Book Hooks is a weekly meme hosted by Marketing for Romance Writers as part of the MFRW Authors Blog. It's a chance each week for you the reader to discover current WIP or previously published book by possibly new to you authors.
Today, I am showcasing a snippet from my just released hot billionaire romance Two Truths and a Lie from the Lawbreakers box set.
Scene set - The heist
Scene set - The heist
The large grandfather clock in the corner of the room chimed the hour. That was my cue to go to the bar. Lover Boy touched my arm as I passed. I swear I felt a tingle. I turned and smiled. He requested a whiskey. I nodded and continued to the bar. Perfect reason to be standing there, innocently waiting. As the bartender poured the drink, Mr. Chapman, the boss, arrived.
"You. Take a whiskey to the Lord's office. West Wing. First door on your left." He pointed across the room.
I lowered my head and mumbled, "Yes, sir." With both drinks on my tray, I walked across the room to Lover Boy. He accepted his drink with a smile. I fought the instinct to toss away the tray and press my mouth on those enticing, full kissable lips. Keeping my sight on the target, I passed through the crowd to the hallway that extended off to the side, otherwise known as the West Wing.
The hallway was dark and quiet. The sounds of the party fading as I moved along the carpet. My watched beeped. Showtime. I turned right, opened the door and entered the room. My heartbeat wanted to race, but I forced myself to remain calm. Do the job. Get out. Then, if I want, I can have a panic attack.
Five minutes later, the red diamond nestled against my glove-covered palm. The pear-shaped beauty mesmerized me. I've always been attracted to sparkly things. It's the feminine side of me. The practical side said, "You are holding five million dollars in your hand and you have about fifteen seconds to get out of here."
I tucked the diamond into an opening in the hem of my waitress uniform, sealed it with some duct tape then grabbed the drinks tray and slipped out the door, making sure to close it. I walked three steps to end of the hallway, turned and paused. My watch beeped informing me time was up.
