The Page 69 test...............


I read on Rhonda Pollero's website about this TEST. Read page 69 of any book and it should tell you if you want to read the rest of the book or not..... Hmm. So I spent most of my day reading page 69 in about a million books!! Most of the time?? True.

So I thought I'd post page 69 of MORE THAN FIENDS
and let you guys be the judges!! Let me know what you think!


“Thanks,” he said as he followed me into the kitchen. “It does help.”
“Look,” I told him, pulling an extra coffee cup out of the cupboard and filling it for him, “I’m willing to work this out, because I’m a fabulous human being, but I’m only going to listen to you being mad for so long.”
“About sixteen years?” he asked, a reluctant smile curving one corner of his mouth.
“Ha-ha,” I said and handed him his coffee. “One more time, Logan. I was a kid. And pregnant, okay?”
He leaned back against the counter, holding the cup between his palms. “If I’d known, it would have been different,” he said. “Cassie, you wrote to me all that year and you never even mentioned it.”
“Uh-huh,” I said, taking a huge gulp of coffee, “like you never mentioned that you were dating Skippy.”
“Misty.”
“Whatever.” I set my cup down, walked to the service porch and Logan was only a step or two behind me. While I stuffed a load of towels—Thea used two for every shower, one for her hair, one for her body and took two showers a day, you do the math—Logan leaned against the dryer, watching me.
To be honest, he gave good stare.
He made me so jumpy, I dumped enough soap in to wash five loads and hoped that wouldn’t come back to bite me in the ass. Then I slammed the lid and looked up at him. Well over six feet, it took awhile to lift my gaze all the way to his eyes, but it was worth the trip.
“What do you want from me, Logan?”
He blew out a breath, crossed his feet at the ankle and said, “Another shot.”
“At what?”
“You.”
Whoa Baby!

    Whoa, Baby is right!!! Fabulous little excerpt, Maureen!!

    I've had a sneak peek, too, but I still can't wait to get my hands on the shiny candy-apple-red version and read it all over again!

    Thanks, Kate!! and to be fair, her 'sneak peek' included me shrieking and begging her to read chapters to make sure everything was clicking!!

    Which is why the shiny candy apple book is dedicated to KATE....

    I can't wait to read it. The excerpt was an excellent tease and I can't wait to read any of your books. I've been addicted since book 1
