CRASH AND BURN                                    ANNE MARSH

Crash and Burn by Anne MarshThe marines of Crash, Fire and Rescue wait at the end of the flight lines, racing to the rescue when a military jet crashes. They’re first on the scene. First to put out the flames. And first to fight to pull an injured pilot from the burning wreckage. Dane Roberts loves his job - but he never expected his latest rescue to be a blast from his own past.
Military pilot Laura Jo Dawson hasn't stopped running since high school and her one night with the sexy quarterback. He wanted to hang on; she needed to go. She lives for the adrenaline rush of flying, of pushing herself harder, higher, faster. When her experimental jet crashes and Dane carries her to safety, however, suddenly running looks less exciting. And spending time in the arms of her sexy rescuer looks better and better...


    Dane Roberts and his crew receive a rescue call from the airport.  Pilot in trouble.  They move into action, he and his men had spent countless hours training for moments just like this.  Crash, Fire, and Rescue, was proud of what they did and good at it.

     This night they prayed for the best but expected the worst, that’s how they stayed prepared and trained.  This night felt different for Dane, little did he know it would be.  The bird that crashed and in which the ace pilot they were told was a hot shot pilot did not have time to eject or couldn’t.  Dane had to go in and rescue him but he was not a man, but a military trained hi tech pilot.

     He cut’s the pilot away noticing the weight is less for a normal male pilot but keeps running before the bird blows.  As he was running a voice from his past says, “Hell, Roberts when you said you’d always catch me, I was kinda hoping you meant before I hit the ground.”  It was faint but he knew who it was, Laura Jo.  Then, he when like the wind to get her to the medics.

     The last night of high school, she’d seduced his all-to-willing self at the senior bonfire-which was also the night before she left town.  Never returning any of his calls.  The way she eyed him that night as if she wanted him the way he wanted her, he thought they were starting something, not ending with just sex.

     As he gets her to the medics she looks up and says, “I’ll buy you a drink, for getting me out.”  He wanted so much more, he always did, that was the problem.  She went off to college and basic training to become the pilot she is and he joined CFR.  So, where do they go from here?

     I enjoyed this short for what it was a too short story.  I felt like there was not enough closure to the story.  Plus their lives in between high school and now would have been nice too.  4 stars out of 5.  Got this story free on Amazon.
