Hey there! It’s Saturday, so it’s time for another #RainbowSnippets 🙂
Now, in case you didn’t know, #RainbowSnippets is a Facebook group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation.
I’ve done a little experiment, to see how addicted to Facebook I really am. I deleted the app off my phone this week, and put the Kindle app in it’s place. Do you know how much I’ve read this week? Holy crapola LOL I’m /shocked and appalled/ at how much of a time-suck it is, but I’m also digging these books I’m reading. Makes for a happy Kiska, indeed.
Today, I’ve got a couple lines from Defying Gravity (Love By Chance #2) which is Lazarus’s book, for those of you who’ve read Little Infinities. Apollo and Seb were never supposed to kick-start a series, but my brain is a fickle mistress and after meeting Lazarus, I knew he’d have a book of his own.
I was a sucker for pound puppies, it seemed—and it didn’t hurt that he was cute. Definite eye candy.
But that’s all he can be, I told myself firmly, stopping those thoughts dead in their tracks before they multiplied like bunnies and I found myself tangled up in sheets with Bex in my bed. Fuck.
No. That couldn’t happen. I knew I was having some sort of weird mid-life crisis, with my thirties looming closer and more daunting than ever, but hooking up with a college kid wasn’t a good idea.
Even if he was cute.

Oh, boy. This is good. Best wishes on publishing! And thank you for sharing.
LOL! Thirties are “midlife”? 😀 Cute snippet.
LOL- “sucker for pound puppies” what a great line and aren’t we all? Wonderful snippet.
Ah, to be young and stressing about 30s “looming” instead of getting smaller and smaller in the rearview mirror! 😄
Intriguing description! Enjoy your reading…alas, social media can be a time vampire. (wry grin)
Good luck with that, buddy. 😀
Loved his inner monologue even if I wanted to punt him for thinking 30 is mid life crisis time.
