Hola Snippetteers and welcome!
I hope you’re staying cool (or warm, depending on where you are) and enjoying life! Things are slowly getting back to normal here which is a relief because i have a lot of cool stuff coming up and don’t want to do any of it halfway.
I’m sharing from BH#6 again today–the last book in my Buchanan House series (that is still not finished). Last week I introduced Garrett and this week am rolling out a teaser for one of the big issues in the story. You can find previous snippets from this story here.
Nope. Not telling what it is but you’ll probably get it. 🙂
The first line of dialogue is a guy who works in an art supply store. He’s just recognized Chase’s name from his credit card and they chatted a little about art while the kid bagged his purchase. Standard warnings re: creative punctuation and unedited material apply.
“Say, if you’re free in a couple hours maybe we could grab a beer and talk about it.”
The kid’s look said talking was probably low on his priority list; Chase guessed the kid would have let him buy the beer though.
“Not free, but thanks.”
“I don’t see a ring.”
Is this what getting cruised is like now?
Chase shuddered but forced what he hoped was a friendly smile onto his face at the same time. “Not everyone who’s unmarried is free.”
Thanks for reading!

Nice last line. Love the flow of this snippet.
Thanks, PT! ❤
Oh, I love that last line! So true!
Temptation is everywhere! 😉
Hm, I wonder what made him shudder at the end there, other than perhaps not being particularly interested in the offer on the table.
A bit on the blunt side… no wonder it didn’t get him very far.
Loved that last line.
