Quickshot is a great quick little story about a Sal, a freelance cargo hauler with a quick trigger finger who meets up with sexy Devin Kyle, a wanted man. A quick move puts Sal in Devin’s lap for a less-than-quick really hot kiss and the start of a beautiful relationship. Once Sal decides she wants Devin, she is quick to get them both naked.
Corny theme? With a title like Quickshot, what did you expect?
Just so you know, there is a lot more to it than a quick roll in the space ship. Oops, sorry.
Quickshot is non-stop adventure, danger, and going from the frying pan into the fire. There is some hot loving. There are colorful characters and an evil bastard that is a common enemy to the heroine and hero. Sal gets to come to the aid of Devin, and since this is an equal opportunity rescuing type of story, Devin will get return the favor.
As a short story, many of the events in Quickshot take place off the page. Too many in my opinion. Which is really saying that I wanted it to be longer. That is a common complaint for short stories, I know. But that is what happens when you get wrapped up in a story with a character or two you’ve gotten interested in. On the other hand, a longer story might have a different name and that would totally mess up my earlier ‘quick’ theme.
If you need something to fill an hour or less, but you don’t want to skimp on characters or adventure, Pippa Jay’s Quickshot is a the book you should pick up. Quickshot will be released on March 31, but is available for pre-order now.
