Rainbow Snippets – October 21 to 22

Happy Saturday, my dears!

I thought I’d do snippets from Joey’s brother Derrick’s story, Truck Me How I Like It. Derrick Choi is in the first person, and below is the opening scene.

If this guy moves any slower, I might just kill him.

I took a deep breath, willing myself to keep calm. I’d promised Adrian Mitchell, my boss at ConcreteXpress, that I would watch my temper. But this dude was pushing it.

I’d had run-ins with him before, and they had almost cost me my job. The forklift operator just knew how to push my buttons. It was as though he existed to make my life hell.

Rainbow Snippets – October 14 to 15

Hello, everyone!

While I said last week that there would be no more excerpts from “Truck Me Back to Normal,” I have had a request for a scene of them together.

Here it is, and yes, this is the final, final snippet from this story – enjoy! 🙂

“Joey, I get that you’re worried about being relationship material for…well, anyone. But you have to try sometime, right? I’m okay with it being fucking around to start with, if that’s what you need. I’m happy to go at whatever pace you want, in fact, as long as you don’t shut me out. Can’t we at least try to be friends? You need a friend, don’t you?”

I shook my head. “Bear, I don’t—”

He lifted a finger and pressed it against my lips. “I don’t, either. But maybe we can find out together, huh?” And then, he slowly pulled my traitorously willing body to his, and right there on a hot afternoon, with dirt on our clothes and grass in our hair, Bear kissed me, and I was lost.

Rainbow Snippets – October 7 to 8

Another weekend is here – the days went by fast, didn’t they?

Because I’m evil, this is my last posting from Joey’s story. 😀 Should you be interested in reading more, “Truck Me Back to Normal” is available at MLR Press. Not sure what I’ll post next week, but stay tuned!

In this final excerpt (over six lines for context), Joey has returned from spending time with his brother Derrick (from the story “Truck Me How I Like It”). Joey stumbles upon Bear, naked from the waste up. Yumm.

As I rounded the corner of the horse barn, I stopped, cold. There before me was Bear, shirtless and sweaty, pounding a nail with a hammer as he repaired a portion of the fence that housed the pigs. I had to take a deep breath and close my eyes for a minute so I wouldn’t jump the man.

Fuck, he glistened in the afternoon sun, rock hard muscles and tanned skin bare and just…scrumptious. When Bear worked with us during the week, he always wore a shirt. This was frickin’ spectacular. When I felt I had myself mostly under control, I walked toward him and cleared my throat, not wanting to startle him.

“Afternoon, Mr. Lancett,” I said, and he looked up, surprised.

“Joey…I mean, Mr. Choi. You’re back early.” He put down the hammer and quickly donned the shirt that I now saw had been thrown over an open red toolbox.

Shame.

Rainbow Snippets – September 30 and October 1, 2017

Morning, all!

It’s a tiny bit cooler here in Atlanta. Can’t wait for winter…because winter is COMING! (LOL, couldn’t help a G.O.T. reference).

Continuing from last week from “Truck Me Back to Normal,” published by MLR Press.

“Have a seat, Mr. Choi,” Bear said. “We don’t stand on ceremony here.”

“Thank you, sir.”

Meg snickered. “You’re both so formal with each other. I think it’s cute.”

“Enough, Meg,” Bear growled, just like his nickname implied, before pulling out a chair for his sister at the table.

Happy Saturday!

It’s peaceful and sunny here in Atlanta, except for the car alarm nearby that just won’t stop…sigh.

Good news, though. My newest e-book “Purple Daze” was just published by JMS Books. Woot! 😀

Today, we  continue from last week’s excerpt where Joey encounters Bear in the kitchen. From “Truck Me Back to Normal,” published by MLR Press.

“Morning, Mr. Choi,” Bear greeted me before helping his sister place the food on the table.

“Morning, sir,” I replied.

“His name is Joey, Bear. Why don’t you call him that? You know you want to.” Meg winked at him and he ignored her.

Rainbow Snippets September 16 to 17

Hi, all!

Hubby and I rode out Tropical Storm Irma and came away unscathed, for which we are thankful. Many people in the metro area are still waiting for power, but hopefully that will be taken care of by the end of today or tomorrow.

Also, this past Wednesday was our 19th anniversary! The fact that hubby has put up with me this long still amazes me. LOL!

As for today’s snippet, Joey is in the kitchen with Meg, Bear’s stepsister, waiting for breakfast. He encounters a different version of Bear that leaves him speechless. 😀 From “Truck Me Back to Normal,” published by MLR Press.

Weekday Bear was all about work—stiff, polite, stern. But weekend Bear? The man could out-flame fire. He wore a T-shirt that on a  smaller man would have been ordinary, but on Bear, not quite. It was well worn, with holes here and there that gave me a peek of hot skin I wanted to taste. It molded to his massive chest like it was a part of him. He wore old gym shorts that showcased legs like tree trunks. I wanted to wrap myself around them and hump. Shit, I needed to get myself under control.

I focused on my coffee, happy that my short-sleeved shirt was long enough to cover my groin and save me from embarrassment. This had never happened to me before.

Rainbow Snippets September 9 to 10

Morning, all!

To those of you in the path of Irma / Jose, I hope you’re as safe and sound as you can be. We will likely get tropical storm strength winds and rain, which means flooding and falling trees since we’ve been dry for a while, in Atlanta.

Hubby is on his way to the farmers’ market to stock us up before the shelves are emptied. For those of you who asked, yes, my husband loved his present! So now, when his legs, knees, and back give him trouble, he has the option to use motorized two-wheeled transport, but otherwise, he’ll still putter around on his bicycle, or use public transit. We are a car-less family. 🙂

Here’s more from Joey in “Truck Me Back to Normal,” published by MLR Press.

That night, as I lay in bed, I thought again about Barrimore Lancett. Bear. He was a man and a half, wasn’t he? Not once had he cracked a smile, but he had dimples cut into his cheeks, so I bet his grin would be spectacular. I wondered what it would take to make him laugh. I doubted I’d ever find out.

By nine o’clock the next morning, every muscle in my body ached, and I’d discovered the aroma of cow shit.

Not my favorite.
