Jerky Boys #indielicious

Do I even need to tell you what today is? Didn't think so. Happy day-that-shall-not-be-mentioned-day.

I'm bringing you another teaser from Shattered Secrets. I mean, really, would you expect anything else? I entered this bad boy into a contest the other day, and I've been biting my nails ever since. You can yell at Jessa Russo, Mom and Dad. It's all her fault.

Anyhoo. Last week, Derick visited Abby in the hospital, and before he left, he gave her a note that she hasn't quite had a chance to read yet. Now it's her turn to talk to Mark. He's already made a snide comment about the roses Derick left for her . . . .

Enjoy!

~"What are you sorry for?"

"Abby, you're in the hospital, and I'm hounding you about Derick. I'm acting as selfish as he is—"

"Selfish? How is Derick acting selfish? I was kidnapped, and you're in here talking about who I'm dating—or not dating. The only person acting selfish is you."

"Abby?" Mom stood in the doorway, scary-parent gaze settled on Mark. "Do you need a moment?"

"No, Mom. Mark was just leaving." I glared at him, trying to imitate the hardness my mother offered, that cold calculating sternness all adults seemed to have mastered.

He stood and leaned over the bed, and for a moment, I thought he was going to kiss me like Derick had. "Those roses, whatever piece of paper you're clutching in your hand—these are his attempts to get back on your good side, Abby. Open your eyes. There's a whole world around you that you refuse to see."

"Get. Out."~

I'd say Mark better watch out. Abby is a fighter.

  1. Ooh, Mark, better take a step back. Still trying to figure out who these people are, lol. Have no idea who is good here, if anyone :)

    1. You're not supposed to know who is good and bad. :-) Shattered Secrets is a romance/thriller/suspense/fantasy. It takes you on a long roller coaster ride.

    1. Abby is a fighter. I love that about her. She knows what she wants, and she's not taking shit from anyone.

  3. Both of these guys seem to want more than she's ready to give. They need to stop pressuring her and be a little more sympathetic!

    1. I agree. Derick's trying, and he's carrying a heavy burden. Not being around her could make things worse, and being around her could make things worse. He's confused. Mark, well, Mark is just a little greedy when it comes to Abby.

    1. I like Mom in this scene. The scary-parent gaze is the best. :-)

  9. Oh my. Men can be rather dense about these things at times. Mark is not helping his situations. I can't wait to read the whole thing. I'm curious about this contest you mentioned. Tell us more!

    You want to factor in your skin tone, the shape of your face, the length of your hair and last but not least, your personality.

    Hence, many people usually choose this gemstone for wedding and engagement rings.
    The desktops are smaller, but they are more practical, as they are kept
    on your desk, and easier to reach.

    Apart from the design of engagement rings, another
    important consideration when going ring shopping is your particular choice of jewelry
    store. Platinum is a very strong, durable metal that
    is very resistant to wear and tarnish. Don't worry about how much you should spend for your ring.
