Last week we learned that Kurt's date Aleisha got strep throat, and couldn't go with him to a party. After thinking it over, he decides to call Susan. She's been waiting of this call because she knew he couldn't resist talking to her about the football play she sent him. In this excerpt, he has just made his call.


“Susan, it’s Kurt Deveraux. I was calling to thank you for your help last night. Without your play we would’ve lost.”

“Oh, you’re welcome. I was glad I could do something; I like to see the Mavericks win.” Susan bit her lip to keep from laughing. Bet anything she knew where this conversation was going. 


“Yeah, I’ve seen you at a couple of games,” he said. “I know it’s short notice, but if you aren’t busy tonight, I’d really enjoy it if you’d go to a party with me; I’ve been told there’ll be dancing.” 

Blurb: 
Susan English can’t stand Robin Lanford! She’s so full of herself she irritates everyone on the faculty of Fairfield High. When Robin bets Susan fifty dollars that she can’t get a date with Kurt Deveraux, the head football coach, Susan jumps at the chance to put the little heifer in her place. She had no idea that teaching Robin a lesson would irrevocably change her life, strain treasured friendships, and throw two families into chaos.

A good story, Elaine! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. :-) !

Kim Magennis said...

Now, I am sure that is not quite what she expected? Unless she imagines it is his way of getting the source of her 'play' from her?

T. M. Hunter said...

If she expected it, hopefully she already had an answer ready. Fun snippet.

Christina Ochs said...

Susan seems a wee bit too sure of herself here. Or maybe his invitation isn't quite what she was expecting?

Siobhan Muir said...

Does this mean she wins the bet? Great snippet, Elaine.

Veronica Scott said...

Oh Susan....enjoying the story, although these guys sure are acting like teenagers :) Another fun snippet!

Charmaine Gordon said...

Yeah, he's like a kid but working in a school makes him appear like that. Now she win the bet and the guy. Go Susan!

Peter Vialls said...

I hope Susan knows what she's doing and what she's getting into. She seems just a little too sure of herself - something tells me she's dangerously overconfident.

I think it's fun to see the teachers acting like the kids. I look forward to these snippets every week!

I wonder if this is where she thought the conversation was going. And will the party count as a date or does the date have to be just the two of them going out for dinner?

Elizabeth Alsobrooks said...

Oh, a win-win! Great snippet! Thanks for sharing!--Book Bling Blogger.

And so she wins the bet ... but I'm betting she'll win much more before this is over.

Caitlin Stern said...

She's one smart cookie. I hope this wins her the bet!

Linda said...

She is so smart. I'm sure she totally planned that.

Daelyn Morgana said...

I'm with P.T., is that where she expected the conversation to go? Or did it just totally throw her? And it's about time he called her!

Iris B said...

And she's won the bet with this right? Look forward to finding out her answer.

Rachel Sanderson said...

"I've been told there'll be dancing" would generally scare me off but she seems like she's up for it!
