“Nothing’s too good for you”: Saturday Spankings and Snippet Sunday

Apologies for the delay! (For Saturday Spankings, at least. For Snippet Sunday, I am early.) After a few sleepless nights, I crashed yesterday. I should learn to schedule these posts ahead of time.

The following sentences are a sneak peek (unedited) from Ana Adored, a Masters of the Castle book I am co-authoring with Maren Smith. Thank you to Thursday Threads judge Layla Wolfe, who gave this snippet an honorable mention. Her comment? “Anastasia’s story of speed and bad impulse control also scared me into wondering what was going to happen.”

“Mapquest says it’s seven hours to Chicago. Want to bet we can do it in four?” They hurtled through a four-way stop sign, and Ana fought nausea. She’d never gotten carsick before, but she couldn’t handle much more of this thriller theme park ride. “We’ll wander around the Loop, and I made dinner reservations for the fireworks at Navy Pier.”

Shocked, Ana gave a sharp laugh. Workaholic Peyton had scheduled the vacation Ana always wanted? “Shut up, that’s not true.”

Peyton slammed the gas pedal as soon as they merged onto the highway. “Nothing’s too good for you,” she proclaimed.

    What??? Embarking on a super high speed and very dangerous car trip on highways shared by people with no business being behind the wheel of anything besides a tricycle (shall we simply call this a vehicular suicide/homicide mission?), Peyton tells Ana nothing is too good for her??? ROTFLMAO!!! But, seriously, how sweet she is feeding her need for speed!!! Boo-yah!

    This brought tears to me eyes, me darlin’ Ana! Love it! 😉

    I love the ‘nothing is too good for you’ line! Ooh I do have a need for speed…what kind of car are they driving? Take care of yourself and make sure you get plenty of rest.

    Hugs and Blessings…

    Yah! so excited for you co-authoring with Maren again. And another Masters of the Castle book… double yah! {I am jumping up and down}. Loved the excerpt especially the mapquest line… “Want to bet we can do it in four?” Take care of yourself and get some sleep.
