Sandra Bunino, for hosting this event every week!
Welcome to my Mid Week Tease, and this week I'm going to share with you an excerpt from my newest release, Misunderstandings, from JMS Books. It's a M/M contemporary romance, and here is the blurb:
Being insecure isn’t good for Parker Williams’ image as an indie movie
actor, but he can’t help it. He seems to forget that he snatched an
Oscar from the one hit movie he made, and he keeps comparing himself
with the success of his boyfriend Declan, who is a blockbuster star.
Things get worse when Parker sees how close Declan is to his sexy
costar, Ryan Dexter.
Parker thinks he’s no match for Ryan and
leaves without confronting Declan. When he disappears, a worried Declan
tries to contact him without result. Then he finds Parker’s cell phone,
left behind at the house, and Declan doesn’t know what to do. Should he
let Parker go and turn to Ryan for comfort? Is his relationship with
Ryan only onscreen, or is there something more between the two leading
men? Or is Parker really the star of Declan's heart?
Parker carefully positioned the box in the middle of the bed as if it
were some kind of a precious treasure. Stepping back, tipping his head
sideways, he gazed contemplatively at the box.
He had no clue as
to what had made him think of buying this box of chocolates. At that
moment Parker thought it would be a great idea to send it to Declan.
But now he wasn't so certain anymore.
What would be the meaning of the gift? How would Declan feel, receiving this? What would he think when he had it in his hands?
down on the bed, gaze on the deluxe pack with images of
luscious-looking chocolates on it, Parker was bickering with himself. He
wasn’t the one who should apologize (that was the message behind this
gift, wasn’t it?). Declan was the one who cheated. Thus, he had to make
the first move.
Yet, his heart reminded Parker that he’d turned
away from Declan without giving him a chance to talk. Ryan coming to
Declan’s house that night might not have meant anything. Parker
shouldn’t not have fretted about the zealous way Ryan greeted Declan.
Ryan had always been like that, hadn’t he?
The point wasn't who should ask for an apology. He who humbles himself before others, would emerge a noble man, was that not what the proverb said?
drew out a blank card and a pen he'd bought from the hotel's souvenir
shop. All right, so he would send the chocolates after all. The only
question remaining was what he should write in the card. What did he
actually want to say to Declan?
Would that be ...
I miss you. No. What if Declan never even thought twice about Parker’s leaving and had forgotten that he existed?
How about ...
I trust you.
... Parker just couldn’t write it. There were so many questions he
wanted Declan to answer. It saddened Parker, though, to think that he
couldn’t give his absolute trust to his lover.
still thought he might’ve made a mistake leaving Declan like that. But
-- he wasn’t the one cheating. He could never cheat on his boyfriend. He
loved Declan too much. So ...
I love you. Yes. Parker was
simply expressing his feelings and Declan was under no obligation to
love him back. But would that statement sound like a pathetic plea?
sighed dejectedly. Perhaps he should simply abandon this idea
altogether. If only Declan would call him. Had Declan really thought
things settled between them?
