I’m not quite sure where to put this book it’s a romance story but not a type of romance that most readers expect. It’s a soldier saga, no…it’s a suspense tale. What it is…is terribly shallow.
It’s a whole lot of thinking about sex, talking about sex, fantasizing about sex, with a final, single sex act. And it’s dressed up as if it were a futuristic post-apocalyptic world, which it isn’t. The only slightly genre-related plot devices are references to some terrible WWIII and some fancy high-tech gadgetry…which is probably already in use in Area 51.
I always try to finish a review book that I start. Which I did. Finally. Note to author: Please don’t write the sequel. Go to a writing workshop and learn how to plot. It wasn’t terrible writing, just a poor story. ~~ Catherine Book
