Ash returns home after a week of promotions in this snippet from HIS OMEGA ON STAGE #Romance #PNR #MPreg #Omegaverse #MLM #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I've been sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE, which will release through Decadent Publishing. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance. I'll keep you posted when I know anything about a release date.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, I shared Jun's reaction to Ash's confession. And you got to see that they have a bit of a history, even though they never talked to each other back in high school.

In this weekend's snippet, I'm skipping ahead. In the rest of the chapter I'd shared, Jun and Ash agreed to try friendship before anything else, as Jun is still concerned about Ash's hectic schedule and him being in the spotlight. Now, Ash has just returned to his apartment after a week of promotions for his new album, of interviews, performances, and sleeping for small amounts of time when he got the chance. This is his first time home since the night he talked with Jun....


I entered my apartment and set my keys and messenger bag on the console table in the entryway. Somehow I made it to my bedroom, but I don’t remember walking there. Had I dozed on my way? Knowing I was finally home had brought on the tiredness I’d managed to hold off on the ride there. And I was ready to simply crash onto my bed without even changing.

A good plan until I caught the scent of pine and allspice. Faint, but enough to give me a jolt of energy. I searched my room for the source, finding the scent on the hoodie I’d changed into after my signing, the one I’d worn when I’d met up with Jun. I grabbed the hoodie from the back of my chair, held it tight in my hands, and took a big sniff.

**That's nine, but here's a little more for your reading pleasure.**

Ahhhh. Invigorating, yet comforting at the same time. I couldn’t believe the material still held onto his scent after a week.

That night had been like a dream come true to my younger self, especially the kiss at the end of the night. Though not exactly where I’d hoped to feel those lips.

Shit. I hadn’t texted him since that night. He’d texted me back the next day, but I hadn’t had any communication with him since then, had barely even been on my phone.

No matter how tired I was, I needed to text him. How were we supposed to even be friends if I didn’t stay in contact? But it was late. He’d probably be finished work. But would he be asleep? Or maybe he was with someone else. An omega. The idea made my stomach twist.

Yet, I had no claim on him. And he definitely hadn’t claimed me, no matter how many times I’d fantasized about that happening. I’d have to settle for being his friend for now, or nothing at all.


HIS OMEGA ON STAGE
Shifter Towers book four

Jun
For leopard cat shifter, Jun, being the rogue alpha in high school hadn’t helped him as an adult. Though he sometimes believed he was ready to find a mate, past experiences taught him that those he loves eventually leave him. So, he protects his heart by seeing omegas looking for nothing more than a one-night stand. Until he runs into someone from his past.

Ash
As the first omega signed to Adan Records, AI is anxious for the release of his debut album. Being a leopard cat shifter instead of an actual leopard like the rest of his family has always made him feel small and insignificant. But now he’s about to shine bright in front of the world, all on his own, without an alpha by his side. He doesn’t need one, and definitely doesn’t have time for one. Though when he runs into someone from his past who knows him as Ash, he wants to give this alpha all of his attention.

On Stage
But with all the problems that fame brings, will Ash be able to make a relationship work? Will Jun fight for the omega he’s sure is his fated mate? Or will they just let each other slip away, believing what they have just isn’t enough?

COMING SOON!

Jun reacts to Ash's confession in this snippet from HIS OMEGA ON STAGE #romance #MLM #MPreg #PNR #omegaverse #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I've been sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE, which will release through Decadent Publishing. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance. I'll keep you posted when I know anything about a release date.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Ash finally confessed that he had a crush on Jun in high school, and was hoping to have something with him now.

In this weekend's snippet, Jun reacts to Ash's confession.


Oh shit. I hadn’t expected that at all. I mean, I was surprised anyone noticed me. I wasn’t an alpha that many, if anyone, paid attention to. Not anymore. As an adult, what did I have going for me? Sure, I had a job, but it just covered my own bills. Didn’t leave any room to support anyone else.

I reached forward and rubbed my thumb across the blush on his cheek. “How could anyone not notice you?”

**That's ten, but here's a little more of Jun's reaction and a bit of backstory.**

He glanced up. “But back in high school—”

“Back in high school, I spent most of my day trying to go unnoticed.” I released a heavy breath. “Because when I was noticed, it was usually by jocks who were bigger and stronger than me.”

“Like my brother,” he mumbled.

“Yeah.” Nex was the worst of them all.

“I’m sorry for that.” He picked at a piece of lint on his pants. “He knew I liked you, and I think that made things worse.”

Ash finally confesses in this snippet from HIS OMEGA ON STAGE #romance #PNR #MPreg #omegaverse #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! I've been sharing snippets from the fourth book in my Shifter Towers series, HIS OMEGA ON STAGE, which will release through Decadent Publishing. Like all the other books in this series, it is an MM paranormal romance. I'll keep you posted when I know anything about a release date.

Set-up: In last weekend's snippet, Ash tries subtly flirting with Jun, but Jun still has his reasons for ignoring his actions.

In this weekend's snippet, Ash is ready to spell it out to Jun exactly how he feels. But is Jun ready to hear it?

(*FYI, Ash's stage name is AI, as in Artificial Intelligence. That's why his fandom name is bots.)


“What, that they think I’m your alpha?” I wouldn’t say cute. More like dangerous for an omega just beginning his career in the public eye.

“Yeah.” He ran his palm across my thigh. “Would that be such a bad idea?”

I removed his hand. Though I fought my leopard cat the whole time, I knew how dangerous taking his actions any farther could be. “You said you don’t have time for a relationship. Besides, I don’t think all of your fans would be happy about it.” The option of a one-time fuck was there, but I’d had enough of those to know they never left me satisfied. Besides, my leopard cat was too active for anything with Ash to be just once.

**That's nine, but I've got to get to Ash's confession.**

He moved away, turning to sit cross-legged while facing me. “I guess. Maybe. But the thing is....” He brushed a hand over his face. “I’m kind of embarrassed to say this.”

Embarrassed now? After he nearly scented me? Acted like we knew each other quite well when I hadn’t seen him for years? And even then we didn’t talk. “What is it?”

“I....” Glancing down, he played with the hem of his shirt. “Back in high school, I had the hugest crush on you. And I kinda thought, you know, now that I’m beginning to make a name for myself, that you’d actually notice me.”
