Six Sentence Sunday--Who's The Cake Boss

Although previously I've posted excerpts from my short story soon-to-be released by TWRP, Into the Fire, this week, I'm posting from my current WIP, Who's the Cake Boss.  Hope you like.

Set up:  Lindsey used to work with Evan as an apprentice baker, but he let her go after a month because she had a tendency to make a mess of things.  Truth--Evan thought she was too good for him, and Lindsey's attraction to Evan made her nervous.  Now they are competing against each other on a televised cake competition, but Lindsey says something that jars Evan's memory about the time he overheard her telling a fellow employee she'd never had an orgasm.  Without further ado:

Every time he worked with her from that point on, images of teaching her--but most definitely not about cakes--kept distracting him.  Instead, he wanted to show her just how good sex could be, with the right person--with him.

But he hadn't made a move except to push her away--far away.  He'd fired her.  He hadn't wanted to be the one to corrupt her.  She deserved better.

For those new to Six Sentence Sunday, it's simple:

1) pick a project – a current Work in Progress, contracted work or even something readers can buy if you’re published

2) pick six sentences

3) post 'em on Sunday

It would be hard to bake a cake when your mind isn't on the prize...or maybe it was.

Terrific six! I wonder what the cake ended looking like?

Seems like deep down inside he's sweet. :) After only 6 sentences I'm already hoping they get together. Nice 6!

See, there are those silly ideas about pleasure for a woman equating corruption. Hope Evan gets past his hangups.

Great six!
