The Last Ship continues with its excellence. The tough love from Captain Meylan and Master Chief is something Chandler needed. I loved the twisty twist of "Hello, Fletch". I'm very interested in seeing what he does. Can't wait for tonight's episode.
Teen Wolf continues bringing old faces back and I'm so happy! At this point, I'm ready for the guidance counselor to die already. Truly, I pretty much hate her. Gerard is a love to hate character, but the counselor… not so much. She's just annoyingly irritating.
I got started on The Defenders and quite like it so far. The way the four main characters are coming together is pretty terrific and the snark is spot on. Should get at least one more episode in today.
Also started season seven of Hawaii Five-0. I'm enjoying the episodes so far. Not sure I'll be down with a season eight without Chin and Kono so this might be my last season.
I'll be starting the British show Fearless soon. Can't wait to watch Jamie Bamber on my screen again. Which means… I'll probably be binge watching the BSG marathon on Syfy next weekend. LOL
Oh! Terrific news. Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries is going super-sized and coming to the big screen. The crowdsourcing campaign reached its initial goal within forty-eight hours and the funds are still rolling in. Can't wait to see what the movie brings.
That's it for television this week. Tonight's post is from All Bets Off, a sexy short where the main characters face their attraction and navigate through a pile of baggage to examine how they feel.
Here's the mini-blurb:
Kellen Bairds and Pierce Abbotson make friendly wagers on a regular basis until Kellen won't admit Pierce won their latest round. When he calls her on the lie, she gets angry because no amount of money on earth will make her reveal how kinky her dreams are. Or her feelings for him.
And a snippety peek…
Pierce dropped down beside Barret, which put him across from Kellen. He flashed a quick smile and she returned it. The entire after-party idea came from her and he'd balked at first, but the events brought the crew together and profits rose because of their camaraderie.
Nice for his bank account not to mention helping restore his faith in humanity.
No small feat.
But something about her remained elusive. She engaged with the other but also held back. It made him a little crazy sometimes.
Barret nudged Pierce's shoulder. "Wanna go first, boss?" He waggled his eyebrows for good measure.
Pierce shook his head. "I'll go last. Executive privilege." He chuckled when a chorus of groans greeting his pronouncement.
Truth told, he had an edgy feeling about the night and wanted to go last to see if he could pinpoint the reason.
An hour later, by the end of the first round, he hadn't managed to figure it out.
Winnie turned her shot glass over. "I'm out, guys. Barret's gonna fall over if one of us can't walk back home." She slid her chair out and waited a moment before standing.
Barret had seven glasses lined up in front of him. His propensity for telling tall tales taking him out of the game in the first round. Pierce helped Winnie get him out the door and relocked it behind them. Luckily, they lived the closest to the bar, one street over and a block up.
When Pierce returned to the table, Kinley snorted. "Think those two will ever hook up?"
Kellen lifted a shoulder. "Let's let them figure it out. Barret's not ready to be a one-woman man just yet."
Pierce quirked a brow. "Speaking from personal experience?"
Kellen pinned him with her gaze. "Is that an official question?" Her lips twisted in a sly smirk.
Pierce shrugged. "Sure, why not?"
Her mouth widened into a grin. "Drink up, boss man." The implication being she'd never hooked up with Barret.
Pierce narrowed his gaze. "You're sure?" She dead-eyed him and he picked up the shot.
Yeah, no hooking up with Barret for Kellen.
He downed the liquor. "Next question."
I thoroughly enjoy watching my characters dance around feelings and then get all tangled up in their emotions. So much fun to write.
That's it for this week. Happy reading.
