Hump Day Hook No. 31 #HDH

humpdayhookHi everyone and welcome to Hump Day Hook, which is basically where authors post a paragraph from a WIP or a published work to show it off to the world. This week, I’m sharing another snippet from my new release, Rubenesque erotic romance novella, Mean Girls. It follows on directly from last week’s post.

She was just about to start another ten laps, when she heard voices from the other side of the pool. Voices that clearly forgot how well they carried on water. It was as though they were right next to her.

“God, I’m surprised all the water doesn’t jump out of the pool when she gets in. And the way she swims—she’ll cause a tidal wave one of these days.”

The spiteful words were followed by a trio of sniggers, and Adele gritted her teeth. Part of her wished that she could create a bloody tidal wave, so it would sweep those bitches under water and drown them. The other part of her tsked at the thought. Ideas like that made her just as bad as them, just as unpleasant, just as cowardly.

Want more? Of course you do! Here’s the page  for Mean Girls. And click here to go and visit the rest of the Hump Day Hook gang. Leave us comments about our pieces – we love it! 🙂

Happy Reading x

    Her internal dialogue is telling. I bet there’s a lot of readers who could relate to this character.

    Wow, they really are mean girls! Good for her for knowing the difference between right and wrong. I hope she comes out the winner in the end!!

    Swimming pools are the worst for getting bitched about in my experience.

    I like Adele. It’s normal to have murderous thoughts, sometimes.
