Six Sentence Sunday, Jan. 20th

Happy Sunday! It’s the penultimate (ooh, big word) Six Sentence Sunday, so let’s do it up right. This is another excerpt from my new contemporary from Entangled, Melting the Millionaire’s Heart. Things are heating up and Kayla has just discovered that Ryan, who has just returned from a business trip, carries condoms in his luggage when he travels. He tells her that he likes to be prepared but isn’t a player, and hasn’t used any on his most recent trips. He asks if that makes her feel better:

It did make her feel better, for some reason she didn’t care to examine, and her relief let her be generous. “We’re living in this moment, remember?” There, that sounded sophisticated, the kind of thing that a woman who did this kind of thing all the time might say. Yawn. Just another night of passion with a gorgeous guy. BFD.

Not a player, hmm? Do we believe him?

  1. As a reader, I don’t know that I’d believe he’s not a player. It sounds like we’re not talking about a single condom tucked into his wallet, but condoms (like a row). Her easy belief of what he says makes me wonder about her, but I get her desire to want to believe. Good 6

  2. Don’t know if I believe him. But maybe she can change his ways? Great job!

    If he’s not a player, he seems to have a high opinion of his skills to think they’d be in great enough demand (should the need arise) that he would need the plural rather than the singular.

    I don’t know as a sophisticated woman who does this all the time would even bat an eye at the protection. But I bet he finds her efforts beguiling and adorable. “Yawn. Just another night of passion with a gorgeous guy. BFD.” That’s funny. 🙂
