X is for eXcitement




My A-Z Theme is based on my books, the Game On series. You won’t need to have read them to follow this story, since it’s slightly removed from the full plot, like a side story. What it will do is give you a glimpse into my characters, and a chance to get to know them a little bit, PLUS, during the story, you will get a mini tour of parts of the UK! The posts will come from two of my main characters, Leah Walker and Radleigh McCoy.  If this is your first time here, please start at the letter A. :D

X - eXcitement (Yes, I'm cheating a little! :p)
(Radleigh)


It was raining. Again. It had hardly stopped the whole time we’d been in Cornwall, and this time it had woken me up at 5am, beating against the windows. Leah was still fast asleep, cuddled into my side, her arm across my chest. 

The first time she fell asleep beside me, I didn’t think it would ever happen again, but now I got to wake up beside her every day. 

I should have known after the first time how much Leah meant to me. I never fell asleep with any woman after a one night stand. I waited for the woman to fall asleep then got the hell out of there. I didn’t want to leave Leah. That moment I realised I didn’t want to rush to get away from her after I got what I wanted was scary. Because I hadn’t got what I wanted from her. One night wasn’t enough.
Screwing around was… it was fun for a while. Leah gave me a different kind of excitement. The kind that made me want to stay around to find out where we were headed instead of looking for something else.

  1. I admit I've understood the appeal of a one night stand.

  2. After several days away at a writers conference, I am so glad to be back in my own bed next to my husband. Best thing in the world.

  3. Hi Kyra, both of us have cheated for the alphabet X....we decided it will be Xcitement. I am enjoying seeing him fall in love with Leah. The way his feelings go beyond the one-night stand.

  6. A lot of people have been cheating today, so don't worry about it! I think this turned out great. It's always great to see what Radleigh is thinking.

  7. I love being in Radleigh's head. I think it's a surprise for studly men like that when they do find the excitement of a long term relationship. :)
