I like the undershirt on this cover, I won't lie.  
Oh hey, it's the last book in the trilogy!


Bang300

Great Barrington beat cops Jackson Ford and Marisol de la Espada enjoyed a seamless partnership for a decade, guarding each other’s backs, predicting each other’s moves. Until they sent it all to hell with a gesture of comfort that turned romantic. Not only was the sex awkward—terrible, even—it messed with their focus. And Jack was shot.

Four months later, Jack has been cleared for active duty, but beneath his barely mended body, he’s barely holding it together. Because once the paramedics tore his blood-soaked body out from under Marisol’s hands, she practically disappeared.

Since that day, Marisol has done nothing but replay every mistake she made over and over in her mind. As she and Jack grope through the pain, the guilt, and the fog of PTSD for the key to healing their partnership, they begin to wonder if love is enough to heal the trauma, or if they’re destined to blow their partnership—and any chance at love—all to pieces.

Bang isn't out until 3/3, but you can preorder here-- and in the meantime, hit me with a fandom/pairing + a prompt (I'm watching all kinds of random business these days, so don't hold back), and I'll hit you with some fic!

Hi, fandom. It has been too long.

Well HELLO, I just put the BANG debut date in my calendar with stars and sirens because I couldn't find an emoji for handcuffs. PROMPT-WISE, howabout Sarah Koenig, signs of life, orrrrr some sort of weird strange encounter for the 100, pairing of your choice.

AM I ABOUT TO WRITE THE FIRST SARAH KOENIG RPF ON THE INTERNET, PETRAGEM?
She's got nothing, for the next season.

Oh, she's got plenty. Everybody's got an idea for her, Ira, Julie, the sandwich guy on campus: how about Obama's birth certificate? he asked her yesterday, handing over her veggie wrap with a knowing nod of his head. There's a real mystery for you.

Sarah nodded politely. Added a bag of chips.

She doesn't want another mystery, though people generally refuse to believe her when she tells them that (and yes, Sarah gets the irony there). She thinks about Adnan, still sitting in jail waiting, Adnan who doesn't call anymore, and why would he? She misses him, although she knows that's weird and so she doesn't say it. But she wonders if he misses her too.

Private school, she writes in pencil at the bottom of her list, grasping and knowing it. Afghanistan?

Second acts.


Sarah sighs, shoves the pencil into her topknot. Gets back to work.

SARAH KOENIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG.
OBAMA'S BIRTH CERTIFICATE. Dear GOD, I missed your fic.

Do we think she has feelings for Adnan? Discuss. (Spoiler: I think she has weird, sort-of-gross, vaguely white-guilt-like feelings for Adnan, of which she is 100% self-aware. She thinks about those girls who write love letters to serial killers a LOT. She wants him to be innocent.)

THAT SUMMARY WAS A+. DATE NOTED AND REMEMBERED

I don't really know what you're into, so. Options.

Agent Carter | Peggy, anyone, everyone | do as Peggy says
Agent Carter RPF | Hayley Atwell | relax, you'll sprain something
The Newsroom | Sloan/Don | don't believe me, just watch
The Cutting Edge | Doug/Kate | in a restless world like this is

OKAY, I'M GOING TO DO THE CUTTING EDGE ONE, BUT: should I be watching Agent Carter? Even if I'm not a superhero kind of girl?

OH, YES. It's so so great and, while there is some mention of superhero shenanigans, it's more about a kickass lady combating stupid idiot men who don't take her seriously and doing fabulous things in spite of them.

ALSO. I just started Parenthood. If you feel like writing Braverman hijinks instead of 90s ice skating greatness, I wouldn't be opposed.

Sarah's the one who gets Crosby high the first time, out in the garage one Tuesday night in the summer of 1993 while their parents eat shrimp cocktail at the Gelners' down the block. Julia's the one who sniffs them out. "Adam!" she hollers, the screen door clattering shut behind her as she stomps across the yard, blonde hair swinging, the other two laughing too hard to call her back.

Re: welcome baaack!
"I would have been very cool about it," Andy tells him later at the Penny, her third Jack and ginger sweating in her hand. "Like. Extremely cool."

Sam nods seriously. "I...do not doubt that."

"I'm just saying," she says. "I'd be an awesome stepmom. I would want to have me as a stepmom. I mean, not that I would have been its--that you and I are--" She flaps her hand back and forth between them. "You know what I mean."

Sam does. "McNally," he says, taking her drink and setting it on the bartop. "I only ever want 'em with you."

As I posted on TG's lj, I loved the first 2 books in your series and pre-ordered the 3rd one. yay for first-responders and their romantic lives and your style of telling it!

How about some Rookie Blue and our sexy dark-haired cops: Sam/Andy + wedding announcement
lowriseflare: sam andy bedheadlowriseflare on February 10th, 2015 07:58 pm (UTC)
The smart thing is to be low-key about it, definitely.

She's been engaged once already, Andy tells herself; there's still Nick to think about. They've only been back together for less than a year.

Yeah, Andy thinks, twisting the ring around her finger. She's definitely going to play it cool.

"Is there any coffee?" Chris asks, wandering into the kitchen.

"We're totally getting married," Andy blurts.
shnallyloushnallylou on February 10th, 2015 11:42 pm (UTC)
Andy blurting things out is my fav. <3 this!

I started reading Singe and got totally hooked (I love your style!!!) and do you watch Chicago Fire and/or Chicago PD? If yes, how about this for Kelly Severide/Erin Lindsay: No wedding day smiles no walk down the aisle/No flowers no wedding dress?
