Amy is the ultimate trophy girl--gorgeous face, killer body, and a vivacious personality. But there's something else about her, something that makes her even more special. Amy is new. A transfer student from out of state, she's starting her senior year without knowing a soul. And that means she's up for grabs, available.

Infatuated from the moment he sees her, David is determined to meet Amy, and if the fates are willing, to spend the rest of his life with her. But his shyness prevents him from approaching her--until his friends devise a contest to determine who will be the first to prove their manhood by seducing her.

Thank you, Mickey, for hosting me today on I’m A Book Shark with my New-Adult romance novella, The Possibilities of Amy.

When I think back on high school dating, there are very few moments—and even fewer guys—who left a lasting impression. Fortunately, at the time I was full of hope and expectation, and an unshakeable belief that the not-so-pleasant experiences with tongue-thrusting frogs was a necessary part of the process to eventually find the prince of my dreams.

I remember one first date in particular. He asked me to a drive-in movie, and since I couldn’t wait to fulfill my romantic fantasy of cuddling with a strong, great-looking older guy (all of two years my senior) while watching a love story on the silver screen, I accepted. The first hour more than met my expectations as we shared a tub of buttered popcorn and a few soft kisses. But as the movie stretched into the second half, my date began “making his move,” determined to complete his mission of conquest. Without going into details, let’s just say he failed to establish any inroads, much less a beachhead.

In the following excerpt, the main character, Dave, is on his first date with Amy. They’re at the drive-in movie and Dave has been cautious, testing the waters, still a bit unsure about Amy’s interest in him. Little does he know he’s about to be rewarded for his patience . . .

Excerpt from The Possibilities of Amy

“Dave? The air is getting cold.”

I pulled the speaker inside and rolled up the window, letting the glass pinch the cord. I glanced up at the screen, not because I cared about the movie, but to confirm the plot was still unresolved, that there was still time to hold her, caress her, to compress an entire lifetime together into a few fleeting minutes.

I slowly ran my fingers up and down her arms. I wasn’t expecting a response, but she set her hands over mine and pulled them up to her face, giving my thumb a playful bite. Maybe she was trying to recover, to distance herself from an uncertain future. Could revealing the truth have changed the way she thought of me? Had I become a diversion, something to take her mind off her problems? Perhaps under the circumstances, it’s all I could be.

Her teeth had barely left my thumb when she began to slowly separate the fingers of my left hand, softly nibbling at each fingertip.

Suddenly, all first date pretense was gone, the awkward hesitation unnecessary. I turned my head just enough to kiss her cheek, feeling the muscles in her face contracting into a smile.

She leaned back, leaving the wet streak of her tongue as she playfully flicked the edge of my ear. She licked her lips and opened them slightly, moving her mouth closer to mine.

It was a light kiss, served to me like a question, begging for an answer.

She twisted her body, turning to face me. I opened my arms, waiting for her to resettle. Instead, she pushed back, staring at me with an intense gaze, as if searching my face for something familiar under the reflected layers of colored movie shadow. I wondered if I reminded her of someone from her past, and she was struggling to bring long forgotten details back into the here and now.

I pulled her face to mine and tasted the inside of her mouth. She returned my kiss with surprising passion, her tongue probing, sliding, exploring. Unlike my fantasy lover—reserved, yet submissive—the real Amy was driven with passion and need, initiating a torrent of wet, saturated kisses.

She slowly writhed against me, her hands gliding along my shoulders and across my chest. I slid my hands lower, across her butt and down the backs of her thighs, the sensations of my skin against hers no longer distinguishable as individual and specific areas of contact. She was everywhere, and I would not let her separate from me.
