In last week's excerpt we learned that Aimee works in Rocky's wrestling show and doesn't like her dress because it's so cheap looking. Today, the match begins.


Cade McCoy, whose hair was a greasy-looking, dirty blonde that reached his shoulders, threw off his hat and black leather vest and shouted something to Rocky, who ignored him. The barrage of noise intensified as Cade flexed his muscles at the screaming fans. 

Aimee clapped her hands to her ears to protect them even though it would annoy Rich. She’d be deaf before this debacle finally ended.

Her part was finished for the moment. She glared at Cade, kissed Rocky, and took Rich’s arm as he escorted her from the ring, taking care not to catch her stiletto heels in the ropes. The heels had blue sequins on them too.

The next fifteen minutes were pure purgatory. She held her breath when Cade put Rocky in a headlock and punched his face. He released Rocky and gave him a kick in the butt that sent him sprawling; Rocky seemed dazed by the punches. 

In case anyone was wondering about it, my granddaughter's husband is a wrestler. He owns a gym and teaches other wrestlers how to do it.  If you like the sound of the book, you can get it at http://amzn.to/23yoW2d

It doesn't look good for Rocky!

I could tell you know what you're talking about when it comes to wrestling. And I love the little detail of the sequins on the heels. Great snippet!

Oh boy, hope things turn around for Rocky!

Charmaine Gordon said...

You brought me right into this scene with the noise, the danger, the crowd, her dress and sparkling shoes. What a picture!

Teresa Cypher said...

Poor Aimee. Terrible situation she's in!

Diane Burton said...

Excellent way of drawing in the reader with little details. Nice job.

PT said...

Great details. Really sounds like she hates it, though, and doesn't want to be there.

Christina Ochs said...

This seems like a pressure-cooker experience. Not for the faint-hearted!

arhuel said...

Ten sentences is so short. I want more!

Caitlin Stern said...

I've never really understood how people can want to watch two people beating each other up. Skills or not, that's someone bleeding up there. She doesn't sound like she enjoys it much, either!

Ed Hoornaert said...

I wonder how much longer the bout goes on. It hasn't started very well for him.

Cecilia Corona said...

Such detail and I'm with Arhuel 10 sentences are way too short.

Elizabeth Alsobrooks said...

Very graphic, but it's not going to well, depending on your POV here...wondering who is going to come out ahead here...

Veronica Scott said...

Such an interesting glimpse into a world I know very little about. Enjoyed the details in the excerpt!

Iris B said...

Interesting scene, well done on the details.

Like the use of Purgatory in there. Things aren't looking good for Rocky, are they?
