Published: August 7, 2016 by Anna Hackett
Genre: Science Fiction Romance
For Hawk pilot Finn Erickson, flying is in the blood. Since the aliens decimated the planet, he spends most of his time flying Hell Squad into combat. With communication to other survivor bases cut off, he has no idea if his family is still alive and feels their loss keenly. But helping to fight back sustains him, and his quadcopter is the only woman he needs. She doesn’t argue with him…unlike a certain redhead who is one hell of a kisser.
Lia Murphy lost her mother and sister in the invasion. She vows never to get emotionally involved with anyone again, and as head of the drone team, she’s always busy with work. But one cocky, arrogant pilot pushes all her buttons. When Finn issues a challenge–a fly-off in the flight simulator–she can’t resist. But she’s not sure if she can accept what he demands as his prize if he wins…her. In his bed for one night.
But as Finn and Lia’s fiery attraction heats up, so does the battle with the aliens. The pair must work together to reestablish communications with other humans and discover what the aliens are hiding in a mysterious area to the north. In the process, they will face the most dangerous alien creature yet, and be tested to their very limits.
Once again, I am loving this alien invasion series and how it just keeps developing. Finn focused on getting communication with other survivors in hopes of finding a global plan to stop the Gizzida. This brings Finn and Lia together as they search for a supersonic jet that can drop a receiver deep in the ocean. Action and adventure are a key part of this series and every time I pick up the next book I just want to read it in one sitting.
In typical pilot fashion, Finn is a very confident but he’s thankfully not so cocky that he gets annoying. Not knowing if his family is still alive in Norway has made it hard for Finn to focus on a relationship. He’s not really sure when his feelings for Lia shifted but Finn hopes that a one night stand can help him get over this attraction. I enjoyed reading about Finn and I appreciated that when he makes a mistake he admits it and tries to make it better. Lia herself is very confident in her skills and I loved watching these two butt heads. Losing her twin sister in the invasion devastated Lia and she’s kept everyone at a distance ever since. Lia doesn’t want to feel that pain again but after a night with Finn she can’t keep her emotions locked down. These two had an uphill battle but I loved reading about it.
4 stars – it was enjoyable
