This series started many years ago in my high school Science Fiction English class. I didn’t expect it to become a series when I decided to expand on what I’d written all those years ago, but in writing the first story, I knew it had to continue the rebels fight against the corporation, and the love story between many of the characters.

I hope you’ll check out THE COMPLETE UNDERGROUND SERIES…

The Complete Underground series by Jessica E. Subject_500x750In the future…

The corporation Planet Core holds all of the power. They place restrictions on the lives of those living within their boundaries, including who they can love. And there is no escape.

Deception runs deep…

The rebel group, calling themselves The Underground, is disputing the corporation’s leadership. With the desire for freedom, they will fight.

And betrayal can come from anyone…

Will the rebels defeat Planet Core, or end up fighting for their lives?

Enjoy an excerpt from the first story in the series, Never Gonna Let You Go

When the glide arrived at her stop, she stepped off with a swell of other riders. She crossed the asphalt road, once used for gas-powered vehicles, and took a deep breath. I’m finally home. Sliding her card to gain access to the secure building, her heart raced in anticipation. She needed to be with Erik, find out the truth, and reunite with the man she loved. However, her apartment door didn’t open.

“Access denied,” the robotic female voice rang out.

What? She tried again with the same result. Sliding the card faster or slower didn’t make a difference. She couldn’t get into her apartment building.

“Please vacate the area. Authorities have been notified.”

Calla’s stomach twisted. Her throat tightened. Was this Malock’s doing?

She pulled out her communicator and contacted the building manager. “Taylor, it’s Calla Jacobs. My card won’t work in the reader. Can you please open the door for me?”

He grimaced at her. “I’m sorry, Jacobs, but I’m under strict orders not to let you into the building. Your apartment has already been assigned to another employee, and your belongings were taken a week ago to Planet Core.” He disconnected, leaving her to stare at a blank screen.

A week ago? Malock had planned her demise before she’d even left for Airondelle? Tears threatened to fall. She wiped them away. With PC cameras all over the city, she imagined he watched her and laughed. She stood tall, not letting him get to her.

Although she had no possessions, no place to live, she could still live a happy life with Erik. But where was he if not at her apartment? After they’d decided to return to being friends, he’d moved to Planet Core claiming she would be too much of a temptation for him if they continued living together.

She dialed his communicator, hoping he’d be nearby. When he failed to answer, not once, but five times within ten minutes, Calla lost hope. Malock had ruined her as he’d threatened. She had nothing left. Her only option was to return home to her parents. A glide could get her there by nightfall.

She squashed that irrational thought. No! She’d rather live in the rumored underground cities than go crawling back to the two people who’d admitted they’d only had her to gain status in the business world. She couldn’t go back there. She’d rather take her chances and return to Planet Core.

Sirens hauled her back from her thoughts. A police hover bike flew past her and ground to a halt. Glancing in her direction, the officer pointed at her.

I haven’t done anything wrong!

When the bike circled toward her, she ran—her first instinct. Malock knew too many people, and he’d reminded his recruits every day when he’d dropped in on their training. She hadn’t realized how those words would affect her until  now.

The siren on the bike screamed behind her. She motioned to cross at the intersection where people and hover vehicles waited for the lights to change. But instead, she spun around the corner, hoping to throw off the officer. She peered over her shoulder to see if the bike followed her, and smacked into what felt like a brick wall. Landing on her ass, she stared up at the mountain of a man before her.

The guard from Planet Core.

She crab-walked backward across the concrete sidewalk. Hopping onto her feet, she fled back onto the main street. She traveled the way she’d come, unsure if anywhere would be safe. No one could escape the cameras.

Hurrying past her building, she spotted the hover bike reflected in its dark glass walls. The siren had been turned off, and the officer was almost on her. She scanned her surroundings for an escape route. Similar glass buildings lined the next few blocks, all owned by Planet Core. She couldn’t get into any of them now, and there was no place she could hide.

Her lungs ached from running. Maybe she should surrender. What then? I’ll be killed.

