MY SEXY CELEBRATION
For today’s post, I’m sharing an excerpt from NEVER GONNA SAY GOODBYE, a sensual sci-fi romance.
Setup: At the end of the Underground series, Planet Core has fallen, and the metropolis once controlled by the corporation is now called Newry. While there have been many changes to the land, there are also changes happening to individual people and couples…
Will heard the joy in their voices before they burst out of the doctor’s office.
Warmth temporarily filled his soul. “I’m guessing you have good news?”
Brook nodded, her eyes glassy. “I’m pregnant.”
Wrapping her and Melina in a big hug, he squeezed them tight. “I’m so happy for you both, so glad the insemination took.”
Many other young couples around the city had children on the way, pregnancy no longer restricted by the government. But, up until two months ago, Brook believed giving birth to a child would never happen for her. She didn’t think she could have both the love of her life and a baby. Since pregnancy had been restricted for so long, adoption wasn’t even an option.
After he’d learned of her desire, he searched for a donor, a man consenting to help them have a child, but willing to give up all rights. He hadn’t told her who, only about the possibility of AI. Once she and Melina agreed to the process, he arranged the details.
“Now, you must celebrate.” He smiled, confidant of what he had to do next. They were happy, and it was finally time for him to be as well.Time to celebrate. #Excerpt from NEVER GONNA SAY GOODBYE by Jessica E. Subject Click To Tweet
NEVER GONNA SAY GOODBYE
Rebels, former Planet Core employees, have banded together in The Underground. They fight against the policies of the corporation that owns the lease on their lives. They will have their freedom or they will die trying.
The rebellion is stirring…
Will Garrison leads the fight against the control of the corporation—he wants his people to have their rights to live and love back. Reunited with his lover, former Planet Core medic Tim Harris, the men disagree on how to take down the corporation.
And the desire for freedom…
Tim’s plan requires that he provide a distraction while Will leads The Underground’s forces in a lightning raid, but who can Will trust when he’s already been betrayed once?
May cost these men everything…
Timing is everything, because if either fails The Underground may be crushed under the weight of Planet Core once and for all.
