Welcome to my Weekend Writing Warriors post!
Hello! Thank you to everyone who stopped by to read my post last weekend! I have another unedited snippet from ALWAYS HER WINGMAN, the first book in the series MARS SQUADRON 17 for you to read.
Set-up: This snippet continues from last weekend’s, where the crew are sitting around discussing their favorite flavors of meal replacement bars. Enter the hero of the story…
“Yeah, except we ate all of those on our way to Mars.” Senior Airman Colin Garish entered the mess hall, taking the seat across from Hannah and beside Zhang.
He glared at Moon. Probably for sitting beside her rather than for eating the last of the good meal bars, because they’d all devoured them together. Hannah had even stashed a few chocolate-flavored bars in her locker to keep from the others. Yet, they hadn’t lasted the first month of their journey.
Garish’s attraction to her was no secret among the squadron, but it wasn’t returned. Sure, he was good-looking. All of her squadron was when they actually took the time to clean themselves. But Hannah had Peter, the teen who’d stolen her heart back on Earth and she’d vowed to remain faithful to while she served her five years with the Space Military Command.A good-looking squadron. #WeWriWa from ALWAYS HER WINGMAN #scifirom #romance #NewAdult Click To Tweet
ALWAYS HER WINGMAN blurb…
Staff Sergeant Hannah Coriveau dedicated the last five years to the Space Military Command. Heading back to Earth, she’s ready to begin civilian life and reunite with her parents and the boyfriend she left behind. The person she’ll miss most is Garish—her wingman, best friend, and the one who made her regret not being single.
Senior Airman Colin Garish wants his squadron leader. Bad. After spending so much time by her side—both in the Martian skies and on the red planet—being her friend isn’t enough. When Hannah learns of her boyfriend’s infidelity, Colin is there to comfort her.
Before Colin has the chance to confess his feelings, Hannah receives worse news from home. Her father is dying. Seeing her devastation, Colin remains the friend she desperately needs. But in her grief, she pushes him away. Will Hannah let him back in her life when they land on Earth? Or will Colin never get the chance to win her heart?
