Rainbow Snippets–Dangerous Love

This is another snippet from my latest book Dangerous Love, the second book in The Yakuza and the English Teacher series.

The sense of being overwhelmed when you walk into Tokyo Central Station is something I can understand. Coming from a small town, Tokyo is a large place, especially when you consider that its population is greater than that of New Zealand’s. But I didn’t get a true sense of being overwhelmed until we (went with a group from my son’s Japanese class) arrived at Tokyo Central Station, ironically to catch the Shinkansen to Kyoto. The sheer number of people rushing through the place in all directions was amazing and a little scary.


He stepped into the main concourse of Tokyo Station and it overwhelmed him. The station busier than Kyoto. Larger. Stretching out in all directions, with people rushing between the different exits leading to platforms beneath him or out onto the streets. They moved through the station without stopping, flowing like liquid, swirling around obstacles and him. Yet, despite being surrounded by so many people, Jamie felt isolated. Paranoid. He saw danger in every corner of the mall-like station as he strode toward the main entrance and out onto the busy Tokyo street.


Rainbow Snippets is a group for LGBTQ+ authors, readers, and bloggers to gather once a week to share six sentences from a work of fiction–a WIP or a finished work or even a 6-sentence book recommendation (no spoilers please!).

  1. I am a weirdo who finds huge cities SEXY! The thought of getting lost in beautiful exotic Tokyo or Kyoto is exciting and exactly what an erotic rush would be for an asexual person like myself. I’ve never been abroad, so the closest I could get was from San Francisco LOL Beautiful snippet, very alive!
