Welcome back to My Sexy Saturday. This is where writers post either 7 words, 7 sentences or 7 paragraphs from their published work or work in progress, sticking to the week’s theme. This week’s theme is our sexy life. I’m sharing an excerpt from my brand new paranormal erotic romance novel, Pack of Lies. This excerpt is a little bit spoilery, so if you don’t want any indication of what happens at the end of the book – maybe skip this post 😉
Beside him, Matthew shifted in his seat. “Guys, I’m sorry but I’m going to have to get back to work.”
Turning to acknowledge him, Isaac saw the shit-eating grin on his brother’s face and realized he’d been well and truly set up. Whether Leah was in on it too, he had no idea, but it was clear Matthew was attempting to play the part of matchmaker. Presumably that meant that Jonas batted for the same team as him.
Glancing at Jonas, then back at Isaac, Matthew gave him a meaningful look. “See you later.”
Yeah, Isaac thought as he smiled politely at Leah, then turned back to the eager-looking young man who’d just invited him out for coffee, you bloody well will.
He’d been burned so badly last time that he wasn’t in any hurry to jump back into the dating game just yet, but when he was, Jonas would be a damn good candidate. Attractive, smart and worldly for his age. And to paraphrase his brother, the fact that he wouldn’t have to keep his secret from Jonas was a huge plus point.
It was still January, so he decided it wasn’t too late to make a New Year’s resolution. He didn’t normally bother, hadn’t for decades. But this time it was different. Last year had been horrific, so it was up to him to make sure this one was better. Much better. And deep down, something was telling him that Jonas would be playing a big part in that.
I resolve to let go of the past, look to the future and allow myself to love again.
