Practice is over. Time to land the jet. Read an excerpt from GENJ #KaddimBrothers #Romance #SciFiRomance #MMRomance #8Sunday


Hello and welcome to another Weekend Writing Warriors post!

Hello everyone! Thank you to all those who came to visit me last weekend! This weekend, I'm sharing my first snippet from GENJ, the second book in my Sci-Fi MPreg MM Romance series, KADDIM BROTHERS. This story is in revisions, so any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Set-up: This is the opening scene in Genj's point of view. Enjoy!


Deploying flaps and slats, I began to slow my jet as I approached the runway. All indicators showed I was in the correct position, so I closed the throttles and started to flare. My main landing gear touched down, followed by the nose gear. Using my reverse thrust to slow down even faster, I then applied the brakes for a perfect landing. Today’s practice was complete.

Once I taxied around to my designated spot on the tarmac, I glanced around to make sure the rest of my team was in place before opening the canopy. It was a successful training day, and Ilam, our newest teammate, proved once again that he could do anything. The kid had absolutely no fear when it came to attempting new maneuvers.

I unbuckled my harness, took my helmet off, then made my way down the steps that one of our team’s mechanics had positioned beside my jet.

“Nice flying today,” Hanziel, the head mechanic, said as I stepped onto the tarmac. 


This is my mood board for Genj


GENJ
Kaddim Brothers book two

Genj is a cinnamon roll alpha. Even as one of the circuit’s best space racers, he’s shy and rather clumsy. Not qualities anyone wants in a mate, especially the omega he’s crushed on for years. But when Genj invites Utahn on a whim to visit him for a weekend, he’s surprised the omega agrees.

Utahn never expected his best friend’s older brother to reciprocate his feelings. Genj is a space racer, and everyone in the universe knows they rarely commit. When the two get together, sparks fly. And what once seemed impossible becomes a dream come true.

But situations change. And past relationships have a way of interfering with new ones. Can Genj and Utahn work through past traumas, or were they never meant to be more than a childhood crush?

  1. Great tease, Jessica. Cinnamon roll alpha - LOL! And I LOVE your mood board. Where did you get that idea (becuz I want to 'borrow' it if it's okay with you!)?

    1. Thank you, Nancy! I've seen many authors use mood boards, especially in fan fiction. I've used them before, and they definitely help with writing and revisions. I would love to see yours!

    1. Thank you, Jenna! A cinnamon roll alpha is an alpha who is super sweet, and forgets he's an alpha, except when it comes to his mate.
