It's my extreme pleasure to welcome Amie Louellen to Tattered Pages for our continuing Scorcher Blog Tour...
Intimacy and Other Things, Part III
Once again, if you are just now joining, you gotta go back for Part I
And if you missed Part II
And don’t forget to leave a comment!
Now, where were we…?
For most couples, these 12 steps take time. Our heroine may see the hero, but he doesn’t notice her for months.  Or maybe he doesn’t *let* her know that he noticed her until months later. They talk, go on dates, watch movies, eat dinner. That sort of thing.
But not Brodie and Savanna. Nope. They end up married, jumping from step 1—seeing each other—to step 12—consummation—in a matter of hours.
Shouldn’t be a problem, they went through all 12 steps at some point or another in the night. But the problems come with trust.  They don’t even know the other’s name!
Here’s a little excerpt for example—
His head was pounding, pounding, pounding.  If he never had another drink, it would be too soon.  Which was probably the most beneficial side-effect of a hangover.  Not that he drank often, just an occasional beer on the infrequent night out with the boys.  But he really needed to steer clear of the tequila if he was going to pick up blond-haired she-cats.  Hell, he couldn’t even remember her name.  She may have purred last night, but in the light of day she was all hiss and claws.
Names are easy enough to exchange. But trust is another issue entirely. But you’ll have to continue on to find out why…

A name? What's in a name? Waaaay back in my mispent youth, er, I might have spent some intimate moments/hours with a sexy stranger and the next day, hanging out with my girlfriends discussing the night before and me asking..."what was that guys name? No, really, what was his name?"
