Happy Saturday! Hot and sunny here, so my kids invented a new game: put the sprinkler under the trampoline. We spent the morning shopping for new bathing suits, and now they’re out there enjoying their water fun.
There are five more weeks in my book tour, and you can check out any of the links below on their respective dates to enter the giveaway. In this snippet, Renee has gone to do other things, and Adam is left with a handful of…interesting condoms he thinks he has no use for. (Those are all real, by the way, including the ones with former US Presidents and ruler markings.) He’s decided to pay the health center a return visit.
By the time Adam reached the health center, he’d made up his mind not to be swayed by Mr. Dark and Handsome. Adam was an effective communicator—that was his job. Not since middle school had he been at such a loss for how to speak to another human being. The only reason he’d ever been rendered silent, his mouth opening and closing like a fish, had been his eighth grade English teacher. Ms. Figueroa had been the single most gorgeous woman he’d ever seen, and the combination of puberty hormonal overload and awkward, geeky middle schooler had left him incapable of anything but sitting in class staring dreamily at her. No matter how attractive the guy in the health center was, he was not allowed to have the same effect on a grown-ass man with years’ worth of experience in the fine arts of dating and sex.
