Hanging on the Edge -Snippet Sunday

~~It's Snippet Sunday!~~

On Sundays, I share tidbits of my works in progress as part of Weekend Warrior’s 8-Sentence Sunday. This week's snippet is from my work in progress DISORDERLY COWBOYS, book 6 of my LONE WOLVES OF SHAY FALLS cowboy/werewolf/menage series.

last week, Lana decided to climb a ladder and found herself clinging to the roof...

Lana started to pull her leg back up, freezing in panic when the movement threatened her precarious balance. She’d wanted a mild dose of fear, not abject terror.
“You’re so stupid, so damn stupid,” she whispered through clenched teeth.
She was trapped on a roof because she was that desperate for attention from two hot studs who didn’t even want her anymore. How utterly pathetic.
Her cries for help turned to tears squeezing their way through the eyelids shut tight to block the reality of how far away the ground--and her dignity--had become.

  1. Well she might be stupid but at least she is going to learn from this one.

  2. Ah, she sounds more desperate than stupid, really. I like her.

  3. Poor girl. No dignified way out of this.

  4. I'm feeling sorry for her that she felt she had to go to such measures to be noticed. Great snippet.

  5. Oh wow! She's really got a problem. Great snippet!

  6. Oh crap, she's gotten herself into a miserable spot. A lot of us have done things we wish we hadn't! I like your descriptions here :)

  7. Wow, that's a tough situation. I don't think she should say she's stupid. Desperation can lead us into things like this. Nice 8!

  8. I feel so sorry for her. I hope things turn out okay. Great snippet!

  9. This is wonderful! It's crisp. It's vivid. I've said that to myself, "You are so stupid, so damn stupid!" lol. I can so relate!

    Perfect last line, "...of how far away the ground--and her dignity--had become." :-)

  10. So I'm very worried for her! Excellent excerpt, definitely makes me want to keep reading.

  11. Ah she's so hard on herself poor thing. She'll come back stronger. Love seeing inside her mind.

  12. The last line is awesome! I think just about everyone can relate to that feeling of self-disappointment...
