Excerpt : 

A ship moved across the bay out to sea. I followed its lights as it moved. It was the only thing alive in the world apart from us.
Finally, he pulled me down beside him.
“You’re freezing,” he said and took off his jacket.
So many times, I’d given him a hard time about not offering me his jacket. I thought he was being an insensitive prick but now he was offering, I wished he hadn’t. I’d much rather the cocky talk than this broken Jack.
“I can’t take your jacket. We’ll share it.”
He put it around the both of us. It didn’t make a very satisfactory covering but his body so close to mine filled me with warmth.
For a long time we didn’t talk. We sat on that dock with the rough wood from the pallet scratching into our legs and our breathing in time with each other. Even without words, it felt like that wall between us had gone. I buried my face into his shoulder.
“Hannah? Are you too cold?” he asked.
“No, I’m fine. I wished I’d worn jeans instead of these tights though.”
Jack rubbed my legs, trying to warm them up.
“It’s been such a shock,” he said. “I never thought this would happen.”
I nodded.
“Do you want to walk?” Jack said. “To warm up.”
I didn’t think I could walk any more.
Instead, his arms moved around me and his lips came close. He brushed softly across my face. I could feel his breath and the harsh stubble on his face. I turned so he could kiss me. The tenderness of kiss shocked me. His tongue pressed into my mouth and I clung tighter to him. His body against mine flickered like static electricity, sparking with life. I never wanted him to let me go. He pushed me back against the pallet with his legs between mine. Then he stopped.
“I think we should move this somewhere more comfortable,” Jack said. “We’re under a mighty bright light here and I think I’ve got a splinter.”

Candy J. Starr used to be a band manager until she realised that the band she managed was so lacking in charisma that they actually sucked the charisma out of any room they played. “Screw you,” she said, leaving them to wallow in obscurity – totally forgetting that they owed her big bucks for video equipment hire.

Candy has filmed and interviewed some big names in the rock business, and a lot of small ones. She’s seen the dirty little secrets that go on in the back rooms of band venues. She’s seen the ugly side of rock and the very pretty one.

But, of course, everything she writes is fiction.
