It's been some time since I joined in with Rainbow Snippets, but today I'm here with a snippet from my latest release, Corporate Bodies.
A little context: Jake and Oliver have had dinner, now they are back at Oliver's where Jake is studying his boss' (yes, Oliver is his boss) book collection...
Oliver looked down at the book in Jake's hand. A book he'd had since he was a teenager, read over and over again throughout the years, pages turned so often they had started to fall out only to be stuck back in, the tape that reattached them now brittle and yellow.
Oliver reached for the book, his hand brushing Jake's, all his awareness and focus on the man standing just inches from him. Every draw of Jake’s breath, every pore of his skin, every strand of auburn hair, the deep, rich colour of chestnuts. And the heat of him, Oliver could feel the heat from Jake's skin, he swore he could.
Silence wrapped itself around them. Jake turned his head and Oliver stared into grey eyes turned black, the pupils blown so wide they devoured the irises, leaving only the merest hint of colour. Unnoticed, the book slipped from their hands, and fell to the floor. As their lips joined in a long, slow kiss Oliver had no idea who it was who made the first move, only glad that the move had been made.
There are so many great snippets on the Rainbow Snippets FB page, so hope over and take a look by clicking the button :-)
