Good afternoon, Snippeteers. This snippet comes from the first story in my Barista Boys series, Danny & Jude. It's still going through final editing, and the wonderful Meredith Russell is producing the cover art for me, but it won't be long before these boys are unleashed on the world.
Poor Jude, getting the rough end of the stick again...
The ring was cheap and nasty. Jude deserved so much better: a better ring, a better man, a better life. Jude accepted whatever crap was doled out to him, and he was doing it again. If there was any gold in it, Danny was a virgin.
Three bits of glass, which tried to pass themselves off as diamonds, were glued along the top. It looked like something out of a Christmas cracker. A cheap, budget-range Christmas cracker. The thought made Danny’s stomach clench down even more, and the volume dial crank up in his head. Jude was worth so much more than this gaudy rubbish, but he didn’t see that. He never saw.
