Blurb: A Marine with honor.

After surviving a horrific chemical attack that turned him into a metahuman, Captain Jamie Callahan got a second lease on life. For three years he’s been working for the Metahuman Defense Force and leading Alpha Team—all against the wishes of his family. The job requires his full dedication, so it’s no surprise Jamie doesn’t have time for a relationship. An enticing one-night stand with a gorgeous stranger is all it takes to show Jamie exactly what he’s been missing. When a mission to take down a terrorist cell brings that same stranger back into his world, Jamie’s life gets complicated.

A soldier with secrets.

Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan was only looking to relieve some stress after a long mission. He didn’t know the hot guy he picked up at a bar was the leader of the MDF’s top field team. When Kyle and his partner get seconded to Alpha Team to help fight a terrorist threat, he has to balance his desire for Jamie against his duty to keep his secrets safe. That gets harder and harder to do amidst regulations both are tempted to break.

Two men trying to survive.

Giving into passion could cost both their careers. Abiding by the rules will only result in heartache. An attack on MDF headquarters brings with it a choice Jamie and Kyle can’t escape—duty, or love?



A slow start, but once it took off, I was loving it. Seriously, at one point I was considering putting it down and starting something else, but then it just clicked, I never looked back, and I can’t wait to see what’s coming up next.

Jamie and Kyle are two extremely powerful, special ops, alphas, from different military branches, who just so happen to meet while both are in civilian clothes in a civilian bar…and they make the most of a night of some dynamic, off the wall, break the bed sex. But Jamie is a metahuman; one of the rare survivors of a virus that either gives you special superhuman powers, or kills you. And Kyle has secrets. They kill it in the sack, never expecting to see each other again.

Then Kyle, a sniper, is placed on loan to the metahumans…and now reports to Jamie. And now the fun begins. As I said above, it was a slow start, but once the pieces were in play, I was all in and committed. This is great paranormal, military, alpha male, hardcore sex, and lots of action story. If that sounds like your kind of book I would recommend you give this one a try.

Overall Impression: I really liked it!

*I received a copy of this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.*
