MySexySaturday - THE RIVALS

April 11, 2015:


I don’t have a character who is especially conscious of and comfortable with his sexiness, but I do have one who appears to be completely unaware of it. So, for this week’s edition of MySexySaturday I have seven paragraphs from THE RIVALS.

By Christiane France


Rod Levins’ future as a newly qualified lawyer is anything but certain. After graduating with an above ninety-five-percent average, he’s in line for a job with the town’s number one law firm. So are three others, including the man Rod’s fantasized about for many months.

Jinks Jessop gives the impression he’s interested in Rod also, but each time Rod makes a move, Jinks backs off. Is Jinks gay, straight, or simply a rival amusing himself at Rod’s expense?

Rod knows that “wanting” and “getting” are rarely synonymous. But he can hope...


 “Oh, well, in that case…” He (Jinks) stood as if to leave, but then he hesitated, frowning. “Why on earth would you think I’d be jealous over you having lunch with Chetley?”

“A couple of reasons, I guess.” I gave an offhand shrug, aware I needed to choose my words very carefully. “He’s your dad’s client, you’re neighbors, and you move in the same social circles. I don’t know. I thought there was a chance he might be…how do I put it? Your special friend, perhaps?”

“My what?”

From the look on his face, I wasn’t sure if Jinks was about to pass out or explode. Then he grabbed my shoulders and pulled me close until our bodies were touching. His eyes were half-closed and dark as night. I could hear him breathing. I could feel his heart pounding in his chest. My heart was pounding, too, so hard I didn’t dare move.

He angled his head, and I knew he was about to kiss me, then he said, “You’re damn right I was jealous—jealous because of you, not him. And the thought of him putting his slimy hands on you made me… Oh, God!”

“Made you what?”

“Want to kill the sonofabitch, that’s what. So there, now you know.”
