#Treadmill Week 124 & What I #AmReading – Hangover and Out by Zakarrie Clarke

Treadmill Goals/Tracking

  • Get on the treadmill (or equivalent exercise) daily
  • Pace is fine at 30 min/mile, although I may up it on occasion
  • Time range between 30 minutes and 1 hour per day
  • Distance 1-2 miles per day
  • Read the chosen book, which I won’t allow myself to read outside of my treadmill time, hopefully motivating me to reach or exceed the above goals (exception…at the end of the week where a book is highlighted, I will finish it off-treadmill so I can feature something new the next week)

What I’m Reading

Note: Although I will try to avoid them, my weekly reading snippets may or may not contain spoilers, so read at your own risk.

What I #amreading: Hangover and Out (Hangover – book #2) by Zakarrie Clarke (because I couldn’t wait any longer to get more Daniel and Callum!)

Callum and Daniel have flown home to face the music, management, press and public after waking in Vegas with a Hangover for life and very much Out. Cal has finally allowed himself to snatch the fate he craved more than he can permit its consequences to count; even a future beond his control and his ability to safeguard it. Whether Callum can now survive the scrutiny of the public and press, Paul’s proclamations of doom and the mind-boggling dexterity of the hellfire tongue, unleashed? Is quite another story…

My favorite lines this week…

✿✿ SUNDAY ✿✿

“Daniel! How are you this morning? How’s your lip? How’s married life?” hollered a hack.

“Bloody brilliant, I’ve very well, thank you. ‘Twas my own fault for sticking my face in front of a flying fist. ‘Tis never the most circumspect of decisions, oddly ’nuff.” Daniel breezed, a wide grin stretching his scabby lip to splitting point. Worse still, there was a huge fucking love bite decorating his neck. Virulent violet. With flashing fairy lights around it…and a ‘look at me’ signpost.

✿✿ MONDAY ✿✿

The press would soon weary of their story, surely? There must have been one helluva dearth of news the day their story broke. With a bit of luck, the moment something more salacious happened along, they’d scuttle off after it like ferrets up a trouser leg.


Brad had been so conspicuously quiet, Dan had suspected his nose was so put out o’joint, he’d be hard pressed to hoover anything up it. Let alone violate any vowels.


A tremor very like terror trembled through Dan’s body. The twisty, treacherous fear of being about to get what you craved most on earth. Daniel dragged in a desperate breath, as if to becalm a heartbeat hammering hard ’nuff to burst; hovering on the precipice of a paradise he’d never dared dream would be his. A part of him wanted to clutch onto the moment forever; the ineffable bliss of being about to scale an impossible peak…but that bit was outvoted.


“Y’okay?” Daniel frowned, after noting Cal’s scrutiny.

“Yeah. I’m fine. Don’t worry.”

“I always worry.” Dan sighed.

“I know y’do, but you needn’t about this, okay? I’m okay. I want you to enjoy it, maybe even remember doing so.

“’Kay…if you’re sure, cos I could rustle up a swoon, if you like?”

✿✿ FRIDAY ✿✿

“I definitely don’t pay you ’nuff to waft logic my way, Mattie. ’Til most unseemly.”


“Stop nagging. Strewth. I’m workin’ on it.” Callum peered down at his jeans as if a troupe of tap dancing mice might suddenly spring forth from his flies. Or he was about to disable a deadly device. Hmm.

    1. I adore your stories. I especially love the phrasing. It’s so hard to narrow down all the fabulous passages to select just one little quote per day.
