#Guest Something to Lose by @TamraLassiter

Tamra Lassiter lives in Northern Virginia with her supportive husband, two lovely daughters, elegant Great Dane and not-so-elegant, but very sweet, English Bulldog. She enjoys spending time with her family, reading and of course, writing.

1. What is the sweetest thing someone has done for you?
It’s hard to choose just one thing. Most recently, my mother-in-law flew into town from her vacation so that she could attend my first book launch party.

2. What kind of music you like?
80’s alternative. My favorites are The Smiths and The Cure.

3. Do you like to dance?
Not really, but it is fun sometimes. Guess I just have to be in the mood.

4. Can you describe your dream home?
I would love a secluded cabin on a lake. There would be lots of windows with pretty views and a huge deck or patio.

5. If you could be any character, from any literary work, who would you choose to be? Why?
Nancy Drew would be fun. She’s young and has a cute boyfriend. She travels to many cool locations and she’s smart enough to solve every mystery that comes her way. The only bad side is that she changes clothes three or four times everyday. Not for me.

Everyone has something to lose.

Camden Piotrowski is justifiably upset to find her boyfriend in the arms of another woman. But it’s not the end of her world and definitely not something that a bubble bath, good wine, and cookie dough won’t help. Her pity party is interrupted when handsome Seth Vendetti bursts into her bathroom. She soon discovers that her world and those in it are not as they seem. Can she trust Seth’s version of the truth and make him realize that even he has something to lose?

I finish and place my plate and fork on the coffee table and turn to face Joey. He’s totally into me, or seems to be, but is it enough for him to want to go for the full gusto? He leans towards me and lightly kisses me just below my right ear. The motion does absolutely nothing for me other than make me feel a little nauseous. It’s not like when Seth’s lips touch me. Thoughts of Seth make my cheeks flush. Joey must take that as a good sign because he goes for my lips next. I fight the urge to flee and try to fake enjoyment. Does it work? Can he tell?

Joey’s hands move around my neck. He pulls me closer. I pull away and look to him shyly.

“You feel it, don’t you?” he asks, a creepy smile on his face.

I smile, as if I’m embarrassed. I know my cheeks are still flushed, mostly with worry for what I’m about to do. I nod my head towards Comb-Over and Crooked Nose, who have just taken seats at the table. “Can they go somewhere?” I ask as innocently as possible. I even bat my eyelashes a couple times just for effect. Joey smiles again, this time triumphant, a knowing smile and then snaps his fingers. The men exit my apartment without saying a word.

80's alternative is awesome! I'm a big fan of music from the 80's in general, but you mention two of my favorites!!
