Sunday Snippet: Not Again

April 20, 2014


Happy Easter to those who celebrate.

Lovely week in TV. Arrow had a rockin' episode. I love it when Oliver doesn't get things right and makes huge mistakes. S.H.I.E.L.D also had another awesome episode. I'm really looking forward to seeing how they end this season. Also? Orphan Black returned!! I love this show SO MUCH!!

And seriously? What an opening episode. I have sooooo many theories and I can't wait to see if I'm on track or totally off the rails. LOL The writing never fails to keep me coming back for more and the acting just blows my mind. If you're not watching this, you should be. J

Tonight's post is from Not Again, a hurts so good novella.

Here's the tagline:

Drue Braddock and Xeno Howlett have a rocky relationship, but when Drue goes off on one of her many soul searching quests, Xeno decides he's had enough. When Drue returns, she finally knows what she wants—Xeno—but she may not get her chance because he's got someone new in his life.

And a preview snippet…

Xeno propped his shoulder against the jamb, blocking Drue's entrance.
She lifted a brow. "What the hell, Xeno? I had a long trip back. Let me in."
Xeno's head jerked back and forth. "Don't think so, Drue. Not again." He crossed his arms over his chest. "Say what you need to say and leave."
She jabbed a finger into the soft spot under his collarbone. "I've got a lot to say and I'm not doing it from the hallway." She leaned in closer. "Half the place belongs to me, Xeno."
He snorted, then straightened. "Not anymore, Drue." He stepped back and directed her in with a wave of his arm. "But sure, barge right on in."
She crossed the threshold and stopped dead in her tracks when her gaze automatically went to the bedroom she shared with Xeno.
A low growl emanated from deep within her chest, the only indication she'd ever give of the pain ripping its way through her. She gave Xeno a sideways glance, turned on her heel and stomped over to the door, slamming it shut.
Wheeling around, she snarled. "You have exactly ten seconds to get Lydia's ass out of my bed."
Xeno shot back. "It's not your bed anymore, Drue. And it won't be again." He crossed the floor in three strides and opened the heavy oak. "Your stuff is in storage." He reached over and snagged a key from the console table by the door. "You can pick it up whenever you want." A tag dangled with the name of the location and a number. "I think we're done here. Don't come back again."
With little choice—for the moment—Drue accepted the key. She swallowed a stream of expletives and exited Xeno's apartment. When the door slammed shut behind her, she squared her shoulders and walked toward the bank of elevators.
Once she hit the call button, she sucked in a determined breath. "We are nowhere close to being done, Xeno. I will be back… again."

Poor Lydia might want to duck and run while she can. :D

That's it for this week.
