Welcome to Books by Banister!  I'm excited to be participating in Six Sentence Sunday once again.  This week's offering is from my fun, new Chick Lit novel, IN NEED OF THERAPY, which tells the story of Cuban-American psychologist, Pilar Alvarez, who is trying to juggle her career, her high-maintenance family, and a love life that's a complete disaster.  One of the men who's vying for her heart is Pilar's cheating ex, Latin Lothario Victor Liscano.  She gave him his walking papers weeks ago, but he will not accept that their break-up is a done deal and he continues to pursue her.  In this scene, he calls her at work to invite her out for a romantic dinner . . .

"But you love Tantra!  Don't you remember we went there for our one-month anniversary?  I hand fed you lobster dipped in bleeding heart truffle vinaigrette and grilled quail with fresh figs, then we went back to my place and spent hours experimenting with Kama Su--"

"Victor!" I interrupted him before his walk down memory lane became X-rated.

"Okay, you don't like Tantra anymore; I'll take you to B.E.D."  Where patrons ate their meals while sitting on large mattresses - a theme seemed to be developing with Victor's restaurant choices.

  1. Teehee! I like him...never give up, my kinda man.

  2. Hmm. Very interesting. Lobster dipped in....

  3. I like Victor's choice of food. He can take me to dinner any time, if he cuts out the smarm! Made me laugh remembering those lines from reading the book! Told you there was plenty of ammo in In Need of Therapy for a Six! Sooz x
