Publisher's Summary

ZEC’K

Siobhan’s scent calls me to claim her, but I tell her the same lie I tell everyone else: I’m not interested in a mate. I focus on her delicious creations instead, even though she’s the one I truly crave.

I try to stay away, but I cannot. Everything draws me to her, and when I learn of her quest to find her sister, my mouth offers to help before my brain can stop it.

I’m a failed hunter, not worthy of a mate, and every moment alone with the tempting female tests my control. She thinks of me as her protector, but if she knew the thoughts I have about her, she’d run the other way.

SIOBHAN

Everyone is happily settling down in our post-apocalyptic fortress. But I can’t rest yet; I have to get to my sister. It was my last promise to her before communications went dark. Problem is, she lives across the country, and there are miles of bug-filled America between us. 

When Zec’k, the sexy hunter who delivers and trades for supplies with our little colony, offers to help, I jump on the opportunity. It’s supposed to be an easy trip, but everything that could go wrong does. And now, I’m not sure I’ll survive this mission without falling for my Xarc’n guide.

Even if you aren't looking, fate may find your one

I really liked this story. It was entertaining and enjoyable with a couple of exceptions. The characters were interesting and likable for the most part. There was some drama, angst, and violence. I enjoyed the bad guys (and bugs!) getting what they deserved.
The people at the compound were fun and definitely like family. Siobhan and Zec’k had been dancing around each other for awhile but Zec’k said that he wasn’t looking for a mate. Siobhan was attracted to Zec’k but she had kept that to herself. When Zec’k offered to help Siobhan with a favor it made them spend time together in a small area which gave them a chance to get to know each other better. I loved their happily ever after. I recommend reading this book.

Listening to the audiobook was very pleasurable as well. The narrators did a great job bringing the characters and the story to life. I recommend listening to the audiobook.

Alien road trip!

The heroine: Siobhan - When the alien insects first arrived on Earth, Siobhan and her sisters were on opposite sides of the country. Since the bugs destroyed so much of the technology, communication and transportation methods, they were stuck. Though Siobhan wants nothing more than to find her sister.

The Hero: Zec’k - he was a Xarc’n warrior but after a bad injury he quit to work for the hunters as someone who delivers food and supplies to the other warriors. Him and others that have been injured or have become older work in supply production and procurement on each of the planets they go to. They source local foods to make their high protein nutrition bars as well as weapons, translators and other products the hunters need to get the job done.

The Story: Siobhan has been attracted to Zec’k since she first saw him, but she knows that he is not one of the Xarc’n hunters that is looking for a mate. She knows he doesn’t want one, though she is still drawn to him and watches him whenever he comes to the compound where she has been living. On the other hand, Zec’k has also been drawn to Siobhan. Though he thinks he failed as a hunter and no human woman would want him as a mate.

Like the rest of the series, this book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. Troy Duran and Keira Stevens do the narration and both of them have pleasing voices which I have enjoyed throughout this series. I love the bugpocalypse plot and the storylines in each book. Each book having its own romance and different stories but all taking place in this dystopian world.

I liked these characters, both want something different than to just hunt and kill the scourge. They were both interesting characters with depth and I liked the storyline that they went to another place to look for the sister and encountered different problems than in some of the other books.
