I'm on the way home from the airport after a food-free flight, and all I can think about is how I'm dying for a snack. Now, the beauty of the little nosh after we've been without, is we generally can use the experience as an excuse to eat something decadent or not necessarily healthful, and love it the whole while.
It's a little like the way we hard-core, gotta'-have-it-regularly romance addicts feel when we need some HEA and don't have the time to get to all the good parts of the book we're currently reading.
What's a girl to do? How about check out some tasty Spice Briefs. They're sweet, naughty treats, just a few flirty pages of fun to fuel your desire for a quick, sexy love-story pick-me-up... or hook-me-up, like the lovely little honey of a treat that ensues in Portia DaCosta's "No Longer Forbidden ," in which high-school ten-year reunion leads a young woman back to the veddy serious young teacher she'd crushed on senior year. Takes about 30 seconds to get you some Spice Briefs love treats on your B&N e-gear, less time than it generally takes me to bust open a pack of Pop Tarts.
I'm just sayin', is all.
Another way to score a romance quickie is to follow the practice of a girlfriend of mine who always keeps an anthology in her glove box so she has something to read when the hunger is upon 'er. That way, she says she 'can sink her teeth into a little love story, tie on a happy grin, and feel smug, for instance, 'cause none of the other soccer moms know why she's feeling fortified, rearing to go and, frankly, ready to play by the time the game's over and she's on her way home to see her man for dinner.
How' bout you? How do you you fix yourself a little romance snack? Where do you read romance and get a kick out of it 'cause nobody knows you're having a way better time than they are? What little bite of romance did you last snack on? What food snack do you love to nosh while reading?
