Release Date: February 2, 2015
Genre: Erotic Romance, M/M, Contemp, Action/Adventure, RomSuspense
Officer Finn Hallan has never run from a fight. With Niall’s life and love at stake, he’s not about to start now…
Finn Hallan is a member of the elite Norwegian Emergency Response Unit, code name Delta. When the team is sent to respond to a hostage situation on an oil platform in the Norwegian Sea, he has to face demons he thought he had buried a long time ago.
Scottish engineer Niall Faulkner’s skills in oil platform decommissioning takes him to the Forseti platform at the worst possible time. When he’s captured by terrorists, his only thought is that he will never get to tell his lover how he really feels.
Can Finn keep Niall alive? Or will they both die at the hands of hijackers in the frigid waters of the Norwegian Sea?
Niall Faulkner is an engineer working with companies to decommission oil platforms safely and ecologically. He spends a lot of his time on oil-rigs with a few meetings each year to give safety talks to the oil company employees back on land. His life consists of routine and he never expected to fall instantly in lust at one of the meetings, which were normally quite dull affairs, even for him.
Finn Hallan is Niall's every dream come to life: he's drop-dead gorgeous, over six-foot tall and towers over Niall and he exudes sex-appeal from every pore. It doesn't help that Finn is part of Delta, the Norwegian special forces team that protects the seas around Norway, and the oil fields Niall works on. Niall always did have a soft spot for a man in uniform and Finn fits his uniform very well.
Finn too is enamoured straightaway with the nerdy scientist in his glasses, who stumbles more than walks and seems out of his depth. Finn thinks it's adorable and he sets his sights on Niall.
Now, normally I am not one for a book where two characters meet and fall into bed together straightaway, but boy did it work for these two characters! The sexual tension simmered between them from the beginning and the love scene itself was so hot I was surprised I didn't burn my fingers holding my Kindle. It was passionate, sensual, erotic and romantic too.
Their one night stand turns into Niall and Finn getting together a few times over the next few months, but Finn rarely stays the night and Niall wonders where it's all going.
He's in love with Finn, but Niall doesn't really do love, or he never has before. That all changes when Niall is taken hostage on board an oil-rig he was set to decommission by terrorists.
Although a short novella, the book is a complete story. It has eveything you need; romance, adventure, tension and the hottest love scenes I've read in a book for a long time. Finn and Niall were wonderful, I adored both of them and you'll be rooting for them to get their happy ever after. An excellent read.
