Rainbow Snippets is 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 or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (snippets are 6 sentences long–one for each colour in the Pride flag). You can find all the snippets by clicking here.
This weekend is the Angels and Sirens book signing in Pittsburgh and my first real life meeting with my co-author V.L. Locey so it seems fitting that this week's Rainbow Snippet is from our first book together, Changing Lines (Harrisburg Railers #1).
Mads blinked… then leaned in to press his lips to mine. It was a chaste kiss, but it nearly knocked me backward off the bench. His lips were soft but firm, like he was determined there would be no tongues. As soon as my brain touched on tongues, he sprang up from the bench as if he’d sat on a hornet. I heard him kick over his glass of water, but that was the last of my concerns.
“That was not supposed to happen,” he coughed as he aimed himself at my door.
The Book – OUT NOW
The Rowe Brothers are famous hockey hotshots, but as the youngest of the trio, Tennant has always had to play against his brothers’ reputations. To get out of their shadows, and against their advice, he accepts a trade to the Harrisburg Railers, where he runs into Jared Madsen. Mads is an old family friend and his brother’s one-time teammate. Mads is Tennant’s new coach. And Mads is the sexiest thing he’s ever laid eyes on.
Jared Madsen’s hockey career was cut short by a fault in his heart, but coaching keeps him close to the game. When Ten is traded to the team, his carefully organized world is thrown into chaos. Nine years his junior and his best friend’s brother, he knows Ten is strictly off-limits, but as soon as he sees Ten’s moves, on and off the ice, he knows that his heart could get him into trouble again.
Can Tennant show Jared that age is just a number, and that love is all that matters?
