The heroine: Lia – When the EMP hit, Lia’s brother was murdered, she was abducted, repeatedly raped and beaten, and later rescued and brought to Castle Creek Whitetail ranch where a group of ex Force Recon marines had built a home which is ready for the apocalypse.
The Heroes: Cam and Travis – Two of the crew of Jarheads that work and live on Castle Creek Whitetail ranch which was outfitted better than any of the doomsday preppers in the state. There are alternate power sources, enough food for years, bunkers and more.
“They were ready to ride out the apocalypse in style!”
The Story: Nine months after Lia was rescued from the clutches of the men that stole her and killed her brother and Lia is finally starting to move forward. Cam and Travis were the only men she really trusted all this time, she still can’t look the other men in the eyes, but she had come a long way.
Though most of the men in the compound set Lia on edge, but two of them set her on edge in a whole different way. She sees how devoted Graham and Zach are with Rowen and she wants that as well, with Cam and Travis. She just isn’t brave enough to go after it.
Like the first book, this one was told in dual points of view and dual narration and narrated by Elena Wolfe and Connor Crais who do a great job and have terrific voices. Connor’s voice is deep and gravelly which works great for the huge alpha males and Elena has a soft voice which fits Lia perfectly.
This one was Novella length, and I enjoyed the story. Unlike Graham and Zach who have shared many women in the past even before Rowen, Cam and Travis were best friends but had never shared a woman before. When they both figure they are interested in Lia, they can’t decide who should make a move on her and who should step aside. This story was definitely short and steamy.
