Sunday Snippet: That Explains Everything

Gotta take a moment and give it up to the entire cast of Sons of Anarchy. Charlie Hunnam and Jimmy Smits made me cry. Seriously. And if memory serves, there's no episode for Thanksgiving week, so I may have to watch the last one at least one more time.

Also, Arrow and The Flash are meeting up and crossing over. Cannot wait! Both shows are really bringing it and I couldn't be happier. Agents of SHIELD is also getting even better and Sleepy Hollow is holding on. I kind of miss the batshit freak of the week stuff and cross my fingers we'll see some more of that in the near future.

I'm kind of hoping to see some holiday themed episodes from some of my fave shows. If nothing pops up, at least I'll have Doctor Who and I can always watch holiday eps from shows gone by.

Enough TV, tonight's post is from, That Explains Everything, a novella filled with magic, a quest, and romance.

Here's the tagline:

Tasha Yale wants Brax Vermillion, but can't seem to break her connection to Staz Yarrow—until she's taken by Lanai Conns. Finally aware of the nefarious machinations, Tasha fights to get back to her clan and Brax… before it's too late.

And a preview snippet…

Staz had been gone two days. Brax figured Tasha would show up within the hour, just like clockwork. He grew a little weary of the back and forth, wishing Tash would make up her mind, once and for all. He could deal with uncertainty, especially since Tasha and Staz had a five year history.
Brax sighed. "But I've known you longer, Tash. Known you better." The empty room didn't respond.
He tossed a log on the fire and stoked it. Tasha liked to sit and reflect, the dancing flames a hypnotic balm. He kicked back, putting his feet up on the table. Maybe she wouldn't show up tonight. She could have made a choice. Finally.
Staz over Brax.
The idea settled in his gut like a lead ball. He hated not really having Tasha, but he'd despise not having her in his life at all. She'd been around for as long as he could remember, always keen to get in his way, or drag him into so called adventures that usually landed both on the hot stick. His parents and her grandparents used every trick they could to keep them within the clan boundaries, but Tasha inevitably found a way around every one.
His lips turned up. She still found ways to get past hurdles, loopholes were her favorite things in life.
A series of three quiet knocks sounded on the door and it creaked open wide enough for Tasha to sneak inside. Brax got a kick of relief followed by a slap of adrenaline.
Just like clockwork.

Having two men vie for Tasha's attention has been something of a challenge because it's not quite a good versus bad type of situation. Very fun to write though.

That's it for this week.
