Tech genius Noah Kim works day and night to keep the survivors at Blue Mountain Base with lights, power and hot water. He’s also working on a top secret project to help keep them safe. He’s tired, stressed and under pressure—and one woman adds to it all. An annoying, infuriating redhead he calls Captain Dragon.
Captain Laura Bladon lost everything she cared for in the alien invasion: her loving family, her Navy SEAL fiancé and her military career. Since then, she’s been numb, her feelings encased in ice, and she’s dedicated herself to her job as chief interrogator and running the base’s prison. But one person can get under her skin in an instant—arrogant, brilliant Noah. He’s the one thing that makes her feel—and that makes her very afraid.
But as Laura helps Noah on his project, the two are drawn irresistibly together. As they head into the desert with Hell Squad on a mission to a hidden alien outpost, sparks fly and a passionate desire is uncovered. Both are holding onto past hurts, scared to take the risk of loving again…but when the unthinkable happens, it changes everything…and Laura and Noah must find the power to save themselves, their friends and their love.
I'm loving these books that chart life on Earth after an alien invasion. Yes, it's futuristic with technology that astounds but it's not full of gobbledygook that makes the readers eyes boggle. There's just enough to make it believable and then of course, there’s the wonderful addition of amazing characters.
The plot usually revolves around the Squads who regularly put their lives on the line but this time, geek lovers rejoice! Noah, the resident tech genius, steps into the spotlight and boy does he do it in style. He is constantly under pressure and yet always fighting to save those around him. It's a shame not everyone sees how hard he tries and there's a certain Captain Dragon who really pushes Noah's buttons! Oh yes, Laura might be in charge when it comes to prisoners but when it comes to her libido, it's clear all bets are well and truly off! Expect fireworks, passion, and more than a little angst as this couple start to really let themselves go!
A teensy bit of a cliffhanger ending but I'm fine with that because I can't wait to find out what happens next.
