I’m continuing my participation in the Goodreads blog hopping experience. With that in mind, this is a continuation of my book, "Girlfriends." This excerpt comes from Chapter 7. See excerpts from other authors at http://boomerlitfriday.blogspot.com
Constance was the new civil litigator at Burns and Burns, specializing in personal injury and medical malpractice. She was 32 and a slender 5’8” with silky black hair and alabaster skin. Her cavernous black eyes and innocent face belied the pit bull that she was. Everything about her was appealing. From her long, soft eyelashes that swept her skin below the bottom lid to her slender fingers that sported a delicate gold ring on her pinky, Bill was smitten the first time he met her. He invited her to lunch and offered himself as her personal go-to-person. She found occasions to “go-to” him often.
Bill was flattered. He began to work out even more vigorously and when they went out together, people would smile and look on with envy. He liked the idea of having this young thing on his arm and was possessive of her attentions. She liked the idea of having a relationship with a partner in the firm.
They spent romantic evenings at fashionable restaurants, not caring who saw them together, or drinking fine wine by the fire at Bill’s. His “latter life” crisis was unlike the Bill everyone knew.
