This week we have another snippet from As Natural As Breathing, my gay spanking romance that comes out this Wednesday! EEk! So happy:) And starting next Saturday right here, there will be a 2-week Book Blog Tour with excerpts, info and yes, giveaways!
Last week, I gave you a snippet about Christian’s doubts and confusion in dealing with his attraction to Logan. This week, just because I could not resist, I am giving you a little snippet from their second date. Logan is very easy to just be with and when they are alone, Christian can just relax and be, something he has never truly felt before. For this date, they are at Logan’s house watching Lord of the Rings.
The first thirty minutes of the film felt like any get-together with a friend. They talked, ate, and razzed the movie. Logan commented on how sexy Aragorn and Legolas were and also made some unsettling remarks about Gandolf’s feelings for Frodo. He had Christian laughing so hard he was practically crying.
After laughing so hard his stomach hurt, Christian turned to respond when he found him right there within kissing range. Without thinking he moved the two inches it took to press his lips against Logan’s. Immediately soft lips parted slightly and a hand wrapped itself around Christian’s neck, holding him still as Logan’s tongue teased his mouth open, darting in once again to dance with his own. Moaning, he wrapped his arms around the strong shoulders in front of him and gave himself over to the kiss.
UPDATE (7/3/2018) As Natural as Breathing was rewritten and republished by A Thia Thing in September 2017 – as such, the snippet could have changed.
For Christian Darringer, life isn't worth living. Just back from the Middle East—scarred and with permanent damage to one leg—he doesn't think anyone will want him for anything. He didn't plan on meeting someone he can’t stop thinking about. Pulled toward the startling younger man, he begins to question a lot of things—especially his sexuality. Not one to hide from a challenge, he plunges ahead only to find himself more than just attracted to Logan.
Logan Mannette has almost everything he ever wanted: loving parents, happiness, friends, and security. The only thing missing is the love of his life, a love just like his parents have. When he meets Christian at a party, everything changes. Instantly attracted, he does his best to help the sad man and quickly finds himself feeling more than he has ever felt before. Raised in a domestic discipline household, he holds that ideal as what he wants. His interest in spanking has become a fetish and when Christian admits he wants to be spanked, Logan believes he might have found the perfect man.
Just as everything begins for them, Christian's past intercedes and one of his brothers makes waves about him dating a man. When it lands Christian in the hospital, he is forced to reevaluate their budding romance. Being with Logan might feel as natural as breathing, but if it costs Christian everything he cares about, is this new relationship worth it?
