DescriptionThe Perfect Score Tournament is coming to the small town of Espejo, Texas. The biggest bowling tournament in the state is going to change the lives of three friends.
What they find is more than a 300 game.
One Night Stand
Babs Loomis is a bitter woman. Her husband left her after five years because they couldn’t have children and he didn’t want a woman that was barren. She is a chain smoker, and a drinker, intent on getting as much pleasure as she can out of life. She bowls for company – Veronica and Marlene are her closest friends. When she runs into Jimmy Tanaka at the tournament, a former friend of her ex-husband’s, her bitterness turns into something completely different and totally unexpected.
Can Babs overcome her own ghosts and find more than a one night stand?
Veronica Avery needs to get laid. It’s been five years since her husband died in a car accident and she’s lonely and tired of trying to meet men that end up with a big “L” on their forehead. When she joins The Perfect Score bowling tournament, her modest hopes are pinned on meeting a man she might feel comfortable going to bed with.
She’s not expecting to meet Patrice Goldman, a woman that inspires feelings of passion and longing in her cobwebby heart. Afraid and confused, Veronica tries to deny her growing feelings for the auburn haired woman, but fate has other things in mind for the woman in black. It’s time to shed her widow’s weeds and live again.
Marlene is a big girl and has always been a big girl, but she’s a kick-ass bowler, determined to finally hit that 300 game. The Perfect Score tournament at the Starlite Bowling Alley is her chance to show the world that she’s worth something more than just a quick lay.
When she meets Buck Miller at the tournament, she falls instantly in lust. When their fabulous sex turns into a relationship, Marlene runs like a scared rabbit. Will Buck give up his goal of a perfect game to convince the woman of his dreams that he loves her? Or will Marlene’s stubbornness ruin her chances at a 300 game and a man of her own?

Excerpt:Buck came out of the pharmacy with a larger bag than Marlene expected to see. He obviously bought more than a box of condoms. A yip of excitement jumped around inside her. Thank God it was dark, or he’d likely see a wet spot from her pussy on the seat and her nipples so damn tight they hurt.
“Did you get everything you needed?” Marlene was more than curious.
“And then some.”
His jaw was tight, and she wondered what had happened in the store. His playful mood wasn’t gone, but something had definitely dampened it.
Instead of answering her, he threw the bag in the backseat, and grabbed the back of her head. The kiss was like a branding. Hot, hard, and full of fire. He opened his mouth and Marlene moaned low and deep.
Not here, not here.
She pulled her mouth away with effort. “Let’s get going before we get arrested.”
Buck’s breath was coming in spurts. “Yeah, you’re right. Let’s go.”
He left the parking lot as quickly as he’d pulled in, and within ten minutes, they were at the motel. In the gloom of the parking lot, Buck’s face was a study in shadows.
“Are you ready?”
He wasn’t asking her if she was ready to get out of the truck. He was asking her if she was ready for everything. For a night of naked sex and whatever else they wanted to do. The freedom to simply be and do without restraint or apologies.
“I’m more than ready. Let’s go, cowboy.”
They made it into the motel room without touching. That was a miracle. Marlene stuck her hands on her pockets to keep them from touching his perfect ass when he was unlocking the door. She brushed past him through the doorway, and he groaned just a little. The plastic bag shook in his hand.
He flicked the switch, and a small lamp in the corner of the room came on, lending a golden glow to the room. It had one king bed, a TV, dresser, nightstand, and a guitar. Marlene’s eyes widened at the guitar, but when she turned to look at him and ask, she changed her mind.
He closed and locked the door without looking. His gaze locked on hers.
“Your wish, mistress?”
His voice sent shivers up and down her spine. She eyed the bag in his hand.
“Show me what you bought.”
He opened the bag, took out a box of ribbed condoms, and tossed it on the bed. Then he pulled out another box of different condoms and, with a wicked grin, tossed them on the bed, too. Next was a bottle of massage oil and a heated look at her breasts. Marlene couldn’t stop the tingles of excitement.
Last, he pulled out a can of whipped cream and bottle of chocolate syrup. A huge throb of arousal thumped through her. The thought of licking anything off him, or him licking her, was enough to make her very wet. Her pussy howled with hunger.
“Anything else in your magic bag?”
He shook his head. “No, but I do have something else to show you. Whenever you’re ready.”
Marlene had to hold herself back. They had all night. No reason to rush.
“Okay, first thing I’d like is for you to strip.”
Without another word, Buck started taking his clothes off. Marlene was more than astonished, she was amazed. She wasn’t sure Buck would want to go through with the whole love slave thing, yet here he was, doing as she asked.
Light sandy-brown whorls of hair, a few scars, and nicely defined muscles graced his tanned chest. Yes, Buck was definitely a working man. His shoulders looked like they could hold the world. The nice trail of hair led from his belly button down. His boots came off with a little effort, then he unbuttoned his jeans and slid them down his hips.
His marvelous erection strained against the black boxers he wore. Marlene hadn’t forgotten the nice size of his package. She couldn’t help but stare and drool. Buck was incredible-looking.
Before she could say another word, his boxers were off and he stood there deliciously naked, like a flesh feast laid out for Marlene’s consumption.
“Holy shit.” It popped out of her mouth before she could stop it.
Buck grinned. “I’m glad you approve.”
“Jesus, Buck, I don’t approve. I applaud and bow at your feet.”
Marlene stepped toward him, and he held up one hand to stop her. “Now remember, I am your love slave. I live to serve you. Tell me what to do, mistress.”
Her heart was pounding, her blood was flowing, and she itched to touch him, but he was right. He agreed to be her love slave, and Marlene wanted to live out every fantasy she’d ever had. Even if it took days.
