36 days until my novel, The Lone Wolf, launches – that’s only 5 weeks!
After her husband’s infidelities are revealed, Kasey Sanford just wants to rediscover who she is. After an abusive childhood and years as a career soldier, Andrew Adams just wants someone to tell him that he’s doing the right thing with his life. When their paths cross, Kasey and Andrew embark on a tumultuous journey that demonstrates just what they’re willing to do to save the ones they love.
Last week, Andrew made the decision to move with his girlfriend to North Carolina. She moved right away, and he joined her a couple months later. In this chunk, he just got to her apartment for good – and found her in bed with another guy.
“What the hell, Lauren?” I said as I stared at her, pleading for this not to be happening, not another relationship ending this way, not after I’d just given up everything in Kentucky for her.
“You can hate me, if you want,” she said to me as she fidgeted with the hem of her shirt. “I wouldn’t blame you, but he was just fun in bed. You’re the one I want to be with, Andrew.”
I pulled her door shut behind me and calmly walked down the hall out to the parking lot; calmly pulled out my keys and carved “WHORE” into the driver’s side door of Lauren’s car; calmly got into my truck and drove off.
I was in a new town, with no place to live and no job for another week. Just me and a cat and a trailer full of all my shit. What the hell was I supposed to do now?

This is a great excerpt. It concisely lays out the situation, immediately making me hate L, and feel so sorry for S. Very nicely done!
So yeah, she was selfish from the start no doubt now. “He was fun in bed” what the hell?
Wow, powerful snippet, what a mess he’s found himself in…I like this guy and I want him to be happy. Excellent excerpt!
OMG, I worried something like this was going to happen! I sure hope he finds somewhere to stay. Ugh, the poor guy…what a whore for certain.
Poor Andrew. :-( What a rotten thing for Lauren to do, but he’s well rid of her. Great excerpt!
Wow. Lauren is such a beeyotch. Good riddance! As for Andrew, I think now is the perfect time for him to cross paths with Kasey. :)
