Everybody Reads YA ~ Valentino
Happy “Everybody Reads YA” Sunday! Today I’m sharing an excerpt from my paranormal short story: Valentino. Eros’ evil cousin tries to ruin Valentine’s Day.
He presses harder on the accelerator, his foot twitching inside his sneaker. His is an easy life, one he’s taken for granted for years, but now … now … things are so different. Jack Byers lives only for Lea Wright.
Jack comes from the richest family in Landry. They live on a hill, overlooking the valley where most of the town barely exists since the recession began, yet he’s never really been as bad as the rest of his family. Sure, he has movie star good looks, with his shoulder brushing mink brown hair, green eyes that tend to sparkle with repressed laughter, and a build that put him on the football team long before he entered school.
