In celebration of Bisexual Visibility Week, here’s a snippet from Lovers Leap where, for a change, the bi guy really is confused. Only not about his sexuality. It’s about everyone else’s. 😉
In this snippet, Liz is explaining to Michael that her romance with a trans woman doesn’t mean she’s attracted to guys:
Liz got right up in Michael’s face, her eyes narrowed to little slits like a snake’s. “I’ve got no problem with dicks. Well, not actual dicks, anyway. It’s the man on the other end I’ve got a problem with.”
“Jesus, do I have to spell it out? Lesbian.”
“Yeah, but . . . Girls are great, yeah, don’t get me wrong. But blokes are too. And if it’s not the actual tackle you’re objecting to, what is it?” He whirled to face Rufus. “Come to that, what you got against tits?”
Rufus hesitated, put on the spot. “Um, they wobble?”

If they looked, would they ever leap?
Good-looking, confident, and doted on by his widowed mum, Michael is used to thinking only of himself. Getting shoved off an Isle of Wight pier by an exasperated ex ought to come as a wake-up call—but then he meets Rufus and he’s right back to letting the little head take charge. Rufus is cute, keen, and gets under Michael’s skin in a disturbing way.
Would-be chef Rufus can’t believe his luck when a dripping wet dream of a man walks out of the sea on his birthday, especially when Michael ends up staying at the family B&B. Life is perfect—at least until Michael has to go home to the mainland.
Rufus can’t leave the island for reasons he’s entirely neglected to mention. And though Michael identifies as bi, breaking his mum’s heart by coming out and having an actual relationship with a guy has never been his plan. With both men determined to keep their secrets, a leap of faith could land them in deep water.
LOL! Love the tongue and cheeks dialogue tackling an often all too painful and serious issue, which drives people crazy trying to explain, and found the humor in it! 🙂 I especially adored the last line! 🙂
Ahem, ignore my scrambled grammar. (abashed look) I meant to say, “which found the humor in it”. (goes to stand in the corner with all the typos) 🙂
Heh, thank you! 🙂
There’s a lot of mutual incomprehension out there between straight, gay and bi. And don’t get me started on gender issues… I like to poke fun, but I think some people need the point making that to some bisexuals, it’s people on the far ends of the Kinsey scale who are confusing. 🙂
That last line made me choke on my apple caramel crumb cake!
Heh, sorry about that! 😉
I liked this approach to a tough subject.
That last line made me laugh!
Glad you enjoyed! 🙂
