Mid week teaser

Thank you so much for all the well wishes for our anniversary, the response was touching! 🙂


You know what day it is so without further ado, here’s a little taste of chapter 37…

“…My post coital glow froze over rapidly, chilling me with a frightening terror. My heart stopped – completely, rendering me incapable of logical, practical thought. Fuck, fuck, fuck! With every skipped beat my breath came shorter, shallower, my mind singular in its focus – panic. That was what this was; pure, crippling, blind panic.

Just like Dr Flynn taught me the day before naming the emotion was what saved me from the attack that might have become full blown. That and Ray’s drill, a chanting distant voice in the back of my head to stay calm is what got me off my ass and racing to the team for help, finally letting the determination to help my husband override the fear that was holding me hostage.

The moment I burst into the room it was already on high alert. Collins was barking into the phone clutched between his tensed shoulder and ear, fingers flying over the keyboard with fevered strokes that could only spell trouble…”

Also, quick question: are you interested in reading some sessions between Ana and Flynn or do you want it to run in the background of the story, keeping the text about it implied rather that direct?

    Hi, thankk you the midweek teaser. To answer your question I would prefer the Dr Flynn sessions in the background.


  2. Lillimarlene says:

    Firstly, belated anniversary congratulations. I hope you had a lovely day. As for Flynn sessions, they could be interesting, Ana still has some personal issues.

    Thank you for the teaser…can’t wait for Friday! 🙂 I am interested in Ana and Dr. Flynn’s conversation.


  4. Katherine says:

    Ah come on now!!!!
    I can’t cope with this what the hell is happening to Christian?!
    Oh no this is awful
    Next week I really mean it I am not reading the teaser 😦
    I think you are getting a little too much enjoyment out of these teasers?!
    I am happy to read anything that you write so I will leave it up to you as to whether you include Dr Flynn’s sessions with Ana or not x


  5. Danielle J. says:

    Come on Friday!!! I won’t say more than that. As for Flynn, I think it should remain implied and in the background for now. Too many other intense situation to over shadow it right now. Just small tidbits in her wondering thoughts is enough. (Like you did in the teaser)

    And the teaser is very testing!!!!!😯


  6. Mercia says:

    Thanks for the teaser Monique… I think??
    As to, Ana and Dr Flynn; would it be possible to write their sessions into the main story line, as a, flashback? You write so well, Monique, I think, whatever way you decide, will be great!. In the meantime, too many more of these, cliffhanger endings, and I will be needing Dr Flynn too! xx


  7. Shanon Axtell says:

    Hi Monique–
    First, THANK YOU so much for writing this! I’m spellbound every week. I’m so grateful that I found this blog. Belated Anniversary good wishes, as well. Regarding your question about Flynn/Ana sessions, I’d prefer for the most part that they be in the background. Perhaps if CG, Ana and Flynn all have a session together, then that should move to the forefront.


  8. Lenette says:

    Chapter 37 is gonna be good as always but can’t wait till its over & they’re back together (both in 1 piece)! As for your question, I think the Ana & Dr Flynn sessions would be better left in the background but this is your baby & you should do what you think is best. It will be great whatever you decide! x


  9. Marina says:

    ok… wait for Friday, anxiety …
    I am very interested in meeting between dr. Flynn and Ana, but as he wrote Lenette, you who write and let you the decision of where to place them, but rather in the chapter 😉
    I hope you had a great day yesterday happiness with your husband 😉


  10. aturner0530 says:

    As always… another great teaser… you never cease to amaze 🙂 Happy belated anniversary! I agree with “Mrs G”…a flashback of the conversations with Flynn and Anna would be good.


  11. grublue says:

    Flynn is my favourite Brit for now, so my answer is clear: YES!!

    I won’t comment on your teaser though because I do my best to ignore them. 😉


  12. Moire says:

    as we wait with bated breath – or is that “baited” ??? We are all so “hooked” on this story it is like a drug – can’t wait for the full chapter Hurry down Saturday a.m. I think I will be having to get stronger tea !!! LOL 🙂

    I think it would be good to keep Flynn and Ana as flashback with the occasional one on one short session(s)


  13. Kate says:

    First off congrats on the anniversary !!! We must be in totally different time zones!! Kansas is kind in the middle of nowhere !! Ha!! And in response to your question, I think either way you play it would be great….I like hearing about Flynn and Anna’s talks, but I also understand the others concern. After all this is your baby and you always fins a way to make everything just right!


  14. Maggie says:

    Awesome tease…about Flynn and Ana – personally, I really like his character and would love some insight into how he moves Ana past herself…keep it coming – pun intended. 😉


  15. Janien Meissner says:

    O, your teasers are sooooooo, you know what I mean! About the Ana-Flyn sessions, maybe you can use them to let us see how Ana is changing and what she is learning about herself. I think everybody wants you to hurry and end this them- not-being- together thing! Xx Janien


  16. Yuls says:

    I’ve been following your blog and I must admit that I love it, every Friday I wake up 15 minutes earlier so I can read the new chapter before going to work! Thank you much for giving us our Chrisitan fix….
    Is there a chance that you would write a fanfic about Gideon & Eva? I’ve been having trouble locating a fanfic for bared to you and reflected in you and I really loved their story and I need to get my Gideon fix as well!!!!
    Thank you for your amazing chapters and the teasers!! Keep up the good job!!!


