Jodi Linton | The Wannabe Smooth Talker
This blog is dedicated to every wannabe smooth-talker.
My name is Jodi Linton. I’m the author of the Deputy
Laney Briggs Series and my upcoming The Original Sinners Motorcycle
Club Series with Entangled Publishing. I’ve lived in Texas my entire
life. And no, I’m not married to a ‘real’ cowboy. But I do share my suburbia
home with a teacher who has a hobby moonlighting as a drummer.
Today I want to talk about horrible pick-up lines. You know, the ones that
make you cringe with their seediness. I’ve weathered my fair share of
creepy one-liners, and while I’m like, “Get the hell away from me!” at the
time, they can be quite hilarious in retrospect.
So when it came to needing a line for this blog post, I asked a fellow
author friend about the worst pick-up line ever used on her, and hers beat
any of mine hands down. Her lovely boyfriend shot off this heart-stopper
when they first met: “Hey, baby. You got five minutes to regret?” I’ve
gotta say it is pretty good, and yeah, maybe back in the day when my husband
was trying every play in the book to snag a date with me this one would’ve
made me laugh. And it probably would have made me say, “Buy me a drink, and
then we’ll see about the next five minutes.”
Tell me. What’s some of your favorite worst pick-up lines ever?
Bye for now, y’all,

She's about to go vigilante on his ass...
Laney Briggs was almost certain that her sexy-assed Texas Ranger, Gunner
Wilson, was gonna pop the question. Instead, he went and pulled one helluva
fast one—he arrested her best friend, Luke Wagner and skipped out. Now
Pistol Rock's firecracker deputy is ready to go Wild West on Gunner...if she
can just keep that raw, sexual chemistry under control.
Gunner was planning to propose, and it all went to hell. Now he's boots-deep
into an investigation with ties to the Dirty Southern Mafia and corrupt
cops. Yep, Laney is definitely gonna have his hide. Especially when she
finds out just how much he's been keeping from her...
But Laney has a weakness for Gunner's delectable cowboy hotness. And for
him, she will break every rule in the book—including the ones she's sworn to

The only pick-up line I have for you is this one. Nice to meet the woman who's going to be the mother of my children! Instead of pick-up lines, I'd rather be picking up these great books and reading them!! Your book really sounds good, and I can't wait to see how it all plays out!! Congratulations on what I know is going to be a big hit!! I love the cover as well!! It's on my TBR list, and will make a welcomed addition to my Summer reading list!!
