My Rating: 4 Stars
A short, sexy, and exciting read, Never Gonna Desert You combines f/f romance and science fiction. Brook and Melina’s love for each other is forbidden by Planet Core, but they will do anything and everything to be together, and it may cost them their lives.
Even with it’s short length, I found myself very invested in this story and he characters. The political intrigue of a corrupt dystopian society provides the backdrop for the spicy romance between the two women. Sizzling, stolen moments between the couple mix with scenes where they must run and fight for survival and a nearly impossible love. The plot has some twists and turns and quite a few surprises.
A fun, quick read for romance, sci-fi, or dystopian fans alike, Never Gonna Desert You has the right mix of world-buliding and spicy romance. Though Brook and Melina’s story reaches a satisfying conclusion, the intrigue and action of The Underground is just beginning: I’m eagerly anticipating the continuation of this series.
” ‘I love you. I always have. And I promise you, I will never desert you again. I will be glued to your side for the rest of my life.’ “
*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
“Let’s go, Malock.” Jager raised his eyebrows. “Or did you change your mind?”
She stood and released a deep breath. Even with her trepidation, she refused to back out now. Melina waited for her. “No, I’m looking forward to seeing Airondelle for myself.”
Brook spun away and rushed to catch up with her comrades. If she revealed her plans, she’d be stopped before she could find her lover. She would have to hide Melina right under their noses to bring her home. She pushed her shoulders back. I can do this. I have to.
The all-terrain vehicles sat loaded with equipment for the mission in front of the swirling mass of the portal. Her father certainly wasn’t wasting any time getting a team back to Airondelle. Crewmembers already filled the first vehicle, so she hopped into the back of the second.
Jager passed around everyone’s mission directives then shoved in on her left. Thank goodness he was the last to load. With his bulk, he occupied both of the remaining seats.
Before she had time to read her personal orders, they proceeded into the portal. She passed through the spinning matter, her body pulled and stretched in every direction. Unknown forces pushed on her chest, making it difficult to breathe. She gripped the seat, hoping she wouldn’t get pulled out. But the awkwardness didn’t last long. The transporter room light years away, clean, fresh air poured into her lungs. The alien vegetation of the foreign planet lined the rough dirt road they traveled. She yearned to explore the flora and fauna on a more intimate level. And she would, after setting up camp.
She opened the folder with her mission directive inside. Instead of the stack of papers detailing what Planet Core expected of her, she found a single sheet.
Her father’s handwriting scrawled across the page. You can never know the truth.
Hard, cold steel pressed against her temple. A gun. Her breath caught. What the hell is going on? She grabbed her knapsack and launched out of the vehicle.
