Publisher's Summary

Have you ever had a bad day? Sergeant Paul Mitchell had. It was the kind of bad day where nothing went right, everything that could go wrong went wrong, and everyone died.

He knew that was always a possibility in the marines, but it really sucked when it happened to you: it wasn't your fault, and you still took the fall for everything.

With his career dead and buried, he's forced to make it as a freelancer; a jack of all trades but a master of none. Just when he thought life couldn't get any worse a couple of stupid kids proved him wrong...again. Now, the ex-marine needs to find a ship, a crew who won't ask too many questions, get off-world, and disappear into the black. Too bad the women he's signed on with have a few secrets of their own.

Life of a Freelancer contains graphic sexual situations, bad language, intense violence, and a guy doing what he has to in order to survive. You've been warned.

Fun but too much filler text

The story is a fun listen but has an annoying habit of going off-tangent wasting several minutes at a time.

Easily gets off course

The story isn’t terrible but every one minute of the story gets off track with about 5 minutes of nothing that has anything to do with the story just gets off course

long winded

I like this author a lot but he is very long-winded. he talks and talks and talks with tons of detail about basically nothing. courts and caballs is one of his series that are pretty good but it's the same way. this one's not bad and the adult scenes are decently written. but otherwise the rambling can get little tiring.

Tried

It's another Sci-Fi story centered around the idea that a futuristic space military will be exactly like planet side naval militaries, structures, hierarchies, ranks, and warfare ideology. Deal with this so much in Mil-Sci-FI genre due to things like Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, etc. borrowing from mostly U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine culture and methodologies, but c'mon.

Why would a future Non-Com and Officers have issues as if they were today's U.S. military? And even playing that out like that in pop-culture military stories is a bit much. While NCO's and enlisted joke about officers, at the end of the day and all throughout history, they've both worked together to achieve victories AND messed up together to cause losses. Full stop. This always bothered me when I was in the military, the whole "us vs. them" culture unless it was played up for laughs. But every story plays it up as it's the biggest thing going on in military culture. Officers don't know anything, all of the enlisted do. Not always the case. Very rare you find a military fiction story with competent officers AND competent NCOS and enlisted unless it's an uber pro-military story, which is fine, but I'm just saying.

That rant aside, the other problem I had is that this is a story that takes place a significant time in the future and the MC is tossing out common day and past cultural references as if this was an 80's or 90's movie. He's also pretty much the pop-culture military stereotype who can't say a full sentence without inserting military jargon almost as if the author found some military slang dictionaries, created a little bit of their own, and told themselves they did a great thing by having MC talk as if he couldn't talk like a normal person. Yes, military people use slang. No, not in every single sentence.

Aside from that, the dude was an uber jerk. Someone in another review said he has character development while another person said he never does. Oh, full disclosure, if the title of this review didn't imply it, I was unable to finish. I got halfway into chapter 2 and couldn't tolerate MC's inner monologues anymore about how everyone sucked other than him.

I may update this if I get further into the story.

Perfect Balance

I have been listening to a lot of harem/action/adventure/romance/fantasy style of books and by far this is one of the better ones I have listened to thus far. This book series, so far, has the perfect balance of action/adventure, violence, sex, and humor. I swear there was two parts where I burst out laughing. I just couldn't contain myself. Luckily I am in my own office or else someone might have thought I was nuts hearing me laughing at nothing while I was working.

Now a lot of these books in this style actually have a lot of sex scenes, and often enough they rush into them as well. To me this didn't feel like that. it was a slow roll into it and even then there was plenty of other things going on and it feels incredibly balanced with the rest of the story. Yes there are a couple scenes but he has been mostly in control and hasn't just been banging every one of his costars right away.

The mc is quite disgusting

He can’t get his mind of sex and gets horny over the smallest things. He supposed to be from the army so he should be disciplined but his mind is worse than a teenagers. Too many sexual references and other things when explaining ordinary stuff.
