Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!
Thank you to all those who visited last weekend! This weekend, I'm returning to sharing snippets from VAWN, the first book in my Sci-Fi MPreg MM Romance series, KADDIM BROTHERS. This story releases August 9, 2021, and is available for pre-order now!
Set-up: In the last snippet I shared from VAWN, Vawn was walking along with his brothers, but was distracted by a sexy space racer who was working out. That racer happened to be Ojokun. And once again, his brothers were trying to keep Vawn away from Ojo.
This weekend I'm going to continue from where I left off. Ret, Vawn's oldest brother, who is also a space racer and the captain of the team Ojo is on, speaks first. Enjoy!
“He only does one-night stands. He’ll never commit. And you have a daughter at home you have to think about.”
I yanked my hand away from him. “How dare you think you can control any aspect of my life, especially who I sleep with. I have done everything for my daughter, and this is the first time I have ever been away from her, the first time I have ever put myself first since I learned I was pregnant. Whereas you have always put yourself first, followed your dreams while not worrying about everyone you left behind.” We often fought, as siblings do, but he’d taken this too far. He had no right to lecture me. Not when he’d only been home once in the past three years and was usually too busy to chat for long when we did get ahold of him.
Kaddim Brothers book one
Vawn doesn’t need a mate. He’s already established himself universe-wide as a hot name in fashion, while raising his daughter. But he won’t say no to a fling with a hot space racer when he travels to Eurebly to visit his brothers. One night. That’s all he can give. Because his heart shattered when he lost his previous alpha, and he hasn’t been able to repair it completely. He refuses to love someone like that ever again.
Ojokun survived on Jenegath in order to leave the planet and become the best space racer in the universe. Though he flies with a team, he’s never depended on anyone outside of his jet. He keeps to himself. Has one-night stands, just like every other space racer. But, after a mind-blowing night with the brother of two of his teammates, he can’t stop thinking about the gorgeous omega, or the foreign longing that scares him more than his overly-protective teammates.
Can Ojokun convince Vawn that he wants more than one night? Or is that all they were ever meant to be?

Ah, sibling rivalry -- fertile ground for authors.ReplyDelete
Yes, it's fun to include in stories every now and again.Delete
Oh, I have mixed feelings about this. What is Ret's real motivation for wanting to keep Vawn from getting entangled with Ojo? That might be at the crux of this sibling tiff going on. :-) Good snippet!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Teresa! Ret and Ojo have always had tension between them. But, Vawn does figure out why later on.Delete
Not having any siblings - I can't relate that way - but having witnessed several sibling spats - this sounds very realistic.ReplyDelete
Oh, there are so many reasons why siblings can go at it. I only have one sibling, but, like you, have observed so many other sibling spats.Delete
Oh those sibling issues! But good stuff for a novel...enjoyed the snippet.ReplyDelete
Definitely! Thank you, Veronica!Delete
Right - his brother butting in unnecessarily. Maybe he only wants one hot night.ReplyDelete
Ret thinks he's helping, even if Vawn tells him otherwise.Delete
So many people, family in particular, don't understand the concept of refraining from giving unsolicited advice or suggestions! Particularly about such personal matters.ReplyDelete
That is very true! Sometimes they mean well, but don't always know all the details of what's going on.Delete
Sound like his brother is really overstepping his bounds.ReplyDelete
Vawn believes so, but Ret believes he's trying to protect his brother.Delete
He really let his brother have it, didn't he? Perhaps the brother deserves it.ReplyDelete
Oh, these two aren't done yet.Delete
