It’s that time again, kidlets! Time for LGBTQ authors and bloggers to share the good stuff on Seductive Studs & Sirens Saturday, and Snippet Sunday & Weekend Writing Warriors on Sunday! SS&S is growing, so I’m using that as an excuse to share a little more than 8 sentences this week (it can’t be because I’m too lazy to adjust the punctuation). Hopefully the other groups I’m taking part in will be okay with that.
This snippet picks up exactly where last week’s left off and gets us one step closer to the racy bits. We’re still in Antonio’s salon . . . .
“If you need someone to talk to you just call me, honey.” Antonio hugged Jake hard for a short moment and then released him and gave him a significant look. “We’ll get coffee.”
“Hope I didn’t tick off your neighbor by monopolizing his chair.”
Antonio grinned so loudly Jake had to turn away.
“I’m sure Mase didn’t mind. You know he gets all drooly over hard-bodied men with tattoos.” He traced the Celtic braid encircling Jake’s left biceps. “And you have tattoos. Mase! Mason, come over here and tell Jake you don’t mind he grabbed your seat.”
Thanks for reading!

Oooh! Loved this line “Antonio grinned so loudly Jake had to turn away.” So descriptive.
Love the sexy humor and undercurrents taking place. Mmmm, I can see where this is headed.
Hmm I wonder if Mase really does mind! Nice job, Charley!
Thanks for your comments, guys! I’m really looking forward to this release–the snippets are making the wait a little easier. 🙂
A loud grin – 😀 just brilliant.
Gd luck with the release. My blog is at your disposal, as ever.
Thanks! I’ll take you up on that, Elin. 😀
Jake seems like the shy one in this (pre)relationship. Unless they both think they’re just friends? I can’t wait to read the whole thing!
Thanks, Sarah! Jake’s a complicated guy — I hope you’ll come back for more snippets through May & see what happens next. 🙂
“Come tell Jake you don’t mind he grabbed your seat!” LOL! A lovely double entendre AND I could feel Jake CRINGE as his buddy waves Mason over. Jake’s praying for the earth to open up and swallow him.
*lol* I love that you felt the cringe! Thanks so much for your comment, that made my day. 😀
Great dialogue and description. I tweeted.
Thanks a million! I’m glad you stopped by. 😀
Oh, I’ll grab his seat any day! 😉
I wouldn’t mind that either — he’s a yummy Ewan McGregor-type . . . I loved having Jake running around in my head. 😀
Enjoyed the dialog, sounded so very true to life and FUN. I like where this all seems to be going – terrific snippet!
Loved “grinned so loudly.” Great bit.
Poor Jake. **Awkward moment” time. Liked the “grab your seat ” play on words at the end there. 🙂
