In a post-apocalyptic future, the Agency works behind the scenes to take down opposition groups that threaten the current government. Their goals justify all means, even when it comes to their own agents.

In the newly revised Director’s Cut of Evenfall, the second volume follows Sin and Boyd through a long-term undercover mission in Mexico. They think the hardest part will be maintaining their covers and handling their attraction while living in close quarters, but that’s only the beginning of their newest trials.

When hard and fast decisions lead to catastrophic consequences, the two agents realize getting out of Mexico alive may be their biggest challenge yet.

Warnings: Explicit violence, sex, physical and psychological abuse.

REVIEW:

First of all, this was the hot! This book revolved around their first mission, which took place far from the agency. They were in a small studio sized apartment together and thought they had different jobs leading up to the actual mission, they had no real way of being separate from each other. Since there was so much sexual tension built up between the two, the sex scenes were amazing. In fact, it had to be the hottest sex between two secret agents I’ve ever read.

Though this book ends in a hopeful way, I feel like ominous things are in the air for Sin and Boyd. However, I’m hoping the future books will bring some kind of break with the agency. I don’t know if I’ll be able to hold out on reading the updated versions of books 2-4. I’m going to try though.

RATING: Crazy about it!

REVIEW:

Boyd’s mother works for a secret agency and has decided to bring him on to be the partner of the highly dangerous, Sin. Though Sin tries everything possible to drive Boyd crazy, they end up falling for each other. They realize they want to be together, but they have to get past the agency and Boyd’s mother before that can happen.

Excellent action and romance. I love it! Both Boyd and Sin are damaged goods, but in this way, they are perfect for each other. Sin; the super sexy, extremely dangerous, and possibly psychotic secret agent is not so scary when paired with the timid, androgynous beauty Boyd. Although there’s a rocky start to their relationship; with almost every touch leading to an argument or misunderstanding, there is certainly love in the air and I’m hoping to see a lot of it in part II.

Book Review: Reifu Rising

TITLE:     Reifu Rising8039386

AUTHOR:     Becca Abbott

PUBLISHER:     Fan Fiction

LENGTH:     424 Pages

BLURB:

This is a sci-fi/vamp story. It’s about visitors to a new world, running from their enemies, inhabited by primitive humans living by strict religious rules. After an illegal human hunt Sid,a thief, is taken by the Crown Prince, Loki, as a pet. What ensues is a great adventure encompassing the vampires, the humans who live without technology and a secret group trying to rule over everyone.

Loki was an ilthiyan prince, one of the vampire race who existed uneasily with the humans on the planet of Gaia. In the middle of a hunt on human lands, he captured a spirited young human male. Sid was a thief and an outcast, and to be captured by a vampire seemed only the latest misfortune in a life defined by them. But Loki decided to keep Sid instead of kill him and that decision would thrust them both into a whirlwind of treachery, intrigue — and love.

REVIEW:

Such an awesome book; I loved it. Although Sid lives in a world where vampires colonize humans for their food source, Sid is far from being livestock. He is wild and strangely appealing to the vampire prince Loki who captures him. I wondered at first if Stockholm Syndrome was at play, but there seems to be something more biological, like a chemical reaction. If love was a drug, this is the only way to really describe it. I was completely drawn in by Loki’s transformation as a character. His ability to put himself in Sid’s shoes and to realize the hurt he caused him was heartbreaking and perfect. I was also drawn to Sid’s pain and insecurities as well as his ability to submit even though it was not what Loki asked of him. This book was full of action and had a solid plot within a very vivid and appealing world, but the main appeal was the love between Loki and Sid. If only there was a sequel.

RATING: Crazy about it! I will read it again!
