Today for #TeaserTuesday, I am sharing a mini-excerpt of The Weekend. This story is the latest Lennox in Love Series book. Keep in mind that this excerpt is preliminary and subject to slight changes before the book release date. Enjoy!

Jessalyn found a close parking space to the door and shut off the engine.”

“Don’t take all day in there,” Davina said, but since Jessalyn had turned off the engine, she knew she wasn’t about to be as quick as she led on.

“Davina, why don’t you come inside for a minute and see the new store layout. It looks really nice.”

“Nice try, but you’re not about to have me up in there only so you can stay longer. I’ll pass.”

“I’ll only be a few minutes. There’s no need for you to be sitting in the car looking crazy, now bring your butt on here.”

“No.”

“Why not?”

“First, I don’t want to get out. We weren’t supposed to stop here, anyway. Second, every time I happen to be at the store, Corbin gawks at me like he ain’t never seen a woman in his life. Ugh…it’s highly annoying.”

“It’s not annoying. It’s cute. You know Corbin likes you,” Jessalyn gushed, raising her brows.

“No, I don’t. How would I know that? How do you know that?”

“I’ve seen him staring at you and I know you’ve seen it too.”

“I ain’t seen nothing.”

Jessalyn snickered reservedly. “Sure you haven’t.”

“Well, whatever the case, I’m not interested.”

“Davina, stop it. There ain’t a thing wrong with Corbin. He’s super cute and hardworking—you could use a good, down-to-earth man in your life. You most certainly ain’t going to find that at The Vue.”

The Vue was the local hotspot where the younger crowd gathered on the weekends to party after long work weeks. Davina had never claimed to be looking for a man there, but just to irritate her sister, she asked, “How do you know? I’m sure some fine marriages have resulted from nightclubs.”

“You mean one-night stands and accidental pregnancies.” Laughing, Jessalyn opened the car door. “Come on, Vina. This will only take a few minutes.”

“Ugh. Fine,” Davina said angrily unbuckling her seatbelt.
