SULTRY SUMMER NIGHTS - IGNITE YOUR PASSIONS BLOG HOP TOUR - August 22-29
SUMMER LOVIN’…DID YOU GET VERY FAR?
Do the words summer lovin' bring back memories of your teenage years? We sure remember the good ole days of summer way back when … and so do the three main characters in our book, I.O.U. SEX. After all, their goal was to find their former high school steadies and give them the sex they’d missed out on so many years before.
So let your mind travel back in time and think ... going steady, necking at the drive-in, and summer lovin’ as we revisit Dallas with our character June. She’s at the drive-in theater with her one-and-only, and they’re not watching the show.

“Mmmm, Junie. You drive me wild.” Denny reached across the vinyl-covered seat and pulled June closer.
She snuggled against him and stretched up to whisper in his ear. “Wild, huh?” She inhaled his unique scent—Brut aftershave mixed with the faint aroma of Lava soap and motor oil from his dad’s garage.
Denny’s laugh sounded nervous. When he shivered, June giggled and stroked his wavy hair, then tickled his earlobe with her tongue, making him gasp.“Whoa, baby. You better slow down or you’ll get more than you bargained for.” He turned and grasped her shoulders, staring into her blue eyes. “Or have you changed your mind?”
June scooted away, her warm feelings cooled by Denny’s question. She pushed her long blonde hair off her face and anchored it behind her ears. “You know how I feel about going all the way. Why can’t we just have some fun?”
Denny groaned. “Junie, baby, you really don’t understand, do you? Have you ever heard of blue balls?”June stammered. “B-blue what?”
Denny ran his fingers through his hair, making the short strands stand on end. He sighed. “Never mind. Come back here, June Bug. Let’s figure out what we can do without actually doing it.” He pulled her closer and slid the spaghetti straps off her shoulders, gently kissing the spots where the fabric had been only moments before.
They’d done some heavy petting in the past, so June didn’t object. She loved it when Denny caressed her breasts and his kisses warmed her inside and out. Once she’d let him touch her down there. It felt go good—until she got scared and made him stop. She could only imagine the thrill of real sex.Of course, good girls didn’t go all the way. She’d had long discussions with Kiki and Peggy on the subject of how far to go without getting a bad reputation. Peggy said once you did something, boys seemed to expect it every time. And Kiki sure had a lot of information for someone who claimed virginity.
June smiled and unbuttoned Denny’s shirt.

Six more sentences from I.O.U. SEX. When three women track down their high school boyfriends, they get more than one surprise. In Kiki's rendezvous with Greg (he's now a televangelist), she has to defend herself against his rough treatment and smacks him in the nose with her elbow. Blood splatters his chest. Then ...
He pointed at her with an outstretched arm. "Seductress. Daughter of Satan. Come here and minister to my needs."Kiki stopped only long enough to grab a Bible from a nearby table and heave it at him. When the sharp corner of the book hit Greg square on the bridge of his nose, he screamed and collapsed back onto the carpet.

We really appreciate all the kind comments we've received on our novel, so this week we're again posting six more sentences from I.O.U. SEX. It's the story of three women who track down their high school boyfriends to give them the sex they never allowed as teenagers. In this scene, Kiki has rendezvoused with her old boyfriend Greg (who's now a televangelist), but things are going from bad to worse. He has ordered her to submit to him and he's playing way too rough.
Though a little wrestling could sometimes be fun, Kiki realized Greg had gone way beyond a playful tussle. He wasn't teasing.
"Obey, woman." Greg spoke in a voice pitched to reach the back rows of his congregation. He reached for her lace thong."Like hell I will," Kiki growled, really afraid now and angry enough to rip the hair from his head.

Do you like to learn a little history about other parts of the world while being entertained by a compelling story? Then you might enjoy Island Beneath the Sea by Isabel Allende. The story takes place in Haiti in the late 1700s, and is written in the point of view (primarily) of a slave girl.
I've written a review of the book on the Boomers & Books blog. So rather than rewrite it, here's the link:
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did! And if you get hooked on Allende's writing (as I have), you'll also want to read Daughter of Fortune. That's my favorite, so far.
