Blurb: Spunky commander Berit Turner is known for two things: his huge libido and his lack of a filter—he says what he thinks. Berit sets his mind on being part of a mission to Ligador to make sure the planet is habitable for humans. He’s ecstatic when his team is assigned to the task force. A delegation of Nadisc, a humanoid alien race, accompanies them, and passion ignites between Berit and their commanding officer, Tom. But Berit is determined that Tom is just another notch on his bedpost, as he doesn’t do relationships.
The excursion to Ligador goes wrong from the beginning, when they discover Ligador has been established as a breeding station by their worst enemy: the Tash’Ba. Dinosaur-like creatures become the team’s worst nightmare, and staying alive is going to take everything they’ve got… and then some.
Berit isn’t the usual type of commander, he has absolutely no filter and constantly gets himself into trouble but that doesn’t stop him from being a damn good commander. When he’s part of a mission tasked with determining if a planet is habitable, he’s forced to work with a delegation of Nadisc who’s commanding officer, Tom, has Berit tied up in all types of knots. When their mission goes horribly wrong, will they be able to survive the danger they’ve unintentionally walked in or will their newfound relationship end before it even begins?
Holy cow! I was not expecting this story when I started it! I won’t deny that I’m an avid fan of Chris T. Kat’s and a HUGE sci-fi fantasy fan so when I saw this one, I wanted to read it right away. And I’m so glad I did because this story was absolutely AMAZING! One of my favorites this year for sure! It has an interesting world about planet exploration mixed with dinosaur-like creatures! I was absolutely captivated by the storyline because it had so much action and suspense to it that it left me on the edge of my seat for a majority of the story.
The great thing about this book was the characters, though. I absolutely adored Berit and Tom together. They were such opposites but they fit so well together. Berit was impulsive, emotional and stubborn while Tom was stoic, calm and possessive. I loved his possessiveness over Berit and how Berit had to come to terms with what Tom really meant to him.
In the end, this was a phenomenal story. I was drawn in right from the start and all the action kept my interesting throughout the story. Add to that, I just adored Berit and Tom’s journey through the planet AND their relationship. I’m glad this is the start of a new series because I can’t wait to read more in this world!
Overall Impression: It was amazing!
