Chris Collins is the hottest guy in the neighborhood. The girls who go to school with him think so, and even their mothers agree. When Chris flirts with Mrs. Brock one night at a restaurant, she's flattered but knows it's nothing serious. But when Mrs. Brock's emotionally distant and boring husband jokingly urges her to get a boyfriend, she takes it seriously, and the older lady pursues the younger man.

This 12,000+ word novelette contains adult situations and is intended for adults 18 and older.

Congratulations on your latest book!

Please keep in mind that KindleBoards is a Reader and Kindle Fan forum. As such, self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed in the Book Bazaar. (You haven't done anything wrong, just our standard reminder. :))

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then. You may modify the latest post to reflect new information.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum:,36.0.html. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Oh, and one more thing: be sure to check out the index threads at the top of the Book Bazaar. . . .there are details there about how you can be listed so that our readers can find you.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

It was getting close to nine o'clock, the time the ladies usually wrapped up their outing if it was on a weeknight. They bickered about who would pick up the check. Nancy insisted that she pay it.

The waitress who was serving them was a cute girl, probably within a year or so of Chris's age.

"I bet that's his type," Nancy said.

"Too tan, ditzy and big boobs?" Jean whispered.

"What makes you think she's ditzy?" Marla asked.

Jean took a sip of water. "The big boobs."

Nancy sat up straight and threw her shoulders back. "You're just saying that because you don't have them."

All three ladies laughed and Marla said, "I guess I'm in the middle. Just…average."

"Oh, here we go." Nancy laid the sarcasm on thick.

"What do you mean?"

"You're always talking yourself down," Jean said. "You're the prettiest of all three of us."

"Thanks!" Nancy said, a bit too loudly. She turned the volume down a bit. "But it's true."

"In fact," Jean said, "if any of us could have gotten a guy like our young bartender over there, it would have been you."

"Oh, stop it," Marla said. "You're both-we're all-beautiful people. And not just on the outside."

"I love a good pep talk," Nancy said.

The ladies made their way outside, talked for a couple of minutes in the parking lot, kissed cheeks all around, and got in their cars.

On the drive home, Marla thought about what Jean had said: If any of us could have gotten a guy like our young bartender over there, it would have been you.

She wasn't sure that was true. What stood out to her, though, was Jean's use of the past tense. She felt a little old right then, like the game had passed her by.
