VBT# One Major Mistake - Starr Reina


Today's Author Spotlight is Starr Reina and her new book "One Major Mistake" , here on The Phantom Paragrapher.




Book Excerpt :
A bullet whizzed by Pavel’s arm and he took cover again. He noticed the direction it was coming from and pointed to it for the others’ benefit. He looked at Nick then nodded toward a wide pole adjacent to the dumpster he hid behind. He covered while Nick changed positions. Michaels stayed behind the bin while Pavel charged forward and snuck next to a van. Bullets dinged the front of the vehicle. With police officers covering her, Michaels moved up next to him from the other end of the dumpster she was behind. Everyone covered each other until they were able to get closer. Pavel looked at Michaels, who nodded to the back end of a van. He walked back and found Jackson on the ground, bloody.
Pavel immediately went to his side. Jackson was still alert and seemed to be in a lot of pain. He was breathing heavy and holding his side. Sweat was pouring down his temples and forehead.
