Rainbow Snippet — A New Man

rainbow snippet logo The Rainbow Snippets is a weekend challenge to post 6 sentences from one of my works or WIPs. Since A New Man placed so nicely at the Rainbow Awards (which I have been sadly remiss in mentioning, but Chad and Warren placed 4th in Contemporary and 10th overall) I decided to share a pivotal moment from their story. Chad has a difficult -to-admit issue that’s about to change both their lives, and at the moment, they’re in bed together for the first time.


“Might need to get a little harder than that first.”

No shit. Rolling over and burying his face in the pillows wasn’t enough to smother him so he’d never have to explain. Warren let go and cuddled up close to Chad’s back, where he wouldn’t be for long. Should never have strayed out of the friend zone. Because this was way worse than anything Chad ever experienced with his more adventurous girlfriends. This was everything he wanted. Everything he couldn’t have. Might as well get it over with. Might as well cut out his heart, or cut off his useless balls.

“You don’t understand,” he growled into the ticking. “That’s the best it’s ever been.”

Find the rest of the story:  Dreamspinner or Amazon or Barnes and Noble, or at All Romance eBooks.

    Intriguing – poor lad! I’m hooked.

  8. Ouch. His discomfort and self-consciousness come across so strongly here.

  9. The poor guy! I hope Warren is the understanding kind.

  10. Aww, poor soul! Since it is a romance, I’m sure they’ll deal with it together but this is really tough. I’m curious how the other guy will react now 🙂

  11. What a treat to read an unusual – yet realistic! – situation. And congrats on the Rainbow Awards! ❤
