Happy Caturday Snippetteers!
This will be my last snippet from Torque. I have an event coming up on March 30 (besides blowing out candles :)) and will switch over to snippets from the next two books in the Buchanan House series to get ready for it.
The snippet below is from the same scene as last week’s, where Mercy found Mick fixing the Bug on the side of the road. Things have happened since then and Mercy’s just told Mick about the day she realized she wanted to present as female all the time.
He wasn’t floored by the revelation even though he probably should’ve been. He’d never known anyone who would dare talk about “wanting to be a girl”. Now that he thought about it, he’d never considered that anyone born with a dick would feel that way. After only a fraction of a second Mick decided it didn’t matter at all. Nothing had changed. He still wanted her. And still wished he didn’t.
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.
Contains references to abuse, subversive ideas about sexual identity and gender expression, and a free-range bisexual on a mission.
