Hi! Welcome to another Weekend Writing Warrior round. Every week writers post 8 sentences on their blogs from a published or unpublished book. Then we "hop" around and leave comments on each other's snippets. Whether our work is already published or in progress, the helpful comments help us become stronger writers on our next WIP. We welcome EVERYONE's comments.
We are picking up immediately after Layne runs from the room when Justin kisses her unexpectedly.
(the following has been edited to fit) ...and now the
"Layne," he drew a deep breath in and followed her into the living room, "what's wrong?"
She had her back to him; "I... can't do this..." her voice wavered.
"I'm sorry Layne, I didn't mean to take advantage," he touched her shoulder and she flinched, "I've just wanted to kiss you and hold you."
She turned to him "are you married?"
He sat down on the couch, "when I asked if there was any man in Dennis' life you said no."
"Then where is your husband?"
She paced, "I left him the night that Dennis was conceived."

About Common Bond, Tangled Hearts
Layne Gillette’s world is turned upside down when a man she has never met shows up to lay claim as the father of her 6-year old son.
Justin, the victim of a fraternity prank, and Layne, the subject of a forced insemination, have produced a beautiful child that they are both willing to protect… at all costs.
The two parents realize they can love each other, but when Layne’s abusive “ex-husband” shows up, they are torn apart by danger, kidnapping and lies. Justin won’t give up until Layne is returned to him. Layne uses her newfound strength, courage and knowledge to defy Charlie’s ugliest demands.
This is EXCITING news, please help us to shout it from the roof-tops!
