Rainbow Snippets July 20th

Happy weekend! It’s a Saurday and a hot one here in ye olde Midwest. 😦 I’m NOT a fan of the heat or humidity, but combine them and you have absolute misery.

I talked about recreating the characters (main four of Erik, Asher, Billy, and Vince) in the Sims 3, which I’ve done…now to get some photos up. So far so good! Erik is an aspiring rock star, Vince is a chef, Asher the artist, and Billy…is unsure.

This week I’m posting from the brand new release ‘Aria” (Upstaged 4) which came out Jul 12th on Extasy Books. (link below)

What is Rainbow Snippets? It’s a group of LGBT+ authors who post six sentences (or more) from a current WIP, published work or even something they’ve read that they want to rave about. Click on the link below the rainbow to be transported to a place of wonder where you will find tasters of everything from sweet romance, to hot and steamy, to fantasy and sci-fi.

Blurb: You think you’re holding someone close, but if you’re not paying attention, they could slip right out of your arms and fall.

Asher and Erik are getting married, but Asher isn’t happy about the pressure being put on him by their families and unwittingly by Erik himself. Issues that have plagued him for a long time come bubbling to the surface and threaten to overwhelm him. Although he cries out for help, no one hears; instead they write it off as Asher throwing a tantrum again. Only Angel sees the cracks, but it’s too much for him to handle on his own, although he tries.

The pressure builds, and even though there are breakouts, still no one sees the extent of the problem until the night before the wedding, when Asher is confronted by Erik in front of all their family and friends, and bolts.

Fortunately, Asher is rescued by Vince’s Uncle Tony, who makes him an offer he can’t refuse.

The Band heads off to London for a three-month tour, and not everyone is happy about it. Vince is stressed out and worried that Angel is not being entirely faithful. Should he say something? Then Connor meets an old friend, just when he starts having doubts about his relationship with Angel, and the fur starts to fly.

Will any of the couples survive?

Poor guys had been living the wedding planning nightmare, but only had a few more days to go.

Dripping fat hissed on the brand-new barbecue, and Vince moved some of the hamburgers over so they wouldn’t get singed. The grill was full of meat of all kinds—chicken, burger, even a couple of steaks. Erik had a huge appetite, as did Daisy, ever since her pregnancy. Vince had cut back on his own food intake, and the proof was in his new wardrobe. He’d lost 30 pounds since the marriage a year ago. Amazing, since he was a chef, with only a year to go to complete culinary school.



A lover of words and writing since they entered my life as a young child. Now a devout lover of men (especially late teen, college and mature men) to write their stories.

  1. Actually it’s not surprising. Sometimes paying more attention to the food you prepare and eat can have the side effect of someone being more attentive about what they put into their body…and avoiding some of the truly unhealthy stuff one can just pick up and eat without even thinking about it. Sounds like this weight loss was a healthy one for Ash, which made him enjoy his food more. Good for him!

  2. Too much meat on that grill, IMO. How about some veggies too? And chefs often don’t eat what they fix. I know my appetite is often dulled when I cook a lot (but I’m not a chef, so…)
