Flash Bang by Meghan March
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌍
Character development: 😭😖😔😋🥰
The heroine: Rowan Callahan – she carefully planned her life and career as a lawyer and it was going downhill fast when a plane fell from the sky in Chicago, right on top of the building holding the vicious people that were bent on destroying her reputation. She knew immediately that something big was occurring and she ran towards her family farm in Michigan where her father prepared for situations just like this.
The Heroes: Graham Buchanan and Zachariah Sawyer – best friends since their military days, they led a Force Recon Team in the Middle East. After getting out, they opened a ranch for themselves and their brothers in arms, to make a new life for themselves. After the world went into Chaos, his team kept watch around the perimeter of the ranch like it was a military base in Afghanistan.
The Story: Rowen takes her backpack full of survivor gear, which was packed by her father on his last visit. It included about everything she would need to live off the grid, including a sleeping bag, a tent, a taser, a water filtration device and more. As she left the city, within ten minutes, looting had already begun, fires could be seen throughout the city, and gunshots could be heard.
Over a week later, Rowen is deep in the woods of Michigan and hears a scream coming from a farm when she sneaks up on the plate she sees a few men abusing a woman. She accidentally makes some noise and gives herself away and ends up being chased by the men and getting hurt in the process when she is intercepted by Graham.
The book was told in multiple points of view in dual narration by Elena Wolfe and Connor Crais. I really enjoy both of these narrators. Elena has a soft but clear voice and does different voices for supporting characters. She also does a great job showing emotions in her voice. Connor Crais has a deep sexy voice that worked well for Graham and Zach who were sexual beasts and had shared many women in the past.
I must say, I really liked this apocalyptic romance. It is nice that both the heroine and the Heroes were so prepared for the situation. Doomsday preppers are all paranoid crazy people until the things they are prepping for actually come to pass and then they are the best ones to be with when that comes. Though the guys weren’t really doomsday preppers like Rowen’s father, they were just military Heroes still living that life they left.
The menage aspect was super steamy and what could be better than two handsome tough elite military men to protect and love you during the apocalypse and I kind of love the fact that the apocalypse is just a regular one not a zombie apocalypse. I really liked the way this story went and how the relationship between Graham, Zack and Rowan progressed.
