Blurb: 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?
Review: An action packed novella that left me smiling.
Finn is all alpha male and buttkicking soldier. He’s a British cop on loan to the elite Norwegian Emergency Response Unit, who police for terrorist activities in Norway and out into the Norwegian Sea. Highly trained and deadly, he’s got a soft spot for nerds, especially if they have glasses. Once he heard Niall’s Scottish accent he was gone.
Niall is an introverted nerd whose small, slim stature hides a fierce courage. He has more sass than he realizes and while he loves that Finn is bigger and physically stronger, Niall doesn’t have any problem making his desires known, in and out of the bedroom.
Niall’s job as a decommissioning engineer of oil rigs for a huge Norwegian company brought him and Finn together and if they aren’t very careful and extremely brave it might be what kills them.
I loved that Niall was a hero in their situation. Of course Finn was too, but that’s his job and he did it well, but Niall totally rocked it.
Niall and Ewan were great together, they have such a healthy dynamic. It’s always nice when siblings have strong friendships as adults.
This is a short story so everything happens quickly. I enjoyed the romance and the way both wanted more but were afraid to ask for it, nothing like a life and death situation to put things in perspective. These guys were so hot for each other every time they were together, barring the life in peril portions, they were tearing up the sheets.
Fun, sweet, sexy, cute and entertaining. I enjoyed this brief interlude of excitement, danger and love.
