Wasting Time

Buy Living is Overrated HERE!

by Olivia Starke

There’s nothing quite like staring over a field of pure white, untouched and unmarred by human hands. And I’m not talking about a fresh layer of powdery stuff on some Rocky Mountain snowcapped tip—I’m talking about that blank document sheet in your Word program. Both friend and beast, it promises literary genius or a descent into madness—depending on the mood of your Muse and Writing Drones.

Today, madness is on the menu, for me anyway. After spending several “constructive” hours on Cracked this morning, getting the blogging juices flowing, I’ve found myself staring out the front door. What wonderful scene greets my curious eyes? You ask. The side of my pickup truck. Yup, that’s it. To my credit, the rain has cleared and birds are singing beautifully right now. And tree frogs, which means more rain to us simple country folk.

Truth be known it’s taken me nearly two hours today to come up with this little blip of brilliance, which I guess could be a testament to my determination to finish this post. Despite the multitude of reasons I’ve found to avoid doing so, including washing the dishes.
What are some of the ways you avoid finishing blogs/edits/WIPs? Leave a comment with email to enter to win a free e-copy of the last tale in my Zombies In Vegas trilogy, Living Is Overrated.

Sex is better when you’re one of the undead.

When her luggage is stolen at the Las Vegas airport, Kelly finds herself stranded and broke. Lucky for her, sexy Detective Nick Rodriguez offers her a room for the night. And when he whips out the handcuffs, she is ready to offer gratitude for his hospitality all night long.

Of course, when in Vegas the party doesn’t stop even if someone wakes up dead….


Her sultry smile encouraged him. “And what kind of woman do you think I am?”

His fingers moved to the fly of his jeans. “One that can handle whatever I give you.”

She arched her back, sucking her bottom lip between her teeth, a long moan slipping from her throat. He held her gaze while he undid the fly of his jeans and shoved the denim down. Her eyebrow quirked as his hard cock sprang free.


He shrugged. “Laundry day.”

“Oh, I’m not complaining.”

He jerked the T-shirt over his head, before taking her in from head to toe. Her curves left little to the imagination despite a modest T-shirt and jeans. He licked his lips, ready to get his mouth on every inch of her body. His planning had been off. Having her tied to the bed made it impossible to get the shirt over her head.

Fuck it. Never a man to give in to defeat, he crawled over her and claimed a nipple between his teeth. Kelly bucked into him, her cry of pleasure urging him on. Palming the other breast, he squeezed it. He ground his hips into her, slipping his hands beneath her top to savor the cool satin of her stomach. Needing more, he shoved the shirt over her breasts, and with a growl of frustration, grabbed the delicate lace of her bra and yanked. The cups ripped, her breasts spilling out to his greedy mouth.

“Please, Nick, oh God….”

Nick pushed away, straddling her. “Fuck me, I’m going to come before this even starts.” It’d been several months since his last relationship, and his balls had drawn tight, ready to blow.
Her eyes widened, studying his every move. “Are you going to torture me and not let me play?”
He circled his girth with his hand, stroking down the length and back up again. Her eyes glowed in the low lighting, and her pale hair fanned around her head like a halo. His personal angel, if angels could be nymphomaniacs.

“We have all night. Plus, I kind of enjoy watching you squirm.”

She bit her bottom lip until it turned red and plump between her teeth.
