Hump Day Hook!

humpdayhookThis is a weekly blog hop that happens every Wednesday–Hump Day–where authors can showcase and share their work. Find other delightful hooks HERE.

This week’s hook is the opening paragraphs to my newest release WITHOUT AIDEN.

* * * *

WithoutAiden_ByDianneHartsock-200x300Tris jolted back to the moment when the apartment door suddenly opened in his face. The blood rushed from his heart and roared in his ears. Aiden leaned against the door frame and Tris’s hungry gaze ran over his slim body, his mouth going dry at the soft line of curls disappearing into the tattered shorts sitting low on Aiden’s hips. He jerked his attention back to Aiden’s eyes, meeting his intense blue gaze.

Something flickered in the lovely depths, then Aiden’s lids narrowed. “Tris?”

Tris swallowed, mortified at the thought that Aiden would see the erection pushing against his jeans as his body screamed for its lover’s touch. God! This was harder than he’d thought it would be. He coughed to clear the lump in his throat.

“I brought you…” Tris winced as his voice cracked. Fucking wuss! He straightened his spine and lifted the bright package. “I wanted to bring this by before you started your day. Happy Birthday, Aiden.”

    So emotional! Poor Tris, he’s trying so hard to look strong. I hope Aiden doesn’t break his heart. Interesting that Tris thinks of Aiden as his lover, yet they don’t seem to be together. Did they split…is he having trouble letting go? I’m intrigued. Great hook!
