“Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. ”
(5 star review)
I’m sharing another snippet from “Journey to Her Dreams”, my second book I wrote and which is now available for FREE for Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
I’ve moved a little forward again with Hollie and her friend at the nightclub – meeting Jeremy.
Thirsty from their dancing, the girls made their way towards
the bar, but stopped right next to Davo, who happily told them a
bit more about Jeremy.
“Yeah, that’s Jez. He’s only been in town for a few weeks. He’s got some management job with a new company, which only just started a business here. You know, the one just near the airport, don’t you?” Davo stared questioningly at the girls, but they shook their heads.
“He’s a distant cousin somehow, so I invited him to come along. Mum is a close friend of his.” Before the girls were able to ask anything else, Davo had already left to chat with someone else he’d discovered in the crowd.
“Management?” Hollie wondered out loud. “No thanks. I reckon that’s way too far up my alley. Anyway, it’s my shout. What would you like?”
“I still have my drink with Ben, but some water for the throat would be nice. I’ll see you over there.”
Hollie made her way to the bar. As she struggled through the crowd, she noticed how Jeremy was watching her. A tingle shuddered through her lower body. She pretended not to be affected by his gaze, but her heart was pounding twice as fast, and her cheeks were burning. She returned his smile and took in how attractive he was, indeed. Even in the typical dimmed nightclub light, she noticed his athletic body, the short dark hair, and his
immaculate white teeth. She liked the combination of his black denim jeans, the simple white shirt, and a casual jacket with the sleeves folded to his elbows. It had been a few years since she had been filled with such inner upheaval—since she had met Jackson to be exact.
For crying out loud, Hollie, just get a grip on yourself.
It seemed a long way and a long time, but she finally got to the bar and ordered a lemon vodka as well as some water. Trying to get some change out of her tight pockets, she startled when someone spoke to her.
“May I buy you this drink?”
Hollie turned and looked straight into Jeremy’s eyes.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

Maybe she was broadcasting her thought waves in his direction.
Maybe 🙂 … Thanks for stopping by, Ed.
Ooh, quite the moment of sudden wish fulfillment and possibilities! Really enjoyed the excerpt…
Glad you did. Thanks, Veronica.
I wish the snippet didn’t stop there. 🙂
🙂 Thank you, Karen!
Interesting nickname for the name Jeremy; I wonder how he got that one. Sounds like these two were having the same kind of thoughts if he found his way to her.
Thank you, Daelyn. I thought Jez was quite common as a nickname.
