Happy weekend, Snippetteers! I’m going away today for a few days on one of my hiking and camping excursions, so I didn’t think I’d be able to snippet, but I was delighted to see the thread was already posted when I got up at 5am, so I have time to do my own snippet and catch up reading last week’s. I’ll be able to read a few more while I’m away as the campsite has wifi!
Anyway, I’ve been snippetting from Summit for quite a while now, and now it’s out in the big wild world, I thought I would post some teasers from something else. Favourite Toy was a self-pub about 3 years ago and I’ve started writing a sequel to that. The original story featured MC2, Casper, whom I named my puppy after when I got him 2 years ago. This is the first few lines from the original story, which has since been tweaked again, as I’m planning on a re-release, with the sequel to follow a bit later. MC is Dean and the story is from his point of view.

As I rolled over my arm brushed against warm flesh and I froze. Damn it, I’d almost fallen asleep. I never let myself stay the night with them. It was more difficult to shake them off if we woke up together, because I was invariably tempted into a repeat of what we’d done before we fell asleep. Then they asked for my number, or a date, or…
“Yeah. I’ve gotta go.” Inwardly cursing, I sat up and threw back the bed covers.
“It’s the middle of the night. Stay.” He placed his hand on the inside of my thigh and stroked upward.
“I have work tomorrow.” My traitorous cock twitched and I pushed his hand away. Shit, it was bad when I couldn’t even remember the guy’s name.
“On a Sunday?”
“Yeah, I work in a gym.”
Nice one, Dean. Giving away personal stuff.
“Oh cool. Which one?” He moved away a little and the bedside lamp flicked on, temporarily blinding me. I blinked rapidly and slid out of the bed, grabbing for my underwear.
“Um…” I mumbled unintelligibly and dragged on my boxer briefs.
“What was that?”
“Fitness First.” I didn’t usually outright lie, but if I told him I worked at Hercules, he’d know where to find me. If not, he could soon find it on the Internet.
