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 Ilam playing a VR game when he punched someone. After taking the VR goggles off, he realized it was his team captain, Ret. And Ret's nose was bleeding pretty bad. I'm continuing this weekend from that spot. This is in Ilam's point of view. Enjoy!
Coddleswap, I was in trouble. I dropped the goggles and raced toward the first aid kit, peeling off the gloves on the way. I grabbed a cold pack and some gauze, not bothering to close the kit before returning to Ret.
Reaching for his hands, I tried to pull them away from his face, but it was a struggle. He twisted and turned, all wiggly, yet not letting me help him.
“Stop. You punched me in the face. I’m not letting you near me again.”
“Don’t be difficult.” I clutched his wrist and managed to pull one hand away. “What were you doing that close to me when I was playing the game? You know I can’t see you with the goggles on.”
**And a little more...
“I just wanted to say hello,” he whined, his breath reeking of alcohol.
I rolled my eyes. He was very drunk. “Stop talking for a moment.”
Ret finally dropped his hands, leaving me able to wipe his face while pinching the bridge of his nose to try and stop the torrent of blood.
Genj came out of his room, his eyes wide. “What happened?”
“Nothing. We’re good.” Even if the pools of red everywhere told a different story.
Ret shook his head, spraying more blood across the room. “How does this look like nothing? You punched 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!
