Another snippet from The Making Of Us. You can read the others here.
The Making Of Us is the fourth book in the Checking Him Out series, but it’s a stand-alone story about friendship, love and romance—LGBTQIA, with the emphasis on the B, Q and I.
The main characters are Jesse and Leigh, who first appeared in Taking Him On (Book Two), which is Noah and Matty’s story.
The Making Of Us is first-person, told from Jesse’s perspective.
I haven’t posted for a few weeks—been busy writing! :) I’m a couple of chapters and an epilogue from finished! Woot! But I’m a bit sad about that, too. I’m going to miss Jesse and Leigh when I’m done.
Here’s the snippet:
I stopped outside Leigh’s bedroom door and felt my stomach flutter at the sight. They hadn’t seen me, busy loosening off the laces in their Doc Martens.
“Hey,” I said.
Leigh paused and acknowledged me with a smile. “Hey.” Kicking off their boots, they beckoned for me to come in.
“How are you today?”
“Great! I got eighty on my first assignment.”
“Oh, wow. Well done, you!” That called for a celebratory kiss. And a hug. And another kiss. Heh, like we needed an excuse.

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–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.
