Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors

Welcome to Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors, your chance to sample the work of a talented group of authors. After you finish here, you can find me snippets at:

Here's a blurb and excerpt, and this week we'll be starting with Kurt's POV.

 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.


Kurt left the faculty lounge and joined the football team for its traditional pre-game meal. He

filled his plate from the buffet and sat down beside his longtime friend and fellow coach, Jason Cooper. Jason had been his best friend ever since they were in Mrs. Turner’s first grade class at Fairfield Elementary.

“Hey, what’s wrong with you?” demanded Jason. He dug his elbow into Kurt’s side when Kurt failed to reply to his question about the night’s strategy. “You’re a million miles away.”

“Sorry. I was thinking about what happened in the lounge a minute ago.”

“What happened?”

“Susan English gave me a compliment.”

New Review for The Captain and the Cheerleader:

The pretty head cheerleader and the handsome jock are all grown up and living respectable lives within the community until a series of unusual events and unlikely behavior lands them in a BIG moral dilemma. Can they mend their fractured relationships with friends and family? More importantly, can they learn to forgive themselves and each other?

I gave this story FIVE stars because there are several very well written passages about love, forgiveness, and moving forward in faith and life that really need to be shared. A lot could be learned from the counseling words of Father Duncan.

It sounds as though receiving a compliment from her has upset all his expectations. I love it!

Unknown said...

He's that flustered about the compliment... that's a good sign for her bet!
