Sunday Six ~ Cherry Tune-Up

August 14, 2011

Here are the first six sentences of our erotic free read Cherry Tune-Up: 

Bobbi Jo Martin hung back in the shadows under the Highway Thirty-Seven Racetrack stands. Acrid smoke, fumes and dust from a long night of racing swirled in the hazy light but couldn’t entirely block her view of her childhood best friend. There he was, Jack Day, strutting toward a red pickup with a buxom brunette clinging on each arm. She cringed—they must be the spoils that went to the winner of the feature race.

Deflated, Bobbi Jo shuffled toward her rental car. She’d had no contact with Jack for nearly ten years, but she just knew he’d help her with her current problem.

    Bobbi Jo sounds like she needs someone like Jack to rev her engine. Great intro!

    Wow! I want to read that! Published on Literotica? Why isn’t it published at Smashwords or something, girlfriend?

    I love reunion (and rescue) stories! Great six. I could smell the fumes–and feel her pain. Excellent job!

      OOoo thanks, Kally!

      We wanted to get something out there as a free read & someone recommended Literotica, so off we went – we’ve had great numbers over there and some fun feedback. Have to check out Smashwords – tell me why you like it!

      Thanks! Sometimes I think the first few lines are the hardest – how to set the hook and get the info we want out there, without dumping too much in. Glad it worked!

      Thanks, Liz. That’s our only one at Literotica so far – they mostly have short stories, and we tend to write novellas or full length. We serialized this one into chapters, seemed to work okay.

    You have captured a scene full of country mystic. I wonder how she’s going to capture him.

      actually, it’s a huge question who will capture whom!

    Great six – you’ve really set the scene. I hope Jack notices her and helps!

    • adrianakraft permalink
      August 14, 2011 4:38 pm

      Oh, I think he’ll notice, all right! But help? That’ll come on his own terms…

    Love how he’s strutting off with 2 brunettes! I could definitely feel her hesitation to approach. Wonder how she’s going to get to him to get the help she needs!
