Book Excerpt from Plugged by Jill Cooper

We are excited to participate in the book tour for Plugged, the second book in Jill Cooper's Rewind Agency series.  I have both Plugged and 15 Minutes on my reading list.  We have an excerpt from the book to share with you today.  Be sure to check out the other stops on the book tour for review, guest posts, and more!

I received a complimentary copy of this book for use in my review.  All opinions are my own.

Quick Summary of Plugged:  A Rewind Agency Novel.  Lara Crane is stuck in her mind, in an indefinite stream of timelines where her life is perfect, just the way she wants it to be. But it's not real. It's all made up to give those who want to use time travel for their own personal ambitions. To give time to finish their experiments and turn Lara into a deadly time travel assassin. If Lara wants to survive and to stop them, she needs to risk her own mind and soul to get out of a prison so perfect it completes the one dream Lara has always had.   Family.  

Excerpt from Plugged by Jill Cooper.
The walls of my cage are made of plexi-glass and I am in the center of a large room.
 
I tear the electrodes from my head and slide my legs over the side of the bed. I’m wearing white sneakers and matching hospital scrubs like I’m a patient but what I am is even worse. When I stand, my legs wobble and I grab the edge of the bed to stabilize myself.
 
Somewhere a door opens and I hear footsteps approach. There’s a small clack as a heel meets the floor. Not enough to be a woman. I sneer as I grab the only chair in the room and fling it at the plexi-glass. It won’t break, but I’m so angry I can’t contain myself.
 
Rex has the face of my step-father, Jax. But his hair is black instead of blond and there’s a nasty scar down the side of his face. He glances at the chair and up at my face. His smirk makes me want to tear at his flesh and I would if the glass didn’t separate us.
 
“You told me I could keep Donovan. I need him. Give him back to me.” My hands clench into fists even though there’s nothing I can do. I’m a rat in a cage, a highly functional, time traveling rat, but when in the cage, I’m completely at their mercy.
 
“And you, my darling Lara, require some additional motivation. I could promise you a room with a comfortable bed, some music, but I know that wouldn’t be enough for you. But Donovan…” Rex smiles and I quiver from a sudden rush of cold.
 
I cross my arms. “Bring him back. Turn it into a flesh wound.”
 
Rex raises his eyebrows. “Sorry, I can’t do that, darling. That’s up to you.”
 
My heart stutters. “Me?”


About the Author.  I could write this in the third person. I could tell you what I like, where I was born, and what my favorite things are.

But instead, I'll say I don't want to write like everyone else. I don't want to craft stories you've read a thousand times before. I want my novels to be a cinematic experience, blending themes, genres, and situations unlike any you've ever read.

I want to break the rules. I want you to break out in a cold sweat as you read my books out of fear, love, and excitement. I want my books to be an experience. When you finish, I want you to feel something. Good or bad.

If you do, then I'll have succeeded. If not, I'll keep trying.
