Sgt. Alex Cruz took the risk of his life when he pursued and established a relationship with Pfc. Cassie Bennett. Their secret was blown wide open by one life-altering event, leaving their futures in jeopardy.
Escaping the shadows of Marine Corps orders should have been a sigh of relief, but quickly turns into their biggest challenge yet. Alex and Cassie must learn to navigate the road blocks thrown their way, while also figuring out how to function as a couple.
They know what they want, but not always how to attain it. Life will test their love and their resolve, proving that their only option is to learn the art of compromising.
“You call it obsession, I call it passion,” he rasped, just close enough to my lips to where I could feel his breath on my face. “I’ve never loved anyone that I love you. You’ve become a part of me. A part that, at times, hurts to love. You drive me fucking crazy—so much so that I can’t be with you but I certainly can’t fucking be without you. So yes, maybe it is obsession, or maybe it’s madness. Whatever the fuck it is, Blondie, it’s us. And after everything that we’ve been through, we need to get back to it, because it’s our lifeline. It’s the blood pumping from my heart to yours. And we both know, bravado, machismo, stubbornness, or whatever fancy fucking words you want to give it, it’s what we need to survive.”
Just a book reading, writing loving, mommy and USMC wife! 🙂
I love to write, even if it isn’t what is conventional and makes everyone feel giddy inside. I usually pull from dreams, or ideas that just thrust themselves into my head. I have what some would describe as a dry sense of humor, and I think its conveyed in my writing. I like to think I am a kick ass chick, but I can also be sensitive. I’m learning to grow thick skin, and in this field, it is definitely needed!
I won’t put anything out that I am not absolutely proud of, but like E.L. James said, “I can’t own people’s reactions to it.” Thanks for reading my work… I do appreciate it!
