Hump Day Hook #6


Did you hear the news?  Kenzie's Class Reunion released yesterday, ahead of schedule!  Get your copy HERE, unless you'd prefer to wait for the Kindle or Nook version.  They'll probably be up next week
So head over to her BLOG and enter her Reunion Contest!  Two people have already won; you could be next!







Ready for today's hook?   Thought I'd treat you to some more of Lynne and her roommates from Love Is Color Blind.  Still working on this one.  Enjoy!

“What do you mean about us being opposites?  Besides the obvious, I mean.”

Tara dropped down on the floor.  “Well, he likes to party and you don’t;  I’ll give you the athletic ability, since dancing takes a lot out of you; you’re black and he’s white; and I think you’re a better student-”

“Hold it.”  Lynne sat up, whacking her head on the support bar.  “Ouch!  I always forget that’s there.  What do you mean, he’s white?”

Susan turned down the music.  “I just figured he was a mix.  You know, black father, white mother.  He’s always had a gorgeous tan.”

Tara looked puzzled.  “He looks Caucasian to me.  And besides, who cares?  There are a lot of black guys who date white girls.  Kudos to you for evening up the score.”

“He’s well spoken when he wants, but he also slips into that ghetto-dialect once in a while.  Guess I didn’t really pay that close of attention when Nick and I were together.  And he doesn’t have any pictures of his parents.  Maybe I should ask him tomorrow.”

“Does it really matter?  Say you find out he’s adopted or something, and has white parents.  Or one of his parents is black.  Or he’s a white boy adopted by black parents.  Would you stop having feelings for him if you find out his heritage?”  Susan sat down in her desk chair.

Lynne frowned.  “No, but if he’s white, my mama’ll have a fit.”

Go Here for more Hump Day Madness:)
