“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.
“Hi,” she stuttered. “Actually, thanks, but no thanks.”
“Hey, just this one,” he persisted.
“Honestly, I don’t think it would be fair. My friend is waiting for me to bring her a glass of water. Next time perhaps,” she heard herself saying. There was something inside her that wasn’t ready yet for the whole flirting and dating business.
But Jeremy wouldn’t take no for an answer. “How about you take the water over and come back for your drink?”
Hollie exhaled a small breath. He’d cornered her, and she didn’t like it. But there was something about him she wasn’t able to resist. She stared at him, and his mischievous eyes prolonged the moment.
Crap! And stupid me for melting in those green eyes.
There was nothing left to do but give in. “Okay, I’ll be right back.” She picked up the glass of water and made her way through the masses back again to Alex. “This guy just invited me for a drink,” she said to Alex.
Hollie glanced uneasily over her shoulder. “Jeremy.”
“Great. So what are you doing here then?” Alex teased. “Off you go, this is your chance. He is quite a hunk, isn’t he?”
“I’d appreciate a bit of help here, Alex. What am I supposed to do?”
Alex shook her head. “You’re nuts, Hollie. Look at him. A dream of a man. And…if all else fails, at least you saved some money on a lemon vodka.” Alex grinned mischievously at her and pushed her off the seats. “Go, for heaven’s sake. You’re beautiful, intelligent, and all the other things. Just go.”
So Hollie returned to Jeremy, who was talking to another guy. Her heart thudded loudly, and she wasn’t all that sure about this idea anymore. When Jeremy saw her stepping closer, though, he broke into a leisurely smile.
“Here’s your drink.” He handed over the lemon vodka.
“Thanks.” Hollie was so nervous she was hardly able to speak, let alone think about what to say to him.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!

Hollie needs to seize the opportunity when it flirts with her!
LOL … like the pun … 🙂
Well good for Alex, for encouraging her! I’ll be very fascinated to see where this goes and how Jeremy handles the situation. Great snippet!
Thank you, Veronica. Glad you liked it.
Be brave, Holly!
She will be 🙂
Oh, man, Club 101 – never leave your drink with a guy you don’t know. I hope it works out in her favor. Good snippet, Iris.
Hi Siobhan … naive as I am I never even thought of that … good comment. I assure you, she’ll be fine.
Maybe she should have a few sips, or gulps, of that vodka to rile up her courage. Love the line of Alex’s about being beautiful, intelligent, and all those other things. Got a good laugh out of me. Alex sounds like something else of a friend, but the good kind. Good snippet.
Hahaha … glad you liked it … yes, Alex is quite a character … I sometimes think even worth her own book 🙂
Thankf for stopping by Daelyn.
I enjoyed that snippet and hope it works out for Hollie!
Thank you, Ros.
