Happy Wednesday! I think the dust has settled from the school musical and vacation. Life is back to normal, whatever that means.
I made a decision this week to stop accepting requests for book reviews. I’ll still review stuff I’m reading, but it’s felt a lot lately like one more thing I can’t quite manage or keep up with. If you’re interested in reading about why, I posted yesterday.
Meanwhile, I’m still working on Mack’s story. Amelia hasn’t shared with me whatever dirt she has on Sage, but I guess she’ll talk when I’m writing in her POV. I’m taking a different approach with this novel. Instead of alternating POV, it’s divided into sections, each in a different POV (Mack’s, Amelia’s, and Jomari’s—I haven’t introduced him yet).
Sticking with the scene I’ve been posting from, last time, I ended with this:
Sage laughed. He eyed her up and down, making Mack’s blood boil. “Oh, sweetie. What are you going to do if I don’t?”
This week, Amelia makes herself perfectly clear to Sage.

“Not a damn thing. But Jamie’s got friends now, see, and they’re not as nice as I am. You ever see his buddy Nate?” She raised her hand as high as she could reach. “He’s ’bout six-five and built like a football player.”
Mack wisely didn’t laugh. Nate was hardly the type to take anyone out. He was intimidating on first sight, though. Amelia had exaggerated by a couple inches, but Nate was a giant compared to Jamie.
“You do anything, and I’ll call the cops myself.” Sage tried to stare Amelia down.
“Not saying he’ll put a hand on you,” she replied. Still calm, still focused. “I’m saying we know what you’re capable of. You’ll hurt Jamie and then claim you never touched him. And I’m saying you’re gonna regret that. You’re not the only one who knows things that may or may not be used against you. Are we clear?”
