Truth, Dare and… Amber Myers

Amber is not only the incredibly funny woman behind the very amusing Airing My Dirty Laundry blog, she’s also a writer of chick lit.  So, let’s delve into the dirty laundry of Amber’s dares.

The craziest dare I've ever done? Honestly, nothing too insane. I once had to go up to a boy and tell him I liked him--but I was 10, so it wasn't so mortifying. I've never had to streak, which is a good thing, because no one wants to see my naked butt. And with my luck, someone would record it, post it on YouTube, and then it would go viral. How would I explain THAT to my husband?

Why did I do it? My friends dared me. But again, we were young. I haven't played the game in many years. Maybe I should start. It would probably be amusing. I imagine I'd be dared to take shots. I'm awful at taking shots. I tend to sip them and get laughed at.

The outcome of telling the boy I liked him? Bad. He looked at me as though I were insane. I probably looked insane since I was shaking so much. His feelings were NOT mutual. This was okay though since I'm from a military family and we moved every few years so I got to escape him.

To be honest, I’ve never confessed my feelings to a guy.  Ever.  I know, I’m a wimp.

Want to read more of Amber Myers?  Check out her book, The Swimmer's Assistant .

Meet Jane Williams.

She doesn’t understand the popularity of Twilight, can’t walk properly in high heels, struggles to speak Starbucks (venti what?), and nearly drowned in the toilet when she was a baby.

amber_myersMeet Brian Parker.

He’s a star swimmer with a temper and has just hired Jane to be his assistant as he trains for the London Olympics.

Enter the problem.

Jane has developed feelings for Brian which is ridiculous because he has a dog who hates her, he chews with his mouth open, and has a perfect Twilight-obsessed girlfriend named Vanessa who plays Cinderella at Disneyland. Surely her crush can’t amount to anything. Or can it? There was that time when they nearly kissed…..
