After surviving a horrific chemical attack that turned him into a metahuman, Captain Jamie Callahan got a second lease on life. For three years he’s been working for the Metahuman Defense Force and leading Alpha Team—all against the wishes of his family. The job requires his full dedication, so it’s no surprise Jamie doesn’t have time for a relationship. An enticing one-night stand with a gorgeous stranger is all it takes to show Jamie exactly what he’s been missing. When a mission to take down a terrorist cell brings that same stranger back into his world, Jamie’s life gets complicated.

A soldier with secrets.

Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan was only looking to relieve some stress after a long mission. He didn’t know the hot guy he picked up at a bar was the leader of the MDF’s top field team. When Kyle and his partner get seconded to Alpha Team to help fight a terrorist threat, he has to balance his desire for Jamie against his duty to keep his secrets safe. That gets harder and harder to do amidst regulations both are tempted to break.

Two men trying to survive.

Giving into passion could cost both their careers. Abiding by the rules will only result in heartache. An attack on MDF headquarters brings with it a choice Jamie and Kyle can’t escape—duty, or love?

In the Wreckage is a 100k word steamy m/m sci-fi military romance with a HFN ending. There is military violence within the story that may not be suitable for everyone, as well as explicit intimate scenes not suitable for readers under 18.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: A new terror has emerged in the form of splice, a chemical that attacks humans on a cellular level and either changes them or kills them. The majority of humans exposed are killed but a small percentage survive with abilities. These individuals are called metahumans.

To counterattack terrorists using metahumans as weapons a task force is formed called MDF. These individuals are tasked with shutting down terrorist attacks as soon as possible with minimal damage to the public. The Captain of this group is Jamie. Metahumans can both be good and bad as with anything else and the stigma that goes with them runs deep.

Kyle is a metahuman along with his adopted brother. They both have kept their metahuman status a secret especially from the strike force unit they are part of. They are loaned out to MDF to help them with their case when things come to light making them part of the team permanently.

Jamie and Kyle meet at a bar before they know who the other is and have a wild night of passion. I loved this story. There are a lot of twists and turns as well as revelations that bring the story to a riveting climax. Needless to say there is a lot of edge of your seat action scenes that had me holding my breathe.

I am looking forward to reading more in this series. Fantastic read.
