Rising Storm will be releasing soon so feels like a good time for an excerpt from book 1 in Westin Force, Fierce Impact. mybook.to/WestinForce1
I glared at him, praying he wouldn’t take this away from me. I needed the distraction, to focus on anything but her.
He nodded. “That’s what I figured,” he said almost like he could read my thoughts. “I needed something to focus on too. It helped, sort of. Do you think you can keep your wolf under control? I haven’t spent enough time around you to know how strong he is.”
“I won’t say it’ll be easy, but yeah, I’ve got him under control. I think he’s mourning,” I admitted.
Cole nodded. “That’s good. Well, you know what I mean. Good that he’s not fighting you yet. Tell me the truth, Grant. Will you be a danger to yourself or your team on this mission?”
He was watching me closely and I didn’t falter in the slightest as I shook my head. “No.”
“I’d agree,” he said. “I’m going to recommend that Patrick keep you on this one, but that recommendation will change quickly if you lose it. Understood?”
“Get out of here. They’re waiting for you,” he said sending a text, no doubt to Patrick. “Hey, Grant?”
I turned back to him already halfway to the door.
“I won’t let you down, Cole,” I tried to assure him as much as myself.
He waved that off. “If you need to talk about anything, I’m just a phone call away. Okay? I didn’t have anyone to talk to, but you do. I’m here for you. Those guys out there are too, even though they’re all a bunch of idiots with no idea what you’re facing.”
I snorted. “Yeah, that’s the truth.”
“Baine didn’t mean to cause this,” he added.
“I don’t blame him. I should have talked to her sooner. I should have followed her faster. I blame myself for this.”
“Figured as much,” he said again. “Good luck out there. Don’t do anything stupid.”
