Six Sentence Sunday--Always a Chance

This week's six is another installment from Always a Chance, a story about Cara Reynolds and Will Jones. She's in PR and he's working with her to promote the Ultimate Sparring League. During a long weekend, Will suggests they pretend they're dating to fool his sister, who is also Cara's best friend. Though she knows so many reasons she shouldn't...she's still debating the insanity of possibly saying yes. We pick up as Will makes it clear he has a secret agenda for his proposition.

“My sister won’t leave me alone about dating lately, and I need your help to pull one over on her, so she'll get off my back.”
The smidgen of hope she’d dared to fan to life fizzled.
Of course he hadn’t been serious, and she congratulated herself for playing it cool before he’d revealed his real motive. Not at all a desperate fool, she knew if the prize looked too good to be true, it probably was. Besides, his sister was her best friend, and there could never really be anything between Will and her. If they completely lost their minds and decided to try for a relationship and things went badly, it could mean…well, she just didn’t like to think about life without Maley.

So many complications! Whatever will she do? I think Will has his own ideas! Great six, Cherie!

Great six! I liked the internal conflict. Solid reasons to hesitate, yet the part of her that yearns for something more. Can't wait to read more!

Great internal conflict! Is there foreshadowing here? :)

In six sentences, you managed to make me interested in both charaters and set up several internal conflicts. How awesome is that? Great Job.

Ooh... Great six, Cherie.
I love the best friend's brother trope, and I really enjoyed getting inside your heroine's head.
Thanks for sharing! :)
