Rainbow Snippet June 24

ainbow Snippets is a 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 (no spoilers please!).


In this group you’ll find anything from romance and historical fiction to mystery and YA. The common thread is that every story’s main character identifies as LGBTQ+. The snippets could range from zero flames to full-on sexytimes, anything goes content-wise. The only rule is snippets will be 6 sentences long–one for each color in the Pride flag.

I would invite everyone to please come check out the Rainbow Snippets group, click on a link, read and comment on the writing available and get involved yourselves in this awesome exercise. The link to the group can be found HERE.  The following Snippet is from my newly released supermoto themed release, Racing the Sky, which can be found HERE!  From one of my favorite scenes in the story, here is this weeks snippet. 

Looking at the big man, who was watching him from the far end of the counter, Nicky gave a tense smile. 
“Could I, umm, have another slice of pie? Apple this time, please.”

The man laughed. “How about ice cream with that?”

“Sure. Maybe I’ll die of a sugar overdose.”

They were alone in the diner, save for the guy on the grill in the back.

“You know,” the man began, “there are some fun ways to burn off sugar, if you’re interested. I get off in an hour.”

Nicky shivered, partly in fear and partly in anticipation. He could say yes, easy. Hell, it wasn’t as if Terry had even waited for them to break up before he’d moved on to someone else. Still, Nicky had never been with anyone but Terry, and this was a stranger, even if he was friendly as hell.


“Think about it,” the guy said before he headed to the back.

  2. It's going to be interesting to see what he decides.

    (And you seriously need to write another Guitars and... book. I wanna know what's up with the brother (Michael?) that won't talk to them.)

    1. Right now, I'm planning out Guitars and Canvasses, which will be very Alexia Centric, and I'm working on notes for Guitars and Consequences, which will be Cole's, but more about Michael will come in both books. :)

  3. I can't decide if he's about to overthink this or under-think it, LOL. Either way, that's one heck of an offer.

  5. I think he's smart to be cautious, but sometimes you have to take risks. Great snippet, Layla. :)

  6. Loved this. Nicky should be careful. Rebound/revenge sex is always a bad idea, not to mention he knows nothing about this guy. I get the feeling, though, he isn't going to care about any of that :D
