Sexy Snippets #3: Be My Alien

I'm taking today's Sexy Snippet from an upcoming release from M.A. Church and myself, Be My Alien, first book in the Moonlit Skies series. It comes out on May 8th from Dreamspinner Press and is available for pre-order here. Don't forget to check out the other authors of Sexy Snippets here.

Taz wasn’t even sure what peppermint was, so stars above, how would he know if he would like that peppermint explosion thingy? And he wasn’t at all certain he wanted something exploding in his mouth. Well, he wouldn’t mind if it was Reed.
Taz twisted the end of his braid, playing with the multicolored strands of hair, his eyes fixed on Reed. “Um, I’ll have what you’re having.”
Reed swallowed the impulse to say he wanted to have Taz… under him and crying out in pleasure. Holy hell, what had gotten into him?

Blurb:  Reed Hatcher’s life is work, work, work. He owns a successful men’s boutique in New York City, but a love life is out of the question—for many reasons. It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and business is brisk. On an unexpected visit to the Empire State Building, a sexy man literally falls into Reed’s lap. His name is Taz and he’s just been dumped by his date. One look and Reed is hooked. He offers to buy Taz some coffee and they leave together.

Reed is attracted to Taz and takes him home to his apartment. But Reed discovers there’s more to Taz than he realized—especially when Taz’s stripes begin to show. And he has a tail? Turns out Taz is not quite like Reed. In fact, he comes from another planet, far far away, and he’s only on Earth for a vacation.
Reed never believed in aliens before, but he’s facing one now, and dear God, what is he going to do? Just when he decides he loves Taz and together they can handle anything, the alien that dumped Taz decides he wants him back and steals him away.

Can Reed live with the memory of what he almost had, and the love he found and lost? How can he ever face the moonlit skies again?
