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.
Set-up: In the last snippet I shared from VAWN, Ojo was ready to go after Vawn regardless of what anyone else thought. But plans don't always go the way you want them to.
This weekend I'm skipping a few paragraphs, but continuing with the same scene in Ojokun's point of view. Enjoy!
“May I have this next dance?”
Fuck, the friend dude got to Vawn first. As tempted as I was to shove him out of the way, I also didn’t want to harm anyone else on the crowded dance floor in the process. Instead, I turned around and decided to wait.
As I pushed through the throng of people, someone hooked their arm around mine. “Where are you going?”
I was prepared to tell the person off until I realized it was Vawn. “I…I thought you were dancing.”
“Well, I was going to dance some more, but the guy I really wanted to grind with was too afraid to ask me to dance.” He pressed his body to my side and rested his chin on my shoulder. “I decided to get a drink instead. Does your offer still stand?”
**And a little bit more...**
“I don’t know. You sure you don’t want a drink from Laup’s friend?” I tried to act indifferent, but I wasn’t sure how well I pulled it off.
“Trog?” He pulled away. “Well, I wanted to get to know you a bit better, but if you’re going to be an ass about it, maybe I will join him for a drink.”
“No!” I stepped in front of Vawn to stop him from walking away. Fuck, I already screwed this up. “I will buy you a drink. As many as you want. You don’t need to ask anyone else.”
He poked his finger into my cheek. “Now you want to get me drunk and take advantage of me?”
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?
Available in e-book & paperback!

What a tease! I'm cheering for them as a couple already.ReplyDelete
Vawn is definitely a tease! Thank you, Nancy!Delete
Yes. Yes, he does want to get him drunk and take advantage of him.ReplyDelete
I don't think there will be any taking advantage of when they're both very willing. 😉Delete
Vawn is definitely a cheeky devil! But Ojokun really needs to get his head in the game.ReplyDelete
That he is. Ojo is usually good at the game, but he's more flustered around Vawn.Delete
Is it wrong to enjoy how flustered Ojo is around Vawn?ReplyDelete
LOL No, it's not wrong. I think it's quite cute.Delete
Great snippet! That Vawn--what a tease. He's leading Ojo around like he has him on a leash. lol Congrats on the release!ReplyDelete
Forgot to add, no snippet for me this week. My husband had surgery that turned out to be more serious than anticipated.Delete
