Craig and Mike

My snippet this week is from Talk Of The Town, describing just a little of the hell that Craig goes through with his “partner” Mike–



     Christ, he must have had a lot in that carryon bag.   Thank God Mike hadn’t punched him in the face again, because he wouldn’t have had the slightest idea how to explain it at work this time.  At least the makeup girl had hidden that one nicely, but his tetherball excuse wouldn’t have worked twice.  Usually, a few ice compresses got rid of the swelling.  And the questioning looks.

He put his palm on the flat of his stomach, rubbing it gently to soothe the sudden cramping.

Come check out more Rainbow Snippets–something for every taste 🙂

  1. It is disturbing, but i can’t help being intrigued by the tetherball reference. Hopefully Craig will get his HEA and be rid of that bastard.


  2. I grabbed that tetherball reference from my own past; it really really hurts when you get smacked in the face with a tetherball, and Craig has to keep up appearances since he’s a talk show hose. As for the happy ending, well–let’s just say Mike learns the error of his ways.


  3. Domestic violence is never an easy topic. I just hope Craig gets away from him — that’s an HEA in and of itself.


    1. Oh, he gets away from Mike with Carl’s help–but I’m not saying how Mike gets his instant karma 🙂


  4. I can’t believe I still haven’t read that book as I have it on my Kindle for few months already. Probably has to do exactly with the domestic violence part that enrages me quite a lot.


    1. You’ll feel better about it when you get to the part where Craig and Carl give Mike his comeuppance 🙂


  5. Craig has serious issues with self-worth; his public persona is at odds with his private one, and he tries and fails to realize that he’s worthy enough for someone to love him back. Don’t worry, Mike gets his in the book 🙂


  6. Geez, Mike is awful. Reading the other comments, I’m glad to hear Mike gets his due.


  7. Yes, he certainly is awful, but honestly, I had a great time crafting him 🙂 and he does indeed get his dose of instant karma–just how, I won’t say 🙂


  8. Ouch! The description squeezes out every drop of pain so acutely….this was heartbreakingly well done.
