Six Sunday: What he had become (Nobody's Perfect)

First, any Americans reading this, please take at least a moment this weekend to remember those brave military men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation, and the family members and friends they've left behind. Also hold those who served or are serving close in your hearts because weekends like these bring back the tragic losses their units suffered, and memories of the friends they lost. 
Now, for Six more from my June release Nobody's Perfect, book 4 in the Rescue Me series, featuring my most wounded warrior, Damián Orlando. The Dad he refers to, of course, is Adam Montague, his former master sergeant and the man who has been like a father to Damián since they returned from Iraq.

Sweat rolled between Damián's shoulder blades. He fought to keep his focus on Patti and where the bullwhip would fall on her back and ass, but having Savi across the room distracted him. Damn Dad for ignoring Damian's request and keeping Savi here to witness what he had become.

Focus, man.

Damián stepped out of his stance and reached for a bottle of water. He needed to put Savi out of his mind.

  1. Great scene....can't wait to read more of it, how Damian deals with it and how Savi reacts to seeing him whip someone.

    Btw, have to steal the Military soldier & flag to share on FB :)

  2. His state of mind comes through very clearly. Great six! :)

  3. Powerful six. Shows his inner torment ("witness what he had become").

  4. I loved this 6. Makes me want to read more and pulled me in! Tweeted and FBd this.


  5. You can feel his struggle! Great six!

  6. Nope, not going to happen. Please tell me he's not getting her out of him mind. Fabulous 6!

  7. I have a feeling that isn't going to happen for him!
    Great six :D

  8. mmmmmm, can't wait for the Damian/Savi story!!

  9. This is soooo very intriguing!

  10. Great six, Kally. Damian better keep his mind on his job or he might be in bigger trouble than just with Savi's attention. Looking forward to your release. :)

  11. Oh Kallypso you are such a tease! I CAN'T WAIT TO READ THIS BOOK! I'm wondering now what is going through both Damian and Savi's minds during that scene!

    So looking forward to reading it!

  12. Kal, my heroes are the men and women fighting for this country. For over 3 years every month I sent to 10 different soldiers, care packages. Some e-mailed; I received a challenge coin from another,but my most prized possession is a flag carried during a Marine operation in Afghanistan on 10.25.11. It was in a AV-8B Harrier jet , that flew coverage in support of 1462/3rd BN 7th Marines and 2nd Bn 4th Marines in Sangin and Musa Qalah, Afghanistan. The aircraft call sign:22/HOOT 14 Flown by Cap’t Tyler . Sanders “Chicken” . I have a book of cards and letters from many service branches, but the Marines were my favorite- I always picked 4 out of the 10. It was all done through Any Soldier.Com, for those who want to do something for our troops. There is a lot going on over there that is not being televised, because of our president. Many soldiers are getting killed that we are not aware of- so say a prayer that they all be kept safe. For the Marine language on the flight, ask Adam to explain them.
