Hump Day Hook 5

Read more Hump Day Hooks here

Heat up Hump Day with a tantalizing hook for readers...a challenge I take with a group of other authors.

Here's an excerpt from from Chapter 7 of THE PRINCE CHARMING HOAX. Should a woman ever ask a man to help pick out her outfit? Roxie reluctantly gives D.J. that option when he won't tell her where's he taking her on their first date. Let's join them and see how that works out. 

D.J. didn’t skip a beat when she led him to her closet. He started to go through her wardrobe, which took a considerable amount of time. He finally held up a tiny red slip dress, with several rows of narrow rhinestone straps that crisscrossed in back.

“Try this one on for me. And take your hair down, please.”

Roxie rolled her eyes at him, but took the dress into her dressing area and put it on. The bodice of the dress was very small and the thin, clingy fabric barely covered her nipples, emphasizing her full, round breasts. The back of the dress dipped down to right above the crack in her derriere. The dress was so short that she could not bend over without exposing her cheeks. She had only one pair of tiny panties that could be worn with this dress, and she slipped on the lace thong, which was attached to a tiny triangle of material that barely covered the intended area. She came out of the dressing room, expecting him to say, “Forget it.”

“Perfect! Now put on these shoes.” He held out a pair of Stuart Weitzman high-heel sandals with a rhinestone ball decorating the clear strap across her toes.

“D.J., are you sure? This is the dress I wore last Halloween to a ‘Pimp and Prostitute’ party!”

Where is D.J. taking Roxie that "hooker attire" is the dress code? Find out...
