Today, Cory lost himself in daydreams…
* * *
He flushed hotly when his classmates stood up around him, realizing his last class had ended without him hearing a word being said.
“Guess I’m a bit obsessed,” he confessed to his car as he climbed in, anxious to get back to the carnival. He didn’t understand this need he had to see Jules. And maybe that redhead… He’d never felt this strong of an attraction to anyone before, a pull that was irresistible. Alarms went off in his head and he laughed nervously. There was something not quite right about it, although he couldn’t be sure what. Jules would never hurt him.

Cory loves the carnival. Even as an adult, the lights and color, flashing rides, popcorn and cotton candy, all hold a special allure for him. Especially this year, when the men seem extraordinarily beautiful and Jules, the barker for the Mirror Maze, ran away with his heart from the moment Cory first saw him in his purple-satin and leather uniform.
For Jules, the carnival is life, the other carnies his family, friends, lovers. He can’t think of anywhere else he’d rather be. But the carnival has a secret that, if found out, could bring an end to their ideal existence. What with falling in love with a local man and a detective dogging their heels about the body found on the hill above the fairgrounds, his perfect life just might be changing, and he has no idea if it is for the better.
Sounds like he really zoned out. (Been there, done that, but with things much less intriguing than a carnival and a love interest.)
He was fantasizing… 🙂
Ohh, that last line felt a little ominous. ❤️
Yes it did 🙂
He’s trying very hard to convince himself…
He’s in love… sigh…
I don’t like the tone of that last line. Is he entirely sure about it?
Also, that is a gorgeous cover.
I love this cover too! And yay, Cory really needs to be careful…
That is such a beautiful cover! – Hm, I still think he should be careful maybe his instincts are trying to tell him something…
I think you may be right… maybe…
I love it so hard!