“Thank God.” He intoned as his large hands reached for her. Gently, he pulled up her shirt, kissing each inch of skin he revealed. He licked and nibbled his way up to her breasts, and as her shirt stuck over her face, he bit her nipple. Hard.
“Couldn’t help myself.” He kissed the abused nipple, then pulled her shirt all the way off.
Buck’s chest lightly touched hers as he reached behind her to unfasten her bra. His hair tickled her skin, prompting her shivers to have shivers. He slid the straps off her shoulders slowly, licking his way down until he reached her nipples. One little lick for each, and then he stepped back with a grin.
Marlene ached so badly she needed more. “Suck them.”
Buck dropped to his knees and proceeded to give her the tongue bath of her life. His talented mouth licked, suckled, and nibbled each nipple in turn. Marlene was amazed to feel herself close to having an orgasm. She touched his hair, surprised to find it so soft and silky.
“Okay, now take off the rest of my clothes.” When she said it, it nearly hurt, but she needed more.
He unsnapped her pants, then slid them and her panties down to her knees. He stuck his nose between her legs and licked her inner thighs.
“You smell good. Hot and musky.”
Yep, she sure was. Hornier than she’d ever been in her life.
After pulling off her jeans and panties, he led her over to the bed and sat her down to remove her shoes and pull everything completely off. Then he knelt in front of her.
“I want to taste you.”
Oh God, oh God.
“Far be it from me to make you unhappy. You may taste me.”
It sounded stupid, but it also sounded right.
Buck moved closer and spread her knees. Marlene felt exposed and resisted his touch without even realizing it.
“It’s okay, Lee. I won’t hurt you.” Buck’s eyes were full of honesty even as his pupils were wide with desire.
Marlene relaxed her muscles and allowed herself to let go. Since this would be the most sensual night of her life, she wanted to enjoy it to its fullest. Buck ran his hands up and down her thighs, and the sensation was exactly what she imagined it to be. Rough against soft.
He bent down and blew into her curls. The heated flesh shivered against the cool breath. His thumbs parted her pussy lips and he licked her slowly from side to side, then top to bottom, leaving no inch of flesh untouched.
“Oh, baby, I was right. Sweet.”
Marlene lay back on the bed and her hands crept to her breasts, where she started pinching her nipples to Buck’s tongue laps. Lick. Pinch. Lick. Pinch. Oh, God, it was incredible. The sensations shooting through her were enough to feed her fantasies for years. For the first time in her life, a man licked Marlene’s pussy, and she loved it.

Submitted By: sarahd on Jan 9, 2014I had trouble staying interested in this book. I'm not really sure why.
Submitted By: duchessbee on Jan 4, 2014This was really well done. Weaving three lives, around competitive bowling, I was actually cool with this. Where one question pops up, the segue into the next completely covers it. No real loose ends left dangling. Enjoyable read.
Submitted By: Calia on Jan 29, 2013Who would have thought a book that takes place around a bowling tournament would be interesting. Surprisingly this book was an engaging read, well written with likeable characters.
Submitted By: ardent_reader on Jan 28, 2013Happy that I got this from a giveaway on this site- it probably wouldn't have snagged my attention otherwise. But a little mainstream romance can be a good thing.
Submitted By: BonDarKen on Jan 28, 2013The perfect score is one of the best stories I have ever read, it had me crying, laughing, scared, joyous, and most of all happy at how it ended, if I could I would rate this at 20. This was expecially good with the fact that they told the others stories also.
Submitted By: ksbruce on Jan 27, 2013it was an okay compilation of three stories. nothing overly special but it was great how they interwove and made the stories stronger
Submitted By: yolyl loves to read on Jan 25, 2013There was no plot buildup in this book- the female characters were stereotypical and i couldnt even finish the book. It was not my cup of tea. I just would not recommend this book to anyone.
Submitted By: angieia on Jan 20, 2013I liked how the three stories linked together. It was an interesting book.
Submitted By: MstCat on Jan 17, 2013I didn't like this book at all. I couldn't get past my distaste for the heroine in the first story. The other two stories were just okay for me. Overall I thought it was boring.
Submitted By: carol55 on Jan 12, 2013This set of three novellas are linked through three friends at a bowling tournament. I didn't like the heroine of the first but the hero was interesting - not many Japanese-American heroes around. The second featuring an FF relationship was nicely done. The last was good standard fare with a hot hero.
Submitted By: ukblk on Jan 11, 2013Three interlacing stories of 3 friends who also bowl together. Interestingly, each story could stand alone, but it's nice to read how each story intersects the other. The women are easy to relate to, flaws and all, but each story is interesting, heartwarming with a touch of humour mixed in. Loved them. Highly recommend.
Submitted By: lm145 on Jan 11, 2013Hot and fun mix of stories! Never thought a bowling alley could be so sexy, but when you add the cowboys I guess anything is possible!
Submitted By: nkuhnauthor on Jan 8, 2013What's hotter than cowboys, love, sex and drama? Nothing! Definitely enjoyed this book! It was great! Not a dull moment!
Submitted By: leahquerry on Jan 7, 2013A great book with 3 great stories. Be warned one of the stories is about a female couple
Submitted By: lreid on Jan 6, 2013Great story. Love the cowboys chasing the girls and story behind it.
Submitted By: bookworm77 on Jan 5, 2013Three wonderful stories by Beth Williamson, you can't go wrong here. The first story is about a very jaded women who finds love in an unlikely place. The second story is a little unconventional, this is an f/f story. I don't normally read these but Ms. Williamson did an exceptional job of writing this story that didn't make me feel squeamish. And the third and final story was my favourite. This is an ugly duckling story who finds her prince. It was sweet and hot! Go get your copy.
