Rainbow Snippets 3/24

Rainbow Snippets – Jodi Payne

It’s snippets day! Today’s snip is from a holiday story I’m writing called A Whole Latke Love. Matt is an attorney attending his office holiday party, and Ethan is a former one night stand that turns out to be catering the event. Oops. Or is there more to them than one night after all?

Ethan watched Matt leave, watched that dreamy ass walk out of the room, feeling like he’d finally drawn the winning lotto number… like he’d just won BINGO the hard way. If this were Atlantic City, there’d be nickels pouring out of his slot machine right now.

Fuck, yes.

That incredible lay from a month ago, the one he couldn’t get out of his mind, the one that he’d gone back to that bar six times to find again… That sweet, hot guy just showed up out of fucking nowhere.

Even better, Matt wanted to get together again. He was so getting laid tonight.

Have a great week!

If you don’t know, Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction. It can be a work-in-progress, a finished work or even a six-sentence book recommendation. 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+.
