Welcome back to Saturday Spankings! This wonderful blog hop will give you many options for filling up your Kindle. Cassie’s Influence came out last week and I cheated just a bit with a longer snippet that you can find here. My snippet today takes place shortly after that one ended.
Sue lied when she told Cassie and Annie the boys were fine with them going to the comedy club. In truth the husbands were frantically worried about the girls and neither Cassie nor Annie had a clue why Sue had pulled such a stunt. As they arrive back at the hotel, Sue tells them she will only speak to Tom and Steve. Cassie isn’t about to miss out on why Sue did what she did and she let’s Sue know.
Not only had I been drinking quite freely since about lunchtime, I was furious. I headed toward Sue, I'm not sure exactly what I'd have done, but quite probably it would not have been pretty.
"You damn well better start talking!" I yelled, Tom had actually stepped between us as I moved toward Sue. "I'll knock your damn head off!"
I caught Tom off guard and nearly got around him. I was so mad! "Cassie Jane!" he barked. "That's enough!" It was a standoff for a minute. I really did want to have a go at Sue, but I retained enough common sense to know I did not want to tangle with Tom for the privilege.
Intentionally or not, Cassie’s influence spreads. Sue’s marriage had improved through Cassie’s influence. However when Sue’s marriage unexpectedly takes a turn for the worse, Sue pushes for the solution she feels will work, a solution that could put Cassie on a collision course with the ivory brush.
Allie and Ryan are both feeling influence from Cassie and Tom. Cassie doesn't mean to lead Allie astray - but Allie sees Cassie as a role model. Every adventure, old or new, captures Allie's attention which increases her desire to be more like her mentor. But for better or worse, Ryan is just as determined to be like Tom.
The Cassie books don’t have to be read in order, but if you are ready to jump in the first four can now be found in the Cassie Box Set. It’s a great deal.
Keep on reading for more great snippets this week.
