#DD – Excerpt from Sandy Sullivan


Marla isn’t looking for love or anything else from a man.

After her ex left her for a much younger woman, she decide’s she is done with the opposite sex. Her B.O.B can take care of her needs just fine thank you very much. Until the day she runs into Chris Nelson, hot cowboy extraordinaire at the local honky-tonk during her daughter’s bachelorette party. Feeling a little tipsy or a whole lot drunk, Marla’s tongue gets away from her to the point she tells Chris the torrid details of her marriage breakup only to be embarrassed enough to run.

Chris Nelson needs a quick fuck and the gorgeous cougar sitting in the bar booth is the ticket. Getting her alone seemed like a good idea to the point the quick ride in the front seat of his truck, blows his mind. When Marla passes out, he feels obligated to take care of her until she’s sober enough to drive herself home.

Little do either of them know, their paths will cross again in the most unlikely place. Can Marla put aside her distrust of men, especially for a younger man? Can Chris convince her he’s not like other guys and does he even want to?



Music blared from the speakers near the front of the stage from the CD continuing to play. The band had taken a break between sets and Marla Listril squeezed her eyes shut for a moment, hoping the pounding in her head would take a break too.

“What’s wrong, Mom?”

Blonde, blue-eyed and beautiful, her daughter Andrea lit up a room when she entered and tonight was no exception. Unfortunately for those giving her the eye, disappointment would follow, for tonight her baby celebrated her last few days of singledom. Four days from now, she would marry the love of her life.

“Nothing, sweetheart. I have a bit of a headache is all. I had to put up with your father today, remember?”

“Sorry. I hoped he might be easier to deal with since I threatened his life if he didn’t behave at the wedding. Sometimes, I don’t know how you put up with him for twenty years.”

“I know, but he takes every opportunity to throw the new Mrs. Paul in my face. It wasn’t enough he left me for a younger woman.” She glanced to her left, noting the milling people moving from the bar to the tables. “Did you know she’s pregnant?”

“Shit! Seriously?” Andrea asked, shock clear on her face.

“So I’ve heard. We aren’t going to dwell on your father.” She tucked a stray curl behind Andrea’s ear and smiled. “Tonight is for you, honey. I know your friends will be here soon and when they arrive, I’ll take my leave.”

“You know you don’t have to go. I’d love having my mother party with me.”

“No one wants to party with their mother and besides, I know most of your friends’ mothers and they won’t want to get drunk and act stupid in front of me.”

“Probably true. For now have a drink, Mom. You deserve it and I’m sure it’ll help your headache a bit if you loosen up.”

Andrea signaled for the waiter and as he stopped at their table, Marla couldn’t help noticing the broad shoulders, chiseled chest, trim waist and nice ass when he turned back toward the bar with their drink order. Country music wasn’t her thing, but she sure liked the view of the cowboys hanging around the bar. There’s just something intriguing about a firm butt in a pair of jeans.
