This book was recommended to me by one of my m/m reading buds...and I'm so glad she told me about it, because I loved it so much.
This is a sci fi military romance set a few hundred years into the future, but the world is enough like ours that it never got confusing or to be too futuristic.
Jamie is the captain of his metahuman team. Three years before they were out on a mission and were exposed to Splice...a drug that kills most people exposed to it. Those that it doesn't kill, they turn into metahumans with superhuman skills...skills that are different from person to person. Jamie now has superhuman strength. His team is made up of five others who were changed with him. The team issue...they can't find a sniper to fit in with this really tight team.
After a particularly bad day, Jamie goes out looking to lose his stress. He meets up with Kyle and they have an explosive one night stand...one that works for both of them, but neither one of them is in a place that they can seek out anything more, regardless of how compatible they are. So, it's particularly surprising when Kyle shows up the next day as Jamie's new sniper.
I loved this story so, so much. The twist took me TOTALLY by surprise. I had no idea that was coming. I loved the whole story line about Kyle and his adoptive brother and how close they are. On the flip side of that is Jamie and his team who are also incredibly close. Somehow the two have to mix. I loved it all.
I also really liked how much the two guys respected one another and their ability to do their job. They are in high stress, high danger jobs and with that goes a lot of trauma...both mentally and physically. There is a tie that binds them together through that shared stress that they don't normally have in any other relationship. Every part of this story was so, so good.
This book was wonderful and it's set up an incredible series. I cannot wait for more. I love m/m books that are law enforcement/military based. This was an incredible example and I'm excited to add this series to my auto-read list.
This debut author brought her A game with this story! Brilliant story-line, amazing writing style, hot and steamy sex scenes....I LOVED this story and can't wait for the next book in the series.
However, I also thought the sex blotted out the plot at times and there didn't really seem to be an overarching plot line beyond 'these are metahuman soldiers who get set out on missions.' Yes, there were the good metahumans and the bad metahumans and theoretically neutral, civilian metahumans (though you never see one). But there was no apparent central villain or single disaster they were aiming to prevent, at least not as far as I could tell. So, it felt a little strung together and random. Plus, becoming metahuman was supposed to be rare, but there sure seemed to be an endless supply of them.
Also, while the writing was good for the most part, it did occasionally fall into heavy telling passages and occasionally the 'I'll use my powers to...' came across as cheesy. There were also a few really Hollywood scenes that stretched my credulity too far.
While I really liked Jamie and Kyle and I liked them together. There was not enough development in their romance to believe. I totally saw that they clicked sexually, but then suddenly they're falling in love and I couldn't fallow that at all. It's not quite insta-love, but it's pretty darned close.
Lastly, as much as I liked everyone, I had a hard time keeping up. There were a lot of characters, all of which had multiple names and it was really easy to get lost in it.
Note: The author sent me a copy, however I chose to read and review it.
