The fight to eradicate the Tash’Ba breeding stations continues, with spunky Commander Berit Turner and his Nadisc mate, Tom, in the thick of things. Sometimes it seems as though they’ll never locate and destroy them all. And there’s always the fear that the Tash’Ba have something else, something worse—if that’s even possible—lurking ahead.
As if things aren’t bad enough, Berit’s less than stellar past is threatening to bite him in the ass, and they’ve received alarming new information. The Tash’Ba Queen needs to use Earth as a place to hatch the egg of her successor. And if what she says is true, the new Queen will be even more voracious and cruel than her predecessor.
Berit, along with his team—Tom, Carson, Niyara, and Fleur—must do everything in their power to stop her. If they fail, Earth will be lost forever.
James Rodrick deserved a vacation. Running around the galaxy protecting people can be a rough road. His first officer was nicely settled and a cure for a deadly disease had been found. Time for a break. Alphonse Carter was not what the doctor ordered. A con man on the run does not a vacation make.
Alphonse Carter lived life high on the hog pretending to be something he wasn’t. His undercover identity was discovered and now he must flee before he is caught by the wrong side. Hijacking a captain with Alliance ties wasn’t in the cards, but he had to take what he could.
Review: The fourth installment of the Alliance saga opens with James Roderick on vacation. Well, actually, it’s more of a pity party, but let’s not quibble with details. James’ first mate oopsed up and fell in love and ran off to live with his lover. James is happy for them, but he wouldn’t mind finding his own “happy-ever-after”. Alphonse/Ali is up to his eyeballs in an undercover operation gone bad. He’s just trying to get off the planet and keep his ass alive.
If you’ve read my reviews, you are probably aware that I have a serious girl-crush on Jambrea Jo Jones. No one feeds my love of MM sci-fi like she does. Reward has all the action adventure, steamy sex…all through that space ship, and intrigue I’ve come to expect from JJJ. If you haven’t read the other Alliance books, relax…Reward does nicely as a standalone.
The guys of Reward are a bit rougher than some of her other male characters. James is an ex-Alliance pilot, who hates all this Alliance. He’s loyal and smart and a good guy to have around in a fight. Alphonse, on the other hand, fights dirty and is well…Alliance to the born. James and Alphonse’s attraction is immediate and off the charts. Sex is not a problem for these two. Unfortunately, that is the only easy thing in their lives, right now. The road to their HEA is littered with spies, betrayal, and oh yeah…literal bombs.
I loved everything about this book. But, especially, the fact that these two are all man. Alphas males to the core. They work hard, play hard and love hard. They also complement one another and do what it takes to keep the other safe and happy.
I think you should read this book, for no other reason, that to keep Jambrea feeding my addiction. I really need Angel’s story written faster. 😉 Highly recommend.
Blurb: Salvation: Can three people save each other?
Rock is a gun runner who was set in life. The only thing missing is a partner. He thinks it could be Sela, but he wants to be sure he isn’t after her because she reminds him of an old crush. When Dr. Alexander d’Ado explodes onto the scene, he is a goner. Can he have his cake and eat it too?
Zander is a scientist who lives for his work. He is usually oblivious to anything else. When his ship explodes around him can he find salvation in two roughened warriors? He has no idea why someone would be after him, but the three race to find out before someone kills him.
Review: Okay, let me start by saying that Jambrea Jo Jones is now among a handful of romance writers that do MMF the way I like it. There’s no leg of this triad that is stronger than the other. The love and the loving are divided evenly among all the lovers. That being said, Rock, Sela and Zander are the perfect Triad. Watching them fall is love was a true pleasure.
The first thing I liked about this book is that even though I jumped into the middle of series, I didn’t feel like I was missing key elements of the storyline. The world building and back-story were easy to follow. For those of you who did it right, Rave and Kain from the first book, Retribution, are in there and sexy as ever.
Favorite character? That would be a hard choice. Sela spends a lot of time trying not to fall in love with not one man, but two. Rock is such a he-man, but you always know that his heart is in the right place. Then there’s Zander, sweet geeky Zander who falls in love with two warriors and is constantly questioning his ability to pull his weight in their unconventional relationship.
I loved this book on every level. Whether in pairs or all together, the sex with these guys is off the chart hot. And not just erotic, get ya hot hot, but sensuous loving that allows each to be vulnerable with and strong for the others. I can honest say I’m looking forward to the next MM book, Freedom, scheduled to release 12/05/2011, like a kid at Christmas.
If you love a story with smoking hot loving, uber bad guys and a happy ever after, Salvation should definitely be on your to-read list. Trust me. You will not be disappointed. Excellent writing that you can always expect from Jambrea Jo Jones, fabulous plot twist and characters you can’t help but love. Highly recommend!!!
