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?
Having never read RJ Scott before, it took me a short while to get into it, but as soon as I did, I was hooked.
Alpha, Delta is a short, quick read (I read it in one sitting) and even in that short amount of time I was hooked on the action. There is romance between the two men — however, if you are not a fan of M/M romance, obviously, don’t read this.
I like that RJ Scott seems to have an even focus on the romance vs. the action in this book. A lot of M/M “romance” or “erotica” simply focuses on the “forbidden” aspect of the genre, instead of having any actual plot or character development. And, again, for a short book, she did both of these well.
There’s not much I can summarize that isn’t already in the book description, though I will say that even if you know absolutely nothing about military bases or oil platforms… You’ll still understand the book and follow along. It’s not written for geniuses or idiots — another happy medium met.
I don’t know if it’s worth $2.99 (which is its price on allromanceebooks.com ) but if you like M/M romance (as I do), sexy Scotsmen (as I do), and well-written stories, then grab it.
