Hump Day Hook #3 – Grand Slam

humpdayhookHi everyone and welcome to Hump Day Hook, where authors share a paragraph or two from their published works or WIPs. Here’s more from Grand Slam, out now. Enjoy!

The thrust of the brakes pressed me into the seat, the plane rattled and juddered as deceleration took a firm grip of the final moments of my one-way trip. Needing mental distraction, I flicked open my copy of Global Tennis, now looking a little worse for wear after being crushed against me.

I’d read it cover to cover in the last twelve hours but still, one article kept pulling me back. Not because Travis Connolly was one hell of a hot specimen of the male species, but because he was the newbie at Los Carlos Tennis Academy. He and I had something in common because I too was a new recruit. Not that you’d ever catch me on a court holding a racquet though. Playing tennis wasn’t my thing at all.

Want more? Of course you do! Here’s the page for Grand Slam. And click here to go and visit the rest of the Hump Day Hook gang. Leave us comments about our pieces – we love it! 🙂

Happy Reading x

    Nicely done. Leaves you asking why they’re a newbie if playing tennis isn’t their thing.
