Hello Snippetteers and welcome! It’s nice to be back after deadlines and Pride monopolizing most of my last two weekends. I’m looking forward to making the reading rounds later. 🙂
In honor of almost having the cover art completed for BH#4 I’ll be snippetting from that story today. We’re in Brandon Smith’s POV, he’s at a communal table at Buchanan House having dinner—sitting next to someone else readers of the series will recognize. Bran has just asked how long Kyle stayed on the beach after he was called away earlier that afternoon.
Sorry if that intro is overly cryptic—the snippet is edited, so there’s that. 😉
“About another hour or so. The wind picked up, or I would’ve finished this—” Kyle leaned over and swiped the screen twice to reveal the side where the dragon had been. He had gotten a friend. The dragon was cool, a little cartoony but not too silly, and when Kyle paged through the pictures, he also leaned against Brandon’s arm. The silvery-gray shirt was thin, and Bran felt the lines of a muscular chest beneath it. Kyle was slender but obviously not skinny—still, Bran hadn’t expected him to have defined pecs any more than he’d expected Kyle to press them against his arm. A quick glance said Kyle knew exactly what he was doing, and the effect it had on Brandon. After a sweet, lingering moment in which Bran’s face pointed at the screen but his mind was full of the desire to run his hands over Kyle, to feel the hard body beneath what was probably a soft and touchable shirt, Kyle moved back into his chair.
Thanks for reading!

Methinks Kyle knows exactly how to bait a hook…
Haha, one of the advantages to maturity–you learn how to get things done. 😉
Yes, definitely a sweet moment…:)
I can feel the emotion between them just in those few short sentences. Love it.
I really like the descriptions in this.
very descriptive and cozy
“…Kyle knew exactly what he was doing…” << Ha! And Brandon's recognition of that fact won't change hurt Kyle's chances, either, will it?
A lovely sweet snippet
