Saturday Sample: The Captain and the Cheerleader

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.

We know the Susan won her bet with Robin when Kurt asked her to go to a party with him. Unfortunately, they drank too much and ended up sleeping together which didn't please Susan at all. She begged Kurt to take her home, and in today's excerpt they've just reached Susan's house.Kurt has assured Susan that he didn't make a habit of making love to women in no condition to say no, but he already wanted her, so the tequila pushed him over the edge. That's where we pick up today. 

“Don’t you think I’m attractive?”

Susan hung her head. “Yes, you know I do. I...I 
remember telling you so last night.”

Kurt smiled for the first time. “I remember.” He took a deep breath. “Don’t let this ruin everything. I know we shouldn’t have done it, but we did, and we can’t undo it. It wasn’t just the sex I enjoyed last night. It was everything. I like the way you smile and talk football with me. Dancing with you is fun,

and watching you deal with the kids at school is a pleasure. Give us a chance.”

At least he's willing to tell her what he likes beyond the sex. Good snippet, Elaine. :)

Oh the "after" regret. I hope she'll give him a chance.