“Stop!” The officer on the bike rocketed in front of her.

At the same time, something grabbed her arm and yanked her into darkness. A cloth slammed over her mouth, muffling her cry. Shit! Things just went from bad to worse.

ONE SEXY NIGHT

Here’s seven from NEVER GONNA DESERT YOU, an F/F futuristic dystopian romance, which is the second story in my upcoming box set release.

The Complete Underground series by Jessica E. Subject_500x750

Set-up: While Melina has always been attracted to Brook, this is the first time they are together.

Brook’s bottom lip trembled. “You…you don’t want me anymore?”

If only she knew. Melina wrapped her arms around Brook, but kept her hands clutched together. If she drew her fingers across any part of Brook’s body, she’d lose all control. “I want you more than you will ever know. But, as you know, same-sex relationships are banned.”

Brook twisted around in Melina’s arms. “I don’t care any longer. Take me. Show me how you can love me because I’ve been fantasizing about it for weeks.”

The last restraint snapped. She refused to deny what Brook wanted. Scooping her onto her lap, Melina nuzzled into the crook of her neck, taking in the exotic scent of strawberries. If the replicated version smelled as divine, she’d never eat anything else.

She found Brook’s soft lips. With tender sweeps, she invaded her mouth. God, the girl tasted like heaven.

Pulling open the tie of Brook’s robe, she slipped her hand inside the smooth silk. Warm porcelain skin met the tips of her fingers. Soft, like the petals of a rose. Both so rare and wonderful. Her breath quickened. She’d never made love to a woman, yet there was no one she wanted more. Desire flooded out all conscious thought, leaving only hunger to touch and taste. To have.

She laid Brook back on the couch, robe open to expose her beautiful naked body. Palming the ample breasts, she circled her thumbs around Brook’s pert nipples. Utterly divine.

Calla finally learns the truth ~ #MySexySaturday from THE COMPLETE UNDERGROUND SERIES #boxset #99cents

My Sexy Saturday

Hi peeps! It’s the 79th week of My Sexy Saturday. Here are the details: every Saturday, published and unpublished authors will be sharing 7 words, sentences, or paragraphs from a work-in-progress or an already published story.

Today’s theme is…

My Sexy Valentine

Here’s seven from NEVER GONNA LET YOU GO, an F/F and M/F futuristic dystopian romance, which is the first story in my upcoming box set release.

The Complete Underground series by Jessica E. Subject_500x750

Set-up: While no one really celebrates Valentine’s Day in the dystopian world in The Underground series, Erik finally gives Calla what she’s always wanted… The Truth.

“The day I left her, I woke up, not knowing where I was or why I had a wedding ring on my finger. I panicked.” He laid his hand on hers, giving it a squeeze. “I knew if I’d married you, I would’ve remembered.”

Still unable to look at him, she stared across the surface of the water. Who is telling the truth? Erik had never lied to her, never kept anything from her, before Melina.

“Holloway came into the room, and I freaked. She’d been after me for a while, and every time I’d told her no. Every time. I was waiting for the day you and I would be together again. She was at the bar that night…. I don’t know how she did it.”

He released her hand, and they sat in silence for a few moments. She didn’t know who to believe. She just wanted to wake up and find it all to have been a nightmare. The heartache proved the situation to be real, though.

“I’m sorry for treating you the way I did.” He grasped her hand again, and she focused on him, seeing tears in the corners of his eyes. “I was so ashamed of what happened. I know I wasn’t responsible, but I felt like I’d still broken our promise. Every time I saw you, I was riddled with guilt.” He wiped his eyes. “That’s why I pushed you away. It was easier for me when you weren’t around.”

Why couldn’t he see what his actions had done to her? His tears wouldn’t make her forget.

“I would have forgiven you, even if you hadn’t been drugged. We still could’ve been friends.” She stood up, shaking her hand free of him. “The way you’ve been treating me is worse than breaking any promise. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to get over it.” She turned to walk away but a sharp pain had her clutching at her side. She doubled over. It hurt so much. She couldn’t breathe.
