Rainbow Snippet–Editing Mode

For the next few weeks I’ll be busy editing the fourth book in The Yakuza and the English Teacher series – Crossing the Line. It follows the romance between two of the secondary characters, who first meet in book 2 Dangerous Love and will include corrupt cops and a sweet but deadly Yakuza. The poor book and its characters must have felt abandoned with the number of times I kept shoving it aside to write another story, but after putting the draft up on Wattpad to keep myself motivated, editing has begun. So far, it has been a lot of face-palming as I stumble across every Brain that should’ve been written Brian.

This weeks Rainbow Snippet comes from it.

It didn’t surprise Kennosuke that Jamie hadn’t told his friend how deep into Araki-gumi business he’d sunk, and it was amusing to watch Brian’s reactions. A flustered Brian proved to be just as arousing as an angry, dangerous one.

“Come on? We’ve gone hunting together, you know I’m more than capable of using one of these-” Jamie shifted his jacket to show Brian the gun he kept on his person and Kennosuke thought Brian’s head might explode. “-hell, I’ve even shot a man. Dead.”

“Un-fucking-believable. Marry a Yakuza… share fucking sake with him… It doesn’t mean you need to act like one,” Brian ranted and while Kennosuke could listen to his angry gravelly voice all day, he instead cleared his throat and brought the focus back to him.

“And you’re so squeaky clean?” he scoffed. “You’re not the ‘good-little-cop’ you pretend to be, right Brian?”
