I LOVE that you named the dog Reacher.
I said last week that Reacher is a famous character in a best selling author’s series. It’s your story so do what you want. This is a suggestion, Tina.
I like the title Blindsided. If there aren’t more than a few books with that title and they’re not new, I’d say go with it. It’s so hard to find a title that hasn’t been used.
Thanks, Cara. Some of them are pretty new, but I’ll check.
Oh, they joy of finding a title that hasn’t been overused. I love the doggie. I could sense his butt-wiggling joy. 🙂
Lol, thanks, Christina. Reacher is a very happy dog;).
Love the surprise kiss, and a dog is a great way to get them back together. The name is a nice little glimpse into Jace’s character.
Thanks, Alexis. Exactly, which is why I need to get it right;).
I was going to leave a thought but then I saw reading was sexy and completely forgot what I was going to say.
Love how you refer to Reacher’s “owner” as Dad. They are like our children.
Lol, thank you, Daryl:).
A stowaway dog! Good thing he didn’t end up in her lap while she was driving… I had a kitten escape a carrier and climb on my on the highway. It was exciting!
Reacher is too well behaved to climb during driving…and he’s trying to achieve something here (talk about anthropomorphizing an animal;).
Oh my, climbing kittens does sound exciting. I hope everything ended up fine.
What’s the dog doing there!? Perhaps the wise creature has decided to intervene to force Ana to have to see Jace again! Nice snippet. 🙂
You’ve hit the nail on the head. Reacher has decided Jace needs someone in his life;).
I like the title Blindsided, maybe and a second word or phrase with it to make it a bit unique. And I LOVE the name of the dog, perhaps Jace named the dog after the famous character?
Finding the dog in the car was magnificent, certainly a great ploy to get her back to Jace.
Thank you, Chelle, and yes, Jace named the dog because he is a fan;).
The licking, black face reminded me of my dog, Twiggles. She has no tail but when she’s happy her whole rear end sort of, well, twiggles.
I empathize on titles. Back when I was writing for Silhouette, they never used my titles because they were so bad. I finally spent no more than 10 seconds coming up with a meaningless title on a book, Step from a Dream, knowing they’d change it. But of course, that was the one title of mine they actually used.
Lol, Ed, that sounds about right;). Thanks for stopping by.
The stowaway dog is a fun touch! Enjoyed it. The thing I’d say about using names like Reacher is you risk taking your reader completely out of the story. I read that name and I’m now visualizing Tom Cruise in the movie and that has nothing to do with your book. It’s a cute trope but is it worth distracting the reader from your characters and what they’re doing? But ultimately, it’s your book and your decisions! Best wishes 🙂
Excellent point, Veronica. I’ll play with it some more once I have more of a draft and see what I need. Thank you!
Reacher must go home. 🙂 Great way to reconnect Ana and Jace.
