It’s time to share my first post in the Saturday Seductive Studs weekly bloghop and I’m a little wiggly over it all. Thanks to Ciaran Dwynvil, the end of SixSentenceSunday doesn’t mean the end of sharing snippets! The best part about this group is the focus on M/M. All flavors of Romance & ERom have their place, but sometimes it’s just nice to hang with folks who’re all into the same thing.
So here goes, my first #SeductiveStuds!
I looked for a new sexy bit from Comfort and Joy but am up against the wall regarding the limit on % of material I can post, so that idea fizzled. I’m too superstitious to post from stories out on submission, so while pondering which WIP to scour for this week’s post I got a sign. I only believe in signs if I like them, and this one I’m liking quite a bit at the moment. So, here’s another snippet from my M/M Erotic Paranormal Romance with mystery elements.
We’re in Colin’s head and he’s just getting to know the mysterious and slightly scary P.I. he met over a dead body. (Don’t judge Colin too harshly for his somewhat un-manly behavior. It’s early in the story but the poor guy’s only 18 and has gone through a lot already, most of it without blinking.)
He’d never felt so ashamed in his life as when he found himself in the alley the tattooed girl had tried to pull him into, clutching Al with both hands to try and stay upright, and sobbing like a little baby.
After a few minutes he realized they were just standing in the alley, Al’s embrace holding him up. When he moved some of his weight onto his own feet Al’s arms tightened around him. Colin tried to concentrate on his breathing so he could calm down, but that wasn’t so easy in the position he was in. Al always wore baggy t-shirts and his leather jacket was too small, both of which made him look a little overweight. He didn’t have a drip of fat on him. Colin’s face rested against a chest more like iron than dough.

Whoa, this looks good. 🙂
Thanks, Elin! I love these guys & can’t wait to get back to editing. 🙂
I enjoyed reading, including the part for the next time 🙂 And now I’m wondering what’s wrong with a moment of foreplay in the world of the story.
Btw, I found your post because I checked the blogs one by one but since some of authors don’t play every week, I believe that most people pick the active links in the FB group.
*lol* Thanks! WP went live with the wrong version of my post!! I hate it when that happens. Now I’ll have to find another sexy bit with no spoilers for next time. 🙂
I’ll try to remember that!
Great bit, Charley!
Thanks, C.C.! I enjoyed yours too. 🙂
Loved the great play between words iron – dough, drip of fat, baggy t-shirts – leather jacket. It’s like watching a movie in my head. Oh yep, I can’t wait to read more.
Thanks, Susan! So sweet of you to come by and leave such kind words. 🙂
Excellent. I love the way you described him. I wasn’t sure what i was expecting, given the line about his jacket making him appear overweight. I love the last line. He sounds sexy.
Wow, Joanne, you’re fast!
Thanks! Al is a lot of things & sexy is definitely one of them. 🙂
Nice! I love the bit about his chest feeling like iron 🙂
Wow, you crammed a lot of information and description into a short little snippet. Nicely done!
You’re onto something here!
Interesting description and characterization!
Poor Colin! And Al sounds secretly yummy! I like! 🙂
