Sex Snob
by Elizabeth Hayley
Publication: November 21st, 2013
Genre: Adult Romantic Comedy

Twenty-nine year old wild, carefree, and brutally sarcastic Amanda Bishop thought her three rules for dating would weed out unworthy suitors. And they did. Until she met Shane Reed, her smart-ass, sexy-as-sin CrossFit coach who pushes all her buttons. He’s the man she loves to hate. But when the hate begins to ebb away, and is replaced by feelings she can’t handle, Amanda hides behind her rules. Will the electric chemistry she feels with Shane allow her to get beyond a painful past, or will she push him away with her rules? Rules that make her the ultimate Sex Snob.

** Sex Snob is a spin-off of Pieces of Perfect but can be read as a stand-alone novel. **

Chapter 1: CrossFit with Shane

I began to stretch as I watched the previous class finish up. From the look of the sweat-drenched participants, today was going to suck hardcore. As I watched the group strain to do their final round of burpees, my eyes fell on him.
Coach Shane. What a class A prick. “Come on, chests on the floor,” he yelled at the expiring exercisers.
This was what I hated most about this place. Shane Fucking Reed. He was a cocky son of a bitch who had made it his goal in life to irritate the hell out of me. In the three months I’d been a member here, he has never failed to make some flippant, antagonizing remark during my workouts with him.
My mind wandered as I thought about how lucky he was that he was so gorgeous because his personality was really shitty. He was at least six feet tall, maybe taller, with light blond hair and dazzling blue eyes. And he was fucking ripped. Adonis himself would be jealous of Shane’s body. He was lean, but every part of his body rippled with muscle. If he could only have been born a mute, he’d be absolutely perfect.
“You here to daydream or are you going to actually try to keep up with the workout today?” Shane’s words screeched through my fantasy like fingernails on a chalkboard.
“If you weren’t so goddamn boring, maybe I’d be more attentive,” I shot back.
“You talk a big game, Bishop. Too bad your body can’t back all that smack up,” Shane yelled over his shoulder as he headed for the gym’s only office.
I shook my head as the previous class hobbled out the door.
“How was it?” I asked Lily, my roommate. She’s a teacher, so she was always able to make the earlier classes during the summer.
“How does it look like it was?” she replied as she held out her hands and spun around. Her tank top was drenched in sweat. Since the gym was in an old warehouse, it didn’t have air conditioning, and the late August air was oppressive.
“Awesome,” I muttered. Not only had I barely dragged myself here, but I hated when Shane saw me struggle. He got some sick, twisted satisfaction from it I’m sure.
“I’ll see you at home,” Lily said as she walked toward the cubbies where we stored our keys and other personal items. She took two steps, and then turned back toward me. “By the way,” she motioned with her head toward the office, “he’s an even bigger dick than usual today.”
“Fantastic. He probably got shot down by a flock of sex-starved virgins last night or something,” I replied.
Lily laughed loudly as Shane emerged from the office and walked toward us.
“What’s funny? Amanda’s love handles?” Shane smirked as he stopped in front of me, blocking Lily from my view.
“Interesting. That brings up a question I’ve been pondering. Since you’re in such great shape, what does your boyfriend hold onto when he’s plowing into you from behind?” I asked deadpan. Lily leaned to the side, her mouth hanging open. She seemed surprised that I would say something like this. Hmm, I thought she knew me better.
I gazed curiously at him, as if I expected an answer.
Shane grunted out a harsh laugh. “Funny. We’ll see how much you’re laughing in an hour.” Then he walked away as though I was no longer worthy of his company.
I turned to Lily. “Was it something I said?” I asked her as my lips began to twitch from trying to suppress a smile.
“Just remember, I warned ya. Good luck,” she said as she shook her head and walked to retrieve her keys.
“Okay, everybody, let’s warm up. Kate, take them through it,” Shane ordered.
Kate was also a coach, though she never actually ran any of the classes. She usually helped monitor us as we went through the workout to make sure we were completing the movements with the correct form and weren’t fudging our counts. She was tall, maybe 5’10 and beautiful. She had the body of a fitness model with her shiny brown hair, flawless skin and washboard stomach. I desperately wanted to hate her, but I couldn’t. Truth was, she was incredibly personable and had a great sense of humor. And she often got stuck working with Shane. Poor girl. Though the way she looked at him sometimes made me wonder if there was something going on between them. And I can’t lie. The thought made me a tad bit envious.
Despite his being a total asshole, I would still like to ride him like a fucking cowgirl. I mean, I can’t ignore the fact that he is totally panty-dropping sexy. I have a very healthy libido, which keeps my mind permanently in the gutter, and I’m not ashamed of it in the least. I’m ever on the prowl for prospective men who look like they could give me a good dicking.
And if it weren’t for the fact that I’d never be able to look at myself in the mirror again, Shane would be at the top of my list.

Elizabeth Hayley is actually “Elizabeth” and “Hayley,” two friends who love reading romance novels to obsessive levels. This mutual love prompted them to put their English degrees to good use by penning their own. The product is Pieces of Perfect, their debut novel. They learned a ton about one another through the process, like how they clearly share a brain and have a persistent need to text each other constantly (much to their husbands' chagrin). They are currently getting ready to release Sex Snob, a novel centered around Lily’s roommate Amanda, and have also begun writing the sequel to Pieces of Perfect.

“Elizabeth” lives with her husband, one and a half year old daughter and nutjob of a dog. “Hayley” lives with her husband and her own crazy dog. They are about to adopt a newborn son in November. Elizabeth Hayley's writing motto is best captured by the words of Patrick Dennis: “I always start with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind.”
