Hello everyone! Thank you for visiting me today for Weekend Writing Warriors! I'm sharing another snippet from RET, the third book in my Kaddim Brothers series, which is now available!
Snippet setup: Last weekend's snippet showed Ret coming back from the bar, using Ilam as an excuse. He was also thinking about Ilam in ways that he never had before. (Or so he believes.) I'm skipping ahead to Chapter Four, when Ret is back at the dorm. This is in Ilam's point of view. Enjoy!
I eyed Ret from the doorway of my room, not understanding why he’d returned from the club early. And alone. Again. His face wasn’t that red this time, meaning he hadn’t had much to drink. “Are you sick?”
He chuckled as he placed a bottle of chirof and two shot glasses on the table. “Not at all. I simply want a chance to honor the shining star of our team. You never come out, so I decided to bring the celebration here.”
Glancing around, I tried to figure out how this was a celebration. We were the only ones in the dorm. Seemed a little too intimate to me. Not once had we ever done anything together without at least one other member of our team, whether eating, training, or working out.
Ret sat on the couch and patted the cushion beside him. “Come. Sit down and have a drink with me.”
Kaddim Brothers book three
Ret Kaddim has the perfect life. He’s a space racer, the leader of the most popular team across the universe. Always planning, practicing, and racing, he has no time for a relationship, but finds plenty of willing partners who agree to his one-night-only rule. Because there is no way he wants to end up in a relationship and stuck with a family like his younger brothers. He’s having too much fun for that.
Ilam Nairan always dreamed of becoming a space racer. And thanks to a chance encounter with a retired racer, he is now living that dream. Far away from the mated and pregnant omega life his parents wanted him to have, he loves everything about his life. It’s perfect.
But one night can change everything. Especially when too much alcohol is involved. Can these two teammates survive the resulting media storm? What will it mean for their careers? The future of the team? And for them?
Ret is a sweet with knotty heat mm non-shifter mpreg sci-fi romance featuring an alpha space racer and an omega space racer who both believe they’ll always be single, snarky but loveable teammates, lots of space racing, endearing family members, an adorable baby, and a guaranteed happily ever after. If you enjoy teammates realizing they have feelings for each other, and all the obstacles those bring, be sure to download Ret today!
RET is now available!

Sounds like Ret doesn't open up much around others, or is it just with Ilam that he's on his guard so much?

It's not just Ilam. Ret doesn't open up around anyone. Though his family members know him a little better, as is evident later in the story.

Things are about to get interesting.

Oh, they definitely are!

I like where this is apparently going! Great snippet...

I reckon that drink might turn into something a little more than expected!

It's obvious that something is up with Ret, but Ilam doesn't get it yet. I do think things will very soon be clearer to him.
10/17/2022 08:49:35 am
Or maybe even more confusing...

Now this looks promising. If only Ilam will play along. He seems rather skittish. I bet Ret will take care of that--if the liquor doesn't. Can't wait to read more!
