He Needs Answers #pnr #WIP #excerpt #NaNoWriMo #WeWriWa #8Sunday

The Weekend Writing Warriors hosts a group of writers who share excerpts of their published works or works-in-progress every Sunday for reader's enjoyment. Please, be sure to check out the other writers in this group. You might find your next great read!

I'm nearing the end of writing my WIP novel for this year's National Novel Writing Month. I've been posting brief snippets all month about my New Adult Paranormal Romance, Loving Boone. If you've been reading these posts, thank you for following with me along this journey! I've needed inspiration to complete this challenge and reading your wonderful comments have been great help to keep me writing. 

If you're just joining me now, you can catch up by reading Going Home, To Meet Again, and He's Not Human

“So, why free me? Your father will be furious when he finds out I’m gone.” Even now, Boone kept his keen hearing peeled for any signs of footsteps approaching the door. Once he was finished with Beth-Ann he’d make his escape, but not before he got his own answers from her.

“Because, I believe you.”

He lowered his hand only a fraction so his fingers rested alongside her neck. His thumb traced her jawline and her pulse fluttered rapidly against his palm.

“Boone,” Beth-Ann said, her voice a little breathless. His gaze dropped to her mouth.

  1. What a well-done, pivotal scene! Nice work, Tricia. Hope you met your NaNo goal!

  2. You'll make it to the end, I know it! Great snippet, too. :D

  3. Great snippet, Tricia. Good luck for the last stretch!

  4. Great snippet, Tricia. Good luck for the last stretch!

  5. Sounds like he needs to get going, never mind the answers! But I totally get why he's lingering....enjoyed the snippet.

  6. Congratulations on nearing the end of NaNoWriMo. That's a big accomplishment. Your snippet captures a moment very similar to my snippet this week. Great minds, etc.

    I had one thought I'll pass along. The image of keeping his hearing 'peeled' jarred me, though it may not bother anyone else. Keeping eyes peeled makes metaphorical sense, in that eyelids could be similar to banana peels ... but ears have no analogous peels to remove.

  7. Very touching scene. Great lead up to a kiss. Or not. LOL

  8. Great work with Nano and powerful scene.
