Roller Coaster Emotions-Six Sentence Sunday

~~Mature content~~~

On select Sundays I'll be sharing a six-sentence excerpt from one of my works in progress, as part of Six Sentence Sunday.

This week's six is from an ollllld work-in-progress that I dust off every now and then to play with. It's a romantic thriller/mystery titled TWELVE STEPS TO MURDER.

Drew turned me toward him and stepped close until my back was against the car door. He took my hands, tracing the backs with his thumbs. His nearness and the maddening tingle running up my arms melted the last bit of residual awkwardness from the tense scene at dinner.

His heated gaze bored deep into mine, and my stomach began to somersault. Just when I felt like my roller coaster emotions would unhinge me completely, he broke the silence. “Can we please start over?”
