Twenty-five-year-old Sgt. Gray Phillips is at a crossroads in his life: stay in the Marine Corps or get out and learn to be a civilian? He’s got forty-five days of leave to make up his mind but the people in his life aren’t making the decision any easier. His dad wants him to get out; his grandfather wants him to stay in. And his growing feelings for Sam Anderson are wreaking havoc with his heart…and his mind. He believes relationships get ruined when a Marine goes on deployment. So now he’s got an even harder decision to make: take a chance on Sam or leave love behind and give his all to the Marines.
Twenty-two year old Samantha Anderson lost her husband to an IED in Afghanistan just two months after their vows. Two years later, Sam is full of regrets—that she didn’t move with her husband to Alaska; that she allowed her friends to drift away; that she hasn’t taken many chances in life. Now, she’s met Gray and taking a risk on this Marine could be her one opportunity to feel alive and in love again. But how can she risk her heart on another military man who could share the same tragic fate as her husband?
THIS WAS ONLY TEMPORARY, I reminded myself, as Samantha so sweetly kissed me back. I’m only here for a short time I reminded myself but as I felt her tongue stroke the side of my tongue, as she nipped her teeth against my lip, I wanted to just drown in the sensation. Her scent filled my head and the air around us shrank until all I knew was her small body sitting so close to mine. I moved my hand from her shoulder to cup her neck and angled her face for deeper penetration. I licked every inch inside of her mouth until the taste of her was all that I knew on my tongue.
And all that time I stared in to her green eyes and not once did she look like she was anywhere but right here with me. I saw my reflection there. Her heartbeat was made wild by my kisses.
And temporary was the farthest thing from my mind.
Jen Frederick Guest Post – Truth or Dare With Gray and Sam from UNRAVELED
In a game of truth or dare, what would be the worst ‘truth’ for Sam to have to answer?
If Will and Gray were standing in front of her, who would she pick? It would be Gray because while Will was the boy she loved, Gray is the man she gave her heart to.
What about Gray?
That he thought about testing Sam’s loyalty because he was afraid of the strength of his feelings.
What would be easy ‘truths’ for these characters to divulge?
Gray would be fine with admitting that he once learned how to knit in order to win Sam back.
Sam would confess, freely, that she had sex in a car with Gray not very far from her parent’s house. And that she’d like to sully her princess bedroom with a hot and dirty time with Gray.
What dare would Sam have fun completing? What about Gray?
Gray would do almost any dare so long as it didn’t involve Sam getting hurt.
Sam would like to go skydiving again but Gray’s adamantly against this.
