Look back at 2016
** this post is an extended version of my post at Sweet and Sexy Divas **
When I logged into Facebook this morning one of my friends posted. ERMAGHAD ITS DECEMBER and I thought, yeah, I’m in shock too. What the heck happened to 2016? It flew by and we’re about to embark on another new year.
First things first, I will say I went into 2016 with little to no expectations. When looking back at this year end post for 2015, I talked about honing my skills in writing.
You always do that, especially when you do research and read other authors works to keep up with the market, but other than that, I didn’t quite do what I’d set out to do. Really, when I said honing skills I meant, reading more how to books, taking classes, etc. I did read a couple of…

And now a sip from Rhett!
Blurb: Rhett had a huge crush on Darren McKissick back in elementary school and on Valentine’s Day, he gave him a special valentine. Despite their obvious attraction, Darren rejected it, making everyone in the class laugh at Rhett and cause a rift between the two friends.
Now as adults the two of them have found one another again through an internet dating site. Rhett only wants a one-nighter but Darren is looking for something long lasting.
Will this new meeting mean love for two men who haven’t seen one another in over a decade?
“Seriously?” Rhett browsed the responses to his online ad about a one-nighter for Valentine’s Day and saw nothing that remotely interested him. “Geez, perhaps I should just−”
“Give it up, Rhett!” Matt yelled from across the room and threw a piece of paper at him. “I don’t know why you continuously look through those online personals. You won’t find love that way.”
Rhett turned up his lips in disgust and groaned inwardly. He loved his best friend and roomie like a brother but hated he was such a know-it-all. “And how do you know? Just because you went the traditional route and met Mr. Wonderful at the gym, doesn’t mean anything. Besides, I’m not looking for the perfect lover, just the perfect lay,” he laughed. “A date and a good sex partner for Valentine’s Day.”
“I get it, and I still don’t understand why you waste your time doing it online. You might as well advertise it on the street corner wearing nothing but an overcoat. When a good looking man walks by, flash ‘em and show off your best assets.”
“Shaddup,” Rhett tossed a pencil at him. “The internet is helpful when finding just about everything else. Why not this? I mean…” he propped his feet on top of the desk and leaned back in his chair. “Why shouldn’t I give it a shot? I’ve met nice guys online before−”
“And you’re still single.” Matt retorted, turning to face him from his Lazy Boy recliner.
“Because I want to be,” Rhett added with a smile. “I don’t want anyone at work to know until I’m ready to settle down. For now, I’m happy with the random hookups. It’s easier to keep it hidden that way, since I work at the firm.”
“Yeah, yeah, like they care about your orientation. I told you, I don’t know what you’re so worried about. You’re the IT guy, not the head of anything. You can get away with being gay. No one asks you anything other than how to fix their computer and get rid of viruses.”
“But what if the conversation turns into, who’s the person you’re seeing? Then I’m forced to answer questions. At least now I only say, ‘no one special’, which leaves it totally open. It means I’m available.”
“And they assume you’re straight, which you’re not.”
“That’s okay too, because I never get into specifics with them. If I start acting all giddy and stuff, they’ll suspect something. I can’t have that, Matt. I just want a temporary date for the night, someone I can bring home, eat breakfast with, and kick out in the morning.”
“Makes for a lonely night, Rhett. Very lonely. Valentine’s Day should be for lovers, or at least people who are seeking that. You can do the hook ups any time of the month.”
“Yeah, but−well, heck, I need something to do that night, okay? You’ll be out with your man, and I’ll be stuck here alone. I just want company, that’s all.”
“I get it,” Matt sighed and shook his head as if he pitied Rhett’s situation. He got up and clicked his teeth, while he grabbed his empty glass. “If you ask me, I think you need a full-time lover in your life. Deep down you want that relationship and perhaps you’re too scared, or too lazy, to look. Wanting a one-nighter is a cop out.”
“No it’s not. Like I said, I’m just not ready for the emotional hang-ups that come with a relationship. Putting my heart out there to get stepped on isn’t something I want to experience.”
Matt stopped a moment before walking out the room. “Have you ever been in love? I mean, we’ve only known one another since high school. Then, you were such a nerd and cared little to nothing about boys or girls. You only wanted to sit at home, play video games, or work on your computer.”
Rhett sat up straight and looked away a moment while drawing up his lips. He bit the bottom one until it hurt.
Rhett wanted to answer Matt’s question, but he knew it would sound really stupid. The first boy I ever saw, I fell in love with. Darren was his first name. The young boy’s last name escaped him, but he recalled that taut body that looked good even in seventh grade. The boy was an athlete with exceptional skills in almost every sport; he was smart and fine. Caramel colored skin just like his favorite candy bar, Twix, light brown eyes, bushy black eyebrows, and a perfectly chiseled face that resembled a movie star. Mmph. Was it wrong to get horny just thinking about a preteen boy he knew almost eleven years ago?
“I’m waiting, Rhett!” Matt stood there, arms crossed and tapping his feet, patiently awaiting Rhett’s response.
Rhett hesitated. “No.” He just couldn’t endure the ridicule from his best friend. He could hear it now. You fell in love with a boy in elementary school? Rhett knew it sounded silly too, but his heart was crushed that day at the Valentine’s Day party. Boldly, Rhett gave Darren a Valentine’s Day card and when Darren saw it, he chuckled and made fun of it. Rhett would never forget the look on his face and the way the other kids laughed, teasing him about asking Darren on a date. Just one of the reasons he didn’t want to come out of the closet. Since then, he’d never taken teasing very well. “I haven’t. Like I said, I’m afraid of getting hurt.”

And now an excerpt!
Unlike the popular bank, Chase Whittaker has no money. However, living on the northwest side of Chicago in a rundown building with no car, and no savings hasn’t made him totally undesirable. His good looks and charm make up for everything he seems to lack. Still, it’s not enough to stop his landlord from threatening to sell the building where he owns the store his grandfather opened.
Micah Strickland is the child of famous football player Thomas Strickland and a ghostwriter. Though he’s never hurting for money, He can’t seem to find a man who wants the same things he does. Insecurities about being accepted as a gay and black man also prohibit him from being happy. He does everything to prove he fits in and even after all that, Micah hasn’t found anyone who’s interested in a committed relationship.
When Micah visits Chase’s…
