#8Sunday #SnippetSunday: Jan 19 2014



Each week authors from all over and writing in all genres bring you snippets from their work.  It could be a work in progress or a completed piece.  It could be published or not. But it’s only 8 sentences.

This week I’m taking a little detour.  Don’t worry, I’ll come back to A Legacy of Lies in a couple of weeks.  But for two or three weeks, I wanted to share a few snippets from my just released Friends with Benefits.  This is the story of Angela and Tyler O’Neil. Tyler wants Connor’s help with a very special summer activity.  Yes, Friends with Benefits is a Contemporary Erotic Romance, a ménage.

Now, in the interest of keeping to our 8 line rule, I did a little creative work with the punctuation to combine a few sentences so I could give you enough of a taste without cutting it too short. This is the very beginning. Connor is actually the one speaking first.


“You want me to do what?”

“I want you to seduce my wife.” Tyler O’Neil grinned, as Connor stared at him from across the table, mouth hanging open, eyes wide, as all around them men and women filed into the bar.

“I…ah…mmm…Christ, Tyler, I’m not sure what to say.” Connor set his beer on the table, a soft tap of glass against wood, and rubbed a hand over his face, his head swiveled in slow motion, his gaze shifting to the window overlooking the street, and he appeared to be staring at two seniors arguing over a parking spot.

“Listen, it’s not what you’re thinking,” Tyler said.

“How do you know what I’m thinking? I don’t even know what I’m thinking.”


So? What do you think?  If you’re interested in more, I’ll spend a couple of weeks here.  But I do promise to return to Jacob and Elissa’s story.  You can read the past snippets of those here:  ALL my snippets.

Please jump back to the main site for  Weekend Writing Warriors and visit  Snippet Sunday on Facebook to see the many other authors bringing you a glance into their worlds for this week.

I’m looking forward to catching up with everybody.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend! 




Can sexual exploration lead to three times the bliss?

FriendswithBenefitsByAnneLange200x300Tyler had no idea his wife Angela’s desires so closely matched his own. But when some unguarded pillow talk reveals her fantasy of two men at once, Tyler jumps at the chance to make her happy. Enlisting the help of his best friend Connor, who’d shared some threesome adventures with him in the past, Tyler secretly hopes exploring Angela’s fantasies will lead to his own personal desire—a permanent threesome with the two people he loves most in the world. 

Connor can’t believe it when his best friend asks him to seduce his wife. Then he meets Angela, and all the women in his past fade away. With Tyler’s blessing, Connor sets out to melt Angela’s reserve, and when Tyler joins the party, the three of them set the sheets on fire.

Angela is floored when her husband suggests they explore some of her fantasies—things she’d only read about but never in a million years thought she’d actually do. Sandwiched between Tyler and Connor, she’s never felt so treasured, so protected, so loved. But the reality proves much more complicated than the fantasy. She loves her husband, but she finds herself falling for his best friend too. That’s not normal, is it? What will people think?

    I know it’s been said many times before, but that last line is terrific.

    Brings a whole new meaning to the old Henny Youngman joke, “Take my wife… Please. “

  3. Tina Christopher

    Great snippet. I’d love to find out what happens next;).

    I like the premise, too–looks like you aren’t going too make it TOO easy for them. :)

    The last line was truly terrific! Excellent excerpt!

    I love that last line! The whole thing was great but I’m really glad I wasn’t drinking anything when I read that last line.

  8. S.J. Maylee

    That made me laugh. What a great exchange. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of this conversation. :)

  9. Sarah Cass

    wow…an intense moment between friends…love the line “How do you know what I’m thinking? I don’t even know what i’m thinking.” It says so much!

  10. FCEtier

    I liked the last line.
    Could go in several directions, maybe Connor has had his eye on Tyler’s wife for a long time…

  11. Gemma Parkes

    Oh it’s a tricky one. I’m not surprised he doesn’t know how to react. You captured the conversation in a very realistic way.
