2019 is finally coming to a close. For me and my family it was a mixed bag. Job-wise things were fine, I picked up a new hobby, and my little family unit is healthy. It had other notes in there though; frustrations and angst at times; but all par for the course in this play called ‘life;.
As for New Years, no plans to party down. Not a party family in the slightest to be honest. We’re lucky to make it to midnight 🙂
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.
This week I’m sticking with one of my older works again which was formerly “Refugees” but was re-named “This Time Around”.

Can two lonely souls finally get a second chance on getting it right?
Robert can’t believe this has happened again. His heart is in tatters, all because of his once-again ex. Out of pure frustration, he takes matters into his own hands and gives boxing a try. All he gains is an injured hand, which needs the attention of a physical therapist.
David is overwhelmed and his heart is in denial over the sudden departure of the man he was in love with. As he tries to piece his life back together, a patient needing therapy walks into his clinic and the attraction is immediate; but the desire is not.
Can these two finally find a good relationship that will last and work this time around?
This guy looked worse than he did. Honestly, Robert had an insatiable desire to hear someone else’s troubles other than his own. He tried humor. “Do you know any complete sentences?”
Cold, barren emerald green eyes stared at him for a painful moment. Robert could see the agony behind those eyes. There was absolutely no spark, no fire, no twinkle. Nothing. No life at all.
“I have… issues”.
“Well I can see that. I have major ones myself. I’m a good listener….” he commented.
David raised a brow for a second, and he opened his mouth to speak, but closed it. “I… no. No, I don’t know you at all.”
“Well, I think we’ll be working together awhile. Maybe later?” Robert offered.
David shrugged. “Yeah. Later.”
