Stuck on Rewind #rainbowsnippets

RAINBOW SNIPPETS (1)Welcome to Rainbow Snippets! Here’s a little more of Ashton and Lance from my novella with Pride Publishing, Stuck on Rewind, coming March 15. Today, Ashton recalls a moment from high school…

Pre-order HERE!


 *  *  *

“Jesus, Lance. So do I, but I don’t whore myself out.”

Lance had looked at him as if Ashton had slapped him, got up, and had walked away without a word. But Ashton had never forgotten the tears in his best friend’s cornflower-blue eyes. He’d never brought up the subject again, but it had taken months for the hurt to leave Lance’s smile whenever they’d got together.

“I’m so sorry, honey,” he said now, knowing how important it was for Lance to feel accepted and how the opposite tore his fragile heart to shreds. Ashton scowled at the ceiling, angry once again that Lance’s family had never accepted him, though he was sweet and gentle, leaving Ashton to act the part of brother as well as friend.

Ashton has been in love with his best friend for years, watching him grow from a pretty high school boy to the gorgeous erotic dancer at the club where they both work. The problem is that Lance enjoys the attention of a variety of men while Ashton wants him for his very own.

After a day spent denying his attraction for Lance, standing by while their friend Trey openly flirts with him, Ashton decides it’s time to make his move or risk losing his man forever. Once Lance knows how he feels he’ll realize they should be together. Or is it already too late?

    So many changes of emotional pace in this snippet. Ashton doesn’t sound as though he’s helping himself much.

  9. Lovely hurt/comfort… I sense a healing path ahead

    I hope Ashton gets to be more than his friend and surrogate brother. It sounds like he’s really trying.
