Hot July Days Teaser : Wanting Jack

Here's a teaser for my short story Wanting Jack which will be part of the Hot July Days anthology over at Goodreads.


“You’ve got to be crazy. You do realize you could get fired? Or your ass reamed?”
“That’s what I’m hoping.”
“To get fired?”
“Nope, to get my ass reamed. Hard.” Dale laughed, sticking his booted foot in the metal stirrup and hauling himself up into the warm leather saddle. He adjusted the reins, holding his bay mare steady as he grinned down at his friend. “Hard and good.”
“You sure you want to do this?”
Dale sobered a little from the high he was climbing. “Yes. If this doesn’t make him notice me, nothing will.”
“And what if he doesn’t? In the way you want him to, that is? Then what? You leave?”
Not wanting to think that far ahead, Dale shook his head. “When he knows how much I want him…” God, this had better work, he couldn’t keep loving a man who didn’t know he existed. Dragging in a deep breath, Dale twisted a little in the saddle and tipped the brim of the white Akubra hat on his head. “Just wish me luck, okay?”
Hope this gets you interersted in poor Dale's plight to get noticed by his boss, Jack.
