Date Night – Who Knew? – Friday Fictioneers

Good Wednesday morning, my peeps!  The sun is shining, mostly, it’s cold outside but not that bad (for us Quebecers, that is), I’ve got a nice big cappuccino keeping me warm and this fire in the picture provided by Anshu Bhojnagarwala sure helps even if it is virtual!

Always, a thank you to Rochelle Wisoff(no ‘e’)-Fields for gathering her flock to some sort of order week after week.

Have a great day!

Date Night – Who Knew?

You bastard! Siobhan raised her hand to hit him and he grabbed her wrist, pulling her to his hard, manly body.  She opened her mouth to swear and he slammed his lips against hers, silencing her.  His undeniable desire against her belly caused her body to respond with a burning heat that rose from her—

Betsy tossed the book aside.  Good grief!  Who reads this stuff?

Steve picked up Loves Raging Fire, “Whatcha reading?”


Ignoring her, he started to read aloud:

Riordan’s hand slid up Siobhan’s thigh to her —

“Whoa! Sexy!”

And so began a new date night ritual…

  1. “Read dirty to me, darling.” I guess that has a bit of a ring to it 😉 If she’s the more literate type it might be something like “When Jane and Elizabeth were alone…” “Yes!” “..the former, who had been cautious in her praise of Mr. Bingley before,…” “Oh, read it, read it!” “…expressed to her her sister how very much she admired him.” I mean, if Jane Austen doesn’t excite one, then forget it….

  2. I’ll leave this here, from If There Is Something to Desire by Vera Pavlova,

    “if necessary, the books shall be divided as follows: 
    you get the odd, I get the even pages; 
    “the books” are understood to mean the ones we used to read aloud 
    together, when we would interrupt our reading for a kiss,
    and would get back to the book after half an hour …”

  3. Dale, what really strikes me over the past few weeks, is how much your writing has grown and improved. It was always good, but it’s sharper, fuller. I found that FF really helped me find that story and flesh it out, too. I love what you’ve done here, with the couple who are reading a story, and with us the readers. So clever and well done! Love it.

    • Thank you SO much Dawn! It is so hard to judge one’s own work so having others point it out really means a lot.
      I am glad you felt this story was clever and well done. I’m gonna be smiling all day now.

  4. You managed to turn the horrible prose into a fun read. Bravo!
    Nothing wrong with romance or erotic fiction, but this flowery, cliché’d kind just makes the eyes roll endlessly… And I hear ‘ya on Shades. I painfully made it through the first book and refuse to read any more. There’s erotica and then there’s crap…

    • Yes… I was hoping to be somewhat original this week but let’s face it, fire equals lust and/or love so… but a Bodice Buster – methinks I am alone in that one 😉
      Glad you enjoyed it, Stu.


    • Ha ha! Love that expression, Russell!
      I’ve always used the “Just coz you’re on a diet, doesn’t mean you can’t look at the men” – which we can follow up with yours 😉
      I like to think it definitely could.


  5. LOL … Valentine’s Day Heat is in the air. I went with a similar write but in prose. You little hot tamale. Who doesn’t like a little heat with those yummy heart shaped chocolates and bed filled with sprinkles of rose petals. YUP … spicy and hot is a good thing; even Martha Stewart would agree. Muy caliente mi amiga …
