AFTERSHOCK – Snippet #1

Disclaimer: May be edited or deleted prior to publication.

“I’m about to land, Gia. I’ll be at the hotel within the hour and you’re going to see me.”

My pulse gave a traitorous leap of excitement. My sex drive had been revved since I’d left him the night before. It was all too eager to cross the finish line. “I’m working, Jax. I don’t trust you to be around my work.”

I heard his sharply indrawn breath and knew I’d scored a hit.

“Fine,” he snapped. “I’ll send a car for you. We’ll meet at my hotel.”

“I’ve got stuff to do today. I’ll let you know when I have a moment, and I’ll find a neutral place for us to meet.” A bar, maybe, or even a shopping mall. Someplace where intimacy wouldn’t be a problem. Sadly, I couldn’t trust myself around him now that I knew how he felt about me.

“My hotel, Gia,” he reiterated. “A public place won’t save you. We’re going to fuck, long and hard, wherever we end up. Better we don’t end up in jail and the tabloids while doing it, don’t you think?”

  • Ace

    ha.. feisty both of them. Im having a dilemna here, the more i tried to focus on other readings like this one ,, the more Gideon Cross shadows creeping up at the back of mind.. seriously asking when is Captivated by you .. Im actually starving for Crossfire news and in as much as I tried not to ask Sylvia .. any news??

    • Bobinette

      I agree with you, i would love for Sylvia to set up snapshots for the 4th book

    • Karen Isa Smith

      i agree
      bu these are a nice little gap filler

      do we know when the 4th crossfire is out?

      • Ace

        i’ve been reading a lot of gap reader lol .. and its really bad as I am now reading 2 books in a week to fill the gaps. i sometime find a great read and sometimes “crap” but it will just fill up the gap at the time of reading then hello #Crossfire again . my addiction is worse i think .. or maybe subconsciously i already want a closure and have Gideon and Eva an happily ever after .. so I could have mine . if that makes sense.

  • Myrna LeBon

    This is not fair that we have to wait another 4 months for Aftershock. I thought I was having a bad dream when I couldn’t download it this morning.

You are good, really out of this world!!!!! I am a nervous wreck, waiting for Aftershock!!!!!!! I am so happy that in 2014 we will read more about Eva and Gideon. Thank you very much for bringing such joy into my life.

  • JustAFan

    please put up more snippets! I live these so much 🙂

  • L’re Pillemer

    I just loved, loved, loved afterburn but I wanted more… definitely more pages but I still loved the story between Gia and Jax.
    We as woman should follow in Gia’s and Eva’s footsteps, to not allow any man, even if they are rich and sexy as hell control your life even if you crave that man like your next breath.

  • margie

    afterburn was so short…..will aftershock be longer????

  • Mekel Burrell

    I can’t wait for the rest of the crossfire novels to be released! So for now I think I’m going to read Afterburn and after shocks…
