Tonight we are thrilled to present what you all have been waiting for... The Long Awaited Event of the Dirty Deeds circuit...The Love Match of Tori Rivera and Jamie McCade. You've heard of The Hunger Games...well, this promises to take that to a different emotional level...We introduce for the first time a complete unedited following of all the inner thoughts, desires and resolutions with our participants...Ground Breaking...So get ready for the experience to feel, argue, lust and swoon...
The Fight Game is about to begin...
All participants have shown interest in the other. There has been a past history between them which has laid the groundwork for the interaction. Although at times it may seem one or both participants are saying they have no interest in the other/pushing back from any confrontations, both have indicated they are interested and all is done with agreement, no matter how confusing it may seem at the time.
In the Red Trunks, Tori "Legs" Rivera:
Twenty Four year old Tori is coming off a past romantic season where the ex did not fight fairly. He was a married man who hid this while Tori was falling hard for him. He played her, toyed with her and she found out in the most distressing way, while at the mall. There he was with his wife and baby girl. When confronted, he pulled the inside punch of introducing Tori as a High School Friend.
Tori has regrouped and gone into training with the main focus of Never Being Played Again. She has the education, support system of her best gal, Syd and her man Brian, and the financial freedom to work at Whitecaps, a hip ocean front restaurant. She works there because it makes her happy.
It goes without saying Tori has everything any man would want...She has a body which is real, womanly and the confidence in the way she moves. Sweet face whether made up or not...and Sass for days. She is comfortable in her own skin and has no trouble turning offers down.
Her past experience with tonight's participant Jamie McCade has been up and down.
In the Blue Trunks, Jamie "The Player" McCade:
Twenty Eight year old Jamie is The Man on the Beach. He is an award winning Surfer who has had a rep of taking whatever he wanted with out any problems...He clearly has had any assortment of women, Experienced and Newly Fresh...all comers were welcomed. He used the disclaimer of no leading on... hook ups were what they were, etc. His brash, direct, often crass and lewd (Dirty Talking) way of communicating his wants was all his own. (Think Kristen Ashley Man Dialect but unique to Surfer with Sexual Overtones as Nouns and Verbs and Major Alpha Insistence )
Jamie has a solid family, brother and sister and cares deeply for them. His best bud is Brian and they own Wax, their surf shop. Jamie is at the top of the surf game and is sponsored by well known companies. He has had a pretty carefree life and only recently has been interested in participating in this event.
His past experience with Tori Riviera has been up and down... with him pursuing this Event with all of the patience and skill of a Heavy Weight. He has made some tactical errors in the ramp up.
In his first encounter with Tori, he disregarded the fact she out right told him she had a boyfriend when he approached...causing a blatant show of no respect for relationships or Tori. This has remained a sticking point for his opponent and one not easily forgiven.
He has made points, though, by standing with and backing Tori in her taken down of Ex. This has led to a type of truce between them.
For Tori-she will not allow herself to be another notch on his hookup belt... and it is a long and varied one.
She has the strength to talk to herself and fight the feeling for this opponent as he has heartache written all over him.
For Jamie-he wins: he wins in all the Surf Competitions, he wins in pursuit of anything he wants...and he wants the woman he has named as Legs...Biggest asset (besides being a walking dream with all the perfect parts, ah hm...) Jamie is patient... will dig in for what he wants... will play the waiting game and has for the last 9 months.
Both have seen the sweet soft spots in each other... the places they keep hidden away. This knowledge can cause moments of clarity for Jamie but for Tori, it confuses what she feels making her vulnerable.
Rules of the Event:
There really are none...Both of these participants have been playing cat and mouse for 9 months. They spare, tease, pursue (Jamie) and give sass, deny interest (Tori/Legs). The ramp up has been happening with numerous encounters, some friendly with Syd and Brian at the family dinners every Sunday.... some while helping their friends move in together... other times at WhiteCaps. Every time Jamie is the pursuer and Tori the object of his desire.
The Main Event:
This will be a Fight Game to the finish... These two are equally matched due to the extreme want of both of them...There will be unlimited Smexy times, Miscommunication, Seriously Swoon Worthy Moments too numerous to count and all of it brought to you by J. Daniels and the pacing of her writing.
Be prepared to be Shocked...
Be prepared to Fall Hard...
Be Prepared to want both parties to have their HEA...
And be prepared to be in the game as much as the players....
The event starts December 6th 2016 so make sure you have your tickets...
It is one hell of a Fight Game part of the Dirty Deeds Circuit...
