Read an Excerpt
I was going to war.
My first deployment was really hard on everyone. Myself included. Maddie was about to graduate college and there was nothing I could do to stop my deployment. In the military, you don’t get to call the shots. I wanted to be there for her. I wanted to be there to hug her, to celebrate with her. I wanted to be the man I was supposed to be. But, maybe I was. Maybe the man I was supposed to be could do both. I was sure as fuck going to try. There was nothing I could do to properly portray how much I would miss her smile in my life every day. She’d never understand how much I would worry about her. I tried to tell her. I tried to show her—in some of the dirtiest ways possible—that I wasn’t going anywhere. That she was mine. I was hers. War wouldn’t tear us apart. We wouldn’t be one of those statistics. Plus, the Air Force would be in and out of this conflict in no time.The problem with my plan was that we weren’t in and out of the conflict in no time. When I enlisted, I knew there was a chance I’d go to war. I didn’t think it was likely, but I realized it was a possibility. I wasn’t a fucking moron. I also knew there was a chance I could very well die serving my country. That was a sacrifice I decided I was willing to make without consulting with my new wife. I never asked her how she felt about it. Later, I would learn to regret never asking her opinion. She might’ve told me how much she’d hurt without me. My little copilot, having to pilot life on her own. She always did a fine job, but I know now that she always wished I was there to keep her on course.But when I’m honest with myself? I would’ve chosen the same anyway. Saving lives? That’s a feeling I’m unable to describe. Saving kids, being the one to save my brothers and sisters at war, knowing I could save the life of an innocent civilian? That’s what I was supposed to be. That was what I was always supposed to be, even before I knew it. I just hoped I didn’t lose the only woman I would ever love over my need to do something for the greater good.It had been nice stateside, pretending war wasn’t looming in the background. I never thought it would actually happen, not to an extent where I would need to be deployed. Wars were a thing of the past, right? But, when terrorists attacked Americans on United States soil, it was only a matter of time before we got called to serve. That whole thing happened rather quickly. I went from being a pretty carefree, happily married young man, the man that loved coming home to my wife every night and fucking her in ways that only I knew how. I equally loved holding her hand during a movie night on the couch or having her crawl into my lap and go to sleep as I played video games. Life was easy. It was good. Life was unreal.But life got real. Shit got real. Shit got real in a real big fucking hurry.
Seth and Madelyn Blaise always knew that they would be together. They just fit.
Married when Madelyn is just 19. The couple vow that whatever challenges life brings, they will face together.
But when Seth decides to pursue his dream of joining the Air Force and becoming part of their elite Pararescue Corps. Both their love and their bond are tested in ways that neither Seth nor his wife could ever imagine. Ways that you as the reader will never forget.
Seth and Madelyn Blaise's story is one the military families the world over live everyday. A story which speaks to the power of love, the value of service, and the strength of the human spirit in the face of adversity. Even when said adversity comes closer to home in an unimaginable way.
Flightpath is a love story through and through. But not just a love story in the romantic sense. This is a story about a man's love for his wife, his life, his baby, his country, his job, his service, and his world. It is the story of a wife and her love of her husband, her child, her family, her world...and all the things they both do to protect and cherish all that they each hold dear.
Following Seth's military career from it's start, through to its rather dramatic end. This heartwarming dual perspective read gives an up close and personal view of military life from both sides. With each side receiving equal weight within the read.
Readers can't help falling in love with this honest and forthright story of two people doing all they can to keep their relationship, lives, and love on course.
This is a love story that you will want to read again and again. Especially if you are a fan of movies like The Lucky One and An Officer And A Gentleman.
*Reviewer's Note: Bring tissues!!! You will definitely need them.
This book is part of a companion collection and may be read as a standalone.*
