Wild Pitch by Rebecca Shea

“We needed to grow up. We needed to live our dreams without sacrificing them for one another.”

Wild Pitch is a fun little short story from author Rebecca Shea. I loved getting to know Mateo and Mia. They were friends who were destined to become more, but life had other plans for them. It would be four years before these two would be reunited again. There is some hurt that needs to be dealt with, but the sparks between these two still burn hotter than ever….So while Mateo and Mia’s story might be super short, it still gives you the sweet and sexy you know and love from this author. I for one would love to see more of these two in the future.

Your Everything by K.L. Kreig

“My small fry is here. It’s dangerous, this feeling rippling through me. It’s a catastrophe, sure as a category five hurricane gathering force in the Atlantic, about to make landfall. Maverick. My Achilles heel.”

“I want to capture this. I want to freeze time. I want to hold her and never let go. I want it all in this moment and I want nothing, save her.”

Your everything is a super quick and fun little tease. If you’re unfamiliar with the Black Swan Affair from author K.L. Kreig, then you are in for quite a treat. Your Everything might be a short story, but I promise it packs a punch. We get to meet Maverick, Killian and Kael. We get to learn their history and are given a small taste of what’s yet to come. This story is sexy and the intrigue will have you begging for more.

*I was provided an ARC copy of these two short stories in exchange for an honest review*