    • Monique Lain says:

      Hiya, thank you for following. Glad you enjoy the story. I have a fan fiction one shot about Gideon and Eva in the side bar of this blog, see Crossfire one shot. There are also some other one shots for FSOG that you might enjoy, just scroll down, past the long chapter list, past the music and you’ll find them there. Let me know what you think. Happy reading x


      • Yuls says:

        Monique, I actually found your blog when I was looking for the “crossfire series” there are no many fanfic blogs about crossfire…. For FSOG I only follow your blog and another one with Christian’s POV, these are the best 2 blogs I’ve found and at the moment the only ones I’m interested in…. But I would also like to get my Gideon fix… 🙂


  17. Yuls says:

    I would also prefer Dr. Flynn and Ana’s conversation in the background!!!!


  18. Mary says:

    I like reading about the sessions btw Ana & Flynn


  19. FL fan says:

    Happy Belated Anniversary! I hope you had a wonderful celebration. I trust you to make the right choice about the Flynn sessions, but I think I’d prefer occasionally having them in the story and otherwise in the background.


  20. Sheila Hall says:

    Thank you for the teaser, I just cannot wait until Friday. Since I retired from work I have never bothered about Fridays, but since reading your Meander I seem to look forward to Fridays :). As for Ana and Dr Flynn meetings, well it is part of the story, so yes it should be mentioned. I will leave it up to you how much you want to add in the chapters.


  21. Sheila Hall says:

    p.s. Monique, just had a thought, if it is easier for you to write a one off Meander (like the Christmas/Valentine/Quickie) about Ana and Dr Flynn, then again I leave it up to you. We will all enjoy which ever you choose.


  22. cynthia says:

    So cannot wait for Friday…. It doesn’t look to good though. As for Ana and Flynn, Maybe some of it but not all of it…. Maybe there is something that we haven’t been privy to that she will tell him about…. IDK really up to you and what you write. Looking forward to your next update.


  23. Linda says:

    I think a session once in a while with Dr. Flynn would be fine, but not every week please and thank you.


  24. Heather B says:

    I always thought the therapy sessions between Gideon and Eva were totally awesome and totally captivating


  25. Valerie says:

    I love the therapy sessions also whether it’s between Ana/ Flynn or Christian/Flynn (or even Ana/Christian/Flynn:). It would be great to see Ana realizing why she actually ran from Christian so she can gain a better understanding of herself so it doesn’t happen again. I like the flashback idea; I also would like direct conversation between Ana/Flynn…just once in a while. That said, I really just LOVE anything you write Monique! You’re the writer, you decide 🙂


  26. cristal918 says:

    I would prefer it in the background as well 🙂 thank you so much for the mid week teaser 🙂


  27. Barbara says:

    Hi. Yes please re Ana and Flynn I appreciate all you do!


  28. Kari says:

    Thank you for the teaser, Friday can’t get her soon enough!!! I would like to see both some dialog with Ana and Dr. Flynn as well as some background references. She still has some issues that need to be sorted out.

    Thank you!


  29. Amy says:

    oh can’t wait for friday!! for some reason I didn’t get an email that you posted the mid week teaser so I came on her and was so surpised!!! 🙂


  30. carla says:

    as usual you look great. I’m looking forward to Friday … I’m very interested and have talks ana flyn because surely not get bored and you will understand better ana … I just hope christian ana and come back soon with a kiss monique 🙂


  31. Ucbear says:

    Hi Monique,
    I would prefer it in the background. I think we are desperately missing having Ana and Christian back together in the same house. I can’t wait till Friday- your story is an addiction!!!!!!


  32. HenryCavill4Fifty says:

    You are the maestro here. You’re decision. I think there is still so much story to tell without Flynn. When you think it’s important, use it. Maybe show how Ana is applying the tools.


  33. 1klkelly says:

    Good tease. Re: Ana/Flynn – Maybe split it up? (Implied/Direct). Whatever floats your boat! 🙂


  34. Diane says:

    I love the idea of peeking into the sessions with Ana and Dr. Flynn. I think they should be part of the main story, those details are the meat of the story and inform their actions and thoughts so much. Part of the reason why I was so gripped by FSOG was the psychology of it all; well, that and the hot, kinky sex. I would really like to see behind the curtain; what makes little Ana tick.


  35. Amy says:

    HI Monique! so I am sitting here w/ my coffee at 9:08am EST patiently waiting….are you posting today or will it be over the weekend? Of course I can’t wait to read chapter 37!!


  36. Roslyn says:

    It would be good to know what her fears and self-esteem issues could be and no one better than the good charlatan doctor can have a good theory behind the time ticking Ana. I would love to read what her sessions are like. If you are up to it.
