Hola, Snippetteers and welcome to my Rainbow Snippets post!
I’m feeling a smidge over halfway human today so I’m considering that nasty flu beaten! We’ll see how that shakes out over the course of the day. 😉
Since Torque releases in two days, I’m going to snippet from it today. This is from Chapter One; Mick has just met Scotty, and to say he’s captivated would be an understatement.
Scott scanned the list of parts and a slow smile crept across his face. It held more than a little mischief and Mick fought the urge to adjust his jeans. The guy seemed unaware of how he affected Mick, which was just as well. No reason to let a handsome face get in the way of twelve dollars an hour. If Bell’s Auto Wrecking happened to have a few parts he needed too, so much the better.
“Most of these cars are along the north fence.” Scott turned those light green eyes on his face again and Mick reminded himself the naughty glint had nothing to do with him.
Thanks for reading!
Don’t forget to head back to the Rainbow Snippets FB Group, where you’ll find links to more snippets of queer fiction from new and established authors. You might find historical fiction, YA, something sweet or something spicy, but the common thread is that all main characters will identify as LGBTQ+.
Torque by Charley Descoteaux
Sometimes letting things get complicated is the best way to figure it all out.
Mick Randall is on the run, from the biker culture he grew up in and his impossible vision of love. Alaska should be far enough to escape his old life—until he rolls into a wrecking yard and gets lost in a pair of pale, bottle-green eyes.
Scotty Bell has spent years learning to channel his fiery temper into the heat of a welding torch. His sexual heat has always been slower to ignite, but one look at Mick rouses confusion alongside desire. In all his life, he’s only been attracted to one other person—his best friend, Mercy Taylor.
Mick lands a temporary job at the yard, and finds an uneasy crash pad at Scotty’s place…where the ragged ends of his emotions get tangled up in Scotty and Mercy’s relationship.
But when Mick hears a Harley engine from his past bearing down on him, his first instinct is to go back to the half-life he’d been living. Lest his secrets destroy the only two people who’ve ever made him feel whole.
