This week’s snippet picks up where last week’s left off (with a little license to smooth it out & skip parts that won’t make sense until you read from the beginning).
Jake ducked back into the salon and almost ran into Antonio. “Thanks for taking care of him on such short notice, you’re the best.”
“You’re right about that.” Antonio kissed Jake’s cheek and leaned back to look at him. “And it was no notice, but who’s counting. You okay?”
Jake ran a shaky hand through his own short hair which, if he were completely honest, felt just that side of shaggy. “Will be, didn’t expect to see him today.”
I promise, the good stuff is coming soon. I’ll post 8 sentences every weekend until A Sunday Kind of Love is released on June 9th!
This snippet has been brought to you by the gentle peer pressure of three groups:
Seductive Studs & Sirens, Weekend Writing Warriors, and Snippet Sundays.
Three wonderful ways for readers and authors to find each other!
Thanks for reading!
And just as well it was brought too Chassy me dear.
Oooh, poor Jake! I wonder what caused the separation from his son.
Yeah, I wasn’t kidding when I said I torture my guys . . .
Thanks for commenting, Thianna!
I’m all behind, having dropped the snippetry while Camp Nanowrimo has been on. I can see I’ll have to catch up.
I wouldn’t be surprised if you hibernated for a month to recover from the whole A to Z deal! You-all made me tired just reading the posts, I can’t image committing to producing that much content in such a short time – very impressive. 🙂
I checked out last week’s snippet too. I’d love to know more about Jake. This sounds like a great story.
Good set up for what follows.
Well, this is interesting. He’s very anxious about meeting someone…but kissing another man…I feel a 3-way coming on!!
So Jake and Antonio already know each other? Interesting . . .
I could really sense the trepidation here…the nervousness. Nice snippet, Charley.
I love the subtle under currants in this snippet. It’s lovely.
Good use of movement to underscore the emotion. Thanks for sharing!
Interesting, I liked the tone of the conversation, implies SO much more to learn! Great snippet.
Looking forward to more!
I love your comment about gentle peer pressure. it’s a wonderful force, isn’t it? I am grateful for it every week. Glad to find you through Snippet Sunday as well as Seductive Sirens!
Yes! It’s much harder to “forget” to post after I’ve signed up, or promised to share every week on FB. 🙂
Thanks, I’m glad too — looking forward to reading your book about the violinist!
Nice easy flow to the dialogue. Well done!
Is this one of those situations where Jake and Antonio are long-time friends and Jake never suspects that Antonio is secretly in love with him? Or are they just good friends? Nice snippet, Charley. Definitely makes me want more…8 sentences just isn’t enough, lol.
Thanks, everyone, for visiting. I appreciate the time you spent reading, and your comments & shares. Snippet sharing weekends are so much fun! 😀
