Weekends means Rainbow Snippets-time here on the blog, since 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!).”

Cinnamon Eyes was released yesterday. Yay! Celebration time!

(Seriously, though. Whoever invented confetti didn’t think that through properly. It’s sooo hard to clean up! 🙂 )

Anyway. This week’s snippet continues where we left off last week. Cory and Asher, alone, face-to-face for the first time in sixteen years.

And a big thank you to all of you who have commented and said it was emotional. Y’all made me very happy, because that’s what I was going for ❤️

Pale green eyes bored into me, peering all the way into my soul. I drew in a shuddering breath, and the confession spilled out of me. “I’ve missed you.”

The words hardly escaped my lips before I was wrapped up in his strong arms. Our bodies fit perfectly together, with my head right under his chin. I wound my arms around his waist. As I did, his shirt slid up, and my hands came in contact with naked skin.

Warmth rushed through my fingertips and heated up my body. My appetite had vanished as the depression set in, and I’d lost nearly thirty pounds over the last year, leaving me constantly cold. Here, in his embrace, was the first time I wasn’t freezing in a long time.

Cory and Asher’s reception has so far been great, making me a very proud and excited book mama. I set out to write an emotional story with an intense reunion, and I’m happy I succeeded 🙂
