Hello, all! This week’s #TeaserTuesday is a snippet of our dynamic duo Dex and Sloane, from Tried & True, the final book in the THIRDS main series which is out November 24th. Happy reading!
Sloane straightened, his heart pounding. “What is it? Did you find the agent?”
“No, but I found something even better. Dude, Mrs. Bauman’s into BDSM.”
“What?” Sloane let out a breath he hadn’t even realized he’d been holding.
“Mrs. Bauman. She has an entire closet full of leather stuff, paddles, whips….”
“Why are you searching Mrs. Bauman’s closet?”
“For our guy, or girl, agent.”
“And a highly skilled enemy agent is going to be hiding in Mrs. Bauman’s closet?” Maybe they were taking a page out of Dex’s book. Dexter J. Daley’s 101 Places to Hide If You Want to Get Caught. Number 1. Bedroom Closet. Sloane let out a snort at the memory of a naked Dex hiding from Ash in the bedroom closet back when they’d thought they were being sneaky about their relationship. Of course the closet was the first place Ash looked.
Dex let out a bark of laughter. “Oh my God!”
“What now?” Sloane was going to strangle him.
“Mrs. Bauman has a strap-on.”
“I did not need to know that.”
“Ooh yeah, get your freak on, Mrs. Bauman. Just goes to show you, you’re never too old to get jiggy with it. Man, I hope we’re this adventurous when we get to her age. We’re probably going to need a little something-something to help with the, uh, you know, gravity, but we can make it work. Shit. What if Mrs. Bauman is the agent?”
“Think about it, Sloane. She always happens to pop up when I’m either compromised or half-naked.”
“I think that says more about you than it does our elderly neighbor.”
“I bet her walking that tiny prehistoric dog—which I’m convinced is some kind of wingless pterodactyl—is her doing surveillance. She’s probably got all kinds of explosives hidden in her housedress. Have you seen how ginormous the pockets are?”
“Am I, Sloane? Am I really?”
“Fine, but when she springs out at you like the wrinkly ninja she is and tries to strangle you with her hairnet, don’t say I didn’t warn you. I bet those rollers are actually grenades.”
