The Seductive Studs Blog Hop is a weekly #bloghop for authors, readers, and bloggers of M/M Romance. Click on the blue froggy button located right below the snippet to hop around to this week’s other #SedStud posts. The posts should each include either: 100-150 word excerpt, review, or post about an M/M Romance in the works or already published.
The next scheduled release that I’m participating in is the Love Is Proud charity anthology by JMS Books authors. My contribution is Okay, Then, a very short story set in the timeline of the flashback scenes from ’Til Death Do Us Part, chronicling Sam & Henry’s first date while on a research trip together in the Solomon Islands.
This is from Henry’s 1st-person POV:
At the landing where I would turn left, and Sam would turn right, we paused, and Sam said, “Your shower or mine?”
He said it awkwardly as hell, and his face turned beet red, but I think the smile that split my face reassured him, because his grin emerged.
“Wherever you’ll be more comfortable.” I gave his hand an overdue press.
“Mine,” he replied without hesitation.
“Okay, then.” My words echoed his from our conversation yesterday, and his grin widened, perhaps remembering that himself.
I followed Sam to his room. Like mine it was in the older, cheaper wing of the hotel. The air conditioning worked, and there was running water. Those were about the best things I could say about our rooms. The bedding was clean, although the mattresses might be older than me. I supposed the painted cinderblock walls and tile floors were relatively easy to keep clean. The plumbing fixtures were ancient but functional. Housekeeping wasn’t overly concerned about mildew control.
