Hello Snippetters! This week's snippet is from Whiskey and Moonshine, a sweet with heat, slow-burn romance.
Mal’s inner—much more rational—voice screamed, Twenty-four!
Not only was Colt, who was a mere twenty-four, about to become a representative for Mal’s whiskey empire, he and Mal were going to be spending a ridiculous amount of time together.
That wouldn’t really be an issue if Mal could take his eyes off the kid--man, he was a man.
He was freaking bloody twenty-four.
Mal was thirty-six. What the hell did one discuss with a twenty-four-year-old, drop-dead-gorgeous man? He wished he’d never seen Colt’s birthdate on his paperwork.
“Do I look okay?” Colt asked. He seemed a little shy and unsure all of a sudden.
Guilt assaulted Mal; he’d made Colt uncomfortable. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have been staring, but you look amazing. A whole new you. I like it very much.”
Colt glanced down and shrugged a bit, a slight blush covering his ears. “I shouldn’t have been staring either, so I guess we’re even?” He looked up, then away quickly.
Mal stopped himself from blurting the words “You were staring at me? Why?” Instead he smiled softly. “We’re both guilty. Our little secret.” He pushed his chair back and stood up. “I’ll get the rest of our dinner.”
“I’ll help.” Colt stood up so fast his chair nearly toppled over. Mal and Colt reached the sliding glass door at the same time, and Colt stopped seconds before running headlong into Mal. He stepped back quickly. “Sorry.”
“No need to be sorry.” Mal waved Colt through the door. “After you. I’d love some help.”
Colt blushed even more deeply and scooted through the door. Mal held the handle for a bit—one, two, three deep breaths—and then he followed Colt into the kitchen. His body definitely appreciated Colt, and accidentally colliding, feeling Colt’s lean body against his, even briefly, was a bonus.
