Weekend means Rainbow Snippet time here on the blog. I’ve joined the Rainbow Snippets group on Facebook. According to their description, “it’s a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction—a WIP or a finished work of even 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).”

My snippet this week is from my upcoming short story Unconditionally, but this week I thought I’d show you how Luca and Gus met. And, um, I apparently can’t count to six this week either 🙂

“Live long and prosper, sir. But aren’t you a little short to be Mr. Spock?”

The low, breathy voice in Gus’s ear startled him. “What?”

He furrowed his eyebrows and turned to look at the speaker. How was it possible he’d been so deep in thought he’d missed a guy coming up to him, standing so close, he could practically whisper in Gus’s ear?

But Gus took a closer look and forgot about everything else. The guy was thin and tall and had to hunch over to get his mouth next to Gus’s ear. He wore a figure-hugging pink sweater, so short it left a strip of skin visible over the waistband of his jeans. His dark brown hair reached his chin and had the slightest curl at the ends. Long bangs covered one of his eyes, leaving only one dark, glittering eye visible and trained on Gus. But his lips stole all Gus’s attention. Full, pouty lips, curved up in an amused smile. Lips that glistened in the dim light at the bar like he’d just licked them or put something on them.

“Um…what?” Gus asked again.

It’s always a good sign when you meet someone who renders you speechless, right? 🙂
