She knew that voice. She’d even had a few fantasies about the man behind it. Yeah, just when she’d thought the day couldn’t get any worse, Murphy and his law stepped up and reminded her there was always room for things to deteriorate a little more.
Wishing she didn’t have to pull her gaze from his chest— stepping back from that instant of full body contact had been hard enough—she looked up, despite her embarrassment. “Hello, Mr. Carter.”
Cocoa brown eyes widened as he visibly battled to keep a straight face, alerting Megan to the fact he’d seen her chest. Well really, it was hard to miss at the best of times. What did she expect when she may as well be wearing a “hey, look at me” sign? But she had to give him credit. Even though she had the whole, wet t-shirt look going on, he didn’t sneak another peek.
“Uhh…” His mouth hung open for a moment before he cleared his throat, shook his head, and started again. “Are you here with Cody?”
Spinning Wildly is a quick read but it is not brief on plot or character development. The mother/son dynamic is well written and realistic. I laughed and was horrified for them both when the mustard splashed. I could hear every nuance in their exchanges. I felt like I was right there, along for the day’s adventure, with them. The chemistry between Mitchell and Megan is instant—and hot. I cared whether or not the two, and the two boys who they were with, began more than just a parent teacher relationship. Elle Fredrix has crafted a little jewel with Spinning Wildly. I loved every heart-gripping minute of it!
Spinning Wildly is a story that defines Murphy’s Law! Ms. Fredrix has a rare gift for taking the reader along with her so that you can hear the amusement rides, and smell the hot dogs, and feel exactly what the characters are feeling. Megan’s reaction to Mitchell, who has obviously assumed it is safe to let his interest be known now, is laugh out loud funny. I also enjoyed reading about Cody and his typical twelve-year-old reactions, especially when he points out the mustard on his mom’s t-shirt. The characters are well defined, as is the setting, making this story one to be savored. I highly recommend Spinning Wildly, and I look forward to reading more from this author.
Megan is at Wonderland on a day trip with her son Cody. Cody’s father died in a freak accident, and Megan has found herself taking on the role of mother and father. While eating a hotdog, mustard plops onto her top—right where her boob is. Her attempts at cleaning the mess results in a larger stain.
Favourite fun line: Why turn herself into a Quasimodo look-alike on top of everything else?
Megan bumps into Mitchell, a man she’s fantasised about for quite some time—a man who was once her son’s teacher. She’s thought about bumping into him, but when she did, she wished she hadn’t, especially with a yellow elbow-sized stain on her top (funny!). She’d rather have been wearing something sexy… Mitchell is at Wonderland with his nephew. Megan rushes off with Cody, but bumps into Mitchell again later…
A charming read, and funny too. How LOVELY to read something so light-hearted and fun. A great romance tale. Brilliant read.
A day out at wonderland, Canada''s premier amusement park with her son Cody looks doomed to disaster when Megan Dempsy spills mustard from a hotdog on to her chest. Her attempts to sponge it out only make her wet tee shirt cling more to her breasts, embarrassing both her and her son. However, Mitchell Carter isn't embarrassed when he meets her, and then meets her again, and again. Is he following her? I am not going to tell you the answer but this short novella is written with style. I enjoyed it a lot.
Spinning Wildly by Elle Frederix is a quick and fun dash into an intriguing romance, a romance that is far less simple than it sounds.
Cosmic payback in the form of a blob of mustard has to be the most original description and conveys with it (who would have guessed) a wealth of emotion, that no matter how improbable it sounds, the reader will empathize with this main character. We've all been in Mrs.Dempsey's shoes at one time or another. This story wastes no time, but leaps from minor personal embarrassment right to the fantasy man, leaving poor Mrs. D filled with the desperate desire to suffer short term memory loss. This short story is frank and funny light and a definitely twisty storyline. Romance becomes as much a spinning vortex as ever one finds in an amusement park ride. Climb on for spin!
Although Megan Dempsey hates amusement parks, she hates disappointing her 12-year old son even more. So when his plans with a friend fall through, he ropes her into going along. Things go downhill from there. First, an incident with a mustard-oozing hotdog paints her breast golden. Then running into-literally-Mitchell Carter, a man who has stirred her emotions for more than year, mortifies her even more. When their paths repeatedly cross, she recognizes interest in Mitch's gaze. Megan's day is about to get a whole lot better!
