Teaser from Samantha Towle's "Trouble."

Samantha Towle has been very quiet on the FB front lately and that's because she's been busy writing Jordan and Mia's story in "Trouble." Want a teaser? It's your lucky day because Samantha Towle is feeling particularly generous!!!

Enjoy x

I thought it was about time I gave you a TEASER of TROUBLE, as I've been pretty quiet about it, since I started rewriting it! It's taken me an age to pick a scene, and this is the only one which doesn't give away any spoilers! This scene is from Jordan's POV, and Mia and Jordan are collecting his dog Dozer from the vets.

It's not smexy, but there is cussing, so I'm put the "18+ WARNING" on just in case, and of course it's unedited, subject to change, etc.

I make my way back over to Mia, where Dozer is still making doe eyes at her.
Even my dog is crazy about her.
Not that I’m crazy about her. No fucking way. Absolutely not. Never. Ever.
“Ready?” I reach down for Dozer’s lead.
Turning his head, he knocks my hand away with that huge cone he’s wearing, and puts his lead in his mouth and holds it out for Mia to take.
Nice Dozer, blowing me off for a chick. I think he forgets who feeds him.
Not that I can blame him though. I’d do the same. I’d let her lead me around all day long if she asked – only if I got a pay day at the end of it of course.
Taking the lead from his mouth, she rubs his head.
She gazes up at me, a smile pushing the corner of her mouth. “Is it okay with you if I walk him out to your car?”
“Doesn’t look like you’ve got much of a choice.” I grin in the direction of Dozer’s wagging tail. “I think you’ve got an admirer.”
She giggles. It’s one of the sexist sounds I’ve ever heard.
“Well Dozer wouldn’t be a bad admirer to have, but I reckon I’m just a new face to get some attention from—not that I imagine you ever struggle for attention,” she says to Dozer. “Handsome boy that you are…aren’t you…yes, you are.” She smooshes his face in her hands, and I actually find myself jealous of my dog.
I’m jealous of my dog.
I really need to get laid.
“Let’s go.” I shove my hands in my pockets, and head for the door and out to my car.
I help Dozer in the back seat. Turning, I find Mia hovering behind me, as he settles himself.
“Should I sit in the back with him?” she asks, biting her lip.
Jesus, I want to bite that lip. Lick it. Suck it. Fuck it.
I see Dozer’s head lift, and ears prick up. “Nah, he’ll be fine. You’ll have more room up front here next to me.”
“Okay…if you’re sure.”
I see Dozer’s head drop on a grunt.
I hold back the smile I feel, as I watch Mia walk around the car and climb in. But as I’m getting in the car, I can’t resist giving Dozer a smug grin.
Honestly, the look he’s giving me right now – I reckon if he could flip me off, he would.
Yep, you lost that round, Dozer.
I turn the ignition, feeling pretty satisfied with myself that I’ve got Mia sitting up front with me…then it hits me.
I was just in a pissing contest with my dog.
There are no words.
No. Fucking. Words.
