Part 2 will be on the 31 what were some of your favorites this year :)
This new Mission series sets your heart pounding right away! We begin with Athan finding Tendra. Scaring her to death is only part of his charm. He is also really attracted to his charge. Duty must win over lust, since he needs to get her to his brother immediately to save the human race.
Tendra AKA "Ten" is a very personable and sincere loner. She is surprised that she can feel such strong emotions for Athan - that is not hate. He is very attractive, and her heart goes pitter patter anytime he even looks at her. If only she could be his...
This book charmed me almost from page one. The characters were strong, but not overbearing. I think the lore makes people feel like vampires should be - but I am glad in this book the MC is not. I love their story and I absolutely cannot wait for the next installment in this amazing new series! I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
I haven't been doing that great with reading (or reviewing when I do read) lately. But I want to make more of an effort again. So I'm going to try and put my thoughts into words for this one.
What can I say?
Megan and Santino are the perfect writing due. I get excited every time I see there is going to be a new book in this series and each book has been a hit for me so far. Each book. I am not exaggerating. I love them. They are like crack.
This is a lot lighter than the previous book in the series, Hard Wired, which might be a bonus for some.
Beau and Zane like it rough. And sexually, they're compatible, but they do not like each other. Which is a shame, because compatible. But like every good enemies to lovers romance should have, they start to warm up to each other once they continue getting hot and heavy. Then feelings grow and they start wanting more from their relationship.
Both characters were great. Zane wasn't afraid to distance himself from his crappy family, but also loved his grandmother and had a great relationship with her. Beau was doing his best to recover from what his ex did to him, tried to add some positivity to the world, but was also able to admit in the end that a lot of it was forced. I loved that he supported Zane with his channel and wanted to see him succeed. I loved Zane's honesty and the fact he wasn't ashamed of himself.
Some amazing secondary characters here, too. Zane's grandma for the win!
I will admit to cringing at one particular scene and wanting to bang my head against a wall. I saw the incident coming a mile away and knew something would happen, but Lord was it brutal. Took away from my enjoyment a little, tiny bit. Not a whole lot, though, and I would still recommend this!
After a decade of serving in the Army, everyone still expects me to be Dominic 'Nicky' Costigan--the skirt-chasing player. They don't know I've been spending my days trying to figure out my post-military life. Including how to pick up guys.
When I meet Luke on a hookup app, he makes it clear it's for one-night only. That's fine with me, because I'm down to see what this silver fox can do. But after I arrive at his doorstep, it doesn't take long to realize we have serious chemistry, and we end up meeting again.
He's got more walls around his heart than a military base, but I think he's as addicted to me as I am to him. He can't resist me for long. I mean, who can? Except Luke's rules exist for a reason, and when I test his limits, things get complicated. Maybe too complicated
This is a great book with an unlikely hero in Nick.
This book tackles a lot of crazy topics and it comes out on top. What is it like to be a working class guy in all the ways who discovers he is bisexual? How do you readjust to leaving the service? How do you come home when the messy family life you left behind is still there and you have grown up but no one else has? How do you balance your needs and wants against your kin's?
Nick is brash and rude and a real jerk in the first book in the series but we see that he is a heart of gold character who really risks himself in all ways and loves deeply. He is charming and silly and intense.
Lucas has been burned in relationships and is raising his teens. He doesn't see Nick coming and has to learn to love and trust again to really have joy.
Oh, and it is all hot as hell.
