Sunday Snippet: All Tied Up

Holy cheez-its! Ohio is back to chilly, where-did-spring-go weather again. We haven't even hit fifty degrees for the day. LOL

But, the brisk temperature makes for great television viewing. This week didn't turn out too badly either.

Gotham's episode moved the story along and I'm excited to see what this week holds.

The Flash had a great showing. I loved all the interactions with the characters. Quite a complicated mix but somehow the relationships all work. Agents of SHIELD ended a character I've grown fond of, but I thoroughly enjoyed the inside movie references and how they tied into the small screen story.

Arrow pulled off a great episode, at least the part I saw. I had an unavoidable meeting on Wednesday and haven't had a moment to really catch up on the beginning yet.

Legends of Tomorrow. Wow. I hope the whole time travel thing lets the sacrificed character return. If not, I'm going to be very disappointed. Truly great stuff, though. And Orphan Black continues to blow my mind each and every week. I LOVE this show.

All caught up on Banshee and Wynonna Earp, with the exception of this week's episodes. That will be rectified later today. Caught the trailer for season three of The Last Ship and I'm now eagerly awaiting June so I can dive back into this one.

And that's it for television this week.

Tonight's post is from All Tied Up, a sexy short that will be a free download in the near future. This one features Max and Maggie from the Top Dog Pilots series.

Here's the mini-blurb:

Maggie Harper has the man she wants and a job she loves. But sometimes she has to pull out all the stops to keep life interesting. And that means Max Cutter better be ready for whatever Maggie comes up with next.

And a sneaky peek…

Max Cutter handed his post-flight checklist to the deck chief. "We all square?" He got the all clear and crossed the hangar, headed to his quarters.
Hopefully Maggie would be there and not in a conference with their CO, Drake Essex, going over the new parameters on the grid mapping. Their schedules were all over the star chart and finding time to be together, much less say hello to each other, proved a challenge.
Coming off a training run with a new pilot, Cutter didn't bother hitting the shower. The rookie did the hard work, flying the intricate route solo while Cutter observed and offered support. The practice trial took about three hours, not bad for a beginner. Cutter could make it through the grid in under two hours, but he'd flown the route more times than anyone, with the exception of Maggie.
A far cry from the hours upon hours of the initial mapping mission. The one where he lost his wingman and Maggie came out as the replacement. Each played a large role in mapping the huge belt of space rock and now they acted as guides for new recruits. And they'd found something of a sweet spot while living and working together.
Not always an easy thing, but Cutter wouldn't complain. Once they got through his turmoil over losing his wingman, Ray, with a little help from Maggie's swift kick to Cutter's ass, each got their head around the idea. Truth told, he and Maggie figured they were headed in that direction anyway, just hadn't made a hard and fast decision to move in together.
Which, in all honesty, pretty much defined their weird brand of normal.
Heading up a deck, Cutter picked up his pace. He couldn’t wait to kick back and relax with Maggie. He undogged the hatch and pushed it open, stepping inside to find Maggie stowing her shower kit in her duty locker.
She turned toward him and a slow smile spread across her face. "Well, hello, hot stuff. I've been expecting you." Her finger crooked, beckoning him to come greet her properly.
She didn't have to ask twice. He crossed the floor in three easy strides and met her mouth in a steamy kiss. Geez, she rocked his world every time their lips touched. His hands cupped her face, the lip-lock sliding into off the charts territory.
Maggie finally eased back, her palms smoothing down the front of his flight suit. "Let's get you out of this, okay?" Her fingers worked the zipper down and spread the material aside.
Cutter started to shrug out of the suit, but caught the flash of Maggie's wicked grin. Shit. He had maybe three seconds to prepare for whatever she had planned.
Or not.

Don't let Cutter fool you. He loves Maggie's inventive mind. J

That's it for this week. Catch everyone on the flipside.
