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.

Will the trio find love while on the run?

Reader Advisory: This story contains m/m intimacy as part of a polyamorous relationship, non-consensual sex, sexual assault and graphic violence.

My View:

I liked this book a lot more than book one. This one felt more cohesive and compelling. It was very much an insta-love situation but it worked well for me. I loved Rock, I loved Se, and Zander really fit well with them both. The chemistry was there and I was totally invested in this story as I had to see how this threesome would work.

I do have to say I found the villain to be fascinating and I wish there would have been more time devoted to why he was as he was instead of ok his actions. I am not sure why so much time was dedicated to the torture scenes as they really did not add anything to his character or my understanding that he was the big bad evil. I wanted more about his pathology and his history. He almost stole the show for me but in the end I was left wanting.

For a bit I thought the author was going to do more with the research plot and give us a bit of angst and suspense, but no, this story was really just about the romance beating the big bad. I really enjoyed what was presented, but man this one had great potential to be awesome.
