I broke with ‘tradition’ this week…it’s Sunday afternoon again. 🙂 Hubby is off buying food and I have the laptop off its leash so I can finally get down to work. I had to look twice at the calendars…holy cow September is off to a running start!
This week I’m again posting from the brand new release ‘Aria” (Upstaged 4) which came out Jul 12th on Extasy Books. (links are below to their site and Amazon).
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?
This week we pick up with the wedding talk that Asher and his twin sister, Daisy are arguing about…errr…discussing? Enjoy!.”
“Whoa, there. Just simmer down, Asher.” Erik laid a hand on his arm. Asher shook it off.
“Hey, in the end, it’s our day. Let the women take care of the details. It’s what they live for. My mom’s always pestering me with questions, and I tell her to just run with it. So far, it all sounds good to me.” He ran a hand over Asher’s hair. “Besides, whatever you wear—I don’t care if it’s a suit or a dress, whatever—you’ll look fabulous. It’d be more interesting if you did wear a dress, then you and Con would match better.” He laughed.
Joey joined the chat. “What about a dress? What’d I miss, Daisy?”
“My ridiculous brother is threatening to turn up in a wedding dress if we keep trying to persuade him to wear a suit.”
“Connor’s wearing a skirt,” Asher grumbled, scowling at his plate as he systematically shredded a bread roll.
“It’s a kilt. It’s different. You know it is.”
