Flash Fiction #52 – and the Christmas Blog Hop

Thanks for stopping. Another picture…another 100 words.

Plus, we’re not just flashing today. A bunch of us are celebrating the season with a Christmas Blog Hop starting today through December 16th.

December 8, 2013

“Is there anyone in here? Call out.”

She’d yet to gather all her memories and she’d be damned if she’d call out before she was ready.

The door behind her cracked and split in two. She turned to her bag and shoved in the picture of her parents.

“The fire’s coming. Let’s go.”

“Not yet.” This fucking world had taken enough from her. “Just one more picture, please.”

He hauled her over his shoulder and tipped her world over. “It’s not worth losing you.”

She wiggled and swung her bag at him.

He slapped her ass. “Enough, I’ve got you.”


Hope you enjoyed my flash today!!

For my Christmas Blog Hop giveaway, I’ll be giving away one ecopy of my debut, TAKING CHANCES. Find the rafflecopter below.


5 Star Review: “Taking Chances, is a must read for anyone who wants a great story, well written, smoking hot smexy scenes and an oh so hot hero.”

5 Star Review: “Taking Chances is SJ Maylee’s debut novel and she does an excellent job of creating interesting characters searching for connection while providing enough kink and spice to heat things up.”

5 Star Review: “it’s well written, there’s no slw moments and it’s packed full of hot sexual tension”


Lydia’s father walked away from her when she was eight. She’s struggled to not let him affect her, but fears she wasn’t loveable enough to make him stay. Jake wants to love one woman, but after scaring the last woman he met outside of the club, he doubts he deserves the right. She protects her heart by sticking with her fantasies and he lives by a set of rules that excludes women who choose a vanilla lifestyle.

The two will be kept in a conference room working together until their special project is complete. If Lydia and Jake hold tight to their bland lives, they’ll always yearn for love that is out of reach. Together they find common ground, passion, and a reason to take chances. Once they discover the grand possibilities of the love they desire, they find themselves in the very place they tried never to be again, facing unguaranteed loved.

  1. I loved what you did with this one, SJ. I really felt her desperation and not giving into destiny one more time. I see her furious antics to safe her past, no matter what and then his value of rescuing her over her tokens. You built allot of different emotions on multiple levels into this one matter-of-fact teaser. Loved it, really loved it:) xo

  2. Both she and the fireman were strong characters the reader can relate to. I understand her not wanting to leave behind the valuable remembrances. But he’s right. Her life is the most important. But how will she survive with him?
