Rainbow Snippets – 10.11.18

If you’re new to Rainbow Snippets, it’s a Facebook group where authors of LGBTQ fiction post a six-sentence snippet (or there abouts) of a WIP, a published story, or a recommendation, every weekend. You can see all the snippets here.

This week…a sneaky cover reveal for the Christmas novella coming soon, and a snippet featuring some brotherly…encouragement.

“Oh my god,” Chase whispered. “It’s happening again. What has gotten into you two?”

Kyle didn’t smile but splayed his hands on the table as he settled into his chair. “All I’m saying is you’re home now. It was only ever baseball that was keeping you two apart and now that your life has taken a different turn—I just think it’s about time you two found a bit of happiness, is all.”

Chase had to catch his breath. “It’s been almost six years. You can’t possibly think—”

“How many people have you dated in the last six years, Chase?” Tyler asked before stuffing his mouth full of waffle.

Chase blustered, then bit out, “Some. Plenty, actually.”

Kyle shook his finger without raising his hand from the table. “Not slept with. Dated.”

There was a snort from the chair next to him and Justin gazed up at him, clutching his invisible pearls. “Are you a hoe, Uncle Chase?”

Chase scowled at him and bumped him with his shoulder. “Shut up and eat your waffle.”

 


Tinsel Fixes Everything

They say you never get over your first love.

After a meteoric rise to baseball stardom, Chase Meadow’s dream is cut short and he’s back home for good, helping his brothers run the family bar while he finds his feet. Plenty of things have changed since he left for college. Although one thing he recognizes right away is Joel Levine.

From setting eyes on the skinny, stammering teen their first day of high school, until reluctantly parting five years later, the two of them had been inseparable. And now, Joel is definitely someone not easily forgotten.

But as Chase settles back into home town life, he finds that under the superficial differences—the leather jacket and tattoos—Joel is still the same person he fell for when they were fifteen. While they’re both older and wiser, Chase never stopped loving Joel. And as Christmas rolls closer, Chase starts to think that maybe Joel never stopped loving him either.

They say you never get over your first love.
Some people don’t have to.
