Are You Sick Of Hearing About It Yet?

How to play:
-Read each excerpt.
-Answer each question about the previous day's excerpt.  Gather the answers and send them to next Monday the 24th and I'll pick a winner:)

Final Excerpt:

She turned her attention to her companion, and throughout the night, noticed a change in Eric. He had started by holding her rather stiff, but now, he held her tight against him, and several times placed kisses on her ears, cheeks, and even her lips. His hands skimmed over her hips and even down her backside. Maybe tonight will be the night. Elicia shivered with anticipation.

"Cold?" Eric murmured in her ear.

"No, just having a wonderful time."

"So am I, darlin', so am I."

After the last dance played, Eric asked her if she wanted to go somewhere and get dessert. Thinking she knew what he meant, she agreed, but was flabbergasted when he drove, not to his dormitory, but to the restaurant adjoining the Holiday Inn.

"They have the best cheesecake and apple pie." He pulled into a parking spot.

Confused, and a little let down, she followed him inside, and they ordered cheesecake.

Over coffee, Eric asked what was wrong.

"Oh, I guess I just read your signals wrong." She tried not to sound too disappointed. "I thought you had another form of 'dessert' in mind."

"The night's not over yet." He took her hand and looked into her eyes.

"Then..." Maybe he did get a room?

"You'll see." He paid the bill then drove her around to the back of the motel. After finding a spot to park, he reached in his pocket and pulled out a key. "Your choice." His voice sounded husky. "We can go inside and talk; we can go inside and see what develops; or we can go back to campus. Whatever you're comfortable with."

Elicia looked at him, not believing what she was hearing. She unbuckled her seat belt and slid over to him. "Eric, you sweet idiot. A lady doesn't like to be asked inside. She just wants you to take her inside."


Question #3:  What's the name of the guest who keeps pestering Elicia?

Bonus Question (Hey, it's my contest!):  What are full names of Elicia's roommates?  (Hint:  check the RBRU post)

And now Eric!! The girl really does go through the guys. I'm super duper curious to see which one she falls for. Thanks for all these intriguing excerpt. I'm not sick of hearing about your story yet at all.

LOL:) Part of my issue with getting this pubbed the 1st time was that yes, she sleeps around. But who the hell falls for and marries the first person they meet in college? Okay; it happened to my (now divorced) cousin....

I wanted to show a little realism. And then the nice editor over at TWRP informed me my series wasn't 'romance' but instead 'women's fiction'. Ta-dah!
