This post is part of an ongoing blog hop hosted by Weekend Writing Warriors. Every Sunday, participating authors post eight sentences from a published work or even a WIP (work in progress). Then we hop to our fellow warriors’ blogs and check out all the fabulous fiction that’s happening! It's a great way to meet readers, writers, and your next favorite book!  :)

For the month of September, we will be reading excerpts from The Shelter Director, Jen's story in the Loving Her series.

Shy, quiet, humble – Jen is the kind of person that would give you the shirt off her back and then ask you what else you need. She may not be a movie star, but she’ll treat you like one. She works diligently to help save cats. She sacrifices her life and stability to accommodate her partner. She gives until it hurts, and her reward is a devastating diagnosis. What will her life become?

Background on the snippet: Jen and her friend, Fred, are at the ballet. Jen has just laid eyes on their principle ballerina, Liz, and she is immediately smitten.

     The tall redhead ballerina caught Jen’s attention as soon as she leaped onto the stage. Her movements were beyond graceful: they were fluid, liquid.”Wow,” Jen whispered.
     “You think she’s hot?” Fred whispered in her ear.
     Jen sat staring at the tall dancer. She didn’t answer.
     “Must be,” Fred said to himself.

I hope you liked it!
Happy reading!

Not only might she be hot, but ballerinas have to be in superb physical condition--a pointe in their favor. Love the cover, BTW!

Interesting beginning - I could really 'see' the ballerina from oyur description. Great snippet!

She sounds lovely and graceful, no wonder they're staring.
