New Exception Teaser – The Usual

Hey Guys!

So my Facebook Author Page just reached 400 likes! Crazy, right?? So to celebrate I posted a new teaser. This is one of my favorite scenes because it’s one of those “Awwww” moments between Taylor and Emily.

I hope you enjoy it! =D

XO,

5th Teaser: The Usual

The blond barista who smiled at Taylor all those weeks back waved for Emily to approach the end of the counter. Her brows were pulled together tightly as she left her place in line and approached the young woman. The name tag stuck to her apron read Annabelle.

“Hi, you called me?” Emily asked confused.

“You’re Emily, right?” the woman asked. “Emily Watson?”

The confused frown in Emily’s face deepened, but her sweet tone didn’t waver. “Yes, can I help with something?”

“Not really, but I’ll have your drink ready in a sec,” Annabelle informed with a smile.

Once more Emily was baffled. “Okay, but shouldn’t I order and pay first?”

Annabelle giggled and shook her head fixing a lid on top of a venti paper cup and placing it in front of Emily. “It’s been taken care of.”

Emily eyed the woman in confusion and opened her mouth to ask what she meant, but Annabelle continued with the explanation she was looking for. “Your drop dead gorgeous friend just left. Apparently he knew you’d come here. Before he paid for it he marked the cup himself and left clear instructions of how you liked your coffee,” she informed with a swooning expression on her face.

Emily’s eyes instantly dropped to the cup. Her lips curling into a broad smile and proving where Taylor was concerned, she was not in charge of her own face. She thanked Annabelle who smiled and winked at her and made her way to the sofa by the window.

Removing the protective sleeve Emily read the words scribbled in black ink.

Emily A. Watson

“The Usual”

 A whole lot of bold coffee + some skinny milk + a drizzle of cinnamon

I told you me knowing your order might come in handy, enjoy! See you soon, Tay.

New Teasers!!

Hey Guys,

After taking a little break to sleep and give hubby some attention, I finally started to write my new book. Yay!! But with all the craziness I completely forgot to post a couple of teasers I posted on my Facebook page. Oops!

Since I’m a firm believer in the “better late  than never” saying, I’ve decided to post them together. =D  These two teasers show you a bit of Emily’s two best friends, Jody and Zack. They were so much fun writingand I can’t begin to tell you how much I LOVED writing them. 

I hope you enjoy them!

XO,

Patty

******************************

1st teaser – Red Hot Goddess

“If I thought you two would be this entertaining to my patrons, I wouldn’t have bothered hiring a band,” Jody teased, motioning to the several pairs of eyes staring.

Blood and heat blotched Emily’s face and neck. She hated being stared at. Noticing her unease and knowing her well enough to pinpoint where it was coming from, Zack hugged her around the waist and whispered in her ear. “They are bound to stare when you walk in here looking like a red-hot goddess amongst denim clad mortals. Come on, Cheesecake, relax! It’s envy not mockery.” He kissed her cheek tenderly and felt her relax a smidge.

“Your friend is upstairs, Emmy,” Jody informed pointing her chin to the general direction. “And I think he just saw you.”

Emily’s eyes moved to the mezzanine, where Taylor stood by the railing holding a pool cue and flashing a smile worthy of a toothpaste commercial. Their eyes locked in silent communication. He gestured with his head for her to join himand she agreed with a wide smile and an almost imperceptible nod.

“The freeloader?” Zack’s voice was as excited as the look on his face. “Sweetie, that’s not cute at all…”

“I know right? That’s just a tall order of yummy,” Jody continued excitedly, fanning herself.

Emily’s eyes returned to her friends filled with incredulity. “Seriously? And I’m the teenager. He’s just a nice guy, quit bugging me.” She smoothed her dress and turned to walk to the game room.

2nd teaser – Tamale

“Quit staring.”

“We’re not staring, Cheesecake.”

“Fuck that, of course we are,” Jody interjected rolling her eyes at both her friends. “The man is hot as a tamaleand he steals your email from his sister’s phone to send you pictures and emails from god damned China. You bet your skinny hinny we’ll stare.”

As much as Jody’s reaction was to be expected, it didn’t make the situation any less aggravating. “We’re friends Jody. If you were in China wouldn’t you send me photos?”

“Sure I would. But answer this, am I a tamale?”

The whole situation had Zack choking on his wine and roaring with laughter. As always Jody’s unfiltered mouth had Emily’s traumatized personality backed up into an uncomfortable corner which required his immediate assistance.

“Jody, darling, that’s a stupid question,” he teased. “Fire is one thing you have plenty. That and boobs. Now leave Cheesecake alone. Tamale or not, Taylor’s proving to be the really nice guy she told us he is, and that’s all we care about.” Nobody knew how to deal with those two women better than Zack. He turned his conciliatory gaze at Emily. “Now, will you please, tell us about the emails?”
