This week’s snippet is from a brand new story in a brand new series. Elliott House: Quin is also part of a multi-author giveaway, so stick around to the end and I’ll tell you how to get it free!
This snip is from a reunion scene almost fifteen years in the making. It’s a tad more than six sentences, but two of them are single words. ❤
Jeremy pushed off from the tree and took one step closer to Quin. After hesitating, he took another, his eyes locked on Quin’s. Jeremy’s lovely hazel eyes were wide and full of heat, and something else. Hope? Surprise? Normally, Quin prided himself on being able to read body language and expressions, to pick up on signals his clients gave so he could better help them. But he couldn’t read Jeremy. His frustration threatened to spill out between them with inappropriate force. Before Jeremy could take a third step, and stand inside Quin’s personal space, Quin stepped back.
Thank you for reading!

Elliott House: Quin
Henry “Quin” Quinones made a horrible mistake when he was seventeen. The next day, his secret high school boyfriend had vanished. Quin thought his bad judgement caused Jeremy to abandon him, and he’s been hurt, angry, and alone since that day.
When Jeremy heard his secret high school boyfriend had died in a tragic accident, he ran away. Lost and grieving, he tried to create a life far from that disaster, in a world without the boy he loved.
They both had it wrong.
Fifteen years later, Quin has worked hard to make a life for himself as a social worker at the Elliott Foundation House. He loves his job helping LGBTQIA+ youth get off the streets, and he’s living on-site to escape the loneliness that defines his off-hours.
When Quin gets a text from Jeremy out of the blue, he almost doesn’t respond. But maybe if he hears Jeremy’s side of the story, he can finally leave the past behind and move on.
Can the truth be enough to heal fifteen years of pain, and give them a second chance at forever?
