RAINBOW SNIPPETS (1)Welcome to Rainbow Snippets! enjoy snippets from a cool group of writers and bloggers. You might find historical fiction, YA, something sweet or something spicy, but the common thread is that all main characters will identify as LGBTQIA+

Today, Paul resists temptation…

*  *  *

A mad lust turned Paul’s blood to fire, yet he hesitated. Bewilderment crossed Eran’s face, then color flushed his cheeks. “You don’t want to?”

“It’s not that.” Paul hauled the strong young body against him, kissing Eran over and over while his heart raced. “I absolutely want to,” he assured him emphatically. “You’re all my fantasies come true. But Eran, you’re bruised and hurt. You’re trying to hide it, but I hear the little moans you try to cover up. Besides, I think we have something special here. I’d like to slow down, get to know each other more intimately, before…”

Paul held his breath, hoping he hadn’t ruined everything…

Paul’s falling in love with the barista at the new-to-him coffee shop. He can’t help it. Eran’s shy smiles and heated gaze across the room is driving him wild.  Now to convince the beautiful, intelligent guy to go out with him.

But Eran’s shyness has been painfully earned. Physically and emotionally abused by his Father and then again by his sister’s brutish boyfriend, he’s wary of intimacy. He jumps at shadows, expecting violence, and is convinced he’s undeserving of anyone’s love.

Paul is determined to show him otherwise. In fact, his friend Shelton agrees that Eran is lovely enough to be a model, and that with a little confidence, he believes Eran can be anything he desires. With the help of a counselor and attending self-defense classes, Eran is making progress, but it just might take Paul’s love to uncover the bold, sexy man hiding inside him.
