Cover Reveal : Lime and Tangerine by Kevin Caucher!

This one sounds really cool

Lime and Tangerine Banner


Synopsis


The post-apocalyptic world has changed. Colors have changed.


The skies are now red, and the seas fandango pink.


There are those who’ve acquired skills as “squinters”. By narrowing their eyes, they can see people in different colors—colors by which they can define their mood.


Senlin was born a squinter. A child of the foster system, the lack of love  has left him with casual views on sex.


When Sicong recruits him into SQX, a squinter organization, Senlin wants nothing more than to jump his bones, but Sicong’s detachment makes Senlin believe his feelings aren’t reciprocated.


Senlin and Sicong’s relationship begins to grow as they undertake missions together.


That is, until an enemy of SQX turns his attention upon them.

Excerpt


SIC HELD MY head in his lap. I looked up and saw, against the backdrop of the cardinal red sky, his angular face looking down at me. We were secluded by teal-colored woods around us. It was chaotic, for the forest was on fire, its color black and blue blending with red and teal. Despite the turmoil and the utter pain in my chest, I felt peaceful, as if all sounds had been erased except my shallow breathing.


“Don’t fall asleep, Sen,” he said to me, both commanding and begging. “Don’t.”


I lifted a corner of my mouth. I was too tired to talk.


Amidst all the distractions, I saw Sic squint his right eye. A subtle one; one he probably thought I wouldn’t notice.


I also squinted. Sic turned lime green when I did that, all over. I smiled because it was lime instead of tangerine or blue. I was sure I appeared the same to him.


It was a good day, regardless of the pain in my chest.

Okay actually the picture has diddly to do with today's snippet. It's just one of many dogwood photos I took hiking yesterday and I thought growing up in an urban prison slum, Kaleo missed out on such beauty.

This week's snippet comes from when Aneurin takes Kaleo to the estate (the night after the swimming one from last week). There is a device the Toymakers implanted in their Toys like Kaleo that can be used to remotely arouse the Toys. What neither man knows is Aneurin set the controller in a 'safe place' since he loathes the very idea and Smoke, his lynx size cat-thing has found the remote....



The need to fuck robbed him of all sense and desire flooded him in ever increasing waves, leaving Kaleo panting. Where the hell was Aneurin? Why leave him suffer? Why was he turning the device up more? Writhing on the bed, wanting to fight his training, Kaleo sucked in enough of a breath to gasp, “House, tell Shyroth to come here.”

He didn’t know if the house would page Aneurin or if the scientist would come, Kaleo didn’t want to be seen like this, aroused, ridiculously vulnerable, so he flipped onto his side, dragging the sheet over him.
