An awkward confession ~ Weekend Writing Warriors from GENJ #SciFiRomance #MMRomance #Romance

Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Hello everyone! Thank you to all those who came to visit me last weekend! This weekend, I'm sharing another snippet from GENJ, the second book in my Sci-Fi MPreg MM Romance series, KADDIM BROTHERS. I'm happy to announce this story has been contracted to Decadent Publishing and will likely release February 25, 2022. I'm looking for blogs to visit, so if you have any space around this day, please let me know. Thank you!

Set-up: Last weekend, Genj was at the spaceport, waiting for Utahn to arrive, and he was worried as to whether his crush would show up. Well, this weekend, we find out that Utahn did show up and get to see them together. Enjoy!

“How was the trip here?” I hoped small talk would help ease some of the awkwardness. I didn’t want the entire weekend to be like this.

“It was good.” He shrugged. “Pretty boring, really. The Olarian beside me slept the whole time, but I couldn’t. I was too anxious, I guess.”

“Were you afraid something would happen on the flight?” Because why else would he be anxious? Though, he’d flown on the spacecraft many times before.

Utahn nudged his shoulder against mine. “No, I was anxious to see you. I like you, and I really want this weekend to go well.”

“I want it to go well, too.” My cheeks warmed along with my groin. He’d finally admitted something my younger brother had told me a while ago. The guy I’d been crushing on for most of my life liked me, too. But did he mean as more than a friend? Or was I getting too far ahead of myself?

This is my mood board for Genj

Kaddim Brothers book two

Genj is a cinnamon roll alpha. Even as one of the circuit’s best space racers, he’s shy and rather clumsy. Not qualities anyone wants in a mate, especially the omega he’s crushed on for years. But when Genj invites Utahn on a whim to visit him for a weekend, he’s surprised the omega agrees.

Utahn never expected his best friend’s older brother to reciprocate his feelings. Genj is a space racer, and everyone in the universe knows they rarely commit. When the two get together, sparks fly. And what once seemed impossible becomes a dream come true.

But situations change. And past relationships have a way of interfering with new ones. Can Genj and Utahn work through past traumas, or were they never meant to be more than a childhood crush?

  1. They're moving forward nice and slow. Maybe building a romance that will last. :-)

  2. Such simple hope and affection in this dialog gives me the Feels. Love it! They're being themselves with each other and that's a great first step.

  3. I remember quite well the overthinking that goes along with a crush--the hoping, not knowing, second-guessing that is maddening, but can't be helped. You capture this so well in this snippet! Tweeted.

  4. Oh, he totally means it as more than a friend! He likes you-likes you! :D Great snippet!

  5. So sweet. It didn't dawn on him why Utahn was anxious.

  6. With all this doubt andd second-guessing, he is his own worst enemy!

  7. If it can be overthought, he will overthink it! But I loved the snippet...

  8. So sweet. I love his insecurity and Utahn's admission.

  9. This was a sweet excerpt. I'm glad they're getting a chance to spend some time together.
