SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY: Busted in Bollywood

Another Six Sentence Sunday snippet from BUSTED IN BOLLYWOOD (releasing in less than a month, woo hoo!)

In this set up, Shari has accompanied Amrita to JFK, where her friend meets Rakesh (her arranged betrothed) for the first time. However, Shari has other motives, namely seeing her secret crush Drew.

Trying not to launch at him like a depraved fiend, I shifted my weight side to side, waiting until he stood before me, six-feet-plus of corruptibly hot English male, complete with Burberry coat and loafers.
“We meet again, Miss Jones.”
That voice. Rich and warm, like hot honey spreading through my veins and sweetening every inch of me.
I’d mentally rehearsed a thousand witty, casual remarks to demonstrate my sophistication and how my presence here meant nothing other than as support for Rita. Predictably, I couldn’t think of one as his smile sparked his eyes until all I could focus on was endless, gorgeous blue.

Check out more SSS here.

Oh, yum!

I'm biased, but I think Drew's pretty 'corruptibly hot', Liz :)

Megan Johns said...

He certainly sounds it!

Zee Monodee said...

Drew sounds totally delectable!

Btw, I just grabbed a galley off Netgalley and loving the book! Just a thought - Rakesh made me think of actor Sendhil Ramamurthy. Is this who you had in mind for him?

Loving this book, btw. It rocks! xoxo

He is in my imagination, Megan ;)

So glad you're enjoying it, Zee!

I actually wrote this book without casting characters, so didn't have anyone in mind.

Would be great if a movie producer wanted to cast it for me ;)

I loved this scene! Have finished the book Nicola and will jump on all the various sites for review!! (Check out my blog on wednesday for my review!)

Zee Monodee said...

Lol, Nicola! Would be awesome, innit, to have a director cast it for you. I so see Shari as Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif :)

Nicola Marsh said...

Woohoo! Thanks Kerrin, I'll be looking out for the review!

Nicola Marsh said...

I love how you're casting the characters, Zee, cool!

Awesome six, Nicola! I've always loved the name Drew. I look forward to seeing what you have for us next Sunday! Have a great week!
