in one hand and a ping pong ball in the other. “It’s beer pong. All you do is stand where he’s standing and aim for the cups with the beer in them. We get a ball in the cup, the other team has to drink.”

With half an ear, JJ listened to Ambra’s instructions. Cruz’s warm breath fanned the back of JJ’s neck. Her concentration turned skittish. Stubbornness cemented her feet to the floor. Why was he standing so damn close?

Don’t move. Don’t move. Don’t move.

“Okay,” JJ said. “Who are we going to play against?”

“I’ll take you two on,” Cruz said. He shifted his body, stood in front of her, stripped off his tuxedo jacket and rolled up the sleeves of his dress shirt. The muscles of his tan forearms flexed with the movement.

JJ dragged her gaze away from his tanned skin and gulped. He’s just a man, she told herself reasonably. Flesh and blood. 

Extensor muscles line the back of the forearm which are used to extend the wrist while the flexors are used to flex the wrist. Under the muscles are the humerus and radius, the two bones of the lower arm.

The anatomical facts streamed through JJ’s mind, but did nothing to diminish the sexiness of those particular arms, or the memories flooding her of how they felt wrapped around her body only moments before. Combined with the heady scent of pure male, the intoxicating blend shot long suppressed sexual yearning to the surface. Flames of heated desire licked along her skin.


That's it! Have a Super Hump Day!!
