Flash Forward Friday – LOCKED AND LOADED Teaser #2

posted in: Book Excerpts, Various Musings | 0

Woohoo!  We’re a little over two weeks away from release of the final book in the Bullet series.  Most of my beta readers enjoyed the book, and now I am shipping it off to my review team as we speak (more about that at the bottom of this post).  In the words of Jonathan Davis (or maybe it’s an old wrestling throwback), I’ll simply ask this:  Are you ready???

“Why the hell didn’t you say anything?”

Jennifer felt the anger simmering beneath the surface, and she didn’t know how to stop it from bubbling over. All she could do was try to stay calm. “Because I obviously didn’t feel like it.”

Zane still didn’t stand, and she could tell it was because he was waiting for her to open the door. “Why wouldn’t you? She’s adorable. I can’t believe you could keep her a secret.”

Yeah, she’d had a hell of a time keeping her daughter secret—that much was true. But he needed some truth of his own—even if it wasn’t the whole truth. “I didn’t tell you because I didn’t think I could trust you…and I was obviously right.”

He did stand then, but he wasn’t removing his hand from the door. “That’s not fair, Jen.”

“It is fair. And you totally proved it tonight.”

“I want to talk about it, okay?”

“No. You need to leave.”

He moved his face close to the gap so he wasn’t far from her. “If you plan to kick me out of your life for good, what’s thirty more minutes?”

Damn him…he knew how to get to her every time—not just the words but the puppy dog eyes. And that was why Jennifer opened the door.

As promised, a little more about my review team.  I’m slowly building a group of first reviewers, people who are willing to read my books prior to release and then post a review on Amazon (and possibly Goodreads and other sites) shortly after release.

If you’d like to be part of that group, please fill out this Google form at the end and I will be in touch!  One thing I do want to let you know in advance is that I will ask for links to reviews you have already done of my books.  I’m not necessarily looking for good reviews…just reviews in general and how much information you put in them.  I don’t expect book-length reviews, but I appreciate ones that are at least a paragraph or two, letting readers know what you liked and didn’t like about a particular book.  If you haven’t reviewed one or more of my books already, I must apologize in advance, because I will have to thank you for your time but pass you by for now.  Thanks for your interest!  Here’s the sign up: http://goo.gl/forms/E0x1KZDsc6
