As usual, the weather in Ohio is all over the map. A balmy fifty degrees one day and single digits the next. It's crazy.
I'm working my way through my binge watch of Hawaii Five-0. I'm currently in season 4 at the halfway mark. I'm rather happy with the continuity to this point. When shows play with their history and / or rewrite it, I get a little cranky. (I'm looking at you NCIS: LA)
Need to catch up on The Librarians and Teen Wolf. Definitely looking forward to the return of my regular shows later this month.
Tonight's post is from Everyone Has a Skill, a bonus free read featuring Lita and Ollie from All Jacked Up.
Here's the mini-blurb:
A bonus scene where our heroes are trapped behind enemy lines and only one paid good attention during survival training. The other had more fun memorizing the armory's weapon selection.
And a sneaky peek…
Ollie stirred the contents of the pan over the fire. The stew would be bland, but at least filling. The ginsa root's pungent flavor when raw turned into a much milder taste when cooked.
Lita burst into the clearing, carrying a handful of something with her. "Hey, look what I found." She waved the green plants back and forth then brought them closer.
He grinned. "Wild leeks?" Taking them, he rinsed the tender greens with some water and started slicing them into the pot.
She quirked a brow. "Don't sound so surprised. I'm not a total moron." Dropping down to her haunches, she sniffed the bubbling soup.
Ollie snorted. "Never said you were. I asked if you slept through survival training." He finished cutting the leeks and wiped his knife off. "That'll liven up the stew."
Lita nodded. "Actually smells good." Her tongue darted out, swiping over her lower lip. "Here's hoping it tastes halfway decent." Laughter sparked in her gaze.
Ollie put his hand over his chest. "Ouch." He stirred the stew one more time then dished it into two cups. "Let's find out, yeah?" Handing her one, he settled down beside her.
Lita took a tentative bite and lifted a shoulder. "It's not five-star dining, but, hey, it's better than anything I'd ever cook." She tapped her cup against his.
Ollie accepted the praise. "At least we won't starve before we can make it to the extraction point." He dug into the meal.
Lita gave him a long, considering look. "Looks like I'm going to have to find a way to repay you." A sexy smirk curved her lips and she waggled her eyebrows.
Ollie chuckled. "Given your imagination, that should prove interesting."
Lita set her dish aside and crawled around to straddle his lap. "You'd better believe it."
Lita and Ollie are very fun and having them rely on each other sparks their attraction, then draws them into a deeper relationship.
That's it for this week. Catch everyone on the flipside.
