Get Hooked: Reel in a Great Book—Surviving the Trap #MFRWHook

MFRW Authors Blog

Welcome to Book Hooks, the weekly smorgasbord sampler hosted by the MFRW Authors Blog.

Readers: get hooked and reel in some great books. Authors are sharing short excerpts from their work. Please enjoy and consider picking up the full book by clicking on the buy link.

To celebrate my most recent release, Surviving the Trap, book one of the Top Dog Pilots series, I'll be posting a series of pivotal scenes over the next couple of weeks. Please enjoy!

Today's post features the introduction of my hero, Max Cutter.

Book Tagline: A week of hell pushes Maggie into risking her friendship with Max by sleeping with him.

Series Tagline: Two top pilots, Max Cutter and Maggie Harper, like to mix a little personal with their professional life.


He'd always wanted to fly.
But this?
Hitting trap after trap, over and over? Sure as hell didn't qualify as flying.
More like a teeth-jarring, brain-scrambling, headache-inducing nightmare. The planes weren't designed for it. Hell, the pilots even less so. He'd never heard nor read about anything like this in the scores of military history books he devoured. What the brass hoped to prove by tying flight quals to this display of madness had to be beyond Max.
Unless they were attempting to discover which gave out first—the pilot or the plane?
His opinion? It would be a dead heat.
Planes were like women. The more respect someone showed them, the more someone dug down deep to understand how they worked and what they needed, the more that person could make them hum with satisfaction. Flying was almost as good as sex. Almost. When Max flew, an indefinable something thrummed in his blood. The precision, the instinct, the ebb and flow, the give and take of response—all of it heightened the experience.  Exerting just enough control to bend the plane to his will while at the same time giving himself over. To become one with the machine.
