Welcome to Snippet Sunday – ten (or so) sentences from all your favorite romance authors! You’ll find them all at this Facebook Group every Sunday:
Picking up where we left off last Sunday from the opening scene, at their 20th college reunion:
“How could I forget that year?” Brenda arched an eyebrow. “I didn’t want you to move out, but he had you smothered with love—you weren’t about to listen to me.”
Janet pulled her hand away a second time. “I loved Tom. He loved me. We just weren’t ready to get married.”
“Getting pregnant changed that.” Brenda settled her hands in her own lap.
Janet nodded. She’d been so diligent about taking her pill each morning. Only years later, after a night of carousing, had Tom confessed that he’d switched her pills with look-alike fakes for four months before she announced her pregnancy. He’d wanted her to drop out of college entirely.
Thankfully, looking back, her parents had blocked that move by providing them with additional financial support and help with baby Thomas, when he arrived. Janet graduated cum laude with a diploma, a husband, and a baby. What more could a girl ask for?
Janet Baxter keeps her post-divorce life neatly compartmentalized: Secure job, spacious Westchester County home, successful adult children, dependable community volunteer activities. Why is she drawn—for the first time ever—to attend her twenty-year college reunion in New York City?
Always a free spirit, Brenda Cassidy is comfortably bisexual and has no plans to ever settle down. But a fling? The reappearance of svelte, reserved Janet Baxter in Brenda’s life is nothing less than a gift, worthy of every enticement Brenda can conjure up. Can Brenda seduce Janet into an endless night of the lovemaking they enjoyed too briefly as college roommates? What if the lady wants more?

Five Stars at Goodreads: “Building up the sexual tension between these two is the heart of this book. When they finally give in, I was right there with them. They are HOT! … a quick read but so well written I did not want it to end.”
