B is for British Girl

My plan for the A - Z Challenge is to write every post as if it were a diary entry by a character from my WIP. Today's post comes from Radleigh McCoy.

** 

I really thought Bailey had learned his lesson about hiring pretty girls. Sooner or later, they will end up in my bed, and then he has to start all over again, finding someone new once they get fired for breaking the rules. Must be exhausting.

The latest one arrived today. She's British, which right away, makes her interesting. I've slept with British girls before, and they're usually kinda ... reserved. Not this one. She's got fire in her eyes. She's tiny, only a little over five feet, I'd say. And smart. She didn't crumble like all the others when I spouted all the usual lines that make women forget their morals and drop their panties, so I guess she earned my respect. I'm not fooled though, I've never met a woman I couldn't charm. They're all the same, really. Throw around some compliments, flash the cash, wine them, dine them. They lap it up. Then, when it's all over, they get to make some extra cash by selling their story to the highest bidder. Sex for me, money for them. It's a win-win.

British girl has more class than to go running to the papers. I can tell. But the rest of the story will be the same. I guarantee it.

  5. Haha love it. As a British girl myself, I highly doubt I'd fall for the charms of this snake! Would love to read more of his cheeky antics, though :)

  6. Yeah this sounds like a few guys I know from the bar job I use to work. Especially this one guy who was my bartender. There actually became a rule that co-workers couldn't sleep with him. I was one of the few he couldn't charm LMAO

  17. What a cocky dude! But I must admit I want to keep reading, if for nothing than to find out how the cool British girl sets him straight:)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh man. I don't like this guy! I think the British girl will teach him a thing or two. LOL. Great job!

    ReplyDelete

  20. Sounds like my hubby.

    Haha! I'm totally kidding! He'd kill me if he knew I said that, lol.

  21. Holy hell! This was amazing. I loved the insight into Radleigh's mind. He is such a misogynistic arse. You've got an excellent voice for him.

  22. Such a creative idea for A-Z challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow! What a complete and utter tosser!

    I actually read it and thought to myself this guy sounds like a complete tool.

    I think I'm starting to like your story a little too much. Which suprises me and worries me, being a guy and all. >_<

    Bring on C!

  24. Wow, what a creep. I bet he's fascinating.

    Hoping the Brit gives him a run for his money...or a swift kick in the behind.

    Happy Monday! Looking forward to more!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ha! Us British girls are all the same ;-) You can always tell we're Brits because we drink a lot of tea. LOL. Hope she gives Radleigh the run-around (sounds like he needs it)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow. I sure hope that British gal puts him in his place.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ooh interesting! I bet his attitude gets him in some trouble

  28. "Sooner or later, they will end up in my bed..."

  44. The narrator sounds like a character that one would love to hate but he sounds so authentic, not overdone. Great job! I was sad to see the end of the post. It was getting really good.
