So one of our fellow JM fam is writing and ADULT novel… not 50 shades of Grey like, but more “Chick-Flick” in written form. It’s titled “City Love” and she’s posted a few chapters of her rough draft on her tumblr. If you want, check it out and shoot her some feedback and see if you can spot the throwbacks to JM here and there!
Disclaimer: Although what she posted is not very graphic (as it is just the first few chapters), I still DO NOT reccommend that any young/ minor (Under 18) read it since the content is marked Adult. Also, it is definitely NSFW.
Here is a PG preview below, the rest can be found on her tumblr MyRunningChanges:
Jason Baxter thinks he has it made. He’s the top talent agent in New York City, and has an amazingly successful and beautiful Fiancée. That’s why it is so hard for him to figure out how he ended up in a bar downing shots of whiskey on the most important day of his life.
Even after his fifth shot, he still can’t believe what he said to her. In his mind, Emily is still the perfect woman, beautiful, smart, and amazing in bed. He’s never done cocaine before, but if he ever had, he imagines that it would be something like making love to Emily. He can’t get enough, with her, it is the kind of lovemaking that takes hours. When you start the sun is shining high above and by the time you get up for a glass of water, it is dark out and the streetlights are on. It is the kind of love where he doesn’t mind spending all day in bed. Usually, he is the first one to get up and start getting dressed again. Now, he only hopes to eventually know that kind of love he experienced with Emily, or so he thought.
Audrey Parker is a 24 year-old “up and coming” columnist. This should be the best time in her career. She’s barely out of college and her advice column is already one of the most popular read articles in the city. In only 6 months, Audrey has turned a dying column into a household name. In fact, that’s what happened to the last advice columnist to the New York Review, she died. No one had been able to revive her success until Audrey came into the picture. But something is missing, Audrey wants more out of her career, she wants to write about more than relationships and lack thereof. To be syndicated across the United States, writing pieces about politics and natural disasters. In the midst of focusing on her dreams, she has forgotten about herself all together.
From the moment these two people meet it is clear that each of them can gain success and find what they are looking for by getting help from the other. Their road is bumpy and no one knows how long the two will last as friends before their true underlying desires take hold.
